How do I book a Boudoir session with you?
When should I book my session?
To book a session with me, you'll need to shoot me an email letting me know you're interested and we can set up a phone consultation! During that consultation we will go over all of the fun details including what to expect before, during, and after your session, along with pricing! You can ask me as many questions that you have and once you're ready we will pick a session date, take care of the session fee via phone, and that will lock you in! You'll then receive a welcome email from me with your Welcome guide, contract, and every detail you could imagine!
*Sessions are not confirmed until a contract is signed*
How long is the session?
Boudoir Sessions with me take roughly 5 hours, unless we are just having too much fun and lose track of time, it could be 6 hours. <3
Here's how the day looks:
11:00am - 12:30pm : Hair & Makeup
12:30pm - 1:30 pm : Photo shoot
1:30pm - 3:00pm : Lunch Break/Editing
3:00pm - 4:00pm : Selections/Ordering
Where is your studio located?
My studio is in Grant Park, IL. (the country town south of Beecher - not Chicago!)
It is an in-home studio in a private wing of the house! The house is located on 14 acres of wooded, secluded property. There is opportunity to shoot outdoors if the weather is nice enough and if you are interested! <3
Will you help me figure out what to wear?
Yes! Once you're booked in, you will get a welcome email from me that contains a list of recommended places to shop for pieces! You also have access to utilize my complimentary client closet with outfits ranging in size from XS - 4XL if you don't want to purchase your own outfits or just have no idea where to start! You'll have endless access to me and we can send ideas back and forth to find the perfect outfits to compliment your body! I will help you every step of the way!
Will you pose me?! I'm awkward!
If I had a dollar....!!! lol None of my boudoir babes are models - they are all average women who have more than likely never been in front of a camera in this way before! I don't expect you to know what to do!
Yes! I will pose you from head to toe, including facial expressions! I will demonstrate the pose myself, first, and then guide you when it's your turn and even physically move arms/legs/hair/outfits to the proper spot wanted to ensure a bomb ass photo!!
Can I bring a friend to my session?
Short answer? Yes! If it makes you feel more comfortable, you absolutely can bring a girlfriend or spouse to hang out during the makeup portion of your session! (No men are allowed during the photo portion of your session.) If at any point I notice the girlfriend getting in the way, or interfering with the quality of your session, I will politely ask them to wait elsewhere until the photo portion is done, to ensure you get the best outcome from your experience! No phones allowed! (unless they want to take behind the scenes shots for me ;) lol!)
If you are looking to book your session for a particular date to give as a gift, I recommend scheduling your session for at least 6-8 weeks out to ensure products come in on time for your date! Otherwise, whenever you damn well feel like it!! <3
Do I have to get naked?
Heck no! I will never force you to do anything you are not comfortable with! I will ask if you want to do a few shots either fully nude, or implied nude (think sheets covering) and you have the option to say "no thank you!" and that's that!
Do I have to share my images publicly?
Nope! I have four different privacy options you get to choose from when scheduling your boudoir session! Plenty of babes have done sessions with me and you will never see one photo! It's always whatever you're comfortable with.
1.) Full Public - any image can be used anywhere at any time!
2.) Anonymous Public - only images that don't show your face/identity can be used.
3.) Private Group Only - any image can be posted in the private FB group that is only ladies! (where my sneak peeks are posted!)
4.) 100% Private - No images will be shared anywhere for any reason!
What is the average cost of a Session?
What you spend on your boudoir session totally depends on what you're wanting! I have a variety of products and collections that I offer that range from $1500 - $3900 with the average babe investing $2700. I tailor everything to what you want and need! Fill out the contact form and we will schedule a call to go over all of these details!
Do you offer payment plans?
I understand that this boudoir experience is an investment and I do offer a *pre-session payment plan that fits within your budget! Let me know on your phone consult that you'd like to do a pre-payment plan and we can set you up accordingly!
What is the turn around time for delivery?
The turnaround time for digitals and products is roughly 6-8 weeks depending on the season. It could be shorter and it could be longer. If you're needing your images/products by a certain date, you must let me know at the time of booking to ensure communication is open about current completion times.
What if I have my period on my session date?
No worries here! So long as you are comfortable wearing a tampon! We just make sure that everything is not visible and go about business as usual! I do not reschedule sessions due to periods.
