GLAMOUR PHOTO SESSION
PS Photography Glamour FAQ's: What to Expect at Your Shoot
A few quick FAQs:
-Trina will be your photographer
-The shoot will be taking place at my 2500sq ft studio located at 2512 S C St Tacoma, WA 98402
-We highly recommend all of 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 getting your hair and makeup ready will not take out of your shoot time.
-For a 45 minute session 2 outfits fits the time best. You can use any dress/skirt available at the studio or bring your own outfits. We currently have sizes s-3x. I do add in a little cushion time to the appointment time for trying on outfits.
-The turn around time is approx. 2-3 weeks from your shoot date, so make sure you book with enough time; however, we do have some rush processing options. $40 for 5 day turn around and $20 for 10 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.
-You can bring a friend to the shoot if you wish, but she will need to be a female. Friends are NOT permitted to take photos with their camera or cell phone. If I see someone taking photos during the shoot I will ask them to stop and things will probably be awkward from that point on. If they continue, the shoot will be over and any remaining session time will be forfeited. If you are bringing a friend to your shoot, it is your responsibility to let them know that other than the hired photographer, photography is NOT permitted in the studio at any time.
-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.
-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.
-I may use images from your shoot on my site, on social media, for education, or other promotional purposes. If you are not okay with a model release, please email me at [email protected] and let me know and I will mark your images as no model release. Most clients, love having me use their images and show them off, but if you're not comfortable with that I 100% understand and will delete your images after you receive them.
-If you need to reach me you can email me at [email protected] Please do not send me messages on Facebook as there's no way for me to sort messages and I get tons every day and some get missed. Emailing me at [email protected] is the best way to reach me.
-All scheduling happens online at https://bookme.name/psphotography/

Choose a date and time and then enter your info. Enter your contact info and enter the PROMO CODE if you have one to reduce your session fee.
-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. 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]
-If you get to your shoot early, you can text me at 206-900-1336 and if I'm free I'll let you know that you can come in.
-I do not offer refunds. Once you schedule your session fee is a retainer that holds you slot. If you cancel you will lose that retainer. I do allow one reschedules with no fees if you give me at least 72 hours notice.
-If you are more than 10 minutes late to your shoot and do not text or email me, 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 10 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.
-The main entrance to the studio is a garage door. I keep it shut during shoots and typically keep it shut between shoots so we don't let all the heat out. When you arrive, just text me at 206-900-1336 and let me know you're there. Please only use that number on the shoot date and ordering appointment date. Any other time, please email me at [email protected] as I only keep that phone on my on shoot and appointment dates. If you arrive early and text me, I may not be able to get right back to you as I might be in a shoot still.
-After you text, once I'm ready I'll open the garage door and let you in. Please do not try to open the garage door yourself as if it's closed I may not be ready for you.

-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!
