Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked Questions

  • Q. I want to have some sexy pictures made, but it's a little out of my comfort zone. How much/how little do I need to take off?
  • A. You decide what's comfortable and sexy for you. If bare shoulders and legs are as far as you want to go, that's totally cool. If you feel sexy then your pictures will be sexy!
  •  
  • Q. Do you do nude photos?
  • A. Yes. You can be as bare as you dare. I am comfortable and adept at photographing you any way you like. After 22 years behind the lens, I've seen it all!
  •  
  • Q. Do you ever photograph men?
  • A. Yes. All *respectful* gentlemen are welcome. Please note that I have my husband assist me when photographing men I have not yet worked with. I will refuse service to anyone who behaves inappropriately towards me.
  •  
  • Q. I am under the age of 18, but I want shots for my portfolio. Will you photograph me?
  • A. No. ANY photography that is sexually suggestive or involves lingerie or full/partial/implied nudity will ONLY be done with clients 18 or over, who have a valid, state issued photo ID. Period. I don't care what your mom, agent, or boyfriend says.
  •  
  • Q. Will my photos show up on the internet? Will anyone else see my photos?
  • A. Not unless you grant your permission. The photos on this website are all very graciously approved by the sirens who posed for them. Since I do absolutely everything from start to finish, the only people who see these images are you and I - and those of your choosing.
  •  
  • Q. Can I bring my friend/mother/boyfriend?
  • A. Guests are welcome anytime *except* during the actual photo shoot. Distractions during the session are not welcome, and guests giving you competing directions to my own take the point out of you hiring a professional. The studio has an open floor plan, so there is no waiting room. Please plan accordingly!
  •  
  • Q. Do you do retouching?
  • A. Yes. I provide minor blemish retouching as a complimentary service. Additionally, I have over fifteen years experience behind the Photoshop wheel, and I can retouch literally *anything*. If you have scars, burns, unfortunate tattoos or some other issue you would like manipulated, I can absolutely take care of it, for an additional fee. I can even change your size or shape! Ask me ahead of time if you have a specific issue, and I can give you a quote.
  •  
  • Q. I don't know how to pose. Will you guide me?
  • A. You bet! Bring your enthusiasm and I will help you find the most flattering positions for your figure. It also doesn't hurt to spend a little time posing in the mirror at home, trying out your planned wardrobe pieces a few days ahead of your session. ;-)
  •  
  • Q. I don't look like a model. Is this for me?
  • A. Most models don't look like models, either. I can work with you regardless of your size, height, or age (you must be 18 or over, of course). I know your concerns, I take them seriously, and I work it. I also retouch blemishes as a courtesy- I think beautiful skin is important in photos! More extensive retouching is available for an additional fee.
  •  
  • Q. Is there anything I should do to prepare for our photo session?
  • A. Yes! A manicure and a pedicure. Groom your brows, and attend to any depilatory issues beforehand- particularly if we are doing nudes. Exfoliate and moisturize. If you like to tan, schedule accordingly. Get a good night's sleep! Stay hydrated, and have a light, nourishing snack before you arrive. I encourage you to invest in professional hair and makeup styling before your appointment, including false eyelash application. Remember- you are having your fabulousness immortalized here- so go for it!
  •  
  • Q. What do I wear? Do you provide costumes/wardrobe?
  • A. You will be bringing your own wardrobe. Creativity goes a long way here! If you are thinking about wearing lingerie, consider all the possibilities- matching bra and panty sets, corsets, waist cinchers, garter belts, retro slips and girdles, latex cinchers and corsets, transparent robes...There are so many gorgeous options. Accessorize your outfits with the same attention to detail that you would give to a special date. Jewelry, belts, hats, scarves, shoes- let your imagination run away with you! The internet is an amazing resource for beautiful, unusual items- do yourself a favor and try looking at some stores online that you might not have access to at the mall. I have included a few lingerie links below to get you started- I am not affiliated with any of these merchants in any way, I just really like their stuff! A quick note about hosiery: take your anatomy into consideration when choosing what type to wear! Thigh highs, the type with the elastic at the top, can make all but the fittest, leanest legs look squishy by giving "muffin top"- you know what I'm talking about. They can also be bitey and sit unevenly. A *very* sexy alternative would be a classic pair of stockings, without the elastic top, and a fabulous garter belt to hold them up.
