What Happens When You Book a Session with Madison Kelly Photography?
The entire custom portraiture experience takes place in three different meetings. These include your Pre-Session Consultation, your Session, and your Ordering Appointment. A signed contract and payment of your retainer for your session fee is required to book your session.
Once your session is booked, we will set up a complementary pre-session consultation where we will get to know you better and discuss what you want from your session. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service, and a commitment to the creation of unique art for your home. We will discuss your goals and your style, along with colors to create a session that complements you and your home. Great portraits begin with a great relationship, and sharing your style and discussing where you plan on hanging your wall art will allow us to plan your session to fit you. If planning a newborn session, we will discuss colors to make sure any canvases or wall art will match your nursery or home beautifully. If taking outdoor portraits, we will discuss locations and what to wear. This is the time to let me know what is important to you, and for me to style your session to meet your needs.
Sessions at the Studio or On Location
Full length studio sessions take place in my studio, located in New Albany, Ohio, where I can keep the temperature nice and warm and comfortable while allowing access to all of my blankets and props. I work with controlled studio lighting and a large assortment of custom props and set designs. The studio provides a fun, relaxed environment where you can sit back and relax while documenting these special milestones and memories, no matter what the weather! Studio appointments are perfect for maternity, newborn, and babies under 1 year. Newborn sessions last approximately 2-3 hours to allow time for snuggling and feeding. Milestone sessions last approximately 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.
When the weather is warmer, we can meet outside for children or family sessions at one of Central Ohio’s scenic parks, fields, or urban locations for some amazing and unique images. Outdoor sessions last approximately 1 – 1.5 hours. Outdoor sessions are scheduled in the last two hours before sunset for beautiful soft lighting.
The Ordering Appointment
This is the fun part! We will help you sort through your images and make final decisions on what will look best with your decor. We will show you actual sizes and pair images together to create a stunning album or wall gallery. We specialize in wall galleries and custom albums, and can help you decide what is the best fit for your home and family. We can also choose your birth announcements at this time. Let us do the work for you! If you are choosing digital images, you will leave with them at the ordering appointment.
