"How It Works" - It is Really Easy to Work With Images By Kelli

You stopped by my website and this blog caught your eye. GOOD! I'm glad you're here. As a business owner it may feel like you have 99 problems... but believe me when I say "product photography doesn't have to be one of them". Keep reading to see how it easy it will be to work with Images By Kelli!

You’re interested in working with me, but are unsure of how it works… or even what it’s like to work with me. Those are completely valid questions/concerns, and while I offer a few different services… whether it’s a one time production shoot or a monthly subscription... the process of “how it works” and the experience of working with me are the same for both.

To get started, you’ll have reached out either via Instagram/FB DM or by using the contact form on my website. We'll schedule a virtual coffee (Zoom) or a phone call (but if you’re local to Horry County, SC we can definitely make that a real coffee) and we'll talk about the service you are interested in, what type of products & how many, + various other details. Most importantly, what YOU envision for your brand. However, do not worry if these are questions you don’t have answers to, we can work all of this out during our call.

Afterwards, I will provide inspiration (mood board) based on your thoughts and we’ll create a plan that will leave you excited for the rest of the process! Once we've decided to move forward, I’ll create your contract and first invoice and send that over to you.

After the contract is signed and the invoice is paid… you’ll be getting your products ready to ship. Once that package is ready, you’ll ship it with your preferred carrier. Something important to note…UPS does not deliver to my address on Saturdays and FedEx does not overnight anything to me, ever. So, please do not pay for those add-ons when shipping.

This next part of the process is my favorite! Your production shoot! This is when I have the most fun - creating magic - by styling, staging, and photographing/filming your products. What you may not know, during this part of the process, is if the photos aren’t turning out the way that I like… I will automatically re-shoot. This is why my turnaround times are "within 21 business days" for a production shoot and delivery at the end of the month for monthly subscriptions. Doing photo shoots aren’t as easy as clicking a button. There’s so much thought, staging and re-staging, and post processing that goes into it. Which is what I consider fun!

Final part, and this will be YOUR favorite... Delivery day! This is when you will get an email that says “Your Gallery Is Ready”! Now, I’ve been told by one client that “This is like one of my favorite things to do….pick my images from you. It’s really exciting to get the galleries. Always an uplift!” and by another “wow . just wow. Can you stop with these beautiful images?!?! every month I want to buy them all”. Which is exactly how I want you to feel when going through your gallery. The only hard part about this process - will be choosing which images you want to keep!

And P.S. - No, I won’t stop giving you beautiful images! ;)

Now that you know that it really is that easy... Head over to the How To Reach Me page and let's get your session started!
