BOUDOIR FAQs

(Frequently Asked Questions)

DO I HAVE TO POSE NUDE?

Absolutely not. Everyone's comfort level is different. Wear what you feel the best in.

I DON’T WANT MY PHOTOS TO BE SEEN BY ANYONE ONLINE. ARE YOU GOING TO PUT THEM ON YOUR WEBSITE OR SOCIAL MEDIA?

No. Your privacy is our #1 concern. I do in-person viewings so your images are not even stored online. The only times clients are featured on my website are when they have given me written consent to share their images.

I FEEL SELF-CONSCIOUS ABOUT MY BODY AND I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT BEFORE THE SESSION, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

I completely understand wanting to look your very best. If, however, you do not lose as much weight as planned, don’t worry! l strategically pose and photograph you in ways that will be flattering. Everyone, young and old, all shapes and sizes, can produce magazine quality photos. We work on bringing the best out in you!

I HAVE TUMMY ROLLS/CELLULITE/ACNE/ ETC., CAN YOU FIX THAT?

While we’re not big believers in editing you past the point of recognition, our team can take care of you.

SHOULD I GO TANNING BEFORE MY BOUDOIR SESSION?

I would recommend avoiding tan lines. These will show up in your photos! If you go for a spray tan be sure you don't wash your hands for 8+ hours or you'll have white hands and a tanned body.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY PHOTO SHOOT?

All of our sessions (exception Family & Head Shots) include a consultation to discuss your wardrobe and designing your session.

IS HAIR AND MAKEUP INCLUDED?

Yes! Professional hair and makeup are included in your session fee. Our hair and makeup artists are licensed cosmetologists and they know how to make you look and feel gorgeous. Plus, your time in the makeup chair will allow you to relax before you get in front of the camera. We have all shades of foundation and beautiful lashes to make your eyes pop. You might want to plan a night out after your photo shoot because you will look amazing.

COULD I BRING A FRIEND?

Of course! Celebrate your relationships! Do a double boudoir session with your best friend or partner. Just notify us ahead of time for scheduling purposes.

WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN?

We prefer that children not attend your boudoir session to eliminate distractions.

WILL WE BE ALONE DOING THE PHOTO SHOOT?

It really depends on your preference. Some clients bring along a friend to encourage them to really enjoy the experience. Other clients like to do sessions alone. No matter your preference, my assistant or the hair and makeup stylists will be available at all times during the shoot.

WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP AND RETOUCH MY IMAGES?

Yes! All of your images will be artistically edited and retouched! I can remove blemishes, wrinkles and do light body contouring for those areas you may not love. I do like for my portraits to remain realistic.

HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE MY PHOTOS FROM THE PHOTO SESSION?

Immediately following your photo shoot, you will pick your favorite photos to be edited. About 2 to 4 weeks following your photo session, we will schedule a Reveal of your edited images in our private studio. At that time, you will place your order for an album, wall décor or folio images. In cases where you reside a reasonably long distance, we can make arrangements to do your Reveal via Skype.

HOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKES?

Generally a shoot can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, depending on the makeup and styling choices.

 WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE MY IMAGES?

If for some reason you don’t like any of the images from your session, you’re not obligated to purchase. We’ll give you a gift voucher, so you can reschedule another photo shoot. Session fees are non-refundable.

HOW FAR IN AN ADVANCED DO I NEED TO BOOK?

We prefer to book anywhere between 1 to 3 months out, but give us a call or email to check our schedule.

CAN SOMEONE PURCHASE GIFT CERTIFICATES FOR A PHOTO SHOOT?

A gift certificate from us is a perfect gift for any person who is special to you. It is a celebration of who they are and everything that is wonderful about them.  Click here to purchase a gift certificate

HOW MUCH IS THIS GOING TO COST ME?

In order to reserve your date and time on our calendar, there is a $325 non-refundable session fee. When the session fee is paid in full, we will begin to design your Boudoir Experience.

LATE AND NO SHOW POLICY

Our time is valuable, and so is yours. If you’re late for an appointment, we will have to cut time from your shoot. This may be styling time or time with the photographer. We cannot allow tardiness to affect our other clients and their experience. If you forget and miss your shoot, we have a non-refundable session fee policy. In turn, we promise to honor our appointments and be on time.

REFUND POLICY

Once you purchase and receive digital images, there is a no exchange and no refund policy.

If you are still nervous about creating some fun and capturing happy moments, please contact us. We would love to address any concerns that you may have.
