I don't know what to wear!
Once you book your shoot we send you a very detailed guide of what to bring and how to prepare. If you are still stressing, we are happy to meet with you or even shop for you. I could spend an entire hour shooting a client with no other wardrobe than the bed sheets and completely rock it out. The focus of your session truly is on you, not your wardrobe, so you don't have to over think it. You'll get a lot of guidance once you book and we are happy to answer all of the questions.
Do you provide outfits? Or do I bring mine?
Yes and yes! Our boudoir dressing room is packed full with tons of cute nighties, chemises, robes, corsets/bustiers in sizes S-4XL, vintage clothing, accessories, and jewelry that you are welcome to use if you want. In addition, I encourage you to bring your own lingerie and wardrobe as well. This is great opportunity to go shopping right? We don’t have bra and panty sets so definitely bring a minimum of 1-2 sets with you. Once you book I will send you a very complete guide of what to bring and tips on how to dress your body.
I have cellulite/stretch marks/acne. Can you get rid of that?
The removal of acne, blemishes, bruises, scratches, stretchmarks, veins and cellulite is part of our standard retouching process and included in the cost of your purchase. There may be an extra charge for extreme tan lines and tattoo removals.
I have ... no butt/love handles/had a baby/no boobs/huge boobs/plus size/no curves/thelistgoeson...
I have photographed women from size 0 to size 30 and everything in between. Everyone has their thing - a dimple, they hate their nose, they don't have a butt, their boobs are too big, jiggly arms, nobby knees. I have heard it all. Everyone has something it seems. I assure you we will make your best features shine and give those perceived flaws the love and attention they deserve too. You are perfect and you are going to look sexy AF in your photos. Promise.
I don't know how to be sexy.
Yes you do. (YES, you DO! STOP IT) You just need a little coaxing. I will coach you into each pose from hand and leg placement, to where to look, to what to do with your face. And most often those that think they aren't sexy, KILL IT, once they get comfortable and realize how much fun they are having.
Do you only shoot models?
See all the people on our site? They are regular people. Real clients, just like you.
I do not want to be displayed on your web site. Will my privacy be assured?
I take your privacy very seriously. I often work with school teachers, public figures, and professionals so I understand the importance of privacy. Everyone displayed on my website/blog/advertising were excited to give me written permission to do so.
How far in advance should I book my session?
I recommend that women have their shoot date scheduled for about 2 months prior to needing the finished product in-hand. I tend to book up very quickly and relatively far in advance. It's never to early to get on my schedule.
Do you do evening or weekend sessions?
I book sessions Monday - Thursday and occasionally on Fridays during the day in order to use the daylight. Otherwise, typically, no evenings or weekends. I photographed weddings for several years and have been able to refocus to boudoir and enjoy my weekends again. That being said, I have four very active kids and I travel nearly every weekend. Also, because of weddings, stylists are very hard to come by on Saturdays. **If you absolutely, positively could never ever make a weekday, email me and we can chat. I will make rare exceptions occasionally based on availability and reasoning.
