Dallas Portrait Photography of a Modern Woman at Home

PORTRAITS

Portrait photography showcases the unique personalities, attitudes, and styles of a subject or collection of people. When you’re looking for a Dallas portrait photographer, you need someone who invests the time and energy into understanding your unique portrait needs in order to guide the process toward defining and realizing your vision. That’s why I welcome you to review my portfolio of professional portraits and reach out for a complimentary conversation about your unique photography needs.


Because portraits, both for professional or personal use, focus largely on the face, I take a constructionist approach to empowering emotional vulnerability that reads best on one’s face. While most portraits are planned down to the attire, positioning, and intended expressions of the subject, I believe in leaving room for candor in an attempt to most authentically capture and release a powerful portrait that tells your story.


I deliver only the finest professional portrait services to local businesses and individuals in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. From corporate portraits and commercial portraits for real estate, medical, and sporting needs, to family, editorial, or environmental portraits, there are many different types of professional portraits that I shoot with a friendly, flexible approach that keeps my clients happy year after year.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION




    DELIVERY

    At the final stage of editing and processing, you will receive an email containing a link and password to an online gallery. Online galleries never expire, so images that may be lost over time can easily be re-downloaded through the client portal.

    Printing is offered at reasonable prices; printed images can be delivered straight to your office.


    PAYMENT/CANCELLATIONS

    A 50% retainer is required to reserve a date and time. The remaining 50% is to be paid by the end of the session (day of the shoot). For individual sessions, a $50 deposit is required to book the date and time.

    Cancellation of the session forfeits the deposit; see below for rescheduling information. Credit cards are accepted and can be paid through my online client portal at www.danielmottaphotography.com.


    RESCHEDULING

    Sometimes, conflicts arise, and a need to reschedule arises. Your deposit is transferable due to reschedule with 7-days’ notice. The new session must take place within 30 days of the original shoot date; once 30 days have passed, the session will be considered cancelled.


    ON LOCATION/TRAVEL

    I am available for on-location shooting throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and throughout the United States. Rates are subject to change depending on location and do not include travel expenses for shoots outside local studio locations. Taxes and travel fees will be included with each quote, as necessary.


    RETOUCHING/PHOTO EDITING DEFINITIONS

    These two terms, photo editing and photo retouching, are often mistakenly used interchangeably buy they refer to different processes.

    The differences are as follows:


    PHOTO EDITING

    This involves adjustment like white balance, color, exposure, contrast and sharpening. If there is a minor skin blemish that is distracting, for instance, I will usually remove it.


    BASIC PHOTO RETOUCHING

    This process is more involved than simple editing, and therefore, can take longer amounts of time. In addition to the color and balancing depicted above, retouching includes softening and blending of the face and neck; blemish removal; teeth whitening; brightening and red eye-removal; and hair taming around edges. The end result is a polished, professional image that will be flawless, while still looking completely natural.


    HIGH-END PHOTO RETOUCHING

    This goes beyond the initial scope of basic retouching and includes things like, swapping heads and body parts, complicated hair adjustments, removing unwanted objects, smoothing clothes, changing background colors, changing clothing colors, changing the shape of face and body parts, and color grading. High End Retouching Pricing starts at $55 per hour and time can vary depending on the size and scope of retouching wanted.
