Who will be photographing my session? I see your husband helps with the wedding photography. All sessions are photographed and edited by myself. (Shelley) There will be no one else present in the shooting area and your photos will only be reviewed by me.
I am not sure how I am supposed to pose? It's natural to be nervous so I start with some really simple shots then once we get going the nervousness will disappear and you will have a lot of fun. I have tons of ideas that will flatter your body so leave the thinking up to me. Do feel free to let me know if you have any specific ideas you want to try!
Why would I want to book a boudoir session? You want to look and feel fantastic, sexy, racy, pretty or glamourous. It's a present for yourself or your significant other. You are getting married and want to give him something he will never forget. You have accomplished a goal you set out to do or you just simply might want some hawt pictures of yourself!
Should I get my hair and make-up done? I highly recommend getting your hair and make-up done. It is important to use a professional as they know how to apply your make-up specifically for a photoshoot. I can get you in touch with a fantastic hair and make-up artist that will bring out your features as well as get you pumped about your session with me before you even arrive. It will not only make you feel and look good but turn it into a fun girly day that you deserve.
How do I prepare? Moisturize, get a pedi and a manicure and wear loose clothing to your session so you don't have red marks on your skin. Bring outfits that wrinkle on hangers and make sure you bring outfits that you feel sexy in. It doesn't matter what it is as long as you feel fantastic in them!
How many outfits should I bring? 3 to 4. More is better and remember texture like lace photographs really well. You might also want to bring something a bit different like a sports jersey, button down shirt, tie, hat etc. Use your imagination.
Do you supply clothing? I do not, although I have some birdcage veils, masks, hats etc that you are more than welcome to use.
What should I wear? Texture texture texture!!! Sexy heels and boots. Wear items that flatter you, make you feel sexy and hide those problem area's that you worry about. Once you book your session I can send you out an e-mail with clothing suggestions.
What if I am not as skinny as I want to be? Do not worry! It is my job to emphasize your assets and minimize the parts you may not be so fond of. I have really good skill with lighting and posing so you are going to look fantastic no matter what size.
Do you do nudes? Sessions do not generally include nude or exposed topless images. If you do want some of these please let me know, otherwise I will not suggest any.
Will you be posting my images on the internet? Not without your permission. I respect your privacy and I ONLY display images that have been approved by my clients. You will view your own pictures in a password protected gallery. Only you and I know the password unless you choose to give it out to someone else.
What does my session include? It depends on what package you choose to go with. Please text or email me to get my pricing link and find a package that suits your needs. A $200 retainer will need to be paid before I can secure your date.
Are my photos retouched? I will post a few in your gallery that are fully retouched so you can know what to expect for a finished product. The rest are just proofs. Once you order your prints and/or albums they get my pro level touch-up. Tan lines and tattoo removal (unless it's tiny) are not included and can be fixed at an additional cost. If you have a mole or scar you DO NOT want removed please let me know when placing your order.
How long until I receive my images? Your proofs will be in your own private gallery 2-3 weeks after your session. Once you place your order your prints and most albums will be ready 1-2 weeks from your order date. Some albums may take longer depending on which one you go with. I will let you know.
How do I book my session? Contact me through e-mail so we can find a date that works for you. I will then require a $200 retainer to hold your date. If we have to move your session for some reason that's not a problem but please be aware your retainer is non refundable and is applied to your package.
