Eventually We Must Get Down to Business
Life can't be all fun and games. Services must be discussed. Deals must be made. My rates for wedding, fashion and corporate photography vary depending on the size and scope of the job. Feel free to contact me for details. If you're interested in headshots, dance photography and comp cards, everything is explained below.
- Package 1 - Headshots: $975 (Students - $825) - (Make-up is separate - see below)
- Your shoot includes a minimum of 500 digital color images in at least four locations (inside and outside), and several clothing changes. Hair and makeup is an additional charge. I'm a variety junkie, so you can count on a wide range of looks. See the FAQs for information about natural light, weather concerns, and other details of my shooting process.
- You will have access to the images approximately two to three weeks after the shoot. I will select 300-400 of the best shots and post them online with Reproductions. You will be able to email them to friends and agents, post them on Facebook, and order a hi-resolution DVD from Reproductions for $30. See After Your Shoot for more specifics.
- Package 2 - Comp Card/Headshots
- 3 looks + headshots: $1500 (makeup required: women $325/ men $250)
- 4 looks + headshots: $1650 (makeup required: women $375/ men $300) *most popular package
- 5 looks + headshots: $1800 (makeup required: women $425/ men $350)
- During your headshot session I’ll take additional photographs for a composite card (3-5 looks). This package includes a full headshot session (minimum 500 images) and 3-5 different looks for the back of the comp card. Click here to see everything you ever needed to know about comp cards but were afraid to ask.
- A comp card is used by actors, models, dancers and musicians for commercial print auditions and self-promotion. A comp card is not just for models (see samples). A comp card is an important resource in addition to a headshot. It allows you to introduce yourself to industry professionals in a much more diverse way than with a headshot alone. Please indicate this package when booking a session so I can allow for extra time to shoot.
- If you're more comfortable in your own space, I am available to shoot your comp card in your home and neighborhood. Here are three examples of location shoots (Sample 1 / Sample 2 / Sample 3). Additional rates usually apply. Inquire for specifics.
- Package 3 - Dancer Photographs: $1100
- This package includes a full headshot session (minimum 500 photos), plus body shots and dance shots. Makeup is required (for women $250 and men $175). The dance and body shots will be used to emphasize your strength, flexibility, athleticism and artistry; they are essential for online and print promotion. Click here for examples.
- Favorites Selection: $125 for Package 1 (Headshots)/ $175 for Packages 2 and 3 (Comp Cards and Dance)
- I will select my favorite images from your session and upload them to your own private page on my website. The layout will be very similar to a Facebook gallery. Each image will have a comments section, "like this", "share this", etc. You can email the link to personal and professional contacts, and keep track of their comments. And you can enlarge each image for easy viewing. Click here for a sample gallery.
- Rush Delivery: $100 for Package 1 (Headshots)/ $150 for Packages 2 and 3 (Comp Cards and Dance)
- For an additional $100 you'll receive your headshots within 48 hours. Otherwise, they will be available in around two weeks.
Discounts (Only certain discounts can be combined. Inquire for details)

Greensavers - Save: $50
Help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels by converting your home to Green Power with Con Edison. It's quick, easy and inexpensive. By purchasing Green Power, you support the development of more facilities that generate electricity from renewable resources. Bring your electric bill or receipt and I will take $50 off your shoot.
Hair and Make-up
- Headshots- $225 for women / $150 for men Cash is required, which is paid directly to your stylist. I have three of the best make-up artists in the business- I say this without hesitation! They have years of experience and are wonderful with subtle, natural light make-up (and fantastic with hair)! Best of all, they stay for the entire session for touch-ups and hair styling. They're extremely fun to be around and will keep you feeling relaxed and beautiful. Plus, they're collaborative partners during the shoot. Whichever artist you work with, you'll be extremely satisfied with the experience.
- A $300 non-refundable deposit is required when booking a session. At least 48 hours advance notice is required for rescheduling. Please send a check to-
