DO I NEED AN IPHONE?
No, any mobile phone, including android, with a fairly decent camera will do. While the newer phones produce slightly better quality images, they can all be used in conjunction with the app for me to photograph you.
WHAT IF I HAVE BAD INTERNET?
Poor internet does not affect the quality of the photos, however it does affect the ability for me to see you. If you have data connection available or strong wifi in certain parts of your home, we can try to work around those areas - otherwise we can still make due with poor internet, just with a few likely interruptions.
MY HOUSE IS NOT THAT GREAT FOR PICTURES. I DONT HAVE A LOT OF LIGHT AND ITS SUPER MESSY.
Messy houses are my favorite, because it shows personality! Don't worry about tidying up - we'll do that if needed during the session, but I would like to see you in your natural state. As for lighting, we can get creative with small windows, curtains, desk or floor lamps, etc. Don't worry! The more restrictions, the more creative I get! I will take care of finding the spots!
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY TO PHOTOGRAPH?
In general, directional light (light coming in from the side, not from above) is the best for photographing, because it's the most interesting - so that generally means early morning or late afternoon/early evening. Harsh light is my favorite too, so if you get some nice rays coming in at a specific time of day, choose that time! But if we can't make it happen due to schedules or time differences, I can work with any type of light, so choose the time of day (or night) that works for you!
I AM SUPER AWKWARD WITH POSING, CAN YOU HELP?
Yes, this is my specialty, don't worry. Whether you're a professional model who's done this a dozen times before, or are a total newbie, I have a series of tricks up my sleeve that I use to get you loosened up and more comfortable with the camera.
I HATE HOW I LOOK IN PHOTOS, WILL YOU MAKE ME LOOK GOOD?
In my opinion, YES, I make all of my clients look good. But my ultimate goal is that you look at your pictures and are inspired by the moments in them. Accepting the way you look is hard sometimes (believe me, I KNOW this from experience) but I will show you the version of yourself that looks beautiful TO ME.
I DON'T HAVE FANCY PHOTO EQUIPMENT, CAN I STILL DO A SHOOT?
You don't actually NEED any fancy photo equipment. Camera : Phone . Tripod : A can, or a mug, or even a shoe will do. For height: Books or boxes. See what professionals we are??
WHAT WILL THE QUALITY OF THE PHOTOS BE? CAN I PRINT FROM THEM?
The answer is yes! You can! If you've ever printed from any of your phone images you'll know that with the quality of today's phones, you are able to print up to large canvases with them! Since I'll be using your phone and the original resolution of your phone's camera, the photos that you'll receive will all be in high resolution.
ARE THE PHOTOS EDITED?
Yes, I only release the edited versions (that's what you're paying me for!) so it'll take me a couple of weeks to return the final files to you.
HOW DO YOU GET THE PHOTOS FROM MY PHONE TO YOURS?
I will ask you to download an app to your phone (it's free, don't worry) that will give me access to your phone's camera and all of it's features. The photos will upload to a cloud where I'll access them (you won't be able to see them yet). After your photo shoot you'll have to leave your phone turned on and open to the app for a little while for the photos to finish uploading.
I WANT TO BOOK A SESSION BUT I NEED TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT... OR I'M NOT READY YET.
Easy - purchase a gift card for the future! This will give you a goal to work towards (gift cards are valid for 1 year, and also pricing might change in the future).... also, love yourself the way you are. Advice from a mom of 2, your body will never look the same, nurture it and celebrate it for all it's been through.
CAN I GET A GIFT CARD FOR SOMEONE ELSE?
Yep! Gift cards are great as gifts because they are easy to purchase and deliver any where in the world. The recipient will get to choose their session time on their own and it's a super fun and unique experience!
THIS IS YOUR FINAL CHANCE BEFORE YOU CLICK OFF!
