Project Description


From senior portraits to engagements – maternity shoots and family portraits, we’re well versed in life event photography. For us, this is a meticulous and creative process that we absolutely love!

It all begins with the consultation. Life event shoots are a more in depth and detailed discussion. This is usually a combination of both in person and phone consultations. This is the time for you to share all of your thoughts with us. We want to hear everything. Even if you don’t have a clear idea of all the details, we’re here to help and guide you throughout the entire process. Making sure you’re comfortable and happy with the direction we want to take, before the shoot, is what we strive to accomplish during the consultation. This consultation not only gives us a chance to get to know one another but, to also go over important aspects of the shoot – such as locations, wardrobe and timeline.

For life event photography, an inspiration board is a must. Inspiration boards are a great way for us to see your vision. These inspiration boards truly help us to be on the same page as you. Even if you’ve never created one before, we’re more than happy to help.

Locations also play an incredibly important role when it comes to life event photography. A part of our process is location scouting, which we do frequently in the surrounding areas of our studios. So, if there’s a particular environment you’re looking for, most of the time we’ll know of a place. If you know the exact location you’d like to have your shoot at, perfect! – We’ll plan accordingly.

Wardrobe is a huge part of life event photography. Most of the time our clients have a clear idea of what their going to wear. But, if this isn’t the case, we’re here to help narrow down the wardrobe selection. Being professionals in the industry, we know precisely what does and doesn’t read well on camera. We have a great deal of experience in coordinating outfits with any environmental backdrop we’re working with.

Hair and makeup is recommended with all of our shoots but, even more so when it comes to life event photography. We know that sometimes these types of photoshoots can be stressful and possibly overwhelming. Having dedicated hair and makeup professionals with us throughout the entirety of your shoot will definitely ease some of that stress. We want you to have fun and enjoy your time during your photo session.

After your photo session, we will email you a special link with all of your photos. With life event photography, you’re looking at receiving a couple hundred photos. This special link will make your selection process a lot easier. Our CRM updates in realtime, so we know the exact photos you select when you select them for editing. All editing is done by Shelly Perry Photography, so you will always have consistency throughout all of your photos. We also are regularly improving our CRM to help make our turnaround time quicker for you.
