Sara submark.png

SARA, mini style refresh

Sara is a young, dedicated teacher. Her husband is currently in grad school, so she's supporting the two of them off of her teachers salary. She is so hardworking that, during the summers or after school hours, she works as a real estate agent to bring in extra income. She searches for sales and spends her money wisely. As a teacher she has a natural passion for learning, and wants to educate herself about styling, shopping and creating a versatile wardrobe. Because she has a small budget, Sara wants to invest in a few hours with a personal stylist to go shopping together and learn how to shop and dress for herself. What she learns she will apply to future shopping trips, and soon enough she will know how to create outfits on her own!

The Sara mini-session includes:

I guide you through a hands-on shopping experience; assisting you in styling and teaching you what best suits your body type and wardrobe needs

HANNAH, lifestyle photoshoot

Hannah is the queen of multitasking. She's organized and intelligent, and gets things done efficiently and effectively. She is a new grandmother and loves nothing more than spending time chasing after her grandson and being with her family. She works several part-time jobs: assisting her husband in his business, maintaining the home, providing secretarial and executive assistance for a start-up company, teaching preschool... all of which she excels in. With the recent addition to the family, she wants to hire a photographer to capture this new stage of life. Although she has ideas for her family portraits, it requires a lot of planning and coordination for her to do on her own. Hannah needs help cultivating a vision and making sure everyone in the family looks cohesive and put together. The time that she could dedicate to the process is minimal, so she decides to invest in a photoshoot styling session. That way, she can spend more time on the things that matter most to her.

The Hannah styled photoshoot is ideal for family portraits, engagement photos, maternity photos, or senior portraits. The Hannah collection includes:

 

FREE introductory phone call

In-person consultation

Photoshoot development outlining the photoshoot vision and outfitting ideas.

Building a Capsule Wardrobe, $225*

MONET, full style update

Monet is a successful business owner. In the early stages, she worked hard to get her business off the ground and she continues to work around the clock to keep it afloat. She doesn't have children of her own, so her business has become her baby. Monet pours herself into her work, her clients and her friends. Although her work is fulfilling, she doesn't have time to spend on herself let alone shop for clothes. She wants to rework her wardrobe to reflect her innovative personality and create a style tailored to Monet.

Linley submark.png

LINLEY, virtual full style update

Linley is a selfless, stay-at-home mom. She sacrifices for her family everyday, and it brings her joy to provide a safe, loving and laughter-filled home for her husband and toddler. She spends most of her time caring for her son; taking him to museums, visiting family, exploring local parks, or strolling through their neighborhood. While her son naps or is cared for by a babysitter, she maintains their home. Linley spends her time generously giving to others, and when she has free time, her family takes precedence. Since giving birth to her son, she has had difficulties finding clothes that are comfortable and cute, and wants to refine her style now that she is a mother.  A virtual styling session is ideal for her unpredictable schedule, and it can work alongside her life.

Emily submark.png

EMILY, wardrobe edit

Emily is creative, unapologetic and marches to the beat of her own drum. She has her own unique style, but over the years she's accumulated pieces in her closet that hang in her closet unworn. She purchased them because they were trendy and she felt as though she "had to have them", but they end up being a constant reminder of how much money she wasted. What she really wants is someone to come over and tell her what she should keep and what needs to be thrown away. Eliminating the superfluous pieces will allow her to hone-in on what she loves wearing and give her more opportunity to perfect her style. 

The Emily wardrobe edit includes:

 

FREE introductory phone call

Consultation over the phone or in person

Pre-session worksheet outlining your lifestyle and your ideal wardrobe

You and I spend some quality time inside your closet. We pinpoint your unique style, and take out the items that don't suit you. I tell you what should stay and what should go, and I offer my suggestions on what to sell or donate.

I share some useful tips on closet organization so getting dressed is quicker, efficient, and more enjoyable for you.

Set of matching hangers so your entire closet looks and feels cleaner and more organized

Personalized lookbook made with photos from our session, along with photos of outfit combinations that we made - just in case you forget!

LOLA, full makeover

Lola is a passionate and feminine woman. She had a successful career as a doctor, but has since retired. With all five children out of the house, she's able to travel with her husband, explore more of her interests and socialize with her friends. Along with her leisurely travel, she and her husband oversee world-wide medical missionary work, which takes her all around the world to remote villages and underprivileged countries. When she isn't traveling, she is a member of several organizations that keep her schedule busy. She is passionate about philanthropy, and wants to use the resources she was given to help others and affect positive change. Lola often hosts several benefits, galas and social gatherings each year. She likes fashion and enjoys getting dressed for events, but she never defined her own style and doesn't know what looks best on her. She decided to treat herself to a head-to-toe makeover to completely update her wardrobe, hair, and makeup regimen through a luxurious styling session to achieve her new look.
