Should I arrive 15 mins early like I do for the Doctor?? No, please don’t. I have established a routine of preparations when I prepare for a shoot day and arriving early will find me putting on some finishing touches on the studio. But, I promise to be ready for you promptly at your scheduled appointment time!
How should I prepare? My best advice to you, is to STRETCH, hydrate, and moisturize. Boudoir Sessions are equivalent to yoga class. The more bendy you are, the easier this will be. Drinking lots of water helps make you more flexible too, and it’s going to reduce bloating and clear up your skin.
Get a zit or a bruise? Don’t worry, that’s why I use my editing program! Moisturize your skin to keep it looking fresh and luminous.
NO SPRAY TANS OR TANNING BEDS. If you arrive with a spray tan your session is immediately CANCELLED with no refunds or reschedules. I do not mess around with this policy because even the best spray tans could stain my bed and furniture or client wardrobe, and they simply do not photograph well. I do not advocate for tanning beds because they cause redness and blotchiness of skin.
What about grooming? If you need to get your hair touched up, your nails done, or have any hair removal services done, make sure you do it a few days prior to your session so everything has time to “settle” and you have a little wiggle room should things need to be fixed. I don’t recommend trying new hairstyles or colors, getting new piercings or tattoos immediately before your session.
How should I dress the morning of? Please arrive in loose fitting clothing that will not leave impressions on your skin. Avoid jeans, socks, underwire bras. Feel free to wear Pj’s, sweats, yoga pants, or leggings. Don’t feel like you need to dress up for us! Most likely everyone here will be in leggings too
My Studio Address:
My studio is located at 267 N 2nd Ave in Stayton, OR . You can park right alongside 2nd Ave, and there is also free public parking across the street, in the courthouse parking lot.
Parking: Lots of time you will find parking literally right in front of the studio. You can park anywhere on 2nd Ave.
When will I see my pictures? The same day as your Session – right after you went out to grab some lunch/break and when you return around 3:30 pm.
How does the Ordering Appointment work? Your Ordering Appointment is your time to view all of your gorgeousness and decide which images you will include in your album or folio box!
I pull all of your images up on the Screen and go through them one at a time. All of the professional retouching is done while you are on your lunch and I edit. There are a variety of different print and digital options, and with your payment in full you will receive the prints and products in 4-6 weeks., Products will be shipped to you, directly from the lab.
There is no option to have an online gallery or a second Ordering Appointment.
All sales are final. Once the Ordering Appointment is completed, no further changes can be made to your order. This is studio policy for all clients and no exceptions will be made. You may not change, alter, add, reduce, or request any other types of changes after the Ordering Appointment.
I am so excited to see you and give you this amazing experience.
