Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance do I need to book?
Most women like to book their boudoir shoot anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months ahead of time. That way they can plan their outfits and get ready for their shoot. That being said, some women want to come in as soon as possible for an anniversary gift or something similar.
Do you provide hair and makeup?
We do offer professional hair and makeup services that are done here at the studio directly before your shoot. These services are an additional $149. If you are interested in having hair and makeup done we need to pre-arrange that at least 2 weeks before your shoot so that I can confirm one of my top professional hair and makeup artists for your shoot. This is something we will discuss when we book your shoot.
What services, packages and products are available?
We do offer beautiful photo albums in different sizes as well as folio boxes, individual digital images, wall art and other specialty gift items for you to order a la carte after your shoot. There are samples of those items in the studio for you to view when you are here for your shoot.
I have stretch marks and/or cellulite. Are the photos that I’ll see photoshopped?
When you come into see all of your photos, everything you’ll see will be professionally retouched appropriately to emphasize your beauty and femininity but not change who you are. Being said that, you’d be surprised what great posing and lighting can do straight out of camera. During your session, I tend to show you the back of the camera so you can see in real time how amazing you look!
All the women I see on your site look like models…I’m definitely not a model.
All the women you see on our website are definitely not professional models LOL! Posing and lighting is an ART. The women you see are soccer moms, stay at home moms, teachers, lawyers, brides, etc. They are real women just like you who all had the same thoughts, nerves, insecurities, and hesitations you may be having as well. Lucky for you, that’s half my job is to make sure you feel completely comfortable before, during and after your photo shoot to ensure your experience is one you’ll never forget and want to do time and time again. During your boudoir session you’ll quickly find out that you’ll never be put on the spot. Part of my job as a professional boudoir photographer is to guide you from head to toe into the perfect looks and expressions to naturally make you look stunning.
My spouse or special somebody is in the military and overseas and I can’t send actual prints or an album?
We hear this a lot and have the perfect options that will allow you to send a private app to his phone with all of your favorite photos and even video if you choose! And if you want to book multiple sessions with us, and then have his app updated each time with all the new photos and video, you’ll be able to take advantage of our great repeat discounts and special gifts.
Do you give a discount for groups or do you ever do boudoir parties?
Yes and YES! If you have a group of women (say a bachelorette party perhaps) we’ll give a discount for each session fee and usually have your session in a spacious hotel suite, or even a beautiful Airbnb depending on how many are in your group? Everybody will have beautiful images for themselves, and plenty of fun group shots as well. All viewing sessions will be held separately though.
Are you going to put my photos up on social media?
We do have a basic portrait contract and model release we’ll have you sign where you can choose whether or not you will allow certain, any, or NO photos to be used in our marketing materials. Generally what we use for social marketing though you’ve probably already noticed how I crop the images so you can’t tell who it is and also remove any unique markings or tattoos to help conceal identity. Any images you see showing any faces, we have been given full permission to use and share.
Where will my photos be taken? Where do I get hair/makeup done?
Unless you specify something different, your boudoir photos will be done here at our studio located on Snoqualmie Ridge. That’s also where your hair and makeup will be done. So you will just come on in at your scheduled time and date and just relax, have fun, and enjoy the entire pampered experience while we create beautiful, sexy, classy images that you will be in LOVE with forever!!!
What forms of payment are accepted?
We accept Cash, Check, or major Credit Cards. We can either take payment in person, over the phone, or send an email invoice to pay quickly and securely online.
This is something that I REALLY want to do but not sure if I can afford it?
We completely understand which is why we not only have options for different budgets, but also offer payment plans to make it as easy as possible to get whatever you want!
Is a deposit required?
We do require a 50% retainer fee in order to secure your time slot in our studio, then the remainder is due one week before your shoot. A lot of work goes into planning your shoot, so it’s important that we know you are serious about your boudoir photo shoot.
What type of editing is included in the edited images I’ll see?
The type of editing you can expect to see in your photos include skin airbrushing to soften wrinkles and skin imperfections, blemish & bruise removal, brightening the eyes, whitening the teeth & cellulite smoothing along with subtle and natural body contouring. However, I strive to create images that are beautiful of you and your body without needing to change the shape of your body. But, if something is really bugging you, I do offer other advanced photoshop techniques for an hourly fee.
