Overview

Hello, I'm Carolyn McLean. I%u2019ve been a photographer since 2007 after joining my high school%u2019s yearbook staff and also being hired into a photography studio as an assistant wedding photographer. Since then I formed a photography club at school where I entered some of my work into local and statewide competitions earning best of show for the Saline Community Fair, and other acknowledgements including a photo published into a Michigan travel magazine.

Service Description

Services and Pricing
Typically, I spend one to three hours on a photo shoot depending on weather, location, size of a job, and client availability. Because of the wide time range that a shoot may take, I am flexible with my pricing. I usually charge $100 per private portrait session. Prices for weddings and portrait sessions for schools or businesses will be determined based on the number of people being photographed and the demand for the photographer. For locations more than 20 miles from area code 48108 (May to August) and 48824 (September through April) a $20 travel fee is installed.

Retouching and Editing
I am skilled in photo retouching and editing and will retouch selected photos from the shoot for a dollar a photo. I can erase acne and blemishes, correct shallow wrinkles, fix messy hair, whiten teeth, remove braces, and more. For senior photos, many clients like their name to appear in the lower right of their wallets. Naming will be included in the editing pricing.

What to Wear:
Portraits should portray the essence of you! Wear what makes you feel attractive! I usually recommend avoiding trends, because one day the trend will be no more. Solid color tops look best in photographs. If you want to wear a pattern, I recommend subtle patterns. Wild prints, small stripes, and tiny polka dots can be distracting in a photo.
Be sure your clothes are wrinkle and lint free, as it is noticeable in photos.
Coordinating all of the people being photographed is encouraged....
