For new clients, I like to meet them, have a conversation over the phone, or at least have them send me a picture of themselves prior to the actual shoot so I know who I am working with. Consultation are complimentary and really help get the most of the session. This time is to discuss elements such as, what colors and which clothes will look the best in the picture.
Whether it is for a head shot or family portrait, careful planning ahead is essential to a successful session. This is also when we will talk about the lighting and how important it is if we are on location. Time of day is important not only to get good lighting, but the baby or child should also be prepared. (See how to prepare for a shoot.)
If you are scheduled for a head shot in the studio, you can bring an extra shirt/blouse or jacket.
Another important factor that is discussed is what are these pictures going to be used for?
Will you be hanging them in your home above your fireplace, on a desk at work, sending them to family as a gift, or in your child's room?
How large are these prints going to be?
Also included in the consultation, if desired, is a visit from Sally to your home to see what your colors are and where these custom prints will be displayed.
If you decide to book Sally for your photography needs, keep in mind that this is an experience your are paying for. Let us work together and make this a happy, memorable, fun, and relaxing experience for everyone!
