Retouching is basically polishing up a photo image. Basic retouching includes removing blemishes, softening the skin, whitening teeth, adjusting color, brightness, etc.

Can I use the images for anything I want?

Images are granted use for personal or portfolio use only. Contact me if you would like to use the photos for any type of commercial venture so we can work out commercial and royalty fees.

In light of COVID, what precautions do you take to ensure a safe shoot?

This pandemic requires new approaches to safely shoot but it does not have to limit results.
Go to "CONTACT" page to see the full list of precautions.

How do I book a session?

Go to CONTACT section of the website, fill out the form, and leave a message describing what you would like to do and when you would like to shoot. I will follow up with call to discuss detailed pricing, availability and answer any questions you may have. I will then send you a contract and invoice (with non-refundable booking fee).
To confirm your booking, you must send the 50% non-refundable booking fee of the full package. The balance is due the day of the shoot.

What should I do to prepare for a shoot?

Drink plenty of water the day before a shoot.
Get a good nights sleep.
Prepare your attire. Keep it simple. Coordinate colors for groups of 2 or more. Solid colors are best.
Arrive "camera ready" if not using a make up artist. This means to apply makeup, do your hair before arriving.
Be sure to arrive promptly.

Do you give any discounts?

Yes. I offer discounted rates for returning clients and clients that come from referrals.

What form of payments do you accept?

I currently accept venmo, Cash$ app or PayPal.

What happens if I am running late or need to cancel a session?

If you are running late, please contact me as soon as you can. I will try my best to get everything you need in the time remaining but it is not possible to extend the session time due to other bookings following your session.
If you need to cancel, contact me as soon as you can so I can plan accordingly. However it is not possible to return your booking fee. This covers any lost bookings and costs already arisen before the actual session.
However, I understand that life happens, so an alternative would be to reschedule the session for a new date.

Do you have insurance?

Yes. ARC Photography maintains a general liability and property coverage policy.
