DO YOU TRAVEL?
Absolutely! I currently service the DC, Maryland & Virginia areas; however, if you live outside of those locations - please reach out! I am happy to travel to you!
WHAT ABOUT MY FLAWS?
Listen, we all feel we have flaws - but I'm here to tell you that you are absolutely gorgeous, AS YOU ARE, right now. As for editing, I do skin retouching such as blemish removal, skin smoothing, as well as light and color adjustments to enhance your beautiful self - but I will not make you someone or something that you're not. I do not change your body with photoshop. You are absolutely perfect, and that's what I want to show you!
WHAT DO I WEAR?
The decision of shopping for your session might be the most difficult part of your session, there are SO many choices - it's hard to narrow it down. That's where I come in. Once you've booked, I will send over a guide that will help you choose what outfits to bring out of hiding that you may already own, or what to purchase if you want something new. It will also go through how to prepare so you feel ready for your session.
I ask that you bring lots of options with you to the session, and I will style you upon arrival.
Wardrobe choices can be almost anything, but most often range from babydoll gowns, lingerie, oversized t-shirts, bralettes, fishnet pantyhose, or nothing at all. During your consultation we'll go over what you're most comfortable with. There are clients who prefer to be covered, and there are others who want a nude session - and everywhere in between. It truly all depends upon who this gift is for, be it yourself or someone else, and who they are to you.
If you still have questions, or need help with anything - I am available to FaceTime with you (or WhatsApp if you're an Android fan) to help with anything you might need!
I'M SHY, WILL THAT SHOW IN MY PHOTOS? WILL I LOOK NERVOUS?
Boudoir is such an empowering experience, it builds so much confidence in those that partake in it. Of course trying something new naturally makes most a bit nervous, and that's okay! You're not doing it alone, you have me - I'm here to help you through the experience, pose you, help you relax and coach you through the session. I adore boudoir, so I hope that you'll feed off of my enthusiasm during the session... though, the champagne helps, too!
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
My home studio is located in Annapolis, Maryland. I also have a list of perfect studios, hotels or Air BnB's should you wish for a different look for your session. That said, the additional cost of utilizing these spaces is the responsibility of the client.
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes! Absolutely! A boudoir session is an investment and often times that warrants a payment plan of sorts to ensure that you get what you truly want from your session, and aren't left feeling like you want more.
I offer pre-payment plans, in which we determine which package you'd like to go with prior to your session and set up a payment plan. This package can be changed at your viewing session! Any additional cost will be due at that time payable via cash, or credit card. Once the pre-payments are completed, your session takes place and we begin the design and ordering of your products. Prints will be to you in around 2 weeks, while albums and boxes can take upwards of 3-4 weeks. *Rush orders are available.
There's nothing worse than having your session and having to wait months and months to see the final product - because you're amidst a post-payment plan.

DO I DO MY OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Your session is an experience. Professional hair and makeup is provided for all sessions and is included in your session fee. All you have to do is show up, with a bare face and clean hair.
HOW DO I KNOW THIS IS RIGHT FOR ME?
The fact of the matter is, boudoir is for everyone! If you are a woman who wishes to love herself well, this is absolutely for you! You should book your session for you - that's the most important part-that you want rediscover your beauty. Often times these sessions are a gift, which is totally amazing-but it needs to be something that comes from your heart and desires for you, too! Your race, height, weight, age, or any other circumstance - none of it matters! You are absolutely gorgeous as you are! (Stop rolling your eyes, it's true!)
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The photo portion of the session will take up to two hours; however, hair and makeup can also take up to two hours. I recommend planning to be with me/us for up to four hours. Once the session is completed, I'll send you off for lunch - and you'll come back after to review all the gorgeousness we just created!
