Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE DO YOUR SHOOTS TAKE PLACE?

Sessions take place in an all inclusive boutique studio located in Kernersville, North Carolina.  Location is right off business 40 and local to hotels, dining, and shopping.

DO ALL SESSIONS INCLUDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?

Yes, every single session includes professional makeup including false lashes and hair styling.

DOES THE SESSION FEE INCLUDE ANY PRODUCTS AT ALL?

No.  Your session fee covers one on one session guidance and prep, use of our luxury studio, professional styling (multiple hair and makeup looks) and up to four wardrobe changes the day of your shoot.  No photos or products are included in this price but can be ordered a la carte with no minimum purchase amount.

HOW LONG WILL OUR SHOOT LAST?

I would allow around 3 hours from start to finish. Makeup application will take about an hour and I spare a little time for travel and relocation. My shoots generally last for about an hour and a half to two and a half hours.

DO YOU HAVE TO POST MY PHOTOS ONLINE?

Absolutely not! While your boudoir experience is very laid back and fun,  I completely understand one wanting their photos to stay private. I am completely understanding of this and there will never be pressure to have your photos shared anywhere online.  Just let me know you would rather your images stay private and no one, online or offline, will see them!  All boudoir photos are stored on my computer in a password protected folder and are only posted online after I have been given permission from my clients.

DO I BRING MY OWN CLOTHES AND PROPS OR DO YOU BRING THEM?

While I do have an extensive wardrobe that is available for clients to use, it is up to you to provide your wardrobe and then use my pieces as you’d like.  If you have a specific idea for a look but don’t own the proper things then feel free to ask me what I have because I might just have what you’re looking for.  Please note that everything I bring is washed after each session and if you choose to wear a pair of panties or bottoms I have then you must also wear a pair of your own under them for sanitation reasons.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND ALONG?

As of 2018 we sadly are no longer allowing friends to accompany clients. We have found more times than not that this tends to make clients more uncomfortable in the end and unable to fully relax and enjoy their experience. Boudoir is vulnerable in nature and we really want all clients to receive the best from their session and we want to ensure our attention is 100% on you and likewise.

DO YOU HAVE A CONTRACT?

There is a contract that I have all of my clients sign. It basically protects both of us against fraud or negligence. In short, it states that all images remain copy written to me and that neither of us will sell or make profit on the images without prior written consent from myself. It also states that no poses or ideas were forced upon client or photographer. You will sign your contract virtually at the time of paying your retainer to book your session.

DO YOU SHOOT COUPLES BOUDOIR?

I do not shoot couples boudoir.  It is a personal preference and while there are other photographers out there that do and may be a better photographer for you, I have chosen not to shoot couple’s boudoir.

DO YOU SHOOT BOUDOIR FOR MEN?

boudoir
1777, “room where a lady may retire to be alone,” from Fr. boudoir (18c.)

By definition, boudoir is naturally a setting for a lady.  When it comes down to basics, I suppose it doesn’t matter what name you put on it, though.  In short, I do not shoot “boudoir” for men.  It is a personal preference and while there are other photographers out there that do and may be a better photographer for you, I have chosen not to shoot men’s “boudoir”.
