+ WHAT TYPE OF SPACE DO YOU RECOMMEND WE SHOOT IN?
When searching for a space, I recommend my clients to consider the following. Look for spaces with lots of natural light, have a larger space and a couple furniture options for us the utilize. Also consider how you would like the decor of the space to look. Personally I love modern spaces, brick walls and spaces with couches and chairs to pose my clients in for variety. I have a list of my favorite local Northern Virginia and DC hotels and have a studio space in Alexandria, VA I use that I am happy to send you!
+ DO YOU PHOTOSHOP YOUR CLIENTS?
No way! I am proudly part of team #realisbetterthanperfect and body positivity! A photoshopped body is NOT you and certainly is not a celebration of you. The only time I edit anything but color and light is if there is skin discoloration, small blemishes or a distracting item in the background. If you get your photos back and do not like how you look, they can be sent off to a professional editor for an additional fee.
+ WHERE SHOULD I BUY MY LINGERIE FROM?
There are so many great options out there to look into for purchasing your lingerie. My favorite options I have shot I have come from H&M, Urban Outfitters, Victoria Secret, Target, Calvin Klein, Aerie, and Amazon.
+ SHOULD I GET MY HAIR AND MAKEUP PROFESSIONALLY DONE?
I think when it comes down to it you should do whatever makes you comfortable but I would recommend getting professional hair and makeup! I want my clients to feel like queens in front of the camera. There is nothing more frustrating and stressful for my client coming into a session where they are already a little nervous not feeling confident and beautiful in front of the camera because they are worried about how they look. I have a great hair and makeup team that I work with who does all my boudoir sessions that I have for an additional charge to do hair and makeup that I would love to recommend.
+ HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECIVE MY PHOTO PRODUCTS?
Once you order and I design your photo products, it takes up to 4-6 weeks to deliver for you to have them in your hands. You can choose to have your products delivered if you live within 30 miles round trip from my home in Sterling, VA or have them shipped directly to you once I have inspected the products.
+ DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS FOR YOUR BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE AND ANY ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS I MAY WANT TO PURCHASE THAT ARE NOT INCLUDED IN MY PACKAGE?
I do! For my boudoir experience and any additional products separate from your package, I break your payment up into two parts. For booking me, the first payment of a 50% non refundable retainer is due upon signing my contract and the second half is due 48 hours before our shoot. For products, the first payment of 50% is due upon ordering and the final 50% due once I have inspected your products for quality and you come to pick up your items or have them shipped.
+ WHAT TYPES OF BOUDOIR SESSIONS DO YOU OFFER?
I offer private boudoir, couples boudoir and boudoir parties.
