Will my photos from the shoot be shared on the internet?
Not unless you grant permission for us to use specific photos that you select for our marketing purposes. On our pre shoot agreement, you can initial and date granting permission or not granting permission. Either way, your private images are kept safe.
Can I bring an escort/significant other?
Absolutely! They are more than welcomed to come along & I may ask them to jump in and take a couple pics while you are changing ha ha. We only ask that they do not take photos, stories or snap chats during the session as it tends to distract everyone from concentrating on making the best photos possible.
What should I wear?
Prior to the session date, we will consult with you on wardrobe suggestions and brain storm on procurement. We will send you links to stores for you to choose outfits from. We always suggest a cute one piece as it flatters every shape and size.
Is nudity required?
Absolutely not, You the client dictate what outfits that we shoot in. Some clients choose to create implied nude fine art photographs with sheets and drapes, however as stated prior – the client is the driver of the session.
How much will you edit me? Can you photoshop my body?
Boudoir editing to me is more about “keeping it real” so to speak. Where as editing for glamour and beauty take it to another level with liquefying parts of the body and totally smoothing out the skin. I do smooth out the skin a touch to improve consistency and remove temporary blemishes such a bruises, pimples etc. But for the most part, I believe if you are properly posed and the lighting is manipulated correctly, less editing is required. For those that want more extensive editing, that can be discussed prior to the shoot or the reveal session at a per photo cost basis.
