The Value of A Session

Diana Podach editing and running the business is the value of a session

No matter what the session is, there is more to a photo session than one thinks. It’s more than just showing up the day of, smiling for photos and then receiving them a few weeks later. It’s the time, energy and thought process that I personally put into each session (the value), that sometimes people forget about.

A session truly starts the minute the decision is made to schedule with me. Whether that’s an email, text or a phone call…THAT’s when it starts. From there, that’s when the fun begins! We then conquer the when, where and what time works for the two of us. I get a lot of, “I have no idea where we should take our family photos!” Perfectly fine, let me assist you! I have taken photos in so many different locations and cities. I would be more than willing to assist you in that process!

After we have your session scheduled and you are in my calendar, I normally will not bug you until about 2 weeks before. I may shoot you a simple text or a friendly email just reminding you about the day of and answering any other questions you may have. 

The next step is the session. The. Best. Part. For me at least 😉 At the session I will work my butt off to get a toddler to crack a smile, or a dog to look at the camera. I will jump up and down for the attention of an infant or stand in a manure pen (please warn me 😉😂) to get the PERFECT angle. After the session is complete, I will get them edited and returned back to you within three weeks. (*Please be respectful as I have a full time job on top of this business and a small family of my own.)

Regardless of what the session is…..I LOVE shooting. Weddings, families, seniors, children and maternity…..they all have ONE thing in common: memories. That’s why I do this job, I do it for the smiles that I get in return. I do it for the families so they can look back on in 10 years, and think WOW, that was a great time. It’s for the laughs and the FUN that it brings to me when I’m shooting. I do it for the clients.

It’s more than just a side gig for me, it’s a passion that I love. Something that isn’t just a thing on my to do list to complete. It’s an experience that I hope my clients have fun with. And also a memory that I hope will make a lasting impression. THIS is the true value of a session.

If you haven’t had the chance for me to shoot your family, children, or graduating senior, reach out to me today or click here! I would love to help you capture those memories so you can view them for a lifetime.

In the meantime, enjoy some of these BTS (behind the scene) action shots. 😉 And please do not be afraid to snap a photo of me shooting, if you ever have a session with me! 🤗
