The Portrait Photography Process
After submitting an inquiry, based on the type of session you desire, you are e-mailed an online pricing catalog to review our services and pricing information. When you decide to book a session, a date, time and location is selected based on your vision for the perfect photographs. If you are unsure of a location that best compliments your vision and desires, we discuss various options and suggestions in person or through Skype. When a decision is made, a contract is emailed to be digitally signed and invoice sent to pay for the retainer fee.
At the time of booking: When a date, time and location is confirmed, a contract is emailed to be digitally signed and an invoice sent to pay the retainer fee. This will guarantee and reserve the date and time allotted for you. The retainer fee is 50% of the total cost. The payment must be made within 24 hours from receiving the invoice to secure your date. Cash and Venmo payments only. Checks are not accepted. A consultation is scheduled to get to know you better and further discuss your vision and ideas for the perfect photographs.
During the initial consultation: We meet at a coffee shop or grab a drink to get to know each other and discuss different suggestions and start planning your adventure.
After your initial consultation: Once we've discussed your vision, Pinterest board is created for wardrobe guidance and suggestions to best compliment the style and location of your session.
Session Day: Be prepared to sing, dance, play games, cry and laugh! I want you to forget about posing and simply have fun. Don't be nervous; I will guide and direct you at all times. Your remainder balance is due.
1-7 days after your session: I will be excited to share "sneak peeks" on social media and/or blog.
3-4 weeks after your session: You will receive your final images professionally enhanced through a password protected online gallery with immediate download ability. You may select your favorite images to print and order any additional specialty products. Orders for additional products must be paid in full to be placed.
1-4+ weeks after your order: Items ordered may arrive. A much accurate arrival time is provided when an order is placed. When your order arrives, an appointment is scheduled to pick up and review your items. To mail your items, a shipping and handling fee will be charged.
