What to Expect
I love planning the details out! Everything from locations to wardrobe and props. We will discuss your session and ultimately, what you want from your session via phone or email, or in person. This gives you a chance to review the welcome and pricing guides ahead of time and have sort of an idea of what you want. We will then go about setting up and confirming your session date by way of contract and paid session fee. I love details, so feel free to tell me everything you wish to make your session dreams come true!
I do offer a wardrobe and proprs for newborn size up to small children (size 4t and smaller),headbands, knit hat/bonnet and pant sets, as well as gorgeous maternity gowns. If you need ideas of what to wear, I have curated multiple "what to wear" Pinterest boards based on the type of session as well as the season.
I will check in with you 1-2 days before your session to see if you have any last minute questions, make a plan B in case it looks like the weather might not cooperate, and to make sure you are ready to go.
At your session, let loose! This is YOUR time, I am just the person documenting it. While I do love posed images, I love genuine laughter and moments as well. So laugh with each other, joke with each other, whatever makes your happy.
After your session is over, one of two things will happen. We can either set up a Photo Reveal Session or I will send you a link to your on-line gallery with your images. Each gallery will hold about 35 images. A Photo Revel Sessions is when I come to your home; or you come to mine, and you will see your images for the first time and you will be able to place your order. I will have samples of the prints, canvases, as well as other products that I offer for you to see. If you are interested in large prints or wall art to be displayed on your walls, I can help you design that as well. Photo Reveal Sessions can be scheduled starting as soon as 10-14 days after your session date.
Photo Reveal Sessions are great if you want to see products first hand, discuss how they will look on your walls, and even invite family to view the images as well as order (hint hint* grandparents!). If you choose not to do a Photo Reveal Session, you will receive an email with a link to view your on-line gallery. With your gallery you will be able to view your images, create and share favorites lists, share to Facebook, and place your order. Images will be available in the gallery for two weeks once sent.
Your order must be paid in full at the time of your Photo Reveal Session or by the expiration date for your gallery. Payment plans are available for orders over $1000. There is a $25 re-opening fee to re-open your gallery if you have not placed your order prior to the expiration date.
No products will be ordered or delivered until payment is made in full. Prints, canvases, and digital images on USB will be delivered within 14 days of order. Digital images ordered directly through website will be available for download immediately after purchase. Albums and memory boxes will take longer due to the designing and confirming process.
