The consultation

 

During your pre-session we will go through how you envision yourself being photographed.  Digging deeper, we will discover what resonates with

you- bold and confident, soft and sophisticated, or perhaps something sexy!?  Pre-session consultations last about 1 hour, depending on how chatty we get!

What's next

 

Once we have gathered some good ideas for your shoot, it's now time to begin mapping and designing the perfect poses and character of your session.

You might want to consider to buy or borrow some gowns from your family and friends, shopping in vintage boutiques to add a personalised touch to your portrait session.

 

What to bring

 

- A pair of your favourite jeans, white/ black tank top/T-shirt, and any jackets/coats you love.

- Any gowns, dresses, lingerie or vintage items you may have to make your session unique. 

- Nude strapless bra plus matching nude panty. (no show panties are preferred)​.

-White bra + matching panty and/or Black  bra + matching panty  (if you would like to have a boudoir style portraits).

Hair

 

Please arrive with your hair clean and completely dry.  

Do not straighten your hair or put any product in your hair unless otherwise discussed during your consultation.

If you dye your hair, please make sure you have it refreshed a few days before the shoot.

Skin

 

Please come to the studio the morning of your session with your skin completely clean and free of all cosmetics & moisturizers .  ​ 

Consider to have your face exfoliated a day before your shoot.

Please make sure you have your eyebrows groomed and any facial hair removed a few days before your shoot.
