What is your photography style?
My work is feminine, timeless and insightful, creating beautiful pieces of art.
I stand for women’s rounded self, powerful, dramatic and natural, it all deserves to be seen.
Who will photograph my sessions?
All photo sessions are photographed by me, Cristina Stoian, female photographer;
Where does the shoot take place?
Shoots are located at my studio. I have created an environment that is the most relaxing and warm for you to enjoy your photo shoot. Big studios and huge lights can be overwhelming and clearly does not create intimacy between photographer and client.
Are the women on your website models?
No, all the women on my website are clients and most of them have never had shoots before.
How long does a session last?
The Glamour Experience includes hair and makeup and will last 4 hours in total.
Who can I bring along at the photoshoot?
If you would like to share the experience with your mum, daughter, sister, friend, you are welcome to invite them into the shoot. Make it a girls day out!
What will I gain from having a Glamour Portrait Session?
Lots of women are nervous when they first speak to me about having their portraits taken. Afterwards, I hear them saying “That is one of the best things I have ever done for myself”. Some, have portrait sessions for the man in their lives, others have them just for themselves… As women, we are so hard on ourselves and are often our own harshest critics. The self-confidence and self-esteem that can be gained from a portrait shoot are amazing.
One of my favourite parts of a Glamour session is speaking to clients after they have viewed their images when they realise; actually, yes, they are beautiful, powerful, even sexy. “l feel beautiful, powerful, renewed, empowered. It changed the way I see myself. Re-connecting with my Big Self, powerful, sexy, unstoppable. Amazing!” Blanca Vergara
How long should I book before my shoot?
If you want to give the folio box or prints as a gift, I would recommend booking 2 weeks in advance. It takes me 30 days to invite you to the reveal wall, where you will pick your prints.
Do you retouch the images?
Yes, all your images are retouched, spots and blemishes are removed unless stated otherwise.
Do you offer hair styling and make-up?
Yes, definitely, I work with a wonderful, talented team of hair and make-up artists, which I trust with my image and yours.
What if I am not happy with my figure?
A question asked by so many women. “I am not ready yet. I need to lose 25 kilos before my session.” If we all waited until we lost weight and looked perfect we could be waiting a long time..everyone has perfections and imperfections that is what makes us unique. My job as a Portrait Photographer is to emphasise your many positives and to minimise any areas you may feel self-conscious about, through smart posing and direction.
What do I bring to the session?
I normally suggest about 4-5 outfits that work for you. All this is discussed in the consultation session.
How will I know how to pose?
I will work with you and show you the poses that will work for you and your body. I will direct your poses and you don’t need to have any prior experience.
When do I pick up my photos?
15 days after your shoot there will be a face-to-face session at my studio, I call the “Reveal”, where you will get to pick your printed and matted photos. How many you buy, it’s up to you.
You can call me to discuss packages and any questions or queries about the shoot in more detail.
