Whether your photography session is at the White Plains, Westchester NY portrait photo studio, or at the place of your business, here are basic info to get you ready:
BOOKING YOUR PHOTO SESSION
It's always best to book your photo session in advance, especially if you are working towards a specific deadline. It's also important to take the time required for photo session and editing into account when booking your personal branding session.
All sessions are prepaid in advance, with cash, cheque, or major credit card. Please use the Book Your Session link
THE BRAINSTORMING SESSION
Once you've set a date for your photo session, we can begin brainstorming ideas. The photos from your Personal Branding Session are very multi-purpose. They can be used for your website, promotional materials, blogs, ads, social media, headers, banners, or as a dating sites profile, a modeling portfolio, and more. That's why planning and analyzing is so important. Knowing where and how you want to use your images will help me understand whether you'll require vertical, horizontal, or square images for Instagram. If you will want to use text across any of your images, please let me know so that I can plan the image backgrounds accordingly.
YOUR BRAND DESCRIPTION / YOUR GOAL
I ask that you come up with a brief detailed description of your brand and what it stands for so that we can find ways to bring this across in your images. If there are specific colors that you would like to incorporate, please let me know.
Our goal is to paint the perfect picture of what it is you do, and what sets you apart from your competition. These images will provide an important glimpse into what it would be like to work with you.
PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION
Confirm any hair and makeup appointments. If you will be coloring your hair, this is the time to do it. The day before your session I ask that you prepare your outfits, ensuring that they're steamed, pressed and on hangers. If you want to look great in your photos, make sure you are well hydrated on the day prior and be sure to go to bed early so you will look and feel rested.
THE DAY OF THE SESSION
Now it's all about relaxing and enjoying the experience. I will direct you on how to pose and ensure that you get the best possible shots.
For Headshot Session - quick and easy. With one look/outfit I'll take your headshots in less than 20 min.
For Personal Branding Session - Usually starts with makeup and hair styling right at the comfort of my studio. Once you're ready, I'll take a mix of lifestyle images (full body, 2/3, standing, sitting...) with change of wardrobe to give your audience a better view of what you/your brand are all about. Headshots are incorporated into this session as well. Personal Branding Session takes about 3 hours.
For Corporate Branding Session - please make sure your wardrobe is in order, your makeup & hair is done (if applicable), and all people that should be part of the shoot are present. I work fast and productive, so I'll make sure that the whole process will not take a lot of time out of your business operations.
SELECTING YOUR IMAGES
You proofs will be available for preview through online gallery. The access to the gallery will be emailed to you in the next 2 days.
While the packages do come with a specific number of images, there is always the option to purchase additional shots if you would like to use extra photos. It's best to choose a good mix of images so that you have a variety available to you. I am always happy to assist you with this process if need be.
The basic fine tuning of the images are included. If there any specific editing requests, please let me know.
