About Me

Hello ^_^
I'm Suzanne. I model full-time and I'm a photographer as well. So I'm used to seeing an image from all perspectives. :) I pride myself in being fair with pricing, friendly to work with and sensitive to time. I do model mainly but still make sure I have time for editing work. This freelance work is how I pay my bills. So it's important to me to keep clients happy and maintain a steady business. Also, given my time available to dedicate towards editing, I am able to turn photos around quickly.

I also always edit multiple versions of each photo with basic retouching at no extra charge (unless you do not want). With all edits, I will provide a unique Black & White or Antique Tone conversion as well. Also I tend to throw in 3rd creatives versions at no extra.

When Contacting Me...
-Have a price in mind. IF you know your budget, tell me! It helps the process. :)
-Please be prepared to tell me what you want out of it so I can quote pricing accurately.
-Tell me ahead of time what you want for [b]skin editing[/b]. This is a very important aspect that gets confused. Whether you want completely smooth, all natural (no smoothing, just blemish correction), high-end even skin ..whatever... I prefer to have a sample of "this is what I like" and "this is too much" so I know where you fall :)
-If applicable, Provide samples of the quality of work you are expecting. I can do some damn good work in 5-30 minutes. But if you are needing high-end, very detailed retouches, then I need to know that too.
-If there is a specific look you want, show me! I can always try to duplicate or make that styling fit for your photo.

[Range from $5 (bulk rate) or $10 and up per photo based on desired work]
Please contact me with YOUR budget. I almost always can work within any reasonable budget . Or explain to me what needs to be done and I can quote you for the project or ongoing work and I always offer fair bulk rates. Steady client rates ALWAYS are lower and take priority.

**Turn around time**
-Based on a Monday-Friday work week-
This completely depends on what needs to be done with the image. I do model full-time so can have a crazy schedule but will keep you informed of my availability for editing or let you know if there will be any delays. If I have multiple jobs, it's first come, first serve. So please let me know if the photos are urgent. As if I state I have another job or two to finish first, that could mean a few days to a week added for time.
Basic edits (simple skin corrections, smoothing, eye enhancements, color adjusting, etc.) are as follows:
*1-10 Photos: Within 2 days
*10-30 Photos: Within 4 days
*30-50 Photos: Within 1 week
*50-100 Photos: Within 2 weeks
Please allow more time for advanced edits & larger quantities.

Payment accepted via PayPal.
If you happen to be local, Cash or Credit Card is fine too :)
In rare occasions I do accept checks.

[i]All current clients pay 100% up front. I am trustworthy and if something happened to where I couldn't perform the necessary edits, I'd refund you immediately. If you aren't comfortable with that I'm willing to work on a 50% before and 50% after method. With this, 50% required before I start edits and the rest after I have sent you watermarked proof images. After payment received in full, all full-sized, unwatermarked images will be sent. [/i]

Models/MUAs: Only send me photos if you have verified with that photographer that it is okay to have others edit.
