Privacy + FAQ


First of all, no images are ever shared without my clients’ written consent. The images on this site are real clients, not models I have received consent from each woman to post her images. I do not publish any images without the client’s written consent. Some clients are excited to share and show off their beautiful images and others may not be in the position to share due to professional or community commitments. No matter what you decide I will fully respect your decision.

I have earned a great reputation for being discreet with my clientele. No matter if you are a celebrity or the girl next door your images are safe with me. I value your privacy. I know it is a lot to ask someone to trust me so I do have a nondisclosure agreement we can sign upon request.

{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 boudoir 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. There is a list of great places to shop online at the bottom of this page. You may read more on this topic HERE.

Do you shoot in a 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 of 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.

Do you offer couples boudoir and/or male boudoir?
I do not offer couples or male boudoir. I love nothing more than empowering women with boudoir and found that couples and/or male boudoir has a different vibe and is not something I want to offer.

Can my boyfriend/husband come to my shoot with me?
Men are not allowed at the photo shoot. Boyfriends and husbands are a big distraction, this is why they are not allowed at your shoot. They can come with you and wait in the lobby or at the bar if you feel safer having them escort you to the shoot location.

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 give written permission.

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. Retouching clothing and/or jewelry is not included. 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! For larger packages purchased the session may be longer.

Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I offer 6-month interest-free payment plans through 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 from serving 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 your 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 feel confident and relaxed for your session.

Do you provide props?
I have a few statement necklaces and body chains and I have a couple of leather body harnesses I can provide upon request. For bridal boudoir, I have several veils I can provide (upon request) in case you do not have one yet. You are welcome to bring small props. My Beauty Prep Guide has some ideas on props you can include.

What should I wear?
I have a BEAUTY PREP 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 not have thought of. I also have several blog posts on what to wear. Just hop on my Boudoir BLOG to read them.

You can find even more wardrobe inspiration over on my Pinterest.
