Each client gets to customize which photos and products they would like to purchase after your session.
*The average investment is $1500.
What your empowerment session includes
Professional Hair & Makeup: Your boudoir session includes professional hair and makeup to make sure you are ready for your photo op! When you arrive at the studio my makeup artist will sit you down and pamper you - creating the perfect look for your session.
Posing - Down to Your Fingertips: Worried that you won't know what to do? Don't fear - I will help you pose right down to your fingertips. I will even help you relax your expression if needed. I'm with ya every step of the way!
Outfit Selection / General Tips & Tricks!: Once you book, I will help you choose your outfits if you are unsure. Bring everything you're thinking of into your session and we will go through it all together! I am always available to answer any questions you may have before your session. Not sure of something? Pick my brain! I am here to help :)
Each session includes a complimentary meet & greet before you book!
Still got questions, and/or nerves? The boudoir experience is very powerful, and we totally understand that our clients naturally have some pre-shoot jitters! I am happy (and prefer!) to meet with each client before they book so that we can go over any questions you may have, and plan your dream empowerment session! I will be with you every step of the way to help guide you and address any of your concerns. You're in good hands - I can't wait to work with you!
Choosing your session location
There are 4 main options for choosing where you want your boudoir experience to be!
My in-home studio. I have lovingly converted the spare bedroom in my house to be an intimate boudoir sanctuary! Velvet tufted headboard, satin sheets, luxuriously painted walls, and more gold mirrors than you can count (almost). This is the most common place for my sessions to occur and is available for every client.
Outdoors. Want to bare it all outside in the wilderness? Feeling a bit more adventurous? Let’s take it to the wilderness!
AirBNB or a Hotel. Want something a little different from my studio? Rent us an AirBNB and turn your boudoir session into a staycation!
Your house! Got a nice pad that you are proud of? I do house calls!

Preparing for your session
PLANNING YOUR OUTFITS
We recommend bringing wardrobe options that showcase all different aspects of your personality - whatever resonates the most with you! Make sure what you bring makes you feel sexy, confident, and most importantly: fits you right! If it's too small it can create lines and bulges and also make you feel a little less bomb-ass.
If you're at a loss for what to wear, we suggest taking a look through Pinterest for inspiration!
Feel free to snap some photos of your favourite outfits and send them our way! We are happy to help in the decision process!
DO'S & DONT'S BEFORE YOUR SESSION
Do: Relax, allow yourself time to fully indulge in the experience.
Don't: Book an important appointment soon after your session.
Do: Pamper yourself and relax through bubble baths, manicures, pedicures, etc.
Don't: Schedule a body altering treatment too soon before your session. Including: spray tans, cupping, lazer hair removal, waxing, etc.
You're probably going to have nerves and anxiety before your session - and that's totally normal. Now is a great time to schedule in some extra self-care and love. The week leading up to your session make time to listen to your body and indulge in acts of self-love - whatever that looks like to you. The more in tune and in touch you are with your body before your shoot, the less nervous you will be the day of.
Remember to be gentle with yourself - this is an intimidating and vulnerable experience and it's okay to be nervous.
Remember that you're in good hands - you got this!

YOUR SESSION TIMELINE:
60-90 Minutes for Hair & Makeup
60-90 Minutes for your session
After your hair and makeup, and before we get to creating your empowering images, we will sit down and go through your outfits, and any poses that you had in mind that you just need to do! This will be a great time for us to check in, see how you're doing, have some tea or bubbly, and get ready to rock your session out of this world!
What to expect after your session
PHOTO REVEAL APPOINTMENT
After we wrap up your session we will schedule a second appointment for about 1-2 weeks away for you to come back to the studio and see your fabulous photos!
