Portraits/Headshots FAQs

 

What do you need to reserve my date?

A 50% initial payment and a signed contract. The initial payment is non-refundable, but will be credited towards your final balance.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, ACH payments,  personal checks, and credit cards.  The balance is due in one payment on the date of service.

Does your pricing include gratuity?  

No. We are sincerely thrilled when clients are happy with our work. Tips are an appreciated reflection of that, but are never added to pricing up front.

Do you charge a travel fee?

The first 30 miles (RT) and 2 hours of roundtrip travel are included. Beyond that, a travel fee of $100/hour and mileage fee of $1.00 per mile applies.  For locations more than  2 hours away (one way), overnight accommodations may be required

What kind of makeup do you use?

I use wide variety of products designed to be long-lasting, photo-ready, and waterproof.  I constantly update my kit with the latest products and best finds from professional beauty supply stores in L.A. and industry trade shows. Some favorite brands include LimeLight by Alcone, RCMA, Kryolan, Kett, Face Atelier, NARS, Laura Mercier, LORAC, Becca, Senna and Make Up For Ever.

Do you do airbrushing?

Yes! I work with each client to custom blend the perfect shade of foundation, and then apply by hand or airbrushing, based on her desired look. Soon, we’ll be adding body airbrushing services for clients wishing to cover chest or back blemishes, or tattoos.

What do you need me to provide?

Not a thing, unless there is a particular product or hair accessory you want to use.  My team and I arrive with complete hair and makeup kits, including lashes. We also travel with makeup chairs and specialty lighting to ensure professional application regardless of location.
