I hear every reason why a woman feels insecure in front of a camera. “I’m too old.” “No one wants to see that.” “I need to lose 20 lbs first.” “I don’t have someone to give the pictures to.” “Maybe some day.” “I wouldn’t even know what to wear.” “I don’t feel sexy.” Have you ever said one of these things to yourself? That’s where we can help. Let’s push those insecurities aside and do something totally empowering. To witness a woman see her photos for the first time, and break down in joyous tears, is incredibly rewarding. That moment she truly sees herself and realizes she’s listened to the voice in her head for too long. When you’re ready to ignore the excuses that hold you back… I would love to give you this experience!
When you schedule your session, you will receive a confirmation email with the date and time of your photo shoot and a list of what to bring and how to prepare for your big day.
We will also schedule your complimentary fitting appointment approximately 1-2 weeks before your photo shoot. You’re welcome to bring items from home including intimate apparel, stilettos, accessories, props, and anything that has special meaning to you. You’re welcome to try on anything in my studio wardrobe or you can have my creative team design something for a truly customized experience.
We will select 3-4 of your favorite outfits, but we will get through as many wardrobe changes as time allows. The fitting appointment will help you feel confident in your wardrobe choices and look forward to a stress-free day of pampering!
HAIR & MAKEUP
On the morning of the photo shoot, you’re welcome to arrive with your hair washed and dried, and a clean face. Moisturizer is fine, but please don’t use any other beauty products. We will be waiting for you at your arrival time to help carry anything in that you brought with you.
Once you’re settled, we’ll take your Before photo and you’ll be introduced to our professional hair & makeup artist extraordinaire, Ashley! You’ll be shown a makeup progression chart so you can select the look you want. We’ll consult with you on how you wish to wear your hair. If you’d like to do something outside your comfort zone, we will be happy to give you the red carpet treatment! Everyone gets false eyelashes unless you have lash extensions or use a lash booster.
Your personal assistant will have already pulled the wardrobe you selected at your fitting appointment. We’ll help you select jewelry, shoes, and accessories to match each wardrobe change.
Are you ready for a workout? I’m just kidding, but I will make you work muscles that may be been dormant for many years. I like to joke that a photo shoot is like a 2-hour Pilates class (#kiddingnotkidding). I’ll be directing you every step of the way so you won’t need to worry about a thing. Our job is to help you feel comfortable and enjoy the experience. I’ll even show you the back of my camera a few times so you know how beautifully your images are turning out.
So, let’s crank up that music and have some chocolate covered strawberries. This is your big day and we’re here to serve you. I want to erase any negative self talk you’ve ever had with yourself and kick those insecurities to the curb. You are amazing and no detail is too small to make this a perfect day for you.
After your session, you’re welcome to change back into your street clothes. Be sure to plan something fun that evening… because you’ll feel fabulous! And before you leave… don’t forget your hugs. My team loves to hug!
You’ll be invited back for your viewing and ordering appointment within 3-4 weeks from your session date. If you’re coming from a distance, a remote session can be arranged. This is an exciting day where you’ll be able to see your images for the very first time! Be sure to set aside a couple hours so you can enjoy selecting your beautiful images. Bring any decision makers with you if someone will be helping you decide. It’s recommended that they’re shown the pricing guide before the viewing.
First, we will watch a music video with all of your photos and behind the scenes footage. Then we’ll go through each image individually and begin the selection process. Every image is professionally retouched. Most clients choose to purchase and album or folio box with multiple images, but I also offer wall enlargements and specialty items as add-ons. You order will be given the utmost care in additional design work and packaging. Your order will be ready for pick-up or shipment within 2-3 weeks.
