ABOUT THE SESSION - Sergey Bidun

PORTRAIT SESSION EXPERIENCE

SESSION CONSULTATION

At Bidun Studio Photography, all our sessions are completely customized to you. Whether it’s a senior portrait, family or children photo session, we create completely customized and bespoke portraits for you. Before your session, we will spend time with you discussing the inspiration for your family portraits. We would like to know as much about you as possible, so we can tailor the experience to your exact wishes. While our Sacramento portrait photographer retains the creative control, we welcome your input on how you’d like the session to go and the types of portraits that you would like to achieve. We want your images to be an artistic representation of your family, so we’ll recommend styling, props, and activities that will best showcase your personalities and special bond.

PLANNING YOUR OUTFITS 

Choosing proper outfits for your portrait session is one of the most important aspects in achieving the highest quality portraits. Your outfits, during the Sacramento portrait session, will guide the mood and tone of the portraits, and therefore, should be carefully thought-out well in advance of the session date. But we are here to help you, and we will present you with a mood board to guide the style of clothing that we recommend you to wear. If you would like to, you are welcome to send us photos of your outfits that you are considering bringing along to the photo session. We can provide feedback and give you tips on how to create a cohesive look that will work well for the photos. Our goal is to have you dressed in stylish, timeless and minimalistic clothes that keep the focus on you rather than on the clothes. Once we’ve finalized the location, created a mood board of the perfect outfits, and discussed all of the little details, you are ready for your dream portrait photo session!

YOUR PORTRAIT SESSION

On the day of your shoot, all you need to do is prepare for a great time! Our goal at Bidun Studio Photography is to capture the individuality of the high school senior, the personal connection between the members of the family, or the beautiful special milestones of your child. Our images show the love you feel for your spouse and your children. We focus on bringing you together and creating an opportunity to celebrate and capture how close you are. Your family is special and the love you share should be celebrated with top fine art portrait photographs! Portraits that we take aren’t just snapshots with fake smiles and unnatural poses. Instead, in our portraits we focus on the eyes and genuine facial expressions. As Sacramento top photographers, we believe that family photography should be fun and feel natural, so we can capture those perfect moments of genuine personalities and emotions. During the Sacramento portrait session, we’ll encourage you to reveal your true personality to us, so that we can convey this in the portraits. We understand that not everyone is a natural in front of the camera, therefore our commitment is to make you as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. We are there to guide and direct you - to help you look your best possible self.

VIEWING & ORDERING SESSION

We will schedule your in-studio ordering session 2-3 weeks after your portrait photo session. You’ll view a slideshow of the very best images from your session that will be edited personally in Bidun Studio style. You will see samples of our custom products, and we will help with your purchase selections, either album, wall art, folio box, digital images or a combination of products. Whether you prefer a modern contemporary style or rustic chic, we’ll work together to ensure your portraits fit your home perfectly.  Having your portrait taken is a special occasion, and at Bidun Studio Photography we intend to make it highly enjoyable for you, as well as memorable. We value your individuality and want to create portraits of exceptional quality, that are very unique and personal to you. Now that you know more about the session and what to expect, you’ll have realized that this is exactly what you can expect when you invest with us. We can’t wait to see you at Bidun Studio very soon!
