We will start by meeting in person or over the phone -- this is when I'll ask you to tell me all about how you'd like to be photographed! This is a crucial step in designing your custom Session. I'll go over the whole experience with you in more depth, and answer any questions you have. From there, we'll get you booked in and schedule your Wardrobe Consultation, Session, and Reveal & Purchasing Appointment.
This is a time for us to dive into your wardrobe and the Studio Wardrobe to decide exactly what you'd like to wear during your Session! We typically do 3-4 looks in the studio. I will ask you to bring your favorite clothing from home & may have you try some on to make sure that it matches the feel we're going for and is camera ready. This appointment will take the anxiety out of deciding what to wear & pack for your Session.
The morning of your Session, you'll wake up feeling excited & prepared because you'll know exactly what to bring with you! When you arrive at the studio, your favorite music will be playing and light snacks and beverages will be available. My hair & makeup team will be ready to polish & pamper you so you feel confident and camera-ready! Once hair & makeup is complete, I will guide you through poses that are flattering for your unique shape. I recommend making plans (a date with your significant other, or maybe a girl's night out!), because you will look and feel amazing after your Session.
Reveal & Purchasing Appointment
2-3 weeks after your Session, I will invite you back to the studio to see the collection of photographs we created together for the first time! This is when you'll decide what you would like to purchase.
What makes a Session with me different?
Each Session is custom based on your needs & desires! No two sessions are exactly the same. I want you to have portraits or head shots that are unique to you -- not that look like everyone else's.
I also include complimentary professional hair & makeup in every Session! This is another key aspect of the process because not only is it an all-out pamper session, it takes any worries you may have about your skin acting up or your hair being weird when you wake up the morning of your Session away. My artists are incredibly talented and know how to work with all skin tones & hair types. I am a makeup artist myself and have worked on bridal teams in the past, so the talented artists I have curated to work with you are the best of the best!
The investment starts at $500 and includes an in-person or phone consultation with me, a Wardrobe Consultation (in-person or via Facetime/Skype if you live several hours away), your custom-designed Portrait Session with multiple outfits and coaching from me to achieve your best angles & expressions, complimentary professional hair & makeup, signature image retouching, and your Reveal & Purchasing Appointment -- complete with my gift to you: $200 credit towards a collection of your favorite photographs!
After your Session, I will invite you back to the studio to see the collection of photographs we created together for the first time, and this is when you will decide what you would like to purchase! Collections of archival, matted photographs start at $1125.
You only buy what you love, and it's my job to create a collection of photographs that you fall head over heels for.
Payment plans are available for Collections. Please inquire for details.
