the first step to amazing portraits . . .
Each of Susan's portrait sessions normally last between one hour to an hour and a half. Sometimes it will be less, or slightly longer, particularly with large family groups.
Once Susan has identified the best outdoor location either in our Victorian gazebo, flower gardens or woodlands, based on lighting, background and environmental compositions, she will guide you through the portrait session, making sure everyone looks their best.
During this time she will help everyone relax, allowing their true personality to come through! Indoors we use soft window light, with hand painted backgrounds for a painterly quality.
The creative session retainer fee formally books your portrait appointment and covers the pre-session consultation in person or by phone, your portrait session with Susan and her assistant, post-session processing and preparation of your images and a separate private viewing/ordering appointment at our studio. It does not include any prints or products. Clients may purchase products via “Create A Collection” or A La Carte.
