I have been doing this since 2011 and i've never been more inspired to create beautiful images that reflect the strong, independent women in front of the camera! I have established my business on the principle of girl power and bringing out the confidence in each of my clients. No matter how comfortable or shy you are in front of the camera, my goal is to provide you with images and an experience that truly encapsulates who you are NOW. No two sessions are the same. We will work together to customize your session to fit your style, needs and personality. We aim to provide the most relaxed, positive sessions to ensure you are in your element!
Prior to your session we will meet in person to plan your shoot! At your consultation, we will discuss locations, wardrobe choices, weather, makeup, and all of the details going into your senior session. The in-person consultation provides you and your family with the opportunity to meet me, and become comfortable with your choice of photographer. Most importantly it helps us to develop a plan for the day of your session, get to know one another, and brainstorm ideas!
A $200 Non-Refundable deposit is due when selecting your session date. This locks in your date and time. The remaining Portrait Package fee is due on the day of your session. The Portrait Packages do not include the cost of prints, products or digital files. The Portrait Package payment covers the time and talent of the photographer. Digital images included in the Print Packages will be ready 3-4 weeks after full payment has been received.
I have a 72 hour cancellation policy. Any cancellations beyond that point will result in a $100 rescheduling fee. Please contact me in cases of illnesses or emergencies as soon as possible! In cases of inclement weather, you will not be subject to pay a rescheduling fee. I understand we live in Oregon, and weather isn't always predictable. In cases of extreme rain, those unforeseen summer storms, or a forecast that suggests likely rain, we will reschedule the morning of your session. You will be rescheduled to the following open date.
Sessions are typically two hours prior to sunset for the most beautiful, warm light that is flattering to the skin. As Daylight Savings Time ends or begins, please make note of the adjustment especially if you are having Hair or Makeup done. When it gets darker sooner, you may need to miss part of school for one of our weekday sessions. We will cover most of the details of your shoot during the consultation.
If you have chosen a package from the Full Experience Series, Luxe or Excursion Package, a boutique viewing party with your friends and family is included! Approximately 1-2 weeks after your session we will meet at my studio, or the comfort of your own home to view, select and order your prints. Refreshments will be provided. Why not make it a party?! Your order must be paid in full before any digital images or prints will be delivered.
If you have selected the Basic or Modern Portrait Package, you will be provided a link to an online proof gallery to select your favorite images for your Print Package. This can be done at your own pace in the comfort of your own home. Your proof gallery will be ready to view 1-2 weeks after your session.
Digital yearbook photos can be submitted to the school by our studio. Every school has specific yearbook requirements. Not all images will meet a school’s specifications. Appropriate images will be captured for your yearbook selection. In order to have your image submitted on time, please give notice of your due date upon consultation. A 3 week minimum notice is required to have your yearbook image submitted by Emma Gaty Photography.
