learn about the process

My pictures are classic, sophisticated and engaging. Each session is carefully planned to bring your vision, wardrobe and the background in harmony together.

Sessions are lighthearted, fun and I work diligently to bring out the personality of each client. I don’t just capture perfectly poised subjects, I capture personality, emotion and the beauty of each of my clients.

why choose me?

the details

My packages include a consultation by phone to plan the details of your session — from the date to the location, your wardrobe and tools to help you prepare for your photo session. Every detail matters!

Step 1

I strive to make each session fun, lighthearted and welcoming. I encourage your interaction with the camera and, for group shots, with one another during the session. The more personality presented, the more authentic the pictures feel. Session lengths are determined by package. 

Step 2

I take hundreds of photos during your session and cull them to provide you with the very best images. From there, I lightly edit the images in our digital darkroom to optimize lighting, color, contrast and lightly touch up skin tones. Extensive touchups are available for a fee.

Step 3

Approximately 7-10 days following your session, I will present you with an online gallery of your beautifully edited images. The number of images is determined by your package selection. Want to see more images? Ask how you can upgrade your package and see more images!

Step 4

All presented images are available for download from website and mobile app using download pin. Images will be available for up to two years.

Step 5

Permission to print these images will be enclosed with your gallery. Print purchases are placed directly from the client gallery and available in luster, metallic or matte.

step 6

Please allow 7-14 days for print deliveries. All prints purchased through Christine Lowell Photography are guaranteed for quality and satisfaction.

Packages & Pricing

WHAT IF I JUST NEED ONE IMAGE FOR MY HEADSHOT?

Whether one image is selected or multiple, the same process is used for each client session — from consultation to photo shoot to culling and editing and presentation. This is why we offer a minimum of five images for personal brand image and headshot packages.

WHY DON'T YOU PRESENT ALL PHOTOS TAKEN AT THE SESSION?

Due to the length of time it would take to convert and edit each photo, we do not present all images from the session. Instead, we cull the session images to represent the best photos for the package. We then edit each presented photo, so you may select from the very best images.

HOW CAN I RESERVE MY APPOINTMENT?

Please fill out a contact form to request an appointment. There is a 50% nonrefundable retainer due to reserve a date for a photo session. Retainer will be deducted from the final balance due the day of the session.

ARE YOUR SESSIONS INDOORS OR OUTDOORS?

The majority of Christine Lowell Photography sessions are conducted in the beautiful outdoors of the Sonora Desert. Indoor sessions are available for special events, team photos and headshot events.

DO YOU OFFER GROUP DISCOUNTS?

Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Please compete the contact form and include the number of individuals, the desired setting/backdrop, and the deadline for final delivery. Christine Lowell Photography will respond to your request within the next business day. 

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

The need for rescheduling may arise. A one-time rescheduling of your appointment is available for no additional charge to you when 7 days notice is provided. Saturday appointments will be rescheduled to the next available Monday-Friday opening. Appointments must be rescheduled within 30 days of original session. There is a $100 rescheduling fee for changes made thereafter.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?

Cancellations result in forfeiture of your nonrefundable retainer. 

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO THE SESSION?

During your session consultation, we will discuss the best colors and coordinating colors and style for the photo backdrop.

HOW MANY FINAL IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

Christine Lowell Photography is pleased to offer choices and packages that suit your need and fit your budget. Please check Packages & Pricing for more information.

WHAT TIME OF DAY ARE SESSIONS?

Sessions are conducted 1-2 hours prior to the sunset for optimal lighting outdoors. Indoor sessions vary by location.

WHAT IS YOUR RAINY-DAY POLICY?

A day or two before your session, Christine Lowell Photography will check in with the forecast. Conditions that may cause cancellation include wind in excess of 15 mph, day-long rain, temperatures in excess of 110 degrees, a monsoon storm or a haboob. You will be notified if your session needs to be rescheduled. Sessions rescheduled due to inclement weather are no additional fee to the client.

WHERE CAN I GO TO GET MY DIGITAL IMAGES PRINTED?

For best results, we recommend choosing a premier printing lab. We recommend MPix, Shutterfly, and Minted.

ARE PRINTS FROM OUTSIDE PRINT SHOPS GUARANTEED?

For guaranteed results, purchase prints directly through Christine Lowell Photography.

CAN I EDIT MY OWN PICTURES?

We edit and present photos to you in final form. To maintain the image integrity, we ask that filters and editing not be conducted on the final images. Christine Lowell Photography is not responsible for print mishaps that occur due to images being edited, cropped, filtered or image sizes changed. If you have a special editing request, additional fees may apply.
