CARS + CAR OWNERS // All of our hot rods are owned by private owners who are graciously lending us their beauties for posing purposes. Car owners may or may not be ok with you touching, sitting in/on or leaning against their car. Please ASK before doing any of these things. Please be respectful and courteous to all car owners and remember to thank them for allowing you to work with their prized baby. All car owners have donated their time and beauties to help with the photo shoot, so I want to ensure they are shown and given the highest regard.
POSING // Rosey with Vision of Rose Photo will pose and direct you during your entire time in front of the camera. There's no need to worry or stress, we've got ya! Rosey has several years of experience with posing women of all body types to ensure the absolute best portraits are taken of each and every woman.

How to Prepare
THE WEEK BEFORE:
- Wax, bleach and/or shave any unwanted hair. This includes facial, arms, legs and private areas.
- Make a hair appointment if you wish to get your hair done before the shoot. (Do not try any new hair styles that you may regret during your portrait session.)
- Get your hair and/or roots touched up if needed.
- Make an appointment for a pedicure if your feet have visible dry skin and/or cracked skin.
- Follow up with stylist to ensure your hair appointment is scheduled and confirmed.
THREE DAYS BEFORE:
- Pluck away any hairs that may have grown back in.
- Give legs one final shave-over. Moisturize VERY well after.
- Begin moisture regimen on skin. Full body.
THE NIGHT BEFORE:
- Get PLENTY of rest! Any lack of sleep will show up in your portraits.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Remember to not eat ANYTHING that may make you feel gassy or bloated for your portraits.
THE MORNING OF:
- Wash and moisturize face.
- Moisturize ENTIRE body and bring additional lotion with you to session.
- Paint finger and toe nails the same color.
- Remove any and all jewelry to leave at home that does not match the theme of your session. VRP is not responsible for lost or stolen pieces you have brought with you.
- IMPORTANT - If you have chosen to have your hair styled for a cash donation, you MUST arrive with your hair already curled! From there, RCB's hair stylists will give you a pinup style. We will not have access to power supply for heated tools to curl hair, so it is a MUST that you arrive with your hair pre-curled for styling.
