Frequently Asked Questions
•I want to do implied nude, but don't want to show too much - even to the photographer. Can I stay modest while still doing this style?
•I want to include a mixture of styles (boudoir, portraits, implied nude) in my session. Can I do that? Will it cost extra?
Your session is entirely private. I do not share client images, post them to social media or any other website. When your proofs are ready to view, you will access them with a unique password. You may share your proofs or pictures with whomever you wish, but I leave that to your discretion.
Is my session private? Do you share my images?
I perform basic blemish removal/skin tone correction on all finished pictures. If you have something beyond the basics, like hiding tattoos, there may be an extra charge. I do not do body re-shaping, so if you have an area that you're unhappy with, let me know so I can use posing to make things more flattering for you.
Do you offer retouching? Can you remove bruises, scars, blemishes, etc?
I don't mind partners or friends being present, but when it comes to picture time I may be a bit bossy about where they sit/stand if the shooting space is cramped so we aren't falling all over each-other.
Can I have someone with me during the shoot?
I do not provide hair/makeup service. I can lend artistic suggestions or refer you to a professional, but in general I advocate doing what you normally do. You will feel more comfortable and natural if you're not wearing a mask.
Can I do my own hair and makeup to save money?
The average session takes around an hour to an hour and a half. Depending on outfit/location changes it could be more or less.
How long will the session take?
Everyone feels a bit silly at first, but I will guide you into some really nice poses and before you know it you'll feel like a pro!
I don't know how to pose, I feel like a clutz.
Absolutely! The technicalities of posing and positioning of props to retain modesty will be discussed before each "look" in a shoot. You never have to show more than you want! I will teach you how to pose and can even leave the room while you position yourself. You just call me back when you're comfortable that your covering everything you want covered.

Most sessions include a mixture of styles. There is no extra cost to change poses, locations, outfits, etc. Just make sure you mention this during your consultation or before the session begins.

On average, I can get your proofs to you in a week or less. Most people prefer to receive digital proofs, which can be accessed via the "Client Area" of my website. Print proofs may take an extra few days to a week.
How long will it take to see my pictures?
Payment plans are kind of built into the way I charge. Up front cost is only a small session fee, prints, books, and digital images are paid for after the session and there is no time limit for you to order.
Do you offer payment plans or discounts?
After your session, your proofs will be available in a private gallery. You can select your favorites and order high quality prints, canvas prints, metal prints, and digital files directly from the gallery. You can also make your selections for a photo book, or select your favorites and submit your order via email or over the phone. I can accept payment for your session and your prints by credit card, cash, or check.
After my session, how do I order my pictures?
I certainly do! The most popular way men get "in the picture" is with a couples' session, but guys who want to surprise their sweetie with some great photos is becoming more and more common, I've even done it myself. I'm hoping to find some men brave enough to allow me to post samples of their sessions on my website and in my book.
Do you ever photograph men?
This is the hardest question to answer, because it depends on how you would like to see your pictures. THE CLASSIC session includes a beautiful 8x6 layflat photo book with your favorite ten images from the session - a convenient way to hold or display ten 8x12 photos! The basic session takes around an hour and CAN include outfit/location changes. The basic session costs only $110, and can be paid by cash or almost any card in existence. After the session, you can view your images and pick out options like canvas prints, album blocks, digital files, and pretty much any other way you could imagine to display your images. THE MINI session includes an hour of camera time, outfit/location changes, and high-resolution digital files, with the option to purchase prints and products for only $85! Hair/makeup is not provided but is available at an additional cost. Date/time availability is subject to the hair/makeup artist Album upgrades such as leather/vegan leather covers etc. can be added at an additional cost.
