Roxanne Augusta creates customized sessions based on each client and their interests and personality. Each session includes a pre-session consultation, help with wardrobe selection, travel, matted prints, and digital images.
If you read the MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER section, you saw that my love for photography started with an obsession over old photographs as a young girl. I have found that in this digital world, we often do not print our images like we used to. It is my goal to give clients beautiful, printed images that they, and their families for generations, will fall in love with. Each of my package options include matted photographs and their corresponding digital files.
PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION: We will begin with a pre-session consultation either by meeting in person or talking on the phone. We will discuss your vision for the session and get to know each other so we are comfortable when the day arrives. This is when we will start planning your session, decide on a date, and choose a package that best suites you and your budget. I will also help choose location(s) and outfits to create a one of a kind session. A $150 non-refundable retainer fee will be due to reserve your session.
SESSION: I pride myself on fun and unique sessions that fit my clients. The sky is the limit! Depending on the package, we will go to one or two locations that best fits you. A location is chosen based on its versatility, so even if it is just one spot, we will make sure it can be used many different ways. While on location we will have fun, listen to music, and create some beautiful images. Session packages start at $475.
REVEAL: 1-2 Weeks after your session, we will meet again and I will reveal your printed and matted images. After the reveal, you will receive a link to your personal digital gallery and a link to your personal app with your edited images.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WILL YOU POSE US? I do my best to capture raw, authentic moments for my clients. I want my sessions to feel like dates or a hang outs with a friend. I want to capture you in your natural state and not posed and stiff. I may not pose you but I will direct you as we do different movements and activities. I want to keep it natural and fun!
WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP US? I know that we all have pressures on us to look a certain way but I am all about loving ourselves and who we are at this moment. We may not look the way we want to but someone out there loves us for exactly who we are in this moment. That being said, I will remove any blemishes or temporary marks but I will not turn you into superman or wonder woman. Prior to the session I will make sure to ask you your least favorite things and do my best to avoid those or photograph you in a way that those are not accentuated.
WHAT DO WE WEAR? I don’t recommend that everyone gets matchy matchy. I would pick outfits that you are comfortable and feel yourself in. I am always happy to help though so don’t feel overwhelmed with the decision.
WHAT IF IT RAINS OR THE WEATHER IS BAD? Guam weather is crazy and you never know what you are going to get. It can be sunny in one part of the island and storming on the other side. I normally don’t reschedule sessions until we are sure it is going to be bad or if has been raining a lot and the location we are going to is super muddy. I do not reschedule for overcast weather because it puts off beautiful, even light that is still amazing for portraits.
WILL WE GET RAW/UNEDITED FILES? No, raw and unedited files are incomplete pieces of work. Plus 99% of people do not have the software it takes to read RAW files.
