Life is a story and I truly believe- "Imagination takes you where your body cannot go." With that in mind, my goal is to tell your story in the best way I know how!
Booking: When you book an appointment with me we first discuss the type of images you want and the location or locations (depending on the package you select) that match the look you are going for.
_Outfits: We spend the first hour putting together an outfit to match your size, personality and the story you want to tell. I have a variety of outfits, costumes, accessories, jewelry and props to match a wide genre of styles. *Some outfits may be a little loose or tight but we can pin or adjust to fit you better. I can edit those adjustments in Photoshop.
Make-up & Styling: Once we have the outfit(s) put together we talk about the poses and "actions" to match the look. Make-up and hair styling is next. Make-up may be darker than you are used to and we may add false eyelashes, rhinestones, pearls, glitter and other items to your face depending on the look we are going for. I prefer a clean canvas to work with so only wear the facial foundation you normally use and do not wash your hair before you come. Hair styles better if you wash it the night before but not the day of.
Location(s): Depending on the outfit(s) you choose and the story you want to tell will determine where we go. If you want to travel beyond the 25 miles of Cloudcroft, New Mexico, I add $1.00 per mile to your photo shoot fee.
Payment: There are a number of accepted methods of payment for photo shoots. Unfortunately personal bank checks are no longer accepted. I will take a cashier's check from a bank or post office. I do have a paypal account for anything over $100.00. On packages under $100.00, cash is preferred.
Photo Packages: Not all packages have outfit, hair and make-up options. Family Photo packages require you to wear your own outfits but I offer accessories, hats and props. For those who want specialty or themed family shoots we can arrange some other items to include outfits and or costumes for the theme for an added price. You may also bring your own costumes, outfits, shoes and accessories to a shoot to mix and match with what I have in stock.
