Sessions are generally booked for early morning or late afternoon. When the sun is lower, it gives a nice warm glow. When it's high noon, there's a lot of squinting and harsh shadows and it makes for unattractive portraits.
Think about the look you are going for. Do you want to sit by the river and surround yourself with cottonwoods, open meadows, etc.? Or maybe you have a favorite park or spot you think is picturesque. At your high school? State Park? A pumpkin patch or cornfield? Where did he propose? Is there a favorite place you like to visit? An activity like hiking in the hills? Do you like to go boating or rafting at the lake or down the river? We can also do more of an urban feel with brick and a downtown sort of look. I'm up for whatever you have in mind and I travel well! Our time together will fun and relaxed. I'll give you direction but I want you to be natural, not overly posed.
Get close. Then get a little closer.
Sessions last around 2 or more hours at your location(s) of your choice. Since I do not book back to back sessions, I prefer not to put a time limit on your session. Although we usually have enough portraits after about 3 hours! I guarantee you will have at least 50-100 portraits to choose from. Your portraits take about a week to 10 days to prepare after your session and I will provide a "sneak peek" on social media to share with friends and family if desired.
A password protected proofing gallery is provided for you to choose your final products and to share with friends and family. Products include a USB drive of your portraits from the session professionally edited with a print release, prints, canvas, metal, etc.
If you are in need of a business portrait, be it formal or environmental, I can come to you with a professional backdrop and lighting. These usually take about 1 hour and you will recieve your proofs in a password protected online gallery.
If you are ready to book a session to create artful and thoughtful images, I've got a spot on my calendar just for you.
