A little about Me...
*I charge a flat rate of $50/hr, (one hour minimum and then by the half hour after that) for photo sessions (paid at time of session). Once the session is done photos are lightly edited and posted on a private password protected online gallery. Clients will have time to go through each photograph and decide which ones they would like printed. Those photographs will go through further editing if needed before printing (prints are paid for before picking up). Photos chosen for print can also be resized to a small resolution for social medias and put on a USB stick (price is by photo, you can provide USB or I can for the cost of the USB stick).
*I love to get together with my clients before the shoot to discuss what they are looking for as everyone has a different style. I photograph people, real estate, architecture, interiors, sports associations and tournaments, farms & ranches, business/commercial photography...and anything else you can think of.
*In 2004 I started my company Art Of All Trades. I painted windows for Holidays, I drew and painted on canvases and murals on walls. In 2007 I won some money in a radio contest and bought my first camera and we were gifted our first computer. I was raising five kids at the time and found photography and computer art so much easier to clean up quickly lol so I took a photography course and taught myself Photoshop.
*I started out photographing sports, as those five kids were the sporty kind, so unlike their artsy parent lol. For years I learned about sports photography and Photoshop. Now those kids have all grown up and moved on, and I focused on barrel racing and rodeos, as I have always loved horses. As I get older, I realize I want to do something different, something more creative with light and camera so I've started investing in portable strobe lights and a studio space.
*I have a relaxed style when photographing, I do not ask people to do anything they find awkward or unnatural, I prefer my clients and their families to interact with each other naturally, and be as comfortable as possible. I do not have a time limit, especially when it comes to newborns and children, they go at their own pace, sometimes it can take a quick 30 minutes, sometimes its two hours.
*You do not have a long wait for your prints as I have a professional Canon Pro 1000 printer, it has 12 ink tanks for amazing color and black and white photographs. I use professional photo paper in your choice of Luster, Glossy or Semi-Gloss and can print as small as 1" x 1" or as large as 17" x 22". If you are in a big rush I can photograph and print within 24 hours.
