Despite being one of the most time-consuming aspects of a photographers job, I love retouching and editing images. I make your pictures look how I envisioned them for you. During your session, you would have been posing in the light and angle that flatters and enhances your face and body, and then in post-processing, I ensure that all that work was worthwhile by adding that touch of special magic to your images. After your session, I would have downloaded your RAW files and created a backup version for you. These images are culled, leaving only the best portraits and ones deemed suitable for the retouching aspect of my work.


It can take 20-30 minutes to retouch a single image, depending on the desired result. Some photos may require more attention, like blotchy and flaky newborn skin, 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, rashes, or scratches. Permanent scars, wrinkles and birthmarks can be reduced, and I do this with love and a light hand. Often these are characteristics 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!
Here are some beautiful examples of my edits.
