This welcome guide was designed to walk you through the experience of a professional, full-service portrait session and to introduce you to the exciting options Tanna Marie Photography has to offer.
The art of photography is much more than just producing pictures on paper. It is about capturing your story, memories, and emotions on camera. It is also for you to look at and share with friends and family over the years, and to cherish and hang the artwork on your wall for generations to come. In our busy lives, it is so important to take some time every now and then to capture the unique milestones in life.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is truly getting to know you and your family, so I can create portraits that reflect your families' personal story.
I absolutely love what I do. It's my passion and always has been. I love my job and pour every inch of hard work into shooting, editing, and producing a unique collection of beautiful images for you.
As you are scrolling through this welcome guide if you have any questions at all feel free to contact me.
It is an honor and a joy to meet so many families and I look forward to working with yours in the future. Warmly,

WHAT TO EXPECT
This may be your family's first time working with a professional photographer. If so, let me reassure you that I am here to work with you to make your experience as memorable as possible.
I send out a Questionnaire and once filled out, allows us to truly make your session unique to you.
I also schedule pre-session consultations in person but, can do skype or phone ones too if not local. This gives me the opportunity to get to know you, your desires, and preferences for your session and to get an idea of what type of artwork may suit your needs. I also like to discuss the things in the questionnaire and go over any questions you may have for me.
After booking, we will go over location, wardrobe, colors you want to be included as well as an inspiration board.
You will also receive a welcome packet with all the finer details, faqs, tips, and checklist to be used for your session. This will be a personalized guide you can refer back to at any time.
I will also include a list of all products and prints with descriptions to help you choose which is best for you and your home.
On the day of your session, we'll meet at the agreed time and location and get the fun started!
I encourage the Mammas to relax and let us treat you for the day and make you feel like a queen or goddess through our session experience. If your children are involved or this is a family session I also encourage you and your children to interact, play and have fun during the session so I can capture the natural bond between you and your family, plus we can get a few posed shots as well. I love the natural unposed moments as they show genuine smiles and laughter compared to posed photographs. Once the session has concluded we will set an appointment up for an in-person viewing session. The appointment will occur 1 week after the session
AFTER Sit back and relax! I will be hard at work editing your images so they are perfectly presented to you.
Finally, we will meet again for your in-person viewing appointment where you'll have the opportunity to review the proofs and make final artwork selections. This truly is the most amazing part of the process. You will see your photos come to life in a choice of heirloom albums, gallery wrapped canvases and mounted prints in sizes perfect for your family's home. I will also post favorite web sized photos of your session on my Facebook page that you can tag and share with family and friends.
