First, when you contact me for a session, I'll send you over to my 'Packages & Pricing' page and let you navigate your way to a desired photo package. Once this is decided, we can discuss a date, you'd like to book your session for. Next, I will have you sign the "Terms & Conditions" contracts. Once you have THOROUGHLY read, agreed & signed, you may pay your $35 booking fee, locking in your session date. Lastly, I will have you fill out a short client questionnaire, so that I can get all information needed, to complete your session, to the best of my abilities!
It's time for your session! We will meet at the agreed upon meeting place. This is the time I would receive payment for your session, unless previously paid via PayPal. We will then proceed on with the photo session. Client participation is key at this point. If you have a tot at home that still has tendencies to randomly take a nap, Or maybe they have those grumpy moments when nothing will make them happy. Please, do your best to prevent this. Make sure the kiddo(s) have had something to eat, are caught up on sleep, have used the potty; & perhaps bring their favorite toy or two along for the session. I do NOT say these things to sound mean, either. I, as a mother myself, am completely aware that, sometimes, the littles just won't participate. I will still give it my best attempt, give the little one a chance to warm up to me & then reschedule, if needed. My edit turn-around time, is currently 2-3 weeks.
After your session, I go through each and every image taken. I then throw out the out of focus shots, the blinking shots, the random blurred hand shots, etc. Then I edit through all of the decent images. I will then upload these images for you to pick your favorites. (If you picked "Classic" package with 15 photos, then 15 photos is how many favorites you will pick. However, if you decide you want more than what was already paid for, you may purchase more for an additional $20 per image.) Also, if you have any edit requests (i.e., want to see one in black & white, need a certain photo to have exact measurements for a canvas or something along those lines, etc.), they will need to be sent either before or at the same time you deliver your favorites list to me. Once this list is finished & finalized, I will upload them to an online gallery for you to download. I will include the print release at this point. PLEASE READ THE PRINT RELEASE when received! There are crucial guidelines in containing your images! You must know them! You may also purchase a disc/USB for an additional price. (I recommend this. It is easy for you to lose all of your photos when they are only stored in one place, especially a computer or phone that could crash at any given moment. And as stated in my print release, I will not be responsible for storage of your images once they are delivered.) I also have a small list of PRO LABS to do your printing through! I NEVER recommend you print your images from your home printer. I also recommend NOT using Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, etc. The quality of these prints will change the way any photo looks. If you want your prints to look exactly how you see them when I show them to you, please contact me for a list of recommended print labs! I also offer fully customizable print packages.
