What to Expect
CHOOSE YOUR LUXURY EXPERIENCE
I offers a variety of different sessions and studio locations which are fully customizable with your choice of luxury flush mount albums, folio boxes, digital files and more. From my full boudoir experience with makeup and hair to standalone photo sessions, I have something for everyone.
CHOOSE YOUR DATE
I have two beautiful studios available for you. The large studio in West Edmonton, Alberta and the home studio in Beaumont, Alberta. Let me know your preferred dates, and I will check with my team’s schedule to see which day and time works best for your session.
RESERVE YOUR SPOT
Once a date for your session has been settled, I’ll send you a photography service contract and a secure payment request for the agreed upon session fee. Both these items must be completed in order to confirm your appointment.
FILL OUT A QUESTIONNAIRE
After I confirm your appointment, I’ll email you my boudoir questionnaire. Through your answers I will get to know your style and your vision, how you want to be photographed, and other important details to help me prepare for your session. You’ll even be able to send me photos of ideas that you have, or invite me to your Pinterest board if you have one for boudoir.
PREPARE FOR YOUR SHOOT!
When you’re finished with my questionnaire, I’ll send you a very comprehensive list on how to prepare and what to expect. I’ve put together a lot of information including how to choose the best outfits, what to do in the days leading up to your session, what to expect during and after your session. During the entire course of your portrait experience, you can email or call me anytime with questions too!
DAY OF YOUR SESSION
It’s the day of your session and my team is so excited to meet you! I’ve already prepared for your session using the answers you provided in your questionnaire, so you just have to arrive on time and be ready to have an amazing time. If you’ve booked hair and makeup we’ll start your session by pampering you. Once you’re all dolled up and camera ready, I will direct and position you and even tell you where to look, so that you don’t ever have to stop to think about what to do next. Don’t worry if you’re nervous, it’s completely natural to be. Just remember, you’re in the hands of professionals and we’ll take care of making sure you look stunning in your photos. Even if you don’t book hair and makeup with my team, I definitely recommend getting it professionally done. Trust me it will make a difference in your pictures!
YOUR PHOTO REVIEW
When your photos are ready, you’ll receive an invitation to come back to my studio for your photo review. I’ll have selected the best photos to show you and each photo will have gone through one round of light retouching by the time you see them. During this session you will be selecting and paying for photos for your albums, other print items or any of the digitals files you may want to order.
ALBUM PROOFING + APPROVAL
If you ordered a professional designed album you will receive a email link in the following days to review the layout. With over 15 years of print design experience, you are in good hands. If you have any questions or concerns you can comment on the album pages online and it will submit any changes or comments you might have to me. I am confident you will love the results of having your beautiful images in print!
PRINTING + SHIPPING
After I've confirmed approval on your order, l’ll send it to my professional print labs for production. Once I receive your approval all printed materials are final and cannot be changed. All of my products are custom made for each individual client, so the production process itself will take time. 4-6 Weeks. Once our print labs have finished your order, they’ll send the finished products to my studio. If your order is for digital files only, you’ll receive a secure link to download your selected files.
YOUR ORDER IS READY!
It’s time for you to pick up your final products from my studio! Seeing your photos in print will be even more amazing than seeing them on the computer. Your beauty has been captured in a timeless work of art for you to treasure, and if you’re gifting your photos to a loved one you’ll be sure to blow his mind. For out of town clients, I do offer the option of having your order shipped to you.
I understand that privacy is very important to my clients. Many clients do not want to have their photos or identity shared online and I fully respect this!
I WILL NEVER PUT YOUR PHOTOS ONLINE OR SHOW THEM TO ANYONE WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION.
When you book a boudoir session with me all your photos are processed in-house (I do not send your photos overseas to be retouched!). I use only professional print labs for binding and printing, to further protect your privacy.
All the photos shown on my website are shared with permission. As my client you can choose whether to share your photos or not, it’s completely up to you. Some of my clients choose to share all their photos, some clients choose to share “anonymous” photos that don’t show their faces/identities, some clients choose not to share their photos at all. I want to stress that the decision is yours and I will never pressure you to share your photos if you don’t want to!
If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact me!
I have two size studios with multiple beautiful sets for you to choose from, so your photos are guaranteed to have tons of variety. Everything was chosen to give you the ultimate boudoir photography experience.
Most photographers do not have their own studio so if you want to be photographed in a beautiful space, you’ll have to book an expensive hotel. You can have the comfort and convenience of being photographed in the home studio or the larger natural light studio when you book with me.
The home studio is located in Beaumont, Alberta in my home. A large window, studio lights and boudoir props are available to create beautiful and dramatic boudoir images.
The larger loft studio is located in West Edmonton, Alberta. The lighting in this studio is perfect for boudoir. It receives a ton of light because there are literally windows everywhere. Natural light is perfect for boudoir because it’s soft, beautiful, and the most flattering for photography.
I also have a full range of professional studio lighting equipment to photograph more sensual and mysterious night sessions. I can find a look that will suit your style as well as your schedule.
