Photo Session Basics: Part 2 (The Photo Session)

It’s the big day—your photo session!

RELAX—YOU ARE WITH PROFESSIONALS

While normal to be a bit nervous, we find that as the shoot progresses you’ll be more and more comfortable in front of the camera. In our home studio we use a laptop monitor directly connected to the camera so you can view the fine results clearly as we shoot. Once you see how good you look and what poses you like most, it becomes very easy to feel natural and relax. In situations where a laptop isn’t available, you will be able to see the shots in camera.

HAIR & MAKEUP

The optional stylist(s) will be on hand before the photo session as scheduled.

SETUP & TEARDOWN TIME

Off-site photo session setup and teardown time will have been scheduled at the Consultation.

PREVIEW

Before you leave we will do a quick preview of the shots to ensure we got all the poses you hoped for.

TEST SHOTS

Expect a few test shots before we begin to check lighting and poses for best results. Then just relax and enjoy being the center of caring professional attention.

ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE

Since the details of your photo session were worked out in advance all that is left to do is enjoy the experience. Your photographer is great about explaining what he is doing and why and to allow opportunity for questions.
