How to Book: Let’s pick out a date so email me! Please plan in advance as I typically book 9-12 weeks ahead of time. We will discuss your ideas, what options are best for you, and start planning your shoot. I’ll go over all the details of my typical portrait contract with you, and answer any questions. Non-refundable retainer of $150 and a signed contract must be received to reserve your appointment time and lock pricing, as it is subject to change at anytime. Contracts and Payments are both done online, easy stuff here!
Location: I’m an “On location” kinda girl. I love creative locations – indoor and out. I have 30 acres of land in Hardin County I shoot at often, but love variety, so bring on your ideas! For newborn shoots – toddlers, I do have a small indoor studio for use at my home.
When are you available to shoot:
M-F:I do all of my portrait sessions through the week – most often done in the evenings around 2 hours before sunset.
Saturdays and Sundays: Reserved for Weddings and Family Time
What to wear: Something comfortable! Your favorite outfit, or your favorite jeans. It’s important to wear comfortable shoes, as we may be walking a bit outside to get you to the perfect spot. If there are several people in your family coming for photos, you don’t have to match, but I would coordinate. So, one person shouldn’t be wearing all neon colors while a few others are wearing all plaid. Feel free to bring outfit changes or any special props if you want. Need some ideas or inspiration?? Well, here ya go. http://pinterest.com/elainajanes/what-to-wear/
What to expect: Laid back and FUN! No need to stress, this is going to be an enjoyable experience, so just come ready to smile and laugh a lot. We will walk, talk, and might even get a little dirty. It will be so laid back, in fact, expect me to be wearing sweatpants and a hoodie. If you’re lucky, I might even be sporting a side ponytail. I promise, you’ll have a good time.
Payment: $150 non-refundable retainer due at booking. If I’m traveling outside of the Hardin County area, I’ll let you know the extra travel expenses before your session. 1-2 weeks before your appointment, I’ll email you to confirm all of our details, directions if necessary and my contact information. Balance of your session is due the day we shoot! :)
After your session: After we are all done, I will process your photos and email a link to see them all. I know that waiting is the hardest part, so I go ahead and let you see them asap! I can usually have this to you within the week. I use my discretion, and give you the best photos from the shoots. This link will be password protected, and you will be able to purchase prints and specialty items directly from this link as well as download images immediately with a print release!
I’ll post 1-3 images on my Facebook page for you (www.facebook.com/elainajanesphoto) if you wish to share your images publicly. Make sure you “LIKE” the page if you haven’t already, so you’ll be able to see them and tag yourself in them to use as profile pictures and share with your friends and family! Other images from your session will be posted after purchases have been made.I do retain the copyright to all photos I take for use of promotion and my growing portfolio. This means that I own the photo, that I do NOT give permission to edit in any way.
