SESSION AVAILABILITY TIMES: All photography sessions are always photographed as close to sunset as possible for the best lighting. All availability is based on what time the photography session will actually start. Make sure you plan on being available at least 3-5 hours before your session time to allow for scheduling Hair, Makeup and Nails. All session fees are due at the time of booking to reserve your shoot date.
HAIR AND MAKEUP: We will schedule your hairstylist and makeup artist for you so the timing is perfect to have you freshly finished right before we start shooting. You should expect some additional emails informing you of your hair and makeup times. If you have extra thick extra long hair or require any kind of special styling, please make sure to let us know in advance so we can plan accordingly. Usually we plan our timing for loose curls on medium-long length hair.
NAILS: We have two options for your professional gel manicure. For your convenience, nails can be done at the studio before your hair and makeup begins so they are perfectly fresh, or alternatively you can schedule it yourself with our amazing nail artist the week leading up to your shoot at her salon. Either way we take care of the cost for you. (Acrylic full sets, fills, swarovski crystals and nail art can be done at an additional cost, please let us know in advance so we can schedule the time accordingly)
PRE-SHOOT CONSULTATIONS: You will also need to schedule a time to meet in studio for your pre-shoot consultation at least 2-3 days before your session in case you need time to go shopping for any additions to your wardrobe. If you don't have time to meet in person at the studio, we can email/text pictures back and forth leading up to your shoot or schedule facetime call to discuss options.
ARTWORK DESIGN AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT: Approximately 1-2 weeks after your session you will get to see all of your gorgeous images at an in person design consultation and ordering appointment. It is great if you can also schedule this in advance so you can make sure that you get to reserve a time that works best for you and your family. Make sure all family members are present that need to be a part of the decision making process. This is when your minimum order payment will be due.
