A pre-consultation is a time that we sit down to chat BEFORE the session takes place. This may be in person or over Skype / Google Hangout. I love getting to know my clients ~ it's the key to planning your Custom Portrait Experience! We will go over every detail to assure you feel comfortable and prepared for your amazing experience.
What will we talk about?
* your personality, style, and interests
* your home decor and where you might hang your portraits
* your desired feel for the session
* clothing and accessories (bring some for us to go through!)
* using all of the above, we'll plan the perfect location to pull it all together
* prepping for the session so you feel your absolute best!
* confirm makeup and/or hair appointment time
* contract review
* product Q&A for anything you may be interested in, such as albums, amazing metal prints, etc.
Why is a pre-consult important?
Because this is where your experience begins! I don't want you to show up at the session with a pile of clothes and have no idea what to expect. I want you to feel prepared and excited and ready to SHINE. We make this happen each and every time by taking time to meet with you in advance, to help you be informed and heard, molding the whole experience around who you are. This is a new experience for most clients, and I want you to feel comfortable in front of the camera. To do so, you need to feel comfortable with me and trust that we have planned everything to assure the end result is the most amazing reflection of YOU.
Your Session Day!
You'll arrive at the studio and meet our make-up artist Jen (if you've booked time with her) and our assistant / lighting guru, Mr. Jason. Hair and make-up generally takes an hour or so. Jen will play crazy music and Mr. Jason will be cracking jokes. I'll be busy getting your outfits ready with mom and getting a few behind the scenes shots for Snapchat & Insta! Since we will already have your session planned out, we will get right to shooting. Depending on the time of year (and which session you booked), we may start inside our natural light studio or head outdoors. Either way, we are gonna have some fun! And I'll post a sneak peek a day or so after your session because I know you're dying to see them!
Your Session Premiere!
This is a fun day! You will come back in to the studio about 2 weeks after your session to see your beautiful images and I will help you through the entire ordering process. I love working with our clients as you choose your favorite images for albums, canvas wall galleries and image boxes!
