Every session takes place on location, and together we select a location that is the perfect fit for your budget and the overall look that supports your individual experience. Some women prefer their own homes, others like hotels, bed and breakfasts or other more creative spaces. I work with you to ensure that the location supports the overall feel we want as well as your budget. If the session takes place in your home, it's a good idea to clean and clear the space from anything too distracting, like gym equipment, toys, laundry, luggage, family photos, pet beds and anything that might look odd in your photos. I prefer to use natural light or minimal artificial lighting so the sessions flow naturally. When booking a room, I recommend asking for rooms with lots of natural light, space and great views. We'll chat or email about the overall look, and we'll pick a location that fits your aesthetic and budget.
Private Boudoir Sessions start at $400, Boudoir Packages start at $950. I offer a variety of print and digital products, including hi-resolution digital files, custom photo books & albums, custom mobile apps, canvas gallery wraps, framed fine art prints, folios and image boxes. There is no pressure to purchase anything, and no minimum order. You decide what works best for you.
ALL FEMALE BOUDOIR
Every boudoir session is a women only zone. My hair stylists, makeup artists and assistants are all female. All editing, retouching and post production work is done by me. We are very understanding and respectful of privacy and want you to feel comfortable, relaxed and confident throughout the entire experience.
HAIR & MAKEUP
I am fortunate to work with several incredible makeup artists & stylists who have worked on national ad campaigns, New York Fashion weeks and have beautified celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez and Supermodel Brooklyn Decker. Your boudoir session is the perfect opportunity to experience the very best in professional makeup and sexy bed-head hair styling. Because this is such an intimate investment and you want to look and feel your most beautiful, professional hair and make-up is highly recommended and a fun way to pamper yourself before the shoot. If you prefer to have your hair and makeup done prior to the session, I am happy to provide a list of top make-up artists, aestheticians, salons and stylists in your area.
My retouching style is very natural and subtle. With retouching, I remove the distractions that take the focus away from you. Distractions can be things like flyaway hairs, seam marks on your skin from jeans or strap marks from a bra, environmental eyesores like wall outlets or marks on furniture and bedding, and of course, skin imperfections like that blemish that shows up the morning of your shoot because of course it does. After your session, we'll meet up in my office to review your images and select your products. If we live too far away or you're a busy little bee, I'll send you a link to your very own password protected proofing gallery so you can review your pictures at your convenience. Every image you select or purchase is masterfully retouched for the very best results. For me, retouching isn't about filters, actions or assembly line batch effects, and I'm not here to change you into someone you're not. I retouch my work thoughtfully, and I'm passionate about creating the most stunning images that celebrate your individuality and one-of-a-kind beauty.
50% of your session fee along with the contract is due to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due on or before the session. I accept cash, checks and credit cards (there is a 5% service charge). I offer 10% off session & print/book purchases to active duty or retired military and their spouses. My dad served 25 years, so it's my little way of giving back to those families. I also offer 10% off your session if you elect to participate in before/after with your boudoir images, and 10% off session fee and print/book purchases to returning boudoir clients.There is no sales or service tax on your session or print or product purchases since I'm located in the great state of Delaware.
Privacy is another very important aspect of Haute Boudoir, and I only post photos with your permission. I've worked with a variety of high-profile women where privacy is of the utmost importance, so if you want to keep your session private, no images will be made public by me. I also never posts nudity, so you can relax knowing that your private parts will be kept, well, private!
I travel all over the US for private commissions and have my passport ready for those International inquiries. While I am located in the tax free state of Delaware, I travel frequently to nearby Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York City and Washington D.C. for private commissions. Depending upon where the session is located, travel fees may apply. Feel free to email me with any travel questions you may have.
You know what you like and you know what looks good and makes you feel sexy, which is why I ask you to bring a wide variety of wardrobe choices. I tell every woman to bring her favorite lingerie, and at least one solid bra & panty set, but really, the sky is the limit. And don't limit yourself to just lingerie. This is a time to have fun and try something you've always wanted to wear. Favorite little dress, coziest sweater, superhero underwear, lace corset, latex jumpsuit, mardi gras headdress...I could keep going, but you get the idea. I do suggest you bring more than you think you will need or want, and during our consultations, we can discuss wardrobe in detail.
