What to Expect

Clients come to Scott McDougall Photography to create portrait art of loved ones & of priceless memories... Our clients are interested in investing in artwork to be admired and cherished forever. Our lives are forever changing and portraits capture our memories. Don't settle for ordinary...


What to Expect? THE CONSULTATION: During the initial phone consultation we will do four main things: 1) Discuss what type of portraiture you are looking for. We will work with you to create the perfect portrait session - portrait style, clothing, props, location, and time of day. 2) Schedule your portrait session. 3) Schedule your view & order session. 4) Confirm your sessions with your $150 reservation retainer. This retainer holds your date and time for both sessions and the entire amount will be applied to your order.


THE PORTRAIT SESSION: Don't forget to wear the appropriate clothing that we discussed in the initial consultation... your clothing plays a large role in setting the tone for your entire portrait session. Please arrive on time & and allow ample time for your session so that you can be relaxed and enjoy the portrait experience.


ORDERING SESSION PREPARATION: To simplify the ordering process please do the following: 1) Email us snapshots of any walls on which you may want to display your portraits. Just let us know the measurement of any item in the snapshot. During your ordering session, we will be able to use your snapshots to show you exactly what different sized wall portraits would look like in your home. 2) Make a list of friends & family that you want to give portraits to or provide access to.


THE VIEWING & ORDERING SESSION: Approximately 2 weeks after your portrait session you will get to view your images for the first time via an awesome slideshow. Since you will most likely be placing your order at this time, please be sure that anyone that needs to be involved in the decision-making attends this session. Anyone else, such as parents and grandparents, who want to be part of the viewing and ordering process are more than welcome to join us. Please allow ample time for this session, as we do not want your decisions to be rushed. We will guide you through the process of selecting your favorite portraits and will be there to answer any questions along the way. Our ordering software makes this process easy and fun and it also allows us to show you different options such as actual size, cropping and color.
