David Dadekian believes every person's portraits are unique and he customizes every session to each client's tastes and interests. Portraits are taken on location, so you are welcome to suggest a favorite spot at home or in the local area, or David can recommend many scenic backdrops. The sitting fee is $300.00 (plus 7% RI sales tax) which includes online proofing. Hardcover and paperback press-printed proof books are also available for an additional fee. Please contact David to set up an appointment.


Every photo David takes can be printed in color, black+white, sepia or other art toning and can be cropped, all at no additional cost. Photographic prints are printed on Kodak Professional Photographic Paper (fine art options are below). David personally edits every proof image before making final prints, creating a higher quality print from his raw image, and he can e-mail you a preview of any toning or cropping edits before making your print. Below are some examples of the differences between unedited proofs and final prints.

fine art prints

Dadekian Photo offers the options of having your final photographs printed on fine art mediums such as velvet paper and canvas. The velvet paper is 100% cotton, acid-free paper. It's a thick, heavy stock that is similar in appearance and feel to watercolor paper. David's canvas prints are not made via the canvas bond process. Prints are made directly onto the canvas and include an invisible ultraviolet spray coating for protection and increased longevity. Canvas prints are wrapped around a 1.5" thick stretcher frame, ready for hanging or framing. Fine art prints are less resistant to scratching and damage than traditional photographic prints and should be handled and displayed with care.
