Lets Talk Social Media and Image Sharing.
I know you have probably seen a lot of my work online or on social media, but it is so important for me to stress that all of our sessions are 100% private. The only person present at your shoot is myself and sometimes our amazing Studio Manager will be there too.
Your Boudoir Portraits are NEVER shared anywhere without your permission. All the portraits on my website are signed and released with full permission to share. There’s is NEVER any requirement to share images in order to have a boudoir session with me. I fully respect your privacy and will never post your portraits unless you agree to sign a model release to do so.
Do you offer Professional Retouching?
Yes, ofcourse! Professional retouching is included with every session. I am happy to remove any blemishes and stretchmarks, in addition to bruises you may have on the day of your session.
On the day of your preview you will see a collection of proofs. These images will be developed but not fully edited. I choose to show your portraits to you this way so that you can see how amazing you actually look straight out of camera. You can then tell me if you would like any bruises or stretchmarks removed. Each portrait that you choose will then have a complete edit including a light airbrushing of your skin to soften any hard lines or remove any chill bumps.
Please note: I do not do extensive “body reshaping” as part of my retouching, but I work with clients to find the most flattering poses for their shape during their session, which makes this unnecessary.
Are the women on your website paid models?
No, but they ALL could be! Arent they gorgeous?!
The women on my website are real women just like you who went through professional styling, makeup and hair. We put together the perfect wardrobes and they trusted us to create breathtakingly beautiful portraits. We would LOVE do the same for you.
My clients range from early 20s through 60s with every body type possible.
Are makeup and hair included? Can I just do my own?
Every session includes Professional makeup and hair styling. Getting your makeup and hair done sets the tone for your session. It gives you time to relax, get to know us better and feel pampered. But more importantly, having a professional do your makeup means they know how to do camera-ready makeup that will truly make you feel and look Beautiful!
They know the secrets and wonderful ways to take your natural beauty and highlight it. Honestly, you will want to have a professional makeup artist go with you everywhere once you experience this luxury!
If you have a very specific hair style in mind, or simply want to come with your hair fully styled, that is perfectly fine.
I feel like I have A LOT of makeup on. Am I going to look like myself?
Don’t worry! It looks like a lot of makeup in person but it will look just right in-camera. Remember that some of the makeup naturally “falls away” in the natural light, and in the processing and retouching of your images.
However, we want you to be happy, so speak up if you want to make an adjustment. The makeup artist is happy to talk with you about making any adjustments to the makeup after you’ve had some time to get used to it.
How long will the session take?
Makeup and hair take an hour and a half on average. The photographic session also takes 45 minutes to an hour. Your entire session will last 2-3 hrs from start to finish.
What should I bring to the session?
We will plan your entire session during your Boudoir Consultation with me. We will talk about all the wardrobes that suit your body type best and accessories to pair with them.
In general here are some things you’ll want to bring:
– 3 to 4 outfit changes like a mix of lingerie, special items (like a favorite shirt of his or jersey) and any other options you’d like
– Accessories – jewelry and other items like a hat, veil etc.
– Sexy shoes!
Do I bring my own clothes? Do you have some I can use?
You will need to bring your own outfits. I have a few special options you are welcome to use but it’s important that the items you pick fit you just right, so we know what you bring will fit best!
