Family, Couples, Engagements, & Individuals
Perfect when you need to update that family portrait, just got engaged, celebrating an anniversary...or just because! You'll find that your session will be well planned and thought out. It can be a little stressful to get everyone ready for a photo shoot but don't worry, your session will be fun and stress-free. We will meet prior to your session to discuss every detail and start planning. I want to get to know you, and meeting before your session also lets you get to know me so you're comfortable during your session.
You'll look back on your portraits years from now and be filled with the same emotion you have today. The true value of your portraits isn't realized until years after they are taken...that's the truth. Let's go make your memories!
What To Expect
A boutique style portrait service means that the focus is not only on capturing your images, but on also creating a fun and comfortable experience throughout the whole process. I don't shoot a lot of sessions on purpose. The focus is on what's important...your portraits! Your memories that will never fade because you will have your portraits to look back on. I want you to have these portraits forever!
From booking your photo shoot all the way through the delivery of your portraits to your home, you are not alone. Wardrobe or location questions? I'm here to help you! Not sure where to display your family wall portrait? Let's figure it out together.
All sessions are shot on-location usually within the Lemoore or Hanford area. If you have another location, or a specific location, in mind for your photo shoot just let me know. I'm willing to travel to make sure you get the portraits you want. Sometimes the perfect location for you is right in your own back yard...literally!
After your shoot is when your images come to life! I spend about 1 week going through your entire shoot and weed out all the shots that missed the mark and making sure that you only get the best of the best images from your session. I'll do some raw processing, contrast and color correction to each and every image- they'll look great! I'll then create a slideshow, set to music, for you to watch during your Reveal Session! After your slideshow we'll plan the wall art and portrait products that you want for your home. This can be a very overwhelming time, but that's why we schedule your Reveal Session and why I'm there with you the whole time. We can even walk around your home and plan your wall art. Your portraits will become a piece of your family legacy, whether they be senior portraits or family portraits. They will be there for you to enjoy for generations to come! The true value of a portrait isn't understood until long after the image is taken.
Sessions include a custom planning meeting 1 week before your photo shoot so that I make sure I know exactly what you want in your portraits, and so that we can plan locations and gather props we need ahead of time. It will usually take no more than 30 minutes. A 1-1.5 hour on-location photo shoot, and professional retouching of your images is also included. Small, medium, and large prints, custom photo albums, and digital file collection are available for purchase. Hair and makeup is available and can be arranged so that you don't have to worry about anything that day except feeling and looking amazing!
A retainer fee is required in order to schedule your portrait session. That fee is then credited back to you on your final order- think of it like a down payment.
$300 retainer fee is required to book your session and is credited towards your final order.
Cancellation Fee: 50% of final amount paid. If your session is canceled the day of your session no refund will be given. Cancellation fee covers lost income and is non-negotiable.
Now that we've gone through all that information I'd love to hear from you. If you have more questions or are ready to book your photo shoot click below. I look forward to chatting with you.
