This sounds amazing but how much is it?
If you want the cheapest, this is not it. If you want a personal, transformative self-love experience that will leave you feeling sexy and confident, you found it. The sessions range from one to three hours and length and the booking fee starts at $495 depending on the length of the session you choose. Average client investment in digitals, prints, albums and products is $595-$1495, but we have lots of a la carte options, there is no obligation to invest in products after the session, and we offer payment plans both before and after the session.
where and when do you shoot sessions?
I pre-schedule and advertise specific boudoir session dates. Sessions take place on weekdays, and makeup and prep begins at 10 am. Most sessions are shot in my studio in Westminster Maryland, however I can also shoot at another location of your choosing (we can even shoot outside if you want!) A travel fee may apply for alternate locations. I also hold marathon events about 2 times a year. These are very popular and sell out quick.

Everyone in these photos looks so chill, how? I am super nervous!
The bottom line is, I know this is most likely a new experience. I know you are stepping out of your comfort zone. I got you. Before the session, I will get to know your vision, your preferences, your fears. I will use that info to guide you step by step in styling and posing. I promise you will be surprised how quickly you feel comfortable, and we will laugh the whole session (in between sultry posing haha).

I am curvy, is this just for skinny chicks??
Umm what?? Heck no this is for EVERY body. Don't you dare let the thought cross your mind that you are too [insert negative self-talk adjective here] for boudoir. Don't tell yourself you will do it after you [insert negative crap about fixing your "flaws" here]. In fact, if you are feeling insecure for any reason, that is all the more reason that I encourage you to do this as you are RIGHT NOW. Celebrate yourself as you are. I can't wait to see you view your final images, and CRUSH those insecurities into the ground.
exactly How naked do I need to get?
You can go as tame or as wild as you want. It's up to you how much you want covered (or uncovered). You may start out with no intention of taking things off, but then get comfortable and decide to go a step further-and I will always respect your preferences. We can also do"implied nudity" where we make things steamy but keep it more reserved by using angles and shadows. It is totally up to you, and you will never be pressured.
When will I Get to see My Photos?
ONE HOUR after your session. Yep, you read that right. I will get to work right away editing your images so that you can go grab lunch or a coffee, and come back and view them that very same day. When you come back, I will walk you through all of the options for ordering products and packages. There is no obligation to purchase anything (but I have never had someone leave empty handed because once you see your badass self in these photos, you will want alllll the things!) Turnaround time for retouched digital galleries is 2-3 weeks. Turnaround time for albums is 4-6 weeks. I do offer rush options for an additional fee.
Can I keep my photos private?
Absolutely. All photo galleries are private and password protected. However, if you love them and want me to share them with future clients, I would LOVE to do so. After you view the images, I will give you the option to an sign a release to allow your images to be shared with future clients. There is no obligation or pressure to do so, though. And if you don't want them shared, they will always remain private.
CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP MY BUTT TO LOOK LIKE KIM KARDASHIAN'S?
Yes and no. Yes, I use flattering posing, careful use of angles and meticulous editing to help you look like the best version of yourself. That said, I value self-love, body positivity and authenticity, and you should too (especially if you hired me)! That means if your butt doesn't already look like Kim K's, it probably won't look like it in your edited photos, either, but that is ok, because I am quite certain your butt is amazing already lol! In all seriousness though: I don't typically do extensive editing to change things that make you you because I like you the way you are. Things like color correction and small blemish removal are included, but things like digitally altering your body shape are not. However if it is something you desperately want, it can usually be done but there is a per-image flat rate fee associated with those types of extensive edits.
