Before the Session
The choice of a photographer to capture important Life moments is a huge decision, and I understand you have most likely spent many hours on the selection of just the right person to help capture these memories. When someone decides to go with Arlyne VanHook Photography, I take this very seriously. Prior to the session, I will consult with you about what you expect from this experience, get to know you better so I can capture your Life, and talk with you about potential locations and clothing options. Appointments are available Monday through Sunday. I prefer to work with natural light and in natural settings, so the best time for sessions is in the morning or late afternoon.
During the Session
The typical session is scheduled for one hour on location. As you might have noticed from my work , I don't go for posed, or as I like to call them "say-cheese" portraits; rather, I focus on capturing natural expressions that best reflect your Life. That being said, I allow for time to get loose and relax at the beginning of the session, seeking opportunities to explore and play. From my experience, it usually takes about 20 minutes to fully relax.
After the Session
I am a mother too, and I understand that waiting for images can be one of life's most challenging times!! I will make every effort to edit your images so you can see them as soon as possible; however, please understand that it takes time to edit your images in a way that maximizes your investment for a Life-long treasure. That being said, all of your images will be viewable within 3 to 4 week s after your session. I utilize a password-protected online gallery to deliver images to my clients. After they have been uploaded, you will be notified via email with instructions on how to access the images.
