the process


We take pride in our projects, building a collaborative relationships with our clients. To begin the process, you will complete an assessment with specific questions about the your project and business goals for your photos. 

Immediately after the assessment, you'll be directed to schedule a meeting to discuss in more detail your project and make sure Darden Creative is the right fit for your business. 



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. This recap/proposal is sent and reviewed by the client within 24 hours. 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.  Darden Creative is responsible to send first selects to client 3-5 business days from photo shoot day.Once completed, Darden Creative reviews and edits selections. The final selects are then sent to the client for review. 



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 re-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.
