What to Expect
Let's talk about
what to expect when booking a session & more
Once you book a session with LMP, the fun begins! We will discuss all the details from what type of photography session you want to location. We will also talk about styling you and your family!
We'll compile all this information and send you a confirmation invoice via email. Please save the email. The email will include information such as the details of the session, how to pay, help on what to wear, and a few other tidbits of information.
FAQ to clients
1. What type of session would you like?
2. What location are you interested in?
3. When is the best time for your session?
4. Do you have any special needs or requests?
5. How many in your party?
Payment - Once you confirm your session by email/text, you are BOOKED and I've reserved your spot on my calendar. You are welcome to pay with cash, check, or credit card. I have a PayPal account and you will be invoiced with the $75 retainer fee and the final payment will be due 7 days prior to your session. Your retainer fee is non-refundable but can be used towards a future session.
Fall & Spring weekends book very quickly and are often booked several months in advance, so it is never too early to book and confirm your session so your date is reserved.
Your online gallery - All our packages include hand-edited digital files uploaded to an online gallery with unlimited printing and sharing rights. Your gallery will be available within 7 days. Sometimes you can even get your gallery back within 24-48 hours. I've been known to do that a time or two. Who doesn't love a surprise, right!
the day is here
We will meet at the selected location and at the scheduled time. I will go over any special requests or needs you may have, and then we'll get to our session!
I love to warm up my clients by having them just mingle with each other, even dance. It's about being free in our environment. I try to keep things relaxed, so we'll talk about you and your family through out the session. I like to capture the candid moments just as much as the smiling-at-the-camera moments. I will also arrange different poses, using different backgrounds. We'll walk around our location to get different perspectives. I’m happy to accommodate any fun posing ideas you have, or any props you’d like to incorporate. At the end of the session, I’ll answer any last questions and then we’re all finished!
Children - If you have young ones, feel free to bring anything that will keep them happy (e.g. snacks, juice, favorite toy, etc.).
Weather - If it is hot, you may want to bring a water bottle. For cooler weather you can bring a jacket along for in between shots, or just bring a blanket to wrap up in, I may even snap that picture!
Props - Please feel free to bring any props that you find fun.
Animals - If you bring an animal, I require an additional $25 fee so I can bring along an assistant to care for your pet while we're shooting.
Outfit Change - If you are planning a clothing change, remember that it may need to be done in the car as many locations are remote and don't have a place to change.
Rescheduling - If we happen to get rained out or if an emergency comes up, I am happy to reschedule your session as they are non-refundable.
