HOW IT ALL WORKS
0I. BOOKING & PLANNING
Once you decide I'm the photographer for you - there are different packages based on your needs & wants! I will walk you through exactly what to expect & discuss all the fun details to make sure you are more than prepared for our session. First & foremost, I value the client experience & want to ensure that we create the most special session for you & your loved ones.
Location is a big part of the planning process. I shoot exclusively with natural light, so outdoor sessions are done during golden hour (sunrise or sunset). Indoor sessions are done during the day by windows & in light rooms!
02. YOUR SESSION
Your big day is finally here - now, let's have some fun! On session day, please arrive to your shoot on time. Photo sessions times are strategic based on best lighting - so, it's critical we take advantage of every second together.
Nervous? Don't be! All you need to do is show up & have a good time. I will direct everyone, pose you & even fix your stray hairs! But - you will want to bring anything you may need: bribes for the kids, beer for your husband (lol), hairbrush + lipstick, extra change of clothes for the toddler, etc.
03. GALLERY + ORDERING
2-3 weeks after our session, you will receive an online gallery with your digital, edited images! From here, you can download both the web size & high-res files for personal use (social media, printing & sharing). Chloe Reed Photography offers a wide variety of fine art products. From lucite albums to gallery walls. Let's decorate your home, fill those frames & make memories that will truly never fade.
*CR Photo uses a professional, membership only printing + product service to ensure that your products are the highest quality offered in the industry.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I get to pick my images?
When you hire me, you entrust me with selecting the best of the best images from our session. I promise, you won't be getting pictures with your eyes closed or your kiddo picking their nose!
When & where are sessions done?
You have your choice of location! Once you book, you will receive the CR Location Guide to help you decide where would be best for you & the look you're envisioning. Outdoor sessions are done during the softest part of the day: golden hour. Indoor sessions are done during the harshest part of the day: noon. Keep that in mind when booking!
When will I receive my final images?
Editing takes time. I go through your photos & edit the 'winners' with the signature Chloe Reed Photography style.
Within 2-3 weeks, you will receive the fully edited, high resolution images in a downloadable gallery that your package comes with. I do not require print purchases but you can easily order professional quality prints + fine art products through your gallery link.
What is a family session with you like?
I spend the first moments of our session getting to know you & showing you around the location. I never want my clients to feel like I'm just a photographer - I want to be your friend! I love to capture the rawness of the situations. I don't just place you in a line & have you say "cheese." Rather, I prefer to capture the small, precious moments that come naturally! I try to capture who you ARE instead of what you just look like.
What is a newborn session like?
Newborn sessions are done in the client's home from 10am-12pm on weekdays. I recommend booking anywhere from 2-3 weeks old but, I believe every stage of a newborn is truly beautiful! We book based on your due date. However, timing is flexible since baby can arrive early or late! I take a certain number of newborn sessions per month so I recommend scheduling as soon as possible!
