Your images will be shared online:

Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us.  For this reason, none of your images will be shared online unless you sign written permission for us to do so.  

There is of course never any pressure to share your images online.

Everyone has their own personal reason for stepping out and sharing their images.  One of the most common reasons that I hear is that it feels liberating!  When you share your photographs with the public, you are owning your image which is an incredibly empowering and confidence-building step outside of your norm.

Another common reason is that sharing your images helps our studio amplify our mission of empowering women.  We quite literally could not do what we do without you ladies and it’s always an honor to know that you are proud enough of your images to share them with the world.

When you decide to share your photos, you are encouraging countless other women to step out of their comfort zones and book a boudoir experience for themselves.  An experience that will change the way that they see themselves forever!

You have to go nude for your session:

Going nude for your session is TOTALLY optional!  If you feel comfortable enough to bare it all, that’s wonderful.  And if you’d rather stick to wardrobe pieces, that’s also perfect. 

When thinking about going nude for some of your images, keep in mind that our studio specializes in creating Tasteful Nude Boudoir Images that are so much more than just ‘sexy’ photos.  Naturally, these photos will be sexy, but they will also be pieces of fine art that capture your divine feminine elegance and natural beauty.

If you are curious about going nude in your images, you can absolutely wait until your photo shoot to make that decision.  There is something so liberating about having photos taken nude, but only when it’s done from a foundation of trust and comfort.  Trust your gut, don’t pressure yourself and do what feels right to you.

You have to feel comfortable in front of the camera:

This one couldn’t be farther from the truth!  You do not have to feel comfortable in front of the camera to do a boudoir shoot.  In fact, most of our clients tell me during their initial phone consultation that they feel they are awkward in front of the camera or that they aren’t photogenic. Precisely why they are hiring a professional to pose them to make them look and feel like a Queen.

During your photo shoot, I will be directing you through every single pose- micro-posing you from head to toe in fact, so all you have to do is follow my directions, hold the pose, breathe and trust the process.

Many of my clients tell me that they never saw a photo of themselves that they liked until they saw their boudoir images.  Comments like this break my heart and remind me why I do what I do.  Your boudoir experience will expedite your journey to radical self-love by showing you the unconditional beauty that you possess. 

One of the most empowering things about your boudoir experience is that no matter how you arrive on session day, you will leave knowing what it’s like to feel 100% confident with a camera pointed at you.  Which is something that may be hard to imagine if you’ve never had a session with us before!

I get that the women in our images may look like they are world-class models (and to me they are), but the truth is they are women just like you. Many have never had professional photos taken before and most were a ball of nerves up until we started shooting.  So no matter what your comfort level is with having your photo taken, I’ve got you, babe…
