Frequently Asked Questions
      1. I’m really nervous! What should I do?

        Just know that almost every client that walks through the studio door is nervous at first. For most women a boudoir photo shoot is outside of their comfort zone and that’s totally awesome! It’s completely natural to be nervous and that is why I make sure every photo shoot includes hair and makeup. In addition to making you feel amazing the time you spend getting your hair and makeup done allows us to chat about your shoot and settle your nerves. Believe me, after just a few minutes of posing, you’ll be totally comfortable and having a wonderful time!

      2. Do you offer hair and makeup?

        Yes, I do! Every photo shoot includes hair and makeup. This photo shoot is about empowering you to feel confident and sexy and to me a huge part of that is feeling comfortable. A photo shoot is typically outside of your comfort zone and I want you to feel confident and comfortable before we get started. You’ll spend an hour getting pampered and enjoying yourself with refreshments while we chat about what made you decide to do a shoot and how we can create an amazing experience.

      3. What is included with the photo shoot?

        Our boudoir photo shoot packages start at $599. All of our packages include a pre-shoot consultation to discuss why you want to do a photo shoot, what the experience is like, suggestions for an amazing photo shoot and how I can create an unforgettable experience that is authentic to you. You also get wardrobe styling advice that includes suggestions for what to wear to your photo shoot and pairing what you bring with the items I have in the studio. The photo shoot comes with hair and makeup styling by professionally licensed stylists and 2 hours of shooting with me including an unlimited number of wardrobe changes. Afterwards is your same day in-person reveal and ordering session. I edit your photographs while you head downtown to eat lunch and when you return we’ll watch a slideshow of your photographs and I’ll help you choose your favorites. We offer a variety of stunning books, albums, wall art, digitals and more. You can see some of what I offer on the pricing and products page. Products are ready 2-4 weeks after your reveal.

      4. Do you offer payment plans?

        Yes, I do! I know that a boudoir photo shoot is an amazing investment in you and I want every woman to be able to afford it so I offer payment plans. I can break your balance into two to four payments (one due at the time of your same day reveal) and as soon as your balance is paid in full you’ll receive your products.

      5. How much do you edit the photographs?

        I want you to know that you are as beautiful in real-life as you are in your photographs. With that in mind I do not manipulate them but rather use lighting and coach you through posing to show off how amazing you are but that you don’t get a chance to see day to day just living your life. I’ll show you what others see when they take the time to truly see you and hopefully you will come to see the beauty that you hold inside and out.

      6. Do I have to have my photographs displayed on your website, social media, etc.?

        Absolutely not! It is totally up to you if you would like to sign a model release and have your story showcased on our blog, etc. A lot of women are empowered by their photo shoot and want other women to see how amazing the experience is for themselves so they offer to be a Muse – a creative visionary who leads the way for others. What you choose to do with your photographs is completely up to you and just like with your body – you are in control and able to decide.

      7. What should I wear to my boudoir photo shoot?

        Whatever makes you feel amazing and empowered and authentically you! This shoot is about empowering you to fall back in love with yourself and rediscover how amazing you are.
