I don’t really like having my photograph taken? 

This is extremely common!  What we ask you to do is not to worry about feeling nervous, anxious or apprehensive about having your photograph taken.  These are feelings we come across time and time again with clients – you are not alone with these feelings!  However, once in the studio you will soon begin to relax. Our professional team know how to get the best out of you, the only thing we ask of you is to put your trust in our professionals.  Just relax and enjoy it and you will be delighted at the amazing results.

I'd love to have my pictures taken but feel “body” conscious. 

Again you are definitely not alone, so many people feel exactly the same. Our professional team know how to bring out a new found confidence helping, encouraging and enabling you to feel relaxed so you can enjoy the experience. 


How long will my photo session last? 

The length of your appointment very much depends on what your session will include.  Corporate portraits 45mins, family, kids lifestyle 1hr, mini glam star sessions will usually last around 1.5 hour.  Adult make-over and boudoir experiences 2–3 hours, promotional and model portfolio sessions longer and planned at the consultation.  During your consultation we will advise you on our recommended period of time to allow.  In most cases it will be less than we recommend to you however delays can occur. 

What clothing should I bring in with me?
Your photo shoot is individual to your style and tastes. Your session includes a variety of outfit changes, specific to your package.  Bring outfits, accessories and shoes - we can assist with your final decision once in the studio. Examples include: casual, evening, smart dress, sexy lingerie, swim wear etc. The more variety of outfits you bring, the more fun we have creating a variety of pictures for you to choose.   

You state hair styling in your experiences, does this mean you’ll be washing or cutting my hair? 

Absolutely not.  We do not wash, cut or colour hair.  Our professional hair stylists can create fantastic looks and styles with curling, straightening, dressing the hair, hair ups.

Can I wear Fake Tan prior to the photo shoot? 

Yes you can, but while some fake tans can look great we recommend against applying any specifically for your photo shoot.  Remember, we can retouch away any streaks or blotchy skin but it’s much easier to add a glow to even skin than it is to remove it. 



Can I bring my own ideas to the photo shoot? 

Yes of course you can.  A great idea is to email some inspiration styles that appeal to you.  We are happy to talk you through any ideas and styles you may be wishing to emulate. 

Can I bring someone with me to attend my shoot? 

Yes absolutely.  We are happy for you to come along to your session with someone whether it is a family member, friend, boyfriend or girlfriend.  The choice is yours if you would like to bring someone along with you as your guest they will be able to enjoy the experience with you.
