Frequently asked questions
What happens during our consultation appointment?
This is a getting to know you session that we will do in person, by phone or via Skype. We will talk about your wishes for your portrait. We'll discuss wardrobe, what to bring, what I may have in my closet and more. This appointment will happen after I receive your questionnaire or booking form.
How long does a full glamour / beauty session last at your studio?
Hair & MakeUp will be the first 45 minutes of your day. The photo shoot will last about two hours from start to finish. This will be longer if we do a fusion package outside as well.
Will you use my images on the website or social media?
We will discuss if you would like to be featured somewhere that Portrait of Beauty celebrates their clients. If you prefer not, they will be kept private, between me and you.
Do you offer retouching images for trouble spots?
Yes! Every image is looked at with TLC and responsible editing practice. I will bring the best of you forward.
How many looks (wardrobe) and how many images for my reveal session?
The in studio reveal for Beauty, Glam the Prom Dress, Fine Art Bridal will require a minimum of 3 wardrobe looks and from these you can expect 30, sometimes more images for choosing your final package.
Who will photograph me?
Your shoot will be photographed entirely by Lori Patrick and in some cases we film behind the scenes video for a special inclusion to our product line. Video by my assistant. We have a female staff.
I'm afraid of posing for you. Is this common?
The less posing you know the better for me. We will look at images of different looks while you are in hair & makeup and I am highly trained to guide you into the posing. I also will utilize techniques that I feel will look perfect for you. After a few frames, you will feel confident and will forget this fear completely. This will be an experience of a lifetime. I am here for you.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Absolutely! This is a gift that she will remember for the rest of her life. You can gift a session fee or a package. Ask me for more details on the contact page.
Is there a booking fee?
Yes, there is a non-refundable session fee that is good for one year in case you need to postpone for any reason. I have a signed agreement to reserve your photo shoot. Easy online booking is available right here. See the Book Now button or use the Contact page for specific requests.
I booked for a headshot. Is it possible to upgrade the session for personal branding and beauty / glamour fusion? I might want the whole experience.
I would love to upgrade your session. Just call or write in advance so I can make proper arrangements and time allowance. So fun!!!
