Around 1 or 2 weeks after your session, I’ll send you a link to your online gallery where you can view the proof images from your session. After viewing your proofs, you will be able to purchase a digital collection of your choice.
About another week or two later you will have your wonderful fully edited photographs to cherish forever!
Once your date is finally here, We will have a blast taking pictures! There will be lots of laughing, smiling and simply having a good time. I want your session to be stress-free. I don't want you to worry about what to do because I am there to coach you every step of the way through the session. I do all of my beach sessions one or two hours before sunset. This is when the lighting is best.
As soon as I receive your session fee we will get started planning your session. I will send you a welcome email with the fun details of your session. The perfect wardrobe is so important to achieving the right look for your portraits. I know this can be a stressful process, so I love helping my clients select their outfits! Over the years I've learned what style and color photograph best on the beach to give your portraits a timeless look. These are portraits that you will treasure for many years to come... I love to create timeless images that are classic and won't look dated years from now.
The session will begin with group shots, then we will do poses with the kids (before we lose their attention!) Next we'll focus on individual family photos; kids, siblings, couples, etc. Lastly we'll move on to fun candid photos! Kids running around, grand/parents playing with the kids etc. We will have fun!
A Print Release is a form that you will get with your downloaded images purchased. It allows you to print as many of your photos where ever you want, and you no longer need to go through me to get your prints. However, I am not responsible for any printing not done by my own lab. I use labs that provide quality printing that you may not get elsewhere. I highly recommend printing through my lab. The pictures are fantastic!
If cancelation is due to weather and you choose not to reschedule, then you will get your deposit refunded. I do understand that emergencies happen and things come up. I am willing to work with you on rescheduling a session. But I do ask that you provide me with at least 48 hours notice of a cancellation. If you decide to cancel and not reschedule another session, you forfeit your deposit. If you’d like to reschedule a session, it must be within a month of your first scheduled session which you canceled.
"We had an amazing photoshoot with Maggie! Absolutely love how much care she puts into her photos and for families to have the best time. She helped our girls to be so comfortable with just having fun that they did so good with the photos and it made for a very memorable experience. Highly recommend her!"
"Maggie is simply the BEST! I cannot say enough about how AMAZING our photo session went. I needed these photos for work and instead of it feeling like a chore, it was so much fun. I felt so comfortable. I went with ideas of what I wanted and with Maggie's expertise and creative eye, she knocked it out of the park! If you are looking for a reliable, creative, patient, and killer photographer, do yourself a favor, and call Maggie with Maggie Collins Photography. You will not be disappointed."
"I recently had photos done of my 6 year old and I with Maggie and it was such an awesome experience working with her! She made my son and I feel so comfortable during the shoot and the pictures she took were absolutely amazing!! Even in the middle of a busy holiday season she went above and beyond to get my photos back to me for our Christmas cards!!! Anyone wanting family photos done, I would highly recommend, I will definitely be using her again! If I could give her more than 5 stars I would! Truly professional, responsive, kind and the pictures she took exceeded my expectations!"
"Maggie was wonderful to work with! Her pictures are amazing and we will treasure them forever! We had 17 family members and she knew exactly how to capture the best beach shots of us all. I highly recommend her for any family on vacation or residents who want beautiful photos."
