About My Erotic Boudoir Photo Shoot
Q. What if I want to remain anonymous?
All of our photo shoots are discrete, only the people that must be involved are involved and they all adhere to our strict guidelines. We value and respect your privacy and I am willing to sign a confidentiality agreement/ non-disclosure to keep your identity private should you request it.
Q. I need photo shoots done on a regular basis, can I get a professional discounted ‘bulk’ rate?
Yes, Inquire for details.
Q. Does the photographer provide wardrobe?
Due to the personal nature of most intimate apparel in these photo sessions, it is not advisable to have garments shared by models. If a model wants help with selection, coordination or purchase of outfits and accessories, the photographer can arrange a professional clothes stylist who can be hired to assist.
Q. Could I do the shoot with my partner, together?
Yes. You can request a photo shoot with one or more people involved, you would be splitting the package costs and time amongst you as you please.
Q. Could my partner and I be intimate for the pose?
Yes. As long as it is done in a classy and respectable manner and we have planned for it and agreed on it ahead of time.
Q. Can two couples share a session?
Yes – booking a “four-way” session is a great way for couples to increase erotic fun and share the costs of the photo session. If two couples do share a session, they don’t have to all be on camera at the same time; camera time can be shared or divided. There are additional charges though, to cover make-up cost for both couples etc..
Q. Do your sessions always involve nudity?
Nudity is not an expectation or requirement of any of our sessions. It is strictly up to each person to set their own comfort level in this matter, and we always respect and honor your requests without pressure or judgment.
Q. All of your models are so good looking…Do you have to be young and possess a model’s figure for your sessions?
With the exception of handful of individuals, all of the women depicted on out site and in our galleries are not professional models. Our sessions are about mood, sensuality, passion and eroticism – not about age or body dimensions. It is our job to always find the best camera angle and lighting to illustrate your inherent beauty and to interpret that into a fine image.
Q. Do we have to sign a release?
The signing of a model release is never required in a commissioned session. However, the photographer may ask that you consider signing a release if a session yields some particularly artful results – this would only be a request and not a requirement.

Erotic Photography Shooting Process
Q. Who selects the final outfits to be used?

The number of exposures or images taken for each outfit or scene will vary on many factors. The complexity of the pose and location, the lighting conditions (especially when employing natural light), and the experience and comfort of the model on camera. Generally, we will shoot about 60 to 100 frames for each scene, out of which the best 30-50 images will be selected for proofing.
Q. Who is in the room besides the photographer?
Besides the photographer, there may be a female makeup artist and occasionally a photo assistant.
Q. Can I bring my spouse, friend or partner to the photo shoot?

Yes. You can opt to do your own make up or book one of our professional make up and hair stylist.
