investment and details

Shoot packages start at $375.

Options include hair and makeup styling, location choices, black & white and color variety in editing, and a guided ordering consultation. For full package details and options, please download a current brochure.
Most clients opt for the full experience, with professional hair & makeup styling, and a finished album or box of prints.

I will guide you through making your selections and choosing the perfect way to enjoy your artwork.

What's included in the fee?

It depends on the package. You can download the brochure for specifics. Prints, books, wall art, and image boxes can also be ordered after the session. 

Options include: professional hair and makeup styling, length of shoot time & looks, personal shopping for lingerie, albums, wall art, portfolio boxes, and more.

I’m SO NERVOUS! I’m not sure if I can do this. Can I meet you before deciding?

Yes, of course. EVERYONE is really nervous! It is my job to make you look beautiful, feel comfortable, and have fun by the time the session is over! I offer a personal consultation before your shoot, if desired, so that we are not strangers when the day comes. I offer this consultation at no charge. It’s normal to be nervous. It will pass quickly. You will have a great time. It usually takes 5-10 minutes for you to completely forget your nervousness, and start having a blast. You’ll see. 😉

What are the payment terms?

You pay up front for the package you choose. For this, there are a few options:
1) Visa/Mastercard: My booking page takes most major credit/debit cards, right on the site.
2) Payment plan: You can do a 6 month, no interest / no payment plan through Paypal.

Contracting and payment can be done online. Because I am a small, specialty studio, and I have limited shoot availability, I must have the contract and payment before turning away others for your time. As stated above, I often book 1-2 months out, so please inquire early if you have a gift-giving occasion coming up.

What's your specialty? What sets you apart from all of the other boudoir photographers out there?

I consider my boudoir work to be more fine art-inspired, with a vintage feel. I use a lot of black & white, a lot of directional, moody lighting and natural light. My work tends to be more suggestive than sexual. There is a definite intimate feel to it, but I play more with light, shadow, and curves than overt, full body poses. I celebrate the woman as part of a beautiful creation, and I seek to empower her, even to transform her self image.

I have almost 20 years of experience with this type of photography, and my clients range from early 20’s to about 60 in age, with bodies that have lost and gained weight, bore children, had surgery, and are perfectly imperfect…just like you…and me.



What is the professional styling?

I have a professional hair and makeup artist on site, who can custom tailor your look, for just the right amount of “polish.” She will even out skin tones, bring out the color in your eyes, and contour your best facial features. She will consult with you on your preferences and style. Some clients want glam, some vintage, some natural…most of our clients want to still look like themselves, with a little “pow,” rather than looking like someone else entirely. You choose, it’s your day!

Lashes ARE included!


Do you retouch the photos?

YES. I fully retouch every image you order, including smoothing skin, correcting blemishes and minor flaws, minor body contouring, etc. I do believe there’s such a thing as too much Photoshop, though.  I want you to still look like yourself.




What should I bring?

Once you book, you will receive an app with helpful instructions on what to bring, how to prepare, where to shop, as well as other helpful suggestions.

You provide your own lingerie/outfits, unless you choose the "personal shopping" option, which means that I will buy the lingerie for you to keep. 

There are many suggestions on lingerie and ideas on the app, as well as on my pinterest boards.


How much are your finished products?

They range from $385-1800, generally, but it depends on the size and materials. All albums are custom made. Prints start at $45. Canvas gallery wraps and fine art prints are also popular options. Because of the possibilities for customization, I do not have one printed price list of everything I offer. You can book a package with a book included, or order after the shoot. You will receive our professional help choosing everything, from the best images, to the perfect album cover material.



Will there be other people in the room?
I usually have my (female) makeup artist or assistant help with lighting, move sets, and provide touch-ups, but if you are uncomfortable with that, please let me know.

Can I bring a friend for moral support?
I don’t prohibit this, but I discourage it. In my experience, clients who have a friend in the room always feel and act especially uncomfortable. The presence of the friend seems to make them much more nervous, for some reason.

Will my pictures be online?
I won’t share your identifiable images anywhere (online, in-studio, etc.) without your permission. I do post “weekly teasers” sometimes, that do not show identifying features, on the Serendipity Boudoir FB Page. I never tag my clients in boudoir photos.



Are you willing to photograph me nude?/ Do I have to be nude?

Nude shots are a frequent request. I will only do tasteful and artistic nude photos. You are NOT at all expected to do nude photos. I will not suggest that you disrobe beyond your comfort level. I typically leave it to you to request this if it’s something you want. I

There are samples of my style of nude photography on this website. 



Do digital files come with my shoot?

Ah, the digitals. I DO include the digital copies of my finished products, for archival purposes. These copies are retouched and sized the same as what you ordered (for example, an 8x10 album include the finished, 8x10 digital files.) 

I DO have the option of getting a custom, private app with your ordered image files, as well. It's a fun way for you or your partner to "always have them with you."

I DO NOT release unretouched "proof" files for printing or display. You are commissioning artwork from someone who has a finished vision. My editing is as important to the final product as the shoot itself. 

You may purchase full res digital files without purchasing tangible products, but they are my most expensive product, starting at $150 per image.

What should I expect at my shoot?

When you arrive, we will go through your styling preferences, and your look will be custom designed for you. My professional hair & makeup artist will tailor your look to your preferences and your best features.

We will go through your wardrobe, and I will help you select the most flattering pieces for your shoot. I will direct your posing, so all you have to do is breathe! You are going to have the BEST time. You may not believe it now, but this is fun!
The shoot takes about an hour to 90 minutes.

We go through the proofs together. I will help you choose the best of the best, and give you my recommendations for how best to enjoy them, whether it be an album, wall art, or a box of matted prints.
