GLAMOUR AND BOUDOIR

These sessions are $295. Images are priced separately. More on that below....

Boudoir and glamour sessions are typically 2 1/2 hours long and are custom designed for each client. The session is based on what you want to accomplish and the purpose of the session......Is this a gift for a special someone.?  A magazine submission ? A fantasy shoot? Everyone is different. Some clients are a bit conservative, while others are not. We will discuss all of this before the session. Most times, clients begin to feel much more relaxed and comfortable as the session progresses and they lose the reservations and inhibitions they originally had about the shoot. All sessions start very slowly and conservatively.....you are not expected to jump right in before you become comfortable. That would be stressful, and we are not about that. You also don't need to worry about posing.....I have years of experience in that department. I can make you look like a Centerfold, as shown in the image here or just fun and flirty.....the choice is yours. You will never be pushed into a pose your are not comfortable with. You are in charge.

The easiest way to ease your concerns and hopefully answer questions in advance are with an FAQ.

DOES SOMEONE DO MY HAIR AND MAKEUP?

I am a master in retouching images. I believe most women know what hair and makeup works best for them. Plus, by not using a makeup artist, I am able to keep the session cost down, which benefits my clients. There is always a chance you won't like the way you look after a new stylist does your hair and makeup, which I have experienced with previous clients. In addition, the date and time you choose for your session might conflict with my makeup artist's schedule and make juggling times difficult. Again, the client featured in the photo on this page did her own hair and makeup. There were 4 lights used for this photo, and I retouched the image.

If you truly feel the need to have a stylist do your hair and makeup,  just have the stylist of your choice provide the service and bring the receipt. I will give you a photo credit for that amount. 

I DON'T WANT MY IMAGES DISPLAYED ONLINE OR ANYWHERE ELSE.

Relax. This is a professional studio. You will sign a legal consent form and produce ID prior to the session. The form gives me permission to take the photographs and you the right to legally prevent any publication or display of any kind other than for your personal use. Everything is very professional. You are actually safer with a contract in hand than if you have a friend or partner take images of you......relationships sometimes end and you lose control of the images.....contractual release forms are forever.

The contract protects both you and me. The photo shoot is private, as well as the viewing . There is a strict "for your eyes only" policy. You are fully protected. Boudoir images are never posted online for ordering, either.

I am always expanding my portfolio and galleries on my website. If you do choose to allow display of images, you receive credits toward  free aditional prints or a wall portrait. You must give written permission at all times.

I also do magazine submissions, model portfolios, and posters and calendars for those who qualify. I have been fortunate to have provided these services for clients from across  the USA for the past 15 years.

CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME? DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?

With the exception of myself, all boudoir sessions are "women only." If you feel more at ease with a chaperone for the session, the initial interview, or the viewing, you are welcome to bring an adult female. Chaperones are not present during the photo shoot. They will remain in the waiting area. My wife is usually present and will entertain your guest. In the past we allowed males to attend, but occasionally we would get a boyfriend or fiance that would do nothing but make his girlfriend nervous and anxious and ruin the session. It also makes me uncomfortable since I would be put in the middle, plus this is an in-home studio. I don't want negativity in my home. We therefore adopted a "women only" policy as a result. There are no exceptions to this rule. It is part of the contract. You will feel much more calm and collected with no distractions. Our goal is to produce stunning images and make your session super fun and productive. It's all about you !

.I HAVE IMPERFECTIONS . CAN YOU CONCEAL?

Everyone has imperfections.....real or imagined. Everyone also has assets and strong suits. We will focus on strong points and retouch when needed. Also, the poses I put you in will make a huge difference in the images. You will be impressed with yourself! Ask yourself, what feature do I have the most confidence in? What gets my partner's attention every time? We will accentuate that!

DO I BRING MY OWN OUTFITS?

Of course. Bring whatever you like. Again, You probably know what you look best in, and the feature you or your partner  likes most . Let's emphasize that! We also have clean, stock lingerie that you can choose from if you like. There is also a "between the sheets" option where bedsheets are used to cover and uncover you for the images. If you need inspiration or direction, simply look through Playboy magazine or a Victoria Secret catalog. Garter belts and stockings with high heels are a great addition always! Ask yourself what your partner responds to and we will take it up a notch in the images.....that technique always works best. And again.......high heels!

WHAT ABOUT REFUNDS?

Since we block out the date of your session and turn away others for that date, we do not offer refunds for sessions. You must pay in advance for both your session and the images and products you order after your viewing. Your images are available for viewing 4 weeks after your photo session. 

 PLEASE CALL WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS YOU MIGHT HAVE AND WE WILL SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT TO SET UP YOUR BOUDOIR SESSION. YOU WILL LOVE THE RESULTS AND SO WILL HE OR SHE.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BRIDAL HEIRLOOM PORTRAIT SESSIONS

We have many brides who want traditional heirloom portraits in studio and at our home, for a truly unique addition to their wedding album. The photograph here is a perfect example of why professional studio portraits are so popular. There are 5 lights used to execute this image.....fill light, main light, hair light, background light, kicker light.....It's time consuming, extremely precise, and not something done at weddings. The photographer must understand metering and posing . Not a task for amateurs. We are painting with light here.

In addition, our studio is located in a True Victorian Home built in 1871. The victorian parlor lends itself to one of a kind photographs in a setting that is timeless. The session fee is only $300 with a $50 credit toward your image order. Photographs from this session are purchased separately.

This session can be in addition to your wedding photography or provided as a stand alone package.

All of our studio sessions, from Wedding to Boudoir, provide these valuable benefits.
