I don’t know how to pose sexy, do you help with posing?
Of course! I don’t expect you to know how to pose sexy or practice. Leave all the thinking up to me, I will guide you into every pose and expression down to the eyelash, so don’t worry.

Can I bring a friend to my session?
Absolutely! Just let me now ahead of time that you are bringing a friend. Females only please.

Can my husband/boyfriend come to my session?
Boyfriends and husbands that are present during your shoot actually change the overall mood of your session and may actually make you more nervous. We want you to be comfortable and relaxed so that it reflects in your photos. So this is a boyfriend/husband free zone! They are welcome to wait in the lobby during your session.

When should I schedule?
I would book your boudoir session far in advance to make sure you get your prints and albums in time. Because of the custom nature of albums, they take the longest turn around time.

Where do you shoot?
I conduct my sessions at the studio in Manassas, Virginia or on location in my favorite boutique locations through out the DC and Northern Virginia area during Boudoir Events.

I’m ready to book, what do I do?
Once you are ready to book, I will be forwarding you a boudoir contract to look over and sign as well as an invoice to pay your session fee online. Once those two items are received I will be forwarding you details on the location as well as my “How to Prepare” guide.

What should I wear/bring?
Bring a variety of lingerie or favorite outfits that makes you feel the best. Other items include his shirt, tank tops, boy shorts, heels…the options are endless. I encourage you to bring your own accessories too, but I have some on hand that can be used. Bring a variety of outfits. Most importantly, bring what makes you feel comfortable and sexy! It’s up to you on how much you want to show.

Professional hair and makeup is provided for every session. Pro MUA’s know how to apply camera ready makeup and will advise on what will look best.
