Let’s celebrate my 30th birthday with ERP’s biggest sale yet, k?
What's this all about, you ask? Well, If you've made it this far, you're definitely in my VIP Facebook group. So you know all about boudoir or have at least seen my boudoir photography. Our boudoir sessions are incredibly empowering, uplifting, and affirming. It's a whole big thing. You get pampered and cheered on and then we're instantly all friends and I get to show you off to the group and all the members gush over how gorgeous you are(or not if you’re a more private person! I never share without permission!). Sounds amazing, right?
Here's the deal:
This sale includes everything a normal boudoir session includes.
Light snacks, refreshments (including champagne if you’d like! [it’s a breakfast food])
Expert posing direction
Help with outfit selections, including access to anything in the studio wardrobe
Professional image retouching and a full image reveal with your own slideshow viewing
Normally my session fee is $400. This always includes everything listed about. Digital images and printed products are purchased separately, at your image reveal and ordering session. For this sale, though, I’m knocking my session fee down to $30 to honor this step into the next decade of my life. YOU ladies have made the last few years of my twenties absolutely unforgettable so this is my way of saying THANK YOU BUNCHES!
Can I book a couple’s session with the sale price?
Yep! Sure can. You know I love love!
What if I want to do a session at my house?
I love in-home sessions! I do have to charge a travel fee for locations more than 10 miles from the studio for myself and my makeup artist.
I have NO idea what to wear. Can you help?
Absolutely! I send multiple in-depth guides in your welcome email that will go over outfit choices and how to prepare for your session. It will answer just about any question you may have but I’m also available to chat on the phone if you have specific questions!
Do I need to lose that extra weight before my session?
Nooooope! Well, ultimately that's up to you. I usually book a few months out so a boudoir session is actually a great motivator to reach fitness goals! However, your weight does not qualify or disqualify you for a session. You should be celebrated at ANY size. When we put on some weight we tend to be really hard on ourselves and sometimes our self esteem can dip. A full photoshoot with a professional makeover can be really amazing during these times. Sometimes you need to hear how amazing you are from other people and the number on the scale means nothing concerning your goddess status!
What should I bring?
So, this is different for everyone for the most part. Other than needing to bring in a nude and/or black thong if you want to access my studio wardrobe, you'll bring in the outfits we've discussed and that's about it! In our pre-session phone consultation we'll go over your outfits more in depth. We try not to use too many props in our photos so I'd advise keeping props to a minimum, maybe only bringing one or two things. Props that I do like: instruments, books, mugs, whips, chains... that escalated quickly.
Can I bring a friend?
I know it seems like this would help calm your nervous, and sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. I do allow up to ONE guest at your session with a few rules.
You MUST let me know at least 24 hours in advance
No more than 1 guest, please!
No negative nancy's. Make sure your friend knows she’s there to cheer you on!
You may bring your partner if he/she also knows they are there to support you and enjoy the view :)
That being said, if you and a friend want to have back-to-back sessions on the same day, this is totally an option! To do so, one of you needs to book the spot and contact me to make sure my schedule and my makeup artist’s schedule can allot for a double session. If we can make it happen, I will send an invoice to your friend so she can cover her session fee!
Can I bring my partner to the image reveal appointment?
Same-ish rules for this one, as well.
You MUST let me know at least 24 hours in advance
No negative nancy's
He/she MUST be informed of product pricing in advance
I'm so awkward, are you sure I can look sexy?
Hell yes! I cannot tell you how often I hear this! We are all a little awkward. Embrace it! I seriously just boss you around the entire time so you don't really have any opportunities to look awkward and if you do, it usually just results in a laughing fit and sometimes those are our favorite images! Trust me, I’ve photographed hundreds of women (and lots of men!) so I know how to bring the sexy out of E V E R Y self-proclaimed awkward babe!
What if I'm on a budget?
You're in luck! I offer payment plans a few different ways, including a new pre-payment plan! I also have a special incentive for those who choose to pre-pay: $100 OFF their total! Shoot me an email and I can send you more information on our new, improved process! I have a ton of ladies take advantage of my studio layaway plan. They will generally set their payments between $250-$350/month so they can pay off their order over a few months!
So exciting! Can I book for next weekend?!
Sorry, babe! I don’t shoot on weekends, I got kids, yo! This is not something you can wait until the last minute to do. Gotta plan! Week day sessions are generally booked a few months in advance, with a few spots left open for April, May, and June. Don't wait!
I’d like to do a session for [insert occasion here]. When should I schedule my session?
I recommend booking at least a couple months in advance of whatever occasion your excuse is for doing your session! After your shoot, your image reveal and ordering session is about 1-2 weeks out. Then, your order arrives back at the studio 2-4 weeks after that, ready for pickup. So make sure you give yourself a little wiggle room!
What happens if something comes up and I need to reschedule?
Life happens, I get it! As long as you cancel or reschedule at least 14 days prior to your scheduled session, you will not be charged our cancellation/rescheduling fee. We book up months in advance so it’s important to let me know asap if your plans have changed. Not showing up to your session without contacting me is not only not cool, but is also considered a cancellation, so that will result in being charged our cancellation fee. Session fees are nonrefundable.
So, I pay for my session fee and then I pay for the photos separately?
Yes! I have a ton of different options for products including albums, folio boxes, glass boxes, wall art, and digitals, as well as some other items in my collections. My price range varies from $750-$3500 so please make sure you review the pricing guide, which can be accessed through my guide on payment options below! You must go over pricing before you book your session and if you have any questions on pricing or payments, I’m here to answer!
