Q) What is a Glamour session?
A) It’s an intimate, flirty, sensual portrait session focused on the beauty of a woman. It is not a session focused on sex or the bedroom. We will develop a session plan during your consultation, but the goal of these sessions are to make you look and feel amazing, beautiful, sexy, and confident, not to feel objectified.
Glamour Photography is a GREAT gift to yourself. We get busy in our day to day lives and forget what it’s like sometimes to feel beautiful (read Shana’s ABOUT). A Glamour session pampers you and let’s you truly feel like the beautiful person you are. When is the last time you've done something for yourself? When’s the last time you've felt 100% happy with the way you look? Let’s get this party started and start building confidence one woman at a time!
Q) How do I contact you to book and schedule a session?
A) Click HERE for our contact page or email Shana: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll schedule an in person or Skype consultation where we’ll develop your
session plan, talk about your wardrobe and accessories, discuss your hair and makeup, and talk through your level of comfort.
Q) Do you include Hair and Makeup?
A) Yes! I work with two AMAZING hair and makeup artists, and all of our Glamour sessions include professional hair and makeup within the session fee. You do need to bring your own lashes for her to apply (if you want them), and we suggest that you bring your normal foundation to apply (just in case), but they do have a full professional makeup kit available. We’ll also talk about what you want for your hair and makeup at the consultation.
Q) Where will my session be done?
A) My glamour sessions are done at an undisclosed location, unless you want to rent a hotel room or do an outdoor session. This is something that we can definitely discuss at your consultation. Addresses and other information will be given at the time of booking.
Q) How much is it to book my slot for the marathon?
A) $180. A $80 deposit is due upon booking. You can pay the rest however you feel comfortable as long as it is paid in full on the day of your session. This covers your session with me, and your hair/makeup, and your album. You’ll choose your photos to place your order at your VIP Viewing Session.
Q) How should I arrive for my shoot? What all should I bring?
A) Once you book your time slot Shana will email you an info email full of tips on how to prep for your shoot, what to bring, and how to arrive. But since you’re already here reading this I’ll sum it up. Bring 1-3 outfits (although you will only have enough time for 1 or 2 of them), arrive with a clean face/hair washed and down, and get a good night's sleep!!! Drink lots of water leading up to the shoot (for more info email Shana to book your time slot – email@example.com)
Q) Can I bring a friend? Do you offer Glamour parties?
A) Um absolutely!!! But females only, please. And you’re more than welcome to schedule one of our glamour parties with your girlfriends. It’s the absolute BEST time – your friends, wine, snacks, and playing dress up. And we have special hostess bonuses! Just contact me for more details!
Q) What should I wear?
A) At our consultation, we’ll talk about pieces that will accentuate your most gorgeous features and hide anything that you’re uncomfortable with. But as a general guideline, I suggest bringing something that is more “Facebook” appropriate like a gorgeous dress, feminine tops/dresses, jackets, corsets, stockings/fishnets, skirts, tutus, sports jerseys + props, ties, boy shorts, heels, bracelets, rings, necklaces, head pieces, earrings, bridal accessories, etc. These things all look AMAZING on camera. OH! And definitely bring a robe or a wrap so that you are comfortable in between changes.
A) First of all, you ARE beautiful. And I will bring that out of you, and anything that you’re self conscious about, we will work together to pose/minimize it. I certainly don’t ask that you know how to model or know what poses look best for your body. That’s my job. And what she meant was that is "Beauty isn’t comfort." She was sore from having to hold the different poses she was in. Every little part of your body has a job during one of these sessions, and usually you aren’t standing/sitting/laying in a way that is comfortable or feels natural. I usually say, “if it feels good, you’re doing it wrong.” And just for the record, I’m posing you in those little micro movements to accentuate your best features, hide anything that you’re not comfortable with and slim you in camera. It’s not uncommon for me to show a client an image on the back of the camera and say, “That’s not me. Look how GREAT I look!” :)
Q) This all sounds great! So can you tell me about what I can expect from start to finish on the day of my session??
A) Of course I can! You’ll be welcomed by Shana + her team and given something to drink (you’ll tell us your favorite drink at your consult (wine/champagne/coffee/soda/etc), and we’ll take your before shot. Then you’ll sit down for hair and makeup. While you’re in hair and makeup, Shana will be setting up the shooting space, testing the light, readying camera settings, etc. Once you’re done with getting primped and pampered, we’ll look through all of the clothing options you brought, and we’ll revamp our session plan. Once you get your first outfit on, we’ll start the session and I’ll take over from there! We’ll shoot and change outfits until I feel like I have enough to give you a complete portfolio. Once the session is complete, you’ll get changed and pack up your stuff. You are more than welcome to take off your makeup if you’re doing the session as a surprise, but we suggest scheduling a night out since you’re already dolled up! Before you leave, you’ll schedule your VIP Viewing Session, and you’ll be on the way home feeling confident, beautiful, and sexy! It’s a SUPER fun day!!!
