OUR STUDIO'S BELIEFS
"Our beliefs are to support, encourage and unite all women through photography meant to showcase and empower you. We invite all women of all sizes, colors, gender, and any other preference to join us in accepting, and celebrating ourselves and each other. Together as women, we can support one another no matter our differences and together we can create a beautiful world for all. Acceptance of the world begins with acceptance of ourselves." -Roosh Benham, Photographer & Business Owner
Before & After's
Once you have secured your session date and time via the online payment system on the website I will send you the online contract form. Once both the payment and contract are completed your date and time will be held and secured for only you. At this time we will set a time to speak and do a pre-consult either on the phone, on FaceTime or in person. We will discuss the style of images you would like, outfit planning and much more to create your dream session. The day of the session we complete your hair, makeup and session. After the session, we offer our clients a same day viewing and ordering appointment. About 10-14 days later your professional products will arrive to the studio for you to pick up and enjoy in your home!
After our phone consult it is time for you to shop and get ready for you session! In the weeks prior you will gather your outfits. And guess what, I am here to help you as much as you need! I will help you select flattering pieces and styles for your body and the style of images you desire. No matter your session, I suggest bringing 3-5 different outfit options and I will help you select based on your style, personality and body type. No matter your body type, I always suggest a body suit--they are absolutely flattering for all body types. Client's e-mail me photos and I give you feedback so that you will look your best at your session or we will do it at your pre-consult!
DO'S & DONT'S
WAXING, TANNING, FACIALS, NAILS
Right before your session you will be doing all of the girly things you need to complete for the shoot. Finger and toe nails neat, tidy and manicured.
Waxing or shaving all essential areas. Due to the nature of the shoots I always recommend waxing all areas you don't want hair to show at least 48 hours prior to your session. Eyebrows, upper lip, underarms, legs, and Brazilian bikini areas. Trust me when I say, due to the nature of the shoot, a Brazilian style grooming is best especially if you want to get some sexy booty shots! If you prefer a more natural look, we support that too, but please be aware that body hair in certain places is not easily editable and removal is not part of the normal editing process.
Please do not tan or spray tan two weeks prior to your session. Your skin will be uneven colored and it will not optimal for your session and correction is not part of the normal editing process. We also suggest not making major changes to your hair style/color or a facial, or microderm at least two weeks prior.
THE NIGHT BEFORE
The night before be sure to get plenty of rest. Eat well, avoid caffeine, salt foods and foods that will make you bloated. We want you to feel your best and be ready for a day of fun. Please be sure to eat breakfast in the morning! You will need energy for this fun shoot!
ARRIVAL AT THE STUDIO
Arrival... Please arrive in loose fitting clothing without any undergarments. This is to prevent any clothing impressions on your skin as they often take hours to diminish and we certainly don't want them in your photos.
Hair... Please be sure your hair is dry and ready to be styled. If your hair is wet it will take longer and you will be charged extra for additional time to dry your hair. Please note: this will cut into your shoot time.
