hold up. I know you have a few questions first.
Where are you based? Do you travel?
I am based in beautiful Bozeman, Montana! I do travel! All travel costs, including mileage, airfare, hotel & rental car (if applicable) are covered by the client. However, please inquire for a custom quote.
Do I need to be in a relationship to do a boudoir shoot?
Absolutely not! Boudoir is rooted from a powerful womanly confidence, and that confidence comes from within you, not someone else.
How many images can I expect from my session?
The number of images varies from person to person and depending on the package you choose. I will choose the best images from the shoot. My hope is that you would trust me to capture our time together to the best that I can and I would choose the utmost best images from our time together. I promise you will have more than enough! Quality over quantity.
What should I wear?
First thing I always tell my clients is, wear pieces that make you feel comfortable and beautiful. Whatever that means for you. Whether it’s lingerie, a chunky sweaters, a leather jacket, your favorite dress, or a flannel; don't forget to stay true to your personal style. If you feel awesome then your photos will be awesome.
so uhm, is nude a thing?
All my boudoir sessions are photographed tastefully and as an art-form. I never want to push my clients to do anything they’re not comfortable with. I do ask that you trust me, to create beautiful, natural images that make you feel your very best. While most women are uneasy at first, these are always the images they end up loving, but please know there is also zero pressure. This is about what you want.
When can we expect our gallery?
I always send out sneak peaks within a week after the session. You can expect the rest anywhere between 2-3 weeks. If for some reason it would be longer; due to travel, or my busy season I will always inform you ahead of time.
Whats your stance on retouching?
If you wake up the morning of your session with a zit on your face, rest assured we can zap that rascal out. All the images you receive will be naturally edited, high resolution images. I will smooth out obvious blemishes, but I don't alter who you are - I will not slim your arms, and I won't make you four sizes smaller. This experience is about celebrating yourself and embracing your true authentic beauty at where you are at in life now; they're about being you and owning it! Raw, real, beautifully un-retouched you. My rule is non-permanent things like acne, bruises, cuts, etc., let's fix. Anything else, let's celebrate.
Should I get my hair + makeup professionally done?
For some of my clients, getting their hair and makeup done means one less thing for them to worry about. They feel beautiful and confident and it shows! It's completely up to you.
Where do you typically have the sessions?
Indoors + outdoors! For indoors; clean, minimal spaces with lots of natural light are best. Other options are renting out local Airbnb’s, a hotel room, or (my favorite) shooting outside. You can check out my blog post for more location ideas here.
i noticed there are photos of women on your insta + website. Will you share my images too?
Out of respect for my clients privacy I share images of women that have granted me permission. This is an extremely intimate experience and I by no means will cross any boundaries by showing your body all over the internet.
Do you offer any discounted rateS?
