Photography Rates and Services

WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOU?

There are four simple reasons why you should hire me as your photographer

  • I AM a portrait, headshot, and event photographer currently based around Boston, Massachusetts.
  • I SPECIALIZE in traveling to you in order to produce images for portraits and headshots; boudoir photography; rave, festival, concert, nightlife, and other event coverage; model portfolio and branding; social media; and newspaper/media.
  • I EDIT photos one at a time, and not through the same presets that everyone else uses to create images via an assembly line. Your images deserve much more personalized attention and, frankly, my rates reflect that!
  • I PROMISE that your images will be unique, individually edited, and delivered as quickly as possible.

WHAT ARE YOUR RATES and SERVICES?

Portrait Photography Rates for Individuals

Prices start at:

  • Headshots – $300
  • Portraits and Boudoir – $600

Prices include up to 100 miles of travel and two of your favorite images.

I work on-location, which means I come to you, wherever we agree. This helps to keep my rates lower since I do not have the overhead of a studio and allows us to pick suitable locations that are comfortable, familiar, or better tied to your brand. It’s strongly recommended that you are ready to go for your session with your hair and makeup done and be prepared with a couple of wardrobe changes for different looks. It’s better to be over-prepared than under-prepared. Sessions last as long as they need to, but you can expect an average of about 2-3 hours.

We’ll review images together during our shoot because it is important to involve you in the creative process as much as possible. At the end of the shoot, we’ll have a final review and you may select your two favorite images, for free, at that time. You may also purchase additional images at $75 each.

All images you select will include light retouching on top of normal contrast and color corrections, and generous licensing for personal use to print images at your own lab of choice or post them on your social media.

I highly recommend getting prints done at your favorite lab, but if you prefer to purchase prints from me (and many thanks if you do!) my pricing ranges from about $800 for a 30×40 metal print with a white base and float mount to about $5.00 for 4 wallet sized prints and they are ordered online.

Some Things To Keep In Mind

Headshot photography

I will be photographing above-the-chest and, unless otherwise requested, will use a simple white or black background with neutral lighting — perfect for social media, dating websites, professional profiles, personal branding, or your business website!

Portrait photography

We can get as creative with lighting, wardrobe, and location as you like and outdoor street portrait sessions are always a fun option. This is where hard-light, strong shadows, and bold color can really drive visual impact.

Boudoir photography

This session is all about you and your comfort. It is not a nude photography session, unless you wish it to be, nor is it a sexually explicit portrait session. It is, instead, a sensual portrait photography session where we explore and tease via shape, posing, light, shadow, color, texture, and expression. You revel in what you reveal, and in that process you find your power!

Fire performer and flow artist photography

Photographing flow artists and fire performers is my specialty. Use of fire adds a minimum of $100 due to the increased risk, danger, and additional resources needed. It’s strongly recommended that you please contact me directly in order to discuss important safety details about the shoot.

DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?

Yes. I am based around Boston, Massachusetts.

  • Less than 100 miles of travel – Travel is already included
  • More than 100 miles of travel – $100 per hour of travel

I have partnered with photography clients in CT, ME, NH, NJ, NY, OH, and RI. For the right projects, I can travel farther if needed.

Although I am located in the city of Boston, I do travel. A lot. Sometimes for fun. Travel fees are, therefore, always based on my point of origin. I may happen to be closer to you than Boston, on the day of photography, and it’s best to send me a message with your location and requested date and time so I can coordinate my travels, as necessary, to save you some money.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A PHOTO SHOOT?

Scheduling a photo shoot is pretty straight forward.

First step is to send me a message or find me on social media. You can do both from my contact page.

  • We begin by brainstorming ideas together.
  • After going over details of your shoot, and only if we both feel comfortable moving forward, I will send you a contract outlining what we discussed.
  • To schedule and confirm the time and date(s) for your shoot, and to legally bind the contract, a non-refundable initial payment is required.
  • The initial payment is equal to approximately 50% of the estimated budget and it will be applied to your final invoice.

No vendors or assistants will be confirmed, no dates will be scheduled, and neither of us is obligated to the other until an initial payment is made and a contract is signed. Your time is valuable. So is mine.

Rest assured, I’m here to help you feel comfortable and excited about our shoot. Reach out to me at any time with any ideas you may already have in mind. Putting together a Pinterest pin-board is a wonderful way to brainstorm ideas! If you don’t have anything concrete in mind, that is okay, too.

Fully informed consent and setting expectations early on is my priority. The time it takes to work out an understanding of what is expected from both sides, the scope of your photo shoot, and to give a reasonably accurate estimate of rates, travel, and any other potential costs prior to any formal agreement by contract may seem daunting; however, I promise that it’s always worth the effort.

WHAT ARE SOME OTHER COSTS I SHOULD CONSIDER?

Every photography project has different needs.

Depending on the complexity of your photo shoot, any of the following may apply (which will be discussed ahead of time and agreed to in the contract):

  • Licensing and Usage (Including full rights buy-out)
  • Location / Permit / Legal / Insurance Fees
  • Flight / Train / Bus tickets
  • Photographic Prints
  • Equipment Rentals
  • Commercial Use
  • Post Production
  • Media Delivery
  • Administrative
  • Creative Fees
  • Assistant(s)
  • Wardrobe
  • Make up
  • Hair

Etc, etc, etc…

Currently, I accept the following forms of payment:

  • Cash
  • Debit Card
  • Credit Card

An installment plan could be arranged on a case by case basis.
