We can talk on the phone or schedule an in-person consultation where we will discuss what you want from your images. We will discuss the shoot, what to wear, where you want to go for the shoot (in studio, on location or both!) and what you want to do with the images after the they are delivered. That will affect the way I shoot the session so that I get the images you want to display. Photographs should be displayed not just hidden in the drawer on a USB drive. So every packages includes prints, canvases, portfolio boxes and albums! We can customize any package to fit your needs. If you give me a photo of the room you want to decorate with your images I will mock up an example using your images! (I can give you directions on how to do that when we talk.)
WHAT TO WEAR
People always think they have to go out and buy all new clothes for their shoot. While buying a few new pieces is always fun and can be a great way to get excited about your shoot, you don't have to go out and buy all new clothes that don't represent who you are. You want your photos to look like you and show off your unique personality. If you're struggling with what to wear, I'd be happy to make suggestions :)
If you want to add something out of the ordinary like a gorgeous gown or something for a themed shoot, we can absolutely incorporate that! We also offer Extreme Shoots as an add on for athletes, dancers, musicians, etc. So make sure you bring all your gear!
We'll meet at my studio and start with your yearbook shot (every senior shoot includes a yearbook photo that I will edit to the yearbook company's specifications and upload for you). We can either stay in the studio for a bit or go straight out to your location! The sessions take anywhere from 1 - 2 hours depending on what we've planned. We'll laugh, have fun and get great images you're going to LOVE!
THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT
Two weeks (or less!) after your session, you'll come to the studio to view your images, order your products, pick artwork for your home and decide on your album or folio box. Bring anyone you want to your session (especially if they'll want photos!) because we'll be placing your order at that time. I'll be there to guide you and provide suggestions if needed :)
My sitting fee is $150 and is collected at the time of booking. That serves to secure your session date and will also be put toward anything you purchase!
Digital files are great for social media, sharing on your phone - they're important to everyone! The digital files of images purchased are available in 2 of my packages or sold separately on the a la carte menu. Packages start at $425 and go from there and include prints, wall art and much more!
