I'm still in the middle of editing Otakuthon and Fanexpo photos, so these will take precedence over Youmacon photos until they have all been completed. However, I WILL release previews from Youmacon in a timely manner.

Returning customers: I offer discounted rates to all my returning customers. PM me for details.

Individual - $40 per session, with each session lasting 30-45 minutes. You receive 7-9 retouched shots.
Two people - $60 per session, with each session lasting up to 1 hour. 5-7 retouched shots per person, and 2-3 retouched group shots
More than two people - $20 per additional cosplayer, 5 retouched shots per person, and 2-3 retouched group shots

What to bring to each shoot

1. Poses! -
I typically do a little research on each character/series I shoot ahead
of time, but no one knows that character better than you! The more
poses/ideas you bring to the shoot, the more I can work with, and the
greater the shots will be. Practice your poses in front of a mirror (or
with a friend), rather than just looking at reference photos/videos.

2. Props! -
Pretty obvious if your character has a weapon.  However, for characters
without weapons, a generic accessory that suits your character can also
add to the mood and help tell a story in each photo. Examples of
this include: umbrellas/parasols, books, teacup/saucer, mirror, 
baskets, hats, hairbrushes, stuffed animals, scarves/mittens, and so on.

3. Attitude!
- During the shoot, it helps to be in-character. It goes a long way in
making each shot believable, and maintaining a good flow throughout the

4. Friends/Buddies! - Whether it be for moral
support, pose coaching, or just someone to keep you company during the
shoot, feel free to bring a friend/buddy.

Any questions, please feel free to PM me.
