Boudoir, Beauty, and Maternity FAQ’s

We have included some information to help answer many common questions about our sessions. If your question is not answered below, we will be more than happy to help you. Please call or email us and we will get back to you shortly.

I Really Want To Do A Session, But I Don’t Look Like A Supermodel?

This is the perfect gift to give to yourself! Beauty and Boudoir sessions are for every day women like you and me. I have photographed women of all shapes, sizes and ages, and each of us has a beauty and a sensuality all our own. Lighting, posing, and specific camera angles help emphasize that natural beauty. I love what I do because I get the chance everyday to help women feel divinely powerful, feminine, and free.

I Am A Little Nervous…How Will I Know What To Do?

Don’t worry, everyone is a little nervous at first. I guide you through your whole session; showing you exactly what to do, how to pose, where to look, adjusting your outfits and hair, as well as making you laugh. The sessions truly are fun and inspiring. You are sure to walk away feeling beautiful and empowered.

Where Will My Session Take Place?

Sessions take place at my Red Bank, NJ studio. On-location options are available as well, such as your home, the beach, a park, a farm, etc. Additional fees may apply.

What Should I Wear?

Anything that makes you feel gorgeous and confident. The options are endless… but here are a few suggestions: 

Beauty -   Play it casual with jeans and a cute top, or dress it up with a sexy out-on-the-town designer dress!  Bring a variety of clothes that range from casual, to dressy and anything in between like that fun and flirty romper. The most important thing is that the clothes you choose make you feel confident and show your style and personality.

Boudoir - Corsets are flattering on every body type, a bra and panty set, stockings and a garter, boy-shorts, lacey undies, sports jersey, men’s button-down shirt. Remember that accessories really add to your session’s overall look too; high heels, jewelry, your veil, fur, etc. 

Have fun with it!

** Please note that I do not provide lingerie items due to the intimate nature of the attire.

Do You Retouch?

Absolutely! I don’t deliver anything I wouldn’t want delivered to myself! Noone is perfect, and we all have areas that we may want to de-emphasize. Every image delivered to you is retouched and album ready… never plastic looking, just a glamorous you!

Do You Offer Hair And Makeup Services?

I LOVE my team of hair and makeup stylists! They are truly the best in their industries, and a wealth of knowledge about on-camera and everyday beauty tips and tricks. I highly recommend professional hair and makeup for your session, because on-camera application is very different from everyday application. Plus, it’s the icing on the cake for the full experience and day of pampering. Every beauty and boudoir session includes my professional hair and makeup team. 

Will You Use My Images On Your Website/blog Or On Facebook?

Your privacy is extremely important to me. I never use clients’ images without their written permission. Each client is required to sign a Privacy Policy that lets me know if I can use any of their images, and, if so, what I can use them for.

Can I Bring A Friend?

Absolutely! You are more than welcome to bring a friend along. It can be great to have a support team and someone else to make you laugh. Better yet, have your friend book her session for the same day. 

How Far In Advance Should I Book My Shoot?

It is best to plan ahead and book 2 months from the date you want any finished products. If your delivery deadline is closer than 2 months we are happy to do our best to accommodate shorter delivery timeframes if our schedule allows. Please feel free to ask about your options.

Maternity Sessions should be booked at between the 32/36-week mark. That way you've popped enough for us to see that beautiful belly, but not too far along to where you feel uncomfortable. Of course, every pregnancy is different, and we can plan accordingly based on your pregnancy.

Can I Set Up A Consultation?

Of course, you can! I always try to meet with clients prior to booking a session. It’s a great way for you to view more work, see and feel the different products, as well as a chance for us to get comfortable with one another. Consultations are by appointment only. You can book your appointment HERE or call us at 732.889.4790.

How Do I Book A Session With You?

Sessions are booked and your date/time will be reserved when your signed contract and retainer is received. Please note that the studio works on a first come, first serve basis.

What Payment Methods Do You Accept?

Any major credit card (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover), check or cash is accepted as a form of payment.
