HOW DID LAUREN GET INTO BOUDOIR?
I used to be a wedding photographer! One of my brides asked if I would photograph her in some sexy lingerie so she could make an album for her groom on their wedding day. I was sooo nervous but I said yes! We had the session in her home and we both really had a great time. Lots of laughs and some killer photos later, I walked back to my car and knew I was officially hooked. I love that boudoir gives you permission to love your body as it is right now. It is such a beautiful message of self worth and positivity. I absolutely love what I do and if you want to learn more about me, check out this page.
HOW QUICKLY DO YOU BOOK UP?
We are currently booking about a month out. If you have an event you are planning for, please book at least two months in advance from your big day! If you are under a time crunch, please let me know.
WILL MY PHOTOS BE SHARED?
Privacy is VERY important to me! Many of my clients are so proud of their images they can’t wait to share them online and I’m always SO thankful to all of my clients who do sign a full release. They help me spread the positive message to other women! However, there are many that just don’t feel comfortable, or their partner doesn’t like it, and that’s totally okay! I will only ask you once and won’t hassle you.
WILL YOU RETOUCH ME PHOTOS? I’M WORRIED ABOUT CELLULITE, STRETCH MARKS, ETC.
The lighting in my studio is seriously the most flattering thing ever. BUT, I always have you fill out a retouching questionnaire during your reveal which goes over how much editing you’d like me to do. Generally, I even out skin tons and remove any temporary blemishes such as acne, pressure points from clothing and bruises. Overall lighting and color correcting and removing distractions. Scars, stretch marks, cellulite, etc are all personal preferences and I always get your permission before editing anything like that. I DON’T make you thinner or help you out in the boob or butt department.
I DON’T KNOW HOW TO POSE LIKE THOSE WOMEN…
One pose does not fit all. Your posing for your session will be as unique as you are! I always tell my clients a few things about posing:
- Boudoir is like a yoga session – come prepared to elongate, stretch and be in awkward positions. You might even be sore the next day!
- If the pose feels weird, you’re probably doing it right!
- I pose you based primarily on your personality, your body type and your outfits.
- I will never “force” a pose! If you’re not feeling a pose, I’m not feeling it either.
- You may feel a little awkward and unsure in the beginning but I never leave you to figure it out on your own.
- If I put you in a pose and you’re feeling it, AWESOME! Move your hands, play with your hair, look down, look up – work it girl!
DO YOU TAKE NUDE PHOTOS?
Absolutely! I love taking tasteful nudes and I think they add so much spice to your gallery. We can really play with shadows and even implied nudity to get some awesome photos. We always start slow, so even if you come into your session not thinking you want to do a nude set, you can totally change your mind.
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
YES. I want everyone to be able to indulge in a boudoir session. We offer flexible payment plans on everything.
DO YOU OFFER COUPLES SESSIONS?
Yes! Such a great experience to do together. You can add on a couples session to your experience for only $150.
I’M FEELING NERVOUS, IS THAT NORMAL?
Totally normal! Everyone gets a bit nervous before but once you’re five minutes into the session you’ll hit your groove and feel like a super star.
I WANT TO BOOK A SESSION FOR MY WIFE/GIRLFRIEND/FRIEND. DO YOU OFFER GIFT CARDS?
We do! You can head over to the shop and purchase one there!
