Frequently Asked Questions
YOUR TOP QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
Can you tell me the process start to finish?
Sure can! It's quite simple actually. We meet for coffee or connect on the phone so we can get to know each other and get cozy chatting about the details and answering your questions. Once you say YES! and the retainer fee is paid, we set your date and I will book my HMUA, Michelle. Your luxury session will start off with hair and makeup pampering, mimosas, coffee, (or whatever you like to drink!), snacks, chatting, and MUSIC. YAY! After you're fully dolled up and dressed (you bring the outfits we have decided look best), we start the 2 hour shoot. I guide you all the way. I will demonstrate posing and help you with arms and expressions. It is some work but will be a blast, I promise! After, we will set a date for your Private Reveal and Ordering appointment at my downtown office. This will typically be about a week after your session. At this appointment, you choose the photos you love! It WILL be tough, I warn you now! Most ladies decide on purchasing a "middle" Collection to avoid deleting any photos they love. This appointment can last one hour or three. It is customized to you and what YOU want!
Is it normal to be so nervous about booking?
Oh my gosh, YES! Listen, even I get nervous sometimes because I want everything to be just perfect for you! (We can be nervous together). You will soon learn that all the fear and anxiety leading up to the session disappears once you see there is nothing to be afraid of. I am a very chill person and so is my HMUA, Mish. Trust the process, love. You will love it.
I have no idea how to pose. Will you help?
YES! I am an expert Posing & Expression Coach so feel free to calm those nerves! I am trained for the everyday woman to feel comfortable in front of my camera. No experience necessary! All you do is relax and listen! The results will be anything from ordinary, I promise you that! From a subtle head tilt to that booty pop, it’s all there. Remember, this is my full-time job. I got you!
Can I do my own hair and makeup?
Ya know, if you wanna rock your own talents, do it! But, I work with amazing artists who would love to fuss over you for an hour. Plus, you CHOOSE YOUR LOOK well in advance so no surprises. Of course, it's still your choice. Glam is already included in your session fee so no extra cost to take advantage!
How much does it cost?
Your retainer fee is $349 and includes your hair and makeup pampering, a 2 hour studio session, and your private reveal and ordering appointment. You choose products like wall art, albums, and digitals at that time. At our initial consult, I go over the Investment Guide with you so my offerings and process are crystal clear. Please check out the Investment tab for more info including payment options!
Where is your studio?
I shoot at a spacious, natural light studio in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs. Easy on and off I-25.
