Diary of a photo shoot:
A client filled out our web form showing their interest in a family session. We set up a phone meeting where the client explained that they wanted a magazine editorial family portrait vogue style shoot, and which types of prints they were interested in. We set up an in home consultation and gave them everything they needed to design the perfect session.
When we came to their house, we talked through the details, getting the frame of a photo shoot together. We talked about what the photos were for, and what display options we have, how they wanted to use and/or display them, and what sessions and products we suggest. At the end of the consultation, they decided they needed 2 large prints for display on their family portrait wall. We found a day and time that worked for all of us, and scheduled the photo shoot.
About a week before the shoot we returned to the clients house for her wardrobe consultation, where we look at what the client has or has purchased for the shoot and discussed wardrobe. We talked over and finalized questions, ideas, logistics, and team for the day of.
Day of the shoot, the team arrives and sets up. We steam wardrobe, set out accessories and props for the day, and get the set and photography equipment needed. After, wardrobe styling and lighting tests, and on to taking the portraits. We work off the moodboards we’ve created with the clients, making sure to capture all the shots they want, and then a few we think will be good. We’re wrapped! We clean up, say our goodbyes, and head home.
The day after the shoot, we begin the fine art editing process on the images. We schedule the unveiling session, we meet at the Client’s home to go through the images and choose which ones they wants, and the canvases they decided to add on. Even though it sounds easy enough, it can be pretty difficult to make decisions on which photographs you like the best. After the unveiling session, we placed the order, and in this case, we hand delivered their prints and products!
