Hello and welcome to Morgan County's premiere portrait studio!
About Face Pictures focuses on the experience. There are many great photographers today so I strive to be different and to offer amazing products. I want to offer each client a custom experience. I will not meet you in a field, take your pictures and then hand you an unedited disc of your images. Instead, I will meet you in that field, but I am going to spend hours perfecting your images and then I will spend the time showing you how to properly display them. In my blog post, "Why Purchasing Prints is so Important" I discuss the importance of prints and why I hope clients will opt for them over digital images. I have scoured the market to be able to offer the top products from leading labs across the nation. Your portraits will be printed on archival quality paper so that they are sure to last for generations to come. Once you've felt the difference in my products you'll understand why I say I offer the best!
Each client will receive a pre-consultation to determine what the best type of session may be for their needs. This can be done in person, on the phone, via email, text, or Facebook messenger. Whatever works best for you! I encourage you to visit the studio and meet me in person prior to your session. I can offer guidance on clothing and ideas on locations as well. Once we've determined the type of session you need, we will schedule your session for a time and date that is convenient to you. At this time, session fees are collected. Session fees are to cover the photographer's talent, time and the editing of your images. Also, the photography contract and social media release are signed. If you do not want your portraits on social media, that's okay, it's completely fine to opt out.
On the day of your session, be ready to have fun! Upon arriving at the studio you will have time to use the restroom, change clothes, make any last minute make-up or hair adjustments and settle yourself. Bring along any extra outfits, hair accessories, jewelry or anything else you want to include. There is a place to hang your items and store things during your session. The studio will be reserved for your family only so there will be no worries about others interrupting and no need to rush through your session. Also, the studio allows us to shoot rain or shine. Try your best to relax!
Before you leave, I will schedule you to come back for your reveal session in 2-3 weeks. During the reveal session you can expect to see your images projected largely, 5x7 proofs of all of your images (available for purchase), and I will go over all of the gorgeous products that I carry. If you wish to make a payment arrangement at this time, that's okay, please do not be embarrassed to ask. There is no-interest, no credit check and the payment terms are flexible. I do ask that you allow for auto-payments to be made, but I can easily adjust the frequency and amount that you are able to pay each time. Please note that you may not pick up your items until the invoice has been paid in full. If you have friends or relatives that do not live near the studio, About Face Pictures offers an online gallery that they can view the images through and order for themselves. Your order will be ready for pick-up within 10-14 business days.
As far as children in the studio, many parents are stressed about their children's behavior and whether they will cooperate. At About Face Pictures, we try to allow children to have fun and make the session stress free. If you need to bring your children snacks, please feel free to, there is a small table and chairs for them to eat them at. I do ask that you try to refrain from bringing snacks that are very messy. Young children often want to explore the studio and want to check things out. That's okay. Please try your best to watch them to ensure that nothing is broken and your children are not injured by accident. Once they have adjusted to the space they typically will settle down and relax. If your child has special needs, please let me know in advance so we can prepare ahead of time. Sometimes it's helpful to take small breaks during the session as children can easily become overwhelmed by the entire experience. If it takes a little longer to obtain the pictures that you are wanting that's okay, we want you to receive the best!
The studio is warm and inviting with a customer lounge area where you and your children can watch television, play on the wifi, have a snack and just unwind. If you are breastfeeding, please feel comfortable breastfeeding in the studio If you would like some privacy, just ask. I will do our best to accommodate your needs.
I want your experience to be as amazing as you are! You have invested a lot of money into looking your best for the day of your session so be sure to purchase the best products. No one has ever loved looking at a disc in the drawer and often I find that people haven't even printed the pictures on that disc. Let About Face Pictures handle all of the work for you.
I look forward to hearing from you!
