Pre Shoot Consultations

pre shoot consultaions

Have you ever wondered what the big deal is with complimentary pre-shoot consultations?  I thought, I'd shed a bit of light based on my experience. 

In today's busy world we tend to jump into doing things we don't have much knowledge about. I know it from my own experience... I find services I need, and I just want brief information on basics, especially pricing, so I can make my decision quickly. I’ve noticed lately that often times when I rush through the process, I end up with slight disappointment, because I didn't take the time to expand my knowledge and the bits of information I received didn't always give me a bigger picture. 

Booking and preparing for a session can be a bit of a process and I strongly believe it should be. You don’t just decide to have your pictures taken, simply because you want to have pictures.  Pictures always come with purpose.  And since it’s your money you are investing, you might as well take advantage of all complimentary services.

First thing to understand is that consultation is NOT the same as booking a session. There is no commitment and you can walk away anytime.  This is when you learn the details about services, pricing, product and decide if we are a good fit for each other.  This is also when we discuss your needs and vision. for your portraits. 

Consultations help me to learn about who you are and what you are looking for, so that I can design the session you desire. They help me to prepare for your shoot ahead of time, especially if you have specific requests. For instance, if it’s a portrait session with the add-on of a couple of boudoir shots, it might require me to prep some props in advance to create desired look. If there is a headpiece you particularly like, I need to make sure it’s in a good shape to use or create a new one. This is all time consuming, and to make the photo shoot a fun, light and flawless experience, I prepare them ahead of time.  

It is completely reasonable that this extra time to meet is not always an option in today’s world with our busy schedules. Therefore, I’m always happy to schedule a phone consultation.

So to summarize, take advantage of complimentary services; if there is no obligation to book, you have nothing to loose, and a lot to gain!  So give me a call or shoot me an email, and let's chat about how YOU would like to be photographed!
