Frequently Asked Questions


Q.  I have no idea what to do in front of the camera. Will you tell me what to do?


A.  Yes! I know it’s not easy for most to be in front of the camera. Don’t worry, my dear. I will talk with you every step of the way. We will have music playing as we f l o w through poses and playing together to create beautiful images that you’ll love.





Q.  I need to lose 10+ pounds before I do this.


A.  Not really a question, but something I hear all the time. I promise you I can post you to make those 10 pounds disappear. It’s always my goal to pose you in the most flattering way. Also, this experience will help you to love yourself right now. You’re worth it.





Q.  Am I too old for boudoir?


A.  No. HECK NO! I believe boudoir is all about celebrating your beauty and exploring your femininity. It’s about feeling confident, sexy, and captivating.  It’s about feeling delicate. It’s about feeling strong. It’s about embracing and discovering you as a woman. You are not too old. You are worthy. Always.





Q.  Will you post my images or film online?


A.  Only if it’s okay with you.  I’ve worked with women who cannot have their images online because of their career, ministry or involvement in the community.  Boudoir is very intimate, and I happily respect any client’s wish to keep their images private.  All clients who give permission to share their images online will be asked to sign a release form. 





Q.  Is hair and makeup included?


A.  At this time, hair and makeup is not included.  Many of my clients prefer to do their own makeup or go completely natural. If you are looking to have your hair and makeup professionally done, I am happy to point you in the right direction.





Q.  Should I add on a boudoir film with my photo session?


A.  Yes.  So much yes.  You will want to watch your film to give yourself that extra boost of confidence and just feel damn good about yourself again.  If you’re getting married, the film can be something you give to your fiance the night of your honeymoon while you take those 732 bobby pins out of your hair.  ;)





Q.  Where will my session be done?  


A.  Your boudoir session will be done in your home or your favorite hotel or bed and breakfast.  If you’re not sure where you would like your session to take place, I will send you a list of beautiful spaces in the area!





Q.  What should I wear??


A.  How do you want to feel?  Most of my clients book me because of my style.  They want to feel elegant, feminine, and beautiful.  If you decide on lingerie - I would suggest anything sheer and/or with lace.  These materials photograph beautifully and are so feminine.  I would recommend wearing whatever makes you feel confident and beautiful.  That could be a chiffon romper, a lace bralette and panty set, a soft robe, your husband’s work shirt, or just the sheets on the bed.  I typically suggest bringing 3-4 outfits to choose from.  Whatever you decide, you will look lovely.  


Q.  How much does this cost?  What’s included?


A.  The boudoir experience starts at $900.  That includes a 1-2 hour shoot, retouching of your images, private reveal session, 25 digitals on a crystal usb, and a $100 print credit.  50% is due upon booking and the remaining balance is due the day of your session.  Payment plans are available - see question below.

Q.  Do you offer payment plans?

A.  Yes! Contact me directly to discuss a payment plan that fits your budget or you can use PayPal Credit to pay off your session in 6 months with no interest.
