What is the vibe you are going for?
There are so many different styles of boudoir! I like to think about it like kinds of dessert; each one is equally appealing, but you will always have your ride or die favorite (obviously cheesecake is the winner for me).
That being said, my FAVORITE style of boudoir is MOODY! Think DARK SHADOWS & BOLD HIGHLIGHTS!
If you ask me to explain my style I will say, "think about a tiny dark closet a with one light". That is my happy place. However, I am realistic and understand that this isn't always the vibe you are going for! Trust me I have shot many different styles, including light and airy!
The choice is yours. I want this to be YOUR shoot, personal to YOUR style.

Reveal + Ordering APPOINTMENT:
YAY! You have done the damn thing. Now you’re back at the Studio, anxious to see your transformation. First, we will get you a drink! Next I hit play, and there you are up on the BIG SCREEN. Sit back & enjoy.
Once you've seen all of your gorgeous images via slideshow, we will go through each image individually! You will be able to flag your potential selections as we go, and compare possibilities side by side throughout the appointment. Then I will show you all of the product offerings that are available to you. I have a wide selection of incredibly high quality and high impact wall art, albums, and of course digital files. My clients typically find themselves on average spending $2,500 on photo products. There is ZERO obligation or pressure to purchase anything. I just prefer to fully educate you prior to your viewing appointment on what the average client ends up purchasing so you know if you need to bring your “secret” credit card! I’ve never had anyone not completely swoon over their images!
I have attached the 2018 PRICING GUIDE so you can get another look at everything there is I have to offer. That way you can have an idea of the direction you’d like to take at your appointment.
I will be there every step of the way to help you decide on your favorite images and products so we can create your perfect order. At the end, you'll pay for your artwork and the editing begins.
Typical turn around time on product:
Album Design Proof: 4 weeks
Wall Art: 6-8 weeks

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY FINAL PORTRAIT ORDER?
A: You will receive your final order, if paid in full, in about 5 weeks. If you have a specific date that you need photos by, let us know ahead of time. Rush orders (any order with a completion date in under 12 business days from ordering appointment), will be subject to a 20% rush processing fee. Clients on payment plans will receive product in up to 3 weeks after the balance is paid in full.
q: Do I HAVE to share my photographs?
A: Absolutely not. That being said - I do personally think that everyone should share at least one photograph in the group. You will feel great seeing all of the likes and comments! Plus you are going to be absolutely stunning - the world would love to see and talk about how beautiful you are! If you do decide to share, I can always share anonymously. I do not have to use your real name or face in the photographs. In the end, it is completely up to you whether your photographs are shared or not!
Q: I am not a lingerie type girl. Can I still do boudoir?
A: Absolutely! Lingerie is not the only way to look and feel sexy. You can do a boudoir shoot wearing a dress, robe, button up, leather jacket, etc. Let us know your vision, we can make it come to life.
