WHERE DOES THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Your session can be held at either a location of your choice or at my home studio. Often times, clients have chosen places they feel comfortable such as their home, or a friend's. Hotels, AirBNBs, and other locations are also viable options. All location costs are paid for by the client and travel charges may apply. While choosing location, keep in mind the look you are going for to help in bringing your vision to life.
HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION LAST?
From start to finish, the session lasts roughly three hours. One for hair and make up, and around two for the shoot. Additional time may be included for travel depending on location chosen.
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE MY OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?
This is client's choice! Whether you'd prefer to do your own or you'd like to have hair and/or makeup done by a professional prior to your session is up to you. I do work with several skilled hair and makeup artists that are happy to aide in creating the perfect look. If you go with the latter option, I just ask to know time of booking to ensure no scheduling conflicts. Professional hair and makeup begins at $175.
DO I BRING MY OWN CLOTHES AND PROPS OR DO YOU PROVIDE THEM?
Due to the private nature of boudoir sessions, it is up to the client to provide their own wardrobe and props. With that being said, we do offer a lingerie/wardrobe consultation service. Done by a woman for women, this resource helps you in choosing the pieces to best suite your style and the look you are going for. Consultation services start at $100.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND ALONG?
Absolutely! It is very common to be filled with nerves and excitement before your first boudoir session. Having a friend with you to make you feel more comfortable, keep the mood light, and who can get you to laugh/ bring out your personality is a great idea!
WHAT IF I WANT TO KEEP MY PICTURES PRIVATE?
Whether this was booked as a gift for someone or just for yourself, this is YOUR session. The images will be available for your viewing in a password protected gallery and you will receive a release form to fill out after. This form will give me specific instructions on if the images are to remain private or how any images may be used/shared on my end (website/social media). Whatever you choose, it is up to you and I completely understand and respect your choice.
HOW ARE PHOTOS CHOSEN FOR MY ALBUM/PRINTS?
You may choose to view your photos privately on the password protected gallery or we can schedule a time to go through the images together. When possible, I prefer to view them together since I can show you side by side comparisons, compare black and white versus color, and can give my professional opinon on what images may work together in an album. You can then review and decide what images you would like to be in the album/prints.
In order to be prepared for your session, I have compiled a list of helpful hints and tips! If there is anything you are unsure of that was not covered, please do not hesitate to ask!
