photo shoot with a male model

I'm a photographer and I am planning a very small photo shoot. It will just be me and one male model. The model is interested in doing some gender bending type looks, so it might be awesome to use some of the props you have! Thank you so much in advance, the space looks amazing....

photo shoot for an artist

I work for a music site and we'll be using the space to shoot an artist. The crew will be small -- around 5-6 people total including talent. Think your space will work well for what we'll need it for.

space to prep hair/makeup for shoot

This Monday we're shooting outdoors and I thought your place could be great for us to prep hair/makeup and clothes before we hit the road. And maybe do a few shots on the property if our photographer is vibing it. Could you let me know if this would be possible?

couple mini-session photo shoot

I am very interested in your space for valentine mini session photo shoots. I think it'd work perfectly with that ground level space with such pretty natural light. My one question to you would be if I'm allowed to move the furniture around? I'm hoping to create a simple backdrop against a plain white wall in the front of the space. Are you OK with simple scotch tape to hold up something simple like a heart garland? Also I'd bring some food in - probably a couple snacks and drinks (no alcohol) that is OK correct? Thanks so much for your help!!
