WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE BOOK A SESSION?
The entire portrait process takes place in three different meetings with Stefanie The Pre-Session Consultation, your Session and your Ordering Appointment.
THE PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION
A pre-session consultation is held before all sessions to discuss your vision with regards to poses, clothing and location options. This consultation can be held in person or over the phone. This consult helps facilitate a better portrait session by discussing your expectations and desires in advance. We’ll discuss your goals and personal style, so that we can create a session that complements YOU.
SESSIONS AT THE STUDIO OR ON-LOCATION
Studio sessions take place in the private, warm & airy space with beautiful natural light in Upton MA. The session fee includes Stefanie’s time and talent along with backdrops and clothing changes. I work with controlled studio lighting as well as natural light and a multitude of props and set designs. The studio offers a fun and relaxed environment where we create a look that is timeless and sophisticated no matter what the weather.
I take a relaxed approach to photographing which puts everyone more at ease and makes it fun. Breaks for feedings, changing, having a snack or just to regroup is welcomed and expected. I typically book one session a day so the experience never feels rushed.
When the weather is warmer, let’s take it outside! Sessions in a scenic New England spot makes for some amazing and unique images, especially if the location is special to you. So consider carefully where you’d like to have your session, or I can recommend a spot for you.
THE ORDERING APPOINTMENT
This is where the fun finishes! The Viewing & Ordering Appointment takes place within two weeks after your session. Your images are shown in a slideshow on a 50” television. Stefanie will help you sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your decor. She’ll show you actual size and pair images together for a stunning album or wall gallery.
Orders are fulfilled within two weeks and can be picked up at the studio or drop-shipped directly to you. Payment in full is required for order fulfillment. Payment plans are available upon request.
