Hey there, thanks for getting in touch!
Below is all the info you'll need about getting some new photos with me.
I am currently based in Los Angeles (Koreatown), but I travel back to Brooklyn (Bed Stuy) about once a month.
Portrait sessions are $850 which includes a few outfit changes and different studio setups (light with a white background, moody with dark background, etc.)
The shoots usually take about 2 hours (+1hr for hair/makeup).
If you come as a group of 2 people, the rate per person is $750, (or $700 each for 3 people).
Within 48 hours of the shoot you'll receive low-res proofs of all the images.
From these you choose your 3 favorites to get retouched and e-mailed to you high-res within a week!
(You get an extra retouched image for paying cash.)
Please note: Because post-production is a major part of the look of my work, I don't release un-retouched images, Additional retouches are $25 or $20/ea for 5 or more.
I hang on to your images forever, and your previews link will stay up, so you can come back later on and get more.
Bring a selection of your favorite outfits so we can choose what's best for each look. I prefer to work with warm, muted, earthy tones. If you'd like to do a more commercial shot on white, a pop of color is always nice. Solids and subtle patterns are usually best. Check out the images below to see how different styles read on camera. I shoot 2-4 different looks per session, but it'd be great if you brought 5-10. When packing, keep in mind that the images will mainly be from the waist up.
Hair and makeup are optional, if you feel more comfortable having it done by a professional, I have recommendations below.
For men, I usually don't recommend makeup unless it's something you use frequently, you're also welcome to shave during the session.

Payment is due the day of the shoot by cash, Chase Quickpay, Venmo, check or Paypal (listed in order of preference).
I don't require a deposit, but please give me as much notice as possible if you need to cancel.
