Here’s how it works, step by step…
1. The Pre-Planning.
The pre-planning process is when we discuss your hopes and desires for a successful portrait session. Together, we determine what’s most important to you and how we can best match your expectations. The pre-planning dialogue with Bobbie is simple to do and may take place over the phone, or in person with a scheduled appointment at the studio.
2. The Session.
On the day of your portrait session, we are ready to begin when you arrive. Most portrait sessions last for approximately one hour (longer for newborn sessions) and yet we set aside a full hour and a half so that we won’t feel rushed. Your session is designed to be fun and relaxing — since we get the best expressions that way.
3. The Ordering Appointment.
One week following your portrait session, we invite you back into the studio for your scheduled ordering appointment. This is when we present you with the images from your session. It is an interactive process to guide you in selecting your favorite images and placing your order. We encourage all decision-makers to be present for the ordering appointment. Typically we recommend allowing an hour and a half for this appointment. And to help you select the proper size portrait to hang on your wall, see our guide to visualizing artwork on your walls.
4. Your Order Pick Up.
The most exciting time is when you get to take home your portraits and enjoy them. When your order is complete, we contact you to schedule a pick up time. It’s best to know when you will be coming by the studio in order to give you our fullest attention and to assist you with getting the larger pieces to your car. We’ll even deliver your portraits to your car door if it’s easier to leave the little ones in the car seat.
