My ultimate objective is to not only meet, but exceed my client’s expectations in taking beautiful images, and walking them through an amazing experience from beginning to end. My client’s challenge is to attempt to resist the desire to want much more than they originally anticipated. What a wonderful ‘dilemma’ to have…!
For my clients, their Family, Children, Newborn, or High-School Senior Portrait Sessions are soooo MUCH more than just having their Portraits taken….
— I begin by encouraging/recommending a Complimentary Consultation…to allow me to understand the style and type of Portraits my clients are envisioning (Traditional vs Candid/Photojournalist or a combination…along with several of my ideas); to discuss colors and styles of clothing, In-studio and/or Outdoor locations, to explore and discuss the many product options currently available to showcase/display their treasured portraits, etc, etc.)
— We then schedule the actual Portrait Session. (During the Family Portrait Session, in addition to taking images of the entire family, I include images of the kids together and separately, Mom and Dad together, pets, etc, etc.)
— Then within 10 days of their Session, I invite my clients back to my Studio Viewing Room to see their incredible images. I begin with a fun slide show; and then we move into the process of effectively narrowing down the numerous images to those that they love; and then into determining which they’d like to order. (Prior to this ‘Viewing Session’, I do ask that my clients complete a really useful ‘homework’ worksheet…to consider and write down their portrait needs/desires; and to also text or e-mail me images of their wall space(s) that may have potential Portrait opportunities. We’re able to play-around with and can design custom wall groupings…they get to see exactly what THEIR wall would/could look like with the Portraits they are considering.)
— And then a few weeks later my clients pick-up their beautiful Portraits. (I also offer Framing/Matting Services…which allows my clients to pick-up their Portraits and immediately hang them on their wall.)
Please let me walk you through this amazing experience. I look very forward to hearing from you!
