What to expect from your session at Picture-Man Studios
Your photo session will be relaxed, fun and enjoyable for the whole family. We love to capture how children and families naturally interact and enjoy each other. During an average session, we spend about 15 to 20 minutes taking photos. The best advice I can give you is to make sure you’re well rested on the day of your photo session (that goes for kiddos too!), eat something and stay well hydrated. Believe it or not, bad moods can show up in pictures! The better you feel, the better you’ll look. In the Camera Room: When you arrive at our studio our professional photographers will offer you one on one attention to best capture all your photo needs. To begin, the photographer will walk through all your portrait needs and go over your pre-session questionnaire that you filled out online(if you did not that is fine we will go over this with you in studio). If you're not sure what you want in your portrait, don't worry our photographers can help you choose your background, a studio prop or the best way to incorporate any props you brought from home and any other ideas you have. While in your session, the photographer will guide you through a variety of different poses and looks. Your in camera room session will lasts no more than 20 minutes.The photographer will take a variety of images on two backgrounds(if possible). For larger groups there will be break-downs of the familes, silblings, paerents and any others that you request.
What's Next? After your in camera room session the photographer will ask you to be seated in the waiting area for about 10 minutes while your images are prepared for viewing. You can expect to see a variety of enhancements such as black and white, vignettes, text and collages
Time to View: You will review your portrait images at our viewing station with a studio team member. If you are bringing children with you, feel free to bring a small snack or toy to entertain them so that you can leisurely view and select your portraits. We offer a selection of special effects including traditional, black and white or sepia. We offer a high and low resolution digital CD option to print and share with family and friends. Placing Your Order: The studio associate will assist you in finding the best portrait options. Once you have completed your order, it will be sent to our printing facilities for high quality processing. If you would like same day prints please ask your sales associate for pricing. Your portraits will arrive in our studio for pickup approximately 5-10 business days after your visit. Larger prints, framing and specialty products may have a longer processing time. Need your portraits sooner? For a small fee you may want to expedite the process by shipping them directly to your home.
