Q: WHERE WILL MY SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
A: I love photographing boudoir sessions at our Elmhurst studio. It is a bright, neutral space with white walls, fun chairs, a couch and a bed set. Or if you prefer to have your session at your home / apartment or a hotel, I am happy to photograph you in your favorite space.
Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?
Please bring your own lingerie that you feel amazing in. I recommend you bring at least three options and some non-lingerie pieces like a cozy sweater, chiffon robe, nude heels and dainty jewelry.
If you need inspiration, you can check out our pinterest board. Bodysuits are a fun non-lingerie option that are just as playful and sexy as a lacey bra and panty set. The studio does have a small collection of floral crowns, body suits and robes in the studio that you are also welcome to use.
Q: WHERE DO YOU RECOMMEND I FIND MY BOUDOIR LINGERIE?
Some of my favorite places for beautiful lingerie include Nordstrom, Victoria Secret, Forever 21, and Journelle. Remember, everything doesn’t have to be lingerie, so grab your favorite cozy sweater and bodysuit or bring along your favorite satin pj set.
Q: HOW EXPOSED WILL I BE? IS THAT UP TO ME?
A: This is your shoot, and I want you to feel your best. I encourage you to wear what you feel most confident and comfortable in. Sexy comes in many different forms.
Q: HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY SHOOT?
A: We will send over a guide to get you ready + excited for your shoot. Remember to wear loose clothing before your shoot to avoid clothing lines when you slip into your lingerie. Drink lots of water before your shoot, and consider having your hair and makeup professionally done.
Q: DO YOU DO RETOUCHING ON ACNE, CELLULITE, ETC?
A: I believe every woman is beautiful just the way she is. I will edit anything that would be gone in one week (i.e. pimples, scratches, bruises). For any additional retouching, there is a small fee.
Q: HOW SHOULD I DO MY HAIR + MAKEUP? CAN I HAVE SOMEONE DO IT FOR ME?
A : Get dolled up! Wear a little more makeup then you are used to. I promise it looks great on camera, and flash lashes always look amazing for boudoir shoots.
You can add on professional makeup on site at the studio for +110. Or feel free to get glammed up prior to coming to the studio.
Q: I’M NOT COMFORTABLE SHARING MY IMAGES ONLINE. IS THAT REQUIRED TO WORK WITH YOU?
A: All of your images are kept 100% private (down to your password protected online gallery) and images are never shared without your permission. If you are ok with me sharing some of your images (especially ones where you are not recognizable), I would love to include them in my portfolio.
