Part of your session is a one-hour phone consultation. Some clients forego this step because their preferred mode of communication is Email and text, but I really encourage you to take advantage of it. It gives me the opportunity to get to know you and learn a little about your family ahead of time and it also get's you more acquainted with me, which is really helpful on the day of our session. My approach is very relaxed and I want you to be relaxed too. When we speak prior to your session, it helps us both.
Sessions are fun! The most common comment I get is sometimes said with skepticism and other times with a high five.
"You're done? That was fast! Fast and painless"
I want to be your kids' best pal for the day. Quickness isn't me being rushed, it's how I roll. The element of surprise and playfulness helps to catch everybody a little off guard, which gives everybody less time to "Say Cheese". My sessions don't come with cheese.
But I can be chill. Newborns need to be fed and changed or soothed. Shy kids need a little more time getting to know me before I break out the camera. Often teenagers need to be away from their parents. I'm sensitive to all of this and slow it all down when necessary. I work quickly, but don't want you to feel rushed.
About 2 to 3 weeks after your session, we will meet again for your proof presentation. This is the meeting where you might cry, but for all the right reasons. I arrive at your door with your proofs and product samples where you finally get to feel all the beautiful paper. It's overwhelming at first because you want them all but I've become expert in helping you narrow them down to the strongest images. It never hurts to have an idea in advance about what you would like to do with your photographs. Fill a wall? Fill a book? Gifts? You may not know until you see the photographs, but all are good things to think about.
This meeting generally takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. Because of the time and attention I give my clients at this meeting, all orders must be placed at this time.
So many choices! It can be beautiful sparkly Crystal Slab desk frames or your beautiful sparkly crystal USB. I offer the prettiest pretty gifts for the people you love and the people who love you back. To boot my holiday cards that give you rave reviews year after year, and still, none of this counts the most important thing. My prints and fine art albums. Whether your story hangs on your wall or is printed in a book, the paper choices are delicious. Whether you choose 100% cotton, museum quality fine art paper or traditional silver gelatin prints, your images are printed on mediums rated and grated to last generations.
