"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”

How do you pronounce the word Boudoir?
Bood-wah! The "r" is silent. Now say it like you mean it! Ha!

What should I expect from a boudoir session?
Before, during and after this experience, you can expect to feel completely empowered and recognize your true beauty. I will coach you to pose from your head to your toes and capture you in the most flattering positions that fit your body type. You will be able to treasure your heirloom album, prints, and digital images for years to come!

4) day of session
5) in-person session reveal & ordering appointment
6) order products
7) products delivered to you

What happens during the pre-consultation?
We will schedule your pre-consultation for about a week to two weeks before your session. I prefer to do these "in person" either by FaceTime or Skype. If that is not possible, then by phone is perfect fine! This is one of my favorite times to connect with you because it's the start of a great friendship! My clients and I often become friends because we have shared an intimate and empowering moment together. Since each session is personalized to the client, magic happens. So in order for that to happen, we need to get to know one another first. We will discuss what your goals are for the session, if it's for a special occasion, for a significant other, what your style is, etc. You will also get to know me so that we are both comfortable with each other.

What happens during the in-person session reveal & ordering appointment?
This is also one of my favorite times to connect with you because it's where you will be wow'd when you see your images for the first time! We will go through your lightly edited images, of which you would decide which ones you want to select to include in your album and which ones you may want for prints. You will also get to see samples of what the products look and feel like. It's really fun!

Can I bring someone to the in-person session reveal & ordering appointment?
Yes of course! You may bring one supportive female with you to the viewing. Please note that I only schedule one reveal and ordering appointment per client, so please make sure your guest can make the scheduled time.

What is the schedule on the day of the photo session?
You will arrive for your appointment (with clean / dry hair and clean face) at the time scheduled. There will be roughly and hour of hair and make up time and then roughly an hour for our photo session. After you session we will schedule a day and time for us to review your images together. This is only done in person and takes roughly an hour. This is where we select images for your album and any prints you want. If you want to do it right after your session, I will need roughly an hour and a half to get your beautiful images ready for you.

How many images will I get?
It depends on the package you select. Packages start at 5 fully edited images .

How long does it take to get my album?
No more than 2 weeks from your in person session reveal & ordering appointment.

Can I purchase the digital files from my session?
Yes. The digital files of the images you select for your album, are included. If you would like to purchase digital files which are not part of your package, you may do so a la carte.

I don't think I can afford this.
I totally understand and that is why we absolutely do offer a payment plan option through Paypal Credit. I know this is an expensive gift for yourself or another and that is why I don't want you to NOT experience a Boudoir session because of the price tag! This is an amazing, fulfilling, empowering and beautiful experience and we want you to be able to cherish these memories for years to come! Ask me more about Paypal Credit!

Do you supply outfits / lingerie?
Unfortunately no we do not. There are too many body shapes for us to be able to accommodate everyone.

Where can I buy an outfit?
You can be utterly sexy in an off the shoulder sweater and underwear. You do not need to buy lingerie to have a boudoir session! If you want to buy lingerie, there are a handful of places. Just do an online search and be sure to add your location for locations closest to you. I do offer a few suggestion in my "Prep Guide". Once you book your session, I will email that to you! Also, be sure to have someone help you find something that fits properly and flatters your body!

Can I suggest ideas or props?
Absolutely! We can discuss this during our pre-consultation call.

Do you have accessories or props?
We do have a few items, however since you have a better idea of your style, we suggest you bring whatever you may think you would want. That being said, we do have flowy fabric such as tulle and silk charmeuse.

What excuses can I give to get out of the house without arousing suspicion?
You should be 100% honest and tell your significant other that you are going to meet up with your friend Julie :)

I'm super shy and am afraid I will look silly in my images.
Don't worry about any of that! I will instruct you on the poses that will make you look beautiful and sexy!

Can I bring a friend?
We ask that you not bring guests or children along to your shoot, as we have limited space and find the shoot goes much smoother without distractions. If you would like to share the experience with a friend and book your sessions together, we can accommodate that!

I have a few friends interested in a boudoir session! Do you have specials or a referral program?
I sure do! If you and your friend(s) book together, I offer a $200 package discount for you and $200 package discount for your friend(s). Depending on the number of friends, sessions can be done the same day. This option is super fun because the fun factor definitely increases when you and your friend(s) can share the same experience!
