FAQ'S | Velvet Thyme

Frequently Asked Questions

Whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. Some folks like to go full nude while others prefer to be fully clothed or somewhere in between, others go with how they feel on the day. Whatever you choose we will totally rock it!

I send through a questionnaire before the session to make sure we are both 100% on the page with what makes you comfortable.

With your permission, I love to show off your beautiful photographs in my promotional material. But rest assured that your photographs will never be made public without your express permission, what matters most is your comfort.

Around two hours of photography plus breaks, sometimes more or less depending on the shoot. We work at your pace so you don’t feel rushed – it is not uncommon for shoots to run over!

Straight after your shoot we look through your unedited photos so that you can decide what you would like – the time for this can vary a lot, but on average around one hour.

If you book a Velvet Experience add 1.5h for hair and makeup prior to your shoot. Light snacks and unlimited drinks are provided in studio but, as shoots often run across lunch, please feel free to pack something more substantial.

We’re going to be good friends – lets talk 😊

These sessions are mostly held in my home studio 20 mins west of Adelaide. This completely private and relaxed setting gives us a variety of photographic options.

I do offer outdoor, on-location shoots as there are so many amazing spaces in South Australia for this! have a peek at this shoot held at Skye Lookout.

The temperature of the studio reflects the season, the studio is kept at a comfortable temperature – goose bumps are not a good look for a photo session! I always ask you during the sessions if the temperature is right, and we can adjust it as we go to make sure its just perfect for you.

Don’t worry at all – I will guide you through a variety of different poses to get you started, but I encourage you to be be playful, try different things and let your personality shine.

Anyone 18 years or older is welcome 🙂  My clients are typically from a very wide age group. Please note that you will be asked to provide photographic identification no matter your age.

You’re not alone, most people arrive with some nerves but end feeling AMAZING.

We begin the session with drink and a relaxed chat in case theres anything else we need to cover or you have any last minute ideas or questions.

We’ll have a laugh, dance around, talk about life and before you know it the time will have evaporated and you’ll be feeling awesome!

If you choose the Velvet Experience hairstyling and makeup is included.  We have looked widely to find highly skilled artists that embrace our ethos and create AMAZING hair and makeup.

I have lots of props and fabric that we can play with, but I encourage you to bring the clothing etc. that makes you feel good.

That can be anything from your favourite jeans, bra, a top hat, 3 piece suit or dress – really anything!

Before your shoot I send you through some questions and an information sheet to make sure you are 100% in the know. If you have any questions or concerns always feel free to contact me 🙂 

Yes! Gift vouchers are a lovely and thoughtful gift. These shoots are a great confidence booster and create artwork that is the gift that keeps giving.
