FAQ >>

IS BABELY FOR ME?
Short answer: hell yes. Long answer: Whether you are 22 or 92, cis or trans, if you're black, white, brown or some beautiful shade in between- the Babely team has their arms wide open, ready to welcome you. The only exception is that due to the nature of the event, Babely is 21+. 

WHAT WILL THE PHOTO SESSION BE LIKE? 
My sessions are laid back, stylish, honest and fun. The goal here is to get real real quick, because in my humble opinion, I firmly believe that when you are your truest, most honest self - you are perfection. I plan to give you guidance, help with styling + posing and make this experience as east and comfortable as possible so you can forget the camera, have some fun and shine. 
You'll gave the option to choose from a boudoir, lifestyle or portrait session (or pitch an vision of your own!). Each participant will partake in an incredible make up session that highlights all your beauty, and then partake in a 30 minute photo session. You'll be supplied with an online gallery full of 25+ stunning, high-res images of your gorgeous self. 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR THE SHOOT?
Your outfit should be a reflection of you. 
Wear what makes you feel good/happy/sexy/fierce (aka your best self). 
When you feel like a million bucks, it' translates in a big way. Consider this day a seriously special occasion; an experience you'll fondly look back on for a long time. So why not let this be the reason (read: excuse) to go ahead and indulge a little- to buy that dress you've been dreaming about... to bust out the shoes you love but feel like you never have a reason to wear. 
On the flip side, if style isn't your thing and you're totally unsure what to wear, or just want a second option, feel free to reach out with any questions or bring lots of options! No need to fret. 

THIS SOUNDS AMAZING - I'M IN! HOW DO I BOOK? 
All we need is a 50% non-refundable retainer fee to secure your spot. The remaining 50% and a contract are to be submitted one month (or more) prior to the event. 

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
We do! If you are seriously interested and cost is the only deterrent, let us know. We are happy to create a payment plan that breaks things up in a more manageable way. Contact for more info. 

DO YOU CATER TO DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?
Our chef is more than happy to accommodate to your food allergies and dietary restrictions. Upon booking, we will send over a questionnaire. Just be sure to detail your needs beforehand and the rest will be covered.

WILL THERE BE A BABELY OUTSIDE OF SEATTLE?
That's the plan bbs! We believe Babely's mission is more relevant and necessary than ever before. Self-love, good food and lady-friendship never go out of style, so while we are in Seattle at the moment, we plan to expand nationally (and hell, maybe even internationally) in the near future. 
Get stoked!
