BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ
Do you offer on location Hair/makeup?
I absolutely do! You can choose to include hair and makeup with one of Phoenix’s best makeup artists. Hair and makeup usually takes 1-2 hours and we get to hang out while you’re having it done!
Do you provide lingerie wardrobe for the shoot?
I do not provide wardrobe for my clients, however, I have a fabulous lingerie styling guide I will send you when you book your session and I will also set up a phone consultation with you to help guide you in choosing your wardrobe. If you prefer to meet in person, we can do that too!
Where do your sessions take place?
All sessions take place at my sexy downtown Phoenix Boudoir studio space. The studio located off of 7th Street and Garfield in downtown Phoenix.
Who will be present during the shoot?
My studio is completely private. The only people present during your session are you, me and a makeup artist if you choose to include that option.
How long does the session last?
Sessions last about 60-90 minutes. Give or take a bit of time, I don’t love working on a strict timeline and prefer to have the option to shoot until I know we have a great variety of incredible shots. Everyone’s comfort level is so different and I find my clients need different amounts of time to get into their comfort zone.
Will my images be shared on the internet or social media?
How long will it take for me to get my final product after my session?
Your final gallery of edited images will be ready within 2 weeks of your shoot. Albums can take up to 2 weeks for final delivery once ordered. I suggest allowing at least 1 month from shoot to final delivery. If you need something faster, just let me know and I will do what I can to make it happen!
Do you photoshop my images?
My editing philosophy absolutely includes photoshop. I have a private female editor who will smooth your skin, remove blemishes, cellulite, stretch marks and whatever you desire. We can chat at your session to see what level of editing you are comfortable with. Our goal is to help you look like the best version of yourself. Additional editing is available upon request.
Do you offer Payment Plans?
Absolutely. Please see our Payment Policy for more details.
I am older, curvier, shorter, heavier, etc. than the girls on your website, can I still do a boudoir shoot?
Your are GORGEOUS! Boudoir photography is for every woman, every size, every age. We will work with you to create a collection of photos that you will LOVE!
Can I bring my significant other to our session?
I do not allow partners, husbands, significant others, boyfriends or girlfriends, etc. at my sessions.
Can I bring a friend to my session?
After 10 years of shooting boudoir, I find that sessions are a lot more successful without friends or family present, however, if you feel like you will need the support, you can bring a friend, I just ask that you chat with me about it first.
Do you photograph couples or men?
I do not photograph couples. I specialize in boudoir photography for women only.
How far in advance do I need to schedule my session?
I can typically schedule someone pretty quickly depending on your availability - if you are planning ahead, try to schedule at least a month out. I have a lot of last minute clients and a bunch who schedule 3-6 months out. Weekends are less flexible, so if you need a weekend, plan ahead for sure!
Do you provide Champagne or alcohol during the shoot?
Unfortunately, my business insurance doesn’t allow me to provide alcohol. Also, state laws prohibit a business to serve alcohol without a license, however, you are welcome to bring your own alcohol to your shoot.
What should I wear for my session?
Upon booking, I will send you my lingerie styling guide. I will also set up a consult with you to answer all your questions about what to wear. You can look through my boudoir gallery to see what past clients have worn as well!
How many outfits can I bring?
Luxury sessions include 3-5 outfits. You can also add outfits for an additional fee. You are welcome to bring a suitcase full of options and I will help you to choose the best options. Remember that nudes are counted as an outfit as well.
I have no idea how to pose or what to do with my face, do you help with this sort of thing?
Absolutely! You don’t have to know anything about posing, I will guide you every step of the way, from facial expressions, where to place your hands and what to do with your toes, etc. etc.
You must be 18 or older in order to shoot with me. I prefer to shoot with women 21 and older but will make exceptions on a case by case basis. (Modeling portfolios, headshots, etc.)
