Your Session Information

Your session will be done outdoors with natural light. Should you require an indoor environment an extra fee will be applied of $75 to the Session.

A variety of looks will be shot over the course of the session allowing you to mix up the shots for whatever marketing purposes you choose.

During the session, we will inspect the shots we take one by one with you to determine whether or not it is a usable image and how it might be improved, by doing so we will be able to focus the shots and tailor them to your specific needs.

The approved shots will be made available on your own password protected page (on the GC website). The images are usually posted within 1-2 days after the session is over. You will be able to give the password to anyone who might help you choose the shots you decide to use. Once the session is over then it’s your responsibility to work with the images that we decide to keep during your session. Should you decide to return and cover anything you feel we may have missed then you can take advantage of the returning client fee.

Retouching

Once you’ve chosen the shots you’d like to work with you can place an order for retouching. For quality and control retouching is done GC Photography. High resolution RAW files are not released directly to clients unless you choose to purchase a full buyout of your entire session for $300. Should you choose this option you would still be able to work with our retouching team or are welcomed to take the images to a retouching lab of choice.

Clothing

Feel free to bring a range of different options for clothing. It is recommended a white plain top be one of the clothing choices that you should bring. A good range of different colours and necklines are most certainly suggested.

Hair and Makeup

Woman’s Makeup:

Make up for the session is highly recommended for all woman. The cost is $100 for make up for the session.

Woman’s Hair:

I would suggest that everyone come in with their hair ready the way you would like to present yourself.
