Portrait Session Information
Where do Portrait sessions take place?
Portrait sessions are taken at some of my favorite outdoor locations near Los Angeles, Orange County, and the inland empire (please inquire for any travel sessions outside these areas). Depending on the location that you choose or the background that we want, we will work together to determine what will fit best for your session. Keep in mind the crowds of people that may be in the public places that you choose. For example, if you want a beach location, it's best to choose a weekday because its less crowded than on the weekend. Indoor lifestyle sessions are taken in the comfort of your home, near the beautiful window light.
What time will sessions take place?
Outdoor sessions are taken in the natural light, an hour and a half before sunset, when the lighting is the softest. In home lifestyle sessions are taken around 11am-1pm.
How many pictures should I expect to proof from the session?
Mini sessions receive +25 images.
Full hour sessions receive + 50 images.
Are the images retouched?
Yes, all images you will be presented with are always retouched and edit. The quality you see on my website, is what you should expect back in a session.
When will we get to see our pictures from a session?
Your images from your session will be presented in a private online gallery 3-4 weeks after your session date, ready for you to download. Your gallery will available for you to view and share with whoever you like! I will post a sneak peak within 2 weeks from your session, so follow along on Instagram or Facebook.
Am I given the digital files from my session?
Yes! We live in a digital age, and I value my clients desires to obtain digital files from their session. The digital files are included in your packages and I will provide you with a list of recommended printers to get the most of your images.
How do I book my session with you?
If you decide to book a session with me, we can schedule a tentative date. You select the package that you want, then I send you over the agreement for you to review, sign and email back with a 50% non refundable retainer. Once I receive the retainer we can lock in your date.
Retainers can be made via Venmo @janellemarina (free app) or you can mail Cash or Check. Final payments are collected 14 business days prior to your session.
