To begin the process, we usually have our clients come into our Birmingham studio for a complimentary consultation so that you have the opportunity to meet me, see (and be comfortable with) the area that we'll be photographing you and the furniture pieces that we'll be using. We discuss wardrobe - what pieces/colors work best and why and review examples of the images/poses that we'll be creating as well as our different products and packages. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality images - from shooting to editing to final product.
When it comes time for your session, you should probably plan on about 2 hours for Beauty/Glamour and High School Senior sessions and 1 hour for Corporate Head Shot sessions. Plan an additional hour if you'd like an in-studio hair and make-up application. This service is provided for an additional fee of $150 or we are happy to provide you with a list of local professionals that we know have done beautiful work for our clients in the past. This session will allow for 2 to 3 outfits which you would bring to your session. Based on extensive experience, we take you through each pose and guide you through facial expressions and body positioning to achieve optimal results.
After the session, we will schedule an in-person image presentation for you about 2 weeks from the date of your shoot. We will carefully choose the top 30-40 images from your session and do an in-depth, magazine quality edit on each. We choose only the best images from the session and you will never see any unedited images.
Your in-person image presentation will be your opportunity to review all images, choose and purchase your product - anything from prints to beautiful wall art. Depending on what products you choose, our goal will be to have final products ready for pick-up within two weeks.
For those that are interested, we do offer a payment program (spanning 2 or 3 months depending on your needs) with products being delivered upon final payment. The session fee would be $225 and would be due the day of your shoot. If you choose the in studio hair and make-up artist, that $150 fee would also be due to the artist the day of the session.
If you have any questions at all or would like to schedule a consultation, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
