Planning and Designing your session:

During your pre-session consultation you will have the opportunity to browse through many glamorous gowns and outfits from the studio wardrobe collection.  You will select your labourites and together, we will design 5 unique looks to give you a variety of styles during your photoshoot.

We will then look through a number of images to get a better understanding of what type of image resonates with you the most.  Maybe it's a Cover Girl look, or the classic Victorian portrait, or maybe even something sexy.

What's Next?

Getting ready and gathering the necessities.

After we have mapped initial ideas for your shoot and designed the character of your session, it is time to consider purchasing your own gown or selecting your favourite outfit to make your pohotographs extra special.  Or you may consider borrowing gowns from family and friends, shopping in vintage boutiques or using renttherunway.com to add a personalized touch to your portrait session.

What to Bring?

Styling Essentials:

- Nude strapless bra and matching nude thong (no show panties are preferred)

- Black strapless Bra and Matching Panty
