FAQ's about my photography sessions

How do I prepare my skin and hair?

The night before exfoliate your skin and follow with a hydrating moisturiser. In the morning follow your usual skin routine. Don't apply SPF cream. Hair should be clean and dry. Double shampoo your hair like your hairdersser, rinse well and condition mid length to ends. Do not wax closer that 4 days before as make up doesn't adhere to freshly waxed skin. If you like to look tanned get a spray tan 2 days prior to the  shoot.

I don't wear heavy make up, will I still look like me?

Yes , you can choose the style of professional makeup you would like for your shoot. You can start of fresh and natural and then take it through to glamorous.

I have never been photographed before, how will I know what to do?

It's not your job to know how to move in front of the camera. I will demonstrate and guide you through the most flattering poses for your body type. Your job it to relax and enjoy the photography and makeover experience.



What shall I bring to wear? Do you provide any outfits?

In your consultation and shoot design session we discuss  how you would like to be photographed and what outfits you need to bring. I do have a accessories, hats, corsets, and some vintage pieces in my studio for clients to wear.

When will I get to see my photos?

At the end of your professional photography session we schedule a viewing appointment for about a week later. The reveal session takes place back at my Leichhardt studio. This is where you get to choose and purchase your professional photographs.

Do you photoshop the images?

All my finished photographs are professionally retouched. 

How much does it cost? What should I expect to spend.

My portrait session fee is $195 and includes professional hair and make up. My prints start at $195. I take beautiful portraits and its up to you how many you buy. There is no hard sell. Most of my clients will spend between $1000 - $2000.

Do you sell the digital files?

With all the professional photographs you purchase, I give you a digital copy.
