FAQ’s

{Frequently asked questions}

Are you the photographer? Will any men be present?
I am a female photographer, and my stylist is also a woman. And no men will be present. I hear from a lot of clients the first question their significant other asks is “who took these?!” Whew! You can say a female photographer did.

Do you offer on-location hair and makeup?
My packages include professional hair and make-up artist. Know that your hair and make-up are as important to me as they are to you. My professional H&MUA will talk to you about a look that is just right for your photographs. We want you to love the way you look, whether it’s a “natural” or “dramatic” look.

I do not look like the women on your website. Is a shoot for me?
Yes! The women you see on my website are just everyday women and are not models. My photo shoots are for every woman, every shape, size, color, age and etc… You are beautiful just the way you are and I want to prove it to you.

Do you provide lingerie for the shoot?
It is best for you to bring items of your own because they will fit you best. I highly recommend you try on all your items pre-shoot to ensure they fit you well. Clothing that is too tight or too loose cannot be photoshopped. I will give you a suggested list of items to bring. You should bring more items than we will use so I can do a wardrobe consultation with you to choose the best outfits for the session.

Do you shoot in studio or on location? And is there an additional location fee?
I shoot all on location. It makes my photography stand out above the rest and gives you a huge variety in looks. What you see in my galleries is all photographed at hotels, beautiful private properties, and other select locations. There is no additional location fee unless you want to shoot at your own location.

I do not know how to pose. Will you help with that?
I will show you all the sexy poses, so don’t worry about “modeling.” I know this kind of shoot can be intimidating, but I promise it will be fun and easy. By the end of the shoot, you will feel like a celebrity. All of the women on my website are real clients, not models so you can see the transformation of a girl next door to sexy vixen.

Will my photos be on your website?
I do not share any client images without written permission. I understand some women have careers or community commitments that keep them from being able to share images. I respect your privacy and will only share images if you wish.

Do you retouch the images?
Yes, retouching is included. At the session, I will show you a demo on my iPad of what retouching is about. Basic retouching is included; stuff like cellulite, blemishes, and skin-smoothing is included. Extensive retouching, such as Photoshop magic to make you lose 20 pounds, is an additional charge because of how much time it takes. If you have a specific retouching question please email me and I will be happy to answer it for you.

How long does the session take?
The session takes about two-three hours. I know, it sounds long but time flies by!

Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I offer 12-month interest-free payment plans as well as PayPal credit. Ask me for more details…

Do you provide Champagne or alcohol to calm my nerves?
Unfortunately, my insurance does not allow me to serve alcohol. Also, state laws prohibit a business to serve alcohol without a license. But you are welcome to bring alcohol with you. We can use it as a photo prop too.

May I bring a friend to my shoot?
A female friend can join you while you have hair and makeup done but once we start shooting they will need to leave or wait in the car. I shoot 360 so it is difficult to keep moving someone out of the background. I promise I will help you will feel confident and relaxed for your session.

Do you provide props?
I can provide a few statement necklaces and for brides, I have several veils I can provide in case you do not have one yet. You are welcome to bring small props. My Beauty Guide has some ideas on props you can include.

What should I wear?
I have a BEAUTY GUIDE I will send to you upon booking. It includes many great tips and wardrobe suggestions for your session, plus it answers questions you may have not thought of. For most women this is a once in a lifetime photoshoot,  Why not choose the best – Couture Boudoir!
