Welcome to our office in Clear Lake! Sparkling Bay Photography is a full service studio, meaning I will meet with you in person to plan the session that is unique to you and to help you choose and design your wall art, albums and graduation announcements.
BUY ONLY WHAT YOU LOVE. Before purchasing any images, you get to see them and choose the ones you want to own. We do not charge you for the gallery sight unseen, with the images you may or may not love.
1. Pre-Session Consultation
After you have looked at my work on social media, read the information on our website and decided we might be a good fit, we schedule an in-person meeting with you and your parent. We will chat about your ideal session, setting (this is when I suggest various locations), what to wear and how many outfits, professional makeup if desired, and plan all the details of your session. We also go over the Pricing Guide in detail before you book.
2. Photo session
This is the big day! Your session will last approximately 1.5 hours, usually during the “golden hour” just before the sunset. I shoot in outdoor settings using available natural light.
3. ordering appointment
We meet again within a week or so to allow you to view your gorgeous photos on the screen (a fun slide show that our customers love) and select your favorites: the images you wish to see as wall art, in albums, gift prints, digital files and other products. All prints we provide are high quality pieces printed by the labs only available to professional photographers.
You are notified when your print order is received from the lab and ready for pickup, usually within 10 business days. Your digital images for sharing on social media are available within one day after the ordering session, via an online gallery.
The session fee is $150 and includes:
- Session consultation and design;
- On-location session time;
- Multiple outfit changes;
- Multiple locations within your selected area;
- An in-studio session reveal and ordering appointment.
The session fee is non-refundable and does not include any print or digital photographs. You have an opportunity to choose and purchase your photos during the ordering appointment. The starting investment for collections is $485; mounted prints are $25 each; your full digital gallery (30 images) is available as an add-on to your prints at $450. Here's the best part: to make sure clients get exactly what they want, and nothing that they don't, we offer the "Build Your Own Collection" approach. It means YOU choose what combination of print and digital products will go into your package.
