I do have a client closet, however, I suggest bringing a bra and underwear set you love and possibly a lingerie piece you love! Even though there is a lot to choose from in the closet, everyone has different comfort levels and different brands fit differently. If you would like help in purchasing something for your session, I am here to help! Don’t hesitate to ask any questions!

CAN I BRING A FRIEND OR PARTNER FOR SUPPORT?

 

No, I don’t allow guests to accompany you. I understand you may feel strange meeting me for the first time, but I promise I will put you at ease. We will become fast friends! We have time to get to know each other during hair and makeup.

 

DO I HAVE TO DO NUDE PHOTOS?

 

Absolutely not! This session is for you and your comfort level. And you can change your mind at any point during the session. I only do artistically tasteful nudes.

 

WILL MY IMAGES BE RETOUCHED?

 

I take pride in my commitment to preserving the authenticity of your body. I do not alter body shapes. Yes, I do smooth out and reduce/remove pimples, bruises, cuts. All figures are embraced as they are! There is some skin smoothing. I do not fix tan lines, pubic hair, or change features. I celebrate and highlight your natural beauty! You are perfect as you are!

 

DO YOU SHARE MY IMAGES ONLINE?

 

I respect your privacy! I have different options for sharing your photos with your explicit consent. 1. Full Release. 2. No nudes, but anything else is good. 3. No face shots, anonymous only! 4. No sharing at all! I appreciate even an anonymous release so I can share content, as that is how I get more business.

 

DO YOU HAVE A REFERRAL PROGRAM?

 

Yes! I LOVE referrals! You can earn credits for referring friends who book a session, adding friends to my Facebook group, and writing a review. You can use credits towards a session in the future or buy more products from your previous session.

 

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

 

We offer various payment options. A booking retainer is required to secure your shoot. Any collections or a la carte items can be purchased on a pre-payment plan. I offer a perk with a pre-payment plan. Ask me about the details.
