How does a photo session work? 

     

I thrive to provide customized experience for each client. There are no cookie cutter photos here. I would like to try my best to know each client and create candid family pictures  to capture their true personalities. Here is how it works:

  1. You were referred by a friend or stumbled upon my website and liked my style. After reading the information on my website, you still have some questions, contact me!

  2. You have decided to book a session! Yay! You can book online or contact me.

  3. You will receive a portrait session contract, which covers details of my service, cancellation policy, model release, liability and copy right information.  Please sign and submit the agreement. 

  4. You will receive a portrait questionnaire via email shortly after booking your session and signing the contract. This short form will help me to better know your family members and your vision / expectations of the upcoming session.

  5. We will schedule a phone consultation 1-2 weeks prior to your session to further discuss details, such as choice of outfits, tips to get kids to cooperate and to answer any other questions you might have. 

  6. Your portrait session day!! Dress up, relax, and have fun! I suggest to arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than your scheduled time to allow everyone to warm up and settle in. 

  7. Within one week of your session, you will receive a link to a password protected private online gallery to preview your photos. All online proofs are edited with basic adjustment. You could choose the final images, specify the size you want to print if other than 5x7. Additional charges apply if you would like to choose more images than your package includes or larger size prints. 

  8. All selected final images will be further digitally enhanced. You will receive your final high resolution digital images along with prints from pro photo lab within 2 weeks. I strongly believe in physical prints. A portrait session is not complete until you hold those beautiful prints in hands, frame them, and hang them on the wall! That's why I include prints in all my packages. 

  9. Frame your pictures and enjoy them for the many many years to come. And hope to see you and your family again!
