SHOULDN'T BE SCARY
I know you’re nervous… and that’s totally natural! Seriously… it’s more than ok to be nervous about stripping down in front of stranger. But hey, let’s try this: instead of being a stranger, consider me a friend!
That cheer-you-on-no-matter-what kind of friend. The kind that lives to make you feel like a million bucks. Now imagine that friend taking your boudoir photos: no biggie, right?!
My job isn’t just to take sexy photos of you. It’s to hear you, understand your needs and wants, to be your number one fan… only from there can we work on the sexy stuff : )
You’re nervous about having your photo taken because you don’t always LOVE photos of you. But these aren’t just photos of you... this is an experience. One that will make you feel vulnerable & empowered at the same time. And I promise the resulting photos will be better than you ever expected! I will pose and guide you every step of the way leaving no questions or doubts in your mind.
So no more excuses! Download your brochure below to read more about the experience & to see pricing information.
"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
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!
We'll sit down together to go through all of your photos one hour after your shoot. You'll choose your favorite images and what products you'd like to display them in! Your chosen photos will be edited to remove any blemishes, or bruises and soften the skin. Most products take 2-4 weeks to deliver and you'll also receive a digital copy of each image with copyright release.
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 make taking photos easy. And FUN. And you no longer have to be someone who's stressing about having their photo taken... you can just be yourself and I promise, it will be beautiful :)
My specialty is quickly making you forget all about whatever worries you walk in the door with. I'll help you show off your genuine personality by making you feel comfortable and like you're just hanging out with an old friend 🤘

HOW DO I POSE?! I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING!!!
That's what I'm here for!! I don't expect you to come in with any prior knowledge or experience. My favorite thing in the world is turning ordinary (aka non-model) women into full blown models with proper posing & guiding.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Sure my darlin! Whatever will make you feel most comfortable : )
HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN SEE MY PHOTOS?
For standard sessions - we will sit down for your viewing & ordering session one hour after your shoot. If that doesn't work with your schedule, you will return to the studio for a viewing session within one week.
For marathon events - you will receive an online proof gallery within 1-2 weeks.
HOW DO I GET MY PHOTOS?
Once you've chosen your top images, I will do any retouching & deliver your final digital images in a password protected, online, downloadable gallery. Your printed products will be printed and delivered to my studio in Orchard Park where you can either pick them up or pay a $10 shipping fee to have them sent to your home.
AM I ALLOWED TO PRINT OR SHARE MY PHOTOS ELSEWHERE?
Yes. You will receive a print release with your digital files and you can feel free to share on social media.
WILL YOU POST ANY PHOTOS OF ME ON YOUR WEBSITE OR SOCIAL MEDIA?
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 marathons are limited spot events, 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!
