FAQ

A Few Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I book my session?

It’s very simple – email or call and we’ll schedule a date. We will choose a location or your session can take place in the studio and design a session to fit you perfectly. You will be sent an online contract to e-sign and instructions for paying the session fee.

What should I wear?

Unless going for a very specific “look,” try to choose simple, comfortable clothing that will let you – and not your wardrobe – shine. If you’re uncertain about what to wear, bring a few options and we’ll help you choose what will read best on camera.

Steer clear of distracting patterns or prints and avoid logos if at all possible. A pop of color can be effective, however — choose the tones that best complement your hair color and eyes. If your clothing is sheer, make sure to bring proper undergarments (undershirts, camisoles, etc.) so you’re not flashing more skin than you expect. Also, if a garment needs to be ironed, please try to do that beforehand.

Is Hair and Makeup Required?

This is not a requirement, however, if you want to look and feel your best, I can recommend a stylist that I’ve worked with in the past. Men can also take advantage of a stylist to bring out the best in them.

When is payment due?

Your session fee is due at the time of booking and payment for print, product, and additional digital file orders are due when you place your order through your individualized online gallery.

What form of payment do you accept?

Cash, check, credit cards are all accepted forms of payment. Sales tax applies.

How soon after my session will I be able to view my pictures?

A password-protected online gallery of your images will be available within 5 days after your session unless otherwise agreed upon.
