Fall Photo Session
What to Expect & Session tips:
Thank you so much for booking a Fall photo session with us!
With us you can expect a fun and relaxed photo session. During your session we will get as many shots as we can. We will start off with posed portraits of the family as a group, each child, etc. We will also work in a few candids as well. You can expect to have many images to choose from in your preview gallery. If you have any special requests for poses or groupings, be sure to let me know ahead of time. Also, if you are trying to fit photos into a specific frame size or orientation, let me know ahead of time so that I can make sure we try to get those shots for you.
If you need ideas on what to wear or how to plan group outfits, I have some great ideas on our Pinterest page. Please feel free to take a look and follow us too! Things to stay away from are neons, clothing with cartoon characters on them and everyone in all white shirts. Some white is totally ok but it tends to be very reflective of the grass and trees if everyone has it on and can cast a green hue over your photos. Feel free to send me a message or email if you need help or ideas on outfits. I am more than happy to assist you in picking out your outfits.
Payment- A non-refundable retainer fee is to be paid within 48 hours of booking your session and the remaining balance is due the day of your session. There is a link to pay your retainer fee by PayPal at the bottom of this email but if you prefer to pay by Venmo, you can send your payment to: @kristina-Stotler - last four digits of my phone number are 8838. Remaining balances can be paid by cash, Venmo or PayPal.
The day of your session, we ask that you arrive a few minutes early to get everyone ready for pictures. That will give you time to find us. It's always a good idea to wipe faces, noses, etc.
Please do not come to your session if you or anyone in your family has shown any signs of illness, fever, cough, etc. If you cancel ahead of time, we will reschedule. If you arrive at your session and anyone shows signs of any illness we will cancel the session on the spot and you will forfeit your retainer fee and the remaining session balance. Rescheduling will be considered but you will be expected to pay in full for another session.
Thank you for your understanding! We promise to do our best to ensure everyone's health and safety.
I will send out a confirmation/reminder email a few days before your session. Please be sure to respond that you will or will not be able to attend. The day of the session, we will scope out the best spot for photos and I will email you info on how to find us. We try to make it very easy to locate us but sometimes a short walk is required. If you bring strollers, coats, etc, we will be sure to keep them close to us during your session.
Your photo session will be with my husband Greg who is the photographer and myself. I am there for helping with lighting, posing, entertainment, etc.
Within 1 or 2 days of your session, I will post one Sneak Peek image. You can share this image, tag people, etc. If you do not want anything posted on social media, that is totally fine. It is optional.
About 5-7 days after your session, you will receive a gallery of proof images. I will add a few edited images in your gallery so that you can get an idea of what a final product will look like but for the most part, the images will be unedited.
More information regarding these galleries will be sent out with your gallery. A total of seven edited and retouched, high resolution digital picture files are included with this mini session package.
Additional edited images can be purchased for $15 each. Only the images that you choose are available for you to keep.
Once you make your selections, I will then edit them and send you back a finalized galley within 2-3 weeks. I try to aim for 2 weeks because I know how excited our clients get but sometimes I need that extra week.
You will also receive a personal photo print release so that you can have prints made or you can also purchase prints from us. We use high quality, professional photo labs only available to professional photographers. I will provide you with a promo code to use so that you get a discount on any prints you order from us.
The links to your contract, payment area and super quick questionnaire are below. Please fill those both out and pay your invoice for the retainer fee and you are all set!
Anything else you need, please let me know!
We look forward to seeing you!
