What should you expect when you book a session with Fly Away Home Photography? First, I will find out a little bit about you...how many people you would like in the session, the theme of the shoot (family, baby, first birthday, senior, engagement, maternity), and the ideas you have for locations. We'll talk about a variety of locations depending on what sort of look you want, urban, rural, park, etc. I love to hear your ideas and I love to discover new locations! And I want you to have fun! If you have a location in mind I have never been to before, I always visit it before your session to take test shots and get a sense of the location, the lighting available and gather some ideas for the session.
We'll spend an hour photographing and I do shoot a lot of pictures...on average about 400. Of course, there will be photos where someone has her eyes closed or one of the kids was crying...and that is why I shoot a lot of photos! I spend hours editing your session, as I do view each and every photo to choose the very best 30-40 images to present to you in the online gallery on the website. Your photos will available within two weeks. Because if you are like me, you don't want to wait to see photos! I post a sneak peak on my Facebook page within two days of your session, and you are free to tag yourself in the photos and use those for your profile picture. (Please do not crop out the watermark or otherwise copy the photos from Facebook.) I also post a sneak peak on the blog.
Session fees are payable at the time of the session. A deposit is require to reserve your date.
Photos are posted in the gallery for three weeks. You can also choose to come to my home to view your photos in a large-screen format on my iMac. Because computer monitors vary greatly, the best way to view your photos as I intend them to look is to schedule a proofing session in my home. However, for your convenience, I upload your session to a password protected gallery on this website. You can order your prints in two ways, either directly through the website or through me by emailing or calling me to place your order. I offer custom collages in several sizes: you can choose the photos for a collage and I will send you proofs to approve before an order is placed. Your prints will arrive within a week after ordering! I also offer your session on DVD and a discount is available if you order and purchase at the time of your session. Take a look at the collections, which combine prints and digital media at a savings to you.
