HOW IT WORKS

#1

GET IN CONTACT

 

  • Call, text, or email and tell me what type of photography session you are interested in booking.  

  • Mutually agree on the session date & timeframe (choices: morning, afternoon, or early evening in summer months) to pencil in on the calendar to temporarily reserve your session.  

  • Schedule and have a pre-session phone or call to discuss details and customize your session (location options, exact starting time, what to wear, how to prepare, what to expect, etc)

#2

OFFICIALLY BOOK YOUR SESSION

 

  • Electronically sign my photography agreement to officially hold your session date & time on my calendar. My photography agreement details the session process, prices, timelines, copyrights, model releases, and rescheduling options.

  • No advanced deposit is required - only your e-signature on my photography agreement. 

#3

ADVANCED PREPARATIONS

  • Review my Portrait Session Welcome Guides for ideas and details about your upcoming session:

Family Portrait Welcome Guide

Senior Portrait Welcome Guide

Headshot & Social Media Welcome Guide

  • Finalize your session location. 

  • Plan what you will wear for the session (option: text pictures if you would like feedback for what will photograph well and look coordinated as a group)

  • Touch base the day before the session to double-confirm our exact meeting location.

  • Discuss a contingency plan if the weather forecast looks questionable.

#4

SESSION DAY

 

  • Relax and trust me....it's going to be fun!

#5

IMAGE PREVIEWING GALLERY

 

  • Expect a request to pay a $250 non-refundable deposit approximately two weeks after your session

  • Receive access to your online, private, sharable previewing gallery once your non-refundable payment is received

  • Every client’s online gallery is unique, but most 60-90 minute sessions yield 100+ custom-edited images

  • Spend the next two weeks deciding which images are your favorites! 

#6

FINALIZING YOUR ORDER 

 

  • Schedule your post-session consultation to discuss placing your Collection order

  • Finalize your order before your Previewing Gallery expires: four weeks from the date your link is sent (a two-week extensions can be purchased for a $25 reposting fee). 

  • Pay the remaining balance of your Collection through your gallery’s online payment portal

  • Your gallery's payment portal accepts all major credit cards, Google Pay, or Apple Pay, or as an alternative, you can always mail a check

#7

ORDER DELIVERY

 

  • For Authentic Portrait Sessions, approximately two weeks after your remaining balance is paid, your digital images will be mailed to your street address on a flash drive.  

  • Any optional reprints ordered will be arranged for pick-up in Arlington, VA. 

  • Headshot session digital images are sent electronically through a Dropbox Folder to your email address for downloading.
