Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not a size 2, is boudoir for me?
You might be surprised to hear that many of my clients are moms, over the age of 30, and definitely NOT a size 2, or even a 10! Posing & lighting for everyBODY is my specialty.
I’m older than the girls on your website, can I still book a session?
Of course! I feel bad that people even ask this question! I have shot with many women over 50 and well into the plus sizes. Not everyone is comfortable with their photos being in my online portfolio so I can’t show a lot of examples. What I can promise is that I will create images to flatter YOU and best show your personality. I believe every woman is beautiful and it’s my job to show you just how gorgeous you are.
Do you share all of my images on the internet?
Absolutely not! I only share images that my clients sign a release for allowing me to share. There are different levels of sharing too. You can choose just to share in my private group. You can choose to share publicly. Or you can keep your images completely private.
How long does it take to get my products?
After your products are paid in full it takes about 3-4 weeks.
Is hair & makeup included with the session fee?
Hair and makeup is included in every package I offer, and my stylists have been hand-picked (by me) for their talents. I want to provide an experience that makes you feel beautiful and pampered, and images that will help you appreciate the true beauty you possess!
What is your refund policy?
Due to the custom nature of photography, the session price and any products ordered are non-refundable. You have final say on the retouching and any custom album design and nothing goes to print without your approval.
Can I bring a friend to my shoot?
Generally I prefer to work one on one with my clients, simply because sometimes an ‘audience’ can make you feel more self conscious. If you must bring someone for moral support, I limit it to one person.
I have cellulite/stretch marks/acne. Can you get rid of that?
In most cases, yes*. Removal of acne, acne scarring, stretch-marks, and cellulite is part of the retouching process. What I don’t do is put your face on someone else’s body or ‘take off’ 30lbs. If there is something you feel self-conscious about, we can use poses and lighting to emphasize your best features instead. *if you have severe cellulite or acne, I may not be able to retouch it all out. If you’d like a personalized consultation to discuss it, just let me know
I’m ready to book a shoot, what’s next?
Once you let me know what date you’d like to shoot, I will send you a booking proposal and contract. The contract must be signed and a non-refundable retainer is due to reserve your shoot day/time. The remaining balance is due on or before the day of your shoot, and payment can be made with credit card through my online booking system. I also offer payment plans if you need a bit of flexibility in order to afford the package you really want to book.
I’m not sure what I want to order yet, can I decide when I see my photos?
Absolutely. After the shoot I welcome you back to the studio to view your images and discuss product options. Once you decide on what you’d like to order (album, canvas, etc), 50% of the total is due to begin work on the design and the remaining balance is due when you pick up your order. I do not release product orders without full payment.
Where do the shoots take place?
We shoot in a hotel suite or private residence. Exact location will be confirmed and sent to you prior to your shoot.
