Mandy Wolf Photography Client Guide

 

Hello!  I'm Mandy!!!

 

If you are reading this, it means you are either thinking about hiring Mandy Wolf Photography to capture your family’s memories or you have already booked your  session with us!

Either way I’m excited about your session!

    Throughout this guide, you’ll find all the information you need to show you the complete Mandy Wolf Photography experience.  You’ll learn how to prepare for your session, what to expect, a general range on pricing (details at your consult) and fun client reveal night!  

 

Mandy Wolf Photography is a full service photography studio.

 Our goal is to make sure you have an amazing session and provide you with heirloom quality prints, wall art, and albums that will last a lifetime.

A non-refundable retainer of $200 is due at time of booking to reserve your session.
 


Petite Studio Session is $300
This includes a 30 minute studio portrait session and an 11x14 Heirloom Print.

 

Portrait Package is $700
This includes an hour session and $500 in product credit to use towards heirloom products. These sessions can be done on location or at the studio.  

 

 

 

 

Prior to your session, we will have an in-person consultation where we will talk about locations, outfit choice, hair and makeup (available add-on), and products that you are interested in for your home. We will meet either at the studio, a coffee shop, or you home to discuss details so I can better plan for your session to provide you with best experience and portraits.

The lightly edited images will be presented at the ‘Reveal Night” two or three weeks after your portrait session. At the reveal, we’ll work to create amazing products to showcase your entire session. Prints, wall art, heirloom albums and more, Mandy Wolf Photography has a wide range of products to meet all of your needs!

   Right now you might be thinking, “I want the digital files!”.  Don’t worry, I completely understand where you’re coming from.  I value digital files as much as you do (otherwise I wouldn’t have a stack of hard drives filled with precious family memories!).  Mandy Wolf Photography provides watermarked web-optimized digital files for online use for each image that is ordered as a print, and as a bonus, you will receive an app that contains the web-optimized digitals of the prints you ordered and can download the images from your phone or tablet. These photos are for online sharing and use only and contain no printing rights. With heirloom quality products and web-optimized digitals, you’ll get the best of both worlds. Higher resolution digital files with limited printing rights are available and you can get them for a lower price when they’re combined in a collection.

    So now it’s time to grab a cup of coffee and scroll through this client guide. Together, we’ll create an experience of a lifetime!

    

    


PLANNING YOUR SESSION

    

    Here are a few tips as we begin to plan your session.  Remember that I’m here with you through the whole thing so be sure to relax and let things flow!

  •        When we’re deciding on a location think about places you and your family LOVE and have the most fun.  This could be your backyard, the beach, a favorite park, in your kitchen baking cookies or if you want to take them at my studio, I have several acres of land that is usable for portraits! Wherever it is, we’ll make sure to capture your family enjoying themselves and having fun. If you want more traditional styled portraits, we can do that as well in the studio.
  •         When choosing outfits refer to the “What to Wear” portion of this guide and remember it’s likely you can choose right from your own closets! I offer design consultations on all sessions and will help you plan your outfits.

WHAT TO WEAR

    Deciding what to wear for your session can seem like a huge chore.  Following these simple tips will help you chose the perfect outfits for your upcoming session with ease!  Don’t forget to check your closet first!

  • DO- Choose a color scheme based on where you’d like to hang these pictures.  Ex. If you’re planning on a living room wall display and your living room is decorated in earth tones choose colors that will coordinate.
  • DON’T Match.  Leave the jeans and white t-shirts at home and instead choose a color scheme and coordinate.
  • DO- Layer.  The more layers the better.  Sweaters, scarves, jewlery, blazers layers create visual interest and add texture  throughout your pictures.  They’re a great addition.
  • DON’T Be afraid of patterns.  Plaids, polkadot, florals and stripes can be overwhelming when all paired together but mixing in a few patterns here and there are another great way to add some interest to you photo session.
  • DO- Pay attention to your shoes.  Shoes matter!  A pair of nike sneakers mixed in with cute boots and dress shoes can be an eye sore in your photos. Try to stick with neutral shoes for the whole family.
  • DON’T Wear logos.  As much as shoes can be an eye sore so can a big logo across a t-shirt.  Try to stear clear of sports or brand logos or sayings across the front of your shirt.  Again, this takes the attention away from the family and brings the eye right to the t-shirt.
  • DO- Stay comfortable! Especially for mom, pick something you love and build around that.  Wear something you’re comfortable sitting, standing, running and playing in! You’ll thank me later!

DON’T Over think it!  You want your family to look like your family so don’t stress to much about the outfits.
 Be sure to have fun with it!

 

If you still are not sure about outfits, I'll gladly help you coordinate outfits for you and your family.

 

 

 

AFTER YOUR SESSION

You’ve already had an amazing time at your session but now things are about to get even better!  Two or three weeks after your session we’ll have your reveal night (We’ll schedule this at the same time we schedule your session so you see the images as soon as possible!).  On your reveal night you’ll see the images for the first time.  It’s definitely something to get excited about!

        

        That night we can meet at my studio or I’ll come to your home (that’s right no babysitter and you can even stay in your jammies if you want!) or if you prefer, an agreed upon loction, and show you a custom slideshow with the images. After you’ve experienced the slideshow you’ll have some time to go through all of the images and take a look at some product samples.  Seeing everything in person will really give you a sense of what products are most important to you.  My favorites are albums, wall art, canvases, and Memory boxes!  

You’ll have plently of time to ask any questions, to hold up images to different walls in your own home to see what sizes will work best and enough time to pick out your favorites.  
 

        The collections on the following page have been put together to give you the absolute best quality products for the best value.  These collections are available for prepurchase only and must be paid in full at the time of booking. After this point, only products from a la carte will be available. No need to worry if the products in the offered collections don’t fit your needs, all products are available a la carte as well!

Purchasing credit to spend on the night of your reveal is another option and savings are offered at different brackets.
 

        The goal of the reveal night is to finalize your order so we can get your prints and products to you as soon as possible. To help make this smoother, it’s a great idea to take a look through all of the different products and collections so you can go into it with an idea of what might work best for you.  Once you’ve seen your images that may change but it’s always good to have an idea when we get started!

 

Print Collections start at $500 and A La Carte begins at $100.

Most clients invest between $1500 - $3000 in Heirloom products. Some clients invest much more and others invest as little as five hundred. With customized products and flexible payment plans, you can invest in your family's memories without stress and forever have those precious moments preserved for decades to follow.

Payment plans are available for orders over $1,000.

 

        When all the fun of the reveal night is over, if you pay that evening, you’ll have a short wait before you’ll have those images in your hands! If you choose the payment plan option, your order will be placed after final payment is received. When everything is in, we’ll schedule a time that I can hand deliver everything to make sure it gets to you safely! Installation of Wall Art is available at no additional charge! You won't have to worry about hanging those gorgeous portraits. When we schedule delivery, just let me know if you would like the art installed on the wall and I'll come prepared to hang your canvases or framed art for the whole family to enjoy.
