WHAT TO EXPECT
BEFORE: You browse through my website, imagining what it would be like to be the one in front of the camera, wondering how your images would come out. You contact me, we set a date for the shoot, I send you a link with tips on how to prepare and what type of outfits to bring with you. We get together in person or on the phone so we can get to know one another and I can understand your vision for your dream photo shoot. If you don’t have a vision for a dream photo shoot, I ask you a lot of questions. I listen more than I talk (that’s hard!). I help map out the looks and ideas. You fill out an online styling questionnaire that is carefully reviewed by my amazing stylist. The two of you have a pow-wow phone conversation discussing wardrobe and accessories. She helps you figure out what you have that can be used, and creates a private pintrest board with ideas for your dream outfits along with some shopping suggestions. You get more and more excited about your shoot. In the week before your Ultimate Girl’s Day Out at my studio, I send you a confirmation email to make sure all details are nailed down and to address any questions.
DURING: The day arrives. I make you some coffee or we pop open some bubbly or wine, and get you pampered with professional hair and make up. I go through the wardrobe choices you brought while you’re being glammed up. We start shooting, you feel nervous, then loosen up, then have fun. You change outfits. We laugh. You hold poses that feel awkward and hurt but look fucking awesome. I guide every inch of you. I pose your figure to showcase what you love and minimize what you may be self conscious about. I get excited and do funny little dances when special yumminess is captured. You feel and look amazing, and leave the studio really excited.
AFTER: About 2 weeks later we meet up for a champagne portrait reveal. We catch up, then view your images. We discuss which product I offer best showcases your portraits and how you want to present them (wall art at different sizes, albums and exquisite folios). You get to hold and caress all of the different luxurious options and choose what fits your style. You look again at your portraits. You’re excited to share. You feel on top of the world.
