FAQ

HOW SHOULD I ARRIVE??

Come with freshly washed hair with no product in it. This makes styling easier and your hair will look glossier under lights. Please have no make-up on, including mascara. Normal moisturiser is fine.

Finger and toe nails should be either freshly painted or have all traces of nail polish removed. Make sure your cut, colour, waxing, eyebrow grooming or any other personal grooming requirements are done prior to your appointment.

WHAT DO I BRING??

We advise that you bring 3 to 4 sets of clothes such as, skirts, jeans, tops, long dress, gowns, including shoes, belts, jewellery, hats, gloves, scarves and accessories. You can also bring your favourite props or hobby items.

For men, we recommend including one set of long sleeved shirt, dress pants , jeans, t-shirts and shoes.

If you are mainly doing a boudoir themed shoot, please bring a variety of lingerie and accessories to help create the look you are after.

WHAT ABOUT ANY SPECIAL IDEAS I HAVE??

When you make the booking with Urban Life Photography make sure to explain any specific ideas that you have in mind for your shoot. This gives both the make up artist & photographer time to prepare so we can obtain the best results for the shoot.

If you have concepts or ideas you would like to recreate or a similar idea, email a couple of sample images to the studio before your session. When you arrive on the day bring the clothes and accessories needed to recreate your vision, and let our photographers take care of the rest.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST??

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY PHOTOS??
