A few words about what will happen before, during and after the shoot…
BEFORE THE SHOOT:
We will book a photo shoot day and time, and I will be in touch with you on the phone to talk about what it is you desire and the vision you have, as well as answer any questions you may have. This conversation will help determine where we shoot (locations typically in the La Cote area – between Versoix and Morges), the “must have” shots, and will help answer the “what should we wear” question. If you desire, we will also book a makeup and/or hair styling time to be done at my studio right before your session.
I will work with you in choosing from one of my locations, one that will best suit who you are and the images you wish to capture. I have carefully selected beautiful outdoor locations, paying close attention to the backgrounds and the light found there at the best time of day, in order to produce beautiful, luminous images. We can also make use of my indoor studio for fresh, simple, modern portraits. Taking photos is a significant investment, and I want to ensure that your final products reflect your goals.
A session fee deposit payment will be required prior at the time of booking.
DURING THE SHOOT:
We will take our time and make it enjoyable for everyone! It will not be rushed and time will be allowed for your children to become comfortable and for any breaks needed. I will provide direction as to the flow of the shoot, so you can relax and enjoy being with your family. In fact, the more relaxed and the more fun you have, the more relaxed and animated your kids will be! I will suggest some more “posed” shots, but will also give time for you and your children to play and be yourselves, allowing for genuine expressions and unique personalities to shine through. Tickling, tossing kids up in the air, twirling, singing, playing with leaves and having fun as a family will be highly encouraged!
AFTER THE SHOOT:
Within three weeks after the session, a private online viewing gallery and shopping cart will be ready for you to choose the images you want to keep. The gallery will be up for seven days. From the online proofs in the gallery, you will be able to add to the shopping cart the photos included in your chosen digital collection, plus any extra individual photos.
My photography packages must include one session fee and one digital collection (a group of discounted photos – 5, 10, or the whole gallery). Additional individual digital photos may be added after that for CHF 50.- each.
Once the order has been paid, your USB of images will be shipped to you within one week. Because I shoot in a format that preserves all the pixels in your pictures, the images require in-computer processing, editing and formatting (the equivalent of the “dark room”). The results are beautiful images full of color and contrast.
The fine print: All images are copyrighted, and it is illegal to save or print them from your proofing gallery, my website, or any social media.
