Professional Photo Retouching Did you Edit my photos? I tell all my clients that they will receive their finished images within one week after our session. But to be honest, I typically run a 24-48 hour turn around. With an average of 10-14 sessions per week, I would get sooooo backed up, and even knowing I have ONE session to edit, stresses me out!...

Family Portrait Posing Tips Image 1: This pose is great for kids.  It keeps them still, close and they are usually laughing that you are standing over them. I make jokes about falling on them or them being able to see boogers in my nose, whatever it takes!  This is also a great way to get the “catchlights” in your subject’s eyes. Image 2: According...
