Full Service Professional Photography Sessions
From preparing you for the session and anticipating how to display your photos, to fun of the session, then to in-person proof reveal, design consultation and selection to the final product of ready-to-hang photographic art, you will receive a full-service professional photography experience. Through each step of the process, you will experience specialized care and expertise so you not only feel appreciated and special, but will have a wonderful heirloom to treasure for a lifetime.
This is the first step in the process. This is a no obligation, no pressure meeting to allow you to get to know me and a the process. I will buy you a cup of coffee and we will just talk. We will discuss your session, the reason for the photographs…what story do you have to tell and how you might display the photographs once we’re done. We will get to know each other a bit and I will aim to get a clear understanding on how I am able to best serve you. We will take into consideration the people in the photos, the location options, clothing choices as well as your home decor. You will able to see and touch the various products that are available and begin to anticipate seeing your photos displayed and your history preserved. We will then schedule your portrait session.
This part will be great fun…even for those that don’t usually like to be photographed. We will take our time and make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed so your photos will reflect you at your very best. You may bring changes of clothes, pets, sports equipment, musical instruments or whatever else might tell your story. If we have decided on more than one location for the shoot we will coordinate it for the best lighting base on the time frame.
Reveal Session & Design Consultation
The reveal session is often quite exciting. This is where you get to see the results of all of our previous planning for the shoot. We will meet together about 10-14 days after your portrait session. You will be able view the resulting photographs, consider placement in your home and you will be able to select and order the photographic art products that suit you, your family and your home’s decor perfectly. Please have all people (ie: Mom & Dad) whom will making decisions on which photos to be selected present at this meeting. If you want to bring Grandma, too, that’s great!
About two weeks after placing your order, your products will be ready for pick up. I love this part because the look on my clients’s faces, as they see their memories preserved, is such a joy to me.
Goal for all of this:
My goal if for you enjoy every step of the process and end up with heirloom quality photographic art that tells the story of the individuals and family in the photographs. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
At the time of scheduling your session, we sign and agreement for the date/time/place and you pay a $200-$300 retainer (depending on the session type). If when you get to your reveal session you are dissatisfied with your photos, we can either re-schedule for another day & time at no additional charge or I will give you a refund of your retainer, whichever you choose.
