What to expect for your photoshoot
Having photos from the memorable times in your life is important. They will remind you in years to come of who you are right now – the hope and excitement of this moment time in your life.
I’m glad you are here, and taking the next steps to capture these special moments. But you might be asking yourself, what does it look like to book a session with me?
Whether you would prefer a call, a text, or an email. Talking with you will help me get a better idea of what you are wanting out of your photoshoot, and it gives you an opportunity to address any questions or concerns you might have. This is also a great chance to see if we are a good fit for working together.
I believe that the more comfortable you are with your photographer the more relaxed you will look in your portraits.
Location, Date & Time
You may have a specific life event that means you need a particular photoshoot date, in that case I will confirm my availability with you first.
For location, I am always happy to photograph your portraits at a new location suggested by you, or I have a handful of amazing locations that have never failed me.
Once we have the date & location chosen, then we will discuss a time that will work best for you. I prefer to shoot as close to sunrise or sunset as possible for the stunning soft golden lighting.
Finalize your booking
The final step is to sign a contract & pay your retainer fee. My contract protects us both and makes sure that everyone has all of the correct information. The retainer fee holds your date and time on my calendar so that no one else can book it and goes towards the total cost of your session. Your photoshoot is not confirmed until I receive both of these back.
By the time your session day comes around we will both have a pretty good idea for the direction of the photoshoot. I always have a few planned poses in my arsenal to get everyone started and ease into being in front of the camera. Every photoshoot and experience is tailored to meet you and your needs, so as the photoshoot goes on and we are comfortable with each other the poses will start to flow and you will feel relaxed. Before we know it our time is done.
After your photoshoot
Within a week of your session I will send you a private gallery link with the soft proofed images from your photoshoot. I will have deleted all of the unusable images (blinks, duplicates, etc.) and done minimal editing to the rest of the gallery only to correct lighting or cropping. You will select the images that you would like me to edit by clicking the love heart icon on your favourites. Once your selected images have been processed I will send you a new email with a new link to your final gallery. You are able to download these images to as many different devices as you would like.
