Photography can feel very expensive. I know that things have gotten tighter for everyone. I try to have an option for every budget. I'm willing to barter for services, and make adjustments to collections as needed, because I know this is an important work. In the last few years I've gone back through archives to pull out photos of my own and other loved ones who have passed away. These photos become forever irreplaceable and cherished at those times. I know it's an investment but it's one that is worth it.
