DO I USE NATURAL OR STUDIO LIGHTING?

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A BEAUTY/BOUDOIR SESSION
Well, most women tend to be pretty nervous when they arrive. That’s completely normal. After introductions we look through the wardrobe options you brought and talk about ideas. After deciding what type of tasty beverage you would like to sip on and what kind of music you’d like to listen to, you will get comfortable in the makeup chair and take an hour to just relax; you’d be surprised how incredibly calming a makeover really is. After your beauty treatment is a your photo shoot followed by a 30 minute break (aka more chill time for you) and then your Viewing & Ordering Session. It’s a full day of self love. You’re worth it. Be sure to watch my behind the scenes videos to get a good feel of what happens during a session.
DO I PHOTOGRAPH FAMILIES AND CHILDREN?
Absolutely! I began my career as a Child & Family Photographer and continue to hold family sessions for many new and returning clients. All Family Sessions include a full makeover for Mom (additional makeovers can be added on for family members), followed by an hour long photo shoot with up to two clothing and setting changes. Family sessions include a variety of shots including individual, sibling, parent & child and group shots.
THAT ALL SOUNDS GREAT, BUT MAYBE YOU REALLY JUST WANT AN IMPRESSIVE HEADSHOT?
I can help! I offer quick and easy Headshot Sessions for both professional and personal use. Please see more information on these sessions here.
DO I ALWAYS PUBLICLY SHARE IMAGES?
Absolutely not! You have complete control over this. Some women are honored to have their images on my website while others wish to keep their images private. Either way is perfect.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Full sessions typically last 2-2.5, Mini and Headshot Sessions vary.
DO I PROVIDE CLOTHING?
Nope, but I will provide you with tons of preparation material on what to expect during a session as well as what to wear.
HOW WILL YOU SEE YOUR FINAL IMAGES?
I will hand pick, lightly edit and print proofs of the very best 30-40 images in both color and B&W. Because viewing final images can be slightly overwhelming, I will present these in a private, in person Viewing & Ordering Session complete with my tried and true process of elimination and, of course, light refreshments. Out of state clients will receive 24 hour access to a private, password protected online gallery for image viewing.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD YOU BOOK A SESSION?
Full session needs to be held at least 4 weeks before you would like your final printed product for gift giving or personal keepsake.
