There are no rules to your personal style. Wear clothes that represent you and who you are. With that said, for photography sessions outside, it's best that your attire compliments the environment you take photos in for maximum visuals. NOTE: 1) The camera picks up wrinkles so make sure your clothes are groomed & comfortable. Definitely keep this in mind when being photographed for graduation photos to steam/iron your gown before your photo session if you are providing your own gown. 2) Ladies don't forget if you are being photographed in heels to bring comfortable shoes to walk in between looks/locations and after your sessions.
Photo sessions are booked from 30 minute to 4 hour sessions. Makeup, hair, and other grooming are to be completed before the photo session begins; unless you are purchasing more session time.
No more than 1 person is allowed to accompany the client. Additional people can become a distraction and prolong the session.
Majority photo sessions are taken on location, but a studio can be rented hourly. If you have an alternate commercial indoor location available, please let me know prior to booking. If you would like for me to come to you, in-home studio options you must have a minimum of 10 ft available space to accommodate photographic setup/equipment. Your space must be pre-approved before the session.
My preference is to shoot during the mornings/late afternoons during the summer months due to Houston's hot weather. Sunlight during the winter months limits photo sessions to no later than 3pm, but outdoor night shoot are available if you choose to.
Once you have made your final selections, I edit those photos for print and however you plan to distribute them. NOTE: Editing photos include making adjustments to the actual photo (i.e. color corrections, contrast, brightness, etc...) Retouching is a more detailed process to the actual subject (i.e. skin blemish removal, fly away hair, remove background, etc.)
A link to a private photo album will be sent to you via text/email within 3-7 business days. From there, you make your final selections for editing.
