|What do I do? How Does This All Work??
Relax, this is a fun time and I will walk you through the whole process.
I am a full service professional photographer handling all the details from the inception to the delivery of your final prints and products. All sessions begin with a pre-session consultation. Most are done by phone, but for larger sessions like events and some senior sessions we meet at my studio. I do offer digital images with a minimum print purchase. It is very important that all my clients receive high quality prints that will last a lifetime and will be available for all generations to cherish. Technology changes, but high quality prints are never out of date.
We will decide where the session will take place and I will help you (if you need it) in determining best outfits, props, etc. Morning or late afternoons are the best time for outdoor portraits. Sessions with small children should be scheduled at a time that is best for them. Consider using personal items for props (letter jackets, piano, sporting equipment, musical instruments, etc.)
High school seniors are not required to go to a specific studio if you attend a public school. There are only a few private schools that require you to go to a specific studio for the yearbook portrait. You may go there for the yearbook portrait and then come to LaBelle Photography for a more customized session. I have the requirements needed for the local high schools and have worked with them for years to ensure the senior portrait is correct and included in the yearbook. If you would like your portrait included with the class composite (different than the yearbook), there is an additional minimal charge required by the facilitating studio (Focal Point or Prestige). This is optional for the seniors.
Most high school senior sessions begin at the studio. We will do the formal portrait for the yearbook and if desired, we can do additional studio portraits. We do have blue and grey backgrounds to meet yearbook requirements.
Within 5 days of your ordering meeting, you will receive an email with your gallery login information. This will allow you to share your images with your friends and family as well as prepare for your ordering meeting. You can select your favorites prior to our meeting or just come to the meeting and we can select your favorites together. The ordering meeting typically takes place within 30 days of your session. 50% of your print order is required at the time your order is placed with the remaining balance due upon delivery of your order. Digital images will not be delivered without full payment.
Do you want an album, but don't have any idea how to create it? No worries, I take all your favorites, create the album, let you see it, make adjustments and when you are satisfied we will have it printed.
I can't wait to meet you and spend time creating great memories and images you will cherish for a lifetime. Give me a call or shoot me an email and we can schedule your session or I can provide you with more information.
