Pre-session consultations can be done just about anywhere, but the preferred location is at my home office or your home. It is simply a chance to sit down and get to know each other and ensure a good fit. This is also when contracts are signed
There are a quite a few options when deciding where to do your session. A few suggestions include; around town, in your home/yard, at our local parks, or a combination of any of the above. There is also a beautiful outdoor setting right at my home office and a few options for indoor sessions. The location really depends on your personality and style.
Outdoor sessions are best done early in the morning from twilight to day-break (my favorite) and in the evening from sundown to twilight. This is when the natural light is most flattering and additional lighting is not needed. I do not limit sessions to number of poses or time. I will work until we get the shot right. The only exception is outdoor sessions or extreme circumstances.
Sessions are generally booked 1-2 weeks in advance (2-3 weeks during the Holiday season).
We do traditional senior portraits in a small area set aside at my home office, as well as themed on location sessions. Themed sessions are our favorite. We want to show who you are during this stage of your life, not just another picture in the yearbook that looks like every other picture. As with all the other stages of life that we photograph, you will only be exactly the way you are right now. When you go off to college, you will change. Take the time to capture who you are now.
Payment is due when sessions are booked. A deposit can be made on a baby plan when the session is booked and the balance paid on session day. If you cancel your session without 48 hour notice or you are a no call/no show you will still be charged a fee of 25% for the session.
Gift certificates are also available for purchase. They make wonderful gifts for almost anyone. There are two (2) options to choose from. You can either purchase a session with a set number of poses and time limit or a written dollar amount to be used for prints and products.
Financing is also available (terms and conditions apply).
In-person or on-line ordering is available. We schedule an in person appointment at the end of the session for the following week for you to review your images and pick your favorites. Orders take 2-3 weeks minimum for printing. Some products and retouching can take much longer.
