Want to schedule a boudoir session, but not feeling your current body? It's normal, love! Almost all my clients are where you are now.
For as long as I can recall I have watched women (mostly) be objectified and body shamed! I am a strong believer that all humans are beautiful! Each of us has a god/goddess inside that sometimes we lose - or maybe we never found. My goal is to show everyone their best self; their inner god/goddess.
One thing that I hear all the time is "I need to lose 30 pounds first" or "I need to lose this baby weight". Your body right now, at this very moment , is a boudoir body. You are absolutely perfect the way you are. Seriously, you really are! If society has made you believe otherwise, it's time you tell it to kiss your ass!
Before your boudoir session you will receive a questionnaire form and a couple prep guides. This will cover common questions, details & tips for the big day, my favorite links for where to shop and what to wear, as well as some basic questions to help me get to know you a little more. It's packed full of the best information to fully prepare for an experience you are sure to love! (& Of course, you can also reach directly out to me if you need more assistance!)
The day of your boudoir session a fabulous hair & makeup artist(s) will pamper you. (No, you can't take them home with you.) They will enhance your natural beauty all while you relax. When you're all done we will look over your outfits to decide which ones are most flattering (I also have a large client closet for you to borrow from). We will discuss any inspirational poses you have in mind or saved to your phone, but I will be here to direct and pose you to flatter your body. So no stress! (I even coach you on facial expressions!) *Disclaimer: I just want you to know that you (and I) will be sore the next day, posing is a tough workout.* When I start photographing you ,it's okay to be nervous! All of my clients feel that way at first, but after a few sneak peek's at the back of my camera, and some of my silliness, you will be laughing and having so much fun! I promise!
After the boudoir session I will send you out for quick bite to eat, while I edit the images! Once I have finished, I will invite you to the reveal of your private gallery. This is when you start choosing your favorites! (Which will most likely be all of them!) During this time, we will set down together and go over your images, detailed pricing and what products make the most sense for you! You have a lot of different options and I even offer pre-session payment plans to help make sure you get exactly what you want!
"Hope makes you feel comfortable, walks you thru posing and will be your biggest cheerleader thru the whole experience. I wouldn't hesitate to do another session and already want to schedule again! Thank you Hope for helping me to find beauty in the skin I'm in!"

"Things I have always heard about myself and I thought because someone thought they were true meant they were. Hope showed me that they are wrong! ...she made me feel confident and safe! She didn't push me to do anything I wasn't comfortable with. And these pictures!!!!! ...I feel so sexy! So empowered! So confident! So strong!"

Yes! professional hair and makeup is included in the Session Fee! You’ll arrive to the Studio with a clean, moisturized face and clean, dry hair. We have everything we will need here in the Studio, including a lifetime supply of eyelashes! Haha.
I recommend having 3-5 outfits for your shoot, but that can be any combination of outfits you bring or options I already have available in the Studio client closet.
Nope! it's COMPLETELY optional!
a PRE-session payment plan is available to you! we set up a CUSTOMIZED payment plan leading up to your shoot based on which Collection you think you may be interested in purchasing.
a little bit of Photoshop, typically some skin smoothing or bags under the eyes. Nothing too crazy, but a little bit goes a long way!
Albums, metal prints, Diamond blocks, digitals & so much more!
I have all the samples of our products in the Studio! So when you come in for your session you’ll be able to see and touch everything.
I always demonstrate every single pose for my clients myself. including what to do with your hands & your feet. I will even be walking you through your facial expressions, too!
