And one day when you look back upon your images, you will be so thankful that you took the time to have professional photos to capture the emotions and expressions. Reminisce!
BOOKING PROCESS After you have decided that you would like to hire us, we’ll ask you to commit to the session by signing an agreement and paying a retainer. This will give you peace of mind to have everything in writing, so that you know exactly what you are getting.
Next we’ll get a date on the calendar. We will contact you either via phone or e-mail to confirm within 24-48 hours of our scheduled shoot. The remaining payment will be due on the day of the shoot. The only exception is wedding photography, which must be paid in full two weeks prior.
On the day of your shoot just have fun and be yourself. After the photoshoot, we will transfer the images to my laptop and we can review and pick your favorite photos to retouch – and you will choose your packages at that time. We’ll send you a few images from your session at least a couple days following the shoot. The final edited images will be ready within ten to fourteen days of your photo session. Turnaround time for custom products will vary.
What to Wear: Tips for Selecting Your Wardrobe A lot of people ask what they should wear to their photo session? After all, these photographs will become a staple in your family frames and albums for years to come. Choosing timeless, yet appropriate attire will lend to the positive outcome of your photo shoot.
If it’s an indoor session, choosing soft, warm colors can be very pleasing to the lens. Outdoors, you can opt for bolder colors, earth tones or contrasting, such as big stripes paired with a solid color. Pinstripes or small dots generally do not photograph well. Wearing accessories can add a nice touch, but try to avoid accessories that are too big as they may overshadow your face.
• Choose soft colors, such as pink, light blue, lavender, yellow, etc. for dreamy looks • Choose bold colors such as red, black, dark blue, purple or orange for dramatic look • Minimal accessories are best, as too big or too many can detract from the image • For children, bring outfits that have a lot of creativity behind them. They can be fun, layered looks, sporty, textures (tutus and ruffles for girls look so cute!), jeans, khakis, sweaters, skirts, dresses, etc. “Sunday” wear dress code works well
• Men, avoid wearing white socks with dress shoes. Make sure your shoes are clean, not raggedy or muddy. Barefoot photos can also be fun! For the women, boots, heels, sandals or dress shoes look great.
