How far out in advance should I book?
I want to book...now what?
After filling out the contact form, we will have a consultation to coordinate outfits and share inspiration! Then the contract is signed and deposit is collected. For more information on the experience, click on the "The Experience" tab!
Try to book 2 to 3 months in advance for the dates you prefer. For prints and products, allow an additional 6 weeks for delivery! Don’t hesitate to contact to me to discuss availability and timelines! The goal is for your experience to be completely stress free and not rushed - but I can place a rush on the items for a fee!
How many images are edited?
How long until we receive our images?
You can expect around 60 to 70 professionally edited images at your reveal session.
You will see your images the same day as your shoot! After your session, go grab a bite to eat (on me!). When you return about an hour or so later, we will sit down for your Image Reveal and Ordering Appointment. Your images will be revealed on the big screen to showcase the star that you are! We will go through and choose favorites and place your product order together. Turn around for product/print orders are 4-6 weeks. Any images not purchased after 7 days of the shoot will be deleted.
*For “Influencer Branding” packages, you will receive your images in 48 hours. Weddings and Elopements, you can expect your images within 8 weeks.
Does the session fee go towards my purchases?
Your session fee is a non-refundable retainer to secure your private session in the studio. It also includes the phone consultation prior to your session, professional hair and makeup application the day of the shoot, access to client wardrobe, 90 minute photoshoot, posing and facial expression coaching, and the Image Reveal & Ordering Appointment.
Do I get the print release to my images?
Print release is not included in session amount, but can be purchased for additional fee.
If you would just like the digitals, that’s no problem! However, I deeply recommend purchasing prints for keepsakes. I have heard too many stories of people storing their images via Cloud, USB, CD or whatever digital technology available for YEARS, only to have the files corrupt when they are ready to print them down the road. All that time, effort and money spent on photos are just gone.
Still just want the digitals? No worries! Digital images and print release can be purchased individually for $99 or for your entire Digital Collection for $1200. Digital Collections are complimentary with a $1500 print purchase.
**For weddings and elopements, digital images are included in my bridal packages.
What if I just want the digitals? I don't usually print my images.
Yes! This shoot is an investment in yourself. These will be images you will cherish for the rest of your life. So many material things have an expiration date - the new TV will only last a couple of years, the iPhone won’t work after the next model comes out, and the expensive new shoes will wear out eventually…. however, all of these are big purchases that you break into payments. You can do the same with your session. Choose The Experience over things.
**Images and products will be delivered upon the final payment of the plan.
Do you offer payment plans?
The Image Reveal..am I pressured to buy?
Of course not! I shy away from pushy-pushy sales types, so I would never want that experience for my clients. This is about honoring YOU! Buy what you love. Forget the rest.
Hair and makeup comes complimentary with the session and I have specialized artists on staff for all of my studio shoots. Why pass up an opportunity to get pampered for the day? I trust only the best professional hair and makeup artists and believe me, you will NOT want to miss out on their magic! They will have you looking and feeling your best for your photoshoot. It’s all part of The Experience! Choosing to pass up this professional service is your choice, but no discount will be offered if you don’t use it.
If I do my own hair & makeup, do I get a discount?
We live quite a ways from you? Do you travel?
I have some ideas for the shoot.. can we do this?
DO I TRAVEL? ha, YES! Travel fees depend on the distance and time spent. Live in the Midwest but want to get married in the mountains? I'M SO IN. Live a couple hours away from Joplin but reallllly want to do your engagements photos with me? NO BIG THANG! Inquire for a quote!
Bring me all the ideas!! I am always up for new things! Think your idea is kind of weird, tho? EVEN BETTER! Share you Pinterest boards with me. Send me links. Screenshot your inspiration. Let's collaborate and create some kickass art!
Can I bring a friend?
What should I wear?
Of course! But keep in mind that sometimes having an audience can make clients feel uncomfortable or like they are holding you back. I am your biggest hype girl and our team will make you feel completely at ease in our studio!
I always recommend wearing something you feel sexy and confident in! Classic, edgy or hardly anything at all… it’s all about what makes YOU feel sexiest. I also have “Just The Sheet” that clients can end their session in. If you still aren’t sure, every client has access to the in-studio client wardrobe. We can arrange for you to come view the pieces prior to your appointment if you would like!
I’m nervous and not comfortable with my body.. should I wait until I hit my new body goal weight?
I believe every single woman is beautiful. My job is to be a mirror to show you what I see in you. Vulnerability is strength. When we sit down at the Image Reveal and Ordering Appointment, my goal is to see a look of adoration on your face for YOURSELF. I want you to SEE how gorgeous you are!! You will leave empowered. Feeling confident. Feeling sexy!! I give expert coaching and posing tips to accentuate your features that you love most! Let’s celebrate you Don’t wait your life away for the perfect goal weight, perfect body, or perfect age.
