"I LOVE these!... I had so much fun on Saturday that I didn't really care how the photos turned out but they are better than I ever imagined they could be" -C
Do you see your social media starting to flood with boudoir images of women & think - I want to look like that! But I don't know what to wear, how to pose... I don't think my photos would turn out that great
We get into our own heads comparing ourselves to everyone else pretty often, don't we? Beating ourselves up for not looking, speaking or acting a certain way
Here's the secret though... You can look like that! You just need the right tools (hiiiii that's me!) to show you the way
Every woman I photograph is a real woman. She came in that day with no makeup on and no idea how to pose herself. And she walked away from her session feeling (and lookin) like a million bucks!
Can you imagine...
a truly enjoyable boudoir photo shoot without any of the stress & that results in AMAZING photos?!
You'll start your day with hair & makeup by a professional stylist to ensure you look your best! Take this time to relax, get to know us & enjoy some champagne to calm those nerves a bit ;) We'll also go over what outfits you brought and decide on a shoot order during this time.
Once we start taking your photos I will be posing and guiding you the entire time... I even get into the poses first to show you how it's done :) I'll make sure you know what to do with your face, your hands, etc so you're not feeling lost!
My combination of posing, proper lighting and portrait lenses will make sure your photos are professional model quality!
After your shoot, you'll be able to see your photos within 1-2 weeks (depending on your package). You'll choose your favorites for editing - where I'll remove any blemishes, or bruises. Your final images are then delivered in an online, downloadable gallery. It's password protected for your privacy.
This shoot is sure you make you step out of your comfort zone -- but the experience and the resulting photos will be worth any moments of doubt you had!
You'll see yourself in a new light.. in a new perspective ... & gain a wee bit more #selflove
"I'm so glad I did it because I see myself in the mirror everyday but seeing myself photographed is something completely different and gives a new perspective!" -S
DOES HAVING YOUR PHOTO TAKEN STRESS YOU OUT TOO?!
No really… nothing stresses me out more than having to be in front of the camera 🤣 Which is why I LOVE MY DAMN JOB.
Because I get to be that fairy godmother that shows people a side of themselves that’s like nothing they’ve ever seen before.
My specialty is quickly making you forget all about the fact that you hate having your photo taken. Bringing out your genuine personality by making you feel comfortable and like you're just hanging out with an old friend 🤘
How do I do it, you ask? Pixie dust 🧚♀️ just kidding… it’s just something I do very well. It’s what makes me good at my job. And what will make you LOVE your photos.
P.S. that's me in the photo... braving being in front of the lens!
- let's get to know each other before your shoot! You'll be even more comfortable the day of if we meet in person or even chat on the phone prior to your shoot
- we'll also use that time to talk about what you envision for your photos & outfits that will work great to capture that vision
- feel like a pampered princess before we shoot while you have your hair and makeup done and sip some champagne
- once we start shooting have peace of mind as I professionally pose & guide you

I won't post anything without your written permission! If you do grant me permission to show any of your photos, I won't tag you in anything unless you've specifically requested that I do.
HOW MUCH RETOUCHING DO YOU DO?
I want you to look like yourself, so I do very minimal retouching... I will soften your skin a bit, and remove any bruises or blemishes. I don't remove moles, freckles or anything else that's natural to your look, unless you specifically request that I do.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE?
For standard sessions - I will do my best to accommodate your reschedule requests. Cancellations will not be refunded the session deposit.
For marathon events - Due to the fact that this is a limited spot event, there are no cancellations or refunds allowed. Sorry to be so tough, but when one person cancels it jeopardizes my business. If you cannot make your appointment, you can have a friend take your place. Thank you for understanding!
Are you ready to do something completely thrilling & out of your comfort zone?!
Don't worry, I'll make sure it's the experience of a lifetime & that you LOVE your photos!
