The Boudoir Experience

This boudoir photoshoot experience was designed specifically for you. Anything you're worried about, we've already got it covered. Anything you've been dreaming up for your session, we can make it happen.

Every session begins with a creative collaboration so you and I are on the same page before your session begins. I send each of my clients an extensive preparation guide to walk you through the months & weeks leading up to our time together. I also have you share your ideas, concerns & vision with me via a questionnaire and a mood board, both of which will guide the creative direction of your session.

You have the option of adding on professional hair and makeup to your session if you desire. Every artist I work with is well versed in all skintones & hair textures to create a look that enhances your natural features, rather than overshadows them. The end result is soft & glowy skin, accentuated eyes & cheekbones & typically loose waves in the hair.

Your session is 90 minutes long, which is enough time for a minimum of three looks. Throughout the entirety of the session, I will be giving you extensive guidance on both your posing & your facial expression. You won't have to know how to position your body, or what to do with your hands, I've got you 100%. I have a pocket full of tricks to make it all look much more natural than it feels.

From start to finish your experience is full service and tailor made.

You are, amongst so many things, a muse, an artist, a poem. You are unique. Your legacy is your own and if you don't tell your story, then who will?

Beneath beneath all the texture of the life you've built, there is a woman who belongs
to herself; she exists in multitudes, she dwells in duality and glows with
confidence, beauty & pleasure. 

For years, boudoir photography has long informed what it means to be sexy, to be desired, to be feminine. Largely regarded as a gift to the male gaze; boudoir photography has been historically hyper-focused on one detail of a woman: her sex appeal. It's time to flip that script. Be sexy as hell if you want to be, but do it for yourself. Because it makes YOU feel empowered. Because you love your body enough to honor her and because you are ready to come home to HER.

You are alive in this wild and beautiful world. It's time to be celebrated for your unfolding & the stories of your ever-growing legacy.

A boudoir session is an intention to see yourself with a loving gaze and the sweet surprise of seeing the highest version of yourself staring right back at you.


A BOUDOIR SESSION IS A LOVE LETTER TO SELF, TO YOUR DIVINE FEMININE

THE PROCESS

HOW IT WORKS

Once you've secured your session date and time as well as completed payment, will take to some time to talk on the phone and get to know each. I lover hearing all about your vision (and fantasies) for your session and I find that the more comfortable we are with each other, the more epic and amazing your images will be.  

01

planning

As your session approaches, I will be there to provide support and guidance, helping to ensure your wildest dreams will come true and that I know which elements are most important to you. Together we will create 2-3 mood boards to help you get inspired and create your dream wardrobe. I can provide as much guidance as you'd like and am happy to share my favorite lingerie and clothing sources.

02

When you arrive

I will meet your anticipation and excitement (or nervousness) with a big hug and a glass of champagne! I understand that this is a BIG deal and I specialize in making you feel comfortable, empowered, beautiful and feminine - after all, you are my muse. 

03

The SESSION

Once you arrive, we will have some time to catch up and go over the flow of the session. We will shoot for about 90 minutes. This allows for a nice relaxed flow, giving you time to get comfortable. You have the option of 2-3 outfit changes and we will go at your pace. I'm there to be your hype gal and make certain you leave feeling like your on top of the world! 

04

How I shoot

I shoot a combination of both film and digital. This means that your images will have the most gorgeous tones and variations, highlighting all your best features. As an artist, it allows me to go a bit slower, compose my shots and connect with you more. All of your images (digital and film) will be delivered together as a full collection, in your virtual gallery so that you can order all your prints and album together.

05

Album & Print product design

You've invested your time, emotions (and money) on the most empowering images! Every curve, glance and wild inhibition have been captured for you! It's time to design your hand bound, archival album so that when you're 80 years old, flipping back through that pages you'll be reminded that you've always been a stone cold fox. A small part of my soul dies when photos stay hidden on a hard drive so let's make some art and adorn your home!

Why do you shoot film?

Film provides a tangible artistry to an intangible moment. It's ability to capture gorgeous skin tones and stunning light is unparallel. I could go on forver about my love for film. Ultimately, it allows me to be present in each moment, right alongside you.  I will often shoot on a variety of film cameras and digital at each event, seamlessly integrating the best tool for that moment. 

How would you describe your style?

I approach each portrait session  from a perspective of forever. I am a deep sentimentalist and this translates into my work as an incredible eye for detail and emotion. I love to documenting the raw beauty of YOU, while infusing an editorial quality to your images. I am drawn to nuance, tone, texture and evoking true art in each image. 

i'm nervous about posing!
will you help me?

Absolutely! I will be guiding, supporting, encouraging and loving you every step of the way. It is my job to make sure you not only look your best but feel comfortable and confident. We will go at the pace you set and we will communicate throughout your session about what feels comfortable and within your comfort zone. I understand how new this can all feel and I am there to not only make beautiful art with you but leave you with a new found confidence stepping back out into the world.

How much support do you offer in the planning process?

Honestly, as much or as little as you desire. I love guiding my clients as they formulate their details - from timelines to locations, right down to helping you select additional vendors. If you choose to work with a planner, we become a unified team and support you seamlessly, making the process as smooth as possible and dare I say....fun!

What if i need to cancel my session?

I understand that sometimes life happens. If a situation arises and you need to cancel your session, your payment will be applied towards a future session. No refunds are available.

Can I book with a friend?

Absolutely! If you and a friend both book, you'll each receive
$200 off your session 

DO YOU TRAvel for weddings & portrait sessions??

Yes, absolutely! I'm an extensive traveler and love nothing more than being inspired by new landscapes and cultures.
 

What is your pricing?

Over the years, I've learned that every celebration is different and comes with its own set of unique needs. Because of this, every wedding, elopement, and portrait session is quoted on an individual basis.
That said, full service wedding collections begin at an investment of $6,700. Contact me and I can send you a more specific outline of your investment once I know more about your needs.

How many images will we get?

Typically you will receive 70-100 final images for coverage hour

What are turnaround times for images?

My work is focused on creating exquisite art and using the finest methods and quality products. Turnaround times for engagement and portrait sessions average 4 to 5 weeks. Turnaround times for wedding images is 8 weeks.

Do you work with a second shooter?

It really depend on the details of your day! Much of my best work has come from shooting solo. That said, there are times when a skillful second shooter will help your day run much smoother. I always bring someone in, if I feel it will benefit your day.

Do you have liability insurance?

Absolutely! I am insured through PPA.
