WHAT HAPPENS IF I'M LATE TO MY PHOTOSHOOT?
I ask that you please arrive on time at your photoshoot, or else the amount of time you arrived late for will be subtracted from the time we have to shoot. I value my time and I don't have unlimited access to most locations, so I need to follow my schedule.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR THE PHOTOSHOOT?
You will receive a guide with suggestions and ideas on how to prepare for your photoshoot. You do not have to follow my instructions or prepare at all, but this will assure the best results possible. I love when you discuss your ideas with me prior to our photo session and I love working with you on creative ideas. I do not take phone calls but if you want to talk about it, feel free to send me a voice message on Instagram.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
I do. The location has to be fully paid to book a photoshoot, whether I provide the location or you do. The amount of the deposit varies on the package selected (I usually make it an even number).
CAN I BRING A FRIEND OR A PET?
Unfortunately, I prefer not. It will be much more productive if there is only you and I in the studio while we're creating. It will allow for smoother communication. For pets, it depends on the situation, therefore, please inquire.
WHO WILL SELECT MY FINAL PHOTOS?
You will select them yourself from the gallery of unedited watermarked photos I will send you. If you're having trouble choosing, I will be happy to help you narrow it down.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE RETOUCHING PROCESS?
All final images will be sent in high-resolution format. Blurring of the face and tattoos are included. You will receive the unblurred versions as well. Removal of small tattoos is possible. Bigger tattoos are usually blurred, but they can be removed at an extra cost. The lighting and mood of the photos will done according to my personal style by default, but you can make a request for something particular (per example: a darker, moodier photo or particularly bright and airy result). Blemishes and small imperfections will be removed. The retouching also includes realistic skin evening and smoothing. Body-reshaping is also done in a natural manner by default, keeping the proportions realistic while accentuating your best features. If you have a request regarding the amount of retouching you want done, I will happily respect it, as long as proportions are kept realistic.
I AM NOT A MODEL, CAN I STILL SHOOT WITH YOU?
Most of my clients have very little to no modeling experience. Great photos can always be created no matter your level of mobility, experience, age or gender.
HOW LONG SHOULD I BOOK FOR MY PHOTOSHOOT?
A lot of factors can influence the time necessary for a photoshoot. It depends on how comfortable you are in front of the camera, whether we have worked together before, how many outfits you would like me to capture, your budget for the location and how talkative you are. I like to take the necessary time to produce the best possible images of you and this is why the time suggested for the packages are rather long. I am pretty flexible on how long the photoshoot takes and if you think you need more time than my suggested maximum, it is not a problem at all. If you think you need less time than what your package includes, that's absolutely not a problem either.
DO YOU SHOOT OUTDOOR?
If the weather permits, I have no problem shooting outdoor.
I HAVE A PARTICULAR IDEA, CAN YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN?SHOOT OUTDOOR?
I love creative photoshoots and I would be more than happy to do everything I can to make your idea happen. Please contact my via email to discuss it further. i also love when clients share mood boards or particular poses they want to try.
WHO WILL ACCESS MY IMAGES?
Only me will have access to your images. Your privacy is very important to me and unless specified, your images won't be shared.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
I will send to you your gallery of unedited photos within 72-hours after our photoshoot. From the date you will have made your final pick, you will receive the final images within 2 to 4 weeks, with an average of 3 weeks. Special group events where most participants pick 10+ images to be edited can take longer, but will be sent in batches of 5 to allow for less turnaround time for everyone. Rush-editing is sometimes possible, at an extra cost. Extra images will most of the time take more time as the work required was not initially planned in my schedule.
CAN I REQUEST MODIFICATIONS TO MY FINAL IMAGES?
Absolutely! I really want you to be comfortable requesting modifications and additional touch-ups to your final images. I will not change the editing style after what we initially agreed on, but I am more than happy to change details, within reason. It's very important to me that you love your final images and my dedication applies to every step of the process.
I AM NOT A SEX WORKER, CAN I STILL WORK WITH YOU?
Please do! Having your intimate portrait taken is such a beautiful experience that goes hand-in-hand with self-love and the connection your have with your body on so many levels.
