How to prepare: Depending on your session, you will be able to bring anywhere from one to three outfits. Make sure to check what is included with your session. We always suggest bringing more, rather than less. Our photographers are happy to help with any outfit decisions you are struggling to make.
What to wear for your photoshoot: Clothing that looks too similar in style or color will lack variety in your final gallery. We HIGHLY suggest bringing a casual everyday look, a nicer casual look and a more formal look. We advise against anything that is too loose, too tight or too revealing. Also, we suggest that you don't bring anything with distracting logos or patterns. If you are not sure, just bring it and we can discuss your options.
Booking a hair and makeup appointment: You have the option to add a hair and makeup appointment to either session for just $175. Our stylist will stay for the duration of the shoot and can adjust your hair and makeup to fit your outfit(s).
Included in your session fee: One digitally-retouched image. We will process payment at the time of booking.
Viewing your images: For those who are taking advantage of the A-Line sessions, you have the option to view your images online or during an in-person appointment at our studio. We will lend you our eye and our organizing software to help you select and customize your order. Those who opt for the High-Low session will view and select their NCL images online.
