Q : I'm a super private person - will you post my images online?
A : Don't worry! Nothing will ever be posted online without your explicit permission. Your images will be hosted in a private password-protected slideshow, but nothing will ever be blogged or posted publicly without your knowledge and permission.
Q : There are parts of my body that I really don't love. Will you retouch me to look better? Or can we avoid those areas?
A : Most of us have little spots on ourselves that aren't our favourite. I understand. I try to keep body alterations to a minimum. Any scars or acne will of course be removed, and I'm happy to give a little 'help' here and there. If you are looking for someone to make you look like an entirely different person than who you are, I'm not your girl. I believe in celebrating our bodies and that by participating in the Beauty Myth we are only hurting ourselves. You are *gorgeous* and I am very good at what I do. I will shoot you from your best angles and make you look and feel better than you ever thought possible!
Q : What should I wear?
A : Bring your favourite panties and bras. Bring a shirt that makes you feel sexy and a few pairs of heels if that's your thing. You will be as dressed or undressed as you like. We will start with you in your most conservative outfit, and get a little more saucy from there!
Q : Where does the shoot happen?
A : There are plenty of locations to choose from. I have a large light-filled studio in Toronto's east end where the majority of boudoir shoots happen. This makes for a lovely, simple, and bright shoot. If you are looking for something a little different, I recommend a hotel room or a (private) outdoor location. I'm happy to travel for you!
Q : Why should I do a boudoir session? I don't get it.
A : My amazing clients book boudoir sessions for many reasons. Some are giving their gorgeous images to their partners as a wedding, anniversary, or birthday gift. Others are celebrating a milestone in their lives -- either a big birthday (hello 40th birthday boudoir!), reaching a fitness goal, or just to make peace with their bodies. All of my clients walk away from their sessions feeling a renewed sense of confidence with their bodies. Remember -- it's not about losing weight for the session -- it's about celebrating your organic beauty!
Q : Do you do couple's boudoir?
A : For the right couple, yes. Let's chat - I would love to hear about what you have in mind.
Q : What if I'm not skinny?
A : These sessions are about loving your body. The skin you're in is the most perfect body you've got! Every body is sexy and I know how to work with every body type - from teeny tiny to voluptuous and beyond.
