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.
After contacting me, I will send out an invoice for the retainer, as well as a questionare that will help me to get to know you a little. Sessions are not booked until the retainer has been paid. Invoices must be paid within 24hrs to secure your session time and date. Invoices left unpaid will be canceled and booking for that day will open back up to other clients.
Next is the pre-consultation. This can be done via e-mail, telephone or in person.
We'll discuss the personalities of each family members being photographed, determine a location for your session, go over what to wear, what you'd like to do with the images from your session and I will answer any additional questions you have for me.
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.
2-3 weeks after your session we will meet for your viewing and ordering appointment. This is where you will get to view the images from your session for the first time and may place an order for any prints, products or digital images that you would like. My clients look forward to this appointment. There are no hard sales or pressure to buy. You decide how much you would like to invest and only buy what you love!
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.
