This is a fun day that's just for you. You are going to be pampered and will walk away feeling on top of the world. If you can, we encourage you to take the day off and really get to enjoy the process. Your photography experience begins with hair and makeup at our studio. Relax in a robe and slippers while sipping a glass of wine if you like. We then photograph you for about an hour and a half. Typically Joel and I both photograph; this gives you lots of variety, and our clients love having his unique perspective and impressive skill. Plus, he is so good at lightening the mood and helping our girls feel more relaxed. However, if you'd prefer to just be photographed by me we are happy to accommodate that.
We usually do 3-4 looks in a session. So have fun shopping or feel free to use our lingerie wardrobe! We have a guide that we'll send you once you book to help you know what to buy and where to shop. I have a degree in fashion design, and both Joel and I have lots of experience knowing what looks good on different body types, so I'm happy to help with wardrobe consultation if you like!
Maybe plan a date with the love of your life or your best friends for the night of your session, because you are going to look and feel amazing!
After we are done photographing you, take a few hours to yourself and grab a bite to eat. Then we typically have you back that same day to view your photographs and decide on your product. If this is a gift for the man in your life, we actually love to have him come with you to see your photographs with you! You are going to feel amazing, and having him with you to reaffirm that really seals the process.
Once you decide on what you like – most women get an album and perhaps some wall art – then we do the final edits on your photographs and design your products. If it is going to be a gift, we recommend you schedule your session six weeks prior to the date you need it by. We can work on shorter notice, but all products may not be available.
Our studio is located in a Victorian brick house in Collinsville, IL - just 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis. We are available for on-location and in-home sessions as well.
