What to Expect
First, I want to take some time to get to know what is most important to you when it comes to portraits. After you have scheduled your session, we will have a more formal consultation to discuss concept and wardrobe options. Wardrobe styling plays a huge part in the overall feeling of the final images. Earth tones, pastels, lace, natural textures, stripes, vintage, and bohemian looks best complement the style of my work.
Choose Your Location
Next, we will determine where the session will take place.
You can choose to schedule your session:
- In Nature
- At Your Home
The Portrait Session
A session with me will last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. I offer subtle direction and minimal posing with young children. When I'm working with your child, you can simply sit back, relax, and delight in the process. Young children tend to open up even more when parents quietly observe and offer a supportive smile along the way. I offer a bit more direction with older children and adults.
Fine Art Retouching
Following your session I will carefully review your images to select the most captivating photographs. I will then apply customized, fine-art retouching. Each image receives individual care and attention, and I consider how they complement one another as a whole. This is similar to the process of curating images for display in an art gallery.
Image Presentation & Ordering
After I have fully retouched the images, you can look forward to a marriage of dramatic + emotive images in artful presentation within 2 weeks. From here, you will select which prints and products will work best for your needs. We can absolutely do this in person for a personalized ordering experience. Otherwise, I will create an online gallery that can be viewed for 7 days. There is no minimum order required - simply purchase the images you love most. After you have submitted your order and paid in full, you can expect your beautiful, finished portraits in approximately 3-4 weeks.
