Portrait sessions begin with a consultation. We want to get to know you. What you like. What you expect from your session. We also walk you through our studio policies and expectations in our contract. A deposit for your session will be due at the consultation in order to hold your session date.
Prior to your portrait session, view the What to Wear tips. Refer to your contract regarding policies and expectations. If you have questions, please contact us.
A short-time after your session, we will meet again for your portrait viewing session. Anyone involved in purchasing prints and products should plan on being at the viewing session. Photos will not be available online for viewing.
