Preparing for Your Session
Choose your attire & coordinate accessories, jewelry & props. Remember to get plenty of rest the night before and check & double check that you’ve packed everything. High School Seniors, remember to check out the “preparing for your session” guide. For the little ones, remember water, an easy to eat snack and something to capture their attention.
The Day of Your Session
Allow yourself extra time, it’s always better to be early than late. Let’s have some FUN! Today is your day and we want to make sure we know any ideas or concepts you have.
Preparing for Your Ordering Session
If we are matching a previous order or specific print on the wall, please measure the image size before you come. Measure your total wall space where you’re thinking of putting images so we can choose the correct image size. If you don’t have wall space, have you looked at other options like our session book or album, multiple image cubes or a display shelf with a few 11x14’s, 8x10’s and 5x7’s? Who do you need to order prints for and what size? Do you want prints or digital files? Do you want proofs?
Viewing & Ordering Your Prints
Your images will be ready 7 to 10+ days after your session. You will come to the studio to view your gallery images and place your order, so please make sure all decision makers are present.
We will start with a slideshow set to music which will overview all of your images. Relax and Enjoy this is the fun part. Next, we will separate your “favorites” into on group and put the rest aside. We don’t delete, just separate so we can always bring things back. Finally, we will complete your order: yearbook (high school seniors), wall portrait or collection, gift prints, wallets, keepsake products and proofs.
Payment in full is appreciated. We request a payment of 50% of your remaining balance to begin processing your order. A $100 reprocessing fee will be applied if your order is not placed at your initial ordering session. We recommend you leave the little ones at home so you can focus on your beautiful images.
Online Gallery Viewing
If you have out of town family and friends who want to view and order images of their own, we offer a password protected online gallery after your ordering session with a minimum order purchase for high school seniors, an order ready to be processed, or a $200 proofing deposit. You must provide a valid email address to receive your gallery password. Click on the “client login” tab and choose your gallery. Your gallery will be available for 4 days and orders may be place directly online. There is a $100 reactivating fee to activate any expired galleries.
Picking Up Your Portraits
Your prints and products will be ready for you to pick up 4 to 6 weeks after the processing of your order. If you need any portion of your order sooner, a rush fee of 50% of your order total will be added. Payment in full is appreciated before any part of your order may leave the studio.
