THE PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION
Consultations can take place in the studio or on the phone. Great photo sessions are not happenstance. They are planned & designed. At the pre-session consultation we will talk goals for your session, what to wear, location, and answer all your questions. Talking things out also helps us get to know you! It’s all fun, laid back planning & chatting.
Don’t worry if you don’t already know what you want. We have lots of options, from wall art to heirloom albums, wall collections, and custom portrait pieces. We will have a cup of coffee & talk it all out. Great portraits begin with great relationships. Let’s get together!
Because we planned for it, this can just be a fun, stress free time! You will know what to expect. No guessing!
THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT
The ordering appointment is typically 7-14 days after your portrait session. At your in-person ordering appointment, you will see your beautiful portraits! We begin with your portrait slideshow set to music. It’s kind of magical! Then, we will help you with ordering decisions of your portraits and custom designed products. It’s important for all decision makers to be present as you will finalize your order at this time. 50% of your balance is due at the conclusion of your ordering appointment.
Quality takes time. It varies depending on what you order. Most orders are ready within 3-6 weeks. You will receive an email when your order is ready for you. We will then coordinate a pick up appointment. If you need your order delivered we can help with that too!
Our session booking fee is $190. This reserves time on our calendar for your pre-session consultation, your portrait session, and your ordering appointment.
All portraits, digital files, and portrait products are purchased separately at your ordering appointment. We offer a variety of options based on your needs. We want to help you put together an order that is customized to you. There is never a minimum; however, most families spend north of $1,000. Contact us if you’d like more information.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE DIGITALS?
Just like you, we love to share images too! Every wall portrait comes with a social media file, so you enjoy your favorite portraits on your wall at home and share them on your digital wall! We also offer high-resolution digital image file packages.
If you choose to purchase high-resolution files, along with a USB drive, we also upload your images to our print fulfillment site which links directly to our professional lab. Here you can order prints that are on par with what we would print you here at the studio. This is a pro-level lab, so they will match the color calibration information in the files and properly print your images. Their prices are competitive with other consumer labs and they ship right to your front door. Easy! But don’t worry, should you need help that’s what we are here for! We are a full service studio and are happy to help through the entire process.
