I’ve mentioned on my website and on FB that a Full Service Photographer is who I am and what I provide. I figured I would use this blog post to explain in a little more detail about what a full service photographer is all about!
The first step is contacting me. We will talk about what you’ve got in mind as far as your session goes and what products you may be thinking about (if you don’t know either yet, don’t worry, we will work it out). I know most of you like what your friends have posted and know you want yours to be similar but a little different too. Everyone’s session WILL be different because your personality is what will make your’s unique. If everything sounds good so far, we make a date for me to come out to your home. Also, I will send you a questionnaire that will give me an idea of who you are and little about your story.
The next step will be for me to come to your home (or wherever you’d like to meet). We will get to know each other a little better and make sure we are a good fit. I will also bring samples of everything I offer so you and your parents can see and feel first hand what the quality and look will be for your artwork. We will start planning your experience by brainstorming what you have in mind and build from there. Brainstorming is super fun. The imagination has no limit!
If we are two peas in a pod, all you have to do is book your session and pay the retainer fee! We will be in constant contact creating your session. Cierra, your personal stylist, will help you create your look! Her boutique is in Harrison, OH. She will show you outfits she’s made or she can create a one-of-a-kind outfit or if you prefer your own clothing, she can raid your closet! If her schedule allows, she may be able to go shopping with you!
The day of your session will, of course, be fun! I know you’ll be nervous and that’s perfectly ok and normal. I am always a little jittery too because I’m so excited. We won’t just jump right into the photoshoot, we need to kinda warm up! Let me know any questions or concerns before we start. I want you to love this! No question is too weird or stupid! We will start off by doing some simple poses so I can test and get my exposures and get everything set up and ready to go. If, at any time during your session an idea pops in your head…TELL ME! I am totally up for anything. It may work, it may not, but, it’ll still be a fun! That’s what it’s all about, right?! Your session will be an editorial experience; where we’ll create amazing images that will tell your story. You are free to be YOU!
After we’re finished, we will make another date for me to come out after I’ve got the proofs to help you and your family choose your favorites and to also help you choose the artwork that’s best. *PLEASE HAVE ALL DECISION MAKERS AT THIS APPOINTMENT* This will be the day you place and pay for your order! This makes the process go so much easier and quicker. In about two hours (or less), we will be finished! THAT’S IT! Then, all you have to do is wait a little while longer (depending on the artwork chosen) for everything to come in! As soon as I’ve got everything, I will call and figure out the best day to stop by with your artwork!!!
As a Full Service Photographer, all artwork offered is as easy as hanging it up! From metals to canvases to acrylics to framed prints…EVERYTHING is ready to hang. You do not need to go out and get anything! Hanging hardware is included with the metals, canvases, and acrylics. Well, you will have to have a hammer and nails…sorry. 😉
