Thanks for the comments. Here are two more of my favorites from the session. I always try and give more than what is expected. He told me before we started that he hated having his
portrait taken, I assured him I wasn't looking for a chessey smile.
When we were done he was quite pleased with the experience he had in my studio.
My only reason for mentioning my Reservation Fee is not to brag but hopefully to help someone along that is involved in portraiture. To many of the new folks in this industry are leaving way to
much money on the table. Here is a good example: A pretty darn good photographer in my area sells sessions @ $275 w/ 25 edited images on a CD, well that equals to $11 an image. This business model
is not very sustainable and I haven't seen many photographers out there that last very long. We as portrait photographers sell emotion, not images on a CD or pieces of paper. We should all value
ourselves, the time and talent we have and always consider the cost of doing business, plus lets not forget we need to make a profit at the end.
Today is the Day, a New Day.
