Send me a message and tell me about your hopes and dreams! Who are you, how did you find me, what do you wish from your photoshoot? When would be the optimal time and where do you want us to shoot (you are welcome to our home studio in Turku, but it can also be anywhere else)?
Note! Our home studio is not accessible: there are four steps from the front door to the elevator and the elevator is 69,5 cm wide. Our toilet space is tight. If you need an accessible space, let me know and we’ll find one for our shoot with no extra charge.
I will get back to you within 24 hours, probably ask some more questions and propose few dates. When we set the date, I’ll send you a contract to sign, all the info you need for your next step and an invoice for the 200 € deposit.
Planning & preparing
I’ll send you a guide to help you prepare for your photoshoot. In addition to preparing tips, there will be some questions and a request for you to collect some visual references to guide our planning as well as a playlist for your shoot to set you in the right mood!
Planning is a big part of the process. You’ll get a perfect chance to reflect on your body image and what you hope from the photoshoot. If you, for example, have trauma triggers that we can take into account, let me know. The more you plan, the more you tell, the more precisely we can meet your needs!
On your day, I will be holding the camera and my partner Tinksu will help you with everything else! We are here for you from the moment we meet to the moment you go home with a smile on your face. If you booked makeup and hair, we’ll spend the first hour chatting and getting to know each other a little better while you’re being prepared. Even if you come to our studio ready for the shoot, we’ll still sit down, chat a bit and discuss our common rules and wishes before we start.
There’s no time limit for the photoshoot, but it usually takes approximately two hours – I ask you to schedule as much as you can (at least three hours) to avoid the hustle. During your shoot we will tell you what to do, you don’t have to know anything beforehand! We won’t force you in any precise poses but rather give you ideas and options by showing examples. We never touch you without consent or comment on your body in any way!
If you choose a smaller package, you have two options: you can get an online gallery and instructions for selecting your photos and possible products via email within a week, or you can come to our studio, have a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of wine, find the same relaxed mood we had during your shoot, and go through your images for the first time together with me. In our meeting I will help you choose the photos and possible products that you will cherish forever.
