How does it work?
Here you’ll find a list of the most frequently asked questions, so that you can understand how I work. If you don’t find answers to your questions, feel free to send me an email!
- How long does the boudoir session take?
Usually it takes 2 hours and you have time for up to 5 outfits.
- Where will it take place?
The best location for a boudoir session is your own home (bedroom or even in the living room and in the kitchen). I highly recommend it because you’ll feel more comfortable! And…you will have your wardrobe available! If it’s not possibile to shoot there, we can arrange the boudoir session in a hotel (extra charge for the room is required) or wherever you want me to fly to!
- What should I wear/choose for the session?
The answer is simple: you can choose whatever you want, whatever you feel sexy and at ease in! You can choose a sweater, a blouse or a shirt, jeans or legwarmer, a silk negligee, your preferred underwear or an intriguing item of lingerie as babydoll and guêpière! Or that suit that has been left in the closet for a long time because there was never the opportunity to put it on! You can match the accessories you like: stockings, necklaces, high-heel shoes…
- Can I have a friend with me at my session?
There’s no problem at all. This is a personal and intimate photo shoot, so it’s really important that you can feel relaxed and queit even in front of a friend. You won’t have to think “what will she say? What could shi think about this?”. You friend can’t direct your posing during the shooting and can’t take photos.
- What about your style? I’m not beautiful, do you handle it with Photoshop, don’t you?
I prefer shooting with available and natural light and its shadows. I love black and white, high-contrast, dark and low key shoots. Most of my boudoir sessions have only black and white images.
I use Photoshop just a little bit, I rely on poses and I play with lights and shadows. I will edit simple things like blemishes, small flaws and scars (only if you request this kind of removal). My main rule is: if it’s part of you, it remains where it is. About stretch marks, most women have them and most of the time poses and editing technique will hide them without any retouch. I will prove to you that you are beautiful without Photoshop and these will be the best set of photos you have of yourself! My post-processing techniques are more focused on color, contrast, sharpening, etc, rather than body morphing!
- At the end of the session, how does it work?
In 4 weeks, a selection of the best images (at least 30-35) will be completely retouched. At the end of your boudoir session we’ll set up an appointment for your private photo reveal, so that you can see, choose and buy your selected photos.
