The Portrait Process

What happens when you book a session with Natasha ?

Together we will create a plan and shoot for that plan resulting in a session that makes magic. The entire portrait process takes place in several different meetings with us. Pre-Session Consultation, the Shoot, Preview & Ordering Appointment, and Delivery.

"So, How Do You Want To Display Your Images?"

Knowing the answer helps us to create a plan for your session, shoot it in the best possible way to reach our end-goal, and show you the beauty and magic of it. So let us show you how the Portrait Process works.

The Portrait Process :

  • The pre-Consultation
  • The Shoot
  • The Ordering appointment
  • Delivery

Pre-Session Consultation

First, let’s talk about the goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it? From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, colour design, location planning, the look and feel of the session, pre-consultation will answer ALL your questions and will help us to get to know your family. We will coordinate how we shoot the session and what the final outcome will be. Your shoot is NOT happenstance. It is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consultation can take place in-person.

Shoots at the studio or on-location

Shoots can be somewhat stressful for families. From wondering if the kids will behave to organising over what to wear and convincing dad that it won’t be “that bad,” may be challenging. Fun-filled, happy and relaxed, Natasha doesn’t mind energetic kids! As a matter of the fact, the more energy, the better for their real personality (the one you love the most) that will come out. 

Shoots take place in our professionally designed, a downtown loft-style studio in Dynasty Photography. We work with controlled studio lighting and a plethora of simple props and set designs. The studio offers a stylish and relaxed environment where we create a look that is sophisticated no matter what. When the weather is warmer, let’s take it outside! Sessions at one of Limerick’s scenic spots will help to make some amazing and unique images, especially if the location is special to you. So consider carefully where you’d like to have your session, or we can recommend a spot for you. We focus the portrait process around an amazing experience. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and a commitment to each family and the creation of unique art for their home.

Ordering Appointment

This is where the fun finishes! The Viewing & Ordering Appointment  is the time when you get to see all work of the session to pay off. Your images are projected onto a screen and we take the time to design the right art piece for your home. This is the time when you will finalize your portrait order, so be sure to pick a time when each participant can be there at that moment.  We’ll help you to sort the images and make final decisions on what will look the best with your decor. We’ll show you actual size and pair images together for a stunning album or wall gallery. We can add textures and design elements, or just let the portraits shine on their own. Specializing in wall series and heirloom albums, some of the products we offer are one-of-a-kind. All of them are sure to get you excited about what lies ahead! 

Delivery & Installation

About 2-5 weeks later, your art piece will be ready for collection. We will call or email you to let you know it’s in the studio and we will make arrangements for you to collect the final result. Once your beautiful portraits are installed, you can sit back and enjoy them EVERY DAY

Covid Considerations

Safety is my number one priority when organising and conducting my photo shoot sessions. My studio is always disinfected before and between clients, I operate an air purification system that kills 99% of bacteria in the studio and follow public health guidance. If you feel unwell prior to or during the day of your photo session, I will make arrangements to reschedule your visit for a time when you feel well.
