The process :)
PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING YOUR SESSION
Here are some answers to some questions you may have:
How do I book a photo session with you?
Please contact me for availability.
You may email me : [email protected],
Facebook message me : www.facebook.com/banasphotography
text / call 850.960.8838
OK. We have a date that would work for both of us - what's next?
To secure a session's date & time - booking fee of $100 is required to hold your spot.
Booking fee paid
Now it's time to wait until day or two before session, when I will contact you and we will work out details of exact time and location where we will meet.
To cancel a session, you need to contact me in writing no later than two weeks before the session. If I am able to rebook the session date, I will refund the booking fee.
If we reschedule a session upon your request, then the booking fee becomes non refundable , even if the weather doesn't allow to proceed with the session on the rescheduled date.
Weather is not allowing us to do the session on original scheduled day
Let's chat and see if there is another available date and time we can reschedule your session.
If there is a bad weather on rescheduled day and no possibility I can reschedule your session, I WILL refund your booking fee and try to find a photographer that would be available on a different day to get your pictures done.

Phew...., everyone survived and session is done, what now?
I will let you know how long to expect for your pictures to be done. If you start seeing your pictures on my Facebook page, that is a pretty good sign, that I am currently editing your session and your pictures should be done soon!
You may tag your selves in the pictures or shared them, but please do not modify them in any way!
When I am all done, I will email you the link to your private online gallery, from where you will download all your photos to your computer.
I will edit lighting, contrast, edit out people that happen to walk up into your pictures, straighten horizon, edit out acne to the extend that person will still look natural ( I can even swap heads if one person is not looking). Please don't ask me to make you skinny or manipulate your face (give you face lift and open you eyes ) I take your picture as you are and that's my goal. I won't make you into someone you are not.
Where to print the pictures?
I STRONGLY recommend using Professional labs,
NOT Walmart, Walgreens or any 1 hr print places!
You invested time and money in your session, so please do not ruin the pictures by printing them at cheap places!
You can order your photos from your gallery and they will be printed at Mpix lab, which is great lab!!!
Please note, that that your print orders are filled by the lab and shipped to your address, I don't have any control over any orders placed by clients.
~Allow at least an hour for the session so we can get as many cute pics as we can.
~ Most of my clients are planning on going to a dinner after the session, so plan ahead!!! Just think of this while you are planning your outing - Give your children (husbands and yourselves if needed :) a small snack before the session as they get hungry, tired and annoyed by that bossy lady with camera in her hand
- bring extra clothing for anyone who may get wet, sandy & dirty
- bring bottled water to drink and to wash your feet after the session as some locations do not have a wash off station
FYI - baby powder works wonders to get sand off your skin and leaves your skin silky smooth!
~ do not apply lotions before the session (sand will stick to you) - unless you desire to look like a sand burrito :)
- BRIBE BRIBE BRIBE!
Your kids & your husbands! :)) Maybe even give your hubby a beer to loosen up before the session
~ bring as little as possible - we will be moving place to place and it is hard to keep up with all the stuff
~ beach is windy - plan on it! If you don't want to have messy hair - use hair spray and a lots of it! If you want your hair to be perfect, please schedule indoor session with photographer that provides studio
~ plan on taking your shoes off! It's a beach , sneakers look little weird on the sand... just saying :)
~ let's have fun ! I have some cute props to help with shy children so let me know before session
