FAQS

Your boudoir session and ordering session are all held in our gorgeous photography studio located in Grinnell, Iowa

Everyone is!  It’s totally normal.  Don’t worry, we will have SO much fun, and once you see your images, you’ll realize it was worth it!

ABSOLUTELY.  I will demonstrate poses for you and show you exactly what to do and where to look.  No, you don’t need modeling experience!  Every woman you see on our website is a normal woman just like you.  I will coach you through posing and facial expressions from head to toe.  You won’t have to worry about a thing. 

We find that many women feel self-conscious about investing in something that makes them feel special and beautiful, but the majority of our clients walk away with DOZENS of stunning portraits in their albums, for their walls, or as keepsakes.  We create beautiful artwork to commemorate this experience, and you may be thinking you don’t want much…and then realize when you see your photographs that you want them all!  You don’t want *just a few* to share online after a 2 hour+ luxury experience, trust me!  We offer pre-session payment plans (with perks!) however we also have a variety of smaller product options that are more budget friendly.

Many MANY of our clients do their boudoir shoot JUST for themselves.  Seriously!  You don’t need a reason to justify feeling amazing and confident, because this is for you.  

First, send us an inquiry through the website, and we’ll get back to you with a few more details.  Then we’ll hop on the phone for a consultation to talk about your dream shoot!  I’ll ask you questions about makeup, hair, outfits, products we offer, give you tips for preparing for the shoot, and go over any questions you may have.    We’ll pick a day and time for your session.  To officially book your session, you’ll need to pay your session fee as a retainer and sign our contract.  

We have LIMITED weekend availability, primarily due to weddings and availability of makeup artists.  If you are interested in a weekend appointment, please contact us at least 3 months in advance.  Our session rates for Saturdays is $500

At the moment, the majority of our sessions are held in the afternoon, and typically start around 1 or 1:30 PM.  We occasionally have openings earlier in the day.  

Your boudoir experience typically lasts around 4-4.5 hours.  We’ll start with hair and makeup, and then your photo session will take place over 2 hours or so.  If you choose to have a same day viewing and ordering session, you can head out for some errands and a bite to eat, and then we’ll have you come back in to finalize your order!

Once things are scheduled and your retainer session fee is paid, it is non-refundable.  Please notify at least one week in advance for reschedules.  If there is an emergency, we can apply your retainer to a new date.

Each of our boudoir sessions includes an ordering appointment.  This can take place on the same day as your session (no waiting!), usually about an hour or so after we wrap up (just enough time to run a few errands, grab a bite to eat, etc) OR we can schedule your order appointment for 7-14 days after your session.  Orders are typically ready for pickup or shipping about 2-3 weeks after your order is placed.

We accept checks, cash, major credit cards, and Venmo.  We offer pre-payment plans for sessions and our packages as well.

How your images are used by me is entirely up to you. I will not publish photos anywhere unless I have your written permission.  Some clients prefer to keep everything private, others are excited to share publicly – it is 100% your decision for sure!
