Portrait Sessions

Clicking the portrait links below will take you to the Google Drive Portrait Album for that session.  In the Top Right-Hand Corner of the photo album you will see a text link, "Download all" if you would like to download all the images.  You may also just click and download any individual image(s) you would like.  Online Portrait Albums posted here are available up to 30 days after portrait session.  In the session name below, if you see a number in parenthesis, (1), (2), etc., that means that is another portrait session that was shot for the same customer on that same day. 






NOTICE:  If you are waiting for more portraits to show up in your online Portrait Album, when you go to your Portrait Album again, you may need to Refresh or Reload the page for any updates to resolve in your browser.


We do NOT guarantee photo enhancements, retouch, printing, manipulation or inferior services of other photo labs which you may take to have digital portraits provided by us to be printed by other photo labs.

Carefully inspect any and all enhancements, retouch, creative applications BEFORE you have printed by our photo lab or by any other photo lab.  Especially for enlargement.  For example, retouch that may not be visible in a small print, may become visible in a larger print. 

When you choose our in-house photo lab for printing - we make further corrections to the digital portrait before we print . . .  and at no additional charge.  We are a CUSTOM digital lab.  This means you WILL receive better quality and faster service from us than probably any other lab anywhere in the United States!  We usually deliver print orders by the next business day to the studio!

Top Class Portraits™ sessions are archived here for up to 30 days after portrait session.  Here your family and friends may come to view and download their favorite full resolution printable JPEGs from your portrait session(s).   Top Class Portraits sessions are labeled by date of the portrait session followed by last name.  Click the portrait date/last name above to view that Top Class Portraits session album on Google Drive.  If you have viewed and downloaded all your portraits and would like your online portrait album removed, just use Contact Form to request removal of your link on this page. 

While I do require written permission to use any and all photographs I create for public display, etc., your portrait session does NOT have to be posted here for sharing with family and friends.  This service is offered as a convenience for my portrait customers.  If you prefer, I can simply email you a link to your Google Drive Portrait Album.  You may then share this link with who you choose.

All images I create for my portrait customers include "basic" photo retouching.  What's this?  I define it as any photo shop retouching I have the skills and ability to do within 60 seconds per image.  Doesn't matter how complex or sophisticated some may consider the photo shop technique employed, as long as I can do it for you within 60 seconds - your image will get it as I deem necessary and at no extra charge to you. 

There are different feelings about portrait retouching.  Some people don't think they look like themselves after retouching and so there is some level of disappointment in their portraits.  But just keep this in mind.  You are NOT any blood shot eyes, skin acne, bags under eyes, shaving cut and any other skin and skin color issues.  So I do basic retouch to correct those by default - unless you instruct me not to provide portrait retouching.

Deluxe Portrait Session images receive additional retouching as deemed necessary by retouch artist.  Ask about any special retouching you would like done to see if it is included in your session.  Please ask BEFORE session so photographer may minimize retouching by shooting in different ways to avoid what you would otherwise like to have retouched.  Photo retouching in Deluxe Portrait Session is any photo shop retouching the retouch artist has the skills and ability to do within 2 minutes per image.

The Best Color Palettes for Family Portraiture
