WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET AND PHOTOGRAPH YOU!
SO WHAT'S NEXT?
Now that you've booked your session we'll contact you within one week to get to know you a bit over our booking phone call, help you choose your studio date, and get the rest of your contact info so we can send you your session agreement that confirms your session date and procedures. All you need to do is review it, sign it, and pop it in the mail to us within 5 days. If we do not receive it within 5 business days your session date will be removed from the studio calendar, so please let us know if you may have a delay on your end (we understand life gets in the way sometimes, just give us a heads up via text, phone or email - communication is key). Once we have your signed session agreement on file your date is officially secured on our calendar and the fun begins!
Don't forget to complete and include your What Makes You Happy questionaire that we send with your booking agreement, as this will help us get to know you and prep for your session even better! We will also send you our digital "Prepping for Your Session" brochure which is packed with all sorts of tips, ideas and timelines for scheduling prep items like mani/pedis, hair touch-ups, etc.
DO YOU NEED TO SIGN THE MODEL RELEASE THAT COMES WITH THE BOOKING AGREEMENT?
That's entirely up to you and your comfort level. It's not mandatory by any means! Many of our clients sign them, because they're so proud of their images and all the work that they put into doing their session. But some of our clients do not, for various reasons. We also have a modified image release that is available to clients at their Image Premier which limits usage to certain images, certain platforms, etc. So you're in complete control of what happens with your gorgeous pictures! If you have any questions or concerns just give us a call and we can talk about them.
NEED HELP WITH WARDROBE?
We're here to help! The private Pinterest board we'll set up to collaborate your shoot together is going to be a huge help to you when it comes to narrowing down what type of items you'd like to be photographed in. Plus, we're only a phone call away if you have questions or need advise! Going shopping and not sure which color bra to buy? Text us a picture and we'll help you decide!
Do clients ever bring wardrobe items that still have tags on them? Yes, all the time! Why cut the tag off if you're not sure you're going to use it? If we don't photograph you in it you can always return it.
We also have some wardrobe in the studio's Hello Gorgeous! closet that you're welcome to use in addition to what you bring. And speaking of bringing things along...don't forget your high heels (the higher the better!), and any jewelry and accessories that you might want included to round out your look. We've included our Tips, Ideas & Check-Lists document in your welcome email, so be sure to review that, there's lots of great do's/dont's and and wardrobe ideas included in it.
SO YOU'RE A LITTLE BIT NERVOUS...OR A LOTTA BIT NERVOUS?
Don't worry, that's absolutely normal! It's not ever day a stranger sticks a camera in your face and takes your picture for a couple hours! And since you're doing a boudoir session, add to it that you'll be in your lingerie - yikes! We pride ourselves on making you comfortable quickly! And we're experts at creating flattering posing for all different body shapes and with expression coaching, so your images are knock it outta the park amazing - that's a big reason why you hired US, right?
Plus, we've all been in front of the camera as well (yes, in our underwear), so we know exactly where you're coming from and how you're feeling! You'll be amazed at how fast we'll get you comfortable and have you feeling like a pro in front of the lens. And you're going to be amazed at how much FUN you're going to have!
SPEAKING OF BEING IN YOUR UNDERWEAR...ABOUT THAT ONE AREA I HAVE...
Okay, we're women and we're all beautiful no matter what our size and shape. That said, not one of us doesn't have that one spot on our_________ (fill in the blank) that we kinda don't like. Okay, maybe that we hate. No worries gorgeous, as we mentioned above we're experts at posing you to accentuate the parts you love while diminishing the parts you don't love so much.
Additionally, we do a full magazine quality retouch to all exposed skin areas during post-production, and we're always happy to nip and tuck any problem areas a bit if you request it during your image reveal session.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOUR SESSION?
After your session we'll book an Image Premier session just for you where you'll be able to view roughly 50 final, fully edited images and purchase any that you fall in love with. Images and product do not come with session Collections, however there is no minimum purchase and you are not obligated to buy if you're not absolutely in love. Fine-art Image Box Collections start at $850 (before studio credits), Fine-Art Album Collections start at $1200, and Digital Collections also start at $1200. You can find more details on what's included in our Collections in your booking agreement.
WHAT KIND OF PAYMENT OPTIONS ARE ACCEPTED FOR COLLECTION AND A LA CARTE PRODUCT PURCHASES?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, PayPal Credit, personal checks and cash for all product purchases. And since we believe that every woman deserves gorgeous images of herself to cherish we also offer 6-month no-interest payment plans on Collections over $1200 to qualified clients. Your session fee paid in full and a signed agreement are required to secure your date.
