  1. Pre-Shoot Consultation (in-person or by phone):  We'll talk about your interests and the vision you have for your images.  If you haven't filled out a client questionnaire (link below), we'll talk through that to make sure we both have all the information we need, including information about pricing and securing your photo shoot date.    Photo Session Client Questionnaire

  2. Photo Shoot: we will meet at our prearranged location and shoot your photos. 

  3. Post Processing: I will hand-edit your images. This step may take 2-4 weeks, and depends on workload.

  4. Image Delivery: Your photos will be delivered to you in a digital gallery.  You may order professional-grade prints and products from your digital gallery, or you may download your digital images and print them at a photo lab of your choice.
