First, I like to shoot outdoor sessions just after sunrise or just before sunset. I'm not a morning person at all, but when it comes to light, it has to be beautiful. Morning light gets me so excited that I literally forget I hate mornings. If you need a morning session, it is totally worth it to get up for for that sunrise light. Trust me =). Afternoon light is equally awesome. Just make sure to have a light snack, especially for the kiddos, because once we spring those clocks forward, it can run a little late. It's always best to avoid hungry becoming hangry ;). I always tell my clients that we can shoot at a dumpster with beautiful light and the images will be better than the most scenic backdrop with awful light. Light is essentially the basis of all good photography.
I have recently purchased lighting modifiers, backdrops, and flooring to allow for some indoor sessions. Everything I own is portable and can set up in your home or mine. I do try to limit indoor sessions to newborns and children, due to space constraints. Seniors are welcome to come in for a few backdrop shots before we head out on location, if that is desired.
Now I'd like to touch on each of my session packages. All of the pricing information can be found on
www.olgafordphoto.com. Just click on Session Investment. My Silver Session package is the most popular and recommended for most portrait sessions. This is great if you only need one location. We can move around that location for variety. We will also have time for one wardrobe change, if you're creative, possibly two. Shed a jacket, add a scarf or hat and you can have even more variety. For clients that would like 2-3 locations and and extra wardrobe change or two, I offer the Gold Package. I add an extra hour and a free timeline cover for your Facebook page with this package. This is popular with my seniors (and recommended), but I have had others enjoy the extra time, wardrobe, and locations to get more images and better variety. It really is a great value! I also offer Mini Sessions. From time to time I will block out a day and offer them at one location. This is an awesome value, so be sure to keep up with me on these. They will always be announce to my newsletter crowd first. You can subscribe from the link on my homepage. I also offer Mini Sessions at any time. These are great if you just need a few digital images for invites, cards, or some gifts you would like to create. I also offer Newborn Sessions. These can be done in your home or mine. I am accumulating more and more beautiful things to be able to use for some awesome images. I'm going to need a bigger house if I get any more. Really. These sessions are unique because I keep the pace slow and calm. I allow plenty of time for feeding, changing, and clean ups, if need be. The best time to schedule your newborn session is well before your are due. I highly, highly recommend getting in before the baby is ten days old. If you are wanting a maternity session, you are in luck! I am looking to build my portfolio in that area and will be offering the first 3 moms to be to book a half price session.
Of course, all of this is customizable. Just ask if you don't see what you need! I also book a limited amount of weddings and price those individually. I also offer discounted engagement and bridal sessions to wedding clients and discount maternity sessions to newborn clients.
With any and every Olga Ford Photography session, you get a custom, creative and contemporary session experience. I love to go to your favorite locations. I want you to bring items that you treasure. I am here to help you plan your wardrobe to coordinate with everyone else and your location. All sessions include a consultation. We can meet, talk on the phone, text, e-mail, or whatever is best for you. The more we communicate, the better I can design your session to exceed your expectations. Oh, and speaking of design, I do that too. I can custom design cards, books, collages, and anything other product that I offer.
I think I've gone on long enough, so if you have any questions or would like to book just contact me! Also, don't forget about the newsletter if you want to be in on those Mini Session announcements.
