2021 Boudoir Sessions


2021 is finally here! We have all been looking forward to the end of that horrible year and a new beginning. Cheers to the light at the end of the tunnel!

Even with the roll out of the vaccine we are still in it for a bit longer, which really limits your Valentines day plans. I think these sessions are an AMAZING gift (my own husband will back that up ๐Ÿ˜‚...he was pretty shook by the ones I just shot of myself!) and a super fun experience for you!

Nervous? Literally, every single woman I have photographed for boudoir was super nervous walking in. Bringing along a friend for support (or booking back to back with your friend) can help calm your nerves. You may bring a drink to calm you as well, just keep consumption to a 2 drink maximum for safety's sake (I don't want to send you home in a Uber ๐Ÿ˜‰) I will play your favorite music genre, be silly and not judge you one single bit. I myself am extremely comfortable and un phased by nudity, so don't worry about what I am thinking (because it's probably along the lines of what I am going to cook for dinner).

Prepping for your shoot is an experience in itself. Some of my best advice is included below:

  1. Avoid foods that make you feel bloated. Not so much for looks but for the feel. It's not fun to hold a hard back arch when your gut feels yucky.

  2. Take a long hot bath the night before or day of. Soak all that dead skin, exfoliate, shave and exfoliate again. This will help your skin glow and reduce razor bumps. Follow up with a good full body moisturizer. NEVER try a product you have never used before, especially if you have allergies. It would stink to break out from a new product. SKIP THIS WHOLE STEP IF YOU USE A SELF OR SPRAY TAN.

  3. Speaking of self tanner, it can tend to photograph on the orange side. Make sure you use something light. I love the loreal sublime bronze wipes for myself! one or two applications a couple of days before is enough to give a little glow.

  4. Hair and makeup: with all of the tutorials on youtube it is totally plausible to do your own hair and make up. A "going out" vibe is what you should be going for. If you have zero hair and make up skills, I do recommend getting it done by a professional.

  5. If you are bringing a friend make sure they are the cheerleader type and not the critical type. You want someone with you who will not be jealous or critical. Booking multiple sessions together is not a bad idea.

A bit about Covid: We take Covid very seriously at the studio. You will need to hand sanitize when entering the studio. Anyone not being photographed will need to wear a mask the entire time. I will wear a KN95 and prefer that those not being photographed wear a KN95 as well, if not a surgical mask ( I have them available) is required, no cloth masks please. Along with always following guidelines, myself and family use Xlear nasal spray (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201130005291/en/New-Studies-Conclude-Xlear-Kills-andor-Deactivates-SARS-CoV-2) before and after any contact outside of our immediate family. I run a MPR 1500 Hepa filer fitted fan in the shooting room and a fan pulling air out of the office. At closing time studio is deep sanitized with O3 at 6000mg/h for 1.5 hours and high touch surfaces are sprayed or wiped with lysol. Please adhere to all state mandated quarantine protocols and reschedule if you have Covid symptoms or close contact exposure.


Once you arrive we'll go through the outfits and accessories you brought and talk about your comfort level and the kinds of shots you and if this is for a significant other, the kinds of imagery they would love to see.
