Upon contacting me, we will schedule a pre-session meeting prior to the actual photography session. This planning session will allow for us to get to know one another and review your ideas and hopes for your session. I will also go over your expectations of the session and some tips and tricks on how to make it the most enjoyable experience possible for everyone involved. We will also discuss the online gallery program I use to make sure when you receive your link you will be ready to go. We will also revisit the scheduled photography session date, time and location.
Each photography session is a unique experience based on the people invloved, type of session and time of year. That said I have pulled together some basics of each step to help you get a better understanding of how I work and what to expect.
I come to you! Want to do a session at your house? The park? Your business? Wherever it is, my studio comes with me and can be set up pretty much anywhere. If you're not sure, no worries we will have already discussed this at the Pre-Session Meeting and figured out the perfect spot. During the session we will work at a pace comfortable to you and have a good time and hopefully some laughs. The session will fly by and if children are involved will probably feel like a whirlwind (a good one). The most important thing to remember during the session is to enjoy the moment. Kids will be crazy, things will go different than expected, rain will fall, and in the end you will end up with some great photos that you didn't think possible. Enjoy it, and that will show through in the photos!
Photo Planning/ Ordering Meeting
You've seen all your options, you've picked out your favorites, now its time to meet up and figure out what to do. At the photo planning and ordering meeting we will talk about your favorite photos and what your plans are for them. Do you just want the digital files so you can run and be creative with your photos? Perfect! Would you like me to create a personalized item (photobook, creative print, blanket, canvas print, etc.)? Excellent. I love thinking beyond the frame in what can be done with your beautiful memories so we will take a moment to brainstorm and make sure that you get your full use of your photos! This is NOT a sales focused meeting. I don't want you to purchase anything that you don't absolutely want and love. This session is solely focused on helping you figure out how to best use and enjoy your photos. How you accomplish it might be through me, it might not. Either way I love to help figure it out.
Within two weeks of the photography session you will receive a link to your private online viewing gallery. This gallery will allow you to review the photos taken and select your favorites as well as share with your friends and family. Click here for more information about the online gallery program I use.
