About Your Session

Woohoo! You’re scheduling a portrait session with Amy Clifton Keely Photography!

Before your session…
…we will email, text, and make sure that we’re on the same page regarding expectations for the session. I want to make sure that you are happy with the finished product, and I believe that the better we communicate ahead of time, the more likely that is to happen! I will ask you to complete a questionnaire that helps me get to know you and prepare for your session, and it will also begin to get you thinking about the special relationships that you share. Prepare to celebrate these relationships during your session!

During your session…
…we will have a great time!! I will casually pose you in a variety of poses and settings, making sure that you are comfortable and in a location with beautiful light. I will give you as much or as little posing direction as you want, but my ultimate goal is to step back and capture you being “you!” I have lots of fun silly games as well as deeper questions to bring out your family’s real expressions, and to help you experience real emotions during your session. I am an observer by nature, and my photography style is very “fly on the wall.” I will be sure to get your Christmas-card-photo with everyone looking at the camera, but I do love those moments when you let your guard down and start giggling or snuggling together. I thrive on positive feedback, so you will hear me squealing and saying “I-LOVE-THIS!!!” throughout your session. (Those are good signs!) If your session includes children, know that I will involve them in some of the decision-making during your portraits to get their cooperation…and I may bring a treat! A typical session lasts around an hour, but we will shoot until we both feel like we’ve gotten what you’re looking for.

After your session…
…I hope that you will look back on your experience as a time that you enjoyed celebrating your relationships with each other! I will post a Sneak Peek of a few photos on my blog and/or facebook (with your prior permission) within a few days to a week, and your entire session should be ready for viewing in 2-3 weeks. When your portraits are ready, we will get together at my home studio to catch up, watch your slideshow and hopefully shed happy tears, view sample products, and place your order with a savings of 10%. Please come to this “Viewing Party” with a wish list of items and an idea of how and where you want to display your photos. Depending on the nature of your order, you should receive your products within 2-4 weeks. If you aren’t ready to order during your Viewing Party, no problem! You may order at any time, but the 10% savings is only available the day of your Viewing Party.

After your order comes in…
…please stay in touch! It is a privilege to observe your family’s story, and I genuinely enjoy keeping up with my clients-turned-friends.

I can’t wait to chat with you—let’s do this!
