Do you Travel?
Yes I do! I solely charge the common travel expense: car rental, flights, hotel and my traveling time. I do offer special offers for certain regions. This all varies! If you have a cool location in mind, reach out!
How long have you been doing this?
I started in 2019. However, I have experience in other settings that has helped me mold an understanding and level of comfortability in posing and cultivating an environment to create your story.
How many photos do we get?
You are promised a minimum of 25. Usually I deliver more than that, but in the event where we were short on time or lighting, etc., 25 images are guaranteed.
How do we get our photos?
Your photos will be uploaded to a digital delivery system. You will get an email and a download code and access code to your gallery. Images are all downloadable digitally and print rights are given so you can print through whoever you'd prefer.
Do you retouch photos?
Each photo you get back from me is edited. My editing policy is that I remove "today's problems" such as bruises, scratches, and acne - but I do NOT remove anything that is permanently part of you, such as stretch marks, birth marks, and scars. They tell your story and will be with you forever, and I believe they should be documented that way! Your skin is slightly brushed over during my editing process, but I do not do any heavy retouching or body altering.
Whats your turn around time?
Up to 2 weeks. The busy peak season for me starts in June and goes through the end of November. Please be understanding and patient during this season. Your gallery will still be delivered within the allocated time frame from your shoot (doesn't include my weekends). If you would like your gallery edited sooner than the promised time, there is a rush editing fee of $300.
How do we book you?
A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to lock in your date. I block off that whole day just in case we want to shoot sooner or later.
If you need a payment plan, I do offer that as well. The 50% retainer must be made first and after that, the payment plan will take effect.
Once the retainer is made, I send out a calendar invite, my custom boudoir guide, and lots of details on how to prepare for the shoot. If there is a specific scenery in mind, I do research on locations.
Can you help us with planning?
Absolutely! You're paying for a luxury service and it would unfair if I had my clients doing all the work. That's not how I conduct my business.
I collect as much information and what you (and your significant loved one) are envisioning and see what we can create.
How far out do you book?
I recommend scheduling 2-3 months before you need your photos back. If your wedding is in October, I'd recommend scheduling it for August.
Please mention the deadline in the inquiry form so I can send you my availability.
What should we wear?
I have a guide that I will share after you book. This guide will guide you through preparing for your session, what to shop for, what to bring, etc.
Is hair and makeup included?
Hair and makeup are included in select packages. I do provide assistance with selecting a professional hair and makeup artist. Hair and makeup are done in my private studio.
I don't want my photos shared on social media, is that okay?
Absolutely! When you book a session with me, it is 100% optional to allow me to share your images. I have different privacy levels you can choose from on my contract (full release, anonymous release, or private) and you can change your mind at any time. As much as I would LOVE to share your images, I value your privacy. Your session is about YOU, not about me.
Can I bring someone with me to the shoot?
While it might sound like fun, I typically recommend that you come alone that's if they are not going to be in the shoot. I PROMISE I will hype you up just as good as your bestie would. It can be awkward and distracting to bring someone along, so to be sure we get the best outcome for your photos, please come alone!
Are you comfortable with nude sessions?
I LOVE IT WHEN PEOPLE GET NAKEY!!! so HECK FUCKING YES! I have a handful of clients that have booked only nude sessions and those are always so much fun!
How do you feel about nude couples?
It doesn't bother me at all. There has been such a stigam when it comes to boudoir and nudes and now couples that it's not socially acceptable. However, I don't see it that way. I see it as a way to build and strengthen your relationship and having fun! Life is too short to worry about what other people think! 😉
ok! what about erections? Boners?
They do not bother me at all. It's natural. It's bound to happen. Kudos if can control it but I understand that given the environment, it's going to happen and it doesn't bother me.
Important Details to Consider
COMMUNICATION IS KEY.
For these sessions, I communicate as clearly as possible for many reasons. The main one is to ensure that we are both comfortable and feel safe during this session. I am not the type of photographer who needs to push you completely out of your comfort zone to get that shot.
In addition, I cut the bullshit. That's just me as a person, but I want to ensure that we are both compatible and understanding of each other expectations. I want YOU to succeed and feel good and confidently walk away from this session knowing that everything was put on the table.
MY LEVEL OF COMFORTABILITY
I am someone that has pretty much seen it all when it comes to boudoir. Though I don't share all of the images on my website or social media, this will show when it comes down to the day of our session. I am not a new and upcoming photographer. I am a seasoned and experienced photographer.
If you look at an amateur photograph next to a professional couples boudoir shot photo, you can immediately notice a difference. Amateur photos are often poorly composed.
Before booking couples boudoir photography, you should understand more about this photographic style of producing couples photos. Some people have misconceptions about couples boudoir and erotic boudoir in general.
You should also be aware that couples boudoir is not porn. We do not film or shoot sex or intercourse. The photos that we take are classy, stylish, and sensual. They are intimate photos, but you and your partner are not fully nude or engaged in actual or simulated sex acts.
The quality and atmosphere of the couple's photos create a striking visual. The resulting artwork is likely to be something that you and your partner treasure for a lifetime.
