~ BOUDOIR SESSION ~
My boudoir session rates are $150 for up to a 1 hour shoot. These are done in my home studio or at a location of your choice (within the Grand Rapids area). Your home, a hotel, even outside if you dare! Please contact me to view a private password protected Boudoir gallery to see my work.

WHAT YOU GET
Along with your session fees, you get to pick out 5 complimentary digital images ON ME! Also for every $75 you order in prints I give you 5 extra digital images on cd as a thank you! If you order $250 or more in prints, you will receive the whole collection on cd! The pictures you choose are high resolutions digital images that will be put on CD and mailed to you with a shared print release. 2-3 weeks after our session I will email you a password protected online proofing gallery for you to pick your 5 images. If you opt for DIGITAL ONLY, you can purchase a CD of the whole collection of images in your gallery for a discounted rate of $200 (or additional individual images for $15 each).
*ALL EDITS ARE FINAL
Any images you receive on cd you have full printing rights too for as long as you want. I do offer printing through my professional lab, and would love to do the printing for you. My lab is wonderful and they offer some really outstanding products!! It is very important to me to make your online images tangible. To put your memories in an album or on your wall.
LITTLE BLACK BOOK
I offer these beautiful discrete little black books for $135. They are 20 page 8x6 flush mount board books and are AWESOME! If you order the book with your session you will get all 20 image on cd as well as a thank you! Great deal!! Please allow 2-3 weeks for the little black books to be available for pick up.
SCHEDULING AND POLICIES
I shoot Monday-Fridays. I do offer a very select number of Saturday mornings (when I do not have a wedding booked) with an additional fee of $25. When trying to decide on a date, I ask you to pick a week in the month you want to schedule and I can send my availability from there. I ask that you to schedule at least 2 weeks in advance as I am typically booked solid. That being said, if we need to squeeze one in I will do my best to accommodate you! Keep in mind that it takes me 2-3 weeks to edit a session then 2-3 weeks for your little black book to come in. These sessions typically result in a gift for you love so please book accordingly.
If you need to reschedule, please give 48 hours notice. If given less than 2 days notice (for any reason) there will be a $25 rescheduling fee.
*No call, no show. If you fail to show up for our scheduled session for any reason, you will have to pay for the session missed and your new session at the time you reschedule.
WHAT TO EXPECT
I like to keep my sessions very real and comfortable. No need to be nervous or tense!! I promise to make you look GORGEOUS!! Most gals arrive very nervous but quickly come out of their shell and genuinely enjoy themselves. It is very important for me to make people feel good about themselves, this has been a part of me before I even became a photographer. I promise that after 10 mins you won't realize you are half naked:) Most sessions are typically done at my home studio. I have 3 different areas I like to use when doing these special sessions. I have a spare room we use as our "boudoir" another rooms with amazing natural light that I typically do some corner work in with long curtains, and then of course the studio for the white back drop.
WHAT TO WEAR
I recommend you bring 2-4 "outfits". Some gals like to go topless for a few too. Heels, jewelry, props that may mean something to your significant other etc are encouraged. I love big hair and heavy make up. Especially around the eyes! Just make sure you arrive feeling your most beautiful and looking super sexy. I do have hair and make up gals that can come do you up! If you are interested, let me know and I will get you their contact info.
I hope this info helps you feel more at ease with booking your session, and I look forward to working with you!!
