Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: Why should I do a boudoir photoshoot? 

A: A boudoir photoshoot is an investment that is going to stay with you for the rest of your life. You will look at your pictures in the future and remember how amazing you are. This can help with your personal confidence in other aspects of life. Your photos can be a wonderful gift to your significant other or to yourself. 

Q: I’m not photogenic. Should I do a photoshoot?

A: Yes, you should. It’s likely that you have never been photographed by a good photographer. Once I get you to relax and have fun, I will take beautiful photos of you.

Q: MY CELLULITE /STRETCH MARKS / SCARS WORRY ME. WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT THEM? 

A: I offer high-end retouching on all the purchased images, so I will take care of all of that. Do not worry, just have fun during the shoot! See this gallery for some examples.

Q: I need to lose 10 extra pounds. Should I wait to do the photoshoot?

A: No, don’t wait. You are beautiful as you are. You want to look at your pictures and remember yourself as being beautiful  as your normal self. The camera angles that I use and the outfits that you wear will accentuate your beauty.

Q: I don’t know how to pose. Help! 

A: I work with you step by step to create the best poses for your personality and body type. I will show you exactly what to do and direct you throughout the process. In this video you can see how I pose my client. 

Q: Do I bring my own outfits?

A: Yes you should bring at lease 2 matching, well fitted sets or lingerie or underwear that you feel good in! We can discuss other styles during the consultation and you can see more ideas on my Pinterest page. I have some sweaters, sheers, tops and jewelry you are welcome to use for the shoot. Read the boudoir guide for more details. 

Q: What about hair and makeup?

A: We arrange hair and makeup for you. All you need to bring is a clean face. It is highly recommended to have professional hair and make up because it will help you relax, “feel the part” and emphasize all your features and beauty. 

Q: Can I bring a friend?

A: Yes, you can bring a friend or your significant other if you think that it will help you relax and be more comfortable. I also offer couples boudoir photoshoots. 

Q: What about the privacy of the images?

A: Your privacy is really important to me! I will never share images if you have not given your consent. Of course I will be flattered if you decide to allow me to show your photos, even if it is only for your “anonymous shots”, in which you cannot see your face. 

Q: Is the shoot private? 

A: Indoor shoots are absolutely private; during outdoor shoots, by their very nature, I cannot guarantee privacy but I will strive to find quite places and times for your shoots.

Q: Do you have to be nude? 

A: The amount of nudity will depend entirely on you and your comfort level! You can wear as much or as little as you like. 

Q: How can I afford a boudoir photoshoot? 

I offer flexible payment plans to help you with your purchase over the course of several months. 

Q: Do you travel to other destinations? 

A: Yes I love traveling. Get in touch if you would like a shoot in a location different from Las Vegas.
