Reaching out is the hardest step! Email, call or send an inquiry and we'll chat! Whether it be in-person or over the phone my goal is to make you comfortable and answer all of your questions.
Learning all about YOU!
A comprehensive questionnaire will be emailed to you in the weeks prior to your session. The purpose is to define your boundaries, what makes you comfortable and what your ultimate goals are for the session.
I've been on the other side of the camera quite a few times for my own boudoir sessions so I understand how nervous you can be! This time is all about you! Making you comfortable, making you laugh and helping you feel great about yourself!!
Upon arrival we will go over your outfit choices or take a look at the Client Closet to see what outfit(s) will look best on you. We will once again go over your boundaries and limits - you are able to change these at any time!!
I will then go over the vision I have for this session, show you props I had in mind and answer any questions or listen to any ideas you may have.
Then we shoot!!! We will take breaks as needed, change outfits, touch up makeup or hair. I love just chatting during the session, laughing and joking. Your comfort is of the most importance to me!!
This is the best part!! Seeing all the magic we made is the most rewarding of the entire process. You will be amazed at how beautiful you truly are! Often we don't see ourselves as others do but THIS is your chance!! At this time you will have the opportunity to go over your proofs, products and discuss additional products you may want.
I don't know how to pose. How will I know what to do?
I never expect anyone to walk into my studio knowing exactly what to do - if at all! That's part of my job!! You are welcome to make suggestions along the way, share ideas or show me a Pinterest board of inspiration. Part of my on-going education is to learn and practice posing that is most flatting to your body.
How do I prepare for a session?
You want to look and feel your best. If your package does not include hair and makeup please arrive at the location already made up. Have your finger and toenails neatly manicured; they do not have to be painted but please make sure they are trimmed with no chipped paint.
Waxing or shaving is completely up to you. I will be shooting some very closeup photos (I LOVE details!) so make sure you have a hair-free, bump-free appearance if no-hair is what you like. I personally love being waxed! There is no razor burn and you can bet that every hair is gone! If you choose to wax please have it done more than 48 hrs prior to the session due to redness and swelling.
Who will be present during my session?
Typically it is just me or occasionally a female assistant. It is up to you if you wish to have a friend or family member present. Our location is private so there will be no intrusion of other clients.
Do I have to go fully nude?
No!! That is completely up to you and what you are comfortable with. You are free to wear what you want for your session. I will never force you to do anything you are uncomfortable with.
