Who is the Luminary Portrait session for?
This portrait session is for you if you want to embrace who you are NOW and anchor this moment in a memory with gorgeous images you can return to whenever you need a reminder of the luminous jewel that is you.
What if I usually don't like photos of myself?
I want you to love your photos and I will take time to listen to how you want to be photographed. Once I know what lights you up inside and what will make you shine, I will set to designing the visual equivalent of your happy place with the perfect backdrop, lighting and props to bring it to life. Confidence is the key to gorgeous photos and it's my job to be aware of any areas of insecurity and guide you through posing so you feel comfortable and at ease.
How do I book my Luminary Portrait session?
Just click on the Let's Chat button and let me know what type of session you're interested in. I'd love to set up a phone or video chat or even meet in person whenever possible and go over ideas and times. To book your session a non-refundable $200 retainer will reserve your date.
What is included in my Luminary Portrait session?
Your Luminary Portrait session includes:
A pre-consultation meeting to get to know you better and prepare you for your photo shoot.
A custom portrait session at the location of your choice (travel fees may apply).
An exciting unveiling session where you will see a curated selection of the fully retouched images from your photo session for the first time.
What should I wear?
You can be as casual or as glam as you want to be! It's all about what makes you feel amazing in your body and not hiding behind your clothes. Don't worry if you're unsure, every session includes a style consultation where I help you choose a wardrobe so you'll look incredible and feel ready to express the best version of you.
What about hair and makeup?
Along with wardrobe, attention to hair and makeup can have a big impact on how you feel during the photo shoot. When you feel great you look even better. Beautifully styled hair is especially important because it is difficult to change in editing. Please inquire if you would like to add hair and makeup service to your session.
Where will my photo shoot be? Can we go to multiple locations?
I have a mobile studio with a selection of hand painted backdrops that I can set up in your home or wherever you want to be photographed. If you prefer an outdoor location, let me know if you have a place in mind or I can offer a number of suggestions. One beautiful spot is usually plenty to get a variety of unique images but I'm happy to discuss adding locations to best bring out your inner luminary.
