Here is what you can expect and what is included when booking a family portrait session with Heydemann Art of Photography.
An initial consultation in the comfort of your home or at my studio. We can get to know each other and discuss your expectations for a final product, be it a wall portrait, gift prints or albums. Together we will come up with creative ideas, discuss locations, lighting, wardrobe and styling. The initial consultation usually takes about 45 minutes.
Once the day and time of the shoot has been booked, I will scout out the location ahead of time to ensure it is suitable and ready for the day.
On the day of the shoot, I will arrive early and be prepared for your arrival.
I like to include a combination of candid photos (when appropriate) as well as formal groupings. The average portrait session takes approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours.
Once the images have been captured and organized, they will be presented to you at a sales and viewing session at my studio within 10 -14 days after the shoot.
The sales and viewing session is where you choose images for your wall portraits, gifts and albums. This meeting takes place at my studio where beverages and light snacks will be offered – it’s like a mini-party! Most sessions last for about an hour.
I am always available to you after the viewing. I am happy to assist you in looking at unique ways to display your portraits in your home and share with your friends and family.
