FALL PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Interested in booking a Fall portrait shoot? Here’s some helpful info. and what to expect!

After years of dreaming of offering a more full-service experience with framed prints, gallery walls and photo albums to clients, I finally am. Because of this, I'm taking on less clients this fall and focusing on delivering more quality over quantity.

INQUIRE & BOOK

After you fill out my contact form, I’ll send you my info packet for you to review. I’m booking portrait shoots Tuesdays, Thursdays and some Saturdays when available. The most ideal time of day for outdoor portrait shoots is a couple hours before sunset. Photo shoots are on-location and up to an hour long. I have a list of location ideas in my info. packet if you need some inspiration.

Once we decide on the date, I’ll send you an invoice to reserve your time with me and send you a questionnaire to get to know your family and your goal for your photo session. From the beginning, it’s helpful to visualize if you’re wanting a gallery wall of photos or a photo album so I can shoot with that in mind.

ORDERING MEETING

After your shoot is completed and photos are finished, I’ll reach out to you to schedule your photo premiere and ordering meeting. I can either come to your home with my laptop for this meeting, or you can come to the co-working house where I work in Germantown. During this meeting, I’ll show you a slideshow of all of the images and I’ll have sample products for you to see. All orders for printed products and digital photos are placed during the meeting and I’m here to help guide you through the process.

GALLERY WALLS

Is there an empty wall in your home that you’re looking to personalize and add some life to? I will have a Gallery Wall mock-up design for you to see. We can go through the options together and customize to fit your space and style. If you order three or more framed prints, I offer complimentary installation! Here’s an example below of a gallery wall I designed for a client.

Below is the finished installation in a hallway in her home between her son’s and daughter’s rooms. You can see this gallery wall right when you walk in the front door and it makes such a statement.

Below is another example of a gallery wall from a family photo session. This client knew going into the session that she wanted a gallery wall in her office, which you can see from the front door of their home. It was a huge, empty wall, that is now thoughtfully designed with photos of her family of four.

HEIRLOOM ALBUMS

If you’d like have a series of photos that tell a narrative, photo albums are a great option. There are matching linen or walnut preservation boxes that allow you to display them on your coffee table but also keep them protected. Your heirloom album can consist of photos from one photo shoot or multiple if you’re doing a Baby’s First Year package. We have a photo album from our wedding and I do an updated family album every two years. I love being able to look back at how we’ve grown, and so does my little one.

If you can’t tell, I’m passionate about getting photos off of our screens, into your hands and on your walls for you to enjoy on a daily basis and for years to come. If you’d like to book your own portrait session, fill out the contact form and I’d love to hear more about you and your family.

Warmly,

Rachel
