Booking Terms and Policy
Whether you book a local session in Tucson, AZ or book with me while I am traveling, this is what you can expect!
Before booking, PLEASE READ THIS!
Booking A Session = Signed Contract
First things first, before you book your shoot make sure you have some sort of idea of what you would like to pursue as far as theme. Since my transition from No Regrets Photography in 2020, I no longer shoot boudoir, pin-up, or gore. So please be advised, I will not shoot these themes unless agreed upon prior.
Concepts I am now offering are Fantasy, Futuristic, Cosplay, and Space themes. I have the right to refuse any concept that is too far out of alignment with me or my brand. I trust that before you book you know this and respect and trust my creative expression.
Before Your Session
Once you have booked a date and paid deposit (BOOK HERE), I will reach out to discuss and plan theme and styling.
For a list of themes and mood boards to give you some ideas, click here.
Sending me references and ideas for styling ahead of time is important so me and my team can be prepared to give you the look you want.
Hair and makeup is done as per client/artist collaboration, which is why I want to know your ideas as well! If for any reason client is unhappy with hair and makeup they must express this prior to being photographed so that the makeup artist or hair stylist can perform corrections.
Please let me know ahead of time if you will be accompanied by a chaperone. Due to space limitations, only ONE chaperone may stay during makeup and styling, but may be asked to leave during your actual session. For some events, your chaperone of the opposite sex may not be able to stay for the sake of privacy of our other clients.
You will get a email reminder for the final payment of your package, please pay this prior to arriving to your session.
*excluding those with a payment plan agreed upon ahead of time. Please contact me for more info on a payment plan before booking.
Day Of Your Session
When getting ready to arrive to your session please make sure of the following:
-Make sure finger and toe nails are painted and clean.
-Make sure face is clean without any product
-If you have any allergies or sensitivity to makeup or product, we urge you to bring your own products for the makeup artist to use.
-75% of sessions we will be using wigs, however please come with semi clean and DRY hair to make easy for styling if we decide to use natural hair.
-If you have wigs or extensions, please bring them!
-PLEASE bring a variety of solid color undergarments to wear under wardrobe provided. Exp., nude/black underwear, strap/strapless bras, etc.
-Bring at least one pair of shoes, preferably heels or boots in a neutral color or various colors for options to match theme. I will only have limited options for those sizes 6-8
-Wardrobe will be provided, however we can never have too many options, Bring whatever wardrobe and accessories you have that would follow the theme!
If you booked a local session, we will meet at my home studio where we will start styling.
If you book a session while I am traveling we will most likely meet at my hotel or studio for styling. Styling will take about 1 hour depending on how elaborate our look is. Then we will either shoot in studio or on location, set/location will be determined ahead of time to allow for planning. We will shoot for about an 1 hour per look. If you are doing 2 looks, makeup and location/set will stay the same to save on time, which is why both looks must be cohesive.
After Session- Receiving Images
After your session, about 2-3 days after, you will receive a pdf proof sheet with all your BEST shots from your session. These will be *UNEDITED RAW* photos from your session to pick your favorites from.
*You will have the option to buy extras at any time for $20 each.
The sooner the selections are sent back to me the sooner I can begin the retouching process.
Final products can be expected no later than 2-3 weeks after you have selected purchased images from proof sheet.

I will try to communicate as much as possible on when to expect final product. Please be clear and communicate if you need final images by a specific date AHEAD OF TIME. Due to...LIFE...I can not promise a turnaround date unless agreed upon before booking!
