We make our portrait photography process easy for you. Here is a bit of what you can expect when working with us:

STEP 1: After we connect over an email or phone call, we’ll talk about your portrait vision as I walk you through my process and artwork options. Once you decide to book, I’ll send a contract and portrait session invoice, and we will lock in your session date my calendar.

STEP 2: Now that you are officially a Carina Photographics client, I'll provide guidance on what to wear and what to expect during your session.

STEP 3: Now comes the big day: your portrait session. We'll meet up for your portraits, whether in-studio or on-location, and work together until we get a nice variety of portraits to choose from. Hair/makeup artistry is also available upon request.

STEP 4: After your portrait session, I’ll present your best-of-the-best photos to you at my St. Paul studio. We’ll choose and order your favorite photos and your final portrait options at this time.

STEP 5: All your chosen photos will receive my Master Art Retouching to finalize and perfect each detail. Any heirloom artwork will be custom-designed to fit your life and home. 

STEP 6: Your final heirloom artwork will be delivered in a few weeks to fill your home with life and love!
