The Session Fee covers the Time and Talent of the Photographer

Carlos Cardona Photography is dedicated to creating creative, one-of-a-kind images for our clients, preserving their memories for a lifetime with the best Portrait, Event, or Sports Photography they will ever have. We also embrace artistic risk in an effort to advance the limits of Portrait, Sports, Fine Art, and Architecture Photography.
I am an award winning photographer. I take the time to personalize each session. I scout the perfect location (or use my portrait studio), and add a serious amount of post production work into your images. It is definitely worth the investment (if you want great photos and great prints). The Sessions below cover all preplanning, session and editing time. No obligation to purchase prints with any session! Prints may be purchased after your session.
