I will walk you through each stage. From picking out a background, the perfect outfit for the occasion or mood you may be trying to depict through being photographed, to what prints to order depending on what may fit your needs best. I typically start off the post booking process with a few questions to gain an understanding of who you are as a person, as well as your family, if you would like them included in the photo shoot. I want to know about you and what energy you want to put out through the photos I will take. After the shoot, I will update you on the progress of your photos being edited and enhanced. Later, we'll set up an appointment for you to see your gorgeous photos and discuss ordering prints and print products.
What should I wear?
There are so many bodies and so many different parts of our physical selves that we like to accentuate or mask, that it can only be answered case by case. This is one of the most important reasons clients love the styling consultation. We go over ways to make them look their absolute best while boosting their confidence with attire! Until then, you can check out a few of the items I have selected for clients here.
How should I prepare for the day of my photo session?
After you have booked a photo session, we will have a styling consultation to go over everything that you envision for your shoot. You will receieve a styling guide and assistance two (2) weeks before for the photo session. The day before your photo session, I will be in contact with you to ensure you arrive safely and that parking is a breeze. If you have any questions prior to your arrival you can call (334) 300 - 2913 with any questions and concerns.
Will I be able to bring someone to the shoot with me?
YES! There's nothing in the world like the support of a loved one or friend being present during a photo shoot. You can bring one (1) family member or friend during your session. I ask that they do not interefere with the session by trying to pose you or touch you up - I've got you covered.
Do you offer prints?
Of course! The best part of being photographed is for the art to decorate and light up your home. Toria Germain not only offers prints, but during your photo reveal you will be able to purchase photo products such as albums, mounted and frames prints, crystal USB, and more.
Typically, what does the average client spend?
The average client spends about $2700 after the $650 session fee, but there is no pressure. All clients are given an hour or more during their reveal and ordering session to select and purchase the images they love.
When will you have "Mini Sessions" available?
Photography is an intimate artform that takes time. For me to take the best images of you and your family, we both need to warm up to each other. I want to know what makes you smile, your children laugh, and your grandparents glisten with joy. I want to get to know each of my clients on an intricate level to not only provide you with the best photographs, but an unforgettable experience. To provide you with the ultimate experience, I am no longer offering mini sessions.
