What to expect~Portraits

Before your session

Let me just start by saying that I believe this photo shoot is about the experience from beginning to end, not just the images themselves. It should be fun not stressful. After all these images will be displayed for years to come, we want to remember how fun it was! We will hand hold you through the whole process from start to finish. We will  have an in person consult to discuss the details, answer any questions. If meeting in person just can not be done, we can do by phone, but really prefer in person. It just makes for a better experience! You can prepare a bit by checking out the FAQ area HERE as well. We will discuss and suggest ideas on what to wear if needed. You can check out my Pinterest board HERE. I also like to discuss your expectations, what are your must have images? Are you planning on hanging these images in your home? Will you want large prints or smaller ones? A photo book to display or gift prints for relatives? All of these things can help us to plan a session. Also knowing a little bit about you helps me create images you will love!  Now that you are ready to book we will set session location, date and time. Session retainer is required at this time to hold your date. I will then email you a link to my client site. There will be an online session agreement and model release to sign.

Day Of Session

We will meet at our shooting location at time and place as discussed in our pre-consultation.  This is the fun part! Time for you to relax and have fun! Don’t worry I will guide you in posing to look your very best. For small children, I have some tricks to get them smiling and giggling in no time!

After your session

Once your session is complete, your job is done! The rest is up to me. I will choose the best 20-30 images from your session, I will personally hand edit them and have them ready for you  in a custom client gallery within 14 days time ( usually sooner!).  We are now ready to set up your ordering session.  This is the best part!  You will be seeing your images for the first time! Please make sure all decision makers are at this appointment. I will come to your home and we will view your custom gallery in a slideshow presentation  and decide what images you want for your walls or albums! I can make suggestions if needed and can give actual examples of YOUR images on YOUR walls through a design program I bring with me! The options are endless so we can be as creative as we want. Once orders are placed, you can expect your pieces delivered by me within 14 days, usually sooner. Special order pieces may take a little longer. Ready to book your session?
