Sessions are generally booked for early morning or late afternoon. When the sun is lower, it gives a nice warm glow. Trust me, when it's high noon, you will be squinting and the harsh shadows will make for unattractive portraits.
Think about the look you are going for. Do you want to sit by the river and surround yourself with cottonwoods and wide open meadows. Or maybe you have a favorite park or area you think is picturesque. Maybe at your high school? State Park? A pumpkin patch or cornfield? Where did he propose? Is there a favorite place you like to visit? An activity like hiking in the hills? Do you like to go boating or rafting at the lake or down the river? How about an urban feel with brick and downtown buildings. I'm up for whatever you have in mind and I travel well!
Our time together will fun and relaxed. I will give you direction but I want you to be natural, not overly posed.
Get close. Then get a little closer.
Sessions normally take around 2 hours at your location(s) of your choice. Since I do not book back to back sessions, I prefer not to put a time limit on your session. Although we usually have enough portraits after about 3 hours! I guarantee you will have at least 50-100 portraits to choose from. Your portraits take about a week to 10 days to prepare after your session and I will provide a "sneak peek" on social media to share with friends and family if desired.
A password protected proofing gallery is provided for you to choose your final products and to share with friends and family. Products can include a USB drive of your portraits from the session professionally edited with a print release, fine art prints, portraits on canvas, metal, or wood.
If you are in need of a business portrait, be it formal or environmental, I can come to you with a professional backdrop and lighting. These usually take about 1 hour and you will recieve your proofs in a password protected online gallery.
If you are ready to book a session to create artful and thoughtful images, I've got a spot on my calendar just for you.
Fill out the contact form below and I will send a pricing guide for your portrait session. We can also have a chat over the phone or meet for tea and discuss in more detail.
I will work diligently with you through booking your session and will happily do an in-home consultation to help you decide on the best products to match your personality and home decor.
I look forward to hearing from you!
