What to Expect - Waddy J Portraiture and Fine Art Photography, Monroe, LA

What to Expect

    When you call to schedule your appointment we will also set a time to get together 1-2 weeks before the session ( Pre-Session Consultation ). This meeting and your valuable input will help me formulate a custom design plan suited just for you and your vision.

    You have several very important decisions to make before the day of your photography session and I want to be there to help you every step of the way. If you choose to be photographed in your home or an outdoor location instead of my studio, I will arrange a time to visit the space. If you decide on an outdoor location, the time of day is crucial to capturing beautiful images. I prefer morning or late afternoon for outdoor sessions.

    We will go over clothing choices, hair, makeup and special items that you may want to incorporate in your portrait. It is important for me to know what type of images appeal to you and what you may want to do with them. I will have examples on hand for you to see and you in turn can bring pictures or examples of images that you like. Do you want a formal portrait or something more casual? Is there a particular place in your home that you want to hang the finished piece? I am happy to come look at the space and offer suggestions.

    Portrait sessions usually run between 1-2 hours. New born and maternity sessions can run up to 3 hours. Business/Corporate sessions typically run 30 minutes to 1 hour.

My shooting style is low key and fun. I take as much time as we need in order to get great images. It’s my job to make everything perfect for you. There is no extra charge if your session takes longer than first anticipated.

    Two weeks following your session you will receive an email with a link to your private gallery to share with friends and family. The gallery will be on line for 2 weeks to view and make selections. After you have made your choices call and make an appointment to discuss your chosen images and place your order.

It generally takes 2-3 weeks to receive your finished works of art. I will keep your images on file for one year.

    The session fee is due at the time of your pre-consultation meeting. This fee is non-refundable. I will gladly reschedule your session if you are unable to attend due to a family emergency or illness Please contact me a week in advance to change a session date or time.


    I guarantee my work and will reschedule another session at no charge if you are not satisfied with the results.
