I have never modeled before. Will you help me with posing?
Absolutely. The majority of my clients have never modeled before. I will guide you through all of the poses so that you can relax and have fun during your session.
How long does a boudoir session take?
Approximately two hours, with around an hour and half of camera time. Before the session, you will be greeted with champagne or sparkling cider and we will discuss your goals for the session as well as narrow down your outfits to what will photograph best on you.
What should I bring?
What you wear should ultimately reflect your style and level of comfort. For some women, it is traditional lingerie and sexy heels. For others, it is a Batman shirt with converse sneakers. For the adventurous, it is nothing at all, wrapped in satin sheets. Be you! Bring 3-6 outfit options and I will help you narrow down your choices to what will photograph the best on you.
Where are you located?
I operate out of my home studio in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
Will my photos be retouched?
I do lightly retouch all images and remove non-permanent blemishes that naturally fade away such as acne, and bruising. However, I do not do excessive editing such as body resizing and reshaping. Instead, I utilize light to sculpt the body and posing to compliment each woman’s figure.
When do I get to see my photos?
At the time of your session, we will schedule an in person full reveal of the rest of your finished photos for approximately three to four weeks after your session.
I want to give my photos as a gift. How soon do I need to book?
You should plan to schedule your session at least six weeks before you need to give your gift. It will take up to four weeks to receive your edited photos and approximately two weeks to receive your album.
Will you post my photos online?
I will never post any pictures of you without your express consent. Your finished, edited pictures will be placed in a password protected gallery on my website that only you and people you share it with will have access to. However, many of my clients do choose to allow me to share some of their photos in my online portfolio. Again, these are only displayed with the express consent of my clients.
Do you do hair and make-up?
Yes! Or, you can choose to spend your morning pampering yourself at your favorite salon, or to do your own hair and make-up. Come ready to get started so that we can spend the maximum time taking your photographs. Make sure to bring lipstick or lip gloss for touch ups.
Can we do the session at my house or a hotel?
Yes! I am happy to travel to your home to do the photo shoot. An additional travel fee may be added depending on the distance. I am happy to do a client’s shoot at a hotel. However, the client will be responsible for the full cost of the hotel room. Please feel free to contact me with more questions about this option.
Do you do sessions outside of Pennsylvania?
I enjoy traveling and will come to you to do a session. However, the client will be responsible for travel expenses. Please contact me to discuss this option.
