The Session

Step 1: Schedule free consultation

Step 2: Book your session

Shoots are held on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at my studio in Woodbine, Maryland from 10:00am- 12:00pm or 12:30-2:30pm. To reserve your date, a signed contract and your $400 session fee is due. This fee is due at booking and is non-refundable. This fee includes your pre-session consultation, professional makeup application, the session itself, the retouching time and your in-person session reveal, when I show you your final gallery of images and together we design the products in your chosen collection. After you book your session, we will discuss your payment plan options should you choose to take advantage of one of those.

Step 3: Pre-session consultation

Together we will discuss your vision for your session, discuss outfit choices and how you’d like to use your final images.

Step 4: The session itself

Sessions start at 10:00am or 12:30pm which is when your makeup will be applied by our makeup artist. You should plan to arrive with a clean face, with your hair already styled or if you’d like to add hair styling, let me know at booking and I will arrange for a hair stylist to come for an additional cost and your session would start earlier.

Step 5: Timing of session

Make sure to arrive promptly as we will not be able to extend your session for late arrivals. Makeup application takes 45 minutes and then we will begin your 60 minute shoot.

Step 6: The Session Reveal

If your shoot is held on a Wednesday or Thursday, you have the opportunity for a same day session reveal and ordering appointment in which we will meet at a local Starbucks at 8:00pm the same night as your shoot for your session reveal.  If your shoot is held on a Friday, you have the option of scheduling an evening or daytime session reveal the following week.  The studio is not open on Friday evenings or weekends.  During your session reveal, we will view a slide show of your loosely edited images.   (I will fully edit a few of each set so you can see how the final edits would look). We will walk through each image together slowly and choose the ones to include in your collection. This is also when you can choose which images you are ok with me sharing and if you would not like any of them shared, that is an option too on our model release form. A la carte folio boxes and albums start at $1500 and collections start at $1800. Pre payment plans are available so you have the option to pre pay for your collection in full or in monthly payments in the months leading up to your shoot and will get to choose from a list of free bonus gifts too! You can read more about this option on our investment page here.

Step 7: Delivery of products

Approximately 4 weeks after your Session Reveal, I will contact you to let you know that your products have arrived and are available for pick up.  If you’d prefer to have them shipped directly to you, you can do that for an additional cost.  

Step 8: Share!

Sharing your photos with your spouse and friends is part of the fun and if you purchase a collection, a phone app is included for easy sharing! For each friend you refer who books a full session with me, you will receive a $100 print credit to use towards your next boudoir or family portrait session!
