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. This is your senior year! A momentous time in your life, we want to create amazing images of who your are today and have fun doing it! We will hand hold you through the whole process from start to finish. We will have an in person consult to discuss the details and 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 as well HERE. We will discuss and suggest ideas on what to wear if needed. Check out my blog post HERE for suggestions on clothing choices. Some examples are HERE on my pinterest board. For the guys 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! You will also want to decide if you want to include the MUA (makeup artist) as part of your session choice. You can view session choices HERE. I highly recommend the MUA, not only is it fun and makes you feel pampered and fantastic, it really does compliment your final images. 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 special date. We will also sign your portrait contract and model release agreement at this time.
Day of your session
If makeup is a part of your session you will meet with the make up artist first. I try to stop in to see how things are going. From there we will meet at our shooting location. If not doing make-up, we will meet at the location at time discussed. 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. Don’t forget to bring all those fabulous outfits so we can change through them!
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 premier viewing/ordering session. This is the best part! You will be seeing your images for the first time! 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. Orders are placed at this time so it is important to have all the key people at this appointment. 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? Click HERE or give me a buzz to discuss! Want to learn more about why you should choose me? click HERE!
