Frequently Asked Questions
Your professional hair and makeup appointment is 90 minutes immediately before your photography session. Your session is 60 minutes long.
Your Getting Ready Guide has more details, but come with clean, dry hair, and bring your outfits on hangers. Wrinkles will show! If you’re undecided about what to wear, please bring everything you love and your photographer will help you choose the next 3 or 4 outfits for the session. Definitely bring accessories like jewelry, stockings, tube socks, shoes, hats, scarves or anything else that will make the session more personal for you.
Don’t worry. Every woman that comes in has a level of nervousness simply because they don’t know what to expect. Bring some wraps, robes, or maybe a men’s shirt if you feel more comfortable slightly covered. That can be just as sexy as showing a lot of skin.
Our photographers are experts at knowing how to pose women to flatter every body shape. Their knowledge of that, along with being experts with professional lighting, will highlight what you love and shadow what you don’t.
Before you leave the studio your photographer will help you schedule an appointment to meet with one of our Portrait Consultants within two weeks. At this appointment you will be placing your order, so please bring anyone you would like to help you make your decisions.
We have a fantastic group on Facebook, The Noir Collection - Kent Smith Photography. We would love you to join the group and take some time to read about the experiences of other women who have been photographed at our studio. If you need some inspiration, this is also a great resource for ideas about clothing for your session.
Absolutely not. Some women think of this more as a beauty session and being pretty outfits like an evening gown, casual suit, yoga pants and top, etc. The intent is for you to feel beautiful and worthy, not necessarily show as much skin as possible. But bring something a little sexy just in case! You might be surprised and want to be photographed in it. If not, that’s perfectly ok, but definitely be prepared in case you change your mind.
Of course! If you would like these issues retouched before you see your images please let your photographer know. If not, they will be retouched after you place your order.
Of course! There is likely not a woman alive who isn’t as young or thin as she would like to be. You’re perfect and worthy just the way you are. The little things that we’re so critical of as women don’t matter to the people who love us. Let us show you how amazing you are!
Yes. Please mention it when you book your session so we can make sure to plan accordingly for your visit to the studio. We want you to feel welcome and without stress, so if we need to do anything to prepare for your visit we want to have that taken care of in advance for you.
Yes, bring your own lingerie. We have a Client Closet that has some specialty pieces like faux furs, robes, tiaras, jackets, etc. that you are welcome to borrow for your session. If there is something specific you would like to know about please ask in advance.
We require 7 business days notice to reschedule or cancel your session without forfeiting the session fee or reservation deposit (depending on the type of session you have.) Please make sure the date and time you choose does work for you.
If you book a weekend appointment, please be sure of your calendar commitments. Weekend appointments cannot be cancelled or rescheduled.
