Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear to my shoot?
COLOR, COLOR COLOR. You can’t go wrong with colors! Crazy patterns, Color Blocking, African prints you name it. It’s always great to bring a few accessories with you. A cute hat or a stylish jacket can transform you from one look into another without the need for a complete wardrobe change. When making your clothing selection(s) please consider the cut of your top. Also, if you are thinking of wearing a dress or skirt, please keep in mind that we will be moving around a lot. Make sure to choose attire in which you will be comfortable and able to move. That said, dresses can make for some really fun and dramatic pictures! Please check out BGKI on Pinterest.
Where will my shoot take place?
As you know I am a natural light photographer so your shoot will be taken outdoor. Before I decide on a location, I always ask to see the outfits a week prior to shooting. It is very important to text me your outfits 7 days prior because some locations requires that I ask for permission first.
I see that you have a makeup artist. Can i use my own mua?
Unfortunately, NO! Your makeup artist maybe super talented, but I personally Like to work with the MUA's I've worked with in the past due to editing purposes. Please understand, just because a makeup artist work may look GOOD doesn't mean that they cater to makeup for photography; that is a huge factor when it comes to editing.
Can I bring family or friends to watch?
How do I book my session with you?
What's the difference between your Personality and Free Spirit Session?
The Free Spirit Session is design for those who love to thrift and have a unique sense of style. Clients wanting to book a Free Spirit session will need to submit 4 to 5 outfits to me prior to session deposit. If the outfits do fit for this session, my Personality Session would be a better fit for you.
How long will it take to recieve my gallery?
Your gallery will be ready 2 weeks after shooting. I will post at least 3 sneak peeks Via Instagram and Facebook. Make sure to follow me so I can tag you as soon as your sneak peeks go up!
What if I'm running late?
Please respect my time as I will respect yours.
What if it rains?
Weather definitely plays a role in our photo shoot with you! We never compromise your photo day and never take a chance, so if rain or heavy winds are in the forecast we simply reschedule a day that works for you!
How would you describe your photography style?
I would describe my style as " Hey girl, let's go to the thrift store find something, put it together and lets shoot" type thingy lol makes sense?. I love colors. I don't like things that make sense.
When should I send you my outfit choices?
Unless you are booking a Free Spirit Session, outfits should be submitted 7 days prior to shooting. Some locations require I get prior permission, so the submission deadline is NON NEGOTIABLE. If I do not receive your outfits in time, we will have to reschedule when another become available.
