Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Our non-refundable retainer fee is $299+GST. It includes hair, makeup and 2.5 hours of shooting time. You decide on photo purchases at an Ordering Appointment 1-2 weeks after your session. There is no obligation to purchase but most women love their photos and invest in custom art pieces such as luxury albums, canvases, metal prints and folio boxes. Our products and packages start at $795. In-house, no-interest payment plans are available and commonly used.
Can I keep my images private?
We do not use your images for marketing unless you give us permission. You fill out and sign a contract indicating your preferences around the use of your images. Obviously, we would like to use our clients' photos for marketing because so many women are empowered by seeing others' photos; however, we value and respect our clients' privacy.
In the spirit of mutual respect, we also ask that if our clients share images we have have created for them, they link back to our website or social media profiles, or include a photo credit.
Do I have to bring my own makeup or do my own hair?
Nope! All you have to do is show up with your clothing and we take over from there! We will do you your hair and makeup to suit the photography environment and process. Because we will be changing your pose every few seconds, your hairstyle has to suit the constant movement. We will style it with a loose curl so that we get a messy bedhead look as we go along. For makeup, we use MAC products to achieve a mid-smoky eye with false eyelashes. Foundation and contouring palettes help create a youthful and flawless complexion. We want you to feel and look awesome before we ever put you in front of the camera!
Do I have to bring all my own outfits?
It is best for you to bring 5-7 outfits that you like and feel good in. However, we do have a number of studio outfits available if you would like to supplement your options. It is $40/outfit if you decide to use one of our outfits the day of your session. Whichever outfit you choose is yours to keep!
