When I started doing beauty/fashion and boudoir photoshoots, I was nervous and insecure, not really knowing what the images would look like. I had hundreds of questions in my head, will my friends and clients hate the pictures? Am I the right person to be doing this type of photography? What will my family and friends think about me venturing into this field of work? But then, during the photoshoots and while taking short breaks between poses to show my models the photos–straight from the camera. I got a chance to see them smile, feel happy, proud, empowered, and strong about themselves. Those smiles gave me confidence and a feeling of accomplishment, at the same time it challenged me to approach my subjects and my craft in a way I never thought I'd be courageous enough–or even possible for me–to do. Then I thought to myself if I can be part of a very special and important day in the life of my friends and clients, If I can see them smile and help them feel bold, daring, independent, and sexy, then I believe I can do this. Together we can create not just art, but we can also help make this a better world, one beauty & boudoir photoshoot, and film at a time.

Thank you for asking this question. It is not, they are two different experiences. Although both sessions are designed to be very intimate, strong, and sexy. Boudoir is characterized by the use of lingerie, undergarments, and other intimate clothing. A Beauty session, on the other hand, can be characterized by the use of street/casual clothing, a night or gala dress, etc. Although! There is no rule that says we can not mix these attires during the photo session of your choosing. Head over to our Beauty and Boudoir galleries so you can see some of the differences by yourself.
Not at all! The same way you decide if you want to book a Beauty and/or a Boudoir session. you can book only a photo session, only a video session, or both. Whichever you decide, we are here to help you plan and enjoy your experience. We’ll guide you through every step to make sure you get what you want.
We do “same-day-in-house-reveal.” This way, you can select the photographs you like the most from your session. Consequently, these photos will end up in the package(s) you select. Packages can include; a photo album, luxury wall print, slide show, digital files, or a combination of different products.
The process of viewing videos is slightly different. 5 to 6 business days after the video shoot, we’ll send you a private link for you to see the video and make final editing notes. You can submit your notes on-line or in-person by scheduling an appointment with us.
You don’t have to worry about posing at all. Once you arrive at your session, we’ll coach and guide you through each pose. As we move from one place and pose to another, we’ll make sure you feel and look your absolute best. Remember that this is all about having fun and leaving your worries outside the door.
We NEVER share photos of any of our clients (on any platform) without written consent. We will ask for permission to use your image(s) and/or video(s) for promotional use only. If you decline, you will be the only person we will show and deliver the photos and/or videos to. Your privacy and trust are of utmost importance to us.
