PLEASE CREATE AN ACCOUNT BEFORE REQUESTING A BOOKING. Then send an email to request a session date and time.
Congratulations on your mission call! For the next year and a half, or two years, you will be serving the Lord and experiencing life on your own. The decision to serve a mission is a defining choice of character that you have made in your life. It requires hard work, service, selflessness, and a willingness to commit to a long term journey in your life. Your heart will forever be changed by your service to the Lord, and you will be able to bless the lives of so many people you come in contact with. Having a missionary session will be the perfect way to remember them at the beginning of your wonderful journey.
A professional missionary photo will help create a classy missionary plague to hang in your ward house and remind the ward members and people at home to continually keep you in their prayers. You can also use the pictures for any announcements that you will be sending out as well as putting in frames and hanging up in your home so that your family will always be able to remember how amazing you are.
portrait sessions, except for the mini session, require a retainer fee of $50 when you send a booking request, which will then be applied to
the full cost of your session. $25 of that fee is nonrefundable if you end up
canceling completely. You will also be required to sign a contract before your session date is solidified. I will hold your requested date for 1 week, to give you time to get those items to me. After that 1 week your date and time will be opened back up to the public as an available time.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
For all missionaries I suggest your Sunday best. It should be a reflection of the servant of the Lord that you have been called to be. For men, a nice fitted suit is strongly suggested. Please make sure it is wrinkle free and clean from soil or dirt. Make sure you have had a recent haircut that reflects the proper missionary haircut standards that the church suggests that you have.
For the women, choose your favorite dress or skirt and shirt combination. Do not overdue it on the make up, hair style, or jewelry accessories.
I always ask that my clients send me a photo of
their outfit to ensure that everything will be cohesive with
the background that we are photographing at.
DO WE BRING?
For missionaries I always suggest the following items: A large and small handheld flag of the location you have been called to serve in, your missionary bag you will use to carry around, a set of scriptures with your name on it, and the mission call. You are welcome to bring any other items with you or none at all. I leave it up to what you really are wanting to accomplish with your session.
PHOTO SESSION DAY – WHAT TO EXPECT
Missionary photos are perfect for capturing that moment in time before you leave for a long length of time. Photos like this are ones you'll treasure for years. You'll want to make sure you are prepared and ready to make the most of our time together. This means a few things. First, make sure to schedule your session during a time when you will be at your best mentally. Staying up late the night before an early morning session is not always the best use of time, or the wisest choice. In other words, come well-rested and fed! Depending on your location of choice, there will be good and bad times to photograph. I will make suggestions on when we'll get the best outcome.
AFTER PHOTO SESSION DAY – WHAT TO EXPECT
After your photo session you will be anxious to see your photos, and I'll be anxious to share them with you! It generally takes 2-3 weeks to prepare your images. Once they are ready I will set up an appointment with you where you can come and view your photos in person. From those photos you will choose your favorite shots within your package allotment.
