Client Experience: What is it like at a portrait session?


“Alisha, what should I wear?” The above line is my #1 most frequently asked question. It’s typically followed by a comment about how she has not been photographed in a long time and how she’s a bit nervous (and excited!) about the whole process.

If you relate to the above, please trust me when I say- you're not alone!

I know you have some trepidation about this experience, but I promise you that I’m here to make this the best photographic experience of your life!

Because I work with women like you every day, I know what you need from me to make this process a whole lot easier. I truly want to make sure you are 100% confident walking into your session! Here's what your photo session will entail:

  1. First, we’ll start with your consultation. This is where we will discuss your dream photo session, we’ll get to know each other a little bit better and I’ll be able to answer any of your immediate questions.

  2. Once you’ve booked your session, I have a snazzy wardrobe guide that I will send to you. The purpose of this guide is to help you select the best clothing options for YOU! After viewing the guide, if you still have concerns about your wardrobe, I’m always happy to help. You can send me photographs of your preferred outfits or we can have a Skype chat and discuss wardrobe options.


3. I’ll also send along some details about what you can expect from the makeover portion and my best tips to help you prepare your body, hands, hair, & skin for your specific type of portrait session. Boudoir shoots will require a little bit more prep than a business portrait session but no matter what type of shoot you’ve booked I’ll provide you with all my expert tips!

4. During your portrait session, I’ll be guiding you every step of the way! I don’t expect you to be a model (although you sure are going to look and feel like one during the shoot!). I’m going to guide you head to toe to make sure you look your absolute best!

Here’s a little peek into the behind the scenes of a portrait session.
