What is a session with JL Photography like?

Pre-Session to Ordering

It is my desire to offer not just great quality photos that capture the essence of an individual I a moment in time but to make the entire experience smooth and personalized! JL Photography uses a business platform offer our clients optimal service and care from booking to receiving your product. You will receive an email within a week of booking your session. This email contains a great deal of information and a way to keep in touch with the click of a button.

What is a session like? To put it short and sweet…FUN!! I love photography, always have. My goal is to make it as enjoyable for those in front of the lens as it is for me. Believe me; I know how difficult this can be. I am married to a man who HATES and I mean HATES having his picture taken. For the record, this doesn’t stop me. He will typically say, “I am glad you caught that moment” or “that is my new favorite.” I will do what is needed to get THAT shot.

I LOVE natural light but lets face it we live in South Dakota so this isn't possible all year 'round. Our studio offers 2800 square feet of prop filled fun! If the studio scene isn't ideal for you then an in-home shoot might be just the ticket. These create such a unique and personal touch to photos that you will cherish forever.

Personalization and Customization: All sessions include a 30 minute planning meeting to make possible your vision. This can take place in person or over the phone, whatever is most convenient for you. It is best to have this meeting 3-4 weeks before your session, if possible, so that if I need I can special order or design items needed for your session. I also like to discuss what you plan to wear and how to make the most out of your color scheme of complimenting colors. This doesn’t mean that you all have to match; rather, the outfits colors coordinate and compliment each other. If you are looking for ideas use the internet for inspiration and then bring your ideas with during our planning session. I love taking these ideas and making them your own image. You can find me on there also jlphotographysd to see some ideas I have pinned. If you are looking for a unique look I would recommend heading to our of the great local shops in Aberdeen: Karisma Boutique (men, woman and children), Boho's Closet (women), Main Stream Boutique (women) , Arrow Boutique (women), Farmers Wife Boutique (woman) and Li'l Bean (children) for unique clothing options.

Payment: Payment for the session is due at time of booking (special occasions, i.e... weddings, may have different payment options). The final payment is due on the date of your event. Payment for all products is due at the time of ordering.

Immediate Viewing: You have the option of immediately viewing your images the day of your session. You can select your photos in studio or through an online format (which is only available for 1 week). Once you have selected your photos they will then be scrutinized by the photographer for the best quality pictures and 20-25 photos (for portrait sessions - specialty sessions photo numbers very) will be selected for edits.

Edited Proofs: Your final edited proofs will be available online 2-3 weeks after you have finished making your selection of favorites. During peek season (typically June - October) your photos may take longer so it could be 2-6 weeks. Your photos will be available for viewing at www.pixieset.com for two weeks after posting. To ensure consistent and timely product delivery it is recommended that you take no longer that 2 weeks to place your order. Another wonderful option that is included in your session fee is a free meeting to order and customize ( as you feel fit) your photo products.

Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I love capturing life's moments and the joy of everyday. Being the mother of two small children I have no shortage of photographic moments.

 I am a high energy - active from beginning to end - photographer. I will work hard to get those genuine and story telling smiles, past clients will attest to this! So, if you are looking for a serious photographer, I am not it. If you are looking for great pictures and an unforgettable professional experience, you are looking in the right place.

 I am blessed with a loving husband, two wonderful children, and a caring family who supports me in everything I do. You can imagine that all of this brings me immense joy!! It is because of those many blessings and joys that I decided to turn my passion into a business and hope to share that joy with all who I encounter.
