Professional Hair and makeup:

I work with a couple amazing professional hair and makeup artists. Professional hair and makeup starts at $150.00 and can be added to any portrait package.

After the session:

In person premiere ordering sessions, where we will get together and I will present you with your images for the first time in a slide show. I will bring all of the products I offer so you can see them first hand, and then I will guide you through the ordering process.

What if I need to re-schedule?

Things happen, that’s life! If you need to reschedule your session that is completely fine, we will find a date that works both of us. The retainer fee will be moved to secure your new date/time. If the session is cancelled the retainer fee is non refundable. Rachel Girouard Photography has the rite to reschedule an outdoor session due to inclement weather.

All printing through Rachel Girouard Photography is done through a professional print lab to insure that our clients receive only the highest quality products.
