MUA

I regularly work with an incredible local makeup artist called MsMoo Makeup, if you would like to hire her for your photoshoot, please let me know as soon as you can so I can contact her about possible dates for your shoot. 

CHAPERONES

Chaperones are welcome on my shoots. Please bare in mind that we will be working on location, they’re welcome to either wait in their car, or walk around our location with us. I only ask that they don’t cause any distraction while we’re working. If you are booking a studio shoot, please bare in mind these take place in my home, chaperones are still welcome but I work in a small space and I ask that anyone chaperoning you does not disturb us while shooting. 

Chaperones for models under 18 are mandatory, please bring someone 18+ with you (most bring their Mommas!)

WHERE TO GO.

Driving: I work from a home studio in Chilwell, Nottingham. The full address will be provided on your invoice. If you have chosen a location for your shoot, we will meet you there. 

Train: Beeston train station is the closest station to us, its one stop before/after Nottingham, depending on where youre travelling from. If this is your mode of transport, then we will always offer to pick you up from the station. If you'd prefer to make your own way, we're a 5-10 minute taxi journey away from the station, or you can walk into beeston centre and jump on a bus or tram to get to us. Please make sure you let us know exactly when you arrive. If you’re struggling to find the correct station, please contact me. 

WHAT TO BRING

A 1 hour studio booking will allow for 1-2 looks, and a 2 hour booking for 2-4 looks. I recommend bringing a selection of outfits for your shoot to make the most of our allotted time. Once a deposit has been paid, you can contact me via Instagram to discuss your idea or concept. If you do not have one, we can come up with something together. Please make sure to let me know what style of clothing you plan to bring so I can choose a fitting backdrop colour to start with. 

Location shoots: Please bring comfortable shoes for walking around the location, as well as an umbrella, and a coat\hoodie just in case, we can’t control the weather but we can prepare for it.  You can see examples of my location work here for inspiration on outfits and accessories to bring. I cannot supply any corsets or other handmade items. 

CANCELLATIONS

All deposits displayed are non-refundable in the event of cancellation on your behalf.

SHOOT PREP

Before your shoot, I recommend washing and styling your hair, as well as applying your own makeup before arriving, if you havent booked MsMoo. please apply any fake tan 2-3 days before your shoot. I work with coconut oil and this can make fake tan run.

I will contact you within 3 working days with a selection of contact sheets of all viable images from our shoot. Each package comes with a standard amount of edits included, if you decide to go with more, each additional edit is £25, with discounts for 10 or more. 
Depending on how many images you’ve chosen expect your images to be done one by one within roughly 4 weeks from the date that you selected your chosen images. I use dropbox to share my files, so be sure to let me know your current email address, you will get an email whenever a new image has been added to the box.
