Plan Your Session
“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” -Benjamin Franklin We will walk you through our 5-Step Process to the Perfect Photo Session.
Display your Art
Decorate your walls, create an album, and send prints to your friends and family. Share your images with everyone to be reminded of how beautiful life has become.
PRINTS ARE A MUST!
Have you ever heard, “A picture is worth a thousand words”? What will yours say?
Prints really do matter, both now and for generations to come. Instead of letting life pass you by and only posting a few of your favorites images that are quickly forgotten on social media, preserve your memories in the form of wall art to be seen and to incite emotion with family and friends for years to come. We believe that this is so important, that is why we include a wedding album with every wedding collection along with offering a variety of print options from books to desk art, metal prints, canvas gallery wraps, acrylic options large and small. We also have a wide selection of frame options for your favorite images.
We can’t wait to hear more about you and your story, so we can ensure you have exactly what you need from your photo session.
Seniors your time has come to show the world who you are. We design our sessions around you, from the location you select to the outfit you want to wear. We are here to help guide you along the way to the perfect senior session.
Our 5-step process to the Perfect Portrait Session will guarantee images that you’ll fall in love with. Only at Showalter Photography will you experience a unique photo shoot that has even the most “camera shy” person feeling relaxed in front of the lens.
First Things First!
First things first – we’ll get together to plan your portrait session. The planning will include your session location(s), props, outfits/style and how and where you might want to display your portraits. The planning process is vital to your session and is the easiest way to avoid bad portraits. When we finish you will be confident that you are ready for the next step.
Now that we have planned the entire session, you won’t feel anxious, uneasy, or nervous during the photo shoot. You’ll have so much fun during your session, you won’t even realize we are guiding you through the session to get perfectly natural looks.
We will get together after the photo shoot and go through the images you love the most. All portraits are professionally retouched so they look perfect before you view them. This is crucial when it comes to the ordering process–removing the guess work.
Once we have helped you pick your favorites, we will guide you through the best way to display your portraits and help you pick the right size and style of wall art for your space. We get the fact that arranging art isn’t something you do every day, and it may even feel a little overwhelming. The good news is that arranging portraits is something we do a lot of, and we would love to answer any of your questions and share with you what we’ve learned over the years. We would also like to show you all of the other various options that enhance your order like albums, books, cards, prints, etc. You will be amazed at what we can create together.
Now that we have your favorite shots picked out, we’ll send your images to our Photoshop Guru for retouching to remove any blemishes or imperfections. So don’t worry about the little things while we are shooting. Our Photoshop Guru has 24 years of experience in retouching portraits, and he knows exactly how to remove just about anything, while keeping a natural look to the image. Most of the time you will not even know that our images have been retouched at all.
Once your images have been retouched, they are sent to our lab. Our lab uses an archival process to ensure the best quality for all of your print products.
The Most Exciting Step!
The most exciting step is getting together to deliver your portraits. We want you to be just as excited about your portraits years from now as you are on the day you receive them!
Portraits can be picked up in-studio during business hours or by appointment. If you don’t live in the area, we offer shipping options as well. All digital images are provided by email link through Google Drive.
We made our 5-step photography process simple. It all starts with a no-obligation phone consultation, during which we will make you confident that all of your questions have been answered. We want to eliminate the thought of “Did I find the right photographer?”
