When your session ends, my work begins. The work done in my office, after your session, is equally important for a fantastic end product. Clients don’t realize how much time is actually spent in what I call “post production”. There are a variety of services that I offer my clients. I would like to share them with you.
Have you ever noticed that DaVinci’s Mona Lisa is blemish free? No? It is probably because like the rest of the world, you are mesmerized by her amazing smile. DaVinci didn’t paint Mona Lisa’s flaws. Why? Because she didn’t want to be remembered with a blemish and neither do you! I am a firm believer that a portrait is not much of a portrait without professional retouching. It should enhance a person’s best feature like eyes, hair, or an unforgettable smile *wink wink *! Good editing is almost unnoticeable and should NEVER, I mean NEVER look like plastic. People don’t realize how much work is done behind the scenes by a good professional photographer. Professional touch ups can include (when necessary) smoothing the complexion, removing any bruising or blemishes, and brightening the smile. I want you to look your best. When you look good, I look good. This is why retouching is included in all of my photography packages at no additional cost. Below is an example of retouching. The image on the right is the retouched photo and as you can see subtle is the key.

Artistic rendering is another popular service with clients. These include dramatic color alterations, including traditional black & white, sepia, high contrast, lomo, vintage, and many others. I also have the ability to add an infinite number of textures to the photo for a one of a kind look. I generally include this in every package. The photograph you see below is shown in with a linen texure (top) and black and white (bottom).
Storyboards are combinations of photographs from the session put into a specific order to tell your story. This can be done with any photography session but it is especially popular with engagement and wedding photographs. This service can be added to any package for an additional fee.
Graphic Design Services
I am also proud to be able to offer graphic design services from simple services like collaging images and adding names, to more complex designs like birth and save the date announcements, holiday cards, etc. This service can be added to any package for an additional fee.All images © Siriani Photography 2011 Do not re-post, copy or print
