Step 1: Schedule free consultation
Step 2: Book your session
Call the studio at 443-900-5170 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and second choice for your session date and the best number to reach you for your pre-session consultation. Sessions are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at my studio in Woodbine, Maryland from 10:00am- 2:00pm. To reserve your date, a signed contract and your $500 deposit is due at booking. Your deposit includes a $150 print credit to be applied towards the cost of your order at your reveal along with the session fee for your pre-session consultation, professional makeup application, the session itself, the retouching time and your in-person session reveal, when I show you your final gallery of images and together we design the products in your chosen collection. If you choose to reschedule your session within less than 24 hours notice before your session for any reason other than sickness or weather, a $150 rescheduling fee will be charged.
Step 3: Pre-session consultation
Together we will discuss your vision for your session, discuss outfit choices and how you’d like to use your final images.
Step 4: The session itself
Sessions start at 10:00am which is when your makeup will be applied by our makeup artist. You should plan to arrive with a clean face, with your hair already styled or if you’d like to add hair styling, let me know at booking and I will arrange for a hair stylist to come for an additional cost and your session would start earlier.
Step 5: Timing of session
Make sure to arrive promptly at 10:00am as we will not be able to extend your session for late arrivals. Makeup application takes 45 minutes and then we will start the shoot at 10:45am and will be finished shooting by 12:15pm. I will then send you out to grab some lunch while I stay at the studio to begin editing your images. You will return to the studio at 1:00 for your session reveal and together we will choose your favorite images and build your collection. You can expect to leave my studio by 2:30pm at the latest.
Step 6: The Session Reveal
I offer same day session reveals so you will return to the studio after lunch the day of your shoot to view a slide show of your loosely edited images (I will fully edit a few of each set so you can see how the final edits would look). We will walk through each image together slowly and choose the ones to include in your collection. This is also when you can choose which images you are ok with me sharing and if you would not like any of them shared, that is an option too on our model release form.
Step 7: Delivery of products
Approximately 4 weeks after your Session Reveal, I will contact you to let you know that your products have arrived and are available for pick up. If you’d prefer to have them shipped directly to you, you can do that for an additional cost.
Step 8: Share!
Sharing your photos with your spouse and friends is part of the fun and if you purchase a collection, a phone app is included for easy sharing! For each friend you refer who books a full session with me, you will receive your choice of a facial or a $50 Visa gift card!
