Picture a professional photography experience that is planned around who you are and what you want. Where your photographer takes time to get to know you and your loved one(s) so they can create images and printed photo products you’ll treasure. That’s my goal for your photo session. I’ll want to help you choose a photo location that’s perfect for you and provide all the tips for what to wear and how two prepare so that you have an amazing picture day.
After we capture your images, I am still there for you! We’ll meet in person so I can help you select your favorite images, and decide how to print them. I’ll show you beautiful products you can purchase for your home and you’ll get to see mockups of your wall art, books and albums before I place your order! When they arrive, I’ll personally deliver them to you and help you hang your wall art if you would like my assistance.
Step 1. Your Inquiry
If you’d like to book a professional photography session with me, the first thing to do is connect via a phone call. I want to understand what you’re looking for and answer any questions you have. After our call, I’ll send you more info and links so you can schedule your planning meeting and portrait session.
Step 2: Your Planning Meeting
Your planning meeting is where we get to know each other better. I gather the info I need to create personalized plan for your session and artwork. We talk about photo locations and what to wear. We discuss the personalities of those who will be photographed, their abilities, likes and dislikes. Even if we don’t have final decisions on everything at this meeting, it helps both you and me know where we’re heading so I can make recommendations that make sense for you. It’s how I make sure your session and photos are everything you hope for!
We discuss my policies, products and pricing and I answer all your questions, so there are no surprises later on.
The entire meeting usually takes around 30 minutes or up to an hour and we can meet via video call, in your home or at a local cafe. Wherever YOU are most comfortable!
Once we have a plan, I’ll email your invoice to pay half the session fee. The other half will be due the week of your session. I’ll send you all my handy guides to help with final decisions on location and wardrobe and how to prepare for picture day. I’ll be available for any questions you along the way. I’m just a phone call or text away, and if you want, I’ll even come in person to help you decide on outfits.
Step 3: Your Professional Photography Session
Your portrait session will be laid back and fun. The preparation guide will have you feeling ready and confident. Our planning session will have prepared both you AND ME with everything we need to create great photos together!
No more awkward photos! I’ve been trained in lighting and posing, so I know how to prompt and guide you to bring out you best. I’m experienced ta finding or making great light for beautiful photos. We’ll get some candid, moving shots and maybe even play some games to get you laughing. My goal is to help you relax and truly enjoy your self. I promise it’s easy, and you’ll rock it just by being you!
Step 4: Your Ordering Appointment & Product Delivery
We’ll get together 1 or 2 weeks after your photo session so that I can show you the image gallery in person. This can be done via zoom or in person. You’ll see a slideshow of your session before we walk through your images one by one. You’ll select your favorites, note any retouching requests and finalize your order.
You won’t get a hard sell from me since I have no interest tin selling you anything you don’t want! I’d rather have a happy, repeat client! I’m here to help you get what you DO want and make that process as painless as possible by offering you my expertise.
Afterwards, I’ll prepare your portraits for print and order your books and wall art. When they arrive, I’ll make sure they are perfect, then deliver them to your home or office, ready to display and enjoy!
