We work with only the best artists and they know exactly how to make sure you are camera-ready for your big day. Every-day styling is much different than getting ready for a photo session, and putting that important aspect into the hands of a professional is the best way to ensure we get the best images we can. They can match your skin tone, nail the look you want, and work with all kinds of skin. Not only that, but being pampered and treated like royalty sets the stage for an incredible day! Let's face it, most of us don't spend a lot of time giving ourselves more than we need. Having a moment where you get to FEEL as special as you ARE is important, and what this session is all about!

You don't need to know worry about a thing, you just simply need to show up for the session and trust my process. I WANT you to look your best, and I will always make sure you do! I have years of training in posing (starting with a decade of rigorous ballet training in my youth), and I will always ensure you are posed in the most flattering ways under the most flattering lighting. Once it's time for your shoot, I'll ask you to do simple things like "bring your shoulder towards me," or "bring your chin forward a bit," or "look up with your eyes," etc. It's SUPER simple and, again, you don't need to do any practice or preparing for this. All bodies are different and what works for some might not work for all. My sessions with HUNDREDS of women have given me the tools to make sure we get images that make you feel your very best!

We'll sit down and finalize our outfit and styling choices together, as well as go over any last-minute paperwork. We'll get you into hair and makeup, which generally takes about 90-minutes. Next, we move into our shooting space and shoot for about one hour. Afterwards, we take a quick break. This is where I will pull the best images from your shoot and you can relax in the studio, check out our samples, and take a selfie or two. We will choose your favorite images together, decide what products you'd like to order, and handle any other details! In total, it's around four hours of fun, empowerment, and just feeling GREAT!

A: While I generally speak to women because that has been my personal journey, I am open to anyone who wants to enjoy the life-changing experience of a boudoir session in my studio, I have worked with women, men, non-binary individuals, as well as couples in the past. Q: Do I have to pay all at once? A: Nope! We offer convenient, interest-free pre-payment plans to help space out the investment cost of our premium product collections; there are even bonus options for paying early! We also offer PayPal Credit the day of your session, which allows you to pay PayPal back with no interest over six months, while you're considered paid-in-full with us. Q: Do you have a mobility-friendly location or shoot outside of your studio? A: While our main studio is a beautiful upstairs loft in the heart of our historic downtown, we can secure a handicap-accessible location with enough notice, and we are open to talk about shooting in your home or another location of your finding. Q: Will you share my photos? A: Absolutely not; our clients are considered private unless written permission is given after your session. We will never share your photos. Q: Do you shoot outdoors? A: We prefer to shoot indoors for several reasons, and do not generally plan outdoor sessions due to tight schedules and not being able to control the weather. Q: I'm not into lingerie; can I still do a boudoir session? A: We firmly believe nobody should attempt to fit into a box, and love celebrating unique differences in our clients!
