Just the FAQs, Ma’am…
Q: I love pinup, but I’m not a model and have never done a shoot like this before. I’m not sure I will know what to do.
A: No worries! I’m here to help you find a style YOU like and are comfortable with, and I am very experienced at coaching ladies of all sizes and shapes into flattering poses. I firmly believe the key to a good photo session is to put you at ease and to have FUN, and I encourage you to bring a friend or your iPod…whatever will help you make this a fun experience.
Q: How old do I have to be to book a session?
A: You must be at least 18 with proper id presented at the shoot for these sessions.
Q: If I shoot with you, do I have to put my photos on the website?
A: Absolutely not! I only use models and clients on the site who have given permission to display the photos. Your proof galleries will be password protected so only you and those you choose can access them. Your privacy will always be respected and honored.
Q: How long does it take to see my proofs? And to get my finished images?
A: Proofs will be online within one week. Once you make your selections, the retouched images will be delivered within one week, as well. Print orders usually arrive in 3-5 business days.
Q: What if I want prints only instead of digital files?
A: If you choose to purchase prints without digital files delivered, $50 of your sitting fee will go to prints purchase credit. You may also purchase prints and specialty items such as books and albums in addition to digital images.
Q: Do you provide wardrobe?
A: I have a large selection of vintage wardrobe and accessories available in sizes 2-22, but I recommend bringing your own clothing as well, to ensure we have some options to work with. I also have added several clothing lines to my online store, and all these items are available for purchase on site. If you see something in the online store you want to shoot in, please allow at least 3 weeks to special order before the day of your appointment.
Q: What should I bring to the shoot?
A: I would suggest makeup, hair accessories and styling tools, at least 1 full outfit per planned look, stockings, false eyelashes, nude colored underwear, and your favorite music.
Q: Do I need to do any special preparation?
A: Make sure your eyebrows are plucked, you’re freshly shaved or waxed and your fingernails are neat and trimmed, with a simple color manicure. If you have hired a hairstylist or makeup artist, their special instructions will be emailed to you in advance. And make sure you know how to get to the studio and allow for traffic. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR ARE ON TIME – if you are more than 15 minutes late, I may have to ask you to reschedule depending on my bookings for that day. And who wants to feel rushed – this should be a day of glamour and pampering!
