Common Questions

Where do the Boudoir or Pinup sessions take place?

My studio is located in beautiful Crown Point, Indiana. We are just 40 minutes from downtown Chicago and 2.5 hours from Downtown Indianapolis. We photograph women from all over Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. We have even had clients travel from Tampa Florida for their session. If you are traveling from a distance, we have a lot of great hotels in the area!

How much do I have to pay when I book my Boudoir or Pinup Session?

The full session retainer is due upon booking, to guarantee your date and time. Photos, Prints, Wall Art and & albums are purchased separately at your ordering appointment about 7 to 10 days after your session.

I’m not sure what I want to order yet, can I decide when I see my photos?

Absolutely, about 7 to 10 days after your session you will return to the studio to view your images and decide what product you want to purchase. We offer flexible payment plans to make what you want to purchase more affordable. I do not release products until the balance is paid in full.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes! We have in house plan, no interest payment plans and we have an outside financing company (Affirm) to work with also! We also offer pre-payment plans so that your purchase is paid in full prior to your session. Using our prepayment plans, gives you the opportunity to earn free items.

Is hair and makeup included with my boudoir or pinup session?

Absolutely, YES. Your hair and makeup will be done right here at the studio when your arrive for your scheduled session by one of our licensed hair and makeup artists. Your hair and makeup services also come with lashes. Hair and makeup services is included with your session fee.

Can I bring a friend along to my session for
moral support?

Absolutely YES, you can bring along a FEMALE friend to your session. Cause everything is more fun with a girlfriend. I just ask that they stay out of the way.

Do I have to wear lingerie?

No, you do not have to wear lingerie. Your options of what to wear are endless. Some people bring in dresses, jean jackets, leather jackets or their significant other's clothing or work clothing. It’s all up to you and but be sure you are 100% comfortable in what you are wearing, otherwise, it will show in your final images. We can set up a call before your session and I can help you figure out outfits.

How many outfits should I bring to my

You will be photographed in 6 outfits, but you should bring along at least 6 to 8 outfits if possible to use as backup options. An outfit that does not fit properly is the quickest way to not love your images.

Do you have outfits I can borrow?

Yes, I do have a small client closet you can borrow from. Most of what I carry are bodysuits because they look great on everyone. I carry sizes from XS to 4XL. If you choose to borrow from my closet please bring along a nude thong, to wear underneath. Also, I do not guarantee that I will have something that will fit you. So please ask or make an appointment to try on outfits before your session date.

I don’t know how to pose. I’m not a model.

This is by far the biggest concern for most of my clients! Please don’t worry – as I’ve said before, I work with my clients through every pose during their session. Please understand that posing I ask you to do will NOT feel like just another afternoon of lounging around on your bed. I tell my clients that the poses will feel weird, and you could be sore the next day! But the final product will feel amazing! None of my clients are models, they are everyday women just like you.

Do I have to share my photos online?

No, not unless you want to. All of the photos of the women you see online have signed a release that allows us to share their images. We take our clients privacy very seriously at our Indiana Boudoir Photography studio. Your privacy is our #1 priority

Do you Photoshop my images, I have cellulite/stretch marks/acne. Can you get rid of that?

In most cases Yes, that is part of my retouching process. I edit your images for color balance, light and exposure. I also airbrush your skin for a flawless look. I want my clients to look like themselves, just a bit more polished. Because this experience is a way to help you learn to love your body just the way it currently is, I will not do any body altering. I use lighting and posing to define the way I want your body to look. It is really important to me that my to love themselves the way they are and embrace themselves for who they are

Do you offer digital images?

Yes, you have the option of purchasing a digital collection only. They start at 10 images and go up from there. But I do encourage my clients to purchase a physical product as technology can be unreliable.

Will you help me plan for my session?

YES! After you book your session you will receive a questionnaire so I know what you are expecting from your session. You will also receive a lingerie guide and a preparation guide and well as many emails to answer your questions. If all those resources do not help you, I am available to help you out on the phone and in person.

What else should I know?

I am a fully insured limited liability corporation. I have been in business for over 12 years now and have photographed almost 1000 women just like yourself. Photoshoots are available to women 19 years and older ( you may be asked for ID)

"What you don't realize yet, is that these images aren't for 'right now'...they are for the 90 year old version of you who wants to look back. Photographs will one day be the ONLY proof of all the life you have lived."
