How It Works

Before the session:

*We’ll discuss what you have in mind. Are you looking for an in-home newborn session, a family portrait on Folsom Lake or portraits of your dog at the local park?

*Location, location, location.:)We can choose your property, a trailhead or local park to create your portraits. If you don’t have any ideas, I have plenty! If I haven’t been there before, I will check it out to assess the lighting.

During the Session:

*I will allot 1-2 hours, 2-3 for a newborn session. The best light is available 2 hours before sunset or shortly after sunrise. Indoor sessions are much more flexible in terms of time of day.

*Worried about your young children being “uncooperative”? Don’t be! Kids will be kids and I would be surprised if they weren’t. I have tons of patience with kids and I’m not above bribing them with stickers or candy.:)

*For a pet session, please plan on keeping your dog’s collar and leash on for the duration. This is solely to prevent your dog from becoming lost or injured. No worries- I will photoshop out that bright red leash.:)Try not to overfeed or give treats before our session. This will encourage your pooch to cooperate with me for a treat reward.

*I know it can be nerve wracking to have your picture taken, but TRY to relax. I want to capture your natural expressions and smiles. You don’t have to have a smile on your face the whole time. Especially during family or multiple children sessions, some of the best images I have ever taken are those “in between” moments when people are just being together and having fun.

*I will send you more detailed information if you are planning a newborn or pet session, in particular.

* Session fee is due at this time.

After the Session:

*Within one week of our session, you will have an online gallery to view your images. This gallery will be up for 5 days. If no order is placed during this 5 day period and you request the gallery be uploaded again, a $25 fee will be charged.

*Your order will arrive at your home within 2-3 weeks of ordering.

*If you are EVER unsatisfied with any part of your experience with Christie Provost Photography, please tell me and I will make it right.
