Frequently Asked Questions

I've never done this... will you help me prepare for the shoot?
Of course! We don’t expect you to suddenly become a model. We’ll start off at your comfort level and work from there. We’ll help you pick out your wardrobe and with posing so you look your best. We’ll be there for you every step of the way.
Where do we do the shoot?
We have our own studio located in Jacksonville. We can shoot in other locations such as your home or a hotel based on your individual needs but there would be an additional location fee for this service.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes, however we do not recommend it as they tend to make you feel more nervous and judged. They’ll also try to give posing suggestions that usually don’t look good when photographed. From our experience, the best photographs are those wherein you are most comfortable and that usually happens when you’re working one-on-one with your photographer.
What should I bring?
Bring outfits that make you feel sexy. This can be anything from a sports jersey to a tie, lingerie to a slinky dress. Bring a variety of choices and we’ll pick out what’ll work best during your session. For panty/bra set, it’s best if you bring something black, white, and some bold color. Don’t forget to also bring heels (black and tan match almost everything) and accessories (stockings, jewelry like pearls and bracelets, etc.). If you’re doing a Bridal Boudoir session, bring your veil and garter too.
What is the session like?
Our goal is to make you feel comfortable so it’ll be a casual session. We’ll chat, take some photos, we’ll coach you on different poses and looks… and if you want to crack open a bottle of champagne, feel free! We’re here not only to take some amazing photos but to have some fun as well!
What if I come early or run late?
We ask that you do not arrive more than 10 minutes early or more than 10 minutes late as this affects other clients that may be booked before or after your session. Please be courteous.
What if I need to cancel?
We require a 5 day notice for any appointment changes, reschedules, or cancellations. If you do not provide adequate notice, you will forfeit your session retainer and another retainer will be required to rebook.
Are the images retouched?
Yes. Part of what makes our boudoir photography stand out is our high-end magazine-ready retouching technique. We spend hours meticulously working on your photographs, color correcting, fixing blemishes and skin issues, and bringing out the best in you.
When will I see my pictures?
We’ll schedule a day to meet approximately 2-3 weeks after the shoot. This will give us enough time to go through all the photos and make them perfect for viewing.
How much should I expect to spend?
This really is up to you. For lingerie and accessories, we recommend not spending much because nobody will be able to tell a knock-off from the real Louboutin in your photographs. For your prints and album, take a look at our print products page. Generally speaking, our clients will spend between $600-$1500, depending on what they want.
Your images are always under our care and we process the photos through a reputable professional USA-based photo lab. Your images will not appear on our website or promotional materials without your written consent.
We pride ourselves in the quality of the images we deliver. To accomplish this, we have high quality professional equipment and we spend hours on each image to make sure it is up to our standard. You’ll also receive our artistic sensibility and knowledge, as well as have the full “model” experience we can provide due to our background in fashion photography.
Ok, I'm ready! What's the next step?
