Do you have questions about an upcoming photo shoot?

You are not alone!

Here are the most commonly asked questions:

How Long is a Photo Shoot?

How long will the shoot take? A shoot usually lasts between 60-90 minutes. We often move at a quick pace to give you a lot of options when we are complete.

Some people would like to move at a more liesurely pace or would like to change locations between shoots. These shoots may take up to 2 and a half hours up to a half day.

Most people are happy with a 60-90 minute shoot.

Arrival Time

When should I arrive? We will be giving you an arrival time. But as a general rule, you should arrive 10-15 minutes before your start time.

If you are getting your makeup done as part of your session, you will begin with the makeup artist about an hour and a half before the photo shoot will begin.

If you arrive late, even for the makeup artist, this will effect the amount of time we have for the photo shoot so make sure to be on time!

How Many Looks Do I Get?

How many outfits do I bring? I would suggest that you bring at least 2 complete outfits that you feel happy and sexy in. Feeling sexy is when you’re feeling good… walking tall… and strutting your stuff… it doesn’t mean that what you are wearing needs to be short or low cut… When you feel happy in your clothes, it will show in the photos.

Your photo shoot begins when you pack!

You are welcome to bring more clothes than you need. I can facilitate your wardrobe if we do not have a stylist.

What Clothes Do I Bring?

What kind of clothes do I bring? What you bring depends on what you would like to show your audience! Are we shooting for your business? Are we shooting for you? Are we shooting for your lover or fiancé? You may dress very differently depending on your audience. However, there are a few general rules of thumb…

Keep it simple. We want the focus on you!

Well fitted clothes are your friend. Baggy isn’t flattering in photos.

Stay with solid colors.

Consider wearing color!

Rules are made to be broken… how do you feel in your clothes?

How Much Does it Cost?

60-90 minute sessions are $850 US and include the photo shoot and file delivery.

If you would like a more liesurely shoot, 2 hour- 2 and a half hour sessions are available for $1250.

Time does not include your hair and makeup time*. Hair and Makeup may change from location to location. We will have details based on availability.

What About Retouching?

When your pictures are delivered, they will be color corrected and minimally retouched, like the pictures that you’ve seen on this site! Many people are happy using their files in this state. Other people would like additional retouching.

I work with a retoucher for additional retouching. Additional retouching is offered at $100 per hour. Many retouching requests are handled in a single hour. More extensive requests such as removing tattoos may take longer.
