Frequently Asked Questions
I don't know how to pose. Will you guide me during a session?
Yes! You don't need to worry about a thing. I am well versed in posing and have even been known to strike a pose or two during our session together, too!.. Just don't laugh too hard. Lol. You can be sure that you always be guided to pose in a way that will flatter your features in the best lighting. You'll be given straightforward directions on how to pose, such as "relax your shoulders," "turn your chin ever so slightly to the right and bring your eyes towards me," etc.
What should I wear to my photo session?
When you book your portrait experience with us, you'll receive complimentary wardrobe consultation with our exclusive portrait prep-guide. We'll also send you emails that will give you ideas on where to shop, what to look for, and how to dress for your body type! Preparing a Pinterest board with outfit ideas that you love is also a great idea. From there, we can always guide you towards the best choices. Sessions typically allow time for 2-3 outfit changes. You are more than welcome to bring more outfits with you, and we will help you narrow it down. Some clients are bringing a suitcase full of stuff! LOL. It is always good to have options. But don't worry- You'll be super prepared by the time your session is here!
How long will it take to get my photos?
Product delivery takes an estimated 2-3 weeks from the date of your reveal/ordering appointment. The Digitals that are included in your package are available within 24 hours of package purchase.
Where will my photo session take place?
Sessions take place in our beautiful & professional home studio. Other locations (such as hotels, Airbnb's, or even your house) are available upon request and additional fees. Our home studio has multiple sets with different lighting, backdrops, and props to choose from.
I have problem areas. Do you photoshop?
Professional photo retouching is included in your portrait session. We specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed editing and can enhance your images to your liking. It's important to note that we are not here to change you into someone you are not. We are passionate about creating stunning images that celebrate your individuality.
Who will be at the shoot?
For all my sessions, I will have an all-female team to assist me. That being said, you can absolutely bring one friend with you (as long as you'll feel comfortable posing in front of them and they are there to cheer you on). Please note that if the person joining you is disrespectful to you, members of our team, or causes disruptions during your session, we will ask them to wait outside or at a local coffee shop for the duration of your session. That's a firm policy.
Do you offer hair & makeup styling?
Yes! a double makeover is included in all of our individual portrait sessions. If you want to have your best friend or someone special in your life join in on the fun, we are happy to include them for an additional $100 fee for their double makeover.
Do I have to use your makeup artist and hairstylist, or can I do my own?
Professional hair and makeup are included in all of my sessions. Makeup for studio photography is much different from the makeup you use for everyday life. It is also a way for you to relax before your shoot and feel pampered before we get started. My Amazing makeup and hair artist will work with you to create the perfect look for your portraits.
Do you provide wardrobe options at the studio?
For sanitary reasons, I do not offer a client closet. I keep a few accessories on hand. But just know, you are not alone in selecting your outfits! Depending on what you describe feeling most confident in, we'll discuss options together and plan your looks accordingly. I also provide all of my clients with a wardrobe guide, including an extensive list of online and in-person retailers. I curated this list with every body type in mind. :)
Do you photograph families?
I don't. the experience that I offer is focused primarily on individuals and couples. I like to work 1-on-1 with my clients to give them a personalized portrait experience.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We offer different payment plans on the curated product packages you choose during your reveal/ordering appointment. Please keep in mind that We will not deliver the product until the balance is paid in full.
How long will my session take?
Sessions are approximately 3.5 hours from start to finish. We will dedicate the first hour and a half to hair & makeup. The rest of the time will be for changing, shooting and just plain having fun.
Do you offer minis or group sessions?
I believe that every client deserves my full, undivided attention, so I do not offer mini sessions. To me, it just takes away from the whole experience of what a portrait session is all about.
Do you offer discounts?
We want you to love all of your images and not feel like you have to miss out, so we offer several discounted package options at your ordering appointment. Essentially, the more images that you love and buy, the more your discounted savings will be. We also have an AMAZING referral program!
