- I have never done this before. Will you help me prepare for my shoot?
I will guide you through everything from picking the best outfits, posing and achieving your best look. I will send you a pdf with all the information you need for a successful shoot, I will guide you every step of the way.
- Do I get digital images with my final packages?
Yes. You will get all the digital photos that you purchase on a usb with their copyrights.
- How far in advance do I need to book my shoot?
I recommend that you book your shoot 5-6 weeks before you need your pictures. Albums may take up to 4-6 weeks to produce. If you need it sooner I will try to accommodate you and do rush service.
- Will you post my pictures online?
I would only use your pictures online or for marketing and advertising with your signed consent on a model release contract which is 100% optional.
- What if I am older and not my ideal weight?
I have photographed women from their early twenties to their late seventies. I have photographed women of all sizes and shapes. When I look at you through my lens I believe I can capture your inner and outer beauty no matter what your stage in life. My goal is that when you are in front of my camera you will experience how beautiful you really are.
-I have cellulite, stretch marks or bad skin. Can you fix that?
Yes. Removal of cellulite, acne and stretch marks are part of the retouching process and included in your purchase. We don't reshape or make people's body parts any other shape than normal.
- Where does the photography session take place?
In my studio in Carlsbad that I have set up for boudoir, branding and contemporary portraiture, I am also available for outdoor sessions and location destinations at an additional cost.
-Can I meet you and see the studio before my shoot?
Yes, of course. You can either come in for a personal consultation or we can do it by Zoom or FaceTime.
- Can I bring my husband or boyfriend to the shoot or viewing appointment?
No, I am sorry for boudoir pictures this is a strictly feminine environment. You are welcome to bring a female friend if you like.
- Do you provide outfits? Or do I bring my own?
I have a large collection of lingerie and outfits for portraiture for a small dry cleaning fee. Otherwise please bring at least 4-5 different outfits. The more you bring, the better I will be able to help you decide what to wear.
- I have never done this before and know nothing about posing or how to take a good photograph.
Don't worry, I will guide you through the entire process. That is what I am trained to do: all you need to do is relax and have fun.
