“A girl should be two things:
Who and what she wants.”
Boudoir brings out the raw, sexy confident YOU. As a photographer, I encounter so many people who have absolutely no idea how incredibly beautiful they are inside and out. The first time I had a client cry after receiving her photos because she was amazed that the incredibly strong, powerful, sexy woman in the photo was in fact her, I knew this was my calling. You are beautiful. You are strong. You are smart. And yes, you're sexy as hell. Are you ready to uncover that part of yourself? Because I have a feeling she's dying to get out.
What to Expect
What if I don't know how to pose?
Here's a secret... No one does! Everyone who schedules a boudoir session starts off being nervous and unsure of what they're walking into, I promise! That's where I come in. It's MY job to guide you and make you feel comfortable and amazing. All you have to do is show up, be pampered by my incredible makeup artist, slip into something that makes you feel strong and sexy, and let me do the rest.
What if I don't want to be completely nude?
This is YOUR session! I will NEVER make you do something you are uncomfortable with. I will always recommend we start a session with the outfit you're most comfortable in. Then I like to play around with blankets and pillows so you feel less exposed. Then we see where the session takes us! Usually, by this point, the nerves start to ease up, you hear the awesome music playing, and you just embrace the love. I will even show you some photos on my camera as we go so you can see how incredible you're doing. You will never be rushed or pressured into ANYTHING.
What if I want my photos to be completely private for my eyes only?
ABSOLUTELY. I will never break privacy agreements. I have multiple levels of model release forms. Some of my clients don't want any photos to be shared, and they stay 100% private. Some clients are okay with me sharing some of their photos, but want to chose which ones. And some clients are so excited to share their images that they post them themselves for a brag thread! Each one of these choices is 100% valid. I also use a professional print lab that specializes in boudoir products, so if you decide to purchase prints or albums, you know it will only be professionals handling your intimate photos, and not "Joe" from Walgreens!
Are there sanitary practices in place?
Yes! For those that don't know me (yet!) I am diagnosed OCD. I don't try to hide it. I schedule ONE session per day. Any bed, blanket, pillow, or prop that is used, gets washed with a disinfectant laundry detergent EVERY TIME. Yes, I do go through sheets and props often, but that is the price of a high-quality business model. I will not cut corners when it comes to my clients and their health.
I will also be asking every client some simple screening questions before every session to ensure everyone stays happy and healthy. If you feel more comfortable bringing your own sheets/blankets/pillows from home, you are absolutely encouraged to do so!
I am also vaccinated against COVID 19 and routinely take my temperature before sessions.
