Session Information & Pricing

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Your portrait session is usually a brand new experience and it can be hard for you to know just what you would like or what to expect from your session with us here at F10 Studio.

We believe that your portraits should feel authentic. Whether you are celebrating a life milestone or looking to document family memories for future generations – we want to capture YOU, being YOU, or being the awesome family that you are.

From our first contact, we will guide you every step of the way. We are very particular and passionate about the photographs that we create for our clients as we’re all about making the sessions relaxing and stress-free. You can let us worry about making you look your very best so that you don’t have to!

Professional lighting, and proper posing guidance are just a few of the elements we will work with you on in the process of creating your portraits. We work with some incredible beauty experts (makeup artists, hair stylists, stylists, etc) who we can recommend if needed to make you feel your very best for your session, helping to create magazine-cover-worthy photographs!

THE PROCESS:
1. Timing is very important!

Ideally, we recommend that you schedule your portraits 1-2 weeks before you will need your edited images delivered for your birthday or special occasions.

2. The Session

We offer both in-studio and in-home sessions (in-home sessions attract a 150 surcharge as we would require to bring our mobile studio to you, which requires extensive setup time and tear-down time). Every session includes solo portraits, as well as photos with the family if desired!

3. The Delivery

All unedited photo proofs will be made available for viewing only via an online gallery shortly after the session where you can select your favorites for edits. It will then take about 3-7 days to edit and retouch your portraits and prepare the final presentation. Our magazine-quality digital editing will take care of any “imperfections”, resulting in gorgeous portraits to admire and cherish forever. Prints, canvas, frames, calendars, albums, and many more are extras and available for purchase through your online gallery upon delivery of final edited photos.

MAKEUP
On-site Make-up Artist One Look: $200 (Pricing covers one person only and this service must be booked in advance so we can have a service provider on site. If you only wish to have make-up for one look, they will perform the service at the beginning, and then as the photography begins they will leave. If you are doing multiple looks and would like them to be on set the whole time, then it’s best to book them for the time needed. Regardless of the length of your session, the initial make-up service will not count against your session time. Please contact us for a quote for shoots with multiple individuals. And finally, in the event a provider is not available, we will re-book the session.)

ADD-ON PRODUCTS

Prints, canvas, frames, calendars, albums, and many more are available at additional cost through your online gallery upon delivery of final edited photos

TERMS & FAQs

Payment: Cash, Credit Cards, and Paypal are accepted.

Deposit: A 50% non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking. After receipt of this fee, we will reserve the date and time agreed upon and will not make other reservations for that date and time. For this reason, this fee is non-refundable, even if the date is changed or the appointment is canceled for any reason. The deposit goes towards your final total and can be paid above on this page, over the phone with a credit card or via etransfer (our etransfer email address is admin@f10studio.ca). A higher deposit may be required if you’re shoot requires two or more of the following: hair, make-up and styling. The balance will be due at the studio at the end of the shoot.

Retouching: We specialize in natural retouching that makes you look like you. Well rested, healthy, put together, blemish-free, and maybe a few years younger but not lighter. We will do up to two rounds of retouching per image, but rarely is more than one round needed. If you request additional changes you will be charged $150/hr each additional round of retouching per image, dependent upon the complexity. We will do our best to make any changes you request, but there is a chance your requests may exceed what is possible for us. Most location shots are done at real locations and we do not deal in overly complex composite and/or heavily altered images. However, you are more than welcome to take the images we create to a company that specializes in that type of retouching.

What do you mean by Retouched images?

Images that have been color corrected with the contrast and brightness optimally adjusted to showcase the subject. Blemishes, stray hairs, and other distracting elements are removed to help you look your best. Retouching, like make-up, shouldn’t be heavy-handed, because no one wants to look unnatural in their photos. Retouching an image properly can take around 30 minutes to 1 hour and that’s why we limit the number of retouched images and charge extra for additional images.

Can I get all the unretouched images?

We do not deliver unedited images as they are not a true representation of our final work.

Prints

Prints are not included in any of our packages, however, we offer prints for an additional price – you will be able to order prints, frames and albums directly from your online gallery. Images will be cropped to accommodate the proportions of the print size.

What should I wear?

I think it’s best for people to bring looks that span a variety of styles but it’s important that you bring outfits that makes you feel like you!

Do you really need a make-up artist or hair stylist?

If it were me being photographed, I’d want my makeup and hair done by a professional. A lot of people think they can do their makeup themselves and that they don’t need a professional, but we all can look our best with the help of a professional. No one is blemish-free and proper makeup is the foundation for proper retouching. It really improves the final product because some challenges that makeup can fix can’t be properly addressed in Photoshop. Hairstyling may not be necessary, but it is highly recommended.
