WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR PORTRAIT SESSION
FREE PRE- SESSION CONSULTATION
We meet for your FREE consultation, talk on Phone, or by Email 1-2 weeks before the photo session. We focus on your personal goals and desires. This consultation is all about you, and my goal is to guide you through the process of creating something special and beautiful for you. We will browse samples of my work, brainstorm ideas, and discuss preparation tips. For a fine art session we develop and plan settings for your specific idea and concept.
Contact me for the availability and any questions. After booking the session you receive Preparation guides that help you to look your best on your session day.
PROFESSIONAL PHOTO EDITING
Each photograph will be fully professionally retouched to create a unique art piece representing your beauty and personality.
During our Pre-session consultation we discuss how far you want me to go with editing, your unique style, mood in the photographs, any concerns, and what I should focus on.
Fully guided photo sessions with multiple poses and outfits (1 -2 hours). We work on expressions, talk about your story, so you could relax and enjoy the experience.
