Booking a Photo Session with Us
The First Step is to Decide the Photo Session or Package You Want
Booking a Photo Session with us is done by email. We do not do text or phone bookings. All booking more than 48 hours out require a 50% deposit. Booking a session requires our understanding of your needs for your photos. You need to decide the session and any options you want and know and understand what you are getting when you order a photography session. This all begins with finding the type of Photo Session you want and what is included.
We can photograph you in many different ways. You need to know what you want to do and you need to make sure we know. Each Look or Style can be a different type of session. So if you are doing a 3 Looks/Styles Session you could do 3 totally different types of photos. “Session Types” are listed in the drop-down menu at the top of almost every page. Business Style Portraits-Headshots, General Headshots-Portraits, Boudoir Photography, Glamour-Pinup-Centerfold Style, Fitness-Bodybuilding-Sport, Actor-Model-Portfolios. Each type has a page describing what we offer and a little about how we work, with a few photos and then links to Our Photo Portfolios and to specific Portfolio types where you can see samples of some of our photography of all different styles.
Next step is clicking on the Pricing link in the main menu. We offer sessions in both A la Carte Photography sessions and Full Photography Packages that include Makeup, Hair Styling, and Retouching. We also have a page with rates for Products and Commercial Photography. Each one has it’s own included items, options and pricing page.
Here you will find the different sessions offerings, what the cost is, what is included and the approximate time required. You can also see the different Options and Add-Ons that can be added to your shoot, such as Makeup and Hair Styling for both men and women, additional time, locations fees, and copyrights.
Submit the Photoshoot Booking Information form
The second step in booking a Photo session with us is to submit our Photoshoot Booking Information form. Tell us the session or package you would like, date(s) and time(s) you are available for the shoot,if you will want Makeup and Hair, and as much of the other information as possible. You can ask any questions you might have or give us any information about what you want. It is also always helpful if you can send us a few photos of yourself and the type of shots you want to do.
We will check our calendar for your preferred date and time
Once we receive the form we will look at our calendar and see which dates we have open and get back to with that as well as any suggestions or other information you may have requested and a total pricing quote.
Submit Booking Agreement with agreed upon date and time
If everything sounds good, you will then need to send us a Booking Agreement. The Booking Agreement is self-explanatory with agreed upon dates and times and outlines your rights and our rights. A copy will be sent to your email for your records. Once we receive your agreement we will send you a link to a Paypal Invoice to pay your deposit.
Pay your Paypal Invoice for the Session deposit with a Credit Card
The last step in Booking a Photo Session with us is to pay your deposit. Your deposit is 50% of your session and makeup fee and will reserve your date and time. We will send you a link to a Paypal Invoice outlining all of your ordered services and the prices of each. We use Paypal or Square for credit card processing. Neither requires for you to have an account. They are easy, simple and secure and do not require you giving us any credit card information. We do not take or store any credit card information on our website, servers or office computers.
Paypal and Square both send instant receipts.
Prepare for your Session
Once we have received your deposit we will send you a final email confirmation along with tips and instructions for preparing for your photography session and makeup and hair styling services.
