CLIENT SESSION GUIDE

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE BOOKING A SESSION

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi there, I’m Sarah Davids, a local portrait photographer in Pitt Meadows.  Thank you for your interest in booking a session with me! I am both honoured and humbled to be considered – it is not lost on me and there are many talented local photographers in the Pitt Meadows area. If you haven’t already you can check out the portfolio section or view more recent work on Facebook and Instagram.

I am so excited to share my unique approach to photography that extends well beyond just the photoshoot to ensure that you receive the highest quality service and support every step of the way. Together we’ll design your perfect session, culminating in the best part – choosing your favourite images and deciding on the final printed products that will be proudly displayed in your home. 

I am ecstatic to provide exceptional beginning to end service for my clients and below you’ll find all of the information you need about the session process, available products and pricing. If you’re ready to book your consultation, let’s get started!

SESSION INFO

Whether you’re looking for a stunning piece of wall art, a fine art album or a legacy folio box, Sarah Davids will guide you through your product choices to help you choose how to perfectly display and preserve your portraits for your family to enjoy for years to come.  

Investing in beautiful legacy portraits is something your children and grandchildren will one day thank you for. It is not only a gift to yourself, but a lasting memory that will be cherished by future generations.

Review the session info below and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions about dates, product info, outfit advice or anything else!

 

HOW THE PORTRAIT PROCESS WORKS

1

CONSULTATION

Depending on your needs, this can either be done in studio or on the phone. This is our chance to get to know each other and we’ll discuss everything for your shoot including how you’d like to be photographed and when, what to wear, plus review the products and pricing in detail.

THE PORTRAIT SHOOT

This is the fun part! If outside, we’ll take a walk and decide on the perfect location and if in studio, I’ll throw on some music and jump right in. You’re likely not a professional model so I’ll be there every step of the way guiding you into natural poses. It’s my job to make you (and your family) look good, it’s your job to trust me and have fun!

3

VIEWING AND ORDERING

We’ll schedule your reveal for 1-2 weeks after your shoot, where you’ll have a chance to review your portraits in person or via Zoom. Sample portfolio boxes, wall art and albums will be available to help you make your selections. All products come with the matching digital files for sharing with family and friends.
