How the photography session goes? As an Award Winning photographer, Lucie directs her clients to achieve their best possible results. The session runs from 1 to 2 hours. Within 24hrs you will receive a link to your proofs. After you make your selections the turn-around on retouching is no later than 2-3 days. At this point, you will receive a download link to Hi-Res images that can be taken to a lab for printing.  Upon request for the headshot, Lucie can set up your 8×10 photos along with your name and do the resizing for online profiles free of charge.

Selecting Your Proofs: You can do this via your phone or computer. Click on “View Collection” and enter password that is provided. While viewing your looks make the appropriate number of selections based on your package. You can make your selections by clicking on the heart symbol located at the bottom right corner of each photo. If you decide to share your photos with friends, family or your agent, click on the appropriate symbol on the bottom right to execute that directive. For example, you can share through email, Facebook or Twitter among others. After your selections have been made, send an email at to notify Lucie that you have finalized your selections so that she may begin the editing process. This ends the selecting your proofs process. *NOTE: You have 48 hours to select your photographs. After 48 hours the link will expire.

8x10 Prints: It is crucial to get your prints done at a professional printing lab. *If you want to order professional prints of your final images request an estimate at

How many images will I get for the price of the session? That depends on the package that you choose.  You will receive a limited number of free retouched photos included in the original price. *You always have an option to choose extra looks (photographs) for and additional cost. 

Do you do the retouching? Yes! Retouching and edits are complimentary. The process continues to carry Lucie’s vision. She will enhance, brighten, and sharpen the images to achieve a signature colorful look.

NOTE: As indicated in the Lucie Aleks Photography policy…any 3rd party handling or retouching of her images is prohibited.  

Do you photograph in studio or with natural lighting? It is much more desirable to photograph at the outdoor locations with natural lighting. Outdoor locations give Lucie and her clients unlimited possibilities and allow the subject to feel natural, which creates an environment for their personality and character to shine through.

What clothing should I bring? Please come to the session ready. I recommend starting the session with a natural and clean style. Subtle changes in makeup and hair and/or a wardrobe change will help us to get different looks but stay true to your style.

Do you provide a hair and makeup artist? Yes! A hair and make-up artist is available and will satisfactorily take care of your needs. Please contact for details.

Can I bring an escort to the shoot? Of course.
