If this is a free session, why do I have to pay a retainer? I run a successful portrait studio and in order to ensure that my time is used efficiently, it's important that my clients arrive on their scheduled dates at their scheduled times. Your $100 retainer is used to secure your date, but is also a credit toward anything you purchase. If you do not show up on your scheduled date, your credit will be forfeited.
May I pay the retainer later? No. Sessions are not reserved until the retainer is paid. This secures your date and time.
Is the retainer refundable? No, retainers are non-refundable.
What are the accepted methods of payment? VISA, MasterCard, Email money transfer, cash & cheque.
What about the $100 collection credit? For those who fall completely in love with ALL their images, I will give you a $100 credit toward any Portrait Collection as a THANK YOU for modelling to make it more affordable to take them all home.
How do the collections work? Purchasing a collection means you're purchasing more than one thing, a collection of images. There are two steps, you purchase printed product, than digital product.
Where will the session take place? 140 Livingston Avenue, Grimsby, Ontario, L3M 4X1
Do I have to bring anything to the session with me? It is not necessary to bring anything to your session, but you're welcome to if you'd like. I have a wardrobe full of beautiful clothing and my stylist and I will help you look your best. If you choose to bring your own, I will incorporate clothing that is consistent with my light, airy, natural style.
What about my hair? Please come with your hair ready to be photographed. I tend to love hair down, smooth and natural. You're welcome to sweep it up at the end if you'd like.
Can I bring my children? No, this is a model call, so I'm looking for a specific type of image and that's why the session is complimentary. Please find child care for your children as you'll be here for just over 2 hours on the day of your session.
What do I get for modelling? One complimentary 30-60 minute photo shoot at Reflections of Life, professional make up & session styling, access to the studio wardrobe, one ordering appointment and the experience to be a model for the day.
Will I get to see the photos from my shoot? Yes! We’ll break after your shoot so you can just relax in the studio while I edit your photographs. Once they’re done (30 minutes or so later) I’ll show you all your gorgeous photos!! The only time to view/order will be 30 minutes after your shoot the same day. There will be no online gallery.
What if I want to purchase some of the photos? That is entirely up to you. You are NOT obligated to purchase any photos from your shoot. However, if you decide you’d like to purchase one, some, or all, you're welcome to. I offer monthly payment plans so you can obtain whichever items your heart is really set on.
