Amazing images are not done in a single 20 minute sit down and shoot.
Anyone that says that they can get a great shot in 20 to 30 shots
is willing to settle for a lot less than amazing.
If you want a good shot go to your local studio.
They will get the lighting right and usually the makeup and hair as well.
If you want amazing prepare to spend an entire day shooting.
Makeup, hair and wardrobe are critical.
Expressions are fleeting and take time to capture.
My rate for a day is $2500. includes makeup, hair and wardrobe styling,
and if your not happy you don't pay.
