Whether you are celebrating a little one's first birthday, or on a mission to get that family photograph,
here is what you can expect during and after your ClickSmith Photography session.
Where will the session take place and how long will it last?
We can take pictures wherever there is lots of available light! Sessions last anywhere from 30-60 minutes, depending on the package your purchase.
We can shoot at one of several area parks or trails to capture natural shots and kiddos on the move. Or, we can head downtown for a more urban vibe. The call is yours! Ideally, shooting well before or after the noon hour is best to avoid harsh, overhead sun. If weather makes it impossible to carry through with our session, we can either switch locations or reschedule for another date.
What will happen during the session?
I will move quickly to get the most out of the time we have, but taking pictures should be fun (for all ages), so breaks and games are built into the session as necessary so everyone is stress-free and we can capture those authentic smiles!
I'll arrange you and yours in some poses throughout our session, but will also step back from time to time, snapping some candid "in between" moments to add to your mix of final portraits.
I make a habit of showing clients a few of the photos we're snapping on my playback screen as we go along. It's fun to be excited right alongside a client about the portraits we're creating together. I've been on the other side of the lens in a session and always appreciated the little "sneak peeks" of the portraits and could relax, knowing we were getting some great shots.
What happens after the session?
I aim to get a "sneak peek" online within 48 hours of our session together. You are more than welcome to tag yourself in these and share with family and friends! Within two weeks of our session, you will receive a link via email to an online gallery. This gallery will house the images from your session, along with variations in black and white as is fitting, retouched and ready for you to order prints or products if you wish, as well as download your images directly to your computer. If you select a package that includes an archival disc of your images, it will be delivered to you around the same time your gallery link is provided to you. Your gallery is available online for 60 days - archiving your images once you receive them is up to you.
How and when do we pay?
The package fee is due at the time of your session. You may pay with cash, check, or I can swipe your credit card on-site. Prints and products ordered directly from your online gallery may be paid for by credit card or Paypal account.
