What to Expect
Welcome to the Obleek Guided Art Experience
If you are like me, then before you make a large investment into something like custom photography, you want to know what exactly it is that you're getting. I totally hear you, and that's why I've created this page to give you a walk-through of the entire experience.
I invite all my potential clients to meet with me at my home studio where I will give you a tour and show you some of the many props and accessories I offer my clients. Afterwards, we will go over products, pricing, and any other questions you have. And don't worry, no product decisions have to be made until after you view and fall in love with your images. If you choose to book at the pre-consultation (though there is absolutely no pressure to do so) we will also cover some of the session planning details. More planning will also take place via email and an online questionnaire.
The length of your session will vary depending on your session type and package booked, and it will take place in my studio or at a mutually agreed upon location. I will work with you to capture natural looking photographs that are candid, as well as direct you on posing when needed; I know how awkward it can be in front of the camera so I'm here to help.
Your Guided Art Experience
Your Guided Art Experience is where we will decide what to do with your photos and order your products, and it will be scheduled for around 5-7 days after your session has taken place back at my home studio (or in your home depending on distance and schedules). Everyone involved in buying decisions in your household must be there as we only offer one order appointment per session and do not use online galleries for ordering. Your photos will be lightly edited with no retouching just yet, though I will present a couple fully edited images so you will get the idea of what they will look like when finished. Together we will ooh and ahh over your photos and then choose your favourites and decide which products you would like to order. Your order will be finalized and paid for at the ordering appointment and we do offer payment plans if needed. Finished digital files will be sent to you approximately 2-4 weeks after the ordering session. Digital proofs for items such as albums and collages will shortly follow, and you will have one revision to make any changes needed which is almost always more than enough (additional revisions are $75 each).
All of my products come with a lifetime guarantee and all of my sessions are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. That means you will never be stuck with a flawed product or photos you don’t truly love.
Delivery and Installation of Products
Products can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to be printed depending on what you order. Once they are ready, you can arrange to pick up your orders at my home studio. Worried they will never get hung on your wall? Don't stress as we have an amazing art installer we can connect you with. Large orders qualify for free personal delivery and free installation by our experienced art installer; ask us at your pre-consult for more details.
It really is an experience unlike any other, and I promise you will enjoy every second of it. I can’t wait to work with you and your family to capture memories that you will cherish for generations to come.
