- The Process -
It all starts with you - Send me a message to get started. I am always able to answer any questions you may have. Once you feel ready to move forward in working with me, we will arrange a date & time to connect. Consultations are done via phone, facetime, or skype - or if we live in the same city, in person. Whatever works best for you.
Here we will discuss where you are at, your ideas, and desires for the shoot, and start discussing our game plan. I like to get a collaborative mood board started, so that we can start collecting ideas for wardrobe, hair, makeup, & locations. This is also a great place to share images that inspire you for, that way we are both on the same page for the outcome of the shoot. This mood board will be a great tool for us to reflect back to, as well, as I often like to add posing ideas to these.
Consultations are held when you are ready to finalize your booking. At this time, a non refundable $100 deposit will be required. This deposit locks in your Session, and goes towards the final investment price. This is generally done during the date of the consultation.
Between the time of your booking and the final shoot date, I will be checking in with you with any ideas we may have, and to make sure details are set in place. I will be available to answer any questions you may have, and give feedback regarding outfits & locations.
About a week or two prior to the shoot date, I will send over a Customized Shoot Itinerary PDF full of our shoot details, locations, as well as Shoot Notes, Tips & Tricks, & any other information regarding our shoot. This outline ensures we are both on the same page and organized the day of the shoot.
The day of the shoot, we will meet up, check in, & begin! Typically, I like to ride share while shooting at multiple locations, to maintain our creative energy flow. During the shoot, you will be guided by myself and able to look at the camera as needed to see what we are creating. I work in a collaborative workspace, and love any ideas you may have! Once we call a wrap on the session, I encourage you to enjoy the rest of your day, being easy with yourself, and ensuring you practice self care. You are literally pouring yourself and your energy into the images - its very normal to feel weirdly tired after a photo session. There is a lot that may come up during, and after a shoot, so meeting yourself wherever you are at is encouraged.
Within the week following our shoot, I send you a private Web Gallery full of Hi Res images from our session. These images are for you to choose your favorites from - and are not yet finished, so they are for your eyes only (they will be done soon I promise!) - You then choose your favorites, depending on the amount of images included in your package, by "hearting" your favorites.
If you would like to customize your session, ad add additional image packages to your session, or order any a la carte items, this is the best time to do so. Details are sent along with the link to your online Gallery on how to do so.
Once you have decided which Images you love most, I begin working my alchemy on the lighting, any retouching that needs to be done, tones, & colours. Each individual image gets magick worked in it, so that every image contains the highest level of intention.
The final images will be processed, edited, & retouched within 2-3 weeks* of you choosing your Favorites from your Proofs. The final images are mailed to you on a USB hard drive, and will contain hi-res web images for sharing anywhere online, or on your phone. Once you have received your final package, you are free to post and use your images however you'd like!
