So you’ve recently booked a session? How exciting! Let me tell you a little bit more about what to expect from your photography experience.
Before the session
Whether you come to us with a vision for your session or are looking for some guidance, it is important that we know what to expect from each other. Before each session we will be in constant contact through email. We can discuss everything from what you will wear, to poses and styles you like, to the location of the session. We do everything that we can to ensure that you get exactly what you are hoping for from your session.
During the session
For each session we will either meet 1-2 hours before sunset or right around sunrise. These times are when the lighting is best. Each of our sessions will last at least an hour because we want to make sure that we have time for each of our clients to warm up to us so that we can capture photos of you being your true self.
Depending on the package that you ordered, there may be location and/or outfit changes during your session. Please be as prepared as possible so that we lose as little light as possible for each of these things.
After the session
During your session you probably noticed that we took a lot of pictures. We do this because generally, in order to capture the perfect picture, it takes several attempts. Whether it’s a child not looking, a sudden gust of wind blowing your hair all over the place, or just us trying to capture your most genuine smile, we want to make sure that your photos are everything you’re hoping for. As we begin to edit, we look through hundreds of photos from each session and choose 75-150 of the best images from your session. We will then create a proof gallery of unedited photos from which you can choose your favorites. Once your favorites are chosen we will begin the editing process.
Within a couple of days after your session, sneak peeks from your session will be available for viewing on our Facebook page. Please feel free to tag yourself in and share these photos. However, because these photos reflect our business, please do not edit or change them in any way.
Within a couple of weeks of your session, we will create a viewing gallery of your photos on our website. This is where you, your family, and your friends may go to view a complete selection of photos from your session. You may also order prints and download your images from your gallery. Many of our clients find that instant download of their images is the most convenient for them. However, if you would also like a CD of your images, just let us know and we can have one ready for pickup.
Now that you know exactly what to expect, take a deep breath, relax, and prepare to enjoy your photography experience.
