What To Expect


Before Your Session

Once you have decided to book your session with Raindance Photography, you can expect a fully customized experience, from the beginning to the end! Before you even step through our doors, we have processes in place to ensure that you are receiving the experience you want and the products you expect out of your portrait session.

Upon booking, you will be asked for your package preference. You will then be sent the appropriate booking contract and styling questionnaire to get the booking ball rolling! The contract outlines all terms and conditions and is designed to help you understand exactly what your package includes before committing to the transaction. Your styling questionnaire will gather information to help your photographer get a better idea about your vision, purpose, wants, and needs for your session. Your location and/or studio set colours will be determined based on your questionnaire responses.

Upon submission of your booking forms, your creative fees are due via PayPal or EMT. All prices are subject to HST.

Once booking forms and fees have been received, you will be sent your preparation package to help your session go as smoothly as possible. You will be given a session date for your portraits as well as a second date approximately 2-3 weeks later to return for your Reveal & Order Appointment.

A day or two prior to your session, you will receive a courtesy reminder email from your photographer. You may request your reminder to be sent via text message, for your convenience.


During Your Session

The day of your session will be laid back and fun! You can expect your session to last anywhere from 30 minutes (for milestone minis) to 1 hour (for full sessions) to 2-3 hours (for newborn sessions). At the end of your session, your photographer will discuss your Reveal & Order Appointment with you, to ensure you are prepared. You will be given information to help you prepare for this appointment before you leave.

After Your Session

About 2-3 weeks later, you will return for your Reveal & Order Appointment. You will bring your “homework” back with you at that time, which will include your “Wish List” of products that you hope to have out of your session. You will view a custom slideshow of your gallery set to music and will be able to hold your proof prints in your hands to help you visualize your images in print.

Depending on your wish list, your photographer will be at your disposal during this time to assist you in creating stunning wall art pieces and/or albums for your home (or for gifts!) We ask that all decision makers be present at this appointment, as all decisions on products and images must be made at this time in order to take advantage of any product discounts included with your package. Requests for additional ordering appointments will incur a fee. Payment for all products purchased during your Reveal & Order Appointment is due in full before orders are placed with the lab. For your convenience, we accept Cash, EMT, PayPal, and all Major Credit Cards.

After you’ve placed your order, you get to go home and dream about how BEAUTIFUL all of the art we’ve created together will look in your home! Your order will be ready for you in approximately 1-3 weeks (depending on the products you order and their in-lab turnaround times).

I take great pride in being a high quality, boutique photography studio, and in being able to offer you an exceptional level of hands-on service that is second to none in the Barrie Area. Satisfaction is always guaranteed!
