Portraits

Portraits can be done on location or in studio at Simply Bliss Studio, located at 108 S. 3rd Street, Smithfield. The studio is great for: newborns, children, cake smashes, head-shots, and boudoir or women's portraiture. 

Even though I own a studio, I absolutely love photographing on-location outdoors. If you choose to go this route, portrait sessions of 60 minutes or more generally take place from 20-30 miles from the studio location. Locations outside of that range may include a nominal fee. Generally, the areas I travel to/from include (not limited to): Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Holly Springs, Fuquay, Garner, Benson, Four Oaks, Smithfield, Coats, Erwin, and Dunn. Also, I am frequently at Topsail Island (Pender/ Onslow Counties) at all times of the year. If you may be interested in a beach session at or near Surf City, please contact me and we can set a date.

All portrait packages include photographer time and talent, which include: scouting locations, travel, shooting time, light editing and enhancements. All sessions require a non refundable deposit to reserve your session date and time. This payment will go toward the cost of your session and the remaining balance is due the day of your session. If you fail to show to your session at the scheduled time or do not give at least a 24 hour notice, the deposit is forfeited and therefore nonrefundable. If 24 hours, or more notice is given, you will have the deposit amount as studio credit to book at another time. 

Custom photography tends to have a longer turnaround time than an in-and-out, high-volume studio. Careful attention to detail and color are given to your images. General turn around times may vary, but is generally between 1-2 weeks for your proofs to be ready for proof presentation. And an additional 1-3 weeks for product orders to be purchased, received, and delivered. The whole process can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks from booking to receiving your finished product. Payment plans are flexible and available if needed. 

All orders and sessions are subject to a 7% North Carolina sales tax. Most clients spend on average $300 - $1500 on their session and product orders.

Every session is unique, but you can expect that I will give you my undivided attention during our time together. I have a lot of patience and will do whatever it takes to get the perfect shot. My ultimate goal is to have everyone involved to be comfortable and have a great experience and that will yield wonderful images.
