TIPS FOR A SMOOTH SESSION
ARRIVE EARLY I usually suggest arriving to your appointment at least 5 - 10 minutes early.
WARDROBE If you are bringing a specialized wardrobe, please try to keep it as clean and wrinkle free as possible. If we need to steam or clean your wardrobe, it may interfere with your allotted time.
HMUA SERVICES If Tonya Barnes Photography is providing your hair and makeup artist, please come with a clean face & Clean hair. Stylists should be paid for at the time of service and directly to the HMUA unless prior arrangements have been made.
SNACKS & DRINKS Tonya Barnes Photography will typically have drinks and light refreshments during your shoot. Please be sure to drink plenty of water or eat something light if you will be visiting for a while. The warm lights and posing positions can easily be draining.
INSPIRATION IMAGES If you have inspiration images of backgrounds and poses you like to try, please feel free to forward them to me. These can be used as reference, but most likely won't be the same since art is interpretive.
I ASK THAT YOU PLEASE DO NOT TAKE SCREENSHOTS OF PROOFS AND POST PUBLICALLY SINCE THIS IS NOT A PREFERRED REPRESENTATION OF MY WORK. PLEASE DO NOT EDIT YOUR IMAGES. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOMETHING EDITED DIFFERENTLY, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT - I AM HAPPY TO WORK SOMETHING OUT.
Your portrait session may take 10-14 business days to complete the editing process. Events may take up to 21 business days with Bridal and weddings taking 8-16 weeks or more depending on my workload and the size of the wedding. Please consider that during the holidays, I spend time with my family and take at least a couple of weeks off after Thanksgiving and Christmas. I also donate much of my time during the fall, so please understand that your images may take longer.
