A Special Note From Your Artist

With a thousand options for photographers these days, it can be difficult to make a decision on who fits you best.

When considering Noel Photography and Design, know your portraits are more than just a couple of quick snapshots in the midst of my busy work week. In fact, your images are my work week! I have dedicated myself full-time to creating one-of-a-kind artworks with a dramatic, romantic, and modern-vintage personality. Your images will be given the same love and attention I put into my personal works. Creating beautiful, timeless photographs for you and your family.

As important as the art itself, included with most sessions is a USB of your edited images. This is an extremely valuable and priceless addition to your session, that many photographer won’t include with your fee. However, I find it extremely important to be able to revisit, reprint and re-share files, just as clients should do with their most cherished memories.
I look forward to our session together!

FAQ about Life Portraits

WHAT IF IT RAINS ON THE DAY OF MY SESSION?

Mother nature is unpredictable, and we are at her mercy. Sessions can be conducted in light rain or snow. However, if weather just isn’t on our side, your session can be rescheduled to another day.

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN PROPS?

Yes! If there are special item(s) you’d like in your photos, feel free to bring them along. Doing so will only make your images more personable.

If it’s a large collection, bring a few of your favorites, this will photograph much better! (Trophies, metals and awards are an exception. Feel free to brag!) If your item is particularly large, like a vehicle, please inform us before the shoot so we have time to prepare accommodations.

CAN WE BRING A PET?

Pets are welcome in your outdoor photos. However, please bring along a pet sitter to keep your furry friend company and safe. Pets are NOT allowed in the studio.

WHAT KIND OF RETOUCHES ARE DONE?

Basic retouches such as color and light adjustment, blemish control and completion smoothing are included as part of the editing process.

Tan line reduction and minor glasses glare can be retouched for an additional fee. Sunburns, skin discoloration from spray tans, major glasses glare or lenses that darken in light can not be fixed. (Avoid excessive sun exposure and spray tanning within days of your session. Consider removing your glass’s lenses for your shoot.)

HOW ARE IMAGES DELIVERED?

Typically images will be delivered on a USB to the home address of the client, unless specified in the session description above. However, special products can be ordered through Noel Photography and Design. For more information on printed photo items visit the Printing Services page.

WHEN ARE IMAGES DELIVERED?

USB image delivery can vary during different times of the year and between session types. Typically the goal is a 1-2 week turn around time, give or take, for editing and shipping.

Clothing Tips

AVOID:

• Overly bold patterns that distract from your face.

• An all white outfit that may wash out your complexion.

• Oversized clothing that can make you appear heavier. (Well fitted clothes look and photograph best!)

• Shirts that have words on them, other than name brands.

• Sleeveless tops, especially if you’re self conscious about your arms.

• Mini skirts or overly low cut shirts. (This may limit your posing and show more than you want to!)

• Getting sunburned or spray tans that discolor your skin. (This can not be fixed!)

• Having all the same color outfits. Variety keeps your photos fun and trendy.

DO:

• Apply makeup and touch up hair last minute.

• Wear darker clothing to appear slimmer.

• Have a couple outfit choices in different colors.

• Use clothing to hide problem areas, such as jackets or cardigans to cover upper arms.

• Choose a varied color scheme and different styles for each individual in family photos.

• Wear jewelry, belts and other accessories to complete your look and accent your best features.

• Try on all your outfits beforehand to be sure you like what you see in the mirror!
