RETOUCHING
Once you’ve chosen your final images, stray hairs, blemishes, excess shine, under eye darkness and minor skin tone issues will all be fixed in retouching. That being said, it's imperative you look like yourself. Adjustments that change the structure of your face or remove permanent elements of your face will not be done. The remaining files can be downloaded but will remain watermarked and I’ll keep the files on backup should you decide to retouch additonal images at a later date.

SOCIAL MEDIA/ PHOTO CREDIT
Please tag christina cox_photo and your makeup artist on your Instagram posts- and we’ll be sure to tag you too! For IMDB, web or other publications please use Christina Cox Photography. I respectfully ask you resist the urge to add filters, they change the intended outcome of the photos and don’t reflect my portfolio.

LOCATION
All sessions will take place in my studio near Dufferin & Dupont unless otherwise arranged. Addtional fees will be required for on location sessions. Please message me to discuss.


PAYMENT
Session payment can be etransfer, cash or credit.

A $75.00 deposit will be required via Interac E-Transfer to book your session. Fully refundable if cancelled or rescheduled within 48 hours but please give as much notice as possible to make changes. No shows on shoot day will not be rebooked.


TIPS & INFO FOR A GREAT SESSION
Prepare in advance: Take some time leading up to the session choosing your wardrobe and what you’re hoping to achieve and express with it. Make sure your clothes are in good condition, clean and pressed. We can touch up with our steamer but ultimately let’s spend time shooting, not steaming your shirt! Stick to solids and textures rather than busy patterns. We’ll be shooting quite tight for headshots so focus on shirts, jackets, t-shirts and sweaters. Make sure to choose colors you love and clothes that make you feel good. Please bring plenty of clothing - always better to have a wealth of options!

Communicate. Talk to your agent or manager about what they’d like to see from your photos and what would help them pitch you more effectively and communicate that to me. It will help both of us hone in what our focus is, both for wardrobe and tone. No agent? No problem! I’m more than happy to have a video chat to discuss.

If you need to touch up your hair color or get a trim- now’s the time! Try and avoid getting your hair done the day before- if something needs to be adjusted, you’ll want time to fix it. Also, fresh colour and men’s cuts need a couple days to look less “sharp”.

Unless you’re an avid user of self tanner, and it’s how you always present yourself, now is not the time to try it. Seriously. I’ve seen it go horribly wrong.

Hydrate. Sounds simple but makes a huge difference. In the days leading up to your session, take care of yourself; get some fresh air, plenty of rest and drink lots of water. Avoid “recreational” substances the night prior. (That includes alcohol.)

Be on time for your session. Make sure you give yourself time to find parking and get up to the studio without rushing. If you have a lot of clothing, I can meet you in the loading bay to help unload before you find parking. Being early allows you time for each part of your day to happen at a relaxed pace. Stress, panic and photoshoots don’t mix. If you’re early, the area has tons of great cafes where you can grab a beverage or a snack to keep you going. Being late reduces the amount of time we have to work together as I may have another client coming in after.

PROFESSIONAL HAIR & MAKEUP
We have excellent Hair & Makeup Artists available for you at additional cost. I highly recommend using them for the best outcome - especially women. Photography requires a different technique than daily use or audition makeup and the artist can really help your best features stand out so you look your absolute BEST. This allows you to relax and focus on being in front of the camera.

Please come with your hair dry and styled as you would for an audition. Hair will be lightly styled but if you’re super curly and want it straight, please come with it straight. (And vice versa.)

If you are super confident and comfortable doing your own hair and makeup, please come camera ready with your touch up bag and styling tools. Keep your makeup light and natural. Excess makeup is harder to fix than makeup that is lightly applied. We can always add more as needed. Please be aware we won’t be able to accomodate reshoots if you’re unhappy and did your own HMU.

BEARDS
If you’d like to get shots with both versions of your facial hair, please come with your beard groomed as you would for auditions. Once we’re happy with those shots, you’re welcome to shave and then makeup will be retouched. The client will be responsible for cleaning up after shaving.
