What I do besides take pictures.
I treat my clients the way I want to be treated as a customer. All emails and phone calls are answered promptly. Requests and special accommodations are discussed and, where possible, are implemented. I pride myself on a speedy turn-around and quick delivery of images and products. All this and my most genuine smile, because I truly love what I do!
Before the shoot...
I like to meet with every client in a pre-session consult so we can chat about your session. This can happen over the phone, over a glass of wine, a cup of coffee, or a sweet pastry (your choice and my treat!). We’ll talk about your personal style, potential session themes, location, your family, what to wear, look at products, and just generally get to know each other a bit. It’s fun, I promise! Once we have booked your session (and your retainer is paid for) we will also schedule your in-person ordering session.
Relaxed and light hearted. The details will be specific to what we have outlined and prepared for in our pre-session meeting. All of my sessions begin and end with us chatting, especially if children are participating. I like to take my time with the wee ones at the beginning so that they can see me as someone to trust, listen to and have fun with. With newborns I take as much time as needed to allow for cuddle time, changes and feedings. The overall flow of your session will be tailored to everyone's moods of the day. If something isn't working, we move on! Pauses will be taken for snack/drink/bathroom needs as well as to review our goals of the pre-outlined session.
After the Shoot...
Immediately after your session, I upload your precious pictures to my computer, back them up to an external hard drive and an online storage space. Once your images are safely stored, I begin the editing process to bring out the very best in each and every one of your images. The next step is the In-person viewing and ordering session. This is where we come together abut 10 days later back at the studio. We’ll look at your amazing photos, you’ll ooh and ahh, you will choose your favourites and decide how best to display them. I will help you create beautiful heirloom wall galleries, albums, canvases and prints to proudly show off in your home and to share with others.
Your photography session is an investment. In the years to come styles will change and your family will grow, but your photos will still be there for you and your children and your children’s children to enjoy.
