WHAT MAKES ASHTIN MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY UNIQUE?
What is the full service experience?
Pre-Session Consult / Style Assistance:
Each session begins with a pre-session consultation either via email or over the phone to go over your vision and goals for the shoot. You will complete a questionnaire and we will get to know each other. I consider each client an extension of my own family! Let’s go over the ‘why’ you want these photos done, why are they special to you? Where do you plan on displaying these in your home? We will discuss location and outfit options!
For maternity sessions, we will go over all the different gown options and choose the best dress (or 2 or 3) to really showcase your baby bump!
Day of Session:
Your session should be FUN! Yes, its a bit of work getting ready – hair, makeup, taking care of kids – but trust me, the end result will be SO worth it! Once you step foot in the studio, on the beach, or anywhere else we go, my goal is to put you completely at ease. In other words, I. GOT. YOU! Don’t worry about posing, your hair, your children or your baby – I will handle everything and make sure you look stunning in every image! I can get super silly during family sessions and have plenty tricks up my sleeves to keep the attention of all involved. For family sessions, we will play, we will laugh, we will smile and show lots of affection. After all, thats what this is all about, right?? – capturing the connection between those few individuals that you love the most in the entire world!
Post Processing/Behind the Scenes:
After your shoot, I cannot wait to turn your family into ART! This is really where the magic happens! I go through your hundreds of images, and narrow it down to the best of the best.
Newborn sessions should expect to see around 25-30 fully finished edited images. Black and white options always available. Full family sessions should expect to see around 50 finished images while minis should expect around 25.
Every single image you end up seeing is masterfully edited and enhanced. What does this mean??
For adults & children – skin will be smoothed, blemishes, bruises & acne removed, wrinkles & fine lines reduced, curves tucked and accentuated, skies enhanced, bystanders, beach tents and other objects removed from any backgrounds, eyes pop, teeth whitened, etc. I even do the infamous face swap for children if needed! All of this is standard for my clients – I do not charge for editing.
For newborns, skin will be flawless and all coloring will be enhanced.
Reveal Wall & Ordering Appointment
Once your images are ready to go, we will schedule a time for your photo reveal & ordering. This is my FAVORITE part. I just live to see your happy tears as you look at each and every image. This is where all our planning, participation and anticipation come to fruition and you get to finally see the end results!
For local families, you will either come back to the studio for the reveal wall where you get to see, touch and feel your images in print or we can meet at your home.
For out of state families, we will meet back up at your condo/home before you head back out of town or we will have a skype reveal via slideshow once you are back home.
We will work together to create your own custom package to include wall art, digital images and/or heirloom albums!
