See yourself in a new perspective 2017-01-03T20:41:25+00:00

These photos can show you just how beautiful you are! You get to see yourself the way your husband sees you. Get your hair and makeup done, put on some lingerie, and enjoy the day. You are a beautiful woman, so rock it with a boudoir session!

Get in touch with your sexy side 2017-01-03T20:38:18+00:00

One of the biggest concerns I hear from clients before a boudoir session is that they don’t know how to “look sexy.” To this I say nonsense! Everyone has their own way of being sexy and with my posing and subtle guidance people find it comes much easier than they may think. You’ll be amazed at just how sexy you can be!

It’s a great way to celebrate a milestone 2017-01-03T20:37:19+00:00

Have an anniversary coming up or just scored a well-deserved promotion? Why not get this time in your life documented in a gratifying way? Not only will you have gorgeous portraits of yourself, but when you look at them you’ll remember how amazing this time in your life was! Celebrate it!

It will empower you 2017-01-03T20:34:30+00:00

Getting treated like a celebrity for a few hours is great therapy for anyone! But wait until you get to see the photographs for the first time. You will be blown away. You will see how gorgeous you really are and it will put a little pep in your step!

Make it a girl’s day out 2017-01-03T20:33:47+00:00

Need a little confidence boost to come in for a session? Make it a girl’s day out! Choose a few of your BFF’s and do a session together! Most boudoir photographers offer special girl’s day out collections that include a day of pampering, food, wine, and each lady getting her time in front of the camera!

You get to go shopping 2017-01-03T20:32:43+00:00

Women tend to put others first in their lives a lot of the time. Take some time out for yourself and go shopping for yourself! I work with my clients to make sure they get the best fitting lingerie for their bodies. The best part? All of the great pieces you purchase can make other appearances in more intimate settings!

It makes a great gift for you 2017-01-03T20:29:21+00:00

Show off your beauty and give yourself an esteem boost with photographs that you can treasure. Do it for yourself. Be pampered. Indulge. Love every minute!

It makes a great gift for your significant other 2017-01-03T20:28:21+00:00

Imagine the look on their face when you surprise them with a little black  album filled with sensuous pictures of the one they loves! They already think you’re beautiful on your worst hair days and in your yoga pants, so show them how smoking hot you are in classy lingerie and professional makeup! It may be a side he’s never seen!

You’ll look amazing 2017-01-03T20:27:27+00:00

Professional hair and makeup, photographer and retouching equals some of the best portraits of yourself that you will ever see. I often tell my clients to schedule a night out after getting their portraits done, because they will look and feel amazing!

Why would I want to book a boudoir session? 2017-01-22T12:31:26+00:00

You want to look and feel fantastic, sexy, racy,  pretty or glamorous.  It’s a present for yourself or your significant other.  You are getting married and want to give him something he will never forget.  You have accomplished a goal you set out to do or you just simply might want some hot pictures of yourself!

Who will be photographing my session? 2017-01-03T20:27:09+00:00

All sessions are photographed and edited by myself.  There will be no one else present in the shooting area and your photos will only be reviewed by me.  If you bring a chaperone, there will be a place they can sit, relax and wait for our session to complete.  I find with fewer distractions, we can focus on capturing all of your beautiful curves.

What does my session include? 2017-01-22T12:36:49+00:00

It depends on what package you choose to go with.  Please visit our investment page to find a package that suits your needs.  Regardless your selection, you will have amazing images that you will be proud of for years to come.

Are my photos retouched? 2017-01-22T12:39:58+00:00

All of your final images will be retouched and color corrected.  While we are shooting, we will discuss anything you my want left, or removed.  I generally use the rule that if it will be gone in 2 weeks, I will buff it out.  If you have a mole or scar you want removed please let me know when placing your order.  

I will post a few in your gallery that are fully retouched so you can know what to expect for a finished product.   The rest are just proofs.

Tan lines and tattoo removal (unless it’s tiny) are not included and can be fixed at an additional cost.

How long until I receive my images? 2017-01-22T12:41:44+00:00

Your proofs will be in your own private gallery 1-2 days after your session.  Once you place your order your prints and most albums will be ready 2-3 weeks from your order date.  Some albums may take longer depending on which one you go with.  I will let you know.

What if I am not as skinny as I want to be? 2017-01-22T12:48:36+00:00

Do not worry!  It is my job to emphasize your assets and minimize the parts you may not be so fond of.  I have great skill with lighting and posing so you are going to look fantastic no matter what.   I believe everyone should feel comfortable in the skin they’re in.

I am not sure how I am supposed to pose? 2017-01-22T12:53:54+00:00

It’s natural to be nervous so I start with some really simple shots then once we get going the nervousness will disappear and you will have a lot of fun.  I have tons of ideas that will flatter your body so leave the thinking up to me.  Please, let me know prior to your session, if you have any specific ideas you want to try!

What should I wear? 2017-01-22T12:55:53+00:00

You can wear as much – or as little – as you like. 

Sexy heels and boots are a must.

Wear items that flatter you, make you feel sexy and hide those problem area’s that you worry about.  Be sure to try everything on before your session to make sure it fits and looks the way you want it to.

Do you supply clothing? 2017-01-22T13:05:07+00:00

I do not, although I have some accessories, such as fascinators, masks, hats etc. that you are more than welcome to use.

How many outfits should I bring? 2017-01-22T13:07:06+00:00

I would suggest 2 outfits per hour you book and make sure you try it all on before you arrive.  If you bring too much, it can be difficult and confusing to try and put your outfits together.   Remember texture like lace photographs really well.  You might also want to bring something a bit different like a sports jersey, button down shirt, tie, hat etc.  Use your imagination.

Should I get my hair and make-up done? 2017-01-22T13:09:40+00:00

I highly recommend getting your hair and make-up done.  It is important to use a professional as they know how to apply your make-up specifically for a photoshoot.  I can get you in touch with a fantastic hair and make-up artist that will bring out your features as well as get you pumped about your session with me before you even arrive.  It will not only make you feel and look great but turn it into a fun girly day that you deserve.  And… once we’re done shooting, you’re ready for a night on the town!

Do you shhot nudes? 2017-01-22T13:10:47+00:00

Absolutely.  Most sessions start off conservative, but once your comfortable we will shoot your curves.  This is not necessary, however – in my experience – most are happiest with the implied or nude shots as they are much more empowering.

How do I prepare? 2017-01-26T20:52:10+00:00

Get plenty of rest the night before.  Get a mani/pedi, moisturize and be sure to wear loose clothing to your session so you don’t have red marks on your skin.  Bring outfits that wrinkle on hangers and make sure you bring outfits that you feel sexy in. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as you feel fantastic in them!  Here is a more detailed document that will assist you.

You can download our preparation guide here.

Will you be posting my images on the internet? 2017-01-22T13:13:19+00:00

I would love to – however that choice is entirely up to you.  Your privacy is of utmost importance.  I ONLY display images that have been approved by my clients.  You will view your own pictures in a password protected gallery.  Only you and I know the password unless you choose to give it out to someone else.
