What makes the DFinney Experience unique?

In short- each session is inspired BY YOU.

Locations are inspired by what you will be wearing, and how the session is shot is inspired by your session goals.
Resulting in a completely personalized and truly collaborative experience!

Take a peek at what this looks like in action:



You’ve reviewed the available packages, FAQs, and found a date that works for you. After securing your session through the booking site (or the private booking link sent to you), and caring for your contract, your session has been booked!

Timeline: 2+ weeks before your session.



After your booking is received, you’ll be sent a confirmation email with details on how best to prepare for your session! Based on the session type, an applicable Pinterest board will be shared with you for wardrobe inspiration. If you did not share them on the booking intake form, you’ll also be asked to share your session goal(s) and any ideas you may have.

Timeline: shortly after your booking is received.


wardrobe & SESSION GOALS

Sharing your session goal(s) helps give me an idea of how best to photograph your session. From there, the next important piece is wardrobe. Once you’ve decided on what you’d like to wear, just snap a photo and send it my way! If you need assistance deciding between options, I’m happy to help!

Timeline: 3 days (or more) before your session.



After considering your session goal(s), any ideas you may have, and your wardrobe photos, I get a plan in place and select the perfect location(s) to bring everything together. This ensures that your final photos will be nice and cohesive. Once the location is decided, you’ll be sent one final email with day-of details and a few reminders.

Timeline: after your wardrobe photos & session goals are received.


your shoot!

Here’s where all of the magic comes together! After your makeup appointment, we will meet at the location and have your photo session. If you’re a little nervous, I totally get it! I will be very encouraging and can help guide you as much (or as little) as needed :) Everyone tends to looks happy in their photos because we’re having a great time together!


light retouching

Once your session is complete, I will carefully comb through your photos and select the best images. These will be lightly retouched (exposure/color correction) using Lightroom and prepared for proofing.

Timeline: a few days following your session.



It’s time to see how amazingly your photos turned out! You will be emailed a link to your password-protected proof gallery. From there, you’ll be able to review your images and select your favorites. If you have a lot of favorites, you’re more than welcome to purchase additional files or the whole gallery!

Timeline: one week following your session.



Once your final selections are made, your images are then added to my retouching queue and carefully retouched using Photoshop.

Timeline: a few days after your final selections are received.


final delivery

The moment you’ve been waiting for. Your photos are all finished! You’ll be sent a link to your final gallery of high-resolution images, and if included with your package, a customized USB and complimentary mounted print will be delivered to you in the mail.

Timeline: one week after your final selections are received.


put your photos to use!

You have amazing new photos, share them with the world! Update your website, social media profiles, and marketing imagery, share them with friends and family, print and frame them, make greeting cards, drink coasters, keychains, photo books, you name it! With every lifestyle session, professional lab recommendations are included so that you can be sure your prints and photo products are of the highest quality.
