Frequently Asked Questions
Will my photos end up on your website or social media pages?
No! Absolutely not. Your privacy is absolutely paramount to me. Everyone that appears on my website and social pages has agreed for those photos to be shown publicly.
How much is a photo shoot?
I can't see any prices for a boudoir shoot. How much is that?
Basically its the same as a portrait shoot. But feel free to contact me to discuss your exact needs.
Do I have to be over 18?
I very rarely work with people that are under 18 years of age. But to be clear, for a boudoir style portrait shoot YES you need to be over 18 before I will even discuss it with you.
If you are under 18 and want to get some portraits done, so long as one of your parents accompanies you to the shoot that's fine, but we will only do age appropriate shots for you.
I live in xxxxxx will you come to me for a shoot?
Yes. However travel expenses are added to the cost of the shoot, please send me a message and I will be able to give you an accurate quote.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes. Feel free to have a trusted friend present. But please note for the integrity of the shoot, they need to avoid having their phone out.
What do I need to do to prepare for the shoot?
I’ll go into more detail with you, when consulting about your specific shoot, but in general terms, you need to be well rested and definitely not hung over. Avoid drinking too much alcohol prior to shooting and if you are going to have any tanning done make sure it is done a few days before your shoot.
What should I wear?
Again I will go into more detail when consulting with you, and it differs for every shoot, but for a portrait shoot try to avoid detailed patterns, tops with logos and stick with plain colours and fashionable styles.
Don’t forget to match you outfit completely, right down to the shoes and jewellery you wear.
Do you offer hair and makeup styling?
I can arrange for an experienced hair and make up artist to visit you immediately before the shoot, however this will incur an additional charge.
Do you Photoshop my images?
All images are retouched to some extent, but only ever to enhance your natural look.
How do I receive my images?
I try to keep my printing minimised, so all images are supplied on a USB. If you want prints though, I can arrange that for an additional charge.
Do you offer payment plans?
Other photographers charge way more than you, can I expect the same quality?
I'm the first to admit that there are other photographers that are better than me, however that doesn't mean I am not going to supply the very best image I can. Because I don't have the overhead of studio rental and other associated costs, and I don't rely on this business to provide my main source of income, thus I can keep my prices to a minimum.
If you don't have a studio, how can you shoot studio images?
My studio set up is completely mobile. I can set up in my living room, or under your pergola, or in fact, just about anywhere to shoot "studio style." No-one will ever know the difference.
