Most people have professional portraits taken only once or twice in their life, so I understand that it's a big deal, and that it can be a very daunting experience.
That's why I like to hold my clients' hands every step of the way.
We'll have a pre-shoot consultation, which will include a detailed discussion about wardrobe. And then closer to the day I can give you styling advice on your clothing options.
At the shoot I won't just leave you standing there….. I talk a LOT, and give very specific instructions about where and how to stand/sit, in order to make you look your very best.
When the photos have been taken, I'll take you through the best of them, and can help you make decisions about what you would like to purchase. I can even take a photo of your wall, and show you what different layouts will actually look like on it!
I have great personal relationships with all of my suppliers and will keep you up to date on the progress of your order.
And then I will deliver your order to you personally. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing my clients photographs on display in their own homes.
