Choosing the right photographer is only a small puzzle piece when it comes to all the planning decisions that need to be made. Which is why when you chose to work Rawsome Photography, you will be guided through every step of the way. My goal is to take the stress out of your portrait session. I am a mother myself so I do understand the worries and stresses that it takes to have photographs taken. I feel you, I am here to help and create an amazing experience for you. My families usually are surprised how fun and easy it was to work withe me. My style of photography focuses on your unique family connection. So, to give you the best experience I’ve created a custom Four Step Process. It is perfect for those who not only want high level of service but also tangible keepsakes to take home.
PLANNING YOUR PORTRAIT SESSION
Your experience starts with consultation going over the process, addressing all of your concerns about the session, pricing, discussing and choosing the artwork for you. It is the time we find out what you really want from your photographic experience, so you feel comfortable and excited about your portrait session! All this is done either in person consultation, over the phone or Skype.
Now you get to relax, smile, laugh and enjoy the process. My family sessions are usually at beautiful Alaskan settings like mountains, forest and beaches. All the details and preparations that were made prior are now put into action. I will guide you through the posing, will find the best lighting and artfully create your beautiful portraits. A tip for parents: during a session it is not a good time to raise moral human beings, let the kids play, have fun - it is the best way to capture their personalities and get the most smiles out of them.
VIEW AND ORDER SESSION
This is a fun part. In about a week or less, after your portrait session, we get to meet again and this is where you get to see and pick your favorite photographs. Two days prior I will share the slideshow with you of all your photographs so you would get familiar before your ordering day. Then during the meeting, with my guidance, I'll help you choose the perfect photographs for your art pieces and only the ones that you absolutely love, leave the ones you don’t.
WHAT'S NEXT: I hope that after this ultimate experience with Rawsome Photography you will see the value of planning and develop long-term strategy for your family’s photographic legacy. I am here to help you make sure that created portraits for you and your family are simply amazing and unique as they are.
Approximately 4-6 weeks after your ordering session I will hand-deliver your portraits if you are within 20 miles from studio. For others, after inspecting your art for quality I will ship it to your home address. You will smile every day as you get to see your family as an art piece in your home!
THE IMPORTANCE OF PRINTS
In the last decade our most precious memories have been mostly lost in the digital world, whether it’s social media, smartphones or hard drives tucked away. I believe life belongs in a print. It is important to think what legacy do we want to build for our family and loved ones. Think of the thousands of photos on your smart phone. How many of those will your children, grandchildren and one day great-grandchildren actually see?
Rawsome photography guides you on different ways to display your portraits for the years to come. Whether it will be a museum quality canvas that you see on the wall as a daily affirmation, a story box filled with archival quality prints, or an album that sits on your end table allowing you to browse through these memories any time you wish, the options are endless and as unique as you are.
How will you show your children the journey of your life? The photographs that will be captured today will one day become the most important thing your family will ever own. Documenting your legacy is one of the greatest gifts you can ever give them.
