Portrait Experience (11 year +)
The "Portrait Experience" is for people who are a bit older and more self-aware because my goal is to capture their personality on a deeper level. It might be something you're doing for yourself or your child to celebrate a new phase, a confidence-boosting tween session, a portrait of a beloved family member or pretty much any memory you want to keep forever. I want to turn these moments into something you cherish every time you look at it, reminding you of that season of life. So let's start dreaming up a way to create magic!
**Hair & Makeup are included. Please choose from the following:
Lite - for tweens, teens, and lifestyle portraits - simple makeup, just a nice polishing.
Full - for teens, seniors and anyone who wants to look and feel amazing - a full look by award-winning hair & makeup artist, Erick Gerson, or a different artist by request.
1. The Consult
Our time together is more than just showing up at the same place and taking pictures; it begins with a consult where we dream big dreams and dig into the details to create a unique experience.
2. The Shoot
When we get to the day of your shoot we typically spend two hours together, sometimes more, but we don't care about the time - we care about getting you those incredible images. We don't quit until we know we have a set of images that will make you swoon!
Because I care about the details there is a stylist attending every shoot to make sure all the details are attended to. This person checks for wonky buttons, frizzy hair, lipstick or food on your teeth, etc. Their goal is to make you look polished so we can have the best shoot possible! Plan on three different locations or sets, getting a wide variety of shots.
3. The Keepsake
OPTION 1: A custom-designed 8"x8" press book with 20 of the best images from your shoot.
OPTION 2: 15 5x7 gallery mounted prints with a custom display stand
OPTION 3: 8"x8" press book + 16"x20" metal print
You get a social-media sized digital version of any images that are printed from your session which are downloadable from an online gallery which also allows you to share directly to social media.
The print products are all designed at your complimentary ordering appointment along with any other print products you might want. It is these ordering appointments that allow us to give you the attention to detail that you deserve, going over everything so there isn't all the back and forth online. We typically schedule this one to two weeks after your session and many people ask to do the ordering right after their shoot is complete. I do my best to keep print pricing down while still providing you exceptional quality. Everything I have printed is archival quality which will last 100 years and be handed down through the generations.
If you choose to, you may trade your press book for a print credit of $400 to be used on any other products you would like.
Please note that "Portrait Experience" sessions are intended to focus on a single person. If you would like to include more people we are happy to find a way to do that while still giving each person their time in the spotlight. Please inquire for a more specific quote for including more people, as this can vary significantly depending on the shoot.
Multiple person ideas: best friends shoot, siblings, cousins playing at a park
If you do not want hair and makeup included we trade it for a $50 print credit.
