WHY A CUSTOM SESSION?
Time is fleeting. Moments even more so. The best way to make them last is capturing them to enjoy and remember for years to come. Enjoying them on your walls every day brings joy to the everyday humdrum. Beautiful heirlooms can be passed down to generations to remind of your legacy. Custom photos also make great gifts too. I find true satisfaction in when you fall in love with your photos.
QUICK FAQS AND SESSION INFO
-Your photographer will be a female.
-We highly recommend all of our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done. If you're looking for recommendations of stylists, we can certainly recommend some. Please come to the session fully ready so that getting your hair and makeup ready will not take out of your session time.
-For a 45-60 minute session, we recommend 1-2 outfits max. Since change time does take out of the shoot time, we are generally not able to accommodate more than 2 outfits (you can bring a 3rd just in case we have time). What people choose to wear varies greatly. If you would like outfit recommendations please do reach out and I can help you pick.
-The turn around time is approx. 3 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options for a small fee.
-You can bring a friend to the shoot if you wish. Friends are NOT permitted to take photos with their camera or cell phone. If I see someone taking photos during the shoot I will ask them to stop and things will probably be awkward from that point on. If they continue, the shoot will be over and any remaining session time will be forfeited. If you are bringing a friend to your shoot, it is your responsibility to let them know that other than the hired photographer, photography is NOT permitted in the studio at anytime.
-Once your photos are done, you'll come in studio and choose the ones you want. All photo ordering sessions happen in studio. There are no exceptions. All decisions do have to be made at this appointment.
-Although there is no pressure to get anything beyond your package, all our clients love their photos almost all of them do invest in more. Most clients spend between $400-$1200 on additional images/products.
-Any images you get in a digital format are for digital use only. Any prints you would like do have to be ordered through us. We take great pride in our work and want you to have beautifully displayed images that have been professionally printed.
-All photos have basic retouching done. If you want advanced editing on more photos, such as skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for $20 per edit, per image. Certain edits may need to be outsourced and I'll have to provide a custom quote for those. Most people love the photos with the original edits, and don't see a need for advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-All shoots, photo ordering sessions and print/album pick ups are by appointment only. Please only show up at the studio if you have an appointment.
-If you have any questions about your appointment that have not been addressed here, you can messages me via our Contact Me page. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your session. If you cancel or wish to reschedule and give me less than 72 hours notice, there is a $29 rescheduling fee. There are no exceptions.
-If you have anymore questions, you can visit the FAQ section on our website or Email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also reach us at 949-648-7954; however, since we're with clients most of our time, we can't always answer the phone. If you call, be sure to leave your full name, a detailed message and the best way to reach you and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!
