Basic & Enhanced Edits/Processing

I love the Processing/Editing aspect of Photography almost as much as I love creating the images during your session. The artistry of bringing life back into an image as I envisioned it, is an essential part of my Editing workflow.

Basic Edit - To see what is included in a Basic Edited photo, see below.  

Each picture presented to you in your album is reviewed inch by inch and Edited by hand. Editing images is time-consuming and can take up to 5-10 minutes per image for a Basic Edit. 

I will do a Basic Edit on all photos presented to you in your Password protected Album and will gift you at least One Enhanced Edited photo ALL at NO additional charge.  Note: all Edits/Processed images are chosen by Photographer, I will choose the best images from your session.   Prices below are for additional Edits/Processing requested from the Client.

Enhanced EditsTo see what is included in an Enhanced Edited photo, see below.  

Enhanced Edits require a lot of dedicated time and patience to create, each Enhanced image can take up to 30-90 minutes to edit depending on what is being done to it; background removal and composites take the longest. Please be extra patient when requesting additional Enhanced edits:)

Estimated editing/processing time is based on per image, and depends on the complexity of the desired edit.   

The Photographer has the ability to deny an Enhanced Edit request at any time if requested edits are too complex, unrealistic or beyond the photographer's abilities. Please let your Photographer know of anything you want to be removed (such a birthmark or a mole) before the session begins.

Please note:

• Certain edits are not possible with every image.  Although Professional Photo Editing software can create magic in a photo, it’s also limited to the type of Software and the photographers abilities to manipulate that software. 

Please discuss with your photographer during your session if required edits are needed that can be fixed during your session rather than after.  It's better to fix during the session, rather than time consuming and pricey edits afterwards.

• Certain Enhanced Edits can take up to 8-10 days/photo, depending on the complexity of the requested Edit.

Edits that will not be done:

• Recreate missing body parts, clothing or objects etc.  (example: recreate a hand that is hidden behind something, or create objects not shown in any of the photos during your session)  

Body manipulation:  remove 20+ pounds, "fix" facial expressions.

Outsourced Enhanced Pro Edits: minimum of $50.00/photo.  I can outsource complex time-consuming edits that are beyond my editing ability to a Professional Photo Editor at a minimum of $50/image at the client's expense.  Please inform me ASAP if this is an option you wish to do with a specific image.
