2. Q & A

June 2, 2009

WHAT IS A CONSULTATION APPOINTMENT?

It is a time for us to sit down with each other and design your senior session so that when the day comes we get to simply relax and have fun. This is when the anticipation and excitement really begins! We will relax and talk about what we can do to make your day all about YOU. I want to know everything about you, your hobbies, your family, your school, your sports, your friends, your style – EVERYTHING! We will look at samples of previous seniors and maybe get some ideas from them. You are even welcome and encouraged to bring magazine tear-outs of images that you love the look of. We will talk about clothes, styles, locations, and just about everything you can imagine. That way we get something that SCREAMS YOU! When your Session day arrives, we’ll have a plan so everything goes smoothly–which means LESS stress for the both of us. A Win Win situation for us both!

HOW MANY PROOFS WILL I GET TO CHOOSE FROM?

I do my very best to present 30-40 quality images for you to choose from! Sometimes there are more but never less than 30. I do reserve the right to use creative licensing in the final decision of which images to present to you. When you see your images I am certain that you will be thrilled with the choices!

WHAT KIND OF INVESTMENT DO MOST SENIORS MAKE?

Most of my clients invest anywhere from $300 to $1000 on their image collection

Remember: everyone’s needs are different – some spend a little more and some spend a little less. Just remember to get the images you want, enough to go around, and I encourage you, don’t buy more than you need, these images will be too awesome to just sit in a drawer!

DO YOU OFFER A PAYEMNT PLAN?

At Kennedy Photography we understand that Senior Pictures can get expensive. For any order over $300.00 we offer a 3-payment installment plan to help you facilitate the expense. First installment will be due at Image Viewing and Order Session. Each subsequent payment will be due monthly. Your images will arrive 4 days after final payment is made. Please note, if payment plan is used no current discounts will apply.

I’M SO EXCITED! WHEN DO I GET TO SEE MY IMAGES?

You will get to see your images at the Image Viewing and Order Session (approx 2 weeks after your photo shoot).  At this time we will discuss your needs and design a Custom Collection that will work for you. I may also present a few Senior Specialty products you may want or need. I am available at your Image Viewing and Order Session to offer you my professional suggestions as to the image choices and sizes that should work well for your needs. We will also have products that can be custom designed just for YOU. This is one of the BEST parts – so please have all decision making parties attend because this is where the orders are the decisions and orders are made.  Images can be put online for 3 days for out of town family members to view and order.

I CAN’T WAIT! WHEN DO I GET TO BRING EVERYTHING HOME?

Quality takes time, so please allow 2-3 weeks from your Image Viewing and Order Session. Custom designs will take longer. But it’s worth the wait! If an installment plan was chosen then your images will arrive 4 days after your final payment has been made.

DELIVERY OF IMAGES

When your image order has been paid in full, I will place your order. Once your images arrive I will call you and schedule a time to deliver your images or to have you pick them up.

WHAT ARE ALL THE APPOINTMENTS FOR?

Consultation Appointment

Session Fees are due if you decide that Lorrie Kennedy is the photographer you want to shoot your SENIOR Pictures (this will hold the date for your photo session) (this is a non-refundable retainer)

Image Viewing and Order Session

Time to see all of your images. Please bring all decision making parties with you!  This is the appointment where you will decide on which images you would like to order and you will also pay for your order at this time.  (accommodations are made for clients with out of town family that may need more time to order images).
