With most photoshoots, I will include Basic Edits with all of your images. This means, I do my very best to get the shot as good as possible in camera with lighting, styling, and posing. With my first rounds of edits, I use Lightroom to make selections for keepers and sort out the outtakes including test shots, underexposed, overexposed, duplicates, and blurry images. Then, all of the images are adjusted together for exposure, color, adjustments to shadows, highlights, sharpness and cropping. After these first round of edits your images will be cohesive and look pretty darn good!

The second kind of edit is Advanced Retouching and includes Photoshop magic for things like skin smoothing, teeth whitening, body contouring, removal of items, compositing, etc. All Advanced Edits edits are complimentary with print orders 5x7" and larger or a la carte at $60/ hour. If you have an edit that requires extensive digital work please contact me for an estimate.
