What is a "look"?
A 'look' refers to an outfit change or major hair/makeup change. It's best to think of each "look" as a way to showcase a different side of you, or a different type that you can play.
What are 'Branding' images?
Branding images help the industry see and learn a little more about you that your headshots cannot capture alone. They are a way of capturing what your unique essence and brand as a human is. They can be anything from portraits, to full body. I typically work with locations around my studio. You are welcome to bring your own props and ideas. Whether you're an actor, singer, writer, blogger... branding shoots are designed to be fun, exploratory, and creative!
I think I might want to have more 'looks' than what is offered in my package choice, can this be done?
This can absolutely be done! Additional looks are offered on certain packages. Additional looks can be added for $75/per look, please let us know as soon you decide whether or not you'd like to add a look, as this will determine your session start time.
Do I need to have my make up professionally done?
Hiring a professional makeup artist is not required, but HIGHLY recommended. Our team of artists are familiar with our lighting and style of working. Hiring a professional MUA can drastically cut back on retouching wait times.
How much does hiring a makeup artist cost?
Artists are $200 for makeup only, $250 for hair and makeup, for a three hour session depending on the artist and what is booked, and +$50 for each additional hour.
Can I hire an outside stylist?
After countless less-than-great experiences, using makeup artists outside of our recommended artists is prohibited. However, you may use an outside hair stylist if you desire one. We audit our artists carefully, and are more than happy to work one on one with you to help you find which artist would suit your needs best! If you'd like to read testimonials on our artists and our working relationships together, please check out the About Emily page!
What do I need to bring with me/wear to my session?
Once you have made your appointment, I'll send you a detailed confirmation email that will contain all the information you will need to prepare for your session. This will include, suggestions to wear, what to bring, where and what time to meet and more. If you have any questions after receiving this email, please feel free to get in touch and let me know! I'll be happy to answer them! If this is your first time to have your photos professionally done, please indicate that in your booking email and I will send you additional detailed information for your session so you feel confident and comfortable before your shoot begins!
