I’m here to help you, every step of the way!
All custom Photoshoots include a consultation & planning session, a guidebook & packet with information on how to prepare for your shoot, a detailed shot list, a professional Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist, multiple outfit changes & wardrobe styling assistance, & more.
Every custom shoot includes a complimentary consultation that takes place before you commit to booking. This consultation happens either in-person at my studio or via Zoom - this gives me the chance to get to know you, hear about your vision, answer your questions, talk strategy, & begin the process of designing a custom photoshoot that fits your image needs.
Prep Guide & Packet
During the weeks leading up to your photoshoot, it’s important to plan ahead in order to make sure that your shoot goes smoothly! After you book your shoot, I’ll send you a Welcome Packet, a Guidebook, & will also give you access to your online Client Portal. These resources include plenty of tips & suggestions that will help you to be fully prepared for your shoot.
Deciding what to wear & what to bring is often one of the most overwhelming parts of planning a photoshoot! I’ll provide you with a detailed wardrobe planning guide that will help you to select the perfect outfits for your photoshoot. You’ll also have the option to book an additional Wardrobe Consultation with my Wardrobe Stylist to get some extra help with planning outfits.
In-Studio &/or On-Location
Are you envisioning classic, timeless portraits with simple backgrounds? Great - Studio it is. Want an outdoor location with golden, glowing light, a unique landscape, and fields to run through? Or maybe, my personal favorite… you want a little bit of both? Either way, I got you. Let’s go adventure - I’m here to make your visions come to life!
Hair & Makeup STYLING
I include professional makeup & hairstyling services with every custom shoot - click here to learn more! If you’re nervous about having someone else style your hair & makeup, don’t worry - my stylists always begin by asking how you normally wear your hair & makeup & from there we all communicate together to ensure that you feel completely comfortable with how you look.
Direction & Posing
Believe it or not, the majority of people I work with have had little to no previous experience with being in front of a camera. It’s my job to coach you into simple, flattering poses that will make you look comfortable & at ease in all of your photos. I’ll guide you through your photoshoot with gentle posing direction, & we’ll move at a relaxed pace so that you’re never feeling rushed.
Retouching & Editing
I work with a professional retoucher & have my own specialized method of color toning that will ensure that your final images look flawless & beautiful. You won’t need to worry about stray hairs, blemishes, etc. - I’ll edit all of your images with a clean, natural look so that you’ll look like the most polished, authentic version of yourself.
