Why Shoot with Maggie: Image Selection Assistance

September 20, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Some photographers will upload images to an online gallery for you to review “at your leisure.” What I’ve found, however, is that my clients are often overwhelmed when faced with reviewing dozens of photos. It’s hard to make clear decisions, especially if there are similar pictures to choose from. “Analysis paralysis” sets in, and your experience is no longer relaxing and pain-free!

I’m here to help you enjoy getting your picture taken, and that includes helping you select the best images from your session. I’ll generally narrow down your gallery to 10-20 photographs from each set, depending on what/how we’re shooting (e.g., traditional headshots will have fewer, but a dancing sequence will have more), then we’ll meet and go through them together in person. As we view your images, I’ll track the ones you like, the ones you don’t, and the “maybes.” If there are two similar photos, I’ll share what I like best about each, and give you my expert opinion… but the choice is ultimately yours.

We’ll also work through what to do with them once you’ve picked them out: Wall gallery? Album? Gift prints for your family? Check out “product info” keywords on this blog for some great ideas, including this post.


Ready for some great photographs? Let’s get to know each other over coffee (or smoothies… or milkshakes…), and talk about celebrating your life’s true beauty in images you love. You can reach me at [email protected] or (434) 226-0365. You can also schedule a consultation at https://calendly.com/maggietakespix; pick a time convenient for you, and let me know where you'd like to meet!

My Promise: Together, we will create amazing photos you’ll want to share. How do you want to be photographed?
