Keeping the focus is on your beautiful family!


  • Pick your favorites that you'll be printing large and displaying prominantly and I'll give it my best!
  • If the retouch requests are time intensive or beyond my skill level, I'll provide a quote for the additional services.
Simple retouch

I can usually retouch the simple stuff.  If you need retouch on the entire session, I may need to contract that out.

  • Acne
  • A stray hair or two
  • Hair elastic on a wrist
  • Bruise or kids' owies depending on their location
  • Seaweed or distracting rocks/shells in the sand
  • Sprinklers or pipes in the background
  • Distracting tire tracks
  • Make an image black and white
  • Color/contrast adjustment

More advanced and time intensive retouch

If it works with the pose/background and I'm able to make it look good, I can retouch a few.  Otherwise I may need to contract it out.

  • Simple tucking in here and there
  • Head swaps (same pose, position and lighting)
  • Thin hair/bald spots
  • Bra straps and underclothing peeking out
  • Cell phones/keys/sunglasses in pockets (front or back)
  • Decrease the shadows/wrinkles on face/neck a bit
  • Slim an upper arm or other body part

Tricky stuff

Additional fees will most likely apply. These will probably be contracted out.

  • Many stray hairs or stray hairs across eyes
  • Hair roots/hair color adjustments
  • Sunburn and tan lines
  • Braces or colorful orthodonic apparatus
  • Clothing wrinkles
  • Double chins
  • Lots of tucking in
  • Beard stubble
  • Eye glass reflections (if you can pop your lenses out for our session that would be best!)
  • Adjust spacing in a group
