What is the Process?
Step 1: The Plan
This isn't brain surgery, but I really want your images to something that wows everyone, that reflects who you are, and is something that you're proud of. I like to sit with a client in person or at least Skype them to figure out the following:
What's the concept? Do you want something traditional, or something creative like a an, urban, fashion concept. (Yes, I've even done underwater shoots)
What's the wardrobe going to be? You can decide for yourself or have us help.
Location, Location, Location.
Hair and Makeup: Depending on the package you buy we'll provide a hair and makeup person on site the day of the shoot. We'll have to figure out ahead of time what you want to do though.
This might seem like a lot, but we can usually get this all squared away in a 30 minute meeting.
Step 2: Book a Session and get ready
Once we have an idea, you'll need to put down a retainer. The $50 retainer goes towards the cost of the session. If the weather forces a reschedule, we can do that free of charge. Here are some do's and don'ts
Get a spray tan
Make a major change to your hair like chop it all off
Over think it! The shoot is going to be fun!
Get your hair done
Get your nails done
Get lots of rest
Step 3: The Shoot
The shoot itself is always a total blast. Minors will need an escort like a parent or family member. I'm not picky as to who is there, but definitely have someone come.
It's ok to be nervous. That happens all the time and I will walk you through the entire shoot. I'll give you plenty of direction and we will have fun. I know it can be scary but you'll be ok.
Can I look at the proofs? No. I will provide select edited images, but I do not give out proofs or RAW files.
Can I buy RAW files? I don't like to do this, but if you really want RAW files I do sell them for $150 for a portrait session. They are delivered in a beautiful wooden box with a set of prints.
What if I don't like my photos? This does happen. In my 6 years of photographing seniors I've had 3 clients not like their photos. In each case, I reshot their portraits for free.
Do you travel? Yes I do! Outside of Yellowstone County add $150. Outside of Montana add $250.
Do you shoot film photography? Film is back and I do both digital and film photography. I have my own darkroom. Film shoots are the same price as digital, but so much cooler :).
