The best part!!! If you choose a studio session or out and about, please arrive prepared and ready to go! Please have complete outfits and accessories together on hangers. Wrinkles will show in your photographs. Also, shoes, correct undergarments, touch up gloss and hair tools ready to go. We will go over selections and figure out locations and/or backdrops before shooting.
Your images will be ready 2 weeks after your session. We will meet at The Lark Studio for your appointment. This is when we will go over your images, pick your favorites and order the products you wish. We will start with a slideshow and totally help you along the way. Be sure to have everyone at the appointment that can help make ordering decisions. Plan to spend about 1.5 hours with the process.
Reserve your session....The Lark Studio books the sessions on a first come basis. The optimal times get taken very quickly. This means if you don't want your images taken until August you should still book as soon as possible to hold your spot. Just give us a call and we can get you in the books before they get filled. We will get you a session time and a time to order your images. A deposit will be required upon booking to hold your session, it will go toward your session and the balance applied to your future order.
Start thinking of all the different outfits and looks you'd like to see. The most important thing is to be yourself and feel great! If you have a certain style in mind we can help you with that look. Make sure the outfits you choose are styled from head to toe, as everything will show. Vary the colors you wear, and a top the same color as your eyes looks awesome for that close head shot. Bring more than you need and we can help you style. Be sure to visit our Pinterest board and check out some of the ideas.
Remember...Sleeveless and strapless make arms look LARGER. Be aware of this. Tight clothes...not flattering to anyone. They make you look larger than you are.
Hair color and cutting should be done one week before session. Chasing Vanity Salon and Spa is our preferred stylist for all our sessions. They will also consult with you for color and cut if you would like to have that done the week before your session. They will work with you to make you look the most "you." Bring ideas and images to show your stylist what you would like the day of your session.
Glasses.....we LOVE them (even if you don't need them!) But.....please remove the lenses as they will leave a glare! Your optician can do this for you.
Fingernails...Yes, they will show, make sure they are clean and polished or buffed. A light polish looks the best!
Tanning....We love a light glow, but baking in the sun and tan lines are not attractive. Lines will show and may require extra retouching fees to remove them if needed. Red and burned skin cannot be retouched. stay away from spray tans unless you like a sunkist orange look.
When you call the studio you will talk with Marta about the type of session that best fits you and your style.
Together, we will go over your ideas and products for the best outcome. The Lark Studio also works exclusively with Chasing Vanity Salon and Spa in downtown GR to bring out the best and most beautiful you. Guys your not left out! You may have a cut and shave if you are up for it. But we LOVE the stubble!
