Want to know what a session with me looks like from beginning to end? Here it is, laid out in black & white, for your viewing pleasure!
To Get the Booking Process Started
Contact me via e-mail or by using this handy form, and I will send you a welcome packet that includes all the packages I offer with pricing. Once any questions are answered & a date is settled upon I will send you the session agreement for you to fill out & submit to me electronically. I like to plan my session around the style & requests you have, instead of just doing a generic, same-thing-for-every-person approach- so if you have any specific requests or ideas please let me know in the designated area on the agreement. You will also have a chance to pay with your PayPal account if you so choose at this time. Once the session agreement is signed & submitted, and the deposit is paid you are OFFICIALLY booked!
Before Your Session
A few days before you session, I will check in with you via e-mail. I will remind you of the session, send you directions to my house, and give some last minute info to keep in mind while preparing. If we are doing a newborn session I will check in about three weeks before your due date to remind you about the process of scheduling once the baby arrives.
The Day of Your Session
Almost all sessions start out at my house. I recommend planning to arrive 15 minutes before our scheduled session time. This gives a bit of padding in case you’re running late & also allows us to get acquainted without dipping into your actual session time!
After the session
I come home & immediately download the pictures to my computer & back up to an external hard drive & an online backup. I want your images to be safe! Also, I will more than likely remember taking a couple pictures that immediately need to be edited & shared with the world- well, my Facebook fans at least. You can go ahead and “like” my page if you want so you can easily find me. I will post your sneak peek in 1-2 days immediately following the session on my facebook page.
Then over the next few days/weeks, I edit & obsess over your images. When the images are complete (guaranteed within 3 weeks of your session date, but usually sooner) we can do things one of two ways:
#1 – Reveal Night– You come back over to my house, we drink coffee (or tea, or soda), sit on a nice comfy couch, & view a CUSTOM slideshow of your mages on my 27″ color calibrated iMac Computer Screen. You can look at & touch real life examples of the products I offer to decide what you would like to order (if anything- NO pressure). But hey, you get some FREE print credits included in whichever package you choose…so you need to cash in on at least that! Also, you can decide if you want only the free web-res, watermarked files, or if you want to upgrade to the high-res digital files with print release. Once you decide, I will burn the cd/dvd/usb drive for you to take home the same night!
#2- Online Gallery– If you don’t have time to come back & you are tech savvy & feel comfortable filling out your print/digital file order online I will upload your proofing gallery online to my website. It will/won’t be password protected based on what you selected in your session agreement. You have 30 days to use your print credits but can order more prints any time after that. Your gallery will be up for at least 3 months.
You will receive all your goodies from me within 2 weeks of your final print proof approval. I like to hand deliver so you can expect a call/text/email to schedule a time for me to deliver your goods.
Then we do this all again! Well, if you haven’t already booked a milestone package or scheduled your next session I will wait for your call. 😉
