Q: Where will my session take place and is it private?
A: sessions are 100% private. I never share any of your photos unless we agree on something different before the session. Sessions are held in either the privacy of your own home or nice, plush hotel suite!
Q: Do you offer retouching? Can you remove bruises, scars, blemishes, cellulite, etc?
A: I retouch all of your images to ensure you look your best but for extra retouching like tattoo removal, please discuss this with me prior to the session so I’ll know!
Q: I really don’t look like a model. Can I still have a boudoir shoot?
A: Yes! My clients range from 20-60 and come in all different sizes, shapes, and colors and each one is beautiful in their own awesome, unique way. I believe that there is a model in every woman and together, we’ll bring out the best in you!
Q: Are makeup and hair included? Can I just do my own and save money?
A: Every session includes full makeup and simple hair styling. Getting your hair and makeup professionally done is essential to a successful session plus it gives us time to chat, unwind, and simply shoot the breeze before the session starts. That’s worth its weight in gold plus you’ll look awesomesauce.
Q: How long will the session take?
A: Makeup and hair take an hour to an hour and half on the average. The photographic session also takes an hour to an hour and a half. It really depends but I never rush!
Q: What should I bring to the session?
I will provide you with suggestions on things to bring to your session in an email “tip sheet” you’ll receive upon reserving your session. Pinterest is great source of inspiration on what to wear and I highly recommend it!
Q: I’m not a model and posing even sounds awkard to me. Am I still a good candiate for an aweomse boudoir session?
A: Yep, I hear that all the time but guess what? It doesn’t matter because we’ll work together on sexy poses and we WILL bring out the model in you! One of my suggestions is to find Pinterest boards with your favorite boudoir shots and have that “at the ready” when I arrive. Now granted, not every boudoir picture seen on Pinterest will be complimentary to YOU but many of them will and we can work off of those as sort of a warming up stage for us. Trust me, it ALWAYS works out beautifully for my clients.
Q: When will I see my session images? How long does it take to get everything back?
A:About two weeks after your shoot, I will send you a link to your online password-protected gallery to view your final images. If you purchased digital files, they will be made available upon payment via instant download by online gallery.
If you’ve purchased other items like an album, canvas or prints, we’ll go over your order together and you will see a proof of the item before it goes out to be created and delivered to you. A week to two weeks later your gorgeous purchases will arrive at your doorstep.
Q: Why are you so darn expensive?
A: Because I’m good, friendly, and the most helpful photographer you could ever dream of hiring. I’m really one of the most down to earth, yet professional, photographers in the Tampa Bay area. You can trust me to have a great time and receive high quality images and albums. With years of photography under my belt, I can shoot you in roach motel and you would still look good. (no, we won’t go there)
Q: Do you ever run discounted sessions or specials?
A: I’m so glad you asked. I have boudoir marathons and it’s only $450 per boudoir diva. Get your girlfriends together, rent a plush hotel suite or pick a house, and voila. My makeup artist and I arrive and the fun begins. These really are a blast and amongst good friends, provide a lifetime of awesome memories. The actual sessions are done privately while your BFF’s are in the living area of the suite having champagne and munching on chocolate.
How many images will I receive?
A: Good question but in all honesty, it varies from session to session. Generally I produce 20-40 edited images from every session but it also depends on how many outfits you bring, the location, etc. I believe in quality over quantity so I ensure that our session brings out the very best in you.
