WHAT TO EXPECT
BEFORE OUR SESSION
So you want to book your session with me! Great! Now, all you need to do is click HERE to fill out my contact form or give me a call! I will then send over your booking agreement and an invoice for the retainer (50% of the creative fee). Once those two things are completed, we can set up a time to meet up + chat! (this is totally optional, but it’s a great opportunity for us to get to know each other, and plan out your session TOGETHER, and a great way for me to find out your likes/dislikes to make sure we capture exactly what you are looking for!) And that’s it! I will be in touch with you again well before our session to check in, answer questions, and confirm the details!
DURING OUR SESSION
If you’re still worried about being in front of the camera, please don’t be! I will guide you the entire time to ensure you look your very best! You cannot mess this up, I promise!! We will have plenty of shooting time to get a ton of great images! This is all about YOU, and the MOST important thing I want this to be for you is a FUN experience that you can add to your memory bank of your senior year! I like to schedule all my sessions a few hours before sunset when the light is soft + dreamy!
AFTER OUR SESSION
The balance of the creative fee is due the day of your session. One week after your session, I will have your images ready to present to you at our viewing + ordering appointment! This is the exciting time when we will look at your images together for the very first time! I will have samples of our beautiful, high quality prints, albums/books, metals, canvases and cards so you can see and feel them for yourself! I have a few different collections I put together, or you can choose from our a la carte menu and make your own! Collections begin at $405, and there is a minimum purchase requirement of $400. If you aren’t interested in any prints or products, digital images are available as well! The average Melissa Pollino Photography client invests between $1200-$1800 on their custom photography experience. Ask about payment options/plans! I want this to be a stress free experience!
