Let's talk end goals and start planning! Starting with the end goal allows us to tailor our work to perfectly fit your family. A consultation allows us get a feel for your family's style and gives us the opportunity to answer all of your questions. Together we'll decide what final results we're shooting for and what we need to plan for in order to achieve that goal. Having a plan for where the images will be displayed will help us determine what to wear, color design, location and overall style for the session. Pre-consultation meetings can take place in the studio, over the phone, or simply through e-mail communication.
Now it's time to put our plan into action! Portrait sessions can often be very stressful for families. From deciding what to wear, worrying about whether or not the kids will behave, and hoping everything goes as planned, you might feel some anxiety about an upcoming session. We do everything we can to create a stress-free experience! Erica doesn't mind crazy kids at all! We'll find a way to get the shot no matter what kind of mood your kiddo is in! Sometimes those crazy, not quite what we were going for images end up being our favorites! Things don't always go as planned with kids, and that is totally fine! We'll just find another way to make it work and go with the flow! Our pre-session planning will also give you confidence in your wardrobe and session style. Everything else will fall into place.
The ordering appointment is where you will get to see all of the edited images from your session and make final decisions on how they will be displayed! We'll meet back in the studio 1-2 weeks after your session to go through your gallery. Your images will be viewed on a large TV in the studio where we'll help you choose your favorites. We'll use photos of the walls in your home to show you exactly what your wall portraits will look like in your space and put together a few mock-ups of wall groupings and album designs to make the decision process easier.
You'll leave your ordering appointment with your digital files for immediate enjoyment, and your printed artwork will be available for pickup 4-6 weeks later. You can pick up your printed artwork at the studio, or we can arrange to have it installed in your home. Drop shipping is also available if you'd like your products shipped directly to your home. Now all that's left is to sit back and enjoy them every day while you watch your children grow and change way too fast!
A lot of our clients come back year after year to update their family portraits. Working with the same photographer gives you a consistent, cohesive style throughout your home. The next time you work with us, we'll create art that coordinates with previous sessions and build around what we've already created for you!
