A question I get asked regularly is "why does photo retouching cost more?" To answer this question I'll reveal the top two reasons why. Here it is:
1. It's a very time-consuming and detail-oriented process. I can sometimes spend up to three hours retouching just one photo. This isn't because someone has an unfortunate face. It's because the highly detailed process of photo retouching requires a lot of time. When I go over your image with a fine tooth comb I could end-up making nearly 30 edits to the image. For example, I adjust the contrast, deepen the richness of color, fix backgrounds, define facial features, brighten eyes, remove stray hairs, smooth skin, reshape hairdos, arch eyebrows, thin-out waists, shape arms, even out legs and much more.
2. It's an improvement on the original image. If I were a tailor and told you there would be an additional cost for me to take-in the waist and hem your pants, in addition to just repairing a torn pocket, you likely wouldn't argue with me. You would understand that I 'd be making a custom-fit alteration to the original pair of pants that betters your experience when wearing the pants. The same idea applies to photo retouching. When I retouch your photos I am improving upon the final presentation of your image to give you a boost to put your best look forward to all who see it.
I hope this provides a bit of insight! Now, check out the photo below. What differences do you notice? After seeing this, would you pay for photo retouching?... Let me know in the comments!
Walk into the light! That's the big secret. When you want to take a great selfie make sure you are facing a light source. A sunny window, nearby lamp, brightly lit space or flashlight from another camera phone (did I just say "camera phone" lol) will do the trick. Hope this helps you be the fiercest #selfiequeen ever!
I love bringing sexy back one baby bump at a time! Maternity photo sessions are so special to me because I get to help women feel beautiful during a sacred time in their life. To hear women say things like "I didn't know I could look like that" or "I look sexy" is touching, and what I work so hard for. If you're a sexy mama, or want to feel like one, message me so we can chat about setting up a custom photo shoot just for you!
