I am really nervous - is that normal?
Yes it is totally normal to feel anxious and excited all mixed together. You will soon find that you are being supported at every turn. We listen very carefully and we guide you every step of the way.
Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! We love capturing the bonds between people. It’s so important to celebrate your special relationships. Bring your best friend, your daughter, spouse, or your sister.
Will my images end up on the Internet?
The images that you see in my portfolio and the images on social media all have client consent. I got you.
Will you photoshop my images?
Yes. I do advanced gentle skin perfecting & slight contouring. If you look at my work, you will notice that everyone looks natural, well-rested, with a touch of glamour but never ‘fantastic plastic’. If there is something you are concerned about please talk to me at your Pre-Production Consult. So many imperfections can be corrected through proper lighting, posing, and technical photography skills. I will evoke your authenticity and capture the fabulous YOU.
What should I wear?
During your Pre-Production Consult, we sort you out. This is where we get clear on your theme, direction, and what garments to bring to your shoot day. We also have a selection of garments and elements in the studio.
I’m not comfortable with lingerie. Can I still do a sensual/sexy session?
Absolutely. We have many options to explore and plan in your Pre-Production Consult such as being wrapped in a white sheet in a mock bed, the classic men’s white shirt to being wrapped in soft tulle. We find what works for you.
Is Hair & Make-Up Included?
Yes! We offer hair styling and we use ‘green & clean’ toxic-free all Canadian made Pure Anada products for your skincare and make-up right here at the studio. It’s a therapeutic and relaxing experiential reconnection to your radiant, beautiful empowered self.
Do I have to suffer the 'hair and make-up' thing? It's not me. I prefer to be photographed in my natural state.
Bare or nearly bare is beautiful too! We’d love to do that natural yet ‘camera ready’ look. Just look at our portfolio! We would apply a natural base to even out your skin tones and make your skin look radiant, hydrated, and nourished. And, add a dash of mascara and blush to make your eyes and cheekbones pop! That’s it! Mostly bare, not all glammed up – but what we call ‘camera ready’.
I want to have beautiful portraits made at a location that is special to me. Will you travel?
Yes. Just give me an excuse… I am recently widowed and an empty nester so a new adventure is met with a tad bit of enthusiasm. Where shall we go? Your home? A Retreat? The woods? The Beach? Rome? Paris? New York?
Travel/accommodation expenses will be quoted when booking.
Do you provide digital files?
What about social media sharing files?
Absolutely with every photograph you purchase.
How much should I be thinking of spending?
We offer an all-inclusive experience that includes a print/digital collection. If you’d like to learn more and see if we are a good fit, just request a complimentary 30-minute Discovery Session.
I love your work. I want to do this. Do you offer Pre-Payment plans?
Yes and when you commit to a pre-payment plan, you get an extra perk! Let’s talk!
What is your turn-around time?
Typically, 1 week from the date of your portrait shoot I will do a social media, Sweet Peek!
Professional post-production of your collection is complete for you 3-4 weeks from the date of your shoot. I deal exclusively with two professional print labs (Toronto and Italy). This adds time to my turn-around but it is worth the wait!
