Frequently Asked Questions

Here you'll find questions that have been asked by many of our clients.

  • What should I wear?
    • There are so many bodies and so many different parts of our physical selves that we like to accentuate or mask, that it can only be answered case by case. This is one of the reasons clients love having Styling Assistance. We go over ways to make you look your absolute best while boosting your confidence with a selection of attire, or lack thereof! Until then, you can check out a few of the items I have selected for clients here. I do suggest bringing a nude or black thong to your session as well as a pair of black and nude heels!
  • I don't want anyone to see my photos. Is that okay?
    • Simply put, your photos are for you. I only showcase the images that clients allow me to and if you choose not to, that is absolutely fine. You can find out more about how we keep your images safe, and your identity private here.
  • What should I bring to the session?
    • Bring lingerie that you love, black or spunky colored heels to match, and black and skin-tone nude thongs, During your session, you will have access to my ever-growing client wardrobe which can be found here.
  • How far in advance should I book my photo session?
    • We are currently booking up to 2 months out.
  • Are pre-payment plans required?
    • Yes. To ensure that your session goes smoothly and you don't have to make any financial obligations on the day of your session. Many of our clients choose to book and pre-pay for one of our collections. For any upgrades you may decide to make at your reveal, the balance must be paid in full at that time. To ensure you get the images you loved, and didn't leave any behind, we keep all images on file for 24 hours.
  • Can I come back to purchase images after the reveal?
    • Yes! To ensure that you receive the images that you absolutely love, we keep your photos for 24 hours just in case you may have missed anything! After that, any images you did not choose will be deleted, so be sure to get them in that timeframe. This is one reason we offer payment plans, so you can get the photos that you absolutely love!
  • Can I get on a payment plan AFTER my session?
    • All purchases made during your reveal and ordering session are due in full at the time you place your order. Payment plans are not available during or after your session. Payment plans are available only before your session.
  • How do I set up a pre-payment plan?
    • I send out a brochure to your email where you are able to select the items you'd like to receive from your photo session. From there, I customize a pre-payment plan just for you with auto payments being made with the 2 credit/debit cards you authorize for use.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    • Card, cash, check, PayPal Credit, and money order are all forms of payment that are accepted. At the time your pre-payment plan is established, I do require 2 forms of credit/debit payment to ensure payments stay up to date.
  • When will you have "Mini Sessions" available?
    • Photography is an intimate artform that takes time. For me to take the best images of you and your family, we both need to warm up to each other. I want to know what makes you smile, your children laugh, and your grandparents glisten with joy. I want to get to know each of my clients on an intricate level to not only provide you with the best photographs, but an unforgettable experience. To provide you with the ultimate experience, I am no longer offering mini sessions to new clients.
