 General Housekeeping

-Payment is due on the day of your shoot and can be made by cash, cheque, or through email money transfer.  If you are writing a cheque, it can be made out to Ali Lauren Creative Services.

– Turnaround time for your prints and flash drive of edited images is approximately four weeks.  I will email you to let you know when it’s on its way to your mailbox:)

-Minor editing of blemishes etc. is included in your session pricing.  Please note an additional desktop publishing charge may be applicable for extensive edits and these will only be performed upon client’s request.

-Images given to clients are not, under any circumstances, to be used for personal profit or promotion or to be used in business or personal portfolios, contests etc. unless specific permission is given to said client.  You are more than welcome to share your images on social media sites, but a credit to Ali Lauren Creative Services must accompany the images.  Images may not be cropped, edited, or altered in any way.  By booking in for a photo session with Ali Lauren, you are agreeing to these terms.

-If the weather doesn’t look like it is going to cooperate (and, being in Saskatchewan, this is often a reality) I just ask for 24 hours notice to reschedule your shoot for another day.

What to Wear?

– Wear clothes you feel great in!  If you feel good, it will photograph as such.

– Solid colors tend to photograph better than high-contrast prints.  Please try to avoid bold logos.

– For couples and families, your outfits should coordinate/complement each other, but don’t feel the need to get too matchy matchy.  Outfits in the same tones (either warm or cool) photograph great.  If you plan on wearing the same color, try doing so by choosing pieces in varying hues or shades.  Google and Pinterest have a wealth of ideas if you need some inspiration!  I’ve created a family session clothing inspiration board here: http://www.pinterest.com/alilauren11/what-to-wear-family/  and a couples session clothing inspiration board here: http://www.pinterest.com/alilauren11/what-to-wear-engagementcouples/

– Most importantly, be yourself!  If TOMS are your thing, base your outfits around that.  If pink is your signature color, definitely work it into your outfit!  Ultimately, this shoot is about you and it’s these little details that make the photos uniquely yours.  *Please note, if you have a certain look in mind, we can find a location to coordinate your style/outfit choice as well so please do not hesitate to ask me about this.

– I’m all about the details, so please be aware that your hands etc. may be featured in a photograph, or two!

Most Important!

– Have fun and interact with each other!  It’s my job to capture you as a couple or family, so show me your personalities.  This shoot is all about you, so show me who you are.

– Families : Get your children laughing!  Play with them.  Please feel free to bring along a favorite book, toy, bubbles, etc.  You interacting as a family is what I want to capture:)

– Couples : Flirt, laugh, smile, cuddle, play, hug, kiss, love!  You’re in love and I want to capture it!

– I always give guidance for poses, body placement, etc. but from there, I encourage interaction between you and your family or you and your partner.  It is my job to find the light and pose you, all I need you to do is have fun and enjoy yourselves:)
