What does the Custom Photography Experience looks like?

I strive to offer my clients more than just a simple photo session - I offer a full custom photography experience  and create beautiful images for you that you will enjoy forever!

Custom photography is about art, professionalism and client service. You and I will discuss exactly what you want out of your portraits, if you have special wishes and answer any questions you might have. Are you nervous about what to wear? Are you not sure about the best location for your shoot? Are you unsure on how to pose? These are some of the things we will discuss and answer before your session, to help put you at ease about any concerns you might have. You will also receive my Welcome Guide that includes a 'What To Wear' section along with helpful tips to get the most out of your shoot and so much more. 

Each session includes:

- The photo session itself, along with my time and professional photography skills

- The welcome guide with styling tips, to help you figure out what to wear

- Designer maternity dresses to wear at no extra charge

- Props for the session, to help with seated poses or to change the look of your photos 

- The option to change outfits in a private tent to create different looks for your photos 

- An online proof gallery where you can choose your final images 

Your Digital Collection includes: 

- Professional hand editing in Photoshop to make the images look even more stunning, enhancing colors, retouching to remove                 blemishes and objects and other things to achieve the high quality look you see in my portfolio

- High resolution digital images, so you can print you images any size and as often as you like

- A private and password protected online gallery with your edited images

- A print release that ensures that you can print your images anywhere and as often as you like

- The option to purchase prints through me

We will go to great locations and you will enjoy your session. We will have many different backgrounds and I will coach you through poses that feel natural. We will also take candid pictures and silly ones. And, I encourage you to change your look! Mix it up with some new colors or a quick change of your hair! I always have a small changing tent with me which is private, comfortable and easy to change in. I also bring props like a bench to sit on or a blanket, stuffed animals for kids, hats, flower headbands, dresses for maternity sessions, books, baby shoes and more. I'll spend time with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. 

After our session, I will upload all the images we took. I will look through every single one to make sure they meet the highest standards. After selecting all the good ones I will retouch them and fully edit 1-2 pictures so you can see how they will look like after getting fully retouched in Photoshop. You will get an online proof gallery a few days after your session with all the images to select your favorite ones. 

After you have chosen your final pictures, I will start editing them in Photoshop. I take pride in paying attention to details, so every single image gets hand edited. I will remove blemishes, fly-away hair, people in the background, and other objects that don't look good in your images. I will edit some smaller things like enhancing the eyes and all the colors and adjusting the brightness etc. so your images will look stunning.

8 to 9 business days after you have selected your favorites you will get your own private password protected online gallery with all your beautiful images. From that gallery, you can view, download, and share your images. If you decide to order prints, you can also do that through the gallery.
