DETAILS
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

In your pre-consultation we will go over wardrobe ideas. There are actually more options than you think and it will be fun to bring our your personality through your wardrobe for a customized session. If still in doubt just bring it all! We can play around with your outfits to come up with some different looks. Also, bring a pair of sexy heels to make your legs look a mile long and some accessories. 

Putting together a personal Pinterest board is a great way to find wardrobe ideas, figure out the look you want, and just pin beautiful imagery. Check out my Pinterest pages for some more clothing ideas...

*Tip: If you’re planning a Boudoir Party with your friends then schedule an afternoon to go lingerie shopping together!

WHAT ABOUT HAIR AND MAKEUP?

Hair and makeup is included in your full session. It will be the ultimate pampering experience. Remember, these are beauty shots so you’ll want your hair and make up to match the look of your lingerie, which is going to be sexy and fabulous, and a professional knows exactly how to achieve this.

*Tip: False eyelashes and a siren red lipstick will amp up your sexiness no matter what you are wearing

I’M SHY AND VERY BODY CONSCIOUS – IS BOUDOIR REALLY FOR ME?
Boudoir is for every woman. You don’t need to be out-going, overtly sexy, or a size 2 model to have a successful boudoir session. Most women come in feeling a little nervous, but relax after the first ten minutes of shooting. It happens every time. Once you have your hair and makeup professionally applied and you are in your first outfit you will be ready to go. I will guide you every step of the way and demonstrate all the poses first. Then all you need to do is mirror me right back. It’s very easy and promise to make you look fabulous by highlighting your best assets. We will go into more detail of what to expect from the beginning to the end during your consultation so don’t worry about not knowing what to do.
WHO WILL BE PRESENT FOR MY SHOOT? 
During the actual shoot it will only be you and I. You could bring someone along but make sure they are going to be 100% support and can offer only positive encouragement.
WILL MY IMAGES BE USED ON YOUR WEBSITE OR BLOG?

No. Your images will not appear on my website or blog unless I get your permission first. My first and foremost concern is your privacy.

WHAT DO PEOPLE USUALLY DO WITH THEIR BOUDOIR IMAGES?

Albums! Albums are the most popular choice for boudoir sessions, especially if you are doing this to give as a gift for someone else. Another favorite is digital images or fine art prints. But I STRONGLY urge you to get your beautiful images off of the computer. My work will be your art!

Not quite ready for a Boudoir session? Try a Beauty shoot

A Beauty shoot is a fashion-inspired portrait shoot where you get to experience what it’s like to be a model for the day while discovering your own Beauty, what makes you unique on the inside & outside. This is a fun way to celebrate YOU at any point in your life.

This fun + fashionable session takes place in my studio or out on location. You will have your hair + makeup done by a professional and get wardrobe styling assistance to highlight your own style and beauty. You can make it as casual or as glam as you want it to be.

Don’t worry if you don’t know how to pose because I will absolutely guide throughout the whole shoot you so you feel comfortable and look amazing. Why should Gisele, Kate, and Tyra have all the fun smizing in front of the camera? Real women should also get to experience what it’s like to be a cover model for the day AND have a beautiful fashion-inspired portrait of themselves.
