Think about when you need the finished product and book two months in advance. We tend to book up very quickly and relatively far in advance. There is weekday and weekend availability. Fridays and Saturdays tend to be the most popular time slots and book up the quickest. It's never to early to get on the schedule. Your photo reveal appointment will be approximately 2-3 weeks after your photo session, and your finished product (depending on what you order) will arrive between 3 and 6 weeks after that.
WHAT TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU OFFER?
The fundamental difference between sessions are CLASSIC or ENVIRONMENTAL portraits. I offer a fully bespoke experience so the final results of any session could be different.
IS THERE A BOOKING FEE?
Yes, there is a $500 non-refundable retainer that is good for one year in case you need to postpone for any reason. After your session the amount is applied towards your print purchase. You are not, however, obligated to buy. It's my job to present you beautiful fully retouched photographs that you will love. If you don't love them, you walk away.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT TO SPEND ON A PACKAGE?
Our smallest collection is $1,700 + tax. This includes all the services plus images.
For the CLASSIC PORTRAITURE it includes six beautifully matted images and our Lauren folio box. The Lauren folio box can hold up to 18 images so you can purchase as many as you like once you see your images. If you don't want to display your photos, you have the option to select our album.
For the ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITURE it includes a gorgeous hand made photo book, perfect for your journalistic style images.
I will cover this stuff during our consultation.
WHEN AND HOW WILL I SELECT MY FAVORITE IMAGES FROM MY SHOOT?
I do in-person photo reveals a few weeks after your photo session. Your reveal is when you see your images and order your prints. I will help you decide between images, showing similar images side by side for easy selection. I will also help you select your perfect print options.
Selecting your style.
THE CLASSIC PORTRAIT SESSION IS IN STUDIO.
The Classic session is a great option for a woman who wants a collection of absolutely breathtaking portraits of herself that are wall-worthy. There is preparation pre-shoot.......wardrobe for this session can be a ball gown, little black dress, fabric draping. There are more special effects and finessing on the back end such as fine art textures and extensive retouching done on these images, and the final outcome is roughly 15-20 fully enhanced wall-ready images. Angela's typical style is a soulful finish with a "fine art" look and feel, up to a painterly finish. This however, is your bespoke experience, so the final look and feel is up to you. The question will always be - what can we create for you? The finished product is our beautiful folio box with wall ready images.
This is an ideal session for the woman who loves the portraits of Vanity Fair and wants a studio experience.
ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITS are done in a woman's usual environment, such as her home or workplace, and is meant to illuminate her life and surroundings and to capture her AUTHENTIC essence.
These images tend to be a little more raw, real, candid, unposed, though I do pose you. These are meant to embrace a woman's independence, femininity, and her FIERCENESS IN THE WORLD. This can involve a certain level of undress (either lingerie, loungewear, other intimate apparel). The finished product is typically a variety of about 60-70 images with a natural retouch (no special effects other than black and white on some images) that include "detail" shots such as legs, breasts, back and shoulders, lips, as well as full body scapes and imagery that includes the face.
These images are intended to tell a story so the finished product is a beautiful handmade photobook vs. individual images. You can, however, select images from this shoot for display. This is an ideal session for the woman who wants to be photographed in her own space, loves images that are a little more raw, real, candid, and unposed. Lovers of Peter Lingbergh's style.
This is also ideal for the woman who needs personal branding or social media content for her business.
Where ever you are in life, you are worthy of a one-of-a-kind portrait session that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Professional hair & make-up is included with every session. Sit back, relax, and be pampered. Allow me to show you the most beautiful photo you’ve ever seen of yourself.
