Tell me about your portrait sessions?
Rather on location or in studio, we will first conduct a free pre-shoot consultation to discuss your portrait needs. This consultation can take place in person or via Zoom. Oliphant Photo Company, LLC., requires all clients to sign a release. This allows us to promote our studio. During the consultation we'll take care all paper work and fees due. During this time we will also discuss wardrobe, location and the overall mood which you'd like to convey.
A $199 reservation fee is due at the time of booking your session. The fee reserves your date and session time. The reservation fee is non-refundable and is applied to the portrait package of your choosing.
Two weeks after your session. We will meet at the studio for your session reveal and in-person sales. Due to COVID-19, this reveal and sales session can be done virtually. Be prepared to pick your images on this day.
Your package will be delivered approximately 4-6 weeks after this meeting. Digital files are delivered via email within 48 hours after order completion.
