I want to give you the best product possible, and in my mind that includes letting you in on all the little things you can expect so that you're feeling 100% ready to jump in with me. I'm a bit of a visionary, and I don't mean that in the stuffy "I'm so artsy that no one will ever understand my work" kind of way. I mean that I like to pre-visualize as much of my work as I can. It allows me to be completely present during each session and keeps me from forgetting fantastic ideas that I've had pop into my head (or into my dreams...lol, it's happened) leading up to your session.
Which is why the questionnaire that I send out a few weeks before your session is so vital for me, these questions are such a great way for me to understand you, your people and your needs well before we're thrust into the thick of photographing.
Throughout our session together you'll most likely see a few things - me checking my notebook as we're shooting to be sure that I'm not missing out on any brilliant ideas, and the occasional session break to load up more film.
Because I am a hybrid photographer I shoot both film and digital, I find that they both come in very handy at different moments throughout the session so I don't really want to be found without either one. Because I shoot film, however, it means that I occasionally run out of film to shoot. Each roll of film has 16 images I'm able to make before it winds itself up and I have to reload it. But I've found that the time it takes to reload turns into a freaking awesome pause button, because who doesn't love a ten minute break in the middle of a session to breath, drink some water, let the kids run etc. We get to chat a teensy bit as I load a few more rolls and then we're up and running once again.
You can usually expect your image gallery about two weeks after we shoot (it's worth the wait I promise) and then you'll receive a link and you can download and go crazy printing all of your images poster size and plastering them all over your walls or website.
