How It Works

Step One: Contact Us

Reach out! Let's chat about our options and get the ball rolling! This is the hardest step usually. But, once we start talking about everything you'll be just fine, promise! Take a deep breath and just hit SEND!

Step Two: Studio Tour & Consultation

Once you've scheduled your complimentary studio tour & consultation at our luxury studio (located in Pflugerville, just north of Austin, TX), Elizabeth will go over available session dates & how it all works. If you decide to book your session, you'll pay your session fee while there & Elizabeth will go over what you'll need to do to prepare. She will also get your sizes so she can pull from the Client Wardrobe Closet for you & answer any questions you might have. The studio tour & consultation usually takes about 30-45 minutes. For our clients that fly or drive in for their sessions, we offer video chats via Zoom.

Step Three: Custom Pinterest Mood Board

Once you are officlally booked in, Elizabeth will send over a survey all about you & your style. She will also create a custom Pinterest mood board to understand the exact look and feel you want for your session. We will refer to the pinned hair styles, make-up ideas and poses throughout your session. We've found that the more you pin to your board, the more you'll love your gallery. We want you to be as interactive as possible. It's a lot of fun!!

Step Four: Professional Makeover + Wardrobe Styling

Sit back and relax because you are in very capable hands. While our professional hair + make up artists transform you into a bombshell, Elizabeth pull and style your wardrobe looks from head to toe.

Step Five: Camera Time

Elizabeth will confidently and professionally give detailed posing instruction for approx.1.5 hours of camera time. She will direct and guide you from head to toe throughout the entire session. Elizabeth is incredible at making her clients feel at ease, comfortable and excited during their session!

Step Six: Private Gallery Reveal

You will meet with Elizabeth for your Gallery Reveal & Ordering appointment 2 weeks after your session date. This is when you will see your entire gallery (around 40-50 images), professionally retouched and ready to order. You will place your product order at this appointment. We accept cash, Paypal Credit and credit (Visa, Mastercard, American Express & Discover). We offer pre-session payment plans as well.

Can I bring a friend?

Unless your friend is also being shot (couples session), we ask that you please come alone.

Friends and/or partners are definitely welcome to your Gallery Reveal Appointment. That takes place 2 weeks after your session.

Our sessions last 3-4 hours total. We start with hair and makeup at 9am and typically wrap up by 12-noon.

Will my images be shown on your website or on social media?

Your images will never be posted online without your written permission and a signed Privacy Policy Statement.

During your Gallery Reveal Appointment we will go over which photos, if any, you’d like us to include in a blog about your session – if you want a blog to be written about you & your experience with us.  You may say yes or no.  We are totally happy either way!  There will not ever be any pressure at all to share your personal images anywhere.

Our goal is to provide you with beautiful photos of yourself, not to share them — it’s just icing on the cake if you do choose to let us share them.  Check out our Privacy Policy HERE.

If you are chosen for one of our “Model Call” programs, then YES, your photos will be used as we see fit for marketing – which could include, but is not limited to, our website, Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, sample products, etc…  When you agree to model for us, you are trading your time modeling for our time working and using the images of you for marketing purposes.

When will my photos be ready to view?

Your gallery will be complete and ready to view 2 weeks after your session date.  At that time we will meet again for your Gallery Reveal Appointment.

When will my products be ready to view?

It depends on which products you purchase. Digital Images are ready the day of your Gallery Reveal Appointment. Albums & Wall Art take longer. We estimate they take up to 4-6 weeks to come in, although typically less.

How much editing do you do?

My editing philosophy is that this is a fantasy shoot — not your every day, run of the mill, yearly family portrait.  I do my very best to get the image right “in camera” but will occasionally nip and tuck a little here and there.  I  heavily count on my professional posing to guarantee that you will look your best!  Our clients always look like themselves.  My editing style is very natural looking and real,but with a glamorous touch!

Every photo you are presented will be corrected for exposure, white balance, sharpness, brightness and contrast.  Your photographs will also be edited for skin smoothness, removing blemishes and other minor cosmetic changes.  I will deliver photos that are edited to the best of my ability.  Some types of retouching may incur an additional charge, including but not limited to:

  • Removal of tattoos
  • Fixing tan lines
  • Color-correcting fake tans

If you request additional retouching at your gallery reveal + ordering appointment, you may incur a charge of $25 per image, per round of edits, at my discretion.

We do not release unedited or RAW images.
