super specific details
LOCATION and TIME: I shoot on location, using natural light. The possibilities are endless as to where to capture your session so think about places that have special meaning to you or a particular vibe you want and we will go for it! I generally schedule photo sessions 1-2 hours before sunset, for that magical, back-lit light, but I can work with your schedule and shoot at anytime of day.
PAYMENT: Payment is due at the end of your portrait session and can be paid by cash or check, made out to Raine Chism. If you prefer to pay via Paypal I will send you an invoice with an additional 2.9% Paypal fee. Prints and products you wish to purchase, after your session, can be ordered directly through your gallery.
IMAGE RETOUCHING: I hand edit each of your final images and put a lot of love and time into creating something artful. I only do basic retouching for small facial scars and blemishes. Requests for additional retouching will be at an additional cost.
PHOTOGRAPHIC RENDERING: While I capture hundreds of images during your session, you will only receive the very best ones. Each finished image is carefully rendered to ensure maximum artistry. Unflattering Images and duplicates are removed from my archives permanently.
PORTRAIT DELIVERY TIME: Your digital images are delivered up to 2 weeks after your session date, in a downloadable gallery. During peek season (October through December it can take up to 4-5 weeks to deliver your images). Once prints are ordered, delivery to your home is usually 3-6 business days. Canvases and Albums can take up to two weeks.
CARING FOR YOUR DIGITAL IMAGES: Your high resolution digital images will be held in a PIXIESET gallery for 60 days. Galleries are deleted after 60 days so please do not forget to download all of your images and then back them up. Unless it is a wedding, I only keep client images in my archives for 90 days, which makes it incredibly important that you download and back up your images immediately.
PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE: Prices are guaranteed for a period of 30 days following the date of the portrait session. Items purchased more than 30 days after the date of the session will be priced according to the most recent price guide.
