Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

I live and work out of Las Vegas, Nevada. I occasionally travel around the country for clients and have dreams of eventually traveling around the world. If you would like to book a session anywhere in the world, contact me and let's set it up!

How much does it cost?

Prices are shown on the Investment page!

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, 50% of the session fee is due at the time of booking in order to put you on the calendar. The remaining balance is due one week before your session.

What if I need to reschedule?

Life happens! As long as you contact me within 48 hours of your session, you can reschedule your session to another available date. But if you do not contact me before that window of time, you will forfeit your deposit and will need to put down a new deposit.

What payment options do you offer?

I accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Venmo.

What precautions are you taking due to the pandemic?

I get tested weekly through my day job, and I make sure that my test comes back negative before doing any photo shoots that week. I am limiting my bookings to one client per week. I am doing FaceTime consultations instead of in person, I do an online proofing gallery, and I deliver the photos digitally to minimize contact. I clean and disinfect the set before and after each session. I wear a mask and stay six feet away at all times during the session to help protect both the client and myself since my clients don't wear masks during their photo shoot. If you would like to book and want any extra precautions taken, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Are you SW friendly?

Yes! The majority of my clients are actually sex workers, usually as providers or content creators. I even offer free or discounted sessions for content creators who also let me use the images we created together. When booking your session please ask about this discount.

Why should SWers work with content creators?

I usually answer this question in three parts: Part 1 - Most SWers self shoot their own content, and that works perfectly fine. But there are some drawbacks. They’re limited to their own equipment, their lighting setup, their physical limitations when it comes to distance from camera to subject and limited camera angles to name a few. So working with a content creator allows SWers to tap into a photographer’s and videographer’s high end camera equipment, lighting setups, creative concepts, different shooting angles, plus their network of fans and followers. Part 2 - Networks are often overlooked on social media. A SWer who posts their content only reaches his or her immediate audience. But when someone works with a content creator who is actively marketing the work they created together, everyone’s audience becomes larger and the odds of content going viral increases. Part 3 - Last but not least, when someone works with a professional photographer or videographer, the production value of the content increases. Which means you’re able to sell your content for higher prices, earning you more money. So not only will you be able to be seen by more people by working with a content creator, you’ll also be able to charge more for your work.

Everyone you post looks like a model and I don't look like that. Would you still shoot with me?

Absolutely! I make it my personal mission to make every single client look like a supermodel. However, in full disclosure, most of the people in my portfolio galleries are in fact models. This is because they signed image releases allowing me to post their photos. Most boudoir clients do not sign releases because they are taking these photos for themselves or a significant other and don't want the world seeing them. Most models take photos for the world to see and that's why there's a bunch of their photos on my website and social media. I have worked with both men and women and even some couples. I have worked with all sizes, ages and ethnicities. I encourage everybody to try boudoir to get gorgeous photos of themselves, raise their self esteem, gain self confidence, empower themselves, and/or whatever they're trying to get out of this experience. If you do end up booking me and feel like a supermodel after your session, sign an image release so I can post your photos on my website and you can be the change you want to see in my portfolio!

I have never done this before and I don't know how to pose or what to do. Can you help me?

Yes! Most of my clients have never been in front of a camera before. I will coach you through the entire process, telling you exactly what to do and how to pose. The most apparent and repeated comment in the testimonial section is how comfortable and relaxed my clients feel, so you are in great hands!

Are the photos edited?

Yes! Within 72 hours of your session, I comb through every photo we took and take out all the duplicate photos and everything that’s blurry, blinking, anything with bad composition/lighting/pose, etc. Then I upload the best 25 or so unedited proofs to a password protected online gallery where you can choose which ten photos you want edited. I’ll edit all purchased photos in Photoshop, correcting white balance, color, exposure, crop, etc. and then retouch the photos to take out any blemishes, flyaway hairs, etc.

Is hair and makeup included in my session?

No, nothing is included in your session fee except the actual photo shoot itself and the first ten edited photos. Everything else is additional, including hair and makeup, the shooting location, extra edited photos, etc. I have had the privilege to work with a lot of the area’s best hair and makeup artists and can refer you to some of my favorites who I love working with.

Do I have to be naked in the photos?

Absolutely not! We will only do what you’re comfortable with. Some clients don’t show any skin at all, while others do choose to be naked. Even if you are nude, you don’t have to reveal anything in the photos either. We can use different angles, props, limbs, etc to imply nudity without showing anything. Your comfort and privacy are of the utmost importance and everything will be done to ensure both during your session.

Do you provide the wardrobe?

No, the client is expected to bring their own outfits to the session. I love helping my clients pick out their outfits, so if you want help choosing what to bring, I’d be more than happy to help guide you and show you examples of different outfits. I even have a Pinterest board full of outfit ideas that I can share with you!

What equipment do you use?

I use a Canon 5DM3 and a 35mm, 85mm and 70-200mm lenses. I edit on a MacBook Pro using the Adobe Creative Cloud suite including Photoshop CC and a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. I also use a Lomo Instant Wide and Polaroid One Step instant camera and scan them in with an Epson FF-680W scanner. For lighting I have an Einstein strobe with a beauty dish and softbox, three speed lights, a Diva Ring Light Nebula LED and a Yonguo YN360 II LED stick.

What if the question I have isn't on here?

Send me a message and I'd be more than happy to answer it for you!
