Do your packages include hair and makeup?

We do offer packages with complimentary hair and makeup by a professional MUA. See our full list of session packages here for pricing.

Am I allowed to bring alcohol to help loosen my nerves?

As long as you’re over 21, that’s totally fine with us. We do offer champagne or wine at your session to help you relax.

Do you provide the wardrobe?

We do have some miscellaneous items on hand but do not provide every item of your wardrobe. This is something we plan together via mood board and you will have items you will need to bring along and items to pick out and purchase yourself if desired. Many clients feel they need help choosing an outfit, so we definitely give you some suggestions and help with your wardrobe planning.

I want share these pictures with my partner, but I don’t want loose prints floating around. Any ideas for the best gift?

This is a very common concern and we totally understand. We recommend placing an order for our little black book. This is much more discreet and will keep all of your images in one place and not floating around. We also offer folios and accordion albums as well. For more information on these products, just ask.

What should I bring to my boudoir session?

For our sessions, we suggest two to three different outfits and any props you may want to incorporate.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, you can bring a friend if you think it will help you relax. However, sometimes an extra set of eyes has the opposite effect, even if it is a friend. They are more than welcome to come, but if they are making you uncomfortable, they may have to wait out in the lobby.

Will my session be with a male or female photographer?

I am a female photographer and I hire female help as assistants and make up artists so you will only have females present for your session.

Do you do touchups?

Yes, we will smooth skin and do some basic retouching on all of your portraits. This is something we will talk about in more detail at your consultation to understand how you feel about your skin and body!

I’m not a model – are boudoir photos still flattering even if my body isn’t perfect?

Absolutely! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy. If you have any specific concerns, contact us and we can talk about it!

Do you do outdoor boudoir sessions?

We currently do not have our own outdoor location to do this, but if you have some private land, let us know and we’ll set something up. We do offer outdoor boudoir sessions, but only if they take place on your private property. It also has to be in a secluded area, so nobody can see us during the session. We do this to protect you and our company.

Do I have control over who sees my images?

Yes, most certainly. We will only share photos if you have given us permission and have approved the images for sharing. We respect your wishes and won’t post or share any images if you’d prefer they stay private.

Boudoir Photography doesn’t have to be scary! It should be about giving yourself an experience of a lifetime!
