where are you based?
I am based in Overland Park, Kansas, serving the Kansas City metropolitan area and beyond.
how long is a photo session?
A regular photo session last about 3 to 4 hours. The morning starts with hair and makeup application at 8:30am. I try to start shooting at 10am in the morning follows by a short lunch break at noon. Session usually ends at about 2pm but I would suggest you to not arrange any important appointments before 4pm in case the session runs longer than expected.
how many images do you produce from a session?
That depends on what products that you are planning to get. For a portrait box package you will get a gallery of 25-30 images, whereas for keepsake album and ultimate boudoir packages you will get about 60-80 images in a gallery.
I am not good at posing. Will you guide me?
Don't worry about that at all. I will be guiding and posing you throughout the session, including your facial expressions! It's my job to make sure you feel confident and natural. Just be yourself!
why do you collect a $300 commitment fee?
This is to encourage clients to commit to their scheduled appointments. Photoshoot slots are limited and can fill up very quickly especially months leading to holiday or wedding season. The fee is non-refundable but can be applied towards product purchase.
do you offer payment plan?
Yes, up to three months! Your orders will be placed once the final payment is received.
do you provide hair and makeup service?
Hair and makeup application is included in the ultimate boudoir package. If your package does not include hair and makeup application you can request one with an extra cost of $150. I work closely with a few local hair and makeup artists but you are welcome to bring your own too. I strongly recommend professional hair and makeup service for your photoshoot due to the extra confidence boost that you will get.
do you do nude photography?
Not at this time. However I do sometimes incorporate implied nude into my shoots, like those you see in my boudoir gallery, as long as you are comfortable with it.
do you also photograph men?
No, but with a few exceptions. I photograph my husband once in a while and male models for personal projects.
will you use my images on your website, social media accounts or for marketing purpose?
I sure love to share your images with other women to make them feel encouraged. However I value your privacy and would only share them with your permission.
