Question for you, would your retouching have a certain look, or would you taylor the look to the taste of the client?

The way I've structured my business and my pricing is that I don't do creative edits, which basically means that I'm doing basic colour corrections, exposure corrections, contrast, etc. to bring the image up to a fairly standard quality and style, and then going into Photoshop and doing skin smoothing, taking care of blemishes, etc.
From there the photographer can take that image as a baseline edit (which is definitely more than usable) and add their creative flair to it if they want to.
Of course if I client asks for something specific that's what I'll try to achieve, but the majority of the time the client wont ask and I'll just do my standard retouching.
