How We Work

What to expect before, during and after your shoot

A photo shoot—whether it’s a business branding, product, engagement, wedding, newborn or family session it isn’t just about the day of. The process can start weeks or even months before and extends through a post-shoot process to finalize editing, retouching and product delivery.

We’re all about creating a truly personal, truly immersive experience for our clients—and that starts with you. Here’s a step-by-step look at the process, and the important part you play in getting the best pictures:

Before the consultation

This is definitely one of the most fun parts of the process. Check out Pinterest for inspiration on location, poses, props and general styling. Start thinking about your style and what you’re looking for in your session.

The consultation:

Ask questions, look through our portfolio and figure out what approach you’d like to see in your session and final prints. If you’ve found great inspiration in step #1, bring print outs or websites along! We’ll discuss how you intend to use the images—save the dates, invites, artwork, framing, etc.—and help you refine the message you’re looking to convey within your session.

Finalizing the details

After we determine a location we’ll confirm a date, time and, based on that information, help you finalize apparel, props and poses.

The shoot

The day is finally here! Have fun and relax and you’ll naturally take better photos!

Post Processing

We’ll color correct your images, crop, check for highlights and shadows, and do a bit of retouching.  Then we’ll post a few “best of the best” to Facebook or our blog.

The preview

We’ll schedule time post-shoot for a photo preview session and send you some specials that will be available at the time of your preview so you will know what to plan for. Some photographers skip this step and allow customers to peruse a gallery at their leisure to select their images instead. 

Final delivery

Turnaround time for products is based on the specific product you order.  Once your final prints/products are available they will be available for pick up in our studio.  Or you may opt to have us delivery them to your doorstep if that is more convenient for you.

I’d love to work with you let’s get in touch or you can book now.
