YOUR SESSION

How to get the most out of your shoot

The sky is the limit as far as creativity goes! We encourage shoots outside of our studio in order to achieve a look more unique to you. [Travel charges do apply to locations more than 30 minutes from Fort St John] Our individual sessions last approximately 45-60 minutes in length. We shoot a range of looks through the session allowing you a variety of shots to choose from once the edits are complete.

Your completed photos will be made available to you via a private dropbox link that will be remain open for 3 months after the retouching is complete.  

CLOTHING

Two wardrobe options is what you get, with the exception of Corporate/Group Sessions (you only get one!). Feel free to bring a range of different options for clothing. Keep patterns to a minimum and choose solid colours as they simplify photos and allow the focus to be on your face. Avoid shirts with logos or branding (e.g. Harley Davidson) unless you are a proud supporter of said brand and their mission statement. We love textures, knits and various fabrics are our friends, just be careful not to over-do it. As well, simple jewellery is best as anything bulky or containing lots of stones will usually draw too much attention away from your wonderful face. Should you need a shirt made wrinkle free, stop in at Crooked Corner Clothing (9916 101 Ave Fort St John) before your shoot to have your shirts steamed free of charge.

HAIR/make up

We ask that you please come in with your hair and make up ready the way you would like to present yourself. (Mirrors will be available so you can adjust your look if needed)

RETOUCHING/editing

We choose a method of retouching to give you a naturalistic and flattering look that isn't overworked. If you have acne or damaged skin, we can smooth over those areas and remove any unsightly blemishes or make them less prominent. At the end of the day we want your photos to look like you. Should you wish for more extensive editing, please contact us to discuss prior to your shoot date.
