In Your Skin
Step 1: Studio Tour & Consultation
I invite you to schedule a complimentary tour and consultation with me at my beautiful and private studio in Vallejo, CA. You are welcome to take a look around, browse through my studio wardrobe, see and touch the beautiful products available, discuss what packages are available, and chat about ideas for your own fabulous photo shoot. There is never any obligation to book a session with me, but if you feel confident that I’m the photographer for you, I’ll be happy to help you select a date for your big day!
Step 2: Scheduling Your Portrait Session
Lets discuss how you want to be photographed, what type of look you want to achieve and, of course...what you will wear. I want to get to know you, and make you comfortable while you are working to create beautiful and timeless portraits. Please plan for at least 4 hours with hair, makeup, wardrobe change, and actual photo shoot. We are currently taking appointments for Friday, Saturday, and some Sundays. Arrangements can also be made for evening shoots. A deposit of $50 is requited to secure a particular date and time. We want this to be a pampering session and that you leave feeling like a queen. In fact, you might just want to make sure you have a "date night" planned after the session as you are going to look fabulous!
Step 3: Scheduling Your Fitting Session
We will discuss your wardrobe at the consultation so you can plan your outfits ahead of time, but I encourage everyone to schedule their complimentary fitting session prior to their portrait session date. You are welcome to bring anything you wish to wear for your photo shoot and try on anything from my studio wardrobe. I will be available to help select the most flattering pieces and help accessorize the outfits that will help complete your style. I recommend scheduling your fitting session one to two weeks prior to your session date.
Step 4: Your Session Day!
You will receive a list of how to prepare and what to bring prior to your session date. I will also confirm your arrival time. Upon your arrival, you will be shown to your dressing area and offered a beverage. Once you are settled, we’ll begin with your hair and makeup. We’ll consult with you on how you wish to see your hair and makeup. Once you have approved your makeover, we will ease in to your photo shoot by helping make you comfortable in front of the camera. I will be directing you every step of the way. We’ll share a lot of laughs and you can soak up the experience while feeling like a celebrity!
Step 5: Day of Shoot - Reveal Session
If you have the time, I will only need about an hour to do a basic editing on the top images and you can run out and have a coffee while I get them done. When you return, you will be able to review and pick out your favorite images to include in the package or your choice. If you don't have time the day of the shoot, you can come back within 2-3 days to review the edited images from the shoot. You can order wall prints, canvas wraps, folio boxes with matted prints, or gift prints to share with family and friends.
