This can be e-mailed and reviewed during your session. To gain the most out of your session Elizabeth will be very comprehensive and speak quickly. Be prepared to take notes during your session to have a notebook handy. If follow-up sessions are desired she will give you homework to prepare for the next session.

FOR IMAGE REVIEWS: If you would like to have your existing image collection reviewed we can either review your website or any online gallery viewing site, or you may present a collection of low resolution images via email or in person.

  1. 1. Please organize all your existing digital images into CATEGORY FOLDERS. Include a variety of images both close-ups and long shots to give a comprehensive blueprint of your style. NOTE: Please don’t forget to save a COPY of this main folder to safe guard your original high-resolution images.
