03. Reveal & Ordering
When your photos are ready, we'll meet again for your reveal & ordering appointment where I will present your finished gallery of images and you will make your purchase selections. Your order will be hand-delivered once it arrives.
Your portrait session will be fun and all about you! I'll capture several expressions and poses, combining your your wishes with my ideas. I will then carefully review, edit, and retouch the best images from the session.
We will first meet for a consultation where you'll have the chance to see product samples, learn about my process, and preview detailed pricing information. Once booked, we will plan your session by email, by phone, or in person.

Q: What sets you apart?
A: There are many- possibly hundreds- of photographers in the area that you could choose from. A portrait session with Roxanne Elise Photography is about more than just pictures, but rather the entire experience. After all, you're hiring a photographer to capture an important time in your life. You can read about each aspect that sets my business apart from the others HERE.
Q: What products do most clients purchase?
A: Albums are very popular and are purchased by the majority of my clients, as they are the perfect way to get all of your favorite photos in one place. Other favorites include prints for the wall and to give as gifts, wallet size prints to hand out to friends, a small specialty product like an acrylic block or metal, and custom cards.
Q: What type of equipment do you use?
A: I use professional Canon digital cameras and Canon L-Series lenses, to ensure the highest quality images. And of course, I always bring backup equipment! Photos are edited on a color-calibrated Retina iMac computer using the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.
Q: Will you edit the pictures?
A: All images that you see will be edited in my signature style, which includes color correction, lighting adjustments, and cropping or straightening. Portraits will also have minor retouching done, meaning I'll remove or minimize blemishes while not altering permanent features. (Major retouching can be completed for a fee as well.) I take pride in maintaining accurate color and lighting in my photos for a more timeless look. All editing will be completed by me; I do not outsource!
Q: Did you go to school for photography?
A: Yes. In college, I completed various courses in photography, art, graphics, and digital design. My first photography class involved shooting and developing my own film in a darkroom, which was an invaluable experience.
Q: What should I wear for my session?
A: Every client will be given access to an exclusive "Style Guide" which contains helpful tips for preparing for your session and dressing your best! I always recommend dressing up when having professional portraits taken.
Q: Can I include my pet in my session?
A: Yes, so as long as your pet is leashed and well-behaved, and allowed at the location we are using.
Q: Do you photograph weddings? What about newborns?
A: While I have photographed these genres in the past, I am not currently taking commissions for weddings or newborns. I will gladly refer you to other photographers in the area who specialize in these genres.
Q: Are you insured?
A: Absolutely; my business is legal, registered, and fully insured.
Q: How do I book a session?
A: Contact me to set up a consultation. If you decide to book, the session fee will be due to secure your session date on my calendar.
