1. Make sure your personal maintenance is taken care of such as hair color, haircuts, manicures are neautral, nails trimmed, spray tans, teeth whitening, eyebrow/facial waxing or tweezing, etc. for best results. Please see "My Partners" for a list of recomended local professionals that I trust.
2. You should arrive with a clean, moisturized face, and clean, dry hair. Hair should be prepped with a leave in conditioner and volume mousse at the roots.
3. Your outfits should be steamed or pressed, and organized on hangers with jewelry in clear baggies for easy set up, and access during your shoot.
4. Bring various options, necklines, textures, and colors for some variety. Avoid tight or dizzying prints. Don't forget to bring some jewlery options in various tones, styles and sizes.
No, I provide all the makeup and eyelashes. Unless you have a special allergy or preference, then please feel free to bring your own products. This will not affect the price of your session.
Clients may bring one guest to their shoot, as long as it does not cuase a distraction or hinder the atmosphere of the photoshoot. Please do not bring children/infants unless you have a nanny, friend, spouse to watch them during the session.
My editing style is minimal but effective. My coloring is light, bright, vibrant, and true.
I work hard to make sure my clients look like their best, most authentic versions of themselves. I will remove blemishes, soften lines, and smooth the skin just enough that you look amazing but realistic.
Please note: I will NOT warp, pinch, liquify, slim, extend, or falsley create what is or isn't there. With that said, I encourage my clients to have fun and use this session to fall in love with WHO they are, and not what media has subjected as "perfect".
I also ask my clients not to alter, filter or edit my images in any way that does not accurately reflect my work.
Here is the good news, you do not have to worry about it! I coach ALL of my clients on the best poses, posture, and facial expressions throughout the session. I will make sure we find what works and looks best for you.
