The White Wave Photography Experience
Have you had your portraits taken before and the disk or USB is sitting in a drawer somewhere? Have you been meaning to get those images printed and hung on the wall? Does this task seem overwhelming and too time consuming for you? Well, if you answered yes, I am here to help. White Wave Photography strives to make sure that you are getting those precious family memories out of a drawer and displayed for you and your family to cherish for years to come.
White Wave Photography is a full service boutique photography business. My goal is to make sure you not only have an amazing session that leaves you with fun memories but also to provide you with heirloom quality prints and products that will last a lifetime.
No more files hidden away in drawers for no one to see. About two weeks after your session you’ll have your reveal night where you’ll get to see all of your images for the first time. That night we’ll work to create amazing products to showcase your entire session. From custom collages and wall art to image boxes - White Wave Photography has a full range of products to meet all of your needs!
I’m guessing that right now you’re saying “But I want the digital files!”. Don’t worry I completely understand where you’re coming from. I value digital files as much as you do (otherwise I wouldn’t have a stack of hard drives filled with precious family memories!). White Wave Photography offers a create your own collection that include digital files along with the quality products for your family to enjoy. Doesn’t get much better than that! I am excited to begin this creative journey with you!
Planning Your Session
Are you dreading planning your session? Are you dreading trying to get all those kiddos to smile? As a mother of 3 kids (4 if you count my husband) believe me when I say, I know how you feel! It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the planning of the outfits, choosing the perfect location and keeping everyone happy long enough to at least look happy in the photos. It’s a good thing for you that all of those are my specialties!
Here are a few tips as we begin to plan your session. Remember that I’m here with you through the whole thing so be sure to relax and let things flow!
- When we’re deciding on a location think about places you and your family LOVE and have the most fun. This could be your backyard, the beach, or a favorite park! Wherever it is we’ll make sure to capture your family being your family in a natural way and having FUN!
- When choosing outfits refer to the “What to Wear” Style Guide and remember it’s likely you can choose right from your own closets!
- Stressed about convincing your child (or husband) to give the perfect smile? Don’t worry, I’ve got it covered. The best thing you can do to help make this happen is to relax and let me handle it. I pride myself on taking the time to get to know your family, to relax, play and have fun. During this time I’ll grab the fun candids but also convince your children that they like me enough to smile for those perfect shots!
- Keep the bribery at home! Most likely we won’t need it and if we do, I come prepared! I’ll have a special something for each of your children for after the session...if they’re not cooperating that usually does the trick!
After the Session
You’ve already had a blast at your session but now things are about to get even better! Two weeks after your session we’ll have your reveal night (we’ll schedule this at the same time we schedule your session to make sure you see your images as soon as possible!). On your reveal night you’ll see all of your images for the first time. It’s definitely something to get excited about!
That night I’ll come to your home (that’s right no babysitter and you can even stay in your jammies if you want!) and show you a custom slideshow with your images. I will also bring along prints, wall art and products that you touch and feel.
After you’ve experienced the slideshow you’ll have some time to go through all of your images and take a look at all of the product samples. Seeing everything in person will really give you a sense of what products are most important to you. My favorites are framed collages and the signature albums (because I can never decide on which images to choose)!
You’ll have plenty of time to ask any questions, to hold up images to different walls in your own home to see what sizes will work best and enough time to pick out your favorites.
The INVESTMENT GUIDE outlines all of the products and services that I offer and has been put together to give you the absolute best quality product for the best value. The goal of the reveal night is to finalize your order so we can get your prints and products to you as soon as possible. To help make this stress free it’s a great idea to take a look through all of the different products and collections so you can go into it with an idea of what might work best for you. Once you’ve seen your images that may change but it’s always good to have an idea when we get started!
When all the fun of the reveal night is over, you’ll have a short wait before you’ll have those images in your hands! Digital files purchased will be made available within 24 hours and you can expect to have your prints and products in hand within 2-4 weeks. When everything is in we’ll schedule a time that I can hand deliver everything to make sure it gets there safely!
