We’ll meet to go through a number of images to gather ideas on how you envision yourself being photographed. Additionally we’ll go over wardrobe and how to prepare for your session.

Your day will begin with professional hair and makeup starting at 10:00 a.m. Hair & make up will take place as you enjoy a cocktail and snacks, and lasts up to 2 hours.

During the day, you can enjoy soft drinks, sparkling or regular water. We also provide light snacks for you to go through the afternoon.

We’ll spend few hours photographing a number of different looks. I will be directing you through a number of poses and talking you through each step of the process.

Every image presented to you will be fully retouched to make you look your best.

Few days after photo session I’ll invite you back into my studio for reveal and ordering session.

Flexible payment plan options available and can be discussed during reveal session.
