A Happy Session

Let the session inspire you

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions.

Ask The Expert

Avada’s resident health expert Joanna talks all things Home & Garden

When asked about my shooting style I generally use two words ” it’s simple!” And that’s really the best way to describe it –simple. Simplicity is important because you are the focus of the image not your clothing or the background. It’s true, those elements add interest to an image but your session is all about highlighting the best you! Style consultations are included with all Signature sessions before your session… feel free to text pictures of the outfits your are considering.

Safe Rule of Thumb – bring more clothing than you think you need, especially blouses that can be interchanged with basic pants or skirts. . For three looks I encourage you to bring at least 8-10 outfits. Why? Some things we wear from day to day do not translate well for timeless imagery. Also bring shoes and accessories for each outfit.   The goal is ‘the best you’!

Parking is easy, park anywhere you’d like.

When you arrive we will all relax while we complete administrative matters.  Relaxation is good, right!  After we complete the paperwork the fun begins, we decide which outfits we’ll photograph, the makeup looks to coordinate and the type of images .

A standard session is 3 looks and up to 3 hours. Yes, sometimes it’s a little wee bit longer but plan a minimum of 3 hours and 3 looks. The session time includes selecting the images for your collection.

Your image selection process happens immediately after the photo session, yes the same day–before you leave! Why? Because you’re busy and I value your time. Immediately after your session we sit down for a relaxed process of choosing your collection images and products. This enables us to begin preparing your images for delivery faster because you’ve already told us which images you prefer.

Hair and make-up are as essential to great imagery as a skilled photographer. Since each session is customized the details surrounding hair and makeup are individual and will be discussed prior to the session. NJ is a certified makeup artist and will provide a complimentary makeup consultation.

What kind of makeup is used? Glad you asked. I’m not loyal to any specific  brand. Products are chosen based on their wear-ability, durability for the session and how they translates in imagery not on the brand itself .  Through trail and error I have tested many products from different brands and have created a kit of products that I love and that works well for the session. Products range from MAC Cosmetics, Graftobian, Mehron,  Makeup Forever, Mary Kay, Loreal, Revlon and more.

I capture with your collection options in mind.  COLLECTION information is HERE . During our pre-consult we talk about how you’d  like to use the images from your session, I use professionals labs for your print orders and encourage those purchasing digital collections that also desire prints to get archival and professionally finished images.

Digital Collections are delivered via  download from your password protected gallery.
Prints are mailed to the address on your contract or available for pickup at our shooting space.
Canvases and other products can be picked up at our studio.
