DUDE, YES! Hey, hi, hello. I too am awkward AF! I have been doing this for many years now and I can, with confidence say: I gotchuuuu! I will style your outfits AND pose you 100%!
Nope, never ever unless you sign a model release agreement! You don’t just have to take my word for it, in our photography agreement I require clients to sign before our session – it spells out alllll the things INCLUDING that I don’t share your images anywhere, not even in person, with anyone! That can be found in the confirmation email I send over.
Yes, you absolutely can! I am flexible – the majority of my clients send payments in the months/weeks leading up to their session so they aren’t stuck with a large bill at once so that totally works for me! If you want to pay your balance off AFTER your session that’s also fine, just know your images will not be sent over until after your balance is paid in full. You will have a maximum of 6 months from the day of your session to pay your remaining balance (this requires a contract, of course).
Yes, I do require a retainer upon booking – your session is NOT confirmed without this payment. Your retainer is deducted from your package cost, it’s not an additional fee. The retainer is non-refundable but CAN be rolled over to another date if you’re coming to my studio (if rescheduled within the time frame spelled out in the contract), this is not the case for my travel locations such as air bnbs. The retainer is 50% for a session with the remaining balance due the day of your session, unless we have discussed a payment plan.
If you’re in Maine, we will use my insanely fabulous 450 square foot studio which is attached to my home! It has amazing natural light, beautiful dark wood floors, and tons of sass! If you’re further away, I find a fabulous air bnb or rental studio for us to use, I always make sure these spaces live up to my standards for lighting, mood & spice! (This requires an additional add on cost)
Up until recently, I would break down my packages by 1 hour, 2 hour, etc. But then I realized I was ALWAYS going over the time limit so I decided to scratch that and just leave our session time up to the flow and vibes! So essentially there is no limit to how long you are in the studio. TYPICALLY your session will run anywhere from 1-2 hours long but you are free to stay as long as we need to get all the shots you want!
Rescheduling is a pain in the ass, there, I said it! I get it though, life happens… If we need to reschedule I will TRY to accommodate your schedule but there are no guarantees as my boudoir openings fill up quickly and typically I am booked 3+ months out. If you cancel last minute or no show, your retainer is forfeited and will need to be paid AGAIN if you choose to book with me in the future.
14 BUSINESS days to receive your proof gallery from Maine clients - 3 BUSINESS weeks for travel sessions. AKA Monday-Friday (5 biz days), just like most businesses even though I work for myself and see clients on the weekends/holidays, I’m not doing admin work like editing, emails, etc on the weekends/holidays. Work/life balance, ya know? ( Rush fees are available if you're like me and suck at planning ahead)
At this time it is not. I try to keep my starting prices reasonable in order for to allow people with all budgets the opportunity to indulge in this luxury experience. Want to do your own hair & make up? No problem. However you can opt to add on hair & make up from a trusted, licensed, artist for $300.
If you regularly get spray tans then hell yeah, live your best life! If you have never gotten one before I don’t recommend it. If you have weird streaks, orange hands/feet, or badly blended areas – these are NOT things I edit out so keep that in mind. It’s the same with tan lines from the sun – they’ll be blended slightly but not fully. Scratches, bruises, marks, etc will be edited out fully though! If you regularly get waxed then, yes. If not, now is NOT the time to experiement! Razor bumps suck but are not going to be seen in your photos through strategic posing AND editing
Both, I have a 400+ piece collection of various sized lingerie, sweaters, tights, etc AND I will send you an outfit guide to help you choose what to bring for yourself.
Soooo, fun fact: I’m pretty fucking fantastic at posing ALL bodies soooo rest assured that I gotchu babe. Also humble, I’m also obviously very humble. Body modifications like adding a lil somthin’ extra to your chest or booty cheeks or doing insane skin smoothing are definitely not something I offer because I’m THAT good at posing and utilizing/creating kick ass lighting situations. I’ll make sure posing is perfect from the top of your head to your toes! Alsooooo, I show my clients the back of my camera - a lot. before they change outfits so you can see the magic we’re currently creating vs waiting for the final gallery to be edited. You’ll see how insanely fabulous the shots are straight out of camera before any type of editing and your mind will be put at ease. I guarantee it, seriously. Ya girl has been doing this for 8.5 years and I’ve worked with thousands of amazing humans of all different body types, ages, etc. I will remove anything that’s temporary: pimples, bruises, and scratches – I’ll also ask you if you have any birthmarks, freckles that might look like a butt pimple, or scars that you want left in/out during your session. Your skin will be gently smoothed and you’ll obviously look like the baddest bitch in the world, because, duh you are.
