HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?
Give us a call at your earliest convenience, this is the easiest and fastest way to book your session. During the call we can answer all your questions, exchange ideas for the shoot, come up with a concept and develop a plan.

At the end of the call we will direct you to the booking section of our website to secure your date.

HOW LONG IS THE PHOTOSHOOT?
The length of each shoot depends on the package that you chose.

The clock starts ticking right on time, this is why we recommend you to be ready (hair & make-up) and on location at least 10 to 15 minutes before the scheduled time, allowing time to get settled in and change.

If you still need time to finish getting ready by the time you get to the location it's completely fine but remember, the clock is already ticking and whatever time you take, counts towards the total time you are paying for.

You will be notified 15mins before the end of your shoot to start wrapping up, let us know if you decide that you want to add extra hours to your session. It's not guaranteed that we can stay longer but if we can, every extra hour is priced at $100 per hour (15mins past the hour, counts as a new hour.)

I’M NERVOUS, I HAVE NEVER DONE A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT BEFORE.
We understand that it might be nerve-wracking to shoot this kind of art. Rest assured, however, that we are extremely well-versed in what we do. We will make sure that you are as comfortable as possible during your shoot! We also offer posing and styling coaching in order to maximize the quality of the photos!

MICKIE is a professional photographer who has been shooting this type of photography for many years now, and he will do his very best to not only make the shoot fun and comfortable, but to also produce the most stunning content possible!

Lets have fun with this! we promise that once the first few shots are taken, you will ease into it and the nerves will disappear!

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY PHOTOSHOOT?
We recommend to book your session at your earliest convenience, especially if you want your images ready by an specific date.

It is best to schedule your appointment at least a couple of weeks to a month in advance of the desired date for your photoshoot session.

Turn around times can take between 2 to 4 weeks after you place your order,
We also offer various expedited or rush options if there is a special occasion or date you need your images by.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
Bring a valid photo ID to verify that you are over 18 years old, and any outfits that make you feel confident and sexy. We have recommendations for some great lingerie brands, so if you need help, ask during our consultation and we can give you some great ideas! If you are interested in doing boudoir as a special gift, we definitely recommend bringing something personal from your special someone; an open button-down dress shirt, or even props like a football or guitar! We love when our clients get creative! You are welcome to wear shoes, heels, or just go with socks or bare feet. This is your special shoot and we want the wardrobe to reflect exactly what you are aiming for!

Please keep in mind that we have a limited amount of time. With this being said, we also understand the need to feel safe. If you would like to bring a guest, that is totally fine! But, please limit it to one person only.

PLEASE DO NOT bring children of any age to the studio. No exceptions. You may not bring your BABY or Toddler. This is incredibly important. We just need to stay legal and safe! Please make sure to make prior arrangements for childcare.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Fashion shoots: We recommend a couple of different wardrobe changes depending on the location we are shooting at, try something casual and fun and then maybe something more elegant or edgy

As far as Boudoir goes: Photos usually include wearing lingerie. We do not provide lingerie for use. You will be expected to bring everything you need for your shoot. There are no right or wrong things to bring, you define your sexy. If that's leather or lace, vinyl or cotton - you can bring a little of everything! t's always fun to bring some fun props, whips, cuffs, fresh flowers, whipped cream...If it's fun, it's in! If it's naughty even better! If you are doing this as a present, perhaps bring something of your partners to include? If a birthday celebration, maybe bring a cupcake or can of whipped cream to lick? Have fun with it!

Black and white are always great color choices, bold primary colors I feel can at times take away from the softness of photos. You should feel sexy and beautiful in no matter how much or how little you are wearing. Your confidence will show in every photos so don’t overthink your shopping.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY SESSION?
