Q + A
You've got questions, I have answers!
If your question is not answered here, give me a shout!
How do I schedule a session?
First, you can fill out the contact form here. Then we will schedule a consultation - this will help plan your dream boudoir photoshoot! During the consultation, we will chat about hair, makeup, outfits, products, payment, prepping yourself for the shoot, etc. We will also pick a day + time for your shoot. To officially book your session, you will need to sign a contract + pay the session fee retainer. This ensures that day + time is reserved just for you!
What is your cancellation policy?
Once you have scheduled your photoshoot + paid your retainer, it is non-refundable. If you need to reschedule, please notify me at least 1 week before (2 weeks for AirBnb rentals) before your photo session. Retainer fees are transferrable up to 6 months. It is up to you to contact me to book your new date.
How many outfits can I bring?
Your session includes unlimited outfits, but I like to keep it to about 3 options to make sure we utilize the time for your session. I recommend you bring 5-6 with you + we can choose the best ones while you're getting your hair + makeup done.
Can I bring a friend?
Most people find it more difficult to find their inner goddess with an audience, so I recommend that you don't bring anyone with you. My studio is also located in my home so I don't like having random people just hanging out in my living room without me being able to see them. The only exceptions are for Bachelorette Parties + Couples Sessions since my hair and makeup team is there the whole day as well. Men are not allowed in the room for sessions (except for couples shoots).
Should I tan before my photoshoot?
I don't recommend it. In photos, tanning tends to turn into an orange hue. Also, it can rub off on furniture + bedding. Tan lines are also not something I will edit out + never look good in photos! Embrace the beauty of your natural skin tone + your photos will turn out so much better!
Waxing? Shaving? What do I do!?
If you plan on waxing any problem hair areas, make sure to do so a few days before your session to give your skin time to heal + loose any redness. If you prefer shaving, make sure to do a close shave the morning of your session. Honestly, you know yourself best so just prepare the same way you would for a big date or a day at the beach! Also, do't forget to touch up those eyebrows!
What else should I do to prepare for my photoshoot?
Drink plenty of water leading up to your session, eat breakfast the day of, wear loose clothing to the photo shoot + if possible, avoid wearing a bra to prevent marks + lines on your skin. Depending on your hair, you may want to get a quick trim + touch up your roots. Relax + enjoy your boudoir session! YOU'RE GOING TO ROCK IT!
I have no idea what to wear...HELP!!
Don't worry babe, I got you! After you've booked your session, I will send you a complete guide to help you shop for the perfect outfits. It is only a guide so feel free to be as creative as you wish - this is your boudoir shoot after all!
Where will the shoot take place?
I have my own studio so you can come to me or, if you prefer, I can come to your home as well.
What if I can't relax? I'm so nervous!
I am a complete goof behind the camera while photographing clients! Within the first 15 minutes, most of my clients are walking around naked. Your experience is completely private and relaxing. You will feel like you got a workout by the end but it feels so DAMN GOOD to walk around without giving any f*cks cause you just rocked the sh*t out of your shoot!
Will you edit my photos?
I go through all your photos, choose the best ones for your gallery + lightly edit them. I will NOT make you look 10lbs thinner so don't ask!
Will you use my photos for your website, marketing, etc.?
Due to the nature of boudoir photography, I want you to know that I take your privacy very seriously. Your photos will not be used anywhere unless I have a signed model release from you to do so.
