What should I Wear?
Whatever makes you feel comfortable and beautiful!
You may already have some great options in your closet such as a bodysuit, high waist panties, a robe, or an over sized sweater.
Some women opt to wear casual or sexy lingerie, while others choose to bare it all.
A simple bed sheet will make for beautiful implied images. Or you can chose to include artistic nudes in your session. It's completely up to you.
In a two hour session we will usually have time for 3 outfits + implied or artistic nudes.
Once you are booked you will receive a complete wardrobe planning guide as well as preparation and shopping recommendations to help you plan for your session. You can always call or email me if you need suggestions or advice on what to wear.
Can I bring a friend?
I understand that having pictures taken in lingerie (or less) will make most women nervous.
Due to the intimate nature of a boudoir session I prefer, however, to keep each session limited to just you and me.
I find that having other people present is distracting, can actually make you more nervous and therefore negatively affect both the experience and the quality of the final images.
If you insist on having a friend with you, a request must be made in advance so that I can arrange for them to be present only while you are in hair and makeup.
Once the session is underway I do not allow anyone else to be present in the studio.
I'm not a model. How will I know how to pose?
Don't worry, I'll give you complete posing direction. I'll demonstrate and explain each pose before I ask you to try it.
It's my job to pose and guide you every step of the way so that you look and feel amazing!
When will my images be ready?
You'll get to first see your beautiful images 1-2 weeks after the session at your private reveal and ordering appointment at my studio.
First, we'll view a custom slideshow of your best images created just for you!
Then we'll review each individual image so that you can finalize your choices and decide how you would like to have your images displayed.
Package collections include prints, luxury albums and fully retouched digitals.
Your finished order will be ready approximately 4 weeks after your reveal/ordering appointment.
If you need your images by a certain date, please let me know in advance and I'll do my best to accommodate your request.
Will you Photoshop my images?
All images are edited in-house by yours truly. To ensure quality, consistency and privacy, the editing of your images is not outsourced.
Standard retouching includes skin smoothing and editing of things like minor blemishes, skin flaws, under eye circles and fly away hairs. My usual rule is that if it's permanent, it stays unless you request it removed.
Standard skin smoothing will diminish the appearance of scars and stretch marks but if you would like them completely removed this will be addressed at your reveal/ordering appointment.
I use posing, angles and lighting to capture your individual beauty and to create images that you will love.
I do not believe in morphing your body into someone who you are not.
You are beautiful as you are.
What about privacy? Will my images be shared online?
All of the women that you see featured on my website and social media have kindly given me written consent to use their images.
Some clients provide consent for specific images or for only anonymous ones to be used. Others do not wish any of their images to be shared. I fully respect your decision and privacy.
