Please read the following to get a better idea of how this journey will be for both you and I!
Start of the process
In order to book a photoshoot with me, you must first inquire through the Contact page. Once I receive your inquiry, I will send you my brochure with different packages and add-ons that you can choose from. After you select the best package for you, we will talk about ideas, mood, and other details. If you choose a Mini or Regular Session, we will into depths on all the details during a 30 minute Zoom meeting or a Facetime. I will then answer any questions you may have. If you would like to meet in person, it is also possible. After we meet, I will help you finalize all the details for your shoot and send you my proposal along with the invoice and contract. You must then sign the contract and reserve your shoot with a $100 non-refundable deposit. Please keep in mind that you will need to pay a new deposit if you need to reschedule for any reason. Once the contract has been signed and your deposit has been sent, we can start planning your shoot. At this point we will create a Pinterest board with inspiration.
Before the shoot
Feel free to reach out at any time if you have any questions, concerns, if you decided to change your outfit, or if you just want my opinion.
Special note for those of you who want to utilize my makeup artist: I work directly with Makeup by Nina. Make sure you reach out to her directly after we have our Zoom consultation! Coordinate with her the time of the session, the pricing for the services you are wanting, as well as any ideas or inspirations you have for your makeup look. You can find her website and contact information here.
The week before the shoot
A week before your shoot, I will reach out to you to make sure you have everything you may need ready. I will also send you my Pre Photoshoot Brochure with additional tips and information about posing and how to get ready for it, as well as my address. At this time I will answer any last minute questions/concerns you may have.
The day of the shoot
Please arrive on time. Note that if you are more than 30 min late, the photoshoot will be canceled. The shoot will last for the length of time you booked. If you wish to stay longer or wear more outfits, you are more than welcome to book more time as long as you let me know in advance, Please give me ample time to prepare as I do sometimes book back to back photoshoots.
After the shoot
Within 7 days after your shoot, you will receive a preview gallery to choose the number of photos you paid for. The gallery will have examples of color and black and white edited photos to give you an idea of what the final result will look like. You will have a month to let me know which photos you chose. Unfortunately, if I do not hear from you in a month, the photos will be lost. Once you choose your photos, I will edit and deliver within 30 days. You will also have the option to select more photo to be edited and/or buy the entire gallery. All at an additional cost. Once I send you the gallery, you will be able to download the pictures to your phone or computer. It is important that you make sure to download the images within 30 days. You can then enjoy your photos that we created and use them as you please! It is always good etiquette to credit your photographer when posting the images to social media, and it is greatly appreciated!
As mentioned, the preview gallery will include all the photos from your photoshoot and some color and black and white edited photos that will help you have an idea of what the final product will look like. One the preview gallery, you will be ale to pick your favorites and comment what you would or how you would like it to be edited. Preview galleries will be sent only if you select a Mini or Regular Session.
I charge a non-usage fee for all and any client that prefers if I don't use images of them for my business. My top priority and purpose of my business is to deliver beautiful photos to my clients, in hopes of exceeding all of their expectations. However, I also use those photos in order to promote myself, show my work, and display the hard work that I put into my craft. In doing so, I am able to continuously book clients and make a living doing the thing I love most. That being said, I am aware and understand that you as a client, have value and can make the decision of not wanting me to publish our work together in my portfolio. If you decide you don't want them promoted on my page or in my portfolio, I ask that you are understanding of why I charge a compensation fee.
