YOU ARE PERFECT 
JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

“You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.”
― Amy Bloom

"[Women] do not have to struggle and study to become sensual; we always were. We need not believe we must somehow earn good erotic care; we always deserved it.

Femaleness and its sexuality are beautiful. Women have long secretly suspected as much. In that sexuality, women are physically beautiful already; superb; breathtaking."
-Naomi Wolf

Do you shoot in studio or on location? And is there an additional location fee?
I shoot all on location. It makes my photography stand out above the rest and gives you a huge variety in looks. What you see in my galleries is all photographed at hotels, beautiful private properties, and other select locations. There is no additional location fee unless you want to shoot at your own location.

1.

Do you retouch the images?
Yes, retouching is included. At the session, I will show you a demo on my iPad of what retouching is about. Basic retouching is included; stuff like cellulite, blemishes, and skin-smoothing is included. Extensive retouching, such as Photoshop magic to make you lose 20 pounds, is an additional charge because of how much time it takes. If you have a specific retouching question please email me and I will be happy to answer it for you.

2.

How long does the session take?
The session takes about two-three hours. I know, it sounds long but time flies by!

3.

May I bring a friend to my shoot?
A female friend can join you while you have hair and makeup done but once we start shooting they will need to leave or wait in the car. I shoot 360 so it is difficult to keep moving someone out of the background. I promise I will help you will feel confident and relaxed for your session.

4.

What should I wear?
I have a BEAUTY GUIDE I will send to you upon booking. It includes many great tips and wardrobe suggestions for your session, plus it answers questions you may have not thought of. I also have several blog posts on what to wear. Just hop on my Boudoir BLOG and search “what to wear”.

5.

Do you offer on-location hair and makeup?
My packages include professional hair and make-up artist. Know that your hair and make-up are as important to me as they are to you. My professional H&MUA will talk to you about a look that is just right for your photographs. We want you to love the way you look, whether it’s a “natural” or “dramatic” look.

6.

Do you provide lingerie for the shoot?
It is best for you to bring items of your own because they will fit you best. I highly recommend you try on all your items pre-shoot to ensure they fit you well. Clothing that is too tight or too loose cannot be photoshopped. I will give you a suggested list of items to bring. You should bring more items than we will use so I can do a wardrobe consultation with you to choose the best outfits for the session.

7.

Do you provide Champagne or alcohol to calm my nerves?
Unfortunately, my insurance does not allow me to serve alcohol. Also, state laws prohibit a business to serve alcohol without a license. But you are welcome to bring alcohol with you. We can use it as a photo prop too.

8.

Do you provide props?
I can provide a few statement necklaces and for brides, I have several veils I can provide in case you do not have one yet. You are welcome to bring small props. My Beauty Guide has some ideas on props you can include.
