How do I join a session?
We hold online sign ups on our Mirror Mirror Facebook page for each theme we will be shooting. We have 10 spots available for each shoot. Sign ups are first come, first serve. We will announce sign up times on the page. We do three months of signups at a time. Once the sign up post goes live, you simply comment your email address. There is a small $20 fee to join shoots, that is due at time of sign ups. You will be invoiced electronically. If the invoice is not paid within the hour (unless other arraignments are made) you will lose your spot. See below for themes and sign up schedule.
Are the costumes and/or hair and makeup provided?
We do not provide costumes and/or hair and makeup. We do however provide ideas and help if you feel lost, and need guidance. We have built an amazing online community of girls that love to help each other out with costumes. We also have a few girls that volunteer to help with hair and make up if needed. Please join our chat group. You'll receive all the help you could ever need!
Do I have to dress up?
YES, YES, YES!!! We challenge you to push your creativity and come up with a costume for each theme. We give this project 110% and ask participates to do the same! We have pinterest boards for each month for inspiration. The more you put into the project, the more you will get back.
What happens at the shoot?
Normally we break the 10 girls up into 2 groups. Depending on which group you are in you will show up at your designated time and location. You should be in your costume and ready to shoot! Once the shoot starts you will either work with Ashley or Savannah first and once you are done shooting with them, you will go to the other photographer. Each photographer will guide you through posing and create beautiful images for you! During down time its a great time to chat and make new friends with the other girls.
Can my significant other or children join the shoot and be in my pictures?
This year we are allowing your significant other to join the shoots, but they must come in costume as well! We don't however allow children unless specified.
What happens after the shoot?
After the shoot we try and get a sneak peek of each girls up on our facebook page within a few days. Normally within 2 weeks we will each post a link to our galleries in the chat. You will receive galleries of 3-5 images from each photographer. You are able to download your images from the galleries.
Can I share my images?
Yes, please share! All we ask is you don't edit, filter, or change the photograph in any way. And also give the photographer credit!
