The Ins & Outs of a Photo Shoot With Thomas Photographic
Jun 19, 2019
So you’ve scheduled a shoot at Thomas Photographic - that’s great! Now what?! In today’s blog post, we are going to walk you through how the typical photo shoot process goes from start to finish!
Our photo sessions are one hour long and cost $89. We put no limit on the number of people or poses you can have in that hour. We allow you to have total freedom during the shoot! Once you’ve called us to book your session, you have some important decisions to make! First off, choosing the right location for your shoot can help bring a creative twist to your average family portraits. Are you thinking of using or studio? Or are you thinking outside? If you need help thinking of some great locations around the Homewood-Flossmoor area, click here to get some location inspiration from our previous blog post. Second, knowing how many people will be in the shoot will help us prepare in advanced. If you are taking pictures with multiple people, don’t forget to color coordinate to get the most out of your portraits!
Next comes the day of the shoot! During the one hour session, we will help you feel comfortable and confident by guiding you and your family through the poses and groupings we typically use. If there are any poses you are after, please let us know and we’d be happy to accommodate!
After the shoot, it’s time to choose your favorites! We invite you into the studio to review all of the pictures. Together, we will narrow down the pictures that you would like edited. You can also review pictures online, but we always recommend coming into our studio for easier selections. Don’t feel stressed to pick the best of the best right then and there! We keep all photos for 3 years, which allows you to come back at a later date and pick out more! The editing process typically includes light skin retouching, fixing fly-away hairs, adjusting the background, and fixing any other issues that may distract from the overall quality of the photo. After editing, we will deliver the purchased pictures to you normally within 1.5 to 2 weeks after the review session. Please allow for extra time around the holidays, but we always try to stick within that delivery window!
