Boudoir FAQs


I'm really nervous. Is that normal?
It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir session, so don't worry. Most of my clients are nervous their first time until the session has gone on for a few minutes. After it starts, you’ll begin to loosen up.  You will find it quite empowering and a real confidence builder.   


How do I know how to pose?
Don’t worry about posing. I've totally got you covered in that department. I know all the tricks to create the most flattering angles for you, no matter what shape or size you are.


What do I wear and do you provide the wardrobe?

Wardrobe is a very personal choice.  Boudoir images can range from fine art nude to semi-conservatively dressed and everything in between.  The wardrobe you wear should be based on your comfort level and the theme you are wanting to create.  You and I can certainly discuss this prior to your session to help you come up with the wardrobe to match the look you are wanting to achieve. I do have several wardrobe items and shoes in studio and available for your use.


Do you offer sessions in other locations?

The short answer is yes, I want to make this experience personal and meaningful to you.  Be it your own bedroom space, an office, on the prairie or in a barn, your images should provide meaning to you and those you choose to share them with.  


I want share these pictures with my partner, but I don't want loose prints floating around. 
This is a very common concern and we totally understand.  Your images will be placed in a password protected gallery and will only allowed to be accessed by you or whomever you share the gallery with.  We do not publish any images without your express permission. 


Any ideas for the best gift?

I offer several print, album and merchandise options that you can order and have shipped directly to your door.  For more information on these products, just ask.


What should I bring to my boudoir session?
For our sessions, I suggest a minimum of three different outfits and any props you may want to incorporate.  I typically tell ladies to bring an entire suitcase if they want to, that way we have lots of options! Here are a few ideas on popular wardrobe and props:

  • Those “booty ” jeans or pants your “significant other” goes gaga over!
  • Lingerie… all types, just bring what you feel the sexiest in. 
  • Boy shorts, panties, g-strings.
  • Corsets.
  • Fishnet or thigh high stockings.
  • Short skirts.
  • Sports related, work related or personal interest wardrobe or props (military uniform, sports jersey, fireman’s jacket, work shirt, tie, footballs, guns, guitars, snowboards, surfboards, helmets, roller-skates).
  • Jewelry, stilettos, boots, gloves and hats are always fun accessories to add to shots.

Can I bring a friend?
Yes, you can bring a friend if you think it will help you relax. However, sometimes an extra set of eyes has the opposite effect, even if it is a friend. This will be up to you and your comfort level.
