What To Expect
Step 1 :
Scheduling your session
If you haven't all ready scheduled your session here is what you do:
1.Click "Inquire Here" in the menu above
2.Click the Booking Page button at the top of that page
3.Read the top of the booking page and select your session of interest
4.Follow the steps to Inquire
*(Inquiring is just having me check to see if a spot on the calendar is available. You do not pay for your session
or sign the contract until the next phase call.)
* During the booking process you can select a Signature Collection and if purchased at booking you save over 20%
Step 2 :
The Session Itself
Once you have Inquired and then completed the booking steps you are officially on the calendar. A Booking Confirmation email will be sent to you and it will have your date/time and other pertinent information within it.
Every client fills out a "Questionnaire" asking a few simple questions to help the session run more smoothly.
One of the most important questions
will be about the Client Wardrobe. I have collected a stunning wardrobe of dresses and pieces for the family that help create a beautiful esthetic but also ease your stress because you do not have to go out and find clothing
for everyone. This is completely optional but so far has been a favorite service for all my clients.
Perfect location in all weather is the White Studio Space!
The day of the session, please block off 2-2.5 hours (3-3.5 hours for a newborn). Typically we're done within 90 minutes or so, but I don't charge by the hour, so if there's some kind of wardrobe malfunction or child meltdown, I like to stay flexible. If a parent has to leave for an important business meeting but the rest of the family is still available, that's fine... just let me know ahead of time so I can focus on getting that parent in the frame more while they're still available.
Finally, take a breath and relax... I promise to give the grown-ups (and kids) breaks throughout the session as needed, and to make it as painless as possible for everyone involved.
Step 3 :
Within just a couple of weeks of your session, you'll receive a message from me letting you know that your photos are ready.
At this time you will be able to view your session slideshow. You will have access to the slideshow for 24 hours and in that time you will be able to watch your slide show as many times as you would like! Then you will be able to select the Signature Collection of your choice. (More about Signature Collections below)
Once you have selected and purchased your collection you will have full access to your online gallery. The gallery is where you can use the print credit from your Signature Collection and download your digital files.
If you're like me and love to see and feel things like album covers and paper types in person, I have samples of many of the physical products I offer at my studio space and I'm happy to bring them to share with you- Geeking out over paper types and wall galleries is honestly one of my favorite parts of the job!
When it comes to your gallery and shopping I never want you to feel stuck! I'm here for you every step of the way.
Below is a sneak peak inside a gallery and gallery shop to help you see how it all works.
