About the Alpharetta Photographer Sophie De Backer

I remember flipping through pages of the picture albums when I was a child… I could literally spend hours looking at those black-and-white pictures of my parents and grand parents… What they looked like when they were my age, when they were teens, when they got married. I saw my daughter going through the same albums plus all the others.

There is something magical about pictures, don’t you think? Year after year the memories are refreshed. All these special moments in life with all these wonderful people that we love stay vivid in our mind. Every step of childhood, teen years with the culminating Senior Year, then college, engagement, wedding, pregnancy, birth,…

Watching my daughter contemplating pictures brought a revelation to me: I wanted to be a part of forming those incredible memories, I wanted to be the one helping make those moments unforgettable. I have always been passionate about photography, but that day something clicked in me, and it all made perfect sense.
I love interacting with people, so, if you decide to choose me as your photographer, I know we are going to do a fantastic job together and I can’t wait to meet you!!

When your heart is set, we will have our first conversation. I make it a priority to listen to you and what you want. What kind of pictures are you looking to obtain? Are you in search of a particular look? A particular location? Of course I am also there to guide you if you are unsure of what you would like. This is all so exciting, so much fun in perspective!! I promise that I will answer all of your questions to the best of my knowledge and together, we will prepare for an awesome session. We will schedule our “day” and you will then pay me the non-refundable session fee. We will also talk about clothes, make-up and all that good stuff. I will send you a contract for you to read and sign and I will sign mine as well, so that we both know what to expect from each other.
I will also send you some extra goodies for you to read: Tips on how to look your best and how to be best prepared for the big day, what to bring (accessories, props…).
A couple of days before the session, I will also send you a reminder of the time and location where we will be meeting. In the meantime, I will always be available for last minute questions.
The shoot is really a fun time that we spend together. This is when the craziness of everything is put on hold, and when quality time, mutual respect and understanding is the focus. It is a very special moment and I take pride in making sure that everything is ideal to ensure the best pictures. Classic pictures, fun pictures, fashion pictures, everything is possible!!
After this first amazing part of our journey together, I will work on your images and prepare them for your viewing. Between one and 2 weeks later, we will meet again to look together at the final images-you can expect to see between 15 and 30 of them.There will generally be colored pictures with some black and white pictures too. If you get overwhelmed with choice, don’t worry, I am always there to guide you. This process is made as simple as possible.
After you pay for your order, it typically takes about 2 weeks for your order to be delivered to you (sometimes a little longer with albums). I only work with the best Professional labs because I truly think you deserve the best!

Gosh, I talked a lot!! Now it’s your turn to talk and let me know what your heart wishes.
Can’t wait to hear from you!
Cheers,

Sophie
