Rena Meystel Photography is all about individualized attention to you and your needs.  From start to finish, we guide you through the whole process.  Read below to better understand what to expect when choosing Rena Meystel Photography.  

1.     Pre-consultation Phone Session

Before your session, you have the option to book a pre-session phone consultation.  You may want to schedule this appointment to discuss wardrobe options, as well as location choices.  Regardless of whether or not you choose to have a phone session, we will provide a great wealth of information and helpful tips for us to get the most out of the session via email.


2.    The Session

Indoor sessions take place in our Chicago studio and outdoor sessions take place in the general Chicago area. Sessions typically last 1-2 hours, as it mainly depends on the number of subjects photographed.  The session is relaxed, calm, and a one-of-a-kind experience.  You will never feel rushed and you can be certain there will be many great pictures to choose from.

Changing clothing mid-session is recommended to get a fresh new look.  If changing your clothes is too much of a challenge, layering clothing may be an easier option and works just as well.  Changing clothing reflects the different personalities of a child and can bring a different feel to the photograph.


3.    Guided In-person Ordering Session

We offer premier in person ordering sessions where together we view and sort your photographs.  This session takes place in your home or in our studio.  During the ordering session, we help you choose your favorite images and we guide you through the different printing options.  At Rena Meystel Photography, we can measure your walls and show you exactly how your chosen pictures can look on your wall!  There is no more guessing what sizes to order or how to place the photos on your wall.  We are here to do all the work for you to ensure your photos are showcased in the best possible way.  One more point- each image that you order is hand edited.  Your eyes will sparkle, your teeth will be whitened and trust me, everyone will look their best.    


4.     Your Pictures Are Ready for Pick-up!

Approximately 4 weeks after the ordering session, your pictures will be ready for pick-up.  You will receive an email notification letting you know they are waiting for you!  You are now ready to take your pictures home and enjoy them for many years to come!

At Rena Meystel Photography, we believe photography is an art, as well as a luxury service.  When you book your session, you will experience the difference.  It's an experience you will never forget or regret.
