Your Personal Photo Shoot Experience
If I could put every woman in my studio for a beauty session, I would. All I want is for everyone to feel their best, and see themselves the way I see them, and the way everyone else sees them. Children are born without judgement. They look at their mothers and see the most beautiful human they've ever known. These photo sessions are for them. For the children who see their mothers for who they really are. A wife, a daughter, a sister - who is loved, and is seen as a gorgeous woman full of light. These photo sessions are for those husbands. Those parents, those sisters. For the woman who fought cancer, who fought an eating disorder, who escaped an abusive relationship, who has never truly felt beautiful but is making a life change. These photo sessions are for you. Because, you are beautiful. I want to empower you to feel comfortable in front of my lens and in your own skin
What to Expect
I like to have an in person consultation with my clients & whomever they'll be photographed with, before scheduling the photo shoot. My goal is to understand exactly how you want to be photographed, what vision you have for yourself and what you hope to get out of the experience.
We will go over ideas for outfits and things you can do to prepare yourself for your photo shoot, as well as view the product that will be available to you at your in person Image Reveal.
Then all you have to do is pick a date and time that work best!
When you arrive, we will take a before image and then you will undergo the expertise of our professional hair and make-up team who will help bring your vision to life.
I will start to map out the photo shoot based on the outfits that you brought, and walk you through how things will go.
Plan for the entire session to take up to 4 hours. The extent of your hair style and number of outfits can lessen the time.
I will then guide you, every step of the way, into poses that will best compliment you and the images that you dreamed of.
Within the weeks following your photo shoot, your images will be retouched and printed in preparation for you to see them.
We will set up a personal viewing appointment for you to come in and see the results of the magic you helped to create. If you want to bring your significant other to this reveal, you are more than welcome, but please just let me know ahead of time so that they can be educated and prepared on the pricing. Sometimes it's a little overwhelming to learn the prices for the first time at the time of the reveal.
You are not expected to purchase anything, so there is nothing to fear. If you love your images, you're going to want to purchase them, and it's my job to take photos of you that you'll love so that you will want to own them all.
You are under no obligation to make any purchases, nor are you obligated to purchase all images presented to you at the time of the reveal. Product pricing is available during our consultation, and by the time you have viewed your final images, you should be prepared with a budget in mind. Payment plans are available.
$150 session fee includes professional hair and makeup services & the photo shoot of your dreams for two!
