Q & A

You have questions, we have answers...

Q. Why do I need a pre-portrait consultation?
A. Our complimentary pre-portrait consultation will be the perfect time to chat about your ideas and how we can best accommodate your thoughts, dreams and desires. Feel free to bring samples of what you’ve found so we can be better prepared for your RomanticGlimpses session. Remember . . . we have your best interest at heart so working together as a team is important to us!
We don’t want it to be stressful . . . so take some time and check out our Gallery on our website to see what other Divas have done. You can also look through magazines and catalogs (Maxim, Elle, W and Victoria's Secret are all great for posing, clothing and prop ideas) and if you're still not sure, don't worry, that's what we're here for!

Q. What do I bring to my session?
A. A RomanticGlimpses portrait experience is about creating images that capture the essence of what you think is sexy. So, the first step is for you to decide what that is. Lingerie? Satin sheets? Cutoffs, boots and a cowboy hat? Boy shorts and a tank top? Nylons and great heels? Nothing on at all? Is it sweet or seductive? Fitness looks or the curves of your body? A smile or coy expression? Is it laughter? Is it edgy with fun, funky lighting or softer and romantic? We'll discuss all of your choices with you in advance. The possibilities are endless . . .
The next step in deciding what to bring is to determine ‘why’ you’ve decided to participate in this diva adventure. Are you doing this for yourself or will the images be a gift for someone special? If so, what do you think they might like or think is sexy? Usually we find it’s a little bit of both.

Q. Do I need to come early to get ready?
A. Absolutely not! Simply arrive as scheduled and we'll be ready to roll!

Q. Is it normal to be nervous about my portrait session?
A. Yes, but you don’t need to be! As a husband and wife team with 25 years experience, you’ll quickly discover that you're working with true professionals! We'll spare no effort to make certain that you feel comfortable and enjoy the experience . . . this is all about YOU and discovering your inner diva. You may have some butterflies in your stomach at first, but once we get started . . . you’re going to relax and have a blast while we create amazing images that will truly represent you and your sensual inner self!

Q. I'm a little concerned about my weight. Do I need to drop a few pounds first?
A. I understand exactly how you feel. If I were coming in for portraits I'm sure I'd feel the same way. What you'll find is that we have techniques and tricks to enhance all your best features and play down those you are less than thrilled with. Digital retouching also gives us many wonderful tools to help "fool Mother Nature" a bit and insure that you look your absolute best ever! We guarantee it!

Q. I’ve never done this before . . . how will I know how to ‘pose’?
A. It’s not about ‘posing’ as much as it is about just being ‘you’. We’re going to work with you as a team to create images that represent what you think is sexy and we’ll be there to guide you through it. We'll help you pose, tell you where to look, when to smile, etc. We love this and we're professionals so just relax, have fun and trust us!

Q. Can I bring someone with me to the session?
A. You can certainly bring along a female companion to the session and we can understand why you think you might want to but . . . believe us . . . they will only serve as a distraction and make you more self-conscious. Photographing as a ‘team’ gives us the ability to have an amazing photographer working the magic behind the camera and also a stylist and assistant there to take care of the details and make sure you look fabulous.

Q. What happens after my RomanticGlimpses session?
A. About two weeks after the session, you’ll come back to the studio where you’ll see your images unveiled for you on the big screen in our theater. You can come by yourself, bring someone special or anyone you’d like to help you make your selection decisions.

Q. Will my images be retouched, and is it included in the price?
A. We take great pride in our photography and want nothing but the best for our clients. That means one of our highly skilled RomanticGlimpses artists will analyze each image and determine how artwork may best enhance it. Our signature style is a multi-step process that includes things like light blending of facial lines, softening of eye bags, whitening eyes and teeth, removing blemishes, lengthening or darkening eyelashes and removing facial shine. Our signature style is complimentary and included on any image you select for an album, wall portrait or additional investment. Extensive retouching services are also available and priced based on the amount of work necessary.

Q. Will my images be used on your website?
A. All the images you see on our website, our displays or our PR pieces have been approved for use in writing by the individuals photographed. You alone, have the option of signing a model release which would give us permission to use the images. . . if not, then we would NEVER publish or use an image from your personal session. We respect your right to privacy and that is a major reason you will view your images at our studio and not online.

Q. Can I bring ‘props’ to my RomanticGlimpses session?
A. Great idea! Personal props will really help personalize your photographs. Bring in any type of 'prop' you think will enhance your RomanticGlimpses experience but remember that it's really all about YOU and overdoing it can sometimes overwhelm the image.
This is another reason why we have a pre-portrait "Design Consultation" with you ahead of time to help plan out the look of your unique portraits.
