BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER YOUR SESSION
If you're wondering what to expect from your time with Sunshine Soul Photography, look no further! We specialize in creating a personalized experience for you and your family that's fun and meaningful. Although the goal of working together is to create wonderful images, we also strive to make the process of getting there enjoyable and memorable!
Here's how it works...
INITIAL CONSULTATION -- We like to begin every session with an initial in-person consultation so we can get to know one another, if possible. Your place, ours, or
somewhere in-between - we love to meet over a cup of tea or coffee and learn more about you and your family, your goals for the portrait session, and ideas for decorating your home. We love to talk about which package will be the best investment for you, as well as discuss possible locations. We also encourage clients to use this time for questions and ideas; and we love to show you our beautiful print products in-person to give you a feel for the final outcome of your session. If it is impossible to meet before the session, then we will have a phone conversation to discuss all of the details.
BOOKING THE DATE -- Once you've decided on the right photography session for your family, we'll go ahead and get the date booked for your photo session! In order to reserve your day, a non-refundable deposit of $150 and a signed contract are required. We'll work with your schedule to find a perfect day and time for the session!
YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION -- I believe each shoot should be fun and easy. My goal is to capture that special something that makes you YOU. Each regular session lasts between an hour and a half to two hours and you can expect lots of different poses, scenes, and actions. If kids are involved, I try to take breaks for snacks and some fun play time, which goes a long way in getting cooperation and preventing meltdowns.
IN-HOME PREMIER ORDERING SESSION -- The photos have been taken, individually retouched with great love and care, and now it's time for you to see the end result of all our hard work and planning! One of our clients' favorite parts of the entire Sunshine Soul Photography experience is getting to see their beautiful images in the comfort of their own home! I will come to your home bearing dessert of some sort (because, let's face it, everything is better with dessert). I want to meet you where you are most comfortable and I can show you your photos on your very own television so you can see them larger than life and really determine which of your photos you like the best. Or, if you're more comfortable meeting at a local Starbucks we can do that, too! At this point I'll show you a fun slideshow of your photos. We will go through all of your photos together and I can help you determine what will look great on your walls! I'll bring product samples so you can see and touch everything. I even have a preview app on the iPad so you can see exactly what your selection will look like hanging on your very own walls! At this point in time, you'll have the opportunity to choose the photographs you would like to have as prints, albums, canvas, or a variety of other handcrafted photo products we offer. We'll bring over a pricing guide and make recommendations for photo products we think would enhance your living space! This is your time to ask questions, place orders, and get excited about your images.
Once you've made your selection, I will look over any photos you select to print to ensure you receive the very best products, as well as provide any advice on options and custom design ideas. I use only the best professional printers and vendors.
I will also put your photos up in an online proofing gallery, which is password protected and can be shared with family and friends if you so desire.
Every shoot and photography package is tailored to you and your life, and my goal is to exceed your expectations.
