Woohoo! We just ROCKED your family session and everyone had a blast. Back in the car, everyone is gushing about how silly the games were and how Dad has the stinkiest feet, no doubt. Everyone is going to sleep well tonight and you have earned that glass of red, mama! But, wait! Do you know what to expect after your family session? Read on to find out!
The Sneak Peek
With your permission, I will post a sneak peek within the next 48 hours. Please be reassured that I work as quickly as possible to get this to you. I love to post sneak peeks on my Facebook page and my Instagram, so be sure to keep an eye out. If you love your sneak peek, don’t be afraid to tag yourself and share away! I love having the opportunity to work with your friends and family after they see your pictures.
What to Expect After Your Family Session: Your Pictures
Within 1 week, you will receive an email with all of your unedited images in it. Please note, that I really don’t make any changes to these pictures, these images are straight out of camera. You will be able to select your 15 favorite images from the ones in the gallery. If you decide you just can’t decide and want to purchase more (or all!) of them, you can make that decision then.
Once you have made your final choices, click the button in the gallery that says “Notify Photographer” and you will add yourself to my editing queue through this step. I edit galleries in the oder that I receive them back in. I also give myself two weeks to edit and finalize your gallery. If you need to rush your gallery for any reason, this can be done for an additional fee.
Your Final Gallery
Two weeks after you returned your choices, you will receive your final gallery of edited images. At this point, you can download your images to your own devices and share them however you wish. I absolutely love it when you’re able to tag me in any photos on social media. It truly is the best thing you can do to help a small business grow!
If you are interested in ordering any products from your session, that is definitely a possibility. I offer canvases, high-quality prints and albums in my shop. This is the best way to guarantee your images will be displayed with the highest possible quality. If you want to see my favorite print vendors, you can see my list here (LINK). Please note that I do not have control over the print quality of consumer labs. Per our contract, I am not responsible if you print your pictures through a consumer lab and are not impressed with the quality. Consumer labs include CVS, Walgreens, Costco, Target, among others.
What to Expect After Your Family Session: Feedback
About a week after your session, I’ll shoot you a quick email to see if you’d be able to leave me some feedback. I have a questionnaire that I like to send out, as I am constantly seeking to improve my practice. In addition, if you had time to leave me a Facebook review or, even better, a Google review, that would mean the world to me and my family.
So that’s it! From the moment your sessions wraps up to the moment you print your pictures, I have you covered. As always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the family session process.
