ABOUT THE SESSION
We'll be taking photos and evaluating them together as we go. Inspecting the images in this manner allows us to identify their viability for your use. As a result, we'll be able to modify the session's emphasis to account for anything else we think you could benefit from along the way.
At the end of the session, we’ll sit down and review each shot from the entire shoot individually. After discarding the obvious shots that you won’t need we’ll hone in on the ones you’ll end up keeping. Throughout this process, we’ll be narrowing down your selection so you only leave with the best of the best. We consult our clients on things like expression, what can and can’t be done in the retouch, as well as making sure you have a nice range of shots to utilize from your shoot. There is variety for you from the session. By the end, you’ll determine the images that you are going to purchase and know they really are the cream of the crop. They will go off to the retoucher and be delivered to you a week later.
Feel free to bring a range of different options for clothing. The #1 rule for us is that you have to love it! If you don’t feel comfortable in it, you most likely won’t shoot well while wearing it. We suggest you bring a range of different cuts, colors, and necklines. For our corporate clients, we like the men to have a variety of jacket/shirt/tie combos and for the women some options of blouse/dress/jacket combos. Keeping jewelry to a minimum is key, studs or small earrings work and simple necklaces, anything hanging or chunky will usually draw too much attention to itself. If you wear glasses and have multiple pairs, then we’d appreciate you bringing them along in order to ascertain their glare factor. If you have any doubt about whether something will work or not just bring it. Layers are fantastic for the actors and no need to be seasonal; everything from t-shirts and tank tops to sweaters and light jackets can work. Have some fun with this, if you feel your wardrobe is missing something then go shopping and we’ll keep the tags on it in case you’d like to return the items after the shoot. We have a steamer in the studio, so we’ll be able to easily sort out any wrinkling for you.
