Portrait Photography 

What sets Artifex Imaging apart?

Session prices can be customized according to budget

The packages below include a specific number of images from your shoot fully edited. We can easily tailor these packages to your budget by reducing the number of images provided to you after the shoot. You can also purchase additional images if desired.

Video consultations available

We schedule a video call after booking to discuss your photo goals together. We love the art of photography and are happy to assist. Video calls can be scheduled from 6pm to 8pm Monday through Friday and 8am to 8pm Saturdays and Sundays.

Fully edited images in full resolution

We edit all the images provided to you so that they are of the absolute best quality. These are made available for download in full resolution. 

Third party printing rights

Purchasing prints through us is optional - not required. The release you sign prior to your session has a section that gives you written permission to print your photos through a third party. Prints can be purchased directly through your proofing site if you choose to purchase directly with us. 

 
Free access to future edits from your session

We occasionally go back to prior sessions whenever we come upon a new technique or burst of inspiration that we find fitting for that session. Any artistic edits done using images from your session will be provided to you in a full resolution, digital file without any additional cost to you.

Boudoir sessions come with professional hair and makeup services and your choice of various outfits, props, and settings (Studio, Bedroom, or Bathtub).

Notes: Boudoir photography ​is an intimate art. Your photos will be kept private by default to respect that privacy, allow you the freedom to express yourself, and encourage those who may hesitate to give it a chance otherwise. Those who sign a release for gallery use will receive a $200 credit towards another session so that I can continue to update the website with fresh images.

Girl's Night Sessions
6 hours @ the Artifex Imaging home studio

Group boudoir sessions are a really fun way get together to celebrate as bridal party, a girlfriend's birthday, personal achievements, or just a way to get dolled up and feel great.

The session will begin with one regular (clothed) group image followed by boudoir images of individuals and any group/pairings desired. I highly recommend arriving with your hair and makeup ready, especially if your group is larger than 4 people, to ensure we have enough time to photograph everyone.

This session comes with (40) edited images which will consist of (2) whole group shots, (1) shot of each grouping/pairing as desired, and an even amount of shots per individual (number depending on how many grouping/pairing photos there are). Any remaining images that cannot be divided up evenly will be of the star of the evening (bride-to-be, birthday girl, etc.) if celebrating a special occasion or a group photo otherwise. You will have an opportunity to chose your desired images using a proofing link. Images not chosen before the link expires will be selected by the photographer. A link to the final edits will be emailed to you once your images are ready for download. Please note, this link is not posted on the Client Portal for the sake of privacy.

Water and snacks will be provided but attendees are welcome to bring or order food and non-alcoholic beverages. 

Ideal for: Group Boudoir  

Notes: Bathtub boudoir sessions are only available for groups of 2-3.

Boudoir photography ​is an intimate art. Your photos will be kept private by default to respect that privacy, allow you the freedom to express yourself, and encourage those who may hesitate to give it a chance otherwise. Only the regular (clothed) group image will be used online with the exception of anyone who signs the gallery use release form. Each person who signs the release will receive a $200 credit towards a future session. The credit is offered on an individual basis so that each person can make their own decision. This allows me to update the website with fresh images while respecting everyone's privacy in a pressure-free manner.
