If a Picture is worth a thousand words...make it a Forté Picture
What does unlimited printing rights mean? - This means you don't need my permission to print or use your pictures. Make a book, a poster, a canvas portrait, and/or Facebook galleries. They are YOUR photos! - You can take your photos anywhere to be printed. - Mpix.com is the company I highly recommend. They are reasonably priced and have a large variety of options. Also their site is easy to use and they have wonderful customer service.
What are retouched/edited images? Images that have stray hairs, blemishes, eyeglass glare and/or other issues determined at the viewing session need to be removed from the image.
How many photos do you take? - 200+ images for every session I shoot. -All the images will be high-resolution digital files; which have been edited, enhanced and are ready to print.
Where do you take the photos? - I have several local Macomb parks I love to photograph in with a variety of great backgrounds, but I am always open to your personal choice or favorite location; your backyard, family farm, school, etc.
George George Park – Clinton Twp. Heritage Gardens – Shelby Twp. Stoney Creek Metro Park - Shelby Twp. Waldenburg Park - Macomb
I feel that taking portraits outdoors allows the subject/s to relax and enables creativity to take over the experience.
Why is portrait photography so expensive? Please remember that even though I spend only an hour or two during the actual photo shoot, I also spend 5 to 6 hours on your photos doing post processing work; editing, enhancing and preparing your photos so that they are perfect and ready for you to print.
What's not included? The much need yearbook photo. Sorry, I have found that each school has a different background requirement and because of that wide variety, I have elected not to take stock in each of these. I also prefer to work outside of the box and be more creative.
Prints! You do not receive Prints! I will have your images on-line for your private viewing within 2 weeks of your shoot. After a viewing you images online, I like to schedule a 30 minute meeting to go over your pictures so in case you have any questions or concerns we can go over them in person. At that time the retouched images will be decided and within 2 weeks you will receive a link to purchase prints or you can purchase a DVD with ready to print images and you can then print to your heart's content.
Most clients end up saving several hundred dollars or more in printing costs over using a regular studio.
I will be more than happy to assist you in ordering your pictures if you are unsure of what to order or what you need.
I also have several printing options I can share and or design for you; such as books, collages, invitations, etc. We can discuss these options during your viewing session.
