What do I wear?CLOTHES (or lack of clothes haha) I'll let you know what colour underwear to wear on the day. I will have other pieces of clothing and accessories for us to play with when you're there and we can work out what you feel comfortable in and what makes you feel fuego! We will do shots with just underwear and at the end the girls often choose to do some topless pics. You have absolutely no obligation to join in on this and even if you feel keen when you fill out the questionnaire, you can at any stage decide to sit these out. MAKE UP This is totally up to you. Come how you feel comfortable, if that's with make up, wear it. If you feel comfy without, come bare faced.
What if I book a spot and then are unable to make it?Due to the nature of the experience (food, goodie bags, my assistant etc), I'm unable to refund you if you're unable to attend UNLESS I'm able to find someone to fill your spot. I know there can be all sorts of situations that can arise despite your best efforts, so I will of course try my best to find someone to fill your spot, but if I'm unable to, I wont be able to refund your money. If I am able to find someone to take your spot and you've paid via my invoice (bank transfer or credit/debit card), I will refund your full amount minus $5AUD (to cover transaction fees) by bank transfer back to your nominated account. If I am able to find someone to take your spot and you have paid in full via the Laybuy payment plan, you will be refunded fully. If you paid using Laybuy, and still have future payments due - your future payments will be cancelled, and you will be refunded any amount already paid.
What happens if there's wet weather on our photoshoot day?Days out from the shoot I will be in touch if the forecast is looking dicey. If there is a bit of rain but not storming, the shoot will still go ahead. A marquee will be set up to take shelter under in between shots. If the weather looks like it might storm, the shoot will be reschedule and I will try my best to pick a new date that suits everyone. However, if the rescheduled date wont work for you, I will refund your payment. If you have paid in full via the Laybuy payment plan, you will be refunded fully. If you paid using Laybuy, and still have future payments due - your future payments will be cancelled, and you will be refunded any amount already paid.
What do I bring on the day?- Bring the colour underwear specified in my message - A towel - Spare underwear for changing into after the shoot (if you want) PROVIDED - Accessories - Food - Drinks - Mat to sit on - Sunscreen & Insect Repellant. But you might want to bring your own if you have sensitive skin.
Can I bring my baby/kiddo along?Depending on where we will be shooting, most likely yes! My group shoots always get really amazing women along that are warm, friendly and have huge hearts. Many are often mamas so we know the drill! This will depend on age and location. If your babe is not mobile, then absolutely yes, as they wont be able to crawl, walk or run into danger. If you have an older child that you feel confident having them around water, then heck yes. If you have a kiddo that is of the age that might end up in precarious situation in the water or up a tree, it might not be ideal. Let me know if you plan on bringing a babe or kiddo along and we can figure out if the location will be suitable for them.
Do I need to be super confident to do the shoot?Not at all. Let's be real, most women are their own worst critique. So you wont be alone in having hang ups. My shoots usually have a mixture of confidence levels and it's pretty wicked because everyone ends up cheering each other on. There's absolutely no pressure to get topless. If you decide that's not for you, that's no problem at all. I have a PDF you can check out called the Awkward Girls' Guide to Photoshoots, which you can get for free by subscribing on my website (don't worry, I rarely send out emails!). I also have a bunch of tricks for if you're feeling unsure at the beginning of the shoot, to ease you into it. You can always convince a friend to join you and book a spot. It's really fun having friends and I make sure to get a few shots of friend groups as well.
When is the next Starseeds Session?I'm always hanging out for the next one too, so I often have one coming up every few months. The best way to find out about upcoming shoots is to subscribe on my website and or follow my instagram page www.instagram.com/gennashawphotography for updates on upcoming sessions.
