HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR PICTURES AFTER THE SESSION?

Photos are delivered by mail ten (10) days after the shoot, or after the retouching selection is made (if any).

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EDITED AND RETOUCHED PHOTOGRAPHS?

Edited photographs are processed through Lightroom, which is the digital equivalent of a physical Darkroom. White-Balance, cropping, dust removal, lighting and other adjustments are made.

Retouched photographs are processed through Photoshop and include skin retouching, removal of distracting elements, and other lighting adjustments.

 

WHERE AND WHAT TIME OF DAY DO WE SHOOT?

With the exception of newborns photo shoots, all appointments take place on location.  I know of several ideal locations in the Los Angeles area to suggest for your shoot, however we can also shoot at the location of your choice if you already have something in mind - I always enjoy shooting somewhere new. On-location sessions are scheduled at sunrise or a few hours before sunset. If were shooting in your home, times are more flexible and are discussed during the booking process.

 

WE WANT TO BOOK.  NOW WHAT?

You can email me at aureliadumont@gmail.com.  Send the details of what you are interested in, your contact information and when you would like to shoot.  Once we book our session date, I will prepare an invoice and we can discuss all the upcoming details.

 

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

I accept all major credit/debit cards, as well as personal checks and U.S. currency.
