Embarking on a journey of self-expression through a photoshoot is an exciting venture, but it often comes with its fair share of questions and uncertainties. Here, I address the top 12 frequently asked questions to ensure you feel informed, empowered, and confident every step of the way.

1. Do you share my images?
Your privacy and comfort are paramount. Following your session, you’ll receive a form to choose your sharing preferences, whether full, partial, anonymous, or no sharing. Your decision is respected, and you’ll have ample time to review your images before choosing.

2. Do I have to wear lingerie?
Absolutely not! Your comfort is key. Feel free to express yourself in whatever attire makes you feel confident and empowered. Whether it’s a cozy sweater, knee-high boots, or a stunning piece from my client closet, the choice is entirely yours.

3. Do you have payment plans?
Yes! I understand the importance of flexibility. Payment plans tailored to your needs are available, allowing you to pay weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Plus, early payment unlocks exclusive perks, making your experience even more rewarding. Some of these perks are products worth up to $400!

4. Is hair and makeup included?
Indeed! Our skilled makeup artist will pamper you with professional hair and makeup services, ensuring you look and feel your best. Just arrive with clean, dry hair and a fresh face, and leave the rest to us.

5. Do you photoshop my images?
My philosophy revolves around enhancing your natural beauty. While preserving your unique features, I’ll delicately retouch anything temporary (blemishes, bug bites, bruises, etc.). Your authenticity is celebrated, and I want you to love your images just as you are.

6. Where should I buy my outfits from?
Explore my studio options to simplify your lingerie planning. Borrow from my curated client closet or browse the stylish pieces for purchase. The inventory constantly changes, so I recommend scheduling a private shopping appointment to find the perfect attire for your session day.

Samples of nearly everything will be available for you to see and feel when making your selections.

8. Do you offer digitals?
Yes! Most of my collections include matching digital files for printed items, providing versatility and convenience. Preserve your cherished moments in both physical and digital formats.
