See what a session is like, step-by-step!
start with the end in mind
We will start by understanding what you want for your portrait session. It is perfectly fine if you do not know the answer to that yet! I will lead you through questions that will help us establish your wardrobe, locations, and other details. Great sessions are the result of careful planning and design on my part, and our design consultation gets me the information I need to do just that.
Design consultations can be by phone, zoom, or in person. Here are a few questions to help you think about your vision before we meet.
a few things you can ask yourself…
HOW do I prefer to look at my printed images? In albums? On the wall? Flipping through a stack of them?
WHERE do I want to display them? Are there empty wall spaces that I have been wanting to fill? Places in my family home, or to take with me as I’m moving out?
WHAT is my style? Do I want images of me in more classic, every-day looks, or something more formal or unique? Some of each?
what to expect
Bring the outfits you picked out, and I’ll handle the rest! I work hard to plan the perfect session for you, so we can keep moving quickly and smoothly and keep it comfortable and relaxed for you. All you have to do is show up. And maybe be okay with getting a just a tiny bit silly.
selecting your images + products
You’ll get to see your gallery of image options at your Ordering Appointment. I’ll be on hand to guide you through selecting the products that best meet your needs, and choosing the images that work best with those products. And because we will have worked closely to coordinate preferences for colors and style, your images will capture your personality and fit perfectly in your home.
delivery + installation
all the way to the finish line
The last (and most thrilling!) step is to sit back and relax as your images are delivered and professionally installed in your home. I will be at your home with my installer to oversee and make sure your final installation is the perfect finish to your portrait experience.
Great portraits start with great relationships, so let’s chat!
