I’M REALLY NERVOUS, BUT I’M INTERESTED…

Every single girl I’ve ever photographed arrives with a panicked look on her face.  The “what am I doing?” look.  It’s completely common, and if you don't look like that, I’ll be worried.  The first 20 minutes of the session is our warm up time.  You most likely will never see those shots because I'm just trying to get you comfortable in front of my camera.  

And it’s not like I’m telling you “Okay, be sexy for me now!”  Oh my god.  No.  I give you constant direction with posing.  If something doesn't look flattering, we'll fix it so it does.  I’m there to make you feel and look BEAUTIFUL.  Please don’t put pressure on yourself.  I’ll be with you every step of the way.  And by the end of our session, you’ll be so into it that I’ll literally have to kick you out.  I’m serious.  I will actually have to say to you, “No, but I really need to go now.”  And that’s a good thing.

And, I will suggest wine, because I’m not above that.

 

I SEE THAT YOU HAVE IMAGES POSTED ON YOUR WEBSITE.  WILL MINE BE ON THERE?

All of the images used in marketing materials and/or posted on my website and social media have all been released with permission from clients. I love it when you guys let me share your beauty. But holy shit, I get it.  These are intimate photographs! I would never ask you to do something you’re not comfortable with. Your privacy is most important to me.  Also, images used for web/advertising/social media are never embedded with your name. You won't come up in a google search, I promise. I got your back.

 

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO WEAR… CAN YOU HELP A SISTA OUT?

My biggest piece of advice… wear what you feel most comfortable in.  If you’re not a lingerie girl, please don’t come to me with a duffle bag full of lingerie items.  I can’t make you feel comfortable in something you wouldn’t normally feel comfortable in.  But also know that there are many options for different types of sleepwear/intimates that are also casual.  You just have to know where to look for them!  I’ve compiled great links of “what to wear” in this Vendors link.

 

I DON’T LIKE HOW BIG MY LEGS ARE.  CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP THEM AND MAKE ME LOOK SKINNY?

If this is a question, I need you to reread the unBOUDOIR page and re-evalute why you are doing this.  And I mean that in the most un-bitchy, sweetest way possible.  It will always be my goal to pose you in the most flattering way possible, however if you are not comfortable with your body, I cannot make you comfortable with your body.  Nobody is perfect.

While I will most certainly touch up blemishes and other similarities, I won't recreate your body. We all have flaws and imperfections… things we may not be comfortable with.  But instead of covering them up, let’s embrace them.

 

You are beautiful.

it's time to own it.
