For portrait sessions – A $50 non-refundable retainer fee is required to book your portrait session with Terribly In Love / Heidi Crawford. This is completed online and smart phone capable, I will guide you on my easy payment process.
Appointments are guaranteed once your retainer fee has been received and cleared. Currently, for remaining balances cash or check is the only accepted form of payment.
For pricing please complete the INQUIRY FORM  to see what specific packages I have available. I also may have specials on some sessions via my Facebook page.
Please allow up to 2 business days for a reply.
A client/photographer agreement will be required to be digitally signed by all parties outlining all the specific details, before any session takes place.
Once your retainer fee is cleared, your appointment date is officially secured with me! We will discuss all of the fun details leading up to your session with whatever method of communication you are comfy with.

Most sessions must be booked at least 2 weeks prior to your desired portrait session date, as I only offer a very limited amount of sessions per year. Outdoor portraits take place between 4pm-7pm, an hour or two before sunset to get that dreamy light. Limited weekend evenings are available.

 

Images that have been specifically sized for web use will already include a small watermark in your gallery. Images that are high resolution should not be uploaded to the internet and will not contain a watermark. This will be apart of our agreement.

Crediting your photographer keeps my business alive and well! Feedback from my lovely clients on Facebook is also the best thank you!

Your final images are chosen carefully by yours truly to insure they are in keeping with my style and standards as an artist. So not all images taken will be selected to be apart of your final gallery. All images are carefully sorted out that might include closed eyes, blurry images and multiples of the same pose. Images chosen are fine tuned, blemishes are removed, and teeth are whitened to esthetic.  No unedited/raw images will be delivered. Any editing requests after initial gallery has been received will require an editing fee.

Some portrait packages may include an option to choose your photos and purchase a few extras. This option is not available unless stated otherwise by the photographer.

 

Yes, yes and yes!

Images sized for the web delivered in your gallery with my watermark are the only images that should be uploaded and shared.

 I ask and respect that no further edits be made to your photos from our session such as putting additional filters on the images in Instagram or Facebook.* 

All images taken are subject to be shared for future promotional use on my portfolio sites.

Wear something that makes you feel good, comfortable & seems to coordinate well with whomever you might be taking pictures with or the location you think fits your style! Remember to dress comfortably and feel confident in what you are wearing.  I  prefer no screenprints/logos/words/ or busy patterns because in most cases it can be distracting and date your photos.

This also might sound silly, but a good ole teeth flossin’ and a fresh manicure go a long way. Details like this are sure to make you “picture perfect ready”.

If you are still stumped on what to wear, I can help you create a color scheme and give ideas based on the location you are choosing! Any props are welcome, specificially something that might represent you and your personality. If you would like to incorporate a styled shoot with multiple props, let’s talk! At this time I do not generally provide props but if I have something available such as a cute chair I will try and bring it at your request!

During our session I want to make everyone feel extremely comfortable and relaxed, and want you to truly have fun with it! We will play with slightly posed and unposed compositions. I strive to capture my clients in the genuine moment, interacting as they naturally do. This includes some tickle fights, and playful moments with you and your family.
 I like to often pretend I’m a fly on the wall, capturing fun perspectives and just being your personal far less aggressive paparazzi for the evening! Be forewarned tho, I will most likely break the ice by cracking some “funny to me” jokes ( sorry in advance ). I really try to go the extra mile to help you feel at ease in front of my camera. If you feel confident you will with no doubt love your photos!
I really obsess over capturing the small and quiet unsuspecting little moments shared between you and your loved one.  I do include a few “traditional” images in your gallery, however, I focus the majority of the session around “in the moment” lifestyle documentary work. I ask that parents relax, focus on me and genuine interaction and just be in the moment, rather than stress that your kiddos aren’t smiling or sitting correctly. Alternatively, if you have an idea or an inspiration, lets talk about how we can make it a reality during your session! Portrait sessions don’t HAVE to be serious, and most definately should be a fun experience.

After our session, you will be provided with access to an online temporary gallery to view and download your fully-edited digital images within two-three weeks from our session. From the gallery I suggest to download your high resolution files on a desktop for future printing. You will also have access to smaller sized files for your social media sites.

Outdoor Portrait Session – Digital Image Collections starting at $125
Small Party Coverage Package (Baby Shower & Gender Reveal Parties only) starting at $75 per hour
+ $50 non-refundable Retainer Fee 
You will receive a link to an online temporary viewing & downloadable gallery with your image files for self-printing and social media sharing ( a gallery re-upload requires a $25 fee after it’s 30 day expiration date).
A print authorization is included with most packages booked in 2017.
You will also have the option of ordering prints through your gallery for added convenience! USB & printed products are extra.
Many Portrait Collections are tailored to fit your needs, therefore I will be able to quickly send over some portrait package pricing options, once I have all of your detailed information filled out on my Get In Touch page. Package options are only valid for up to 2 weeks after it is sent, and does not guarantee your session. My all inclusive pricing is for local cities – Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler and Tempe. If you would like to shoot outside of these cities fee is a $1.00 per mile added to your session fee.

I am passionate about capturing the authentic smiles and all the sweetest moments in life of young children, playful expecting couples and moms to be. I especially love devoting my time to capturing these classic candid images that showcase true personality and tell your story.

I will go out on a limb and describe most of my images as bright, fun, a little surreal and heartwarming. I always strive to emphasize my subjects with natural but creative compositions, and am eager to continue to grow as a photographer showcasing a style that is all my own. I treat all of my sessions differently and photograph accordingly so that your images are ultimately uniquely you.
