Lifestyle Portrait Sessions with A.Fogarty | Maine Photographer
June 16, 2018
Stop waiting for the perfect moment. Your life is beautiful and deserves to be captured. The big moments, the small ones, and all the in between. At A.Fogarty Photography, I offer portrait sessions for families, newborns, maternity, seniors, couples and more. I enjoy capturing life at every stage.
Whether you get your photograph taken annually or have never had professional photographs taken, I want to walk you through the process of working with A.Fogarty Photography. I hope by better explaining the experience and the services I offer you can determine if I'm a good fit to be your photographer.
First of all, finding the right fit is important. There are so many photographers out there (equally as beautiful) but I encourage you to find someone you can connect with and shares a similar aesthetic to you.
Upon starting photography I knew I wanted to photograph people. Their emotions and interactions - their stories. My approach to portrait sessions is natural and organic. No crazy posing or props. I prefer to capture you where you are most comfortable - in the familiarity of your home, or at the beach with your toes in the sand, or maybe running wild through a field of flowers.
I want to photograph you in a place that you can laugh, play, snuggle, and be still - because when you are comfortable, you can be yourself - and that's when true beauty is captured.
Each session is unique to the client and I do my best to help create a vision that truly represents who you are.
Portrait Collection Includes:
1.5 hours of shooting
online proofing gallery
25 edited digital images via digital download
rights to print
outfit changes & additional people
Details & What to Expect
After booking, I work closely with you to design a vision. I will help you choose your location if you do not already have one in mind and provide inspiration for outfit and style choices.
Two weeks after our session you will receive an online proofing gallery of 100-200 images where you will be able to select the 25 (or more) images you would like to be edited. You may not keep/download the un-edited images in the proofing gallery. After you select your images, I will edit your favorites in both color and black & white and deliver them to you via high resolution digital download. You will receive rights to print these images. At this time, A.Fogarty Photography does not offer printing services but will refer you to high quality affordable sites. You can expect a 4 week turn around time, from the date of the session, to receiving your final images.
I wanted to take time to explain my process because I'm sure it differs from other photographers. I love allowing my clients the freedom to select the images they would like to be edited. I have found my clients enjoy this because then they receive their most favorite images and the ones they like the best. They also have the ability to purchase more images after seeing the proofing gallery if they fall in love with more than 25.
Let this blog post serve as your reminder to step in front of the camera. To document your life. For yourself - for your family. Because I believe you should honor and celebrate whatever stage of life you're in.
My goal is to create images that are as timeless and authentic as your family's story.
