The Portrait Process
The Portrait Process
You decide that it's your time to own this moment, you love my style of work and you want to book me as your photographer. YAY!! So after you simply fill out your Session Inquiry + Client Info Form and take a peek at my Session Pricing Guide, I'll email you to schedule a time to chat on the phone, facetime, or skype.
We will talk about everything, and I mean everything... my available dates, your style, your interests, your hobbies, what to expect during the shoot, how I work, the process in full detail, and answer any questions you have about your shoot. This is also the time where I will be giving you the full run-down on the price guide, what the session includes, and how to officially book your session.
Reserve Your Date
Let's work! Yeah... we've talked about dates already, but your session isn't fully booked until you submit your non-refundable session retainer of 50% of your session fee. Once I've received your payment, you're officially on the books, I email you over our portrait agreements so that you may sign and submit those at this time as well. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to our session.
About two weeks before your session (depending on when you booked your session) I will email you to set up another time for us to chat about your session. We will talk about location, ideas, incorporating your hobbies, and most importantly... your outfits. Together we will pick out your looks for your shoot. Your final payment will be due at this time.
Yes! The big day is finally here! You may as well get ready to have fun, but it's definitely going to be just that! About 1-2 hours before your shoot, you will meet with a professional makeup artist. (Makeup can be added for an additional fee unless it's included in your session. Check the Session Pricing Guide to see which sessions include makeup. Make up is preferred and HIGHLY recommended... so high that it's almost required). When you're all ready, we will head out and have fun showing off your moment.
About a week (7-10 days) after your session, I will upload your retouched images to an online gallery where you will be able to download and backup your photos, pick your photos for print, and share on social media. Prints + products will be delivered within 3 weeks after ordering. Once your prints have come in the mail, share them with all of your friends and family. Celebrate your moment!
