• Sessions run approximately 1-1,5 hour, but I am happy to take more time if necessary.
  • Bring 4-5 changes of clothing. Classic, natural colors, try to avoid modern prints and short skirts. Don’t forget shoes. I’m available to discuss your looks before session, I will help you to find better choices by chatting on WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. or we can schedule video session beforehand to make sure you have all we need. 
  • You don’t need to have any experience in posing! During the session I will shoot straight to a computer so you can review your photos as we go along. This will help double check your outfits and expressions, but don’t worry, I’ll be guiding you every step to ensure you get beautiful portraits! 


Please get enough sleep before the photo session and do not make any important appointments and plans.

I want to make sure you're well rested, relaxed and your eyes will glow! Do not worry, I will show and explain how to stand, where to look and where to put your hands.

The studio has a corner with toys and books for children, tea and cookies, a clothes steamer and hairspray.


  • In 2-3 days after your session you will receive a link to the online gallery with previews.  You can choose images for the final detailed retouching, according to your plan. But you can purchase as many as you want anytime after photo session. Every extra photo for retouching is $35. 
  • Ready retouched photos you will receive in 2 weeks after photo-session in hi-resolution JPGs and also in small JPGs for social media. 
  • $100$ extra — If you want photos faster (in 3 business days).
  • Also you will get online gallery of all good photos taken during photo-session with color correction in hi-resolution. 


  • Unfortunately we don’t have make-up and hair artists at the studio, but you are welcome to bring yours. However, it will increase a time of photo-session and a fee. Approximately +1 hour and extra $100 for using studio time.
    • We advice you to arrive with hair and make-up done already. Makeup should be light and minimal with no heavy foundation. Nails polish should be transparent or nude, preferably short and without any visible nail designs. Especially for vintage and Fine-art photo sessions. 


  • For all bookings, we require a deposit of $100 to secure your appointment, with the package remainder payable on the day of your shoot (either with PayPal, by Zelle or cash).
  • If you didn’t find any day available time you want or you have a deadline or require a specific shoot date, please contact me first to check timescales and availability.
