Information For You
A photo session is something different for everyone. Of course, the end goal is the same - great pictures - but the reason for the photos is what differs from one session to the next.
Whatever the reason or purpose for the photographs, we will be happy to help you choose the right clothing, accessories and makeup. If you have any questions or concerns or simply need more information, please don't hesitate to just ask. We're here for you and we want you to have a fun, memorable experience in addition to getting the best portraits possible.
After your session, you will be able to view online proofs (un-retouched) of all the usable images. From these images, you may choose the ones you want, per your package selection.
We view this as a collaborative effort, so don't hesitate to ask for our input if you have a hard time choosing. (If we've done our job, you will!)
Once you have picked your images, based on the package you have purchased, those images will be retouched and delivered to you as high-resolution image files via email or other electronic means and/or on a CD. The high resolution files will meet printing requirements. For web and online portfolio use, low-resolution versions of the image files will be provided, as well.
To ensure the best possible results from your photo session, we suggest the following basic "Do's and Don’ts":
Please avoid clothing with "busy" patterns and/or logos. Not only do these types of clothing items detract from the images of YOU, they may render the images un-usable due to potential copyright issues with logos.
Make sure your clothing is clean and wrinkle-free.
Be mindful of the wardrobe colors you select; pastels, earth tones and other muted colors are best.
Bring three to six outfits to your session. While it is unlikely that all items will be used, the additional possible choices make it well worth the effort.
Make sure your clothing fits you properly.
Choose different styles of clothing for your commercial and theatrical shots if these are what your session is for.
Bring bras and/or undergarments in colors that match/coordinate with your outfits.
In addition to the images included in your selected package, you may purchase prints and other items from your session on an a la carte basis.
Typically, we can complete your photo session within two weeks of the time of booking. The exact date and time will be set when you book.
A $100 retainer and a signed Agreement is due upon scheduling your photography session. (The retainer is refundable only if your session is cancelled with at least 48 hours notice.) The balance is due on or before the day of your session and must be paid before work begins.
