Frequently Asked Questions
What is "Intimate Lifestyle" and "Boudoir" Photography?
Intimate Lifestyle Photography is un-posed in nature and aims to capture people in intimate scenarios that are considered regular for them, we offer these sessions for couples also!
Why would I need a session?
Our clients each have their own reason for choosing us and we are honoured to be included in their journey regardless of the reason. Our sessions have been created as a way to nourish feelings of self-love and empowerment. We understand the idea of an Intimate Portrait Session can be both exciting and terrifying so we are there to give you handy tips and advice leading up to your session and throughout your session we are right beside you demonstrating poses and evoking emotion so we can deliver beautiful art to you! All we ask is that you trust the process, relax and have fun. We take care of the rest!
How long will my session last?
Sessions generally range from 1 - 2 hours. If you're including professional Hair and Make-up in your session this can take an additional 1-2 hours.
Will I be nude?
You can wear whatever makes you feel most sensual, if that's nude then we love to get creative with implied nudity during our sessions (illusion of nudity) or nude. If lingerie is what works for you that's fantastic too!
What should I do to prepare for the session?
1. Drink plenty of water, exfoliate and moisturize leading up to your session (including exfoliating lips) for beautiful dewy skin
What's included in my Session Fee?
Our session fee/retainer reserves your date and time as well as complimentary professional hair and make-up, any preparation for your session, access to our exclusive client wardrobe with sizes 6-26, coaching and demonstrating throughout your session, signature image editing of your Gallery and one reveal and order appointment to place your product order.
Should I tan before my session?
Short answer. No. Please.
Should I wax before my session?
If waxing isn't your thing, I wouldn't recommend doing it for your session.
I want to get a new tattoo, how long should I wait to have my session?
Please ask your Tattooist what they recommend for an accurate timeframe for the work you're getting done. We recommend at least 3-4 weeks as a good rule of thumb to ensure your skin has healed.
Can you Photoshop me?
We retouch all our sessions to include light smoothing, reduce redness, remove blemishes etc.
Can I bring a friend?
If having a friend close by is going to make you more comfortable, we encourage you to do so. Our policy is not to have friends with us in the room during your session to help keep the focus and experience about you however we can leave a door open and have your friend in the next room. We want you to be comfortable.
Where will my session be held?
Sessions generally happen in our Launceston based studio. Alternate locations are available by request and we sometimes run themed limited edition sessions that can be run outdoors or at different locations.
How will I know what to do?
You don't need to know what to do, at all! that's what I'm here for I walk you through posing right down to the tips of your toes including coaching on facial expression for that perfect sultry look! I also demonstrate and show you how to move and where to look. I just ask that you have faith in the process, take a deep breath and follow my lead, we've got this!
How many outfit changes can I have?
We recommend between 3-4 outfits for a session and sessions include 3 outfit changes (4 outfits in total). We have an exclusive client wardrobe (size 6-26) with accessories that you are welcome to include in your session.
I don't wear ultra sexy lingerie, what other options do I have?
Whatever makes you feel your best and that you're comfortable in. Some clients choose to wear a sports jersey, CK underwear, oversized tshirt or shirt etc. A good thing to look for when choosing your outfits is texture, we recommend having a couple of options i.e lace, velvet, silk, knit, leather, cotton. It's a great way to add depth to your images.
Do you have options to shoot outdoors?
We often have seasonal outdoor sessions available. If you're interested in an outdoor session, please let us know! There may be different options available depending on the time of year.
What kind of products do you have?
We aren't humble when it comes to the products we offer. Our products have been hand selected over years to be of the highest quality, printed with archival ink to last a lifetime.
How many people will be in the room with me?
Your Photographer and possibly one assistant. Both your Photographer and any assistant helping with the session will be female. If this is of any concern to you, please let us know prior to your session date, we're happy to work with individual requests wherever possible.
Do my photos have to go on Social Media and Online?
Absolutely not. If you want to share them we are always happy (ecstatic even!) to receive permission to do this, it's great for potential clients to see a variety of previous clients who have experienced a session with us.
