Hey gorgeous! Chances are if you've found me, you are ready for an adventure that not everyone gets to experience. You want to find that sexy goddess you were back in your 20s or maybe you want to find her for the first time. You've spent too long telling yourself to be brave. So be brave with ME! You are perfect RIGHT NOW! With a studio in Chico, California and traveling to the Bay Area several times a year, you'll find it easy to make this your destiny.
Boudoir in MY studio is not going to be like your cookie cutter sessions anywhere else. We are going to tailor this to you and your personality. Your beauty is yours and yours alone and we are about to ramp it up and capture it in action. So get ready for an entire day of pampering and exploring your inner sensuality. Whatever you want to get out of this we are about to make it happen.
Cold fall day, cuddled up under one of my many throw blankets reading a book and drinking a peppermint mocha. That is my idea of a perfect moment. I enjoy the quiet and but thrive in the chaos. I'm an entrepreneur, wife, and mom of two, ages 7 and 11, so those quiet moments rarely happen as I'm sure you can imagine.
My life was spent dreaming that I could look different, fit in my clothes differently. Constantly chasing that confidence that other people seemed to have so easily. Until one day something inside me changed. What if that confidence that others seem to so easily have was mine to have to? What If I said to hell with it and became one of those confident people? How the hell do you do that? That's been my journey and my guess is, since you're here, yours might be like that too.
My goal in life has always been to blend in to the point of invisibility, don't stand out. It started to be blaringly obvious that that isn't any way to live. And even more of a catalyst for me, I didn't want my daughter to think that was the way women should feel in this world. I made a decision and said fuck it! LETS GO!
I wanted to be a beautiful, confident, badass queen for my daughter, but more importantly to prove that I'd been denying myself all those years to feel that I had to stay small. And what a fucking revelation that was! I want that for you too.
Whether you are at the beginning of this journey of yours in finding yourself or if you've already discovered what an amazing, passionate, beautiful human you are and you're ready to show the world. I am ready to meet you where ever you are. My studio is a safe and fun environment for you to explore all of your beauty. I'll be there to capture it.
It's not just about the photos. It's about the whole experience and that's what I deliver
Boudoir shouldn't feel like you're just another body in a room. You should connect and enjoy it from start to finish.
Every session with me begins with a call. I know, I know! You hate phone calls. Girl, me too. But this experience is too important to rush in. I always hop on a call first to make sure we vibe. I want you to ask me your questions and I want you to hear that I'm a real human whom you can trust to empower and enrich your life by giving my all to helping you on this journey.
Let's get you on the books!
We'll pick your session date and get you on the books. You'll get a few emails with lots of helpful info, so you feel 100% comfortable and prepared for your session.
It's what we've been waiting for!
Session DAY!!! You'll show up for hair and makeup (always included!) and start your pampering day. You and I will chat about your outfits and make final choices. Then we'll jump into photos. You'll get to watch me do most poses first and I will tell you what to do with every inch of you, even your toes!
You did it!
You're all done! Now I get to work editing all your images. We'll schedule a reveal appointment within 3-5 days of your shoot for you to come back and experience all of the art we created.
Let's go through all those gorgeous images...
The REVEAL! Finally the moment you've been waiting for... you'll get to see all your images and we'll make final design decisions for your products and images.
Q: What should I wear for my boudoir session?
A: There are so many options when it comes to lingerie. It starts with your preference. After you book, you’ll receive an email with several different lingerie sites to shop for the perfect pieces. You can even just window shop for an idea of styles. BUT if you don’t want to buy any pieces, don’t worry. I have an entire client closet with 70+ pieces that you are welcome to wear.
Q: How long should I plan to be there during my session?
A: You’ll start your day in hair and makeup. That usually takes about an hour and a half. Then, you’ll come to my studio for the session itself which is another hour to hour and a half. I usually suggest you plan to schedule 4 hours from start to finish for the day of your session.
Q: I have no idea what I’m doing in front of the camera, is that a problem?
A: NOT AT ALL! You don’t have to know a damn thing coming into this. I will tell you and show you every step of the way. You’ll be directed from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. I understand have nerve wracking it can be in front of the camera and never expect anyone to know how to pose. Boudoir is especially specific because the slightest chin movement can make all the difference in a photo. All I ask is that you trust me when I tell you “more ARCH!!”
Q: Do I have to get naked?
A: Absolutely not! Boudoir is what we make it and I can make you look sexy in jeans and a shirt. But part of boudoir is to push a little outside of your comfort zone. I always ask what you are planning to wear and what the expectation is. Usually we’ll start more modest and move into the steamier stuff later. Sometimes you may not feel comfortable going nude at first, but once we’re comfortable you may change your mind. I will never push you one way or the other. My job is to make you feel comfortable and take sexy photos for YOU!
Q: Are my photos going to be shared?
A: No, not if you don’t want them to be. 60% of the sessions I shoot are not shared with anyone but the client. I will not share anything unless you give me signed permission to do so. That being said, when I do my Boudie calls (modified model call) I wave the session fee in exchange for a signed model release so those images are shared at my discretion.
Q: How long does it take to see my photos after my session?
A: I get right to work after our session to have your photos ready for you to view as soon as possible. At the end of our session together we’ll schedule your reveal (where you come back to the studio to view all your gorgeous images) for 3-5 days out.
Q: How long does it take to get my products?
A: I use only high-quality professional printing labs for your products so it can take some time to get your products in once ordered. It takes about 5 weeks from ordering to get them to you. I recommend booking your session 6-8 weeks before any special event if you need products by a certain date.
Q: How do I pay for my products?
A: You can pay with cash, credit card or PayPal credit. Full payment is due at the time of the reveal for any products purchased. I highly recommend to all my clients that they take advantage of a pre-payment plan. After we schedule your session date, you’ll receive a complete pricing list. You have the option to setup a pre-payment plan that works best for your budget leading up to your session. That takes the stress out of paying one lump sum and you’ll be able to focus solely on your GORGEOUS self during your session.
