YES! My specialty is photographing WOMEN-- in ANY level of dress or undress. Those who shy away from being photographed nude, in lingerie, etc, might be more comfortable with an off-shoulder blouse and jeans...which totally fine! This is more beauty portraiture style which I love as well :-)
The majority of my shoots take place in my private studio in Watertown, MA. It is full of natural light and can be customized to fit each client's vision. I am available for travel depending on the location and other client details.
Your images will never (EVER!) be posted on my website or social media without your permission. After your shoot, we’ll review your images together and you can say yes or no. I am totally cool either way. There won’t be any pressure to share your personal images unless you are 100% on board.
Depending on when you want your images, I recommend that clients book their shoots at least 6-8 weeks before they will be needing their images, to allow enough time with the editing and printing of products. If you need a faster turnaround time, my digital collection can be ready within 7-14 days.
I offer in-person image reveal and ordering appointment within 3-7 days of your photo session. Together we will look through your images one-by-one and you will select your final images. You will then choose whichever products you'd like to order and make your purchase!
I encourage you to primarily bring your own selection of outfits and any props that you'd like to use. That’s the best way to ensure everything fits really well and that you love the way you look in your outfits. With that said, I will have a few staples on hand should the need arise! Always bring more than the suggested number of outfits that come with your package. You never know what you'll be feeling on the day of your shoot so we can decide on everything together. Also bring along any potential props that are meaningful to you (or your significant other) such as button down shirt, flannel shirt, sports jersey, necklace, hat, sports equipment--I even had one client bring her husband's snowboard!
Don't stress! You are not on your own. I will help you choose outfits that make you feel sexy and comfortable. I provide wardrobe guidance to assist you in finding items you love, in colors that are flattering and make sure that they fit you properly. Look for things you might already have in your closet, like a clingy sweater, bodysuit, robe, bra and panty sets. Lingerie is always popular, but many women choose to shoot completely nude or implied nude during their shoot. But remember, boudoir DOES NOT always mean nude or lingerie--you can be as covered as you'd like!
Don’t worry – I will coach you through every single pose during your session, all the way down to your fingertips and toes. I offer plenty of direction to achieve the most flattering angles and poses to ensure you look (and feel!) your best. However, keep in mind that posing will NOT feel like just another afternoon of lounging around on your bed. I usually say that if the pose feels a little weird and uncomfortable, you're probably doing it right and will be sore the next day--but it's totally worth it for the AMAZING photos!
Absolutely not! Your body should be celebrated. I believe ALL women are gorgeous and my passion is not only celebrating that but also facilitating the act of YOU celebrating it. You are worthy of being seen, regardless of your body type. With that said, we all have insecurities. I work with clients to find the most flattering poses and lighting to highlight their best features. While I do not "thin out" clients in photoshop, I do retouch selected images. I can smooth skin, remove scars as requested, acne, blemishes, stretch marks and cellulite in addition to bruises and other random marks you may have on the day of your session.
You’re welcome to bring a friend for the makeup and hair portion of your session to toast you with a glass of champagne! For the shoot itself, I do not allow anyone else to be present. Even a best friend can be distracting because the attention isn’t completely on you. While I’m photographing your session, your friend can grab coffee or go shopping just a few minutes away!
I do! Usually 1-2 times a year I offer special rates so make sure to follow me on Instagram and subscribe to my monthly newsletters to stay up-to-date with all my promotions!
Due to the custom nature of photography, the session fee is non-refundable. With that said, I am fully aware and understand that LIFE HAPPENS. If you need to reschedule, I require a minimum of 14 days notice without being charged a rescheduling fee unless COVID-19 related.
