Are you thinking about booking a session but wondering how the whole process works? Then this information is for you… Continue reading to find out what happens before, during and after your Romance or Boudoir session.
Pre-Session: Once you decide to book a session, have a chat with me to discuss it. We will cover the style you would like, the types of images you are after and lots of other, important aspects. You will choose your preferred session type and we will schedule your shoot. You will also pay a deposit (deducted from the cost of your session) and we will both sign a service contract.
Next It’s time to brainstorm. We will swap ideas to come up with a plan (a shared Pinterest board is great!) We will talk about hair, make-up, wardrobe, styling, props, posing and more.
Day of the Session: You will be looking and feeling your best. For women, your hair and make-up should be professionally done. (If you don’t have an artist that you prefer, I can put you in touch with local make-up artists.) We will meet up, you can show me your outfits and then we will get started with the shoot.
This is when the magic happens! I will guide you through the process, you don’t need to be a model, be yourself! We will start with comfortable, relaxed poses and then work our way through the other poses and outfits in order to create the most amazing images for you.
Post-Session: Within 48 hours I will send you a sneak peak of my favourite, edited photos from the shoot (via Facebook messenger or email, in low resolution).
I will then undertake basic editing on the rest of your images (cropping, straightening, tone and lighting adjustments etc.) You will be able to view proof sheets of your images and pick your favourites. If your package includes art mounts or large prints etc., you select which images to use.
Your privacy is very important to me. I will ask you to complete a model release form and for each proof image, you select the privacy options you prefer. Depending on your preferences, I may create a small album of images to share on my business Facebook page or Website. These images will be approved by you prior to uploading and you will not be tagged in them (unless you want to be.)
I will then retouch and finalise your selected images. Please communicate any specific editing requests that you may have. Once you are happy with the appearance of your finalised images and your invoice has been paid in full, I will order your print products.
Once they have arrived, you can come and collect your package. (Postage is available for an additional fee.) I am confident that you will love your images. If you have any concerns with anything at all, please notify me in writing within 14 days. If you decide you would like to order extra images or products, just let me know and I can make it happen for you.
I appreciate your support, so if you leave feedback for me on my Facebook page, as a repeat customer, you will receive a 10% discount on any future sessions.
