My main goal for every session is for you to have a fun and memorable experience from beginning to end. I also want you to feel confident in the emotional and financial investment you are making.
I strive to make sure that the entire process is as streamlined and convenient as possible for you so that we may focus on the fun part – the photo shoot!
This is what you may expect from your portrait session experience:
◉ CALL (239) 370-8499 TO BOOK YOUR SESSION. Your experience starts from the moment you make your first phone call to me. I believe that you deserve the best customer service throughout the entire process. This will not only be a financial investment for you but an emotional one as well and I want you to walk away super happy after your experience.
We will discuss the creative fees and artwork pricing so there are no surprises later on in the process. I want you to have all the facts up front so you will feel confident about your investment.
We will also decide upon a mutually agreeable date for the photo shoot as well as some possible location options. If you can’t decide on a specific location, I’d be more than happy to suggest some beautiful locations that would be perfect backgrounds for your photo shoot. And don’t worry, we can always firm up the shoot location later.
Finally, we will schedule your pre-shoot in-home consultation. All financial decision-makers should be present at this consultation so please keep that in mind when deciding upon a date.
◉ BUSINESS BEFORE PLEASURE. Once we both mutually agree upon dates for your pre-shoot consultation and photo shoot, I will reserve those dates and email a Photography Contract to you to review.
Please take the time to review the Contract as the Creative Fee is non-refundable. You may either digitally sign the Contract and email it back to me, or you may sign it at our consultation meeting. I will email you a countersigned copy for your records.
I love to get business out of the way so we may focus on only having fun, fun, and even more fun on the day of your photo shoot!
◉ PAYMENT OF CREATIVE FEE. I will email a PayPal® invoice to you for the full payment of the non-refundable Creative Fee. You don’t need to have a PayPal® account in order to make a payment through PayPal®. Credit cards, debit cards, and checking accounts are accepted through PayPal®. Financing is also available through PayPal Credit®.
◉ PRE-SHOOT CONSULTATION. During our meeting, we will create your ideal session by discussing location and wardrobe options that match your personality and lifestyle.
We will go over any particular shots you’d like me to take during the photo shoot. However, I find that the best shots are not the pre-planned ones, but rather the candid shots So please don’t stress out about getting THE perfect shot because I promise you that it will happen naturally during our shoot.
I will bring my custom artwork samples so you may see and touch them and start thinking about how best to display them in your home. I’m also very passionate about interior decorating and have developed a keen eye for color and artwork display so I’m always happy to make recommendations of what will look best in your home. We can take some measurements while I’m there which will help us during the ordering process later on.
I will also take some photos of the walls on which you’re thinking about displaying your custom artwork. I have an awesome software program that will show us exactly what the finished custom artwork will look like displayed in your actual home. The best part is, it will be true to scale eliminating any guesswork!
◉ THE BIG DAY. I will meet you at our predetermined time and shoot location. If you opted to have professional hair/makeup done, we will need to arrive at the location at least an hour earlier.
We will have a mini-consultation to go over our shot list. Now that I have already visited your home, I will also be thinking of the best shots to take of you that will look great displayed as custom artwork.
Then we move on to the best part – the photo shoot itself!
◉ ORDER CUSTOM ARTWORK. We will meet at my studio. I will have a presentation of expertly-selected images for you to “ooh” and “aah” over.
We will decide which will look best displayed with the decor in your home: black & white or color.
I will also have images of wall gallery mockups to help you envision what the final products would look like displayed in your actual home.
I offer very high-quality products – I don’t cut corners when it comes to quality. I use a professional print lab that’s only available to professional photographers and it’s one of the top print labs in the nation.
Full payment for the custom artwork is due at the time the order is placed. Credit cards and debit cards can be conveniently processed through PayPal® using my iPhone. Financing for 6 months on purchases over $99 through PayPal Credit is available too.
◉ DISPLAY, ENJOY AND LOVE FOR MANY YEARS TO COME! Your custom artwork will be hand-delivered a few weeks after the order is placed. Please feel free to let out a girlish scream of delight when you open your special packages and couch-jumping is perfectly acceptable behavior as well!
