What do I specialize in?
I specialize in women's portraiture of all shapes and sizes.
I don't want my boss or family to see my pictures; will they be posted online or elsewhere?
No! I take privacy very seriously. You will be required to sign a privacy agreement/release at the time our session. The women on my site have given consent for public viewing of certain photos.
Do I Have to be nude?
No, some women do implied nude (covering breast with fabric or hands) things like that.
I do not shoot any full nudes. As you can see my work ranges, some women want to push the sexy more then others. Before our session I look at examples you have saved from online and speak with you. I can easily get a feel for the woman and her style. Above all SEXY/CLASSY is the goal.
I'm Nervous, is that normal?
Yess!!! lol... everyone is nervous, its not something you do everyday. But by the time your makeup is done and get comfy your nerves will settle. Every woman says "it was easy and fun!"
I want to do a session, but I don't look like the women on your site.
First things first, I don't shoot models. I shoot real women (just like you). They didn't look like that either walking in but after our makeup artist and the photo retouching you will look like you on your best day. I've shot women in their 50's, Doctors, stay at home moms, Teachers, Nurses, Massage Therapists and more . All of which are real women with insecurities just like
you and I.
When should I book my session to have product back by a certain date?
Book at least a month to a month and a half before you need your product. You may of course book earlier if you like. RUSH ORDERING IS AVAILABLE IF THIS IS LAST MINUTE FOR YOU. IT JUST DEPENDS ON MY WORK LOAD SO PLEASE CONTACT ME IF NEEDED.
What am I investing in?
First and foremost, timeless beautiful photos of yourself! Get that confidence boost! This is something every women should indulge in at least once! Keep them for yourself or gift them to your man, remind him of the shiny gem he has!
Session price covers my shoot time and guidance, studio use, our makeup and hair stylist depending on what package you select. It covers the time put into your fully retouched gallery for you to order from as well as my professional shooting and posing skills through out session.

Turn around time on retouching photos varies on our work load but you may inquire when booking a session.
What should I wear?
This really depends on what you are comfortable with. Some prefer something sexy while others are more conservative. Here are a few ideas. Classic lingerie, oversized men's dress shirt, Negligees and nighties, Bustier or push up bra, matching Bra and panties, corsets, Women's boxer shorts, Sexy heels and or Boots are a must, Yours mans flannel, sports jersey, guarder belts, knees highs, thigh highs, men's tie, wedding veil. We carry some props, your always welcome to bring your own. Please limit busy patterns and neon colors.
For Glamour some examples are Dresses, Fashion Tops, or maybe a fur shawl or coat. Pin up sessions should bring clothing specific to pin up.
How long does hair and make up take?
Make up normally takes about an hour. hair can depend on length and style so it can vary from 30 minutes to an hour in most cases.
Do you do boudoir parties and or bridal parties?
I no longer do groups. I will shoot up to two ladies in one day. I like to ensure each lady gets the full attention during hair and makeup as well as her session.
Where do we shoot?
We shoot in my private home studio in downtown Midland, MI.
Some tanning is ok but I don't recommend spray tan at all, colors are bad for lighting tanning is not needed for shoots with my retouching methods. Should you have strong tan lines I cannot guarantee they can be completely removed. Extra charge may discussed and charged depending.
