Frequently Asked Questions
+ Where does my Boudoir Experience take place?
The majority of the time your Boudoir Experience will take place in the comfort of your own home. By being surrounded in your own space, it allows for an experience and set of images that are completely unique to you.
+ What if I prefer not to use my home or it's not available to use?
If you prefer not to use your own home, you also have the option of renting a hotel room, an Airbnb, or asking a friend to use their space. I am here to help you with selecting an alternate location and can provide a few different options as a starting point. However, all expenses and final venue arrangements will be the sole responsibility of you.
+ How long does the session last?
Your Boudoir Experience will last about 3-4 hours. This allows us enough time to not be rushed and allow for your personality to show in the images. It’s recommended that you block out a 4-5 hour period of time that is free of any outside distractions in order for you to have the best experience.
+ I have no idea how to pose or what will look good. Will you help me?
Yes! I will walk you through a variety of different poses as well as things to do with your hands, where to look, and different facial expressions. I also take note of your natural way of movement and provide guidance on how to enhance those movements into a variety of poses that will be completely unique to you.
+ I don't have a perfect body or look like a model, can I still have a Boudoir Experience?
Absolutely! We all come in different shapes and sizes and have different insecurities about ourselves. This experience is the perfect way for you to see yourself like never before.
+ Do I need professional hair and makeup?
This is completely up to you. Because of my style, I recommend a more natural look when it comes to makeup and for the most part, your day-to-day application will be perfect. If you do decide to treat yourself with professional hair and makeup, I suggest allowing a minimum of an hour and a half of time before our session for application.
+ Do you only photograph women?
While I primarily photograph women, I also photograph men and couples of all ages, shapes and orientation. I highly encourage having a Couple's Boudoir Experience. They are a wonderful way to increase the connection between each other in any relationship.
+ Do I have to get naked?
While everyone has their own comfort level and it is entirely up to you, the majority of my work does involve nudity. All of my past clients have understood this is a body-positive experience and have the utmost confidence that the images will be taken in a tasteful manner.
+ Are you going to post my images online?
Your privacy is extremely important to me and I will only use your images when you give me permission to do so. All of the images that you see on my website and on social media are shared after clients have given explicit permission to do so. The images from your session can be kept as private or as public as you choose.
+ Do you retouch the images?
There will be some minor retouching done to the images. Most of the retouching involves removing any skin imperfections that are not permanently you. I prefer to remain honest and truthful with my work and stay true to who you are because I believe you are beautiful just the way you are.
