DO YOU POST MY IMAGES ONLINE?
We never post anything without your permission and a signed model release. We know boudoir photography produces intimate images and we would never put up anything without your consent. All the images you see online are images that our clients have graciously allowed us to share.

Concerned about stretch marks, cellulite or blemishes?
The Boudoir Studio does light retouching on all clients including these things. Though here at The Boudoir Studio we are focused on making you see the beauty in the real you & we will not "take off" weight in photoshop or reshape you . The Boudoir Studio will pose you & angle you to highlight your most amazing features! This Experience is about us helping you learn to love YOU! if we edit and change you into a completely falsified version then we are telling you that you , yourself are not beautiful and thats a lie because you are. We are here to show you that! TRUST us!
I DON'T LOOK LIKE THE WOMEN ON YOUR WEBSITE WILL THE PHOTOS STILL LOOK GOOD?
UMMM YESSSSS! I don’t work with models everyone on my website is a real client not a hired person! I have worked with women of all ages from 18-66 years old!! But ,only about one out of every ten clients I photograph lets me post their photo on my website. So even though you may not see someone who looks like you or has the same body type or age range I serve women of all ages and love making all women feel amazing!! Like I said the women on my website are real women just like you who met me for a consultation and decided to make the jump, had their makeup and hair done, chose amazing wardrobe pieces and banked on me to help them create sexy, classy and unique beautiful images. I can do the same for you FOR SURE. Boudoir photography is for each and EVERY woman out there. If you would like more examples of other body types don't hesitate to ask some clients allow private sharing!
WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Sessions take place in my In home Studio in Jefferson NC, Our Edenton Location, outdoors or even if desired at your home! Final directions are given at booking!
HOW DO I PREPARE MYSELF FOR A SESSION?
There are many things that need to be done in order to prepare yourself, all of my boudoir clients receive a informative Welcome packet at booking! This thing is A-Maz-Zing! It will help you know exactly what to do and exactly when to do it?
DO YOU SUPPLY THE OUTFITS?
The Boudoir Studio does not supply ALL outfits at this time, though I have a wardrobe closet, but we ask you bring your favorite pieces as well as a black bra, black g-string/nude gstring and regular black panties. What we have may not be your size or frankly your style! BUT I am here to send you ideas and looks that will be best for your body type and that go along the lines of what you are looking for idea wise! I LOVE TO HELP SHOP!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY PHOTOGRAPHS?
On average I will alert you within 7 days of shooting to come in for your viewing and choose your images for your album (if included in your package) &/or your prints. After that the products will be ordered right away and will be in within 2 weeks! All products must be picked up or paid to be shipped out!
Traveling for your session? You will receive an online proofing gallery where we will go through view and talk about your iamges and you will chose right along side me virtually!
HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION TAKE?
Makeup and hair take an hour to an hour and a half typically. The photographing part of the session takes between 45 minutes to an hour as well. If adding a shower scene it adds 30-40 minutes and if its a couples session that usually adds an hour!
CAN I PURCHASE MORE IMAGES THAN THE ONES I chose prior to my session?
Absolutely! After your shoot, you'll be treated to a personal photo viewing session to review your images. At that time, you'll be guided through our product offerings to select what you would like to purchase.
ARE MAKEUP AND HAIR INCLUDED? CAN I JUST DO MY OWN AND SAVE MONEY ON THE SESSION?
Every session includes full makeup and simple hair styling. Getting your makeup and hair done sets the tone for your session. It gives you time to relax, talk and we get to know each other on a wonderful level before we even get started shooting. Makeup for camera is different than everyday makeup and I want to make sure you have makeup that will not only truly make you feel and look boudoir sexy but will capture exactly that way as well! This is complimentary so it will not save you money to do it yourself!
IS IT OK TO TAN BEFORE MY SHOOT?
Please do NOT tan before your shoot. Tanning always shows up VERY orange in the images, can cause tan lines, orange palms, orange heels and other odd markings on the body. It can also rub off on clothing and furniture. If you do come in after recently tanning, we can not be responsible for tan lines in images which may result in additional editing needed. Additional charges for editing lines may be required.
I'M NOT SEXY LIKE THIS I DON"T KNOW HOW TO POSE OR HOW TO DO ANY OF THIS AND I FEEL LOST!?
Do not worry nerves are completely normal! Being a first timer is as well! I promise you YOU ARE SEXY and my job is to show you exactly how beautiful and sexy you really are! Posing is my thing I will demonstrate every position before I put you in it ! Seeing is believing right?!
DO YOU SHOOT GIRLS WITH CURVES?
Absolutely! Boudoir Photography is for everyone. We specialize in posing women of all shapes and sizes. If you would like to see more examples please email us! We have private rights to some clients photos and would love to show you!
I’M NERVOUS AND SCARED AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO BE SEXY! WHAT DO I DO?
We know nerves can be a concern for a shoot like this, and most of our clients do come in a bit nervous. We want you to take a big breath and relax because you are in EXCELLENT hands. It is not your job to take a good picture, it's OURS. We are going to coach you, guide you, and pose you the entire day. Together we will create beautiful, emotive and evocative images that will take your breath away.
CAN I BRING MY BEST FRIEND OR HUSBAND TO MY SESSION?
I prefer to work with clients individually so they have my complete dedication and attention. Having someone else in the studio even a best friend or significant other has proven to not only be distracting to me while shooting but also to you, whether you are bashful doing a certain pose or movement in front of them or just feel weird being watched. The outcome of your session can be totally opposite of what it might have been if you had been in full attention.
If you make the decision that you need to bring someone, please tell me prior to your session and limit to one person. Even if they do come along no other people are in the studio while we are photographing!
DO YOU DO COUPLES SHOOTS?
Yes we do! We can give all the details on booking a couples session with us once you email us. But couples are definitely one of the most fun invigorating things!
DO YOU DO NUDE SESSIONS?
Yes we do! We do keep them very tasteful, classic and SUPER sexy! They are actually one of our favorite things to shoot!
DO YOU DO MALE BOUDOIR SESSIONS?
Yes we do! We do keep them very tasteful, sultry and desirable! Our Male boudoir is not a joking manor like the funny joking ones you may have seen online. We take Male boudoir very seriously in making our Male clients feel sexy, desirable and confident just as we do our female clients.
