Photography Sessions:


How to schedule your photo session:

There are two ways to schedule a photoshoot. 

You may stop by Bertie's Retro Boutique to place a $100 nonrefundable deposit and set up a date.  


You may pay your $100 nonrefundable deposit or whole session online and we will

contact you to set up an appointment.  

Our photoshoots usually take place Sunday and Monday all day.  But with our new instore studio we can accommodate our Corset Cuties package during the week.

Our all women crew will put you at ease with professional make up and hair.  We provide it all for you so no stress!  We will have a consultation before your session to talk about outfits, props and backdrops.


Before your photo session:

Please arrive no more than 10 min. prior to your shoot.

Arrive with a clean face and dry hair.

Wear black undergarments.

Many girls choose to get their nails manicured, hair colored & cut and waxed.

Bring anything you might  want to use for your shoot.

For pin up shoots please practice your vowels in front of a mirror.

Please feel free to contact us if needed.

Playing dress up is sometimes a bit nerve wrecking but we promise to walk you through every aspect of your shoot so you get the very best photos!


During your photo session:

Please remember this is suppose to be fun, we will walk you through it all.  Your session will start with professional make up and hair which usually takes 45 min. to an hour and half depending on package.  Then we are off to playing dress up behind the camera for one and half to 3 hours depending on package and location(s).

Bertie will show you the unedited photos as the session progresses. Then you may enjoy the rest of your day with professional vintage inspired make up and hair.

After your photo session:

Now that the relief is over and you are so happy with all the compliments you received from your vintage inspired make up and hair. Editing your beautiful photos can take from one to four weeks depending on time of year.   But we will let you know at time of session. If you need them by a specific date please let us  know and we will try our best to accommodate you.  We do not make you look like a different person, we simple enhance your beauty with vintage techniques.  This art form is with the make up, hair, outfits, poses and finally minimal editing.  You will receive your photos via a closed private link, once you choose your photos according to your package, your link will be unlocked and you may enjoy your digital downloads in the comfort of your own home.  You may also order custom items directly from your private site or we can do it all for you.  A USB with your edited images may be purchased separately which includes a release and the option to print your items at any professional outlet.
