Magazine Style Photoshoot

Frequently Asked Questions 

For                     For glamour portraits

What is a Pre Consultation?

Your first meeting will be a complimentary consultation where I like to learn 

more about you and your needs.  

We 'll talk about your desires, styling and your wardrobe.

This will take away all the stress of figuring out what to wear and will make your

experience run nice and smooth. 

After consultation, a non-refundable deposit will be required to book your session.

 

How long will the Photo session take?

The portrait experience will take about 2 to 3 hours, with 3 to 4 outfit changes.

I work with a professional makeup artist who flawlessly will apply beautiful

makeup in the style of your choice.  Make sure you plan to go out afterwards, you’ll be looking way too beautiful to just head home!

In addition to a pampering beginning, I will use every tool at my disposal to find the best angles, lighting and poses that will flatter you and result in stunning portraits.

What should I wear?

Everything you feel good and beautiful in. Bring different sets of clothes, we will look together during the shoot what is cool for the photo. Different textures always work well on the picture. You can think of an oversized off-shoulder sweater, long blouse, body stocking, turtleneck sweater, satin or lace tops. Bring this stunning evening dress which you have in your closet! 

As long as you feel good about it. If you are unsure about a piece of clothing, take it with you. Better safe than sorry….During the consultation I will help you choosing your outfits. 

 I'm not a model, the woman on your images look like models, 

can you still make beautiful images of me, without experience?

Thank you so much for the compliment! I'm sure my clients would love to hear this!

These are everyday women, just like you! Posing?  No worries...

I take great pride in my work and bring the absolute best in everyone!

I will guide you with posing throughout your session.

No matter your experience level, shape, size, or age.

You too will feel like a model for a day.

Do I have to buy a minimum of images?

After 2 or 3 weeks you will be invited for a viewing session of your portraits. Your most beautiful images will be showed to you.

Be sure to bring someone with you.

You then choose which photos you would like to buy.

So you only pay for the photos you want most. Making the choice is the most difficult part for most women.

You can make a decision to upgrade to one of the collection packages or enlargements for on your wall. Your images will be displayed in gorgeous hand-crafted faux leather folio boxes. I'm glad to offer digital files with every purchase you make. 

 

So what you buy is entirely up to you and there is absolutely no obligation of minimum buy.  With that being said, I will always do my best to create Portraits that you will love and don’t want to be without them. 

What about retouching? 

I have a scar from surgery/stretch marks/acne...

All women have flaws! I will retouch your images with delicate care to get the most natural you. We can even enhance and minimize areas you aren't happy with! Just let me know any specific concerns you may have and we're good to go! Retouching is included with all purchases.

Can I bring a friend?

I strongly recommend you do not bring anyone with you who is not being photographed. Often friends can be a distraction.  However, you are more than welcome to make it a fun girls' day out if she does a shoot too!

What does a photoshoot cost?

I think I'm ready...What's the next step?
