I am having boudoir photos taken as a gift. When should I schedule my session?
In order to guarantee you will receive your album in time, your session must be scheduled for 8 weeks
before your occasion date. However 4-6 weeks is the normal turn around from photo session to getting
your album. Photos are normally available to order prints from in 7-14 days.
Do you retouch photos?
Basic retouching is included in the cost of the session. Basic retouching includes removal of bruises,
cellulite, scars, acne, under eye circles. Basic retouching DOES NOT include changes to the shape of your
body, straightening or whitening of the teeth, tattoo removal, tan line removal, removal of tags in lingerie.
How many outfits should I bring?
We recommend no more than 5 outfits.
What types of outfits should I bring?
Above all, you should bring outfits that fit you well and make you feel confident. If there are areas of your
body you would prefer not to highlight in the photos, we recommend selecting outfits that hide or flatter
those areas. Don’t forget a pair of heels!
What do you think looks good in photos?
I like lacy boy shorts, corsets, little skirts, men’s button down shirts, fitted jeans, pearls, diamonds, and
little nighties. Be creative!

Please arrive at your designated session time. We ask that you do not arrive early to protect the privacy of

Unfortunately not. We narrow down your photos to the very best and then retouch and edit them to
perfection before you see them.
Do you have a package that includes a CD of high resolution images?
Because we are professional photographers, we have access to the finest photographic products available,
which are not available to consumers. We would like for you to have a professional end product, so
therefore do not offer a package with just a CD of images. If you can’t live without it, the CD may be
added to any package for an additional $499.

Given the sensitive nature of boudoir photography, boudoir photos are never posted without permission
