What is a pre-shoot consultation?
You want your photo shoot to be as unique as you are. So before we schedule your session, I want to hear your thoughts on the kind of images you want. I'll suggest some ideas and, together, we'll plan a shoot that's unique and crafted especially for you.
Where do you shoot?
Studio sessions can be scheduled in Fort Collins or Longmont. Location shoots can be planned almost anywhere!
When do you shoot?
Sessions can be scheduled on any evening or weekend that's convenient for you. Outdoor location shoots are best scheduled for early morning or late afternoon when light is more portrait-friendly.
I'm a little self-conscious about my [insert part here]. Can you do anything about it?
One of my specialties! Between posing, lighting and Photoshop, you'd be amazed what I can do! Whether it’s blemishes, wrinkles, that bruise on your leg (you know there's one somewhere), more or less curvy than you'd like...just let me know. Chances are very good I can take care of it. I promise you'll be thrilled with the way you look!
There are glamour and art nude galleries on your website. What if I'm interested/not interested in that kind of shoot?
I show a variety of styles on my website to illustrate the options available. But this is your shoot! My job is to create images that you’ll love and make sure you enjoy every second of the process. As part of our pre-shoot consultation we will discuss the style of images you want and will plan the shoot accordingly. Keep in mind that it is usually possible in a portrait session - and always possible in an Extended Shoot - to create images in a variety of styles.
Do I need special hair and/or makeup?
That depends on the type of images you want and your own proficiency. It may make sense to bring in a professional makeup artist with experienced in makeup for photography. We'll discuss this in your pre-shoot consultation and, if desired, I can recommend several talented, affordable makeup artists.
Can I bring a friend/spouse to the shoot?
Absolutely! And a friend can often be helpful with makeup, hair and wardrobe (maybe even hold a reflector). If you plan to bring a boyfriend or spouse to a boudoir or art nude shoot, be sure you are both comfortable with what we'll be shooting (you really want to talk this through beforehand - trust me on this).
Can you give me a reference or two?
Of course, just ask!
