SCHEDULING A SESSION
We schedule our sessions Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. No weekends and No Thursdays.
We take our session between 9am -3pm.
We start hair and makeup no earlier than 9am to be ready for open at 10am and no later than 2pm to finish by our close time of 5pm with everything.
You can now schedule online here:https://go.booker.com/location/TheStudiobooking
Minimum Order: We have a $250 minimum order for all of our photography sessions.
CANCELLATION: Session deposits or payments, required at the time of booking, are not refundable when appointment is canceled 24 hours prior
The reason is that when you book, we hold a spot, book a team of people to help with your session, and pass on other client bookings for that time spot.
If you need to reschedule, you must do so at least 24 hours before your scheduled session start time or you will forfeit your session payment or deposit. Again, our team has been confirmed and missed out on other clients and jobs to work your session and we have declined other clients for this time spot.
If less than 24 hours notice is given, you will forfeit your session payment
WARDROBE AND STYLING: The client is responsible for choices in wardrobe, and to arrive with wardrobe. We do not provide any wardrobe or props.
In this BOUDOIR session - we photograph lingerie in a boudoir type setting.
We will not photograph during this boudoir session:
lifestyle headshots for business cards
full street style clothing
lifestyle photography wardrobe including full pant suits, business attire etc.
These are all considered a lifestyle photo shoot and we are shooting Boudoir. You can purchase a "lifestyle photoshoot" with us separately if you would like to email about that - please do.
If you are wondering what kinds of lingerie to bring or what are sets may look like :
Please see our Instagram where you will find our style of boudoir photography, sets, and style of lingerie we photograph.
You can also look on Pinterest under "boudoir photo ideas" so you can see clothing ideas.
Please look through our images on our web site and Instagram. These are natural light photos. This is our style. Please make sure that what you are looking to capture matches our style of boudoir photography as well.
Image approval and delivery
What is a Digital Image:
this is the file that is taken that can be printed.
You will receive digital images from us, unless you choose to order paper prints or an album.
Paid in Full: Images will be naturally edited and approved by client within 48 hours -2 weeks post shoot ( this depends on how caught up our editing team is) Once the images are presented in the online gallery, client will have the opportunity to approve and download images. Once the images are downloaded by client, no further editing will be done and file is closed.
Due to editing time on chosen images- no "swapping" out of images 24 hours post sale and when gallery is presented. Client may add images to selection.
Paper Prints/Albums: Our beautiful Box Prints and Albums are very popular and may be ordered. These take up to 1 - 5 weeks to arrive once images are approved for print by client. ( we do not print anything in studio- these will come from our professional photo lab)
ALL SALES are final 24 hours after your photoshoot and studio ordering session.
PUNCTUALITY: Please arrive on time to your appointment. Sometimes shoots are scheduled back-to back, and to avoid a rushed shoot, or having to reschedule altogether, it is imperative that you arrive on time, or even a few minutes early. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment or arrive without your wardrobe, you will be asked to reschedule and your deposit will be forefit. A new deposit will be required for the new date.
Please map our address: 12290 Washington Highway Ashland VA 23005 and look at where you are coming on google. We are in a large cottage like building. We are located on the side parking lot and side entrance. A car dealership has the front lot and entrance. Although our building is very big, AND on a main highway- many people drive right on by, please look for THE STUDIO on the sign.
*Getting lost or miscalculating drive time (with traffic conditions) on the day of the shoot is not an excuse for being late, and we will not take your appointment if you are more than 15 minutes late*
If a “force of nature” causes the cancellation of your session (including but not limited to road closures due to weather conditions, war, and natural disasters), we may reschedule your session at a future date within 365 days or distribute a refund of the session fee at our discretion.
LIMIT OF FILE STORAGE: Our Photography Studio does not hold images after your shoot and order session. We may choose to keep the photos you purchase only for a limited time after your order until products are received; however, images will never be kept longer than 30 days.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Relatives and friends are not allowed in the photography area and will be able to sit in our lounge to wait for your session to finish.
