So, you’ve had your session, you got dressed up all fancy and you placated (and bribed!) the kids into smiling in front of the camera for me… what next?
This is where I go to work selecting the best of the best images out of the two-hundred or so that I’ve most likely taken during your session. These images are then ready for me to work my magic and edit in my signature style as you will have consistently seen throughout my portfolio. After editing I send your future artwork pieces off to be printed at the professional lab and await for them to land back on my doorstep in a few days.
My favourite part of your portrait process has to be sliding your beautiful prints into luxury slip-mounts ready to display on my reveal wall for your viewing session! There really is nothing quite like seeing your artwork printed in your hands, too many of us store our photos digitally and never look at them – I passionately value the importance of having your memories printed, to hold and view whenever you feel the urge to without having to turn on the computer or flick through the last few hundred photos you took on your iPhone… It is so important to me that these images are printed to accompany your digital file release which is why I love the Folio so much, it is compact, archival and it will become invaluable, holding treasured memories for your family for generations to come.
I will usually contact you the same day that I receive your prints back to find a suitable date for us all to sit down over a coffee and look at your images. I set aside a couple of hours for this appointment as I don’t want you to feel hurried into making quick decisions – this is the important part of your experience, picking your favourites to take home with you, it shouldn’t be rushed! As mentioned previously on the site, I expect no minimum spends so your product choices are your own, I want you to love your portraits and buy what you love!
If you opt to purchase the Folio box with either 6, 10 or 20 images inside I can get this wrapped up ready to take home if paying with cash or debit/credit card. If paying by bank transfer I will contact you once payment has cleared so that you collect your purchase. We can also discuss payment plans at the Reveal Session if this is of interest to you. Additional or upsized prints can also be ordered at your Reveal Session, along with desk prints and frames. I will usually take payment at the session and contact you when the item has been delivered ready for you to collect.
I want you to be excited about your Reveal and I hope you look forward to seeing your portraits for the first time!
