RETOUCHING YOUR IMAGES
Despite being one of the most time-consuming aspects of a photographers job I actually love retouching and editing images. This is how I make your images look how I envisioned them for you. During your session, you would have been posed so that the light and angle flatters and enhances your face and body, then In post-processing, I ensure that all that work was worthwhile by adding that touch of individual magic to your images. After your session, I would have downloaded your RAW files and created a backup version for you. These images will then be culled, leaving only the very best portraits and ones deemed suitable for the retouching aspect of my work.
It can take from 10-60 minutes to retouch a single image depending on the desired result. Some images may require more attention than others like a blotchy and flaky skin on newborns, under eye circles on exhausted new parents and background edits removing distractions and creases in clothes or blankets. When retouching, I consider any requests you may have. I love to see the texture and natural beauty in my portraits, and I don’t like people to be overly edited or look unreal. I will always remove temporary issues like spots, a little rash or scratch. Permanent scars can be softened, the same with wrinkles and birthmarks. This is done with love and a light hand. Often these are characteristics that are loved by your family and individual to you!
I use these skills to give my images that professional and personal touch that comes with over 20 years of experience.
So don't worry about the small things, I have your back and will help you look your best self!
Here are some beautiful examples of my edits.
