DO YOU WORK WITH MOMS?
Absolutely! In fact, 75% of our clientele are moms who want to reclaim their beauty. Motherhood is tough work and it takes a toll on you. This experience is your chance to pamper yourself and do something for YOU. You are in the right place.
WILL MY IMAGES BE POSTED ONLINE?
ONLY with your permission. We respect our clients privacy first and foremost, which is why we obtain a signed model release for every image you see on our site. No model release, no post. Period. That decision is 100% yours.
DO YOU PROVIDE WARDROBE?
We do have a wardrobe closet you are welcome to use. However, we've found that most women bring 3-4 outfits that they love and those usually work the best because they know how the pieces fit them before coming in for the session.
CAN YOU WORK WITH CURVIER WOMEN?
We work with ALL women. The truth is, we all have our own insecurities, warranted or not. We do a ton of posing work and body manipulation with every client because their bodies are unique in their own way. We always pose to accentuate what you love and conceal what you don't as much as possible.
DO YOU SHOOT FULL NUDE?
Yes. But that doesn't mean that you have to do so. We photograph artistic nudity only and we find that most women want to be captured that way at some point during the session, however, that decision is totally up to you. We will photograph you in a turtleneck if you'd prefer us to :) At the end of the day, the decision is yours but we have found that the clients who usually love their results the most are the ones who pushed their boundaries a bit and really went all in on the experience.
HOW LONG ARE YOUR SESSIONS?
Sessions typically range 1.5 - 2 hours, but we don't put a hard cap on that. Generally speaking, after two hours of "boudoir yoga" (as we like to call it) your body will be sore and you'll need a bit of a break, so this is generally the stopping point. However, if inspiration is flowing and everyone is feeling great, we will shoot away!
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT?
Simply put, everything. We photograph differently, edit differently, treat our clients differently. We give 110% effort in EVERY aspect of our relationship with EVERY client. We're also a husband and wife team and this allows for a HUGE benefit to our clients, mainly because you get both male and female perspectives on every image created, which is a HUGE bonus, especially if this session is being gifted to a spouse or significant other. Also, by having two people involved, Ross can focus solely on composition and lighting while Jess focuses on posing and styling. It's a great combination and one that adds tremendous value to every clients experience.
DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?
We do not. However, we do have access to the best hair and makeup artists around and we work with them a lot. Also, if you book their hair and makeup services through us, we are able to secure a special, discounted rate for you as one of our clients! Pretty awesome, right?
HOW CAN I BECOME AN AMBASSADOR?
We are still crafting our Ambassador Program and accepting applications! If you're interested in representing Luminous and being a powerful voice heard by thousands of women, please shoot us a message at [email protected]
DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR MY ORDER IN FULL AT THE REVEAL?
Yes and no. We offer several installment plan options that go out as far as 12 months! If you used a payment option, the order is funded in full and the studio can fulfill it for your right away. From that point, you'd simply make a small monthly payment until the order is paid in full. If you do not use an installment, payment in full is due at the Image Reveal. Most clients use a credit card, specifically rewards cards so they can get bonus points out of the transaction. That's what we call killing two birds with one stone :) Either way, we've got you covered.
