How does the best portrait experience work?


The Consultation

The best portrait experience starts with a complimentary consultation, where we will discuss how you want to be photographed and all the things you love. To ensure everything is designed according to your taste, personality, and desires, please, ask questions and share any concerns during this time.

The booking

Once you’re ready to book your luxurious photoshoot, you are required to pay the session fee of $1200 to secure your date and begin preparation.

The session fee includes your consultation, the design of your session, your photoshoot with fully guided poses, full access to the studio wardrobe, same-day image reveal immediately after your photoshoot and a complimentary $500 non-refundable voucher to be used towards your purchase of images and products*.

Option to hire a hair and makeup stylist of your choice, or choose one of my recommended stylists in the Hampton Roads area for your convenience. A helpful style guide will be shared with you as well.

*Images and products are not included in the session fee and are purchased separately.


The design

After your booking is confirmed, a private mood board will be created for us to start sharing ideas. This is a lot of fun and helps me visualize your style and personal taste. You can share anything you like from poses, outfits, colors, moods, etc.

The preparation

With a better idea of your session style. You can start shopping for accessories or clothes if you need to. Remember most things you may already have in your closet, but this is also a great excuse to buy that outfit you have had your eyes on!

The portrait experience

Finally, the most exciting day is here. Please make sure you rest the night before. Check the list I created for you so everything is checked off. You will be my celebrity for a day, and we will create magic together. It’s a fun day, so enjoy!

Right after your photoshoot, you get to see all the images and select your favorite photos or packages. You also get to choose the level of retouching on your photos. Please allow at least 1 hour to make your selections.


The pick up

In about 4 to 6 weeks after your photoshoot. Your images will be ready for collection. The digital copies will be emailed to you in advance once they are ready and fully paid. I will be in touch with you to schedule the best time for the pick up of your images.

*Because of the global pandemic, there may be slight delays.
