My Approach

First and foremost, my studio is a zero-pressure and zero-negativity zone!

We are going to have fun, maybe dance around to Beyoncé, maybe name our top celebrity crushes (heyoooo, Channing Tatum!), and maybe (definitely!) decide to become best friends. All while capturing amazing, sexy photos of you.

This shoot is for you. Yes, you may be taking these photos to give as a wedding, anniversary, or birthday gift to your special someone - and trust me when I say that they will LOVE it. But we are here to celebrate you! Gorgeous, wonderful, amazing you.

Let’s do this!!

 

The Experience

 
 

01 // Let’s book your session!

After taking a peek at my boudoir gallery, email me to get all the pricing details and to schedule your session! I’ll send you the contract, signup form (to find out your favorite pump-up songs and your favorite wine), and deposit invoice. And of course I’ll be doing my pre-shoot happy dance in your honor!

02 // Session prep time!

We will chat through shooting locations, lingerie, accessories, how to prepare, and ANYTHING else you want to make sure that we get the best possible photos while keeping you completely comfortable! And we will definitely start prepping our shoot playlist with all your favs!

 
 
 
 

03 // It’s shooting day, baby!

I’ll be excitedly waiting for you to arrive for your shoot! First thing we’ll do is pop the champagne and toast to how amazing you are for getting out of your comfort zone! Then we’ll look through the outfits you brought to pick the ones that will photograph best, and then we’ll start capturing just how gorgeous you are!!

04 // Your photos are ready!

About two weeks after your session, we’ll get together again to look through a gallery full of all the beautiful images we created together! The first time through, just focus on enjoying every sultry look and sly smile you showed to the camera - then we'll start picking your favorites to print or create an album!

FAQs

Do you Photoshop the images?

Most photographers these days consider themselves to be either “completely natural” or “Photoshop it until it’s perfect” - I consider myself to be in-between those two. I absolutely want you to look like your real self in your photos, but I also know us girls can’t help but dwell on certain parts of our bodies (even if no one else would even notice them!). So when you schedule your session, I will send you a questionnaire that asks if there are any things you’d like me to pay special attention to so I can both pose your photos and edit your photos accordingly! If there are extensive retouching requests, there may be an additional charge.
 

What should I wear?

I will give you a full guide to what to wear once you book your session, so don’t worry too much about this one. I love cozy off-the-shoulder sweaters and lacy lingerie! But more than anything, wear what will make you feel comfortable and confident!
 

Will my photos be posted online?

This one is COMPLETELY up to you. Your comfort is my number one priority, so as part of your signup form when scheduling your shoot you’ll be asked what your level of comfort is with sharing the photos. Whether it’s a “hell yeah!” or a “hell no!” we are on board.
 

I want to lose some weight before the session - can I wait and do it later?

Girl, if I could reach through the screen and hug you right now, I would! Because I TOTALLY get this one. You are welcome to schedule your session for absolutely any time that fits your schedule - just make sure you plan enough time of you need the photos to be edited and printed for a gift. But, at the risk of sounding cheesy, you truly are beautiful just the way you are, and I will make sure we get photos that prove it!
 

Will you do nude shots of me?

If you want, absolutely! If not, then I won’t! This one is pretty simple. (Plus, we are just doing implied nudes with sheets, hands, etc. covering the goods - no actual nude photos will be taken.)


Can a friend and I book shoots together?

Of course! This is one of the most fun things to do! You guys can bring a bottle (or two!) of wine, get dolled up, and get some beautiful photos taken of each of you. Just make sure you let me know when you are booking, so I can plan time for two sessions.
 

Can I bring a friend/boyfriend/husband to watch?

Usually I am all about having your squad around most of the time, but unless you and your BFF are each doing a shoot I don’t recommend bringing anyone with you. In my experience, having an audience makes it tough to relax in front of the camera, and the best photos happen when you can just be yourself. So this day is all about you!
 

Will my shoot be private?

Absolutely! Most boudoir shoots take place in my studio, which is a completely private space. If we are shooting on location somewhere outdoors, we will talk through location options to make sure we find a private one that meets the look we are going for.
 

This isn’t really a question, but I am SUPER nervous about my boudoir shoot!

I get it, girl! That’s why I will be here for you every step of the planning process and shoot! I’ll be your coach as we tryout different outfits and poses, your cheerleader as you inevitably bring the fire to your sexy session, and your brand new BFF to celebrate your day of living out your America’s Next Top Model dreams! #fierce
