A Few Questions & Answers

Do you provide hair and makeup services?

Yes! That is a part of your photoshoot experience. I work with a select number of incredible hair & makeup artists who can take you from daytime chic to red carpet magic in the space of a single session. I always recommend that my clients get the makeover, even if it's a light, understated touch.

Will I receive all the images from the shoot?

After your session, I'll make a first pass and remove out all the shots that are out of focus, unflattering or don't meet my aesthetic requirements. I'll then cull the rest down to the best of the best.

These will be put into an online gallery, including one or two that will have been retouched so you can see what my post processing is like. From this gallery which you will make your final choice of your must haves. You only buy what you love.

Should I loose a few pounds before I schedule a session?

You do not have to be a size four to look beautiful in photographs. Very few of my clients are model size and weight. Who is?

I know that most of us expect to be photographed when we are looking our slimmest but if you're like me, that was at age 25! If you look deep inside yourself, you already know you're beautiful and sexy at this very moment in your life. You deserve to be celebrated in all your wonderful, gorgeous, exciting uniqueness.

It's my job to help draw out your inner goddess no matter what size you are. Besides, I’ve got posing tricks that will help you look 10lbs lighter in camera angles alone.

I hate myself in photos, why will this shoot be any different?

I've rarely met a woman who loves the way she looks in 90% of the photos that are taken of her. Why do you think we're selfie obsessed? We're on a mission to capture the best shot of ourselves. But that takes a combination of photographic talent, the right lighting, technical know-how, great makeup and above all, the ability to help you relax in front of the camera so you can let go of your inhibitions, and allow yourself to be seen for who you are.

That's when the magic happens and it's what I do best.

You might come to your shoot feeling unsure, insecure or out of your element, but I promise you'll end up feeling empowered, more confident and more like yourself then you migth have in years. I guarantee you'll love the results.

I’m excited to do this! How do I get started?

I can't wait to chat with you about how you dream of being photographed. As a luxury service provider, I create custom packages to meet each clients’ individual needs, so no two sessions are alike. We'll design a photoshoot that is as unique as you are in style in execution.

Please call or email me any time at Nicolette@NJPphotography.com - 310.622.4580.

Where would we shoot?

I can photograph you almost anywhere you feel inspired, or where we agree will best serve your image needs. This can be in the privacy of your home, at the beach, in the park, in a hotel room or in a fabulous airbnb. For those who want a studio experience, we can rent any number of professional spaces in and around Los Angeles. I am also available for destination shoots in the US and abroad to make your photo dreams a reality.

How much should I budget for a photoshoot with you?

On average my clients spend $750 for a personal branding headshot session and $2,500 for a modern glam or lifestyle branding session. Please connect with me directly to get my list of rates and services.

Do you provide payment plans?

Yes, absolutely. We can create payment options that fit your needs. You will receive your images after payment of your final invoice.

Do I get the digitals?

Each image you purchase comes with its corresponding digital file in web and print ready resolutions at the purchase sizes. For example, let's say you want to purchase a coffee table book with a total of 35 images. You will receive 70 photos total (35 portraits, each as a web and print ready version measuring 8x12 inches).

What if I need to cancel?

If for whatever reason you'd like to cancel your portrait session, please do so up to one week before the scheduled date in order to receive a full refund of your booking fee. If you fail to show at the appointed date/time or you cancel your session less than 12 hours before your shoot date, you might loose a portion of your deposit for booked non-refundable services like studio rental, hair and makeup, wardrobe styling, etc. However, in the event I have to cancel our shoot, you'll have the option to rebook at a later date at no extra cost, or receive a full refund of your session fee.

Do you help with outfits and wardrobe?

Yes! As part of your pre-session consult, a lot of what we do will revolve around prepping your wardrobe. It's very important to me that we take the time to decide on the right clothing and fashion items that best represent your brand. I would not photograph a Silicon Beach techie in the same way I would a musician or a C-suite executive. That is why we will spend some time making sure your outfits complement and sustain your choice environment and overall brand look. If you would like the assistance of a professional wardrobe stylist, we can arrange for virtual or in- person consulting.

I offer personal branding and modern glamour portrait photography in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange counties.
