Why Choose Desire Anne Photography?
Photography is an art! And I love what I do. Capturing your memories is very important to me. Every image is custom enhanced with my artistic flair. I pride myself on being able to deliver you high-quality prints, canvases, albums, and other products. You do not want your memories sitting on a CD somewhere it will be forgotten about. Your family art is precious and should be proudly displayed in your home, your office, and the homes of other family you would like to gift to. Senior portrait packages start at $170. Family portrait packages start at $295.
How do I book your services?
To book a session, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the Contact page. In your message, include the type of session you are interested in. If you’d like a callback, include your phone number, too. Half of your session cost is required to hold your date.
How far in advance should I book my session?
At least two weeks, so we can meet for your pre-session consultation.
But if you need a session sooner, do not hesitate to contact me. I do not mind checking to see if I have availability on the date you need.
In addition to prints, what other photography products do you offer?
As mentioned before, photography is an art. DAP also offers luxury products, such as framed and unframed canvases, custom albums, acrylic photo blocks, and graduation invitations/announcements.
How far will you travel to photograph?
I am not limited to Mobile, Alabama. Travel up to 30 miles from zip code 36606 is included in your session fee. After that, a rate of 60 cents per mile each way will be added to your invoice.
Can our pets be photographed with us?
Of course! Pets are family, too! Be sure to let me know in advance, so I can be better prepared. Also, be sure to bring a carrying case or leash so your pet(s) doesn’t interfere with shots they aren’t supposed to be in. Don’t forget their snacks and clean up baggies.
Can I request specific photos to be taken (i.e. grandchildren/grandparents, kids with pets)?
This is also perfectly fine! I am here to capture your memories the way you want them remembered. Be sure to let me know in advance who will be in attendance at your session.
What do we need to bring?
You are welcome to bring props and multiple outfits, especially if you’re doing senior portraits!
If you’re booking a family session with kids, I suggest bringing each child’s favorite toy/stuffed animal to 1) keep them busy during shots they’re not in and 2) to use as a prop for photos they take by themselves!
When will my images (‘proofs’) be ready?
Images are ready within two to three weeks, and will be shown as a slideshow at your in-person image reveal/ordering appointment. I do not provide online proofing galleries.
Where is the in-person image reveal/ordering appointment held?
For your convenience, I travel to your home for the image reveal. Sizing guides and samples will be brought along. If you’d like to meet somewhere else, like a coffee shop, that is fine. But due to the emotions people experience when they see their portraits, clients prefer to be at home. An in-home reveal also allows us to see the appropriate sizes that should be ordered for your walls.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, payment plans are available during the in-person image reveal/ordering appointment. A deposit is required to start a payment plan.
