How do my portrait sessions go?
It is my heartfelt desire for you and your loved ones to truly enjoy every minute of your portrait experience with me. <3
This is what you can expect when you book your portrait experience:
First we will connect through email or phone to set up a pre-session consultation
During your pre-session consultation we'll discuss what kind of portraits you are wanting, what you would like to do with them.
We will talk about any ideas you might have like a themed or stylized session, location ideas, wardrobe ideas. We will take some time to visit and get to know each other a little and of course I will want to know all about your family! I believe it is important to get to know each other before your session, so it will be more like a good friend meeting up with you and your family.
Portrait Session Day! Depending on how far out we booked your session, we will have had plenty of time to chat a few times and we will have worked together to design a fun and beautiful session for you all to look forward to! Now we get to play!
After your session I go and sort through all of our awesome photos we took. I choose the very best of the best 20-30 images and put my personal artistic touch on each one. (That includes removing blemishes, reducingundereye circles, making any necessary adjustments ect...)
Within the first week of our session I will be sharing a couple of sneak peeks for you to tag and brag to your friends and family about on Facebook or Instagram
Then within two weeks of our session you will receive your completely edited gallery of 20-30 images! (you will receive a personal link through the email you provide)
You can then take your time to gush over them, share your link with loved ones, and create a list of your favorites. If you happen to love more than what you originally wanted, that is perfectly fine. You can choose all of the ones you want to download and own, I will contact you for any balance. The following business day I will make those images available for you to download anytime you want as many times as you need to, and you can even share them with loved ones you want to be able to download as well. Keep in mind that all 20-30 images in your gallery will remain so you or your loved ones can order directly from your gallery! Have fun and explore the Shop with all of the awesome and beautiful print items you can choose from. There are some perfect personalized gifts in there.(and I am always here to help you if you need help designing your gallery wall in your home, or you want create a collage or album. I am happy to help you make sure your portraits are out there for all of your loved ones to enjoy! We're in this together girl!)
