I fall in love with every project I am a part of- I am become emotional and professionally invested in capturing the memories of every client! Most family and senior sessions have full session galleries up and ready to view in less than 3 weeks. I always offer a 24 hour social media sneak peek to share with anyone you wish!
To look through portfolios and really consider what you want your family or senior images to look like- a photographers website or printed materials should show you what level of work to expect from them!
What you see is what you get so find the style that perfectly matches what you want!
Budget so that you do not have to hire one whose photos you do not LOVE. Why? Few couples hang the graduation cake or cap and gown above the mantle, fewer still hand those items down to children and grandchildren.
Photos memorizing your priceless moments are what you get to share and remember by as the years go by- they are treasures!
Is it worth it to get a bargain on photos if one is unhappy with the photos? Does the photographer have real client testimonials on view on their website & trusted sites like Google? How many sessions will that person photograph that day- is my session a priority? Is getting "free" photos worth it if I am unhappy with them or they are poor quality- or worse they are never delivered? Are prints available on my online gallery or do I have to go to a poor quality pharmacy to print them?
