during, If you're wondering what to expect from your time with Enraptured Photography, look no further! We specialize in creating a personalized experience for you and your family that's fun and meaningful. Although the goal of working together is to create wonderful images, we also strive to make the process of getting there enjoyable and memorable! Here's how it works.

taking pictures On the day of your session, we'll meet at the agreed location and time and start snapping away! A portrait session can take anywhere from 1-2 hours. There's really no rush- or general time limit -just what feels natural. It generally takes at least 30 minutes for us to "warm up" together, meaning getting comfortable and feeling relaxed in front of (or behind!) the lens. After that, it's really up to the photographed subject as to how long the session will last. This is the fun part - let us do the work!

4 initial consultation Every session begins with an initial in -person or phone consultation so we can get to know one another. Your place or somewhere in-between or on the phone, we love to meet or chat over a cup of tea or coffee and learn more about you and your family, your goals for the portrait session, and ideas for decorating your home. We also encourage clients to use this time for questions and ideas;. We also love to give you ideas on what to wear:)

ordering session The photos have been taken, individually retouched with great love and care, and now it's time for you to see the end result of all our hard work and planning! One of our clients' favorite parts of the entire Enraptured Photography experience is getting to see their beautiful image! We provide a link to your private online gallery so you can view them in the comfort on your own home. At this point in time, you'll have the opportunity to choose the photographs you would like to have as prints, albums, canvas, or a variety of other handcrafted photo products we offer. We can make recommendations for photo products we think would enhance your living space! This is your time to ask questions, place orders, and get excited about your images.

scheduling

Planning in advance is the key to success! If your family or child has a daily routine, it's best to schedule the photo session in a way that works with, not against, this routine. If your child has a certain naptime, we'll plan the shoot to be either before or after she wakes up to prevent tantrums and fatigue. If your baby generally sleeps during the afternoon, a morning session maybe best. We are here to make your session a success, and will work with you individually to find a time and place that fits the family and the beautiful natural

If we've chosen an outdoor location for your photos, we will most likely be at the mercy of the weather! If the day turns out to be extremely hot, which can be dangerous and frustrating for the family, we'll find an alternate date for the photos. Similarly, for rainstorms, snow, or extreme cold, we'd rather reschedule than push everyone into an uncomfortable place! We will be in communication the day before and day of the session to discuss any challenges that may arise and deal with them in the most convenient way possible for your family.
