Q: Is Hair and makeup included?
A: Yes! Hair and makeup application is always included in every session unless otherwise mentioned.
Q: Can I do my own hair and make-up?
A: You don't need to worry about doing your own hair & make-up. Our sessions are about the whole experience, and we want to you to be able to relax and not stress about if your style is coming out right, etc. Also make-up for camera is very different than every day make-up, so professional application is required for the best results on camera.
Q: Is there any images or product included in the session fee?
A: The session fee includes professional hair and makeup, a pre-session consultation, access to our 200 and a one hour shoot. The session fee covers time and talent of the photographer including retouching of images. All images and products are sold separately and you will find all those prices/ products in our welcome guide. Due to the custom nature of photography payments towards any product orders are non-refundable, but you do get final approval on your album design (after all it is your album!).
Q: How much retouching do you do?
A: My goal for these sessions is to document you as you are, to show you that you are a beautiful badass human being so it is important to me that I keep in line with that goal by keeping retouching to a minimum. I do color correction, skin softening, and over all touch ups that really makes your images unique artwork. I do not warp bodies to look smaller or into different body shapes, however scar, stretch mark, acne retouching is available upon request.
Q: How long does it take to see my images after my session?
A: Your images will be ready to view aprox 1-2 weeks after your session. If you are doing your session for a special occasion or for a significant other, and need them by a certain date - please allow enough time for image turn around as well as product order and shipping times. These times vary depending on the season during the year and product. Please allow 3-6 weeks for production and shipping.
Q: How soon can I book a session?
A: I currently book 6-12 weeks in advance. Sometimes last minute session dates become available.
Q: What is required to book a session?
A: To book your session you can send a email through the contact page, and we will set up a time to chat via FaceTime, phone or in person. You will receive a email with booking information, session contract, welcome guide and invoice. The invoice for the session fee (retainer) and signed contract is due immediately (24 hours to sign and pay the booking fee) upon receiving to book your date. No date is booked unless these two items are received. The session fee is a nonrefundable or transferable retainer.
Q: Who will see my images? Do you share them?
A: Only you and I see your images unless you share your gallery with a partner or other person. I only share images if you give me written permission. You privacy is extremely important to me so I do not share unless you say where what and when.
Q: How much does a boudoir session cost?
Boudoir or fitness sessions are a very special investment and experience (like a tattoo or a pair of Louis Vuitton that you save for). It is custom art work and each client has different tastes in terms of how they want to display their images. We offer a variety of different ways to display your gorgeous images. Sessions start at $375, and most clients invest $1200-$1600 total in their experience from session to product and digital images. The full price list is available via email - just visit the contact page to send me an email!
Q: Do you have a studio or where do you shoot?
A: I do not shoot out of a private studio, however I do have unique private locations that I use frequently. Rental of these locations is not included in your session fee.
Q: What do I do if I need to cancel or re-book my session?
A: You absolutely can! Sometimes things come up and that date no longer works. If you need to cancel or re-book your session, please let me know as soon as possible, and no later than 24 hours notice. Session fees are non-refundable if you wish to cancel. You may re-book your session once. Full cancellation policies are outlined in the session contract.
Q: Do you have outfits or do I bring my own?
A: I do have some items available for use but you must provide your own outfits as well. You will be required to wear your own underwear with any of our closet items, we suggest bringing thong or g-string style in black, white and nude. All our closet outfits are dry cleaned after every use.
Q: Can I bring a friend or my spouse/partner?
A: Unless it is a couples boudoir session, I do not allow others present at your shoot or your image reveal. This is your experience and as it may feel comforting to have someone present, its can be very distracting to my shoot process.
Q: Do you provide payment plans?
A: Yes I do, I know how exciting getting a session done is, but it also is quite an investment, a payment schedule allows for more babes to get what they really desire. A 50% deposit of the order total will be required to set up the payment schedule, as well as a signed contract and a credit card on file. No product or images will be delivered until the final payment on the plan is received.
Q: Are those models on your website? I don't look like these women, or am I too old to get a session done?
A; These sessions are for any woman, any background, any age (over 20 of course!), and any body type. From curvy, thick and voluptuous, to athletic and sculpted, and every body in between. All bodies are beautiful. All shapes are beautiful. ALL WOMEN ARE BEAUTIFUL. Do not let the fear of society's messed up idea of what beauty is stop you from celebrating your badass self!
