My creative process and whats happens at each stage....
CONNECT WITH ME TO MAKE A BOOKING
Please contact me via the contact form / direct email or by phone call to make your booking. We will be able to have a discussion about what you need and my current availability. Once we have decided on dates I will send you an invoice to secure your booking - for most of my photo-shoots I charge a session fee - which will secure your first x3 appointments with me up of your consult, your photo-shoot and your gallery reveal. Sessions fees are due with-in 24 hours to secure my time, talent and availability. A more specific breakdown of what your session fee includes and secures is listed below. My session fees are non-refundable - rescheduling is an option if something comes ups and you let me know with-in 72hrs. I don't chase up session fee payments - if you don't pay with-in the 24hrs your booking is not guaranteed.
I like to do these in-person where possible, I normally do these from my studio in Invercargill but if your local I'm also happy to meet you at your own home or at cafe or somewhere else where you feel safe and comfortable. Consults can take anything from 50mins - 2hrs depending on how much we need to talk. Anything you share with me is kept fully confidential, I really want to know who you are and what makes you tick and your background story if your comfortable to share it. Getting to know you first and creating a real connection with me will allow to give you the best portrait experience ever. I don't judge and I listen. I want you to feel seen, heard and understood.
Normally I do this as part of your initial consult, if you don't know what to wear or what to bring or what might suit you, goodnews you have your very own STYLIST me. I am great at knowing what colours suit you and what will highlight and show off the best parts of your bod!
You can bring your own clothes to your consult and we can go through them together or if your super clue-less I can come to you and help you go through your wardrobe or I can style you from my client photo-wardrobe I have an amazing collections of gowns, dresses that cater for all sizes and ages - little girls - tweens - teens and Women.
I have my sneaky ways of getting you to relax and loosen up, you don't need to have any experience in-front of the camera, let me guide you through your session. Ill continuously coach you and prompt you with my wonderful ways to have you feeling and looking your best. My studio sessions are generally 2hrs long and usually need the first 30 mins to get you in a good place mentally then the real fun begins! 2hr sounds like a long day but it goes really fast! My outdoor sessions are 1-1.5hrs and are usually planned around the golden hour or the sunset and twilight.
