Frequently Asked Questions

Q
Are you an all-female team?

A
We absolutely are.
Very rarely my hubby visits on ‘non shoot’ days as our maintenance guy (diet coke break?) other than that we’re all girls together!

Q
Will you share my images?

A
ONLY with your written/signed permission.
We are very used to being commissioned by professionals whose portraits must never be seen in the public domain.
Your portraits are even saved on a locked away, password protected server (not cloud) under a number, not your name.

Q
How do your clients know how to pose? They look like models!

A
Thankyou so much! I work very hard with our team to ensure that everyone has that finesse to their portraits.
We pose you down to your little finger, we even pose your hair!
I know how stupidly awkward I suddenly become when a camera is pointed at me. What should I do with my hands?!

Q
When should I book my session?

A
Don’t wait, that’s my advice.
There may never be a tomorrow and waiting to shift a little weight or waiting to feel confident, may never happen.
Did you know, we’re good for a stone just in posing?
Confidence? That comes during and after your journey with us.

Q
How will I select my chosen collection?

A
You are invited back to your Reveal Session a minimum of 7 days after your big shoot day.
We often book this at your design consultation so you know when this will be and can plan accordingly!
We don’t save unordered portraits, so you are strongly advised to book this at the best time for you.

Q
Must I choose between beauty and boudoir? Can I have both in one shoot?

A
This is what the design consultation is all about! We really want to know what’s important to you.
What you need most.
It can be empowering, confidence boosting boudoir with a dash of legacy beauty portraits…or the other way around.
Maybe one or the other!
We don’t mind, this is all about you.

Q
Are you LGBT friendly?

A
Absolutely!
We welcome everyone into my studio.
We’ve helped many members of the LGBT community explore and create the most incredible and emotional portraits.
You can be reassured of a non-judgmental and safe space, with a dash of excitement!

Q
Do you offer couple shoots?

A
For sure! Such a lovely way to celebrate your connection.
Let’s create something really special! If you want them to join you, just mention this at your booking call. They must attend our Design Consultation!

Q
Do I have to go nude?

A
Well, we’d only ever go ‘classy’ nude with a client. Artistic studies and implied nude.
It’s rarely ever at the start of a shoot, we usually work up to it together, depending on how you feel.
Be reassured, it’s entirely up to you!

Q
What can I wear?

A
We go through all of this with you at your consultation, lots of advice is given!
You can go for full lingerie sets, to snuggly jumpers, anything goes.
We have A LOT of gorgeous props and accessories, so the only thing we insist on you investing in, is your lingerie, if that’s part of your shoot. It needs to be a fabulous fit.

Q
How can I prepare?

A
We give you a handy Preparation Guide that literally maps out all the bits you need to consider on the runup to your big day.
We truly do hold your hand every step of the way!

Q
What are your shoot days?

A
We usually shoot on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays, so you might need to book a well-earned day off for your experience with us.
Design Consultations and Reveal Sessions can be on Saturdays, if that helps?

Q
Can I bring a friend?

A
You are welcome to bring whoever you love most to your design consultation or reveal session.
Your shoot is a very private affair, so we have a closed room on the day.
We don’t have the facility for anyone to wait, however the pub opposite is fabulous, plus we have coffee houses nearby!

Q
How long does the shoot last?

A
You are with us for 3(ish) hours. It may seem ages, however it goes super-fast!

Q
How much retouching do you do?

A
As much as you’d like really.
We don’t change you into someone else though.
Your hair and makeup artist will compliment your look in a polished way, what’s not to love about that?
We do get your portraits amazing in camera with gorgeous posing and flattering lighting (I wish a softbox could follow me around all day!)
We can remove scars/blemishes and most tattoos on request, just ask.

Q
I’m travelling across the country to shoot with you, where can I stay locally?

A
We are lucky to have some very lovely hotels close by and Airbnb. Details can be provided on request.
