1. Book Your Appointment. Packages are all listed under the "investment" tab on this website. A deposit of half is due to book your photo session. We will choose the best day and time for your family. Be sure if you have little ones that you choose a time of day when they are at their happiest. Please stay away from nap times. For newborn sessions, I will put your due date on my calendar, and the exact session time will be determined after baby arrives.
2. Phone Consultation. We will discuss the perfect location, outfit, accessories, and any props so we achieve a beautiful look for your photos. Please share with me any specific ideas or looks you have in mind, or you can allow me to set up everything. I have plenty of creative ideas that I can't wait to use! Your photo session will be unique based on your needs and taste.
3. Photo Session Day! We meet to take beautiful photos of your family. Your photo session package balance will be due at this time.
4. Proofing. Within one business week of your session, I will email you a link that will allow you to view your gallery of many, many beautiful shots! No editing or cropping will be done to proofs. Some photos will need lighting and/or color adjustments, blemishes touched up, and almost all images will need cropped. All editing is completed after you send your favorite images to me. Instructions will be included with your proofing slideshow on how to submit your favorites for editing.
5. Order Your Favorites. Email me your favorite images that you would like edited. You will follow the super-simple instructions that come with your proofs to order your favorite images. You can stick to the number of final edited images that are included in your package, or add images onto your photo package. It is $40 per image if you are adding 1-6 digital images onto your package. After adding 6 images at $40 each, all additional images added are $20 each. All of your favorites emailed to me will be edited in the style shown on my website.
6. Download Your Files. About one business week after submitting your favorite proofs to me, I will have your editing complete and send you a link to download your files and the copyright. Your download link will be active for one week and it will allow you to save your photos to any device. You should definitely save them to your computer and back up your files in some way. Your files are yours to do with as you please. Please forward this email on to anyone in your family who may also want to save the files or order any professional prints. I love it when you share your edited images on social media and always appreciate when you credit Jamie Virgin Photography in your post.
7. Professional Prints. With your download link I will also send a link to order professional prints from my online store. If it is included with your package, I will also email you a coupon code that will be valid for one month. After investing in professional high-end images, it is recommended that anything you are going to display in your home be ordered through this link. There is a marked difference in the quality of prints between Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, etc. and a professional print lab. The prints that come from my professional lab are top-of-the-line quality and the color and finish is always perfect. You can expect your prints delivered to your home in about one business week after placing your order. Shipping is flat rate, $8.00 per order.
