Frequently asked question.....
I suggest that you call me as soon as you know you want me to photograph your family, child or do a special portrait (senior, maternity and so on) as I do book rather quickly.
The reason for that is that is that I only book photo shoots on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturdays. I also only book one photo shoot per day to keep up with all the work that goes into each photo session.
You must understand that when you commission me to capture your portraits I commit an average of 20 hours to your session alone. This time includes a one hour weekday appointment (10am to 2pm appointments available) where together we plan the session. We discuss clothing, locations, and your vision to make sure that the end result is exactly what you had imagined.
In addition to the planning session, there is the time I spend on scouting a location for your unique sitting, as well as the time of the actual photo shoot, the editing process, and the proofing session.
The proofing session is the last time we meet. I bring along a DVD slide show of all your edited images set to beautiful music. (You will need Kleenex ladies!). We go through your edited images one at a time and I help you decide on wall hangings, canvas portraits as well as design a package for your needs.
At this session I bring samples of all the products you may purchase- this really helps clients see what a 20x30 canvas would like on your mantel as they discover it's not as huge as it sounds!
After your proofing session all your edited images will be uploaded to a password protected online gallery. This is for your family and friend's enjoyment and also allows family to order online if they so choose.
As you can see, custom portraiture is time consuming and requires plenty of time to plan. So long story short, yes I do book quickly as my time is limited.
