I specialize in creating portraiture for clients who value their personal art and want to document their lives.
It is my goal to customize each photo shoot so that it meets the individual personalities, needs, and styles of my clients. No two people are the same, and I don’t think a photo shoot needs to be either! I create this customization in the following ways:
1. A scheduled phone call to get the ball rolling
Once you’ve decided to book your photo shoot, we will decide on a time to talk. During this scheduled phone conversation, it may be the first time we’ve talked and it gives me a chance to get to know you a little better (and you me!), what you’re looking for in your photo shoot, and take down some basic information I’ll need to draw up our photography contract. It will also give you a chance to ask me any additional questions that you may have.
2. A photo shoot questionnaire
Before our pre-planning consultation, I will send out a questionnaire for you fill out in anticipation of our consultation. This will help you think more about what you want for your photo shoot. It will focus our time during our pre-planning consultation so that we get the most out of it!
3. A personalized consultation
During this consultation (preferably in-person, but it can be by phone or by email – whatever suits you best), I can get to know you better and together we will create a session tailored to your needs and wants. We will discuss the location(s) of the photo shoot, a theme for your photo shoot if desired, ideas on outfit choices, props, makeup and hair, and any other questions that may come up.
4. Your photo session
Sessions are based off of what style/theme we decided on at your pre-planning consultation and usually are around 1.5 hours and can be at a local location of your choice.
5. Editing your proofs
Each session usually result in 25-35 edited proofs for you to choose from.
6. An in-person viewing and ordering appointment
Approximately three to four weeks after your session we will get together at your home or mine so you can view your proofs. You will place your order at that time. If you need any help figuring out the best configurations for images on your wall, I’m here to help! That’s part of your customized experience!
