ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
As a photographer who's had professional photos done herself, I know that your photo shoot is a big deal. Like a really BIG deal.
Because of this, I have an obligation to everyone I photograph to answer your questions fully. If your question doesn't appear on this page, please reach out to me directly.
is hair & make up included? can I save money if i did it myself?
Professional hair styling and makeup is included in the session fee. This is a complimentary service so if you choose to do it yourself the price is still the same.
CAN I HAVE SOMEONE WITH ME AT MY SESSION?
Sometimes your best friend is exactly what you need and their support gives you the reassurance you need. Due to this I don’t mind at all! I DO ask that the friend not interfere with the shoot (running in to “touch you up” in between every shot, directing your posing, etc) as I will handle anything along those lines that needs done. That’s a firm policy.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
At the consultation I will provide you with a welcome packet that has tips about what to wear. We will discuss what photographs well and what doesn’t. I do have a small studio wardrobe you are welcome to look through and try on while you are here so you know in advance if they work for you or not. For a full portrait session you can bring 4-5 outfits that you love.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
An EPIC photoshoot takes time to plan and prepare. I like to book sessions 3-4 weeks out. However, if you are in a time crunch I will do my best to fit you in and make sure all the bases are covered. Saturday session's book out well in advance so I recommend contacting me 2-3 months in advance. Photo shoots only take place Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE THE PHOTO SHOOT?
If you are getting your hair cut or coloured, this should be done 10-14 days before your photo shoot. Your hands and nails will be in the pictures so you should consider getting your nails done beforehand. I recommend one solid colour (black/red/nude) or a classic french look.
WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE?
The session fee is due at the time of booking. This reserves your portrait session day and time. A week or 2 after the session you will return to view the images from your photo shoot and select which images and products you would like. Be prepared to fall in love with all of them! Payments for all products will be due that same day. AFTERPAY is available but I also have payment plans as well if you go past the Afterpay amount threshold.
WHAT IS A SESSION/BOOKING FEE AND WHAT DOES IT COVER?
A session fee secures your photo shoot date and must be paid at the time of the booking. AFTERPAY is available and you can use it to make payment for the session fee. Alternatively, you can also use Afterpay to make payment for your selected images.
if i cancel my booking, will i receive the session fee back?
I understand that sometimes life happens but I do ask, that if at all possible, you provide ideally 48 hours notice. Please note the session fee is non-refundable however, in the event that you need to reschedule, it is transferrable to a new date. The date transfer can only be applied once before the session fee is forfeited.
CAN I JUST GET THE DIGITAL FILES?
Absolutely! I offer separate digital-only packages as well. Just know that every purchased print or wall art comes with the matching digital file. The digital packages are the same price as my products and in some cases they're more expensive. You can download a copy of my price list here and compare for yourself.
HOW LONG UNTIL I GET TO SEE THE IMAGES?
A week or two after your portrait session you will return to my home studio to view your images. The prints that you see on this day, will be ready to go home with you immediately. Any product or wall art orders will be placed soon thereafter and can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks depending on the product.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Sessions start at 10am and finish at approximately 2pm. The first half hour is for getting settled and going over any finer details. You’ll be in hair and make up for 45-60mins with the remaining time used for the photo shoot.
WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?
I proudly offer the absolute highest quality products offered to professional photographers. My signature product is a Folio Box made of genuine distressed leather tailor-made in Italy. I also offer chromealuxe metal wall art prints, display stands and smaller gift boxes. See here for a list of products.
