Why Cuddle Sessions?
It's important when you're in a relationship to take time away to focus on each other and your love.  This 45 minute session is time for you guys to focus on each other while we capture your love in photos that you can look at for a lifetime and share with your family and friends.  Don't don't back in sharing your love for each other and showing it off.  Hang photos on your wall, give as gifts to family members and show off on social media!

 

PS Photography Cuddle Session FAQ's:  What to Expect at Your Shoot

A few quick FAQs:
-Jonathan or Trina will be your photographer
-
The shoot will be taking place at our 2500 sq ft studio, located at 2512 S C St, Tacoma, WA 98402.
-The main entrance is a garage door.  You can park in front of the garage door or across the street on the street. 
-If the garage door is closed when you arrive, text 206-900-1336 letting us know you are there.

-Although not necessary, we recommend our clients get their hair and makeup professionally done.  If you're looking for recommendations of stylists, we can certainly recommend some.  Check the bottom of this page for some recommendations.  Please come to the studio fully ready so that your getting ready time will not take out of the shoot time.
-For a 45 minute session, we recommend 1-2 outfits.  Since change time does take out of the shoot time, we are not able to
accommodate more than 1outfit change.  
-What people choose to wear varies greatly and is completely up to you; however, note that these are NOT couples boudoir shoots and you do need to be fully dressed.
-The turn around time is approx. 1-2 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options.  $40 for 3 day turn around and $20 for a guaranteed 7 day turn around time.  I likely won't go over these options, so please bring it up in an email before or right after your shoot if you know you'll want rush editing.
-Please do not bring friends or children to the studio as it makes it more difficult to do the shoot.
-Once your photos are done, you'll come to my downtown Tacoma location and choose the ones you want. All photo ordering sessions happen at my downtown Tacoma office.  There are no exceptions unless you pay in advance for all the digitals or the digitals and the book.  Unless you're purchasing all the digitals, you do have to come meet in person and view them.  I do not ever release anything online that hasn't been purchased.  All decisions do have to be made at this appointment.
-All our clients love their photos.  Most clients spend between $750+ on images/products.  You can view the full pricing guide here.  If you're unable to pay in full, you can set up a payment plan or use PayPal credit.  If you're interested in looking into PayPal Credit, you can do so at
https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit  They offer 6 month with no interest and no fees.
-Any images you get in a digital format are for digital use only.  Any prints you would like do have to be ordered through us.  We take great pride in our work and want you to have beautifully displayed images that have been professionally printed.
-All photos have basic retouching done, and will have skin softening. If you want advanced editing on more photos, such as more skin softening and body contouring, that can be done for $20 per edit, per image.  Certain edits may need to be outsourced and I'll have to provide a custom quote for those.  Most people love the photos with the original edits, and rarely does anyone request advanced editing, so I recommend you view the photos first, and then decide if you want to add extra editing to your package.
-All shoots, photo ordering sessions and print/album pick ups are by appointment only.  Please only show up if you have a confirmed appointment.  To schedule a shoot appointment, go to
http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina and choose a date with Cuddle Session listed.  For all other appointments, email me at [email protected]
-All scheduling happens online at http://psphotography.brownbookit.com/schedules/trina  I recommend scheduling from a computer and not a mobile device as mobile devices sometimes don't finish the booking process. Once you schedule you'll get an auto confirmation in your email.  If you don't get that auto confirmation, message us at [email protected] to verify that you're on the calendar.
-Any dates showing on the calendar that do not show time slots are already fully booked.  If someone cancels for that day, the time slot will appear back on the calendar at that time.  I typically don't book more than 4 weeks out and cannot take custom date requests at this time.  What's listed on the calendar is my complete availability.
-If you have any questions about your appointment that have not been addressed here, you can messages me at [email protected] Please do NOT message me on Facebook messenger. I do not have it on my phone and will likely not get any messages sent through messenger.  Even if I do get a message and respond to it, please do all future correspondence through my email at [email protected]   
-Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your shoot.  If you get there early, you can text me at 206-900-1336 and if I'm free I'll let you know that you can come in. 
-If you need to reschedule I need at least 24 hours notice and there is a $29 rescheduling fee.
-If you are more than 20 minutes late, I will assume you are a no show and may leave the studio or start my next session.  If you are going to be more than 20 minutes late, you must email me at [email protected] and/or text 206-900-1336 letting me know you are still coming and we will shoot with whatever time is still left in your time-slot.  I'm a fast and efficient photographer, so even if we don't have a lot of time, I can still get a ton of amazing things, so please don't stress if you're late.  I am unable to go over time as I will likely have another appointment after yours.  If you miss your appointment or show up late, you will not receive a refund.  All retainers/session fees are non-refundable.  So please make sure to map on the address in advance and plan for traffic and other obstacles. 

-Be sure to participate in the group https://www.facebook.com/groups/boudoirphotographer/
-If you have anymore questions, you can contact me at [email protected] and Grace (my administrative assistant) or I will get back to you.  
-Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with you!




Hair and Makeup Recommendations
-Most clients love their photos even more if they got their hair and makeup professionally done. I also find those that get their hair and makeup done often feel more confident during the shoot.  Here are some ladies that I have worked with and highly recommend.  If you do decide to go with one of them, make sure you let them know that you're having your shoot with me.  Please note that because I'm often shooting back to back, your hair and makeup time cannot happen at my studio.  You will have to go to your stylist's location, have them come to you if they're willing, or meet them somewhere.  Thanks for understanding, and feel free to check out these awesome ladies!
