"You have definitely been one my favorite photographers I have worked with. You have been prompt, professional, and clearly care a lot about your clients' satisfaction. Thank you so much!" - K.M.
You contact me. We get on the phone together (or email, if you're feeling shy). You tell me your visions for your photos. Maybe you don't even have any yet, you just know you want to shoot. And I want you in front of my camera. :) We chat. Brainstorm about your goals for your session. I answer all your questions - yes, even the silly ones. We discuss which of my standard packages will be the best fit for you or put together a custom package. You pay the retainer to lock in your date. I send you allllll the info on how to prepare for your session experience and how my process works.
In the weeks before our session, you start to get more and more excited. You look at Instagram or Pinterest for ideas and put together a collection or mood board. You go shopping. You might text me a few times with questions, cause you know I'm here for you.
I touch base with you a few days before your session to confirm details and make sure you're feeling ready. You get a mani/pedi. Maybe a spray tan. The night before, you send final payment (or take advantage of my payment plan), pack up all your wardrobe, and get a good night's rest.
Your session day arrives! When you get to the studio, we'll go through your wardrobe and pick out the best looks. If you went with the makeup and hair add-on - which is highly recommended - my makeup artist will doll you up. While she's pampering you and bringing out your best features, I'll put together final looks. And we'll chat and laugh and get to know each other a little better till you're camera-ready.
And then...we shoot!
I will direct you through everything. Every step. Posing. Expressions. Outfit changes. Fixing that stray hair. Where to look. How to look. How to bring out your sultry. How to twist your core to really nail that shot of your obliques or flex your back muscles so all the definition you've worked for comes through. How to really work the curves and flatter your feminine shape.
Approximately one week later, you'll come back to the studio for your image reveal and selection. We'll look through the images we shot together. You'll be surprised by how many you can't live without. You might cry a little (I'll be crying with you).
You won't. believe. that's. you.
You'll decide on which photos you want in your album, or as digital files, or both. Because you don't want to keep these images under wraps - you know you're gonna post one to the 'gram. Even though you said you wouldn't. You'll order some art for your wall. Even though you said you wouldn't. Because you're going to love every single one. You'll leave walking on air. A few weeks later, you'll have your custom art in hand. And you're already scheming your next shoot.
