Where are you located?
My studio is located within walking distance of Penn Station and around the corner from the 1 train 28th stop.
Location shoots are also available
How can I be sure my pictures are safe?
Clients receive a email with a link, only you can open, to download their images. Once the retouching is finished, I will mail a DVD of all the images in high resolution. The images belong to you, and I only use images where clients have agreed to sign a release. If clients are interested in having their images featured on my website, we can work out discount on the rate in exchange for permission.
I have never been in front of camera before, a bit nervous, what should I do?
I am great at posing clients and will help you every step of the way. Together we will figure out which outfits suit you best and which poses flatter your body type. Check under how to prepare for a shoot for a list of helpful tips. Remember this should be fun!
What is involved with retouching?
Each image will be retouched to magazine quality. Retouching includes color correction, skin smoothing, fixing flaws and wrinkles in clothing, removing flyaways and stray hairs, and correction of any problem with the props, furniture and backdrops.
If you have any special instructions, please let me know when you send your images for retouching.
What is the cancellation policy?
All cancellations/rescheduling must be done no less than 48 hrs by phone before your scheduled shoot time. Your deposit is non-refundable, but you may reschedule your shoot up to 6 months of your original shoot date.
How long will it take to receive my images?
You receive the initial images, in color and black/white, emailed within 24 hrs. Retouching takes 7-10 days, depending on what needs to be retouched. If you prefer a DVD of images mailed, allow 3-5 days for delivery
What other types of photography do you offer?
Even though boudoir is my specialty, I am also available for events, plus-size fashion/model portfolio, head shots.
When are you available to shoot?
I am available, nights, weekends or during the day. 7 days notice is required for booking shoots.
What should I bring to wear?
In our initial consultation, we will go over details of the lingerie and accessories you have… I have lots of different props, gloves, pearls, pin-up outfits and shoes, etc…Together, with your lingerie we will find the most flattering outfits
Can I bring a friend?
If bringing a friend makes you feel more comfortable, of course.
What if I want to do my own make-up or bring a friend to do make-up?
Yes, you can do that. Just make sure whether it is you or your friend who does the make-up that they know how to do make-up for a professional shoot. Lighting is very different in a studio and regular make-up does not translate well with this type of lighting.
Will anybody else be in the studio with us.
During the shoot, it will only be me, you and the make-up artist.
What does each “look” mean
Look refers to the background, one look means that there is only one set-up, but you can change your outfit a few times. Two looks, would include two completely backgrounds, and few outfits for each “look”. And so on…
How long does a shoot take
Depending on the how many looks you are doing. Each shoot I allow an hr for hair and make-up, and shooting takes about 45-1 hr for each look, that times includes changing your outfits.
How many images will I get in the end
You get about 150 – 175 images for each hour we shoot. You receive all your images via email, both in color and blk/wht, 24 hours after the shoot.
