Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance should I schedule my session?
The more time in advance the better! If your photos will be used as a gift for a special occasion, we recommend that you schedule your session at least 6 weeks before the gift is needed. Sessions can be booked up to 6 months in advance. If a last minute date is needed, we will do our best to accommodate. You will be able to see your edited images approximately one week after your session, at your viewing session. This is when you will get to see your images for the first time, see how AMAZING you look, and decide which photos you would like.

May I bring a friend?
Arrangements must be requested in advance. Please be advised that men are not allowed in the studio.
Do you provide makeup?
Yes, we do offer packages that include makeup and hair by a professional makeup artist. Getting your makeup and hair done sets the tone for your session. It gives you time to relax, get to know us better and feel pampered. But more importantly, having a professional do your makeup means they know how to do camera-ready makeup that will truly make you feel and look special and sexy! They know the secrets of cheekbone contouring and other wonderful ways to take your natural beauty and highlight it. Honestly, you will want to have a professional makeup artist go with you everywhere once you experience this luxury!
Will there be any men present during my shoot?
NO! We have a friendly and professional all female team.
I’m so nervous!
That’s OK! You are allowed to be nervous and anxious and excited and scared, all at the same time! When you arrive at the studio you will be pampered with champagne and goodies. This will give you time to relax and get comfortable in the very capable hands of your makeup artist. We are here to help you feel confident, comfortable, relaxed and sexy!
I’m so pale! Should I get a spray tan?
We generally recommend to clients that they do NOT get a spray tan or head to a tanning booth before their session. Spray tans, if not done perfectly, can be blotchy and patchy, and that is not sexy! Tanning beds can also leave you with very noticeable white patches under your arms, under your butt cheeks…again, not sexy! The lighting in the studio is absolutely perfect, and it, along with some adjustments in Photoshop, can make your skin look wonderfully warm and beautiful.
Do you share my images?
Images are NEVER shared anywhere without your permission. On rare occasions we may ask if we can share a photo on our website or on social media. It would be your decision. There is NO requirement to share images in order to book a session.
Do you offer retouching? Can you remove bruises, scars, blemishes, cellulite, etc?
Retouching is included with every session. We remove scars as requested, acne, blemishes, stretch marks and cellulite in addition to bruises and other random marks you may have on the day of your session!
Please note: We do not do extensive “body reshaping” as part of our retouching unless requested by the client. Significant reshaping may be subject to a fee. We work with clients to find the most flattering poses for their shape during their session, which makes this typically unnecessary.
I don’t look like the women on your website. Do you think I can still have a good shoot?
The women on our website are real women just like you who went through makeup and hair, put together thoughtful wardrobes and trusted us to help them create sexy, beautiful images. We can do the same for you.
Our clients range from early 20s through 60s with every body type.
What should I bring to the session?
We will also have a consultation call prior to your session to answer any question or concerns that you may have. During the call, we will provide you with suggestions on things to bring to your session.
In general here are some things you will want to bring:
- 3 to 6 outfit changes: a mix of lingerie, special items (like a favorite shirt of his or jersey) and any other options you might like.
- Accessories – jewelry and other items like a hat, helmet, veil etc.
- Sexy shoes!
Do I bring my own clothes? Do you have some I can use?
You will need to bring your own outfits. We do offer embellishments for use from our “Fantasy Closet.” Over the years we have consistently added fun accessories and props to our Fantasy Closet that will add to your experience and bring out your Moxie.
I don’t know how to pose. Help!
This is by far the biggest concern for most of our clients! If help is needed we are there to offer guidance. You are never on your own, unless you want to be!
Note that posing will NOT feel like just another afternoon of lounging around on your bed. If the pose feels awkward, you are probably doing it right! Have fun with it!
Do you offer boudoir parties or bridesmaids-type parties?
We offer experiences just for this type of group! It’s a great way to bond. Some girls like to have a boudoir party and then have the bachelorette party that night while they’re all glammed up with professionally done makeup and hair!
Groups of 4 or more receive discounted session rates.
I’m traveling from out of town for my session. Where should I stay?
Many of our clients travel in for their sessions from out of the area. Please let us know if you’re interested in booking a place to stay while you’re in town.
I don’t see any semi nude photos on your website. I’m a little embarrassed to ask, but do you offer that type of photography?
Yes, We do offer artistic nude options during sessions. We just choose not to display this on the web. Keep in mind that we will only photograph tasteful nudes – if it’s outside of our comfort zone, we will let you know.
