To begin, you’ll want to let me know that you’re ready to book your session! Once you sign your contract + pay your session booking fee, I will send you a detailed questionnaire and session prep guide to help you before your session even happens! I want you to be as prepared as possible to have an amazing experience.
On the day of your session, you’ll be greeted with a warm smile and/or hug (pshhh, I am totally a hugger!) Because you’re awesome! And it’s ok to be nervous - I promise it will be loads of fun and I have been told I’m funny… which keeps everything lighthearted and fun while you’re here! Together, we will go over all your outfits, decide if we want to use any of mine, and then start you in hair and makeup. Our talented in-house hair + makeup artist will create a perfect look just for you!
Once your look is complete, we’ll get you dressed and then start the session! During your session, I will help pose you literally from head to toe and coach you on getting those steamy facial expressions (I have the best little trick!). I will do all the hard work for you, including showing you exactly how to pose….so you will nail it every time!
My goal is to build up your trust, confidence and comfort level between the time you walk in the door until the time you leave. If you are uncomfortable in a pose, or feel like you're being pushed too far out of your comfort zone, please speak up, and we will modify or move on. The entire session (including hair and makeup) usually takes around 3-3.5 hours. This give us ample time for us to get to know each other a little more before the shoot.
AFTER YOUR SESSION
After your session, we will schedule your viewing + ordering appointment, usually about 2 weeks after your shoot. We will go over all your images together and you can decide on which images you love and how you want to display them! You’ll be able to see sample products before and after your session, as well as on the day of your ordering session.
If you are in a rush, I do offer a Same Day Viewing option available as well; please let me know if you desire this option, and also plan for an additional few hours to spend with me.
Once your order has been placed, we’ll wait to receive it at the studio for a final inspection. I’ll let you know as soon as your artwork is available for pick up!
