FAQ

Retouching & Ordering Info

What about your retouching magic?


Say BUH-BYE to lumps & bumps and say HELLO to sexier curves! Kiss those extra pounds away! We will contour and shape your body (such as: shrinking the waist, flattening the tummy, thinning out arms & thighs, etc.). We also smooth and soften skin and remove stretch marks, cellulite, scarring and unwanted tattoos. We even have a trick to “plump” your breasts to give you a fuller, perkier look...and we always add glamorizing effects - like teeth and eye whitening. Think: Digital Botox & Digital Cellulite Eraser. We want to make sure that we aren't conforming to to society's ridiculous standard of beauty, so we don't "nip and tuck" extensively. We want to enhance your natural beauty, so we are careful to retouch your pictures just enough to be the most beautiful "real you". With that said, we want you to be happy with your images, so we can do more extensive contouring, if requested. You can trust our talent and vision to produce the same quality of photographs for you that you see on our website. We will pose, light and style you to flatter YOUR figure and celebrate who YOU are so that retouching is minimal - not mold and change you into what our ulture is teaching us ladies we need to be. The best part? We do NOT charge extra for this! Body shaping & retouching is INCLUDED with our products.




What if I want more or less retouching?


We want you to look like you, and we want you to be happy with your end result! When you place your order, you can let us know if you want something specific with your retouching - we can do as much or as little as you'd like. If you have concerns after viewing your proofs, you have the option to select one of your pictures for us to retouch. We will add to it to your portfolio as a complimentary “teaser” to see how we would retouch your pictures...and if you’d like anything done differently with the retouching, we’re happy to do our best to accommodate your requests! Having more or less retouching does not change your product cost. Contact us to order a teaser photograph.




Are products included?


We don't think it's a good idea to make you choose what products you'd like before you’ve even seen your pictures, so we do not include products (except for select Cherry on Top experiences). Once you've chosen your favorites, you can buy as little or much as you want. Order 1 picture or all of them...it's up to you! There is no time limit or minimum order. Our products are custom tailored to showcase your photographs in a beautiful way. We offer prints, digital images, calendars, books and more. With photos, descriptions and pricing for each product on our online store, placing your order is easy!




What types of products do you offer?


We offer prints, digital images, calendars, books and much more. You can view descriptions, photos and pricing for each product on our online store. Remember...body shaping & retouching is INCLUDED with our products. You can check out our product details & pricing by visiting our online store HERE.




Why don't you offer unretouched images in full resolution?


Your photographs tell a story. A bundle of unedited, unprocessed images isn't the the whole story, the right story or the finished story. Offering photographs that have not gone through post production, is like reading a book in its rough draft format - unedited and unformatted. Your images after post production are a finished work of art. Part of what sets Sugar & Spice Photography's photographs apart, is our high quality post production. Keeping up to date with the latest techniques used by commercial retouchers for the beauty and glamour industries; we perfect skin, hair, makeup, features, body shape, clothing...every detail in the image that can improve the quality is manipulated. Each image takes up to an hour to complete and is meticulously retouched. When pictures have our name "on it", we want it to be a reflection of the high end photographs and products that we are trying to create, so we only offer images that have not gone through post production, in a smaller format.




Is there a time limit on ordering?


There is NO TIME LIMIT on placing your order. You can order immediately or a couple years down the road. Some women choose to order a picture or two right away, and then surprise their sweetie throughout the year with more pictures! What a fun way to spice up special occasions...or to ignite a fire for no reason at all! We know that some of you would like to place a large order, but your budget just won’t allow it right now. So don't worry...you can order anytime! Remember...there is NO MINIMUM order.




How long will it take to get my order?


Currently, orders are taking about 4-5 weeks. However, since our products are custom tailored to be the perfect way to showcase your photographs, some product orders can take up to 6 weeks (from the date we receive your order & payment), so please plan accordingly. We do offer rush products that can be in your hands in less than 3 days...if you need this...check out the next Q&A.




Do you offer rush services?


If you don't have quite enough time before your special event, we recommend getting a SUGAR RUSH order as a sexy teaser gift for your honey (maybe with a kiss mark & the words: "more to come")...and you will have him begging for more! These rush orders are for 1-3 digital images that are delivered to you IN A FLASH...3 business days or less. Then, you can order more at any time...or a fun idea: show him your online portfolio & let him choose his favorites! Get a SUGAR RUSH order by clicking HERE. If you are in a hurry for your order, but you'd like more than what our SUGAR RUSH orders include, we also offer rush services on ANY order for an additional fee. Please contact us if you are interested.




What if I want a picture cropped or turned black & white?


If you would like a picture cropped, turned to black & white, sepia or would like a pop of color, etc., you can request that when you place your order. There is no additional charge for this.




Do you retouch my pictures before I order?


The retouching that we do takes up to an hour for EACH image, so other than some minor skin smoothing, color correction, cropping & tonal changes, etc., your images will NOT be retouched until you have placed an order.




How will my order be delivered?


Other than products with download options, all orders will be shipped in packaging that DOES NOT include the Sugar & Spice Photography name, logo or address. Additionally, you will receive an email that your order is on its way, so you can be on the lookout!




How do I place an order?


You can check out our product details, pricing & place your order by visiting our online store HERE. Or contact us, and we will be glad to help you with placing your order or answer questions about the status of your order.
