Q: Do I
need to bring my own outfits, or do you have
clothes in the studio?
A: While I do have many items in my pinup
& lingerie arsenal (mostly small/medium), I
encourage you to try and find your own items.
Check in the back of your closet and lingerie
drawer for things that make you feel sexy, cute,
fun, flirty, naughty… whatever. Bring as much
stuff as you want – the more, the better. If
you come up empty-handed, no worries - we’ll
hook you up. Just don’t forget the bling!
Q: How long
will the shoot take?
A: Makeup & hair service can take between
90 minutes to 2 ½ hours, depending on what style
you’re after and what type of hair you have.
Some shoots can last several hours, depending on
how much studio time you’ve paid for. If you
have booked a Pinup Party, expect to spend most
of the day with us. Feel free to bring
cocktails and snacks – this is a party, after
Q: Can I
bring an escort/friend?
A: No problem! We want you to be as
comfortable as possible. I only ask that they
are not disruptive. (Please do not bring small
children or animals unless we have a prior
Q: How will
I receive my photos?
A: You will receive an e-mail with a link to
your password-protected online proofing gallery.
Proofs are sized for web use (not for print);
feel free to download any/all of your proofs for
your own personal use (e-mail, Facebook, etc.).
After you have e-mailed me your retouch
selections (by image #), I will send your
high-resolution retouched images to you via
e-mail. (If you prefer, I can mail you a CD/DVD
of your retouched images for a $5 charge.)
Q: Will I
be able to get professional prints from my
A: Yes! A Print release form will be
sent along with your retouched images. If you
choose to use a photo lab, you should take this
form with you to prove you have the print rights
for the photos.
size are the retouched images?
A: Typically, retouched images are 300dpi
(high-resolution, print quality) and range from
8” x 10” to 8” x 12”. If you would like
different sizes for specific images, please be
sure to specify that when you send me your
retouch order. (Once I crop an image, I can’t
make them larger.)
Q: Do you
do TF* (model portfolio) shoots?
A: I am not currently booking TF* shoots,
but if/when I have a specific need, I will post
a casting call on Facebook and/or Model Mayhem.
So keep your eyes peeled.
- If you are having hair & makeup
service, please come with a clean face and 1-day
dirty hair (if possible). Feel free to bring
your own makeup.
- Let me know ahead of time what
style you want to shoot and what you expect
(pinup, boudoir, nudes, etc.). This way I can be
more prepared for you. If you have seen a pose
in a magazine or photo that you would like to
try, bring it with you or e-mail it to me prior
to your shoot.
- Practice your poses in the
mirror. Sounds silly, but it really does help.
- Clean & groom fingernails & toenails. Please either paint your
nails or don’t. Remove any chipped polish.
- Remove all facial, leg and
under arm hair 1 day prior to your shoot.
- Stay out of the sun and the
tanning salons, especially if you are doing a
- Get plenty of sleep the night
before. Refrain from alcohol and other
influential substances; it does show on your
face. Eat a good meal prior to your shoot, and
feel free to bring snacks.
