INQUIRY

 

From the moment you reach out to inquire about booking a Portrait Session, I will guide and advise you to help you bring your vision to reality.

I pride myself on timely communication and a booking process to make things as seamless as possible.

1.

REVEAL & ORDERING APPOINTMENT

 

This is when you see your images for the first time! The Reveal & Ordering Session is the time when you get to see all the fruits of the session pay off. Your images are presented and we take the time to design the right art piece for your home. Whether it be a beautifully framed series, a canvas or an album I will help you through every step that ends in a beautiful end result.

4.

CONSULTATION

 

This little chat can take place at my studio, a meet up for coffee or on the phone, whatever is most convenient for you.  The reason for this consultation is for me to get a clear idea of your vision and translate that into beautiful images.  From wardrobe to location to how you plan to display your images - together will cover it all.

Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your home and your vision and we’ll add in our creativity to make it happen.

2.

DELIVERY

 

About 4-6 weeks later, your art piece will be ready. I will contact you to let you know it’s here and make arrangements for you to take home the final result. Once those portraits are hanging, you can sit back and enjoy them EVERY DAY. For these are your precious people - the ones who warm your heart and bring a smile to your face.

5.

PORTRAIT DAY

 

Depending on the type of session you are planning, we can shoot either at my studio in South Langley, outdoors at your favourite location and sometimes even a combination of both.

My studio offers a relaxed environment where we can create no matter what the weather. When our beautiful Lower Mainland is looking its best, we can head outside for some special shots at the location that means the most to you. 

3.

LOOKING DOWN THE ROAD

 

My clients often return year after year. As your family grows and changes, it will be time to update your portraits. So right from the beginning we plan with the long term in mind. The next time you work with Shelly Welch Photography, we’ll create art that coordinates with sessions past, so you can build on to what has already been created for you in a way that works and delights you year after year..

6.

THE EXPERIENCE

 

You are commemorating special time in your lives with portraits, and that includes where you are going to display them in your home.  Together, we will create a plan and translate that plan into a portrait session that results in beautiful imagery for you to display.  

Your entire portrait process takes place over a few separate meetings -

Your Pre-Session Consultation, Portrait Session,  Reveal & Ordering Appointment and Delivery

 

The question is - How Do You Want to Display Your Images?

Knowing the answer will help us to create a plan for your session, shoot it in the best possible way to reach our end-goal, and show you images that touch your heart.. Let me show you how my Portrait Process works.

 

INVESTMENT

I offer several session options tailored to the type of portraits you are planning for. The creative session fee formally books your portrait appointment and covers the pre-session consultation in person or by phone, your portrait session, post-session processing and preparation of your images and a private viewing/ordering appointment at my studio. It does not include any prints or products.

FAQ

DO YOU SELL DIGITAL FILES?

Although I consider myself a Print Artist, I do offer Digital Files to my clients at their Ordering Appointment.

 

Create your custom Collection and get all your digitals at a discounted price.

If you only want digitals, I do offer them in sets of 6, 12 and 20 images.

CAN I SHARE MY IMAGES ON SOCIAL MEDIA?

Absolutely! 

I will post a sneak peek of my favorites from the session on social media. Those images are for you to share with your friends and family as well. I do request that you do not alter or crop the images in anyway. 

DO YOU USE PROPS?

 

I prefer to keep things simple and timeless so tend to stay away from a lot props or patterned backdrops. 

However, if there is an item that is special to you or your child, then please mention it during our consultation prior to your Portrait Session and I will do my best to incorporate it into the portrait session.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?

 

I do provide access to my wardrobe closet with some sessions as well as lots of tips on the best way to prepare for your session, including wardrobe ideas and suggestions.
