Before, During, and After Your Sitting with Kiran
Before the Sitting
The first thing we'll discuss is what are you wanting to show from the sitting? What is it that you want to capture for the years to come and HOW do you want to remember it? With a grouping of wall portraits that you can enjoy every day while you have your morning coffee, with an album that can be handed down from generation to generation? Once we know what will make these images meaningful for you, we will work together to choose a location and wardrobe to accomplish that.
When we select a date, you'll be asked to fill out a quick client questionaire and contract and submit your sitting fee which covers the time at the session and acts as a retainer to reserve your date.
Kiran has an in-home studio in McKinney Texas where we can achieve a variety of looks indoors, including grey, white, black, and multiple coloured backgrounds as well as painted canvas backgrounds for a refined, elegant touch. Studio sittings are great when combined with outdoor locations to add variety. This is a great option during mid-day when the light is not ideal for outdoor shooting.
O n Location Sittings
Outdoor Sittings allow us to put the beauty of your family in a context of the beauty of nature and the vintage style of Collin County and surrounding areas. We generally try to utilize the time close to sunrise and sunset when the light is low on the horizon creating a lovely, romantic mood. This timing may not be ideal for families of young children, especially depending on the time of year.
Kiran has several awesome locations that he can suggest during the consultation stage before your sitting. The falling leaves that we have in Texas are the most popular time of the year for sittings, so book early to ensure your spot!
During the Sitting
Expect to enjoy yourself and just be real, letting your own and your family's personalities show. Kiran will position you and give you subtle prompts and direction to help you look your best. We will not tell you to sit and say cheese!
After the Sitting:
In the weeks following your sitting or event, I will select and prepare the best of the best images to tell the story of you to present to you.
The Viewing & Ordering Appointment
During the viewing & ordering appointment you will be able to experience your images for the first time in a slide show set to music and we help answer any questions you may have throughout the selection process.
You will be able to touch and feel the products we offer as well as see realistic mockups of what your images will look like on the walls of your very own home using our specialized software. This is a great opportunity to decorate your home with personal, meaningful, aesthetic, and narrative art work that increases in value exponentially as the years fly by. We love to help you select the perfect portraits that best fit your space.
