Tips For Your “Epic” Photo Shoot:

Blue Brush Stroke

 

Be Yourself

  • The best photos come from letting the participants be themselves.
  • Families should play and make it fun, enjoy the experience; don’t make it feel like work, but rather an Epic experience…an adventure.
  • Let children be children, we will capture timeless moments by you being yourselves, we will step in and direct only when necessary.
  • Let’s make sure everyone is comfortable and relaxed, including mom and dad. Let the family know this is meant to be fun. Everyone needs time to warm up, so let’s not be over anxious and over critical in the beginning or any time. It is our job to get them to smile not yours.
  • Please bring refreshments but snacks should only be promised after the session is over. Food can make for advanced editing and additional charges.
  • Avoid bringing personal attachments along unless you want them in all the photos with your child!
  • Remember that if your child feels unhappy or nervous during your session, it WILL show on camera!

What To Wear

  • There are really no rules, just be comfortable and be you! We’re here if you need any tips!
  • Whether you’re going for timeless, funky, fun – just make it about your family’s style.
  • Coordinating but not exactly matching is always fun!
  • Remember we want to try all types of poses. Certain clothing will limit those options.
    WARNING:
    sitting, relaxing, and having fun are all ingredients for an Epic photo session!

This Is Epic Working For You

  • Our philosophy is to create and edit vibrant, colorful, candid, and natural photos while maintaining the TRUE image of your family.
  • We love to meet our clients to develop a plan; this can be done over the phone or in person.
  • Please try to schedule your session 3-4 weeks ahead of time, newborns should be 2-3 months.
  • A session can last anywhere from 1 – 3 hours.
  • NEWBORNS can take up to 4 hours; we highly recommend within the first 10 days after birth.
  • Please allow 1-2 weeks for your proof gallery to be online. The time varies depending on the time of year and our current workload. Remember these are proofs; we offer all levels of advanced editing.
  • You are encouraged to schedule a VIEWING SESSION to see your gallery on a large flat screen TV here at our studio, where we can walk you step by step through our editing process and through all your favorite proofs. At this time we can show you sizes, crops, color schemes and side-by-side comparisons. This typically takes about 60-90 minutes but makes ordering easy and fun. Plus you can see more of the products we offer that are not online.
  • Allow 2-3 weeks for your orders to arrive once they are placed: rush orders are available for an additional charge.
