Frequently Asked Questions

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

  • How do I book a session?
    • There are several ways to book a session! You can schedule your complimentary initial consultation here .
  • What should I expect after booking?
    • I will walk you through each stage to create your dream photo session! From the perfect outfit, the jewlery, to what photo products to order depending on what may fit your needs best. I typically start off the post-booking process with a few questions to gain an understanding of who you are as a person. I want to know about you and what energy you want to evoke through your photos. After the shoot, you will be able to see your unedited images. At this time, you will be able to select the images you'd like to purchase. During the post-reveal session I will update you on the progress of your photos being edited. One your images and products are ready we'll set up an appointment for you to have your images delivered to you!
  • 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 most important reasons clients love the styling consultation! We go over ways to make you look your absolute best while boosting your confidence with attire, or lack of clothing! Until then, you can check out a few of the items I have selected for clients here.
  • How should I prepare for the day of my photo session?
    • After you have booked a photo session, we will have a styling consultation to go over everything that you envision for your shoot. You will receieve a styling guide and assistance two (2) weeks before for the photo session. The day before your photo session, I will be in contact with you to ensure you arrive safely and that parking is a breeze. If you have any questions prior to your arrival you can call (513) 580 - 4142 with any questions and concerns.
  • Will I be able to bring someone to the shoot with me?
    • YES! There's nothing in the world like the support of a loved one or friend being present during a photo shoot. You can bring one (1) family member or friend during your session. I ask that they do not interefere with the session by trying to pose you or touch you up - I've got you covered.
  • Do you offer prints?
    • Of course! The best part of being photographed is for the art to decorate and light up your home. Toria Germain not only offers prints, but during your photo reveal you will be able to purchase photo products such as albums, mounted and frames prints, crystal USB, and more. For each image purchased, you will receive the matching digital file.
  • Typically, what does the average client spend?
    • The average client spends about $2200 after the $550 session fee, but there is no pressure. All clients are given an hour or more during their reveal and ordering session to select and purchase the images they love.
  • 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.
  • Do you photograph men?
    • Yes. I photograph men for branding sessions as well as couples and maternity sessions with their significant other. I do not specialize in "dudoir".
  • Do I have to pre-purchase my order?
    • No! You are able to purchase the items you desire during your reveal and ordering appointment, however, bonuses are only available with pre-payment plans. Opting out of a pre-payment means that full payment will be required at the time of your purchase, so be sure to bring payment with you to your session.
  • 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.
  • Can I just book a boudoir session for the experience and not purchase anything?
    • No. As amazing as the Ignite Boudoir session is on it's own, we do not offer this as an option.
  • 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 authoirze for use.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    • I accept card, cash, check, PayPal Credit, and money order. 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.
