How it works | What to expect during your boudoir experience

I love to get on the phone with each and every one of you! Lets plan a time to chat here, it’s more fun than reading a boring blog post 😉

If you still feel like reading, here’s how it works.

#1. Phone Consultation

Upon your inquiry we will “meet” via phone or in person if you want to grab some coffee or a drink. This initial meeting is one of the most important steps. You get to hear my voice or meet me so you feel safe; we go over why you want a boudoir session, how you want to feel and where in on your walls you envision seeing a reminder to love yourself every day.

#2. Lingerie/Session Planning

After you book your date we can begin planning! I will send you some lingerie inspiration, hair and make up, decide on location and go over any reservations you are having.

#3. Hair & Make Up

On the morning of your session you will arrive for on location hair and make up (if you choose). We chat, listen to music, talk about self love & sip champagne. Hair and make up typically lasts 45 min – 1 hr.

#4. Photoshoot

Depending on the package you chose we will spend approximately 30 mins in each outfit, typically 1+ hours of shooting time. I will guide you where to go, where to look, where to touch, help you relax and move through each pose. Be ready to pop your booty and arch your back! Most importantly, I help you learn to relax and let your body flow.

#5. Guided Ordering Session

It’s time to get excited! This is where you use your credit to go shopping! You get to see your images within a few days or even a few hours after your session. I put together a slideshow of all your images and you get to choose your favorites! Once you select your favorites you will pick out art for your walls & an album. We also decide whether or not you would like to release your photos for public viewing.

#6. Image Reveal/Artwork Pick Up

Okay I lied… NOW it’s time to get excited. ARTWORK PICK UP DAY! This is the special day where you get to see your beauty printed in large scale and perfectly placed inside your album. We pop some more champagne and you take your art home and tap into that feeling over and over each time you look at your photos.
