Photography is an art of observation. It has little things to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them … Elliot Erwitt

As soon as your booking is confirmed, we will schedule an in-person consultation in our studio.

During the consultation, we will discuss details about your photo shoot, wardrobe, makeup, to your favourite nail polish colour.

On the day of your photo shoot, you will be introduced to your make artist.

We will discuss how you want your hair and makeup to be done to your needs.

This is the moment to sit back, relax, and be pampared.

After your hair/makeup is done, it will be time for your photo shoot.

During the photo shoot session, you will be guided by me on poses and connection.

We will help you to feel confident, relax and feel like a celebrity for the day.

There will be about 4 sets of wardrobe changes.

About 10 days after your photo shoot, you are invited back to the studio to see your images. This is the “Reveal & Order”  session.

During this session, you are welcome to buy any of our products/prints.

We are confident that you will walk away with beautiful images you can cherish for a long time.
