Engagement Portrait Sitting Options
Creating your portrait involves craftsmanship and knowledge as well as time and materials. The sitting fee is based on the number of images from which you will have to select your favorite poses. You may decide which sitting best suits your needs. However, remember that the more images taken the greater the variety from which you will choose your favorites. A session is good for only one group of people.

Glasses can pose a great problem for portrait photographers. Sometimes we can not use the best lighting techniques because distortion and glare will not allow it. We highly recommend that you obtain a pair of matching empty frames from your eye care specialist in order to avoid problems. It's a pain, but well worth the effort.
