What is a beauty session?
The goal of a real beauty session is to give you the experience of feeling amazing, beautiful and confident. You’ll relax as an experienced hair and makeup stylist gets you camera ready. You’ll be photographed in 4 of your favorite outfits and will be guided through a series of flattering poses with different backdrops and beautiful lighting. You’ll most likely be nervous in front of the camera at first, but don’t worry, you’ll be relaxing and having fun in no time! Remember, it’s our job to pose and light you in a way that accentuates your best features and minimizes the ones you aren’t so crazy about. So let us worry about that and you just enjoy the attention. The resulting images will ‘wow’ you and may just change the way you feel about yourself!
How do I prepare for the shoot?
Once you’ve booked your session, you’ll receive a guide to help you plan for your session. Also, a week or two before the session we’ll have a phone consultation to discuss wardrobe choices and goals for the session.
When and how do I see the images from the shoot?
About 10 days after your session, you’ll return to the studio for your Session Premiere. You may wish to bring your significant other, a friend or family (make it a viewing party!), or you may decide to come alone. You’ll see your edited images in a gorgeous slideshow on the big screen, then we’ll sort through the images to determine your favorites. This is also your opportunity to place an order. Some products are available to take home that day. There is no obligation to purchase.
The session fee is $175, and includes the following:
-Pre-session phone (or in person) consultation to discuss goals and wardrobe
-Professional hair styling and makeup application for photography (approximately 1 hour)
-Custom photo shoot with posing tailored to your facial features and body type (approximately 2 hours)
-At least 30 retouched images to select from at your Session Premiere
-Session Premiere to view and order your images
The Session Fee is due at the time of booking. It does not include any prints, photographic products or digital images.
Print and Product Collections start at $300 and include a variety of prints, albums, and other products customized to suit your needs.
5.5% Maine State Sales tax will be collected on Session Fee and product purchases.
