Begin Here > Step 1:
We speak over the phone or in person for a complimentary consultation, in which case, we fully discuss the type of session you desire and set up expectations. I will ask you some basic questions to draw out some ideas. We may discuss topics such as: locations, who is in the photos, styling/attire ideas, posing, session and print pricing, fine art prints, how to book the session, model release/agreements etc.
Book it! If you love my work and you are pleased with our phone conversation or meeting, we then move forward to book your session date. To secure your spot, I require a non-refundable deposit in the amount of your session fee and a signed photo agreement. At this time, I will send you detailed information regarding styling tips and print pricing/packages, date confirmation, alternate dates, etc.
We make photo magic! One of my favourite parts! If you’re dreading it (or someone else in the family is) I promise to make it enjoyable and fun. You may even forget that you’re in front of the camera! Most likely we are looking at a 1.5 hour session or a bit longer for newborn photos.
Note: If it is raining, we may have change locations or reschedule to our alternative date.
Print Viewing and Ordering Session! In 1-2 weeks from our session date, I will have your photos edited and ready for the big reveal; kind of like Christmastime! This is one of my favourite times in the photo process, when I get to see and share your emotions and reactions to how the photos captured your special moments! Once you’ve chosen your favourites, I will assist you in choosing the products that best display your photos. I use my iPad and a special program to create visual layouts and designs with the actual dimensions of your space, in order to determine the best fit of canvas and other print displays. We may also talk about album designs, gift prints and purchasing digital files.
Printing! After the Ordering Session, I will complete final edits and send your images to print. I will hand deliver them (if local) within 1-2 weeks or send them via post within 4-6 weeks, depending on your location.
That’s it! Well…not really, my hope is to be your photographer for life, seriously, (more on that in my next blog entry)…so for me this isn’t the end, just the beginning…and possibly where clients become friends, and for that I am truly blessed.
If you are looking for a photographer who can provide you with well-rounded customer service AND genuine, beautiful, and creative photographs of you and/or your family, I’d love to hear from you! You can e-mail me at email@example.com, or phone 705-220-4761 to begin our conversation! 🙂
I photograph weddings too! (I have a few spots available each year) They have a similar process to a regular family session. If you’ve recently gotten engaged, give me a call and we can start the conversation 🙂
