What to Expect - Ellie Sophia


Having portraits taken should be a fun experience.  My job is to make sure you feel comfortable and beautiful, and to capture that in the images.  One way to feel at ease is to know exactly what to expect, these steps will make sure you do. 


Step One: Decide on a Package

Take your time looking through my Brochure. At this step the only thing you need to decide is how much time you will need. Session fees are based on the type and amount of time dedicated to your photoshoot. You have time to decide what print collection you would like. This decision won't need to be made until we meet to preview your images. Have a question? Please take note of the "Frequently Asked questions" section or contact me directly. 


Step Two: Book your Photoshoot

Once you have made your decision, please contact me to book.  We will then discuss available dates, times and locations. I will email you an invoice for the appropriate retainer fee.  Once this is paid the appointment date will be saved.

Step Three: Come prepared

Expect an email from me containing a Survey/Contract to help me better serve you. This helps me come prepared.  Below are some tips to help you feel at ease and prepared.  For more tips check out my Pinterest boards. 

Step Four: Have Fun

Many families arrive to photoshoots stressed out.  It's understandable considering all it takes to get the family dressed and ready, but don't forget to have fun.  Your favorite images are going to be the ones that capture natural smiles and interactions. 


Step Five: Image Preview Meeting

At the end of your photoshoot I will ask you to book a follow up appointment within a week to preview your images. These images will have basic editing complete, and will be ready for you to narrow down to your favorites. I will also go over the collections available, as well as additional print options and answer any questions. By the time we are done you will know exactly what you are getting, and after payment is made, I will further edit and order your final collection. 

Step Six: Hand Delivered

My favorite part of my job is hand delivering your memories. As soon as I have them ready, I will contact you to arrange a time for them to be delivered. If you would like to book another photoshoot, take advantage of a 20% discount on session fees if you book by the time your images are delivered.
