I love to get to know everyone before their shoot! Pre-planning sessions are welcome to you at no charge. It’s a fantastic way to meet in-person, show you samples, discuss ideas, chat pricing, let you ask questions, and get everything rolling! My goal is to get to know you and the direction you are wanting to take your session.
These are definitely important for breaking the ice with each other before the shoot, so the flow of the shoot goes well. The old saying holds true "those who fail to plan, plan to fail", which is why the pre-planning session is crucial to your overall experience!
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, we can also chat over the phone, or we can skype!
Choose your locations that best fit your personality and the story you are trying to tell. During the Pre-Planning session, we will talk about where you can choose to go and the outfits you choose to wear at each location! I offer a portable changing station so no worries on where to change! Want to bring your closest friend or family to the shoot to help stay relaxed, no problem! We can even include them in a few photos at your session!
Locations can be of your choosing but anything over 90 miles from the Yelm, WA may have an additional charge for travel depending on distance. Fun locations make for great images and memories! Do you have a boat? Do you Wakeboard or Waterski and want some action shots? I can do that too! Do you want to include your pet pig, horse or chicken? I can do that too! From Fun inner-city shoots to backroad country, we can plan anything to fit your personality!
After the Session
After the session you will receive a link to your personalized and password protected gallery to view images as they're completed so you can start marking your favorites! Once the full gallery is finished, we can either meet in person or via video chat and you will pick out your images and products (if you choose to upgrade to one of our packages). I value your time and each free moment you have so, after our meeting I will update the gallery with the images you chose to purchase, fully edited and retouched in High Resolution, which only takes a few clicks to download! You can also make purchases directly from your gallery!
You can now book a mini session! Your session will be 45 minutes long and you get to choose the location! Your senior is also allowed 2 outfits, so you are offered a variety of different image choices. You will receive a link to your personal gallery where you can choose your 5 images by creating a favorites page. You can even download your chosen images straight from the website! Finally, you will choose 10 prints from your selected images and your senior will receive 50 senior cards, personalized to your senior, to give out to their friends and family! Additional image and print collections are available!
Since we live in Washington and rain is constant, I also offer in-studio sessions when the weather isn't cooperating!
After a few requests to take graduation day photos, I have decided to make it an individual session or you can include it as an add on to your mini or full session price. Spaces are limited so remember to ask about adding the Graduation Day session!
I would love to hear your session ideas and talk about your needs for a successful session so send me a message with some details about your availability! Remember, this session is for your senior so make sure you get them involved! I have a fun "Getting to know you" questionnaire that I will send out so we can identify all your needs and have an easier session!
