I am sure you will have lots of questions. Here are some of my most frequently asked questions but if you don’t find your answer please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Frequently Asked Questions

This is a very common concern but you do not need to worry. I will carefully pose you down to the very last detail so you don’t need to worry about where to look, where to place your hands, it’s all done for you. I will even rearrange your hair.

The short answer is no!

You need to feel confident at all times so I will be led by you. In our telephone consultation we will have a chat about exactly what you are wanting to achieve and work around that. 

Having said that you’ll be surprised at how quickly all those feelings of and anxiety just melt away and are replaced with exhilaration, so who knows.

Just remember you are always in charge.

A boudoir photo shoot is for every woman. I believe every woman is beautiful and it’s time to celebrate YOU! There is no upper age or size limit (you do have to be over 18 years old).

Every single woman has come away from their shoot feeling empowered and confident and standing a good 2 inches taller!

Every single woman on my website is an ordinary woman just like you. None of them are models, they are different ages, different shapes and they are all absolutely gorgeous.

After your shoot you will look as good as them and more importantly, you will FEEL as good as they do too!

Literally every woman says this before she comes in, but don’t worry, to start with you don’t need confidence, just a little trust. The confidence will soon come, believe me.

Make-up, hair styling, sensual lighting and the all important posing guidance, will take the most reserved woman and transform her into a camera-ready diva.

We all have what we consider to be flaws but by guiding you into naturally flattering poses, using lighting techniques to sculpt your body and hug your curves we draw the eye to your favourite features.

You are your own worst critic, be kind to yourself.

Boudoir sessions usually take around 2-3 hours including hair and make up.

The session fee is payable on booking and locks in the date for your session. The amount will then be deducted from your chosen package at your viewing session.

The session fee is forfeit if you don’t attend your appointment or cancel without give 5 working days notice.

I know that life happens so if you find that you are unable to attend your session you are welcome to reschedule, I ask that you give me 5 days working days notice so I can hopefully offer your slot to someone else and release my make up lady.

I will send you a ‘How to Prepare Guide’ well before your shoot but the general recommendation is 3-5 outfit changes, don’t forget you can bring props or special outfits, the limit really is your imagination.

Having a professional do your make-up means they know how to do camera-ready make-up that will truly make you feel and look amazing. 

However, I want you to be happy, so please do speak up if you want to make an adjustment. My lovely make-up lady is happy to talk with you about making any adjustments to the make-up after you’ve had some time to get used to it.

After your session, we will schedule a date for your viewing at the studio. It’s at this appointment that you will choose your favourite images and it’s also then that we decide on what to do with them! If you are looking for a beautiful wall art collection to fill your walls, please measure the space available prior to the appointment.

Usually I will have your viewing booked for around a week after your session.

Prior to your shoot we will have a good chat about the amount of editing you are comfortable with. I always make it very clear to my ladies that I will not change your shape or make you slimmer/bigger than you are.

However, I am very proficient at Photoshop and will edit out any spots or blemishes as well as applying a lovely skin smoothing filter. I am also able to remove any unwanted tattoos or scars should you so wish.

Obviously if you would prefer no retouching at all, I am happy to oblige.
