Every photographer running a professional business has their own style, their own awesome way of doing things. It's just part of what makes them unique. However, as a client going from one photographer to the next...things can get confusing. This page is to help ease your mind and let you know how we run our business, a little of what to expect with your experience with us, and of course...a little bit of legal mumbo-jumbo.
We schedule only 5-6 portrait sessions each month in order to focus more attention on each of our clients and their specific needs. We like to get to know you in a planning consultation, take our time during your session to get all that you want and need, and we LOVE to have you back to our studio for a relaxing viewing and ordering consultation about a week after your session. All of these take time to schedule, but are totally worth it when your images become all that you have dreamed. We strongly encourage you to contact us at least one month in advance of your session date. This will allow us time to get to know you and customize your session to your specific needs.
For most of our sessions, we require a $200 booking retainer (Exceptions for mini sessions) . This retainer is due at the time of booking and signing your contract. Once your contract is signed and your payment is processed, we are good to go ahead and set-up your planning consultation. If payment is not made when you sign the contract, we will not be able to hold your session date and time.
We have a ton of ideas! We are certain you do too! That is why we are here to help you get the most of your session, and why we schedule a planning consultation approximately 10-14 days before your photo session. While we have several props available...baskets, bonnets, gowns, etc, we love to make each session custom to you. In your planning session, please feel free to bring items that are special to you...hand-made blankets, cowboy hats, baby booties, ultra sound images,....we want you to show us what matters to you. During your planning consultation, we will tour the studio and discuss at length colors, styles, and how to incorporate your special items to give you the best portraits possible.
After your session, each image is professionally edited. At no additional cost to you, we retouch our images for facial imperfections on each individual. Further alterations AFTER you view your gallery can be done at an additional cost of $100 per gallery.
When your images are ready, you will receive an email to schedule your Viewing & Ordering Consultation. During this consultation we will sit down and go over all of your images in detail. You will personally pick out your complimentary social media shares, check out our amazing heirloom products, and we will help you place your first order. All orders placed during your Viewing & Ordering consultation will receive a special extra discount.
After your viewing consultation, you will be emailed a link with an access code to your private online proofing gallery that is open to you for 4 years of additional viewing and ordering. This gallery link may also be shared with your friends and family at anytime for their viewing and ordering pleasure. After your gallery has expired at 4 years, the gallery and all images will be deleted from our system.
