HELLO, gorgeous! You have some questions for me?
Where are you located? I live in Langley, BC and shoot on location.
How do I book my session with you?
A $100 dollar non-refundable retainer is due at the time of booking. Once we pick your session date I require $100 dollars to book your session. The retaining fee is non-refundable, but should you cancel, you can apply it to another session.
How long does it take to receive my finished product and images from my session with you?
I would allow 8 weeks if you are ordering albums, so please book your sessions in advance. The vendors I choose to use create only the finest products by hand, and this process isn’t easily rushed.
I am a bit nervous about my boudoir session, will you see me nude?
Only if you want to be nude! All boudoir sessions are based on your comfort level. I have to tell you, I am a Mom of six kids, and just know I am comfortable when you are comfortable. I have been through a lot and seen a lot. A lot. Feel free to bring a robe or a large scarf to cover up if you so desire.
Can I bring along somebody else?
I prefer that when shooting your session, that you do so on your own. Sometimes with friends present, clients are more focussed on their friend, and cannot settle into the process of the session. Feel free to bring them along when you are getting your styling done, and then they can go for coffee and pick you up after your session if you wish.
How many outfits can I bring?
I would suggest bring too much stuff, rather than not enough. In a boudoir or portrait session, the ideal would be three outfits, with variations. And, I suggest starting in your least favourite of the three.
What should I bring with me to my session?
When you book your session, we will be sure to go through your wardrobe must-haves.
How far do you travel, you live in Langley right?
I am happy to travel to you, to your perfect-to-you location. If you want me to travel to you, say in California, or Hawaii, please contact me. I welcome on location, destination sessions!
Will you blog my photos or share my images anywhere online, like Facebook?
Only if you give me permission. Most of the women wish to share their images with the world. However, if you are in a profession where you cannot share, you can trust that I will not share online. As you wish.
Do you ever have specials, promotions, or discounts?
Infrequently, and you’ll be the first to know if you’re signed up for my EMAIL LIST/NEWSLETTER/FACEBOOK.
What about hair and make up?
To me, hair and make up is a must-do! If you want that fashion inspired editorial feel to your photos, like the ones you see on my site, hair and make up should be done by a professional. In fact, I would say choose one less outfit and go for the hair and make up first! It is not only a nice way to pamper yourself, but also the best way to shine (or not shine ;D) in your portraits. Hair and make up is the polish. The icing. Make up and hair for photography is different than your everyday stuff. If you are having a good hair day, and make up day that is going to for sure show in your images! Your confidence factor will be through the ROOF!
What else can I do to prepare before my session?
Be sure to have a fresh manicure and pedicure. Be sure to keep your skin soft with a moisturizer. If you colour your hair, touch up your roots! Even get your eyebrows done. Drink lots of water, get a good night’s rest before your session. Oh, and bring your model face.
If you have photos or images that you love, be sure to bring them along! I love inspiration! On the day of your session, be sure to wear loose clothing so that red marks such as your bra strap, underwear line, sock line etc. don’t show in your images. Chocolate will be on hand for energy.
Can I have ALL of the photos you took during my session?
Think of a magazine, now think of the cover shot. The photographers for the magazine will weed through ALL of the images, and select only the best. ONE shot will make it to the cover. I want you only seeing the best parts of you. It is my job to make the decisions, and hand select the best of the best for you. And when it comes to ordering, you will thank me. It will be hard to pick from your gallery! Usually you will see between 10-50 images depending on your selected collection.
