Why does portrait photography cost so much?

I just thought I would share this with you all, so that you may have a better understanding as to why a personal portrait photographer, charges more than your big box stores, for your images.

Personally, I think customer service is key. I like to take the images, edit them to my satisfaction, and then provide you with portraits that you are going to be happy with, and pleased that you purchased. There is much more, that goes into a shoot, than just clicking the shutter on the camera, and then uploading to the internet to view.

Take a read through, and if you have any questions, or would like to leave a comment, I'd be happy to answer for you. Happy reading!

Oh and by the way, the author is an "online friend" from a photography forum I frequent, so check out his site at the very bottom of the article

Is Winter going to hang around for long?

As it is in the Northeast, we have too long of a winter anyway, but when it starts before Halloween, well, there is just something wrong with that scenario! While right here in the village, there isn't much, in the outlying areas, and even up North, 6 inches is just the beginning!

Ugh! I want it to all go away! Where are those warm days again, and the pretty leaves?

The start of the Christmas season

Today's shoot started the Christmas season for me. Britt brought her brother and sister for a family shoot, so they would have portraits for the holidays, for their parents. I thought that was a neat idea, that she was thinking ahead like that, and to consider something long lasting, and so meaningful.

Anyway, we had a really good time, shot a lot of frames, because they were all so good looking and hamming it up. And the little outfits for her dog, was incredible too! Her aunt made them up so she would be festive for her pictures, and the holidays.....too CUTE!

Our beautiful kitten

This is Marley, and she is a trip! She is quite mischevious, to say the least, and she is also not afraid of studio lights. This happened to be a spur of the moment catch, since she jumped up on a chair that was off to the side, as a prop.

She's our purty kitty!
