What to Expect | Family, Maternity, and Newborn Photography | Albany County

My plan is to give you an extraordinary experience when you book a session with me! But you may be apprehensive about booking a session if you have not worked with me before, or any photographer for that matter! First you want to contact me either by phone, email, or the contact form. We will then set up a date and time to discuss The Pre-consult, The Session, and The In Home Viewing… Pre-Consult | This preferably would be done in person but it could also be done over the phone. During the consult we would discuss a date, time and location for the shoot. We would also discuss what to wear (what not to wear), and I’d give you an idea of how the session would run. The session fee would be due at the pre-consult and is required to book the date. At this time a contract would be signed by you and will be reviewed to make sure that both your expectations and mine are understood. It’s also good to have an idea of what you want for your end result of the session. For example are you looking to update a wall display, gift prints for family members, an album, etc…

Session | The on-location session would last for 1 to 2 hours. Usually outdoors and could be done at your home or at another outdoor location such as a park, farm, etc. The best time for family portrait sessions is early morning to late afternoon. (Note: Newborn sessions could last up to 5 hours and would be in doors at the clients home or my home, and would start in the morning.)

In Home Viewing | 4 weeks after the session we will have an In (Your) Home Viewing of a Gallery that will consist of 20 to 30 images. At this time you will need to make your decisions as to what you would like, whether that be a specific collection, or a bundle of a-la-carte items. Payment for your prints will be due at this time. So it’s important to review the Pricing List prior to the in home viewing so you have an idea, hopefully this will be determined at the Pre-Consult!!

Extra Items ~ The week of your session you will be given a 1-2 image sneak peek on Facebook (as long as model release is signed)! ~ After the In Home Viewing your session will be blogged here, so as long as a model release is signed! ~ Your purchase will be packaged and ready for you 2 weeks after the In Home Viewing!

So are you ready??? Then give me a call!!!
