Frequently Asked Questions
Why people come to me?
People come to me to have an experience of self-value, confidence, and legacy in a portrait session that makes them feel and look like they belong on a cover of a magazine. Think like a spa, only that you will be investing in YOU, to experience a one of a kind photo shoot that will result in beautiful portraits that you will keep forever.
What most people get from their session?
Most people want all pictures (25) printed on a custom leather box collection, hand made in Italy by an artisan, with their favorite image printed on leather on the cover of the box. They also come to me to have large framed wall art, or Italian Fine Art Canvas Collections to decorate their homes with images from their portrait session.
What kind of Collections do you offer?
I have Print Collections and Italian Fine Art Canvas Collections. Currently, there are 3 print collections: Collection 1 with 10 prints, Collection 2 with 15 prints, and Collection 3 with 25 prints. Fine Art Collections are completely custom in sizes and number of pieces. Please inquire so I can create them for you.
How long is a regular portrait session?
Be prepared to spend about 4 hours in our studio, enough time for being pampered with light refreshments, makeup and hair styling and a fun and creative photo shoot with images that will be a legacy in your family’s history
Can I bring someone else to be photographed with me?
Absolutely yes! Your portrait session includes makeup and hair styling for you, but includes up to 4 people + you in your photo shoot. If you would like a session with more people, we can add the fee per extra person and the fee for the makeup artist and stylist and make it a full day photo shoot!
Can I buy a la carte images?
A la carte images can only be purchased AFTER the purchase of a Collection. Our business focuses on creating a custom luxury experience that is only complete after the acquisition of our collections. We believe in the tactile and tangible product.
Can I get the digital files?
You are buying the digital files when you buy the collections, but I want you to have something tangible so you always remember this experience. All purchased collections come with the printed and digital files of the acquired portraits.
Can I get only the digital files?
Yes you can, but the investment is the same. My business model focus on delivering great quality time, great service and great product, so you have something beautiful and tangible to enjoy for a lifetime. In each portrait session the portraits are taken, retouched and printed, so you might as well take them home with the digital files.
How much is your portrait session fee?
Our portrait session starts at $ 275, a session fee that includes makeup and hair styling for one person, but includes up to 4 people + you in your photo shoot. Please add $50 per extra person for the session fee + $150 per extra person for makeup and hair styling. Make up and hair styling is required to each adult/teenager over 16 so we can have an outstanding starting point for lighting and post processing after your session.
How much should I expect to invest in the reveal and purchasing session?
Our Collections start at $ 1800. Typically, my clients get all their images, on the leather box made in Italy, with their favorite image printed on leather on the cover of the box, an investment of $ 3500. What you spend in collections and wall art is entirely up to you. My job is to create the best photographs of you so you want them all.
How far out do you book portrait sessions?
Usually, 2 to 4 weeks out.
Do you take credit cards?
Yes. In your reveal and purchasing session, when you see all your 25 images, you place your order and pay in full. I use PAYPAL for my invoices and you can choose between using your regular one time full charge for your order OR apply for PAYPAL CREDIT, to pay it off in 6 months with zero interest. All is done in two minutes at the studio.
