What to expect from your session

The process

Before, during and after your session with Linda.

 

Before your session

The first thing to think about when booking a session is, what would you like to do with the images we create during your session? Would you like to update that family portrait hanging above the fireplace? Put up a collage of images on that empty wall you keep looking at? Maybe you would like an album where you can sit and flip through it page by page with your children which can be passed down from one generation to the next.

Having an idea of what you would like to do with the resulting images, helps me to create a plan for your session and how to go about photographing it so that we reach your end goal and leave you with images you love and are excited to display.
 

Booking your session

After we've discussed the type of session you would like to have and you've decided to move forward and book a session, I will send out an invoice via email for your session deposit (creative fee) which can be paid by debit or credit card. Once this fee is paid your session is officially booked and on the my calendar. Please note that your session deposit is due within 24 hours of booking your session. If I do not recieve your payment within 24 hours, your session date and time will open back up to other clients.

The Pre-Consultation

This can be done via e-mail, telephone or in person. We will discuss your session in more detail. I will ask about the personalities of each family member being photographed, we will determine a location for your session and discuss what to wear for your session. We will also discuss what you'd like to do with the images from your session. Are you interested in prints or do you want digital images? Maybe an album would fit your needs. At this time I will also answer any additional questions that you have.

Your Session

On the day of your session, I want you to arrive excited and ready to have fun. Leave the worrying to me and don't stress if your kids are not cooperating. All kids are different and some may need more time to warm up. Thoughout your session I will be capturing both posed and unposed images. I will encourage interaction by giving differnt prompts and playing different games. By incorporating fun activities into your session we turn family picture day into a day of fun not only for the kids, but for the whole family.

Viewing and Ordering

After your session I will spend the next 14 days editing your session and perfecting your images. During this time I will be contacting you to set up your viewing and ordering appointment.
At your viewing and ordering appointment you will get to see the fully edited images from your session for the first time! During this appointment you will also get to use your print credit and order any addition prints or digial images that you would like. There are no hard sales, purchase only what you love with no minimum print order.

Delivery of Products

Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery of printed products such as prints, cards, canvases and albums. Once your order is ready I will contact you to arrange for pick up or delivery.

*If you are on a payment plan, please note that your print order will not be processed and digital files will not be delivered until the final payment has been received. Thank you.
