what do I need to do after I book?

ship your products and share what you want to create. not sure what shots you need? soona has packs that make it SUPER easy for you. check them out here!

building your shoot

can I purchase more assets than what is included in the pack?

yes! each additional photo is $39 and video clip $93.

what’s the difference between packs and the standard a la carte soona shoot?

I'M SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND THIS SOLUTION
I had my first shoot at soona a few weeks ago and really loved the experience! It was so easy to get my products to their studio. Once received, my appointment was booked right away and it was so awesome to be involved during the shoot to provide feedback. I'm so happy to have found this solution for photography and highly recommend!
