Behind the Scenes: Selection Session

April 30, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

About a week after our photo session together, we’ll meet up to show you your edited images and select which you’d like to keep. While I might cull down the number for your review (e.g., removing duds like the half-blinks I’m semi-famous for) you pick your final pix. 

I do this “old school.”

I’ll pull up your proofs in Microsoft Photos on my laptop, and show you an example of what the final fully-retouched image might look like. Then I turn over control to you to look through them. For any you like I’ll write down the image number on a pad of paper with my pen (yep – “old school”). 

If we need to shorten the list (for a folio box rather than an album, for instance… or a wall art cluster), I’ll pull those photographs out to a separate file, and we’ll go through them again… as many times as necessary so you get exactly what you want. I do not send you an overwhelming gallery and leave you to pick these out by yourself. If you're stuck choosing, I will help you; I'll let you know which I like better and why. 

When we have your final list, you’ll pay your invoice and I’ll start the final retouching process and get your products ordered!

Please note: once products are requested from my professional lab and/or digital files are delivered, the order cannot be canceled.


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, and let me know when and 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?
