This isn't just about showing skin...

 

This is about rediscovering your beauty, making time for yourself, being pampered, and truly celebrating yourself. The women who choose to have their session with us come away from this experience with so much self confidence, worth and simply glowing and that's before they see their images. We work so hard from start to ensure you feel confident in your outfit choices, beautiful in your makeup, flattered in your poses and stunning straight out of the camera.

 
There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty

FAQ

I want my photos ready for a specific date. How far out should I book my session?
Please come in at least one month prior any deadlines if possible.

Can I bring or have another person with me?
Yes, absolutely. The key to session success is that you are comfortable and have fun. Bringing that friend that assists, cheers, and encourages is great. Don't bring that hyper critical friend that will distract and disrupt the flow.

Do you photograph couples?
Yes, I do photograph couples.  I love to capture that special connection between two people in love. Just to give you the heads up, if you want fun and sensual photos of you and your partner together, I'd be more than happy to photograph you. However, I do NOT take photographs of sexual nature.

Do you photograph nudes?
No

Do you photograph bachelorette parties or groups?
Yes, though not at the studio. These are typically held at a hotel that you've booked.

Would you travel to my location or a local hotel for my shoot?
No to personal residence, yes to hotels.

Do you photograph plus size women?
Yes, we do! 

Are hair and makeup included with a session?
We offer two levels of service. You can choose the Deluxe session which includes professional hair styling and makeup by the talented ladies at Allure Salon & Spa. This service is all part of the pampering and we can't encourage it enough! 

I want to keep my photos private. Is this possible?
Absolutely! Your privacy is very important to me.  All the ladies you see on my website gave me permission to share their photos. Unless you give me permission, we will NOT share your photos!

What happens the day of the session?
The day of the session you will either go straight to the salon or come in to the studio based on the session you chose, we will go over your outfits and everything you brought.  We will talk for a few minutes about your session, your preferences, and go over any questions or concerns you may have before your session. I want you to feel comfortable and ready for this awesome experience before you start. Once you are ready, your guided session will begin. You will be coached through EVERYTHING - posing, expressions, even how to move your hands and feet! It's my job to make you look fabulous and your job to relax, go with the flow and have FUN.

A few days after your session, you'll come back to the studio for your reveal. After you make your selections and purchase your package, your photos will go into production.

Do you provide wardrobe?
You must bring your own wardrobe. Lingerie is personal and intimate and we think it should not be shared among strangers. 

I have no idea how to pose for the camera; can you help?
Absolutely! Don’t worry about posing. That’s my job! From facial expressions to body posture, you will be guided down to your fingertips to look your best regardless of your body type. I wont ask you to “look” at me sexy. Instead, I will show you exactly how to accomplish that!

Can I bring you a list of poses I want to do during my shoot?
I'd rather you don't.  A photo is more than a pose. There are many factors that come together to make a photo the way it looks: location, lighting conditions, camera settings, equipment used, the subject's body, etc.  To replicate a photo is time consuming. I already have a "choreography" and work flow to photograph my clients with flattering poses that suit my creative style. By allowing me move along with my work flow I can also create a lot more variety and photos for you to choose from.

I don’t think I’m sexy or beautiful. How can you make me look or look beautiful and sexy?
It is normal to feel that way some insecurities about posing in lingerie. I've learned from leaders in the industry how to pose and photograph women to look their best.  In addition, you’ll be coached from your head down to your toes, including facial expressions, throughout your session. That being said, the final result it’s up to YOU.  No amount of coaching will work on a woman with extreme confidence issues and who constantly looks for the things they don’t like in their pictures.  When you come for your session, leave your inhibitions at the door, come in the right frame of mind, and get ready to have FUN and embrace your beautiful body just the way it is!

How do you edit the photos?
Photos are edited for color, contrast, composition, removal of temporary small blemishes that can be easily removed (like a small bruise or acne) and I will slightly soften your skin. 

How do I avoid showing parts of my body I don't like?
With your wardrobe!  For example, if you have a stomach full of stretch marks like most of our clients, and you don't want to see them in your photos, wear something that will hide them.  Please, do not expect me to pose you hiding your stomach all the time. It's not possible. Embrace your body the way it is and choose your wardrobe carefully. If you need help choosing wardrobe, I am only an email or phone call away!

There are plenty of other/cheaper photographers out there. Why should I choose you?
I am not a cheap photographer. However, I am a good value for your investment. I have yet to come across a dedicated boudoir photographer with the amount of experience, knowledge, and education I have, who can run a legal business with lower prices.  After all, I run a business. I am not wealthy by any means and my home is modest. Heck - I drive a 20yo truck! But I am a legal business with expenses. I've invested over 10 years of my life developing my skills and thousands of dollars in education so that my clients end up with quality professional products.  I am not a weekend warrior. This is my full-time job and only source of income and I want to be here for many more years to come. If you choose a photographer based on how much they charge, you will always find someone "cheaper". My clients book my services because they love my work, they like me as a person, they respect my business and experience, and they appreciate a good value. ;-)

What are your studio hours?
Sessions are held Tuesday through Saturday. Sessions can take place generally in the early afternoon depending on the availability of you, me and the salon.

(After booking we'll provide a full outfit consultation)

A bra/panty set
A bralette/panty set (These are very popular now!)
Teddy
Bodysuit (flattering for all bodies!)
Corset/Garter/Stockings
Tank top and undies (perfect for casual gals)
Sweater/tube socks (perfect for casual gals)
Your guy's work shirt and/or tie
Favorite team's jersey and matching undies (preferable a female size jersey that is fitted)

ACCESSORIES:

Bridal Accessories: bridal lingerie, garter, wedding shoes, veil.
Jewelry – necklaces, rings and bracelets.
Shoes –  High-heels radiate sensuality.  High heels make your legs look longer, accentuates your calves by changing the angle of the foot with your lower leg and the look sexy! When shopping for heels – Platform stilettos always look BEST.  Avoid, sandals, “office” heels and open toes if you are wearing stockings.

WHAT TO AVOID

Avoid anything that looks like a Halloween costume.
Make sure you wear the right bra/panty size. If it looks a little tight for you, it will look really tight in photos. The same applies to wardrobe that it’s too big.
You should LOVE the way your body looks in your wardrobe. If you are not sure about it, don’t buy it.
Avoid prints if all possible.
Avoid baggy teddies and the ones that look like an apron. They don’t photograph well.
Do NOT go shopping last minute! Almost every gal we talk to that waits last-minute to find something to wear end up with the wrong type of outfit they don’t love. Go shopping as soon as you book your session.
