What to expect when you book a session with TFP
A portrait should be an expression of your personality, not just a snapshot. Taking the time to really understand what is is that you are wanting to express and portray, helps me to achieve the best images possible. I usually begin my new client relationship by setting up a meet and greet at a local café or coffee shop. This brief meeting enables both of us to get a feel for each others personalities, and to have a chance to discuss ideas and expectations for your upcoming session. This is where the contract gets signed, the deposit is made, the session is booked, and new friendships begin.
I work from my cozy home studio for many of my sessions or your choice of location for an outdoor shoot.. I will even help you locate the perfect setting. I use high quality lighting equipment such as soft-boxes, reflectors, and off camera studio lights which help create the magic. Before a session begins I like to show my clients, especially children, how some of the photography equipment works so that they are not intimidated by the lighting and set ups. The studio has many props and backdrops that can be used to help create your story . You are also welcome to bring your own props from home to make your session more authentic to your personality.
Once the session is complete, I begin the editing process. I will touch up any blemishes, bruises or scratches on the skin. I also slightly brighten the eyes and softly whiten the teeth if needed. Just enough to enhance your beauty and to make you look your very best. I do not change physical features, I can't fix sunburns or tan lines, nor make noses smaller, or bodies thinner. I'm a photographer not a magician. LOL I prefer to use lighting and angles to achieve the best look.. It is also up to you to do your part to ensure that you look and feel your very best the day of your session. Clink the link for a full list of do's and don'ts for achieving the best portrait results.
I recommend using one of my very talented professional hair stylist and make-up artists from my team who have made my clients look and feel absolutely stunning, This gives my clients a wonderful boost of confidence that portrays spectacularly in the final image.
Editing takes about 5-7 days, sometimes less,, sometimes more if it's a big job such as an event. Once the images are ready, they will be posted onto the website on the Photo Album page into a password protected gallery. You will have your choice of 20 images that are included in your package, and additional images are available for purchase for $10 a piece. Once you have chosen the images you would like they will be available to download straight from the website gallery.
So with that being said, if you like my work and you are interested in helping me to create a unique and beautiful
portrait, give me a call or contact me on Facebook. I would be delighted to be your photographer of choice.
A $25 non-refundable deposit is required upon signing the contract and placing a booking date for a photo session. The deposit guarantees that your date is reserved, and it covers time spent setting up and preparing for your session.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
The best photography ever. But that’s not all, the photographer was the most amazing person I’ve ever met, very friendly, helpful, and mindful of other people’s needs. You need time? Sure. You need more attention? Sure. She is always there for you. She treats you like she is family, she takes pictures with the same love and respect that a family member would have. And she is a perfectionist which is a good thing, she turns your photos into the perfect package and makes your life 10 times easier. % would recommend her to anybody for any type of event.
Tara Fuchs Photography has taken so many wonderful photos for my family. We trusted her with our wedding pictures, along with our son’s first birthday pictures and she did not disappoint. She’s always such a pleasure to work with and I really appreciate her taking the time to ensure every shoot has great results. I recommend her to everyone I know!
Tara makes dreams come true. Her eye can capture the same essence of love! We love her talent, but above all ....we love her dedication.
Tara is beyond amazing and so personable with her photography. My family and I have never had professional pictures taken and she made us feel so comfortable! She puts so many personal touches with props, picking out poses and making your vision come true! My maternity pictures came out absolutely beautiful! She also has amazing recommendations for hair and makeup with Laura and Caitlin. I highly recommend her for any photography needs. I can’t wait for her to do our newborn shoot!!!! Thank you so much Tara for taking your time with my family and creating memories for life for us.
Tara did photography of my daughter who is a dancer. My goal was to capture this time in her life, and have something she could look back on later in life. Tara was professional, fun, and prepared for the photo shoot. She made my girl feel happy and comfortable, and was able to capture her passion for dance. The resulting images are indeed "magical". I would highly recommend her services!
