a custom photography experience | what is it?

 

When you hire a custom photographer, he or she is working for you!  My goal is to create a custom photography experience for YOU! I want you to love my style, love my  work, and trust me with documenting your life as it is, in the moment.  I invest as many hours per client as needed to make sure that you have great imagery of you and your family that freezes moments in time, creating stories of a lifetime. These stories are why you invest in a custom portrait photographer.

Custom portraiture is a unique experience; there are no waiting lines or crowded rooms of strangers in our studio.  Instead, we strive to make each session a relaxing and personalized experience.   Since we never schedule more than one or two sessions per day, you can rest assured that all of our attention is on you and your child; there will never be a rush.  We want you to make our studio your home!

My focus is decorating your life and home with stunning and memorable wall or table art displays. This way you can have tangible products that last a lifetime. You can share your moments and memories with everyone who enters your home!

I have a great studio located in historic Reisterstown. I feel the studio is always best for Newborn Sessions and Baby Plan Sessions. I also love photographing maternity, pet, and family sessions outdoors. So if there's a place that means something to you, let's talk about that! I do travel to you for sessions for an additional travel fee, due to travel time, set up & break down time, gas expenses, and assistant pay(where applicable).

I would be honored to be your photographer!  Please feel free to call me to chat about how we can stop time and savor this amazing moment in your family’s life with custom portraiture.

XOXO, 

Jessi

portrait process | how will it work?

 

DEPOSIT + BOOK : Your non-refundable deposit (creative fee) guarantees your session booking and studio time. If we need to reschedule due to sickness or weather, your deposit is transferable.

PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION : After you have booked your session, we will discuss your desired location and styling for the session. I will then send you a list of things to bring to your session and tips to prepare.

SESSION DAY : Be sure to leave extra time to arrive (everyone will look more relaxed in photos if you’re not stressed out from traffic, and there may be someone scheduled after you so we don’t always have the liberty to go beyond our allotted session time!) Don’t worry, we’ll ease into the photo session, play, laugh, and I’ll talk you through the process to make you look your best!

IN PERSON PHOTO REVEAL! : Approximately 1-2 weeks after your session we'll meet to see your PHOTOS!! Yes, I will show you all of the gorgeous proofs from your session. I've developed a sorting system to help you narrow down your selections. Our boutique line of products has been carefully selected based on their highest quality, unique and archival characteristics. And yes, you’ll get to see and hold samples of these beautiful photographic products at your session! BRING anyone to this session who may want to purchase photos from your session! All financial decision makers must be present at the ordering session. As stated above if you can not decide on the day of your reveal you will have to pay the $100 fee for the online viewing gallery. You may also miss reveal day only specials, such as the Baby Plan one time only half price offer!
