Depending on the type of session Desirée photographs sessions both on location and in the studio. Modern Beauty sessions take place only in the studio.

We have two different consultations at our studio. In an initial consultation, you will come into the studio to meet with Desirée and discuss the Photography by Desirée experience and we will select the session best suited to bring your vision to life. In a vision and style consultation we will go over all of the details to make your portrait session a success. You will bring in all of our outfits and we will discuss your clothing, style as well as hair and make-up.

Session fees cover initial consult, photo session, editing and retouching of your images and reveal and ordering appointment. Session fees do not include any photographs or digital files

Session fees are paid in full at the time of booking to reserve your time at the studio and are non-refundable.

A minimum investment  is the minimum amount a client must purchase from their session. This can be filled from any of our collections or a la cart items. Since the amount of time, outfits, and locations can vary according to our client’s needs, we have a variety of sessions for you to choose from. Sessions have different minimum investments in order to allocate our customer’s time and budget appropriately and in order for us to serve our client’s effectively.
