Q: Why should I do this?
A. Boudoir sessions are the ultimate confidence booster. I've had women cry during their reveals, say "Holy shiitake, I can't believe that is me!" There is nothing more important than loving yourself & having the radiance to embrace that fearlessness. You can do a session for you, for your E-Harmony account profile pic, for you significant other. I mean, who doesn't want awesome portraits of themselves? And certainly your special somebody will love them even more than you do. Celebrate your beauty whether its to celebrate weight loss, newfound confidence, or the experience of an epic photoshoot.
Q: Why are your sessions a little more expensive?
A: I deliver a truly unique boudoir experience. You have the choice of what images that I retouch. I offer one of the only boudoir studios in East Tennessee that caters to your unique schedule. Can't make it to a boudoir marathon day? Just come on Wednesday! I constantly have openings in the afternoons. I understand the hectic schedules of working, taking kids to karate practice, running with dad to the doctor...your life is busy! I offer sessions when YOU are available.
Q: Is makeup included with the session?
A: Normally you come ready to shoot, but I can arrange for my makeup artist to give you an incredible makeover! It is only $50 extra. Makeovers are included during boudoir day specials.
Q: I am SO READY to shoot! I am nervous and it's my first time. I'm not a model! Should I even bother? Am I going to look completely ridiculous taking photos in my undies?!
A. The majority of women in my portfolio aren't models! With my years of experience, I will coach you through your session. We will get those fun, flirty shots and we will get the sexy/dramatic/Victoria's Secret fierce ones, too. You won't show more than you would in a swimsuit, so don't be so shy! You can definitely show more but I have shot women of all ages, sizes, and self confidence issues. Don't like your tummy? There's a pose for that! We work with what you LOVE about yourself.
Q: How long have you been doing this?
A: Five years! I am internationally published in various magazines and a member of the Association of International Boudoir Photographers. In fact, I am the only one in East Tennessee! We are a prestigious group of talented individuals that have fine-tuned our artwork and have the experience to make sure you are shooting with a professional.
Q. Will you share my images?
A. Don't worry, lady! You won't end up naked on the internet. I promise. You sign a photo release form before your session. If you tell me no, they stay between us! The gallery you receive is even password protected so unless you send someone the link, nobody else will see. I totally respect your privacy. I have shot with doctors, lawyers, school teachers, and more that must keep their reputation respected in their communities. Your images are intimate and respected. If you choose to allow me to share, they can be shared in my women's only Facebook VIP group, on Instagram, or on my website to help empower other women.
Q: Where are you located?
A. Knoxville, TN! I have my own studio in the Old City which is minutes from downtown. Ever want to drop by and see the studio? Just message me! I'm normally always there.
