We'll find out about your expectations and let you help you choose the package that is right for you. We will also talk about products that are available and any specific ideas that you have. Ideally, the consultation will take place in your home so that we can get an idea of the kind of artwork that will work best. Consultations can take place at ESP studios or on the phone and last about 30 minutes.
Most sessions take place at Erica Salmon Photography's home studio just east of Indianapolis in Greenfield . For families, we will get a few poses with the whole group as well as some individual and smaller group images (just the kids, just mom and dad etc.) For kids we will get a variety of images using several backdrops and outfits. Before you leave, I'll ask you to fill out a client information and model release form. This just lets me know the best way to keep in touch with you, and gives me permission to post your images online, use them for competitions etc. I'll also take just a few minutes to show you some samples of the different products we offer and be sure you have a price list before you leave.
A couple of weeks after your session we'll have you out to the studio to see your images. Sit back, relax and watch a video with the images from your session. After you've seen them all, we'll talk a little more about exactly what you need and go through each image to decide if it's one you just can't live without. We work hard to make sure that there won't be any surprises (other than you amazing images) and that you have all the information you need to make a decision at this point. Please make sure everyone who will be part of the decision is present at the preview. This session usually lasts anywhere from 45-90 minutes.
