Before the shoot….
A photo session with Pixalillie: Natural Light Photography is relaxed, fun, and mostly outdoors! I love nature and the different seasons we have here in Texas. Once you contact me, we will have a consultation so I can incorporate your interests to create a truly reflective portrait of you and your family. Now is the time to express your style and personality using your love for clothing, hair, shoes, and accessories. If there are any props or special heirlooms you would like to be part of the session please let me know. I love accessories and items that have texture such as sweaters, vests, hats, scarves, boots, and necklaces. Simple, but fun is the key. Please wear what really expresses who you are whether it’s vintage, fashionista, cowboy or cowgirl, boutique, classy and elegant, be unique, be yourself.
Most of my sessions take place at an agreed outdoor site such as historic downtown, hip hop urban settings, train depots, local parks, nature trails, playgrounds, public gardens, field of wildflowers, or even your very own backyard. If there is a special location you have in mind, please let me know at time of consultation. I can do an indoor session at your home provided there is sufficient lighting. As a natural light photographer, I love using the morning or the evening light, but can work with afternoon light too. I am available between 9am and 1pm for newborn and maternity sessions during the week. I am also available all day on Saturdays and Sunday evenings only. Sessions are arranged for morning times starting as early as 8:30am and for twilight hours around 5pm till dark. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire. Sessions are a minimum of 1 hour and can go up to 3 hours if needed. I also do have 30 minute themed mini sessions throughout the year so like my blog or facebook page to keep in touch to get those updates when and where they are going to happen.
During the shoot …
We will be walking and looking for some great areas with great lighting. I like to shoot in a casual manner with an un-rushed approach that allows time for you to get familiar with me and the camera. My relaxed style of shooting allows me to capture images that are spontaneous and real. Every session will have its own unique feel and look. I take several shots to ensure that I capture my subject at his or her best. At the end of the session, We will schedule your in-person viewing session and provide you a measuring tape so you can start thinking where you would like to hang those beautiful prints/gallery wraps/canvas clusters and what sizes you will need for displaying your beautiful images in your home.
After the shoot….
Pictures from the session are fully edited and ready to be viewed in person in approximately 4 weeks, also allowing me to order the proofs as well. Only a few sneak peaks will be posted on my Facebook Pixalillie: Natural Light Photography page because I love to see your reaction in person. I prefer that we meet and have a “viewing and ordering session”. This is the exciting part!!! You will be presented with physical 5×7 proofs to review and tell me which ones you “like” and which ones you “LOVE”! From the LOVE pile, then we can create a wonderful package for you to take home and share with family and friends and display in your home proudly. I several products such as image boxes, gallery wraps, standouts, books, prints and dvd/drives that are available for you to purchase at the time of the viewing session.
Everyday is a blessing and I would be honored to capture the unforgettable memories of your beautiful family and loved ones to cherish forever.
