the process


We take pride in our projects, cultivating an intimate and collaborative relationships with our clients. To begin the process, clients fill out a discovery questionnaire that asks specific questions about the client's project and business goals for your photos. 

We take into account the client's personal story, merchandising and analytics to create visual content that captures the brand's vibe and vision. 2-3 days after the original questionnaire, a creative meeting is set to discuss the project in depth with the client and review answers from the questionnaire. 



After the brainstorming meeting, Darden Creative creates a mood board & photo shoot treatment recap detailing amount of photos, props, color usage, focus for each photo. The photo shoot treatments are then reviewed by the client within 48 hours and confirmed. Once confirmed, Darden Creative sources props, backdrops, etc. in preparation of the photo shoot. If you are a product based business, or have personal props of your own to include, no worries, ship them to my studio in D.C. 

On photo shoot day, Darden Creative creates lifestyle stock content for the brand, following treatment confirmed by client. Client is required on set to unless otherwise noted.  Once completed, Darden Creative reviews and edits selections. The final selects are then sent to the client for review. Darden Creative is responsible to send first selects to client 5-7 business days from photo shoot day.



During this process the client reviews selections and provides request for edits. Edits include tuning (brightness, saturation, tint, vibrance, etc). Clients can make up to 5 edit requests total. If a reshoot is needed, there is an additional fee. Darden Creative will send edits within 2-3 business days.

Once images are confirmed, a payment link will be sent to Client to process final payment. Once payment has been processed, a link to the hi-res images will be sent to the client.
