Where Do I Begin?
Let's Get Started!
Whether you're new to the photography world or not, you'll likely want to know how it all goes down, what to expect and when. I have put together a timeline so you know what to expect from your first inquiry to obtaining your images when working with me.
Step 1: View my Gallery
Check out my work to see if I am the right style photographer for you.
Step 2: First Inquiry
Call me, send me a message or fill out the Contact Me form. Every portrait session with me starts with the careful planning of a session that is designed to fit your needs. We will discuss a date, time, and location and create a combination that fits your style and vision.
Step 3: Want to Book? Let's Do This!
Once we have finalized the session details, you will be able to fill out the official booking form and pay your $100 non-refundable session fee, which also serves as your deposit. The remainder of the balance becomes due on the session day. I accept cash, check, credit card or Venmo. Checks can be made out to Eller Leigh Photography. If paying by credit card, there is a 3% charge. I work Monday through Friday, save my weekends for mini sessions and family but may occasionally have a Sunday evening available.
Step 4: Two Days Before Session
In the days prior to your session, I will always be available to you, but two days or so before your session date, I will touch base with you again to confirm the date, time, any questions you may have, etc.
Step 5: Date of Session
My goal is to create a relaxing, laid-back, fun environment where everyone can be themselves. I love both posed and candid moments and move about to create beautiful lighting in the prettiest scenery.
Step 6: After the Session
I will send you a gallery of unfinished/unedited images where you are able to select your favorite images based on how many images come with your session. After selecting your favorites, I do a complete edit on those selected and send you the final gallery where you can instantly download directly to your computer. The faster you pick your favorites, the faster I am able to get started editing.
Step 7: Two-Three Weeks Later
It takes about two-three weeks to complete your edits after selecting your favorite images. I pour my heart and soul into professionally editing each individual moment. I am always so excited to show your beautiful images to you as you are to see them. I’ll post a few images to social media (Facebook and Instagram), so follow me there.
What Your Package Includes
My sessions are all-inclusive, which means that each package is priced to include the specified number of digital images. You have the option to purchase additional images if you wish to do so.
All images include a print release, allowing you to print as many times as you would like at your favorite print company. If you would like professional quality prints, let me know and I can help you.
I take pride in handling the images from start to finish and delivering exactly what I saw and felt on that day through my images.
That’s my timeline; I hope it helped in some way.
