Step 1: Consultation

You Contact me. Via phone call or an email.

You can initially contact me by email or a phone call, but I would love to meet you in person to make sure everything is crystal clear to you, prior to the photo session. We can have a pleasant meeting and discuss what you are interested in receiving and review examples of the products I offer. Whether it’s a maternity session, any type of portrait photography, a wedding, or another event. Go over the outfits, pricing, and place of the shoot. We then set an appointment for the photo shoot session.


A deposit is required to secure your photo session slot. This deposit is non-refundable if you fail to show up for your session without providing at least 12 hours' notice. In the event of a no-show, both the makeup/hair stylist and photographer will retain the deposit. We understand that plans can change, so please don't hesitate to reach out via call, text, or email if you need to cancel your session. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


Your payment will be divided into three installments:

1. The first payment will serve as the Booking Deposit.

2. The second payment will be due after your session.

3. The final payment will be required when your digitals/products are available for delivery.

Step 2: The Session

Makeup. Hair. Session.

A day before I will contact you to confirm our appointment. Next day, we meet at the agreed place and the time. It takes about an hour for a professional makeup artist to do your hair and makeup, designed specifically for a photography portraiture, while I prepare the assigned space for the shoot. Camera, lighting, background (if any). etc. Expect the photo session to run for one hour or longer, depending on your session. We will create a few different looks: 2-3 outfits, multiple poses, and different backgrounds.

Step 3: The Reveal

My aim is to capture stunning portraits that highlight the best version of yourself. Your photos will be accessible online, and a link to your gallery will be emailed to you. There, you can choose your favorite photographs based on the size of your package.
