Booking inquiries please include the following standard information and your location as subject. :)
Shoot type/genre
Preferred Date/time

Upon booking confirmation, I also require your full legal name and contact number. I understand the privacy and separation that some desire, and this information is for myself only.

All bookings (especially those at HelCat Studios) require a $50 non-refundable deposit. If I cancel (which doesn't happen) the deposit will be refunded.

[b]Cancellation Policy[/b]

If you cancel...because I will not... seriously I will not... then please be aware of the following cancellation fees and timeline. Which should be paid no later than 24 hours after our agreed appointment.

-7 days, there is a 25% fee of agreed shoot rate
-72 hours 50% of agreed shoot fee
-48 hours 100% fee of agreed shoot fee

If we are shooting on location, please have a back up indoor location just in case the weather is not on our side. Most times my schedule is stacked and reschedules are incredibly difficult.

[b] My prep [/b]

I will arrive with a clean, make-up free face, in clothes that will not mark or leave lines and my own water/snacks. I almost ALWAYS travel by car and will have wardrobe, a pair of black/nude heels, and full make-up kit to provide both glamour and creative/editorial style looks. If you are bringing on your own MUA please provide their portfolio links prior to the shoot. If you have a specific look or are interested in something more involved please feel free to send reference images my way so I can make sure I have everything I need to accomplish the look successfully and can visualize/strategize the execution of the look/concept =^.^=

Styling/MU/Hair are always considered part of the shoot booking time and [b]not[/b] the first shutter click. I know some photographers may disagree with this, but the presence or lack of make-up is an integral part of the final image. If you have a preference on whether my hair is curly or straight, please let me know ahead of time. It is a quick transition either way.

I give a lot of f*cks about this and have been doing it full time for over a decade (holy moly!!, so my goal is to have fun, creative and productive experiences. I have always felt this way, but the feeling has intensified since I have begun mentoring... I love watching photographers grow. Everyone has to start somewhere, so I book with all levels; folks that just bought their first DSLR to professional commercial photographers. If you are new, I am here to help :)

Body Modifications:
[b]No tattoos..... TATTOO FREEEEEEE[/b]
In my right ear only... Industrial, orbital, two anti-tragus and daith.

[b]Genres [/b]
Fine Art

Things I would love to shoot more of:
Beauty/Conceptual Make up
Underwater (Im PADI certified!)

I am VERY comfortable with my limitations and only shoot up to old school PlayBoy Magazine style nudes. Things I am not interested in shooting.... Please respect this...
Submissive Depictions
Tickle Fetish
Foot Fetish that involves animal harm (it's a thing trust me)
Anything Adult

I do not have these genres listed for a reason. I do not care that you shoot it, it is just not with in my comforts as a model so save us both some time and don't bother asking. Thanks!

In order to keep myself organized, I prefer to do all of my messaging on MM. If you prefer to communicate via email I have a designated account for this purpose, but communication needs to be initiated on the MM server.

Text and phone calls are only used for confirmations and figuring out some of the finer shoot details.

[i]Thanks for your understanding in advance.[/i]

[b]Trade for...[/b]


Not looking for any donations to my pledge based sites, I produce my own content.

Experienced couch surfer and house/pet sitter, I NEVER EVER trade shooting time for hosting or hotel rooms. Also, models did you know when you trade for hosting it's not a TFP any longer and the photographer doesn't actually owe you photos. Common misunderstanding I have noticed.

"Cat Hedlund came in town from NY area to do a shoot with me. I've been wanting to shoot with her for some time now since I've started to shoot models. It was everything I thought it would be. She is so amazing at what she does. I didn't have to give any direction at all. Once the flash went off on my camera she was in another pose without having to ask. Cat came fully prepared as well, she did her own makeup, her own hair, And she even bought clothes that she's designed herself. It was an amazing experience and I am so looking forward to working with her again on April 1, 2017." Read less
