TYPES OF SESSIONS
Portraits / Headshots
Holidays and other events
***I offer free phone/email consultations prior to any type of session, and a review session post-editing should you wish to review photos for print purchasing.***
WHAT TO WEAR
Comfortable clothing, you may be asked to pose in different ways so your want to be able to be flexible.
Avoid bold patterns and consider the shooting location when choosing your style and color of attire.
Consider a theme and go with it (sporty, western, classic, dressy, vintage, etc.).
Ladies, paint your nails, and guys get a manicure (or give yourself one). Especially if you want close ups for engagements rings or what have you.
Don't forget to accessorize! Hats and scarfs can give your photos more personality and can add a pop of color.
WHAT TO BRING
Props tailored to your individuality
Sporting equipment, musical instruments, toys for kiddos (this will also help keep them happy during the shoot!), Letterman jackets, blankets, graduation clothing, etc.
Comb/brush in case its windy;
Sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray
Anything else that you want to use to make your shoot more personal to you!
Extra clothing and diapers for babies/newborns.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER MY SHOOT
I will need time to process and edit your images. You will be given an estimated time of completion depending on my work load at the time your photos are taken, but I GUARANTEE you get them all within a week and typically within a day or 2 (for 30 minute-2 hour shoots)!!!
To access your Online Photo Gallery please refer to the link you receive via email or messaging after editing or check here http://downloads.bmgphotographyhouston.com.
You can add extras, such as prints and products, after the editing process is complete by contacting me or you can order directly from the Online Photo Gallery (ordered after you submit your payment to me). Please let me know if you have any questions or comments after you receive your final products or at any step along the way!
PAYMENTS/BILLING, RESCHEDULES, AND CANCELLATIONS
Most shoots are booked and partially paid for in advance with a $100 deposit/retainer allowing one reschedule for emergencies that may arise before 24 hours of the reservation. No-shows and no calls forfeit this deposit/retainer. Cancellations or reschedules within 24 hours of the session forfeit all money paid unless reschedules are due to events affecting both parties such as weather. Deposits/retainers will be applied to your order upon completion of the shoot.
As we depend on this schedule to satisfy other people as well, please be courteous. Some instances may be evaluated on a case-by case basis to determine fees for cancellation and rescheduling. A signed agreement/affirmation may also required to secure your reservation. Please read and agree to our policies before your shoot as you may be required to sign that you have done so.
Payment plans may be available for shoots over $500. You can pay your shoot deposit/retainer on this website!
