BEGINNING WITH THE END IN MIND
We begin with the end in mind. Before we even shoot any images, we will have a pre - consultation going over exactly what kind of session you would like to achieve. We will discuss everything from family members, clothing, location, what will these be images used for, if you are using them for wall decor in your living we need to discuss color of walls and furniture so your clothing choice matches. Creating a plan and shooting for that plan results in a session that makes magic.
"So, How Do You Want To Display Your Images?"
Knowing the answer helps us create a plan for your session, shoot it in the best possible way to reach our end-goal, and show you images that thrill you to no end. So let us show you how the Portrait Process works.
So let us show you how the portrait process works.
THE Portrait process
THE PRE-CONSULTATION (OVER THE PHONE / SKYPE)
DELIVERING AMAZING PRODUCTS
First, let’s talk goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it? From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of the session, the pre-consultation answers ALL your questions and helps us get to know your family. We will coordinate how we shoot the session with what the final outcome will be. Your shoot is NOT happenstance. It is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone.
Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your home and your vision and we’ll add in our creativity to make it happen.
Shoots on locations
Shoots can be somewhat stressful for families. From wondering if the kids will behave, to agonizing over what to wear and convincing dad that it won’t be “that bad,” it may have been challenging for you in the past. Sessions with Cassie are anything but stressful. Fun-filled, happy and relaxed, Cassie doesn’t care about crazy kids! As a matter a fact, the crazier, the better for their real personality (the one you love most) will come out. In Cassie's 3 years of experience with kids, she’s seen it all and can handle anything kids throw at her. On top of that, when you work with Cassie, proper planning, a solid goal and knowing exactly what will happen, you’ll feel confident with your clothing and dad will marvel at how “easy” it really was.
Shoots take place on location. Sessions at one of Connecticut's beautiful scenic park make for some amazing and unique images, especially if the location is special to you. So consider carefully where you’d like to have your session, or we can recommend a spot for you. We focus the portrait experience around just that, an amazing experience. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and a commitment to each family’s relationship and the creation of unique art for their home.
the editing process
Once we finish up our session, I will head home and upload your gallery to my computer. I back up my sessions on two different hard drives. Your portraits are very important to me and I want to make sure they are protected. Once I back up everything, I will cull through the images choosing the best of the best. I will start to edit the images. I will post a sneak peek of your session on one of my social media sites within 24 hours of your session. The whole editing process takes about 2-3 weeks (almost always sooner).
In about 1-2 weeks we will get back together at my studio and go over your beautiful images. You will get to view each image and choose your favorite set amount. This will also be a great time to use your store credit towards any of our heirloom products or prints. To learn more about our full price list, please contact me HERE.
Once your amazing artwork comes in I will make sure everything is picture perfect and top notch. After that, I will package everything up and deliver it to your family.
