We have an initial meeting to schedule the pre-sitting consultation as well as discuss the sitting agreement and deal with the deposit (non-refundable) for the sitting. We will also discuss formal portraiture vs. environmental portraiture and your preference.
About one week before the scheduled sitting we will meet in your home to discuss clothing recommendations, and view the areas that you wish to be photographed if we are doing an environmental portrait. It is required to allow the photography to evaluate the equipment needs to provide the best possible portraits and proper lighting of the environment. At this meeting, we will also collect any remaining balance of the sitting fee.
On the day of the shoot, we will arrive at or just before the scheduled time to set up the equipment and work with the client to deal with any last-minute details.
After the shoot is complete and post shoot processes are complete, we will notify the client how to get access to the portrait proofs as well as the print ordering process.
