BEFORE THE SESSION

CONSULTATION

The purpose of the consultation whether in person or via Skype or Zoom is to establish a first time vision and personality connection. Let's be real you have worked with someone or known someone who has dope talent and blah personality. YEP, been there! So it's very important we mesh well on the shared vision you may bring. I'm a talker but equally a great listener and TOP shelf advocate for setting expectations in the door! In this meeting we establish your A to Z and get things planned to rock out!

PORTRAIT GOAL        

This is always important before we even head into the session. What will the images be used for? Do you need digital files or portraits or even both? Let's chat about it!

LOCATION SCOUTING

Locations are an important element in relation to the theme of the portrait session, it can also be centered around if a main portrait will be placed in a particular room in your home. The location can take place in a styled studio , your kitchen, your bedroom, because home is truly where the heart is

TURNAROUND & EXPECTANCY

Portrait session turnaround and delivery of final images is within a total of 2-4 weeks, excluding weekends and holidays. 

READY , SET, GO!

We’ve done the chatting, established portraits goals, briefed locations and agreed on turnaround times and expectations. Lastly, all you have to do is review the POLICIES , complete signed contract and deposit and we are all set!


DAY OF SESSION

ARRIVAL TIME

Please plan ahead...like days ahead PLAN for traffic, hair, makeup and your looks. Try them on a week before the shoot and the day before the shoot. Have a backup just in case. Your session time is expected to start at scheduled time. Arrive dressed with hair and makeup complete ready to shoot. 

PHOTO SHOOT TIME

The session is a directed/candid style type of shoot and will move accordingly. Please schedule for the appropriate amount of time you may need or you can opt to be billed at the end of the session if more time is added at the shoot. Be prepared to change locations, if applicable. 

POSING VS DIRECTING

Soooo I like to call myself a director vs a poser. Posing is boring. It's always natural and fun to move with the flow and allow the photographer to capture you in your natural ,quirky element! TRUST me when i say, "look away and think about your first kiss!"  

WEATHER

The shoot will go as scheduled with a change in location ( in which we would have discussed a back up) if the shoot is planned for outdoors, unless weather conditions are unfavorable. ( Check out Reschedule Policy)

GUESTS

Sessions are limited to only those being photographed. You are allowed to bring one guest to assist you with changing and support.

RAW IMAGES

I don't share or deliver raw images.

Imagine you owned a muffin shop and your customers lovvvvveeed your muffins so much they wanted the exact ingredients you used, the utensils and the exact oven, the step by step recipe to make the muffins exactly like you do , oh and they must come out how you make them. WHOA.... isn't that why you love THEIR muffins.

The unfinished product is not complete and isn't a true reflection on the artist work or brand. And you deserve the best, so yea, polished, finished JPEGS and PNG's ( upon request)!
