Ashley DuChene Photography ~ San Diego Photographer » San Diego Photography: Portrait and Commercial


We like to keep retouching subtle so that the images look timeless and natural. When you receive your final, selected images from your session you will be happy to see that our retoucher, Jessie, has improved certain details of the image like minor skin flaws, wispy fly-away hair on the crown area, litter on the ground, tourists in the background, etc.  She also enhances the colors/toning for best printing results.

Our clients half jokingly tell us that we save them from “hundreds of dollars in botox, liposuction, and laser treatments” and “If the movie stars can do it and get away with it, then I’ll do it too!!”

Some types of retouching requests may require a small additional fee, generally ranging from $10-$25.  Here are some of the most common Upgrades;

  • Slimming:  We can remove 5-50 lbs upon request with a small fee depending on amount needed (typically $10). This is generally focused on the face, neck, arms, belly, and legs.
  • Head Swaps:  Sound scary?!  Well it’s actually quite a handy retouching technique used for larger group shots.  The goal is to catch everyone with their eyes open and a smile on their face at the same time but occasionally we need to do a head swap.  Head Swaps between photos are $25/per head.

Even with these types of requests, our goal is subtle, timeless and natural looking.
