~Session Time~ PLEASE arrive a little bit before your appointment time, if you arrive after your start time, you may lose some shooting time if I have another session or need travel time to the next session.
During the photo session, we will work together to create great poses in some interesting areas but it's best to just relax. I try not to place people in awkward positions, I would rather you look relaxed and easily interact with whoever is in the photos with you. I will take some candid shots as we go since I think some of the best images come from the candid shots. If you have any ideas or anything in particular you would like, please let us know as we go. Be patient with your children, we will catch the smiles eventually. I have kids and truly understand all different temperaments, just relax and make yourself comfortable. Let's have fun!

~Sneak Peeks~ After the session, we will upload the images to our computer, and then we will pick a couple of our favorite shots to edit and place on the Charmed Photography Facebook page for a sneak peek of your session. Please feel free to tag yourself, or share the image on your wall. Some sessions will be posted on the Blog after all the editing is completed, but not all.
If your session is posted on the blog, a link will be posted on the Charmed Facebook Page.
~Editing~ We would love to get everything back as soon as possible, but with high demand for pictures it may take up to 3 weeks for your pictures to be ready (it could take up to 12 wks for large special events i.e. weddings) All the images are sifted through and we select the best ones to edit and then each of those are checked for quality, color, composition, some will be cropped and any touchups will be done. Even though you will hear a lot of snapping from the camera, we will only edit one or two of the best images from each pose, and each location. With a large group, or groups with children, sometimes it takes 5 snaps of the camera to get the one that has everyone looking at the camera with their eyes open....and hopefully we caught all smiles. Not all of our shots require all smiles, however when someone in your group is not happy to be having their pictures taken, you can usually tell in the finished product and it does cut down on the amount of images we end up with. So...it helps to bribe them LOL
~Your Gallery~ All of your edited pictures will be placed in an online Gallery, we do not give unedited images to clients ever. Your Gallery Link will be sent to you by shootproof.com You will receive your personal print release via email for use with ordering prints. and get as many copies of each picture as you like. Your Gallery will be high resolution, edited to 4x6 sized images unless otherwise indicated. You can download all of the images with one click of a button, and the images will download into a zip file and save onto your computer for you to keep. Some collages and specialty items may be created for your Gallery, however you are not limited to just these collages. You can order other collages or specialty items for a small fee, with any pictures that you pick out.
~Printing~ I recommend York Photo Lab online for all your print products, they have beautiful prints in matte, glossy, pearl or metallic finishes at affordable prices. Always check the "Special Offers" link at the top to see what discounts you can get. http://www.yorkphoto.com/
