Q: I AM INTERESTED IN A SESSION, BUT I'M SO NERVOUS!!
Everyone is nervous to begin, to commit to this amazing experience. We hear over and over again that it was so worth it! When women come to us and a lot of them have butterflies, they're nervous and excited. Every client is stepping out and trying something new, something brave. But oh my goodness, is it worth it! Read the testimonials, read About me and why I started offering sessions. It's because this is not just a photo session, it's an experience, one that can truly change how you feel about yourself. For me personally, it helped me to see how beautiful I was, to feel more confident and see myself as a woman - I have many other titles too - wife, mom, kid chauffeur, house cleaner - and most of those I am very proud to be (not the house cleaner part!). But to see myself this way brought out an inner confidence I didn't know I was lacking. So if you're thinking about it, do it, don't waste anymore time wishing and wondering, do it. You're worth it.
Q: THE WOMEN THAT YOU WORK WITH ARE BEAUTIFUL. I'M AFRAID I WON'T LOOK THEM
The real answer to that is, I don't want you to look like anyone else but you. But honestly, all these women are just women like you and me. I work really hard to pose you in the best way so that you look amazing. You do have to trust me, but I promise I won't let you down. There is nothing like when I show a client the back of my camera for the first time. Most women are so surprised and say something like "Oh wow! That's me?! I can't believe how good I look!" And yes, darling, you will feel that sense of awe to your core.
Q: HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
I suggest booking your session 2 months prior to when you need your finished artwork. I only take a select number of sessions each month, so I suggest booking as soon as possible and would recommend at least 2 to 3 months in advance. sessions are something to prepare for, anticipate, plan for. When you book months in advance that gives you an opportunity to get your outfit ideas together, to shop and get new items in. You also have time to browse through the different lingerie boutiques that we recommend. If you know in advance that you want to grab a session date 6 months in advance, great! Let's set it up. Keep in mind that the first time you see your edited images a 1-2 weeks after your session, and then it takes a few weeks for your products to come after that. Give your self ample time if you need your finished artwork by a certain date.
Q: DO CLIENTS DO THEIR OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Professional hair and makeup is included in the session so you get to sit back, relax and get pampered before your session. The Hair and Makeup Artists come right to the studio, so you can show up with a clean face and clean hair and they'll take care of you. My stylists know how to get you ready for your closeup.
Q: WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?
We have a very private space compete with shooting area, changing area, bathroom, and makeup space. On your session day, you arrive at our studio and everything is taken care of. Relax while our hair and makeup artist pamper you and get you ready for your session. We'll chat and look over any outfits you brought, you can also select anything that interests you in our client closet. When you're ready, we'll start your session.
Q: WHEN DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
