FIRST CONTACT

Whether you are emailing me or dropping a message into my DM, just saying hi could be the most challenging step for most people, but for me, I can't wait to meet you and welcome you to my studio. We can set a time for the consultation and to speak about how you would like to be photographed.

CONSULTATION/TELL YOUR STORY

We can speak over the phone or meet via Zoom or FaceTime. My favorite is in person because that way we can really get to know each other. I will tap into what your needs are. Each person is different and would like different results, so it is crucial for me to learn more about you. 

 

During our consultation you will see my studio and my product options. This is when you can ask me anything you want about the experience. I am sure you have a ton of questions. We will discuss pricing and I will explain more about the photo shoot.

AFTER THE CONSULTATION

Once you are excited about the photo shoot and book. I will send you an invoice for the initial sitting fee. After it is paid, I will send you a styling guide magazine showing you how to begin preparing for your shoot. You will also be given some inspirational ideas for makeup, hair, and clothes that you love.

Each artist I work with is professional, friendly and an expert at their artistry. You will be in very good hands!

AFTER THE SHOOT

We will sit for a while and talk about how you feel. Normally, clients are feeling relaxed and happy. They are usually texting their girlfriends or posting some behind the scene pictures of themselves getting ready especially when they see themselves for the first time all made up.

* Don't forget to make it a date night. You will be all dressed up and want to be seen. Enjoy!
