5 Step easy process


The Consultation

  • A time is set up to meet to discuss what type of session you are wanting for your images. 
  • Overview of pricing and products for you to showcase your memories and to share with family and friends. Our clients invest from $1,000 to $10,000 in products.
  • Schedule your portrait session and pay session fee to book the session. Session fees are non-refundable, and MUST be paid to have the session on the calendar, or it’s not booked.

Prepare for your portrait session 

  • Have your nails either cleaned, filled and/or polished including toes
  • Make sure you have your hair trimmed a few weeks before, but no drastic changes in style just in case you don’t like it. You’ll express your dislike for your new style in the portraits.
  • A week before session go pamper yourself and get waxed so you are camera ready
  • Pack your wardrobe, accessories, shoes, props, anything you are wanting in your images.

 Portrait Session

  • Arrive on time so the professional make-up artist/ hair stylist can pamper you. 
  • While you are getting pampered, I will review your wardrobe to plan out the session to best complement the looks.
  • We will schedule the ordering appointment for a week to two weeks after the session.

 Ordering Appointment

  • At the ordering appointment, ALL decision makers must be present to make final decisions. Collection pricing is only available at the ordering appointment, afterwards only Ala carte pricing is available. 
  • Have a list of sizes and number of images of each you are wanting with you, so we don’t forget any that you are wanting.
  • We will review your images and pick your favorites.
  • 50% of order is required at ordering session and balance is due before order can be completed. 

 Delivery of portraits
