How Our Photo Sessions Work
The Session Consult
Before your session we do a consult over the phone where we go over ideas for your session, location, clothing, props, theme, etc. With every session I really try to bring aspects of you (and your family) into the theme of the session. Often times I collect or create special props for your shoot based on the consult.
There’s no time limit, there’s no outfit limit. I shoot until we feel like we’ve gotten everything we can. I do ask that you be on time for your session and come ready to start.
The Ordering Meeting
After the session I take your images, choose the best of the best, edit them and post 30-40 of the best images on your own online gallery. I try to have all sessions edited within two weeks of the session, but it usually happens a bit sooner since I can’t wait to get my hands on the images. Then we get together for an ordering meeting where you can see many of the products we offer in person and you can place your print and product order. We usually do these meetings in the client’s home because this gives you an opportunity to show me walls in your home you might want to put prints on. We take a photo of the wall, do some measurements and then superimpose some image options with the appropriate sizes for the wall so you can see what it will look like before you even order!
