INDIVIDUAL LIFESTYLE SESSION - WHAT TO EXPECT 

 

These sessions are an opportunity to tell your story visually. They can take place at home, in your office, at a venue you present at, outdoors or in a studio. The images from this session will be used to present you visually so it's important to take some time and consider what you want to present to the world. Generally a shoot will last up to 2 hours. We plan 3 key looks and settings and work through that. You will receive a minimum of 50 images to use which you can select from an online gallery. 

 

PLANNING THE SHOOT

 

We will spend some time discussing what you want to achieve and what you will need to prepare. This can be done over the phone or in person - or sometimes it is done via email if it works best for you. 

 

HOW TO LOOK AMAZING

 

What you wear is important and I always suggest that you have a something that represents you authentically - something you would wear anyway. Clothes with movement and texture always photograph well. I suggest 3 outfit changes and looks so you can you have some variety throughout your shoot and give you options. We will discuss your wardrobe. If it's in-home it's perfect - we can go through your looks in person from your wardrobe on the day. 

 

HAIR AND MAKE UP 

 

Hair and makeup isn't always required. Particularly for people who don't want an overly polished or corporate brand look. My style is very natural and relaxed. I won't be giving a heavily photoshopped image back to you. I love real, I love natural and these will aim to be a true reflection of who you really are. That said if you wake up on the morning of the shoot with a pimple I will certainly brush that out for you. Some of us do love a little more of a polished look so I can help you get in touch with a hair and make up artist. This will be an additional cost and organised and managed by you direct with the make up artist. A guide price for hair and make up is starting from $200 - that is a mobile hair and make up to come to you. 

 

WHEN WILL THE PHOTOS BE READY?

 

Within 2 - 6 weeks of the session you will receive a link to an online gallery where you can view your photos. You will be able to share these with family and friends if you wish and also download them in low and high resolution files. I always share a few previews after the session  because who doesn't love a preview. 

CAN WE GET FRAMED PRODUCTS, PRINTS OR MARKETING MATERIALS?

 

Once you have viewed your online gallery of images you can place further orders for printed products with your selected images.  I offer large, framed prints, wall stories (a collection of various sized framed prints), custom designed boutique layflat albums, birth announcements, business cards and a range of other premium products depending on your individual needs.
