FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


AFTER MY PHOTOSHOOT, WILL MY IMAGES BE POSTED PUBLICLY FOR ANYONE TO SEE? CAN I REQUEST THAT MY IMAGES STAY PRIVATE?

All images from your photoshoot will remain 100% private and will ONLY be shared publicly when permission is given BY YOU by means of a signed model release.


I REALLY WANT TO HAVE THIS PHOTOSHOOT EXPERIENCE BUT I DON’T THINK I CAN AFFORD IT. IS THERE A WAY I CAN MAKE PAYMENTS?

YES! In fact, Sasha Dale Photography offers TWO payment plan options for you to choose from based on your needs! You can read more about those HERE.


I HAVE ABSOLUTELY ZERO LINGERIE AND NOT SURE I EVEN LOOK GOOD IN IT OR FEEL COMFORTABLE WEARING IT. DO I HAVE TO WEAR LINGERIE TO MY SHOOT?

What you wear during your photoshoot experience with us is solely based on your comfort levels. You wear as much - or as little - as you want. While we believe that the biggest victories in our journey to self-love comes from stepping outside our comfort zones, we will NEVER push you to do something that you are just not ready to do. That being said - we DO offer an in-person wardrobe consultation and session planning meeting before your shoot so we can discuss your comfort levels and wardrobe selections. During this meeting, you have the opportunity to try on lingerie from our studio (we have so many styles and sizes) to see if you still feel the same way about wearing some during your shoot. Either way - we suggest other wardrobe options as well including kimonos, oversized shirts, sweaters and button-ups, dresses, jeans - basically ANYTHING that you feel absolutely stunning in, and in the words of Marie Kondo - anything that brings you joy.


HOW DO YOU CARE FOR THE LINGERIE AND WARDROBE IN YOUR STUDIO AFTER SOMEONE HAS WORN IT?

If you choose to wear a piece of lingerie or wardrobe item that we have in our studio, we will have you toss it into a lingerie basket so that we can wash it. Our lingerie items get washed with regular detergent on the delicate/handswash cycle- HOT.


I’M SELF CONSCIOUS ABOUT [SKIN/BLEMISHES/ACNE/SCARS]…DO YOU OFFER RETOUCHING?

Professional retouching is included with every custom portrait session. I remove acne, blemishes, bruises and injuries (marks that will naturally be gone within 2 weeks) and I soften cellulite and skin tones. Stretchmarks are a case-by-case. Many women choose to celebrate/embrace their stretchmarks because they are a marking of where they have been on their journeys- so I only remove these upon request. The same goes with scars.


WHERE DOES THE PHOTOSHOOT TAKE PLACE? DO YOU COME TO MY HOME? DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?

Your photoshoot will take place at our studio located at 187 Central Avenue, Norwich CT. We have a gorgeous 1,000 SF private studio space with several custom sets to use during your shoot, a hair and makeup vanity, bathroom (a must always!), a stocked wardrobe full of lingerie, accessories and shots - oh and of course, a coffee bar.


CAN I BRING A FRIEND WITH ME TO MY SHOOT?

We invite you to bring a friend along for the hair and makeup portion of your session if you would like moral support while you gear up for your shoot.

For the shoot itself, we DO NOT allow anyone else to be present. Even a best friend can be distracting because the attention isn’t completely on you! While I’m photographing your session your friend can grab coffee at one of several local shops while he/she waits.


IS HAIR AND MAKEUP INCLUDED IN MY SESSION? CAN I OPT TO DO MY OWN TO SAVE MONEY?

Professional hair and makeup application is included with EVERY custom session. Having professional styling prior to your shoot sets to mood for your experience. It is the time for you to relax and slowly prepare yourself to be infront of the camera. PLUS-having a professional do your makeup means they know how to do camera-ready makeup that will truly make you feel and look sexy! 


I’VE NEVER MODELED BEFORE SO I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO POSE. WILL YOU BE HELPING ME?

This is by far the biggest concern for my clients! Rest assured that I will work with you through each and every pose during your session. I guide you from your legs, arms, fingertips, chin and facial expression. Sometimes you’ll feel awkward - like - “this feels like I look silly” but trust in me. From where I stand - it looks amazing.  By the end of the session - you’ll be hitting the poses before I even finish my sentences!


HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION LAST?

Professional styling takes about an hour to an hour and a half on average. The photoshoot will last an additional two hours so your entire shoot day will last approximately 3.5-4 hours.


HOW LONG AFTER MY SESSION WILL I SEE THE PHOTOS?

About 2 weeks after your shoot, you will be invited back to our studio for your private in-person reveal and ordering appointment. Here is where you will have the opportunity to watch your fully-customized session music-video and slideshow with the final retouched photos from your shoot.

During this appointment, you will also place your product orders and make your product payment (or set-up a payment plan). Products will be ready for pick-up within 2-3 weeks after your order is placed!


I’M COMING FROM OUT OF STATE- WHERE CAN I STAY?

Many of my clients travel in for their sessions from out of the area such as NY, MA and PA. Please let me know if you’re interested in booking a place to stay while you’re in town and I would be happy to share some recommendations as well as a few great places to dine!


WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?

If you contact us to reschedule with less than 14 days notice, if you reschedule more than once, OR if you forget about your appointment all together, your non-refundable session fee will also be non-transferable. When you sign the contract, I’m blocking that day and paying a makeup artist to block their calendar. I’m also turning away people interested in shooting that day.

If you provide more than 14 days notice, you may transfer the portion of the session fee you’ve already paid to a future date within 60 days of your original session date.

Due to the custom nature of photography, the session fee and anything you purchase is non-refundable.
