Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a compiled list of questions we get asked on a regular basis. Check and see if we can answer your questions here, or if you seek further answers email us at or through our Contact tab! 

What is Positively Glittered? 

Positively Glittered is all about self love, body positivity and celebrating our differences. We welcome people of all ethnicities, sexualities, gender identities and sizes. Our aim is to help people feel good in their bodies and see their own beauty, and to lift up other women too. Our use of the word 'woman' includes anyone who identifies as such, and we are working on a project that involves men too. If you would like us to come to you, or if you'd like to get involved in any way please contact us

Doesn't it get... everywhere? 

You betcha! It gets in every nook and cranny of your person and home. Yes, even there. Finding small spots of glitter months later is such a beautiful reminder of the day spent frolicking with empowered women! 

What type of glitter do you use?

We use a homemade recipe of craft glitter and aloe. It has taken a lot of trial

and error to get to the stage we are at now with understanding the best ratio to get the amazing sparkle! We are currently looking into using biodegradable glitter for our upcoming shoots as we want to make our glittery practice environmentally friendly. For the moment, we still try to dispose of the glitter ethically and responsibly. 

What is the difference between a public shoot and a private shoot?

A public shoot is when we secure a location and date, we release a call-out for anyone wishing to be involved! While we do post group photos of the public shoots on our social media, participants have the option to opt out of having their individual photos posted online. Private shoots are specifically requested bookings that are not open to public participation. You can see the pricing available for private shoots in the pricing section.

I want to participate but I don’t want my individual photos shared online!

You are more than welcome to take part in the day and opt out of having your individual photos shared online. Your privacy is very important to us. We do post group photos of the public shoots, and offer ‘concealed identity’ shoots where any group photos will have your face hidden.

Do you take private bookings?

Absolutely! Private bookings can range from small to large groups, couples, siblings, and maternity. There is no pressure to have any of your images shared online either. Send us a message through our contact page to enquire about a booking! You can see the pricing available for private shoots in the pricing section.

Why don’t you have more diversity?

We do not exclude by ethnicity, size, age, sexuality or ability. We include anyone who identifies as a woman and would like to join us. The marketing strategy we have used allows potential glitter babes to come to us after we put word out, so anyone who is interested is welcome to get involved! If you see that you aren't being represented, please join us. We'd love to have you along. 

Can you come to my city?

We are working very hard to get Positively Glittered on the road, particularly around Australia! Please let us know if you'd like us to come to your city. The more interest you show, the more likely we will come to you! 

Who is in charge?

B (@busty_diaries), Penny (@nipnipss) and Hannah (@roseanna.mae) are the organisers, chief location scouts, glitter hoarders and social media experts. (Note: expert is a term we use very loosely here). Check out the Team page to see more info on everyone involved!
