Boudoir FAQs

Tell me what the first step is!


First you schedule a no-sales, no-pressure, pre-session consultation. We will go through the entire process and you can ask any all all questions you have on your mind!




Where do these sessions take place


GREAT question!! The three most popular locations include, your home (you will feel right at home here!!) my home studio, or a local hotel. I have several favorite hotels to choose from.




Can I bring someone with me?


Absolutely, positively, YES!! I encourage you to bring a friend or family member. They will receive the same warm welcome from me that you will! They will want to bring a book as the sessions can last up to 3 - 4 hours.




I just don't know how to be sexy, or pose and I am really nervous ...


I am 100% sure, no doubt about it, totally positive, you will channel your inner goddess as soon as you feel safe and secure. I am extremely good at making you feel comfortable, safe and relaxed. I have wonderful poses that will bring out your inner sensuality. I bring a pose "playbook" with images of past clients and/or examples of the pose so you can see for your self what we are striving for. Once you take your first couple of images you will begin to relax and that is when the magic happens.




Do I have to get naked??


Of course not! You can reveal as much or as little as you wish. Your decolletage is the most alluring and sensual area IMHO. Focusing on this area will give you photos you will treasure forever! We would NEVER neglect the other areas and will incoporate all your lovely features in our photographs.




What is included?


  • Style Consultation
  • Makeup
  • Champaign, wine or your fav beverage
  • Chocolate or your favorite treat
  • Personalized viewing and ordering session with me




What happens when I arrive for the photo session?


We will pick clothing and poses to flatter you and make you feel sexy, confident, alluring and beautiful. My hair and makeup artist will keep you 100% involved in the getting-ready process (because we want to keep you looking like YOU!). After your makeup and hair are perfect you will change into your first outfit. Now is generally when you notice the flock of butterflies in your stomach which are fluttering like crazy, Now it's FINALLY time to get started. The only reason you fear this part, is because you have no clue what to expect and that is 100% normal. I start some fun music on Pandora or other playlists and then we start SUPER simple. I have you lay down and look up at me, and I have you breathe through your mouth. That's it. You survive those 5 clicks of my camera, and the rest of the session is history. That ONE very simple pose will be the only one that is daunting, until you realize that the "sexy face" is no more than a breath through the lips, and looking at me. I will pose your legs, your arms, your arch, ALL OF IT.

For you to love this experience and your beautiful images, all that is required of you is FAITH that I will get you through this. You have to trust me, trust the process, trust the knowledge I've gained over years of experience.
The rest? I got you, babe




Will my images remain private?


I will never, EVER, publish any photos you have not approved for use in marketing my photography business EVER. I will not violate your trust. Many clients ask that their images not be published and they are never published. PERIOD. They are for your enjoyment or the enjoyment of whomever you gift them to.

I would love to use a few of them in marketing my business but you will be asked permission before i publish any of them.




Do you offer retouching? I’m worried about acne/cellulite/stretchmarks.


Retouching is included with every session. I remove scars as requested, acne, blemishes, stretchmarks and cellulite in addition to bruises and other random marks you may have on the day of your session!

I don’t “take off 15 pounds!” I work with clients to find the most flattering poses and lighting to highlight their best features. If there’s something you feel particularly self-conscious about, let me know.




I’m older than (not as thin as, etc.) the women on your website. Do you think I can still have a good shoot?


Absolutely! I regularly work with women 30 and up. Not everyone I work with wants their photo on my website, so you may not see someone who looks like you. I photograph women of all ages and sizes. The women on my website are real women just like you who went through makeup, put together thoughtful wardrobes and trusted me to help them create sexy, beautiful images. I can do the same for you.

Boudoir photography is for EVERY woman.





I can't thank you enough for taking this step to contact me to discuss making images together!!
