meet shannon

If you are anything like me, you are probably nervous and a little unsure about boudoir photography. I'm sure you have some questions about how it all works and whether or not it is something for you.

I want to reassure you, no matter where you are in your life, this is for you. As women, we are SO hard on ourselves, and we all struggle with self-image sometimes, but this experience is about overcoming those challenges and learning to see the beauty that everyone else sees in you every day.

Photos make a wonderful gift for a significant other, but this is for you. I want you to feel gorgeous and empowered, no matter what season of life you are in right now.

I'm Shannon, and I am the boudoir photographer that is behind the scenes here at the studio. I love every second of what I do, and I wouldn't trade this job for anything!

My studio is my happy place, it's a pretty, peaceful place that we keep as a women only space during our boudoir sessions. I want it to be a safe place where you can feel welcome and comfortable. 

Check out my video below to learn more about why I started shooting boudoir photography, and then read through the details about how the whole process works.

Plan to book your session a few months in advance so we can get you into the schedule and have your products delivered when you need them!

schedule a call

When you contact me for more information about a boudoir session, we'll schedule a time for a quick, 15-minute phone call so I can hear more about why you want to do a session, your vision for your session, and answer any questions you may have about working with us!

If you decide you'd like to schedule a session we can choose a date, and then get a contract and invoice sent over to you. A reservation fee of $350 is due with your contract signing. The reservation fee covers your time in the studio and professional hair and makeup application. Products are purchased separately.

pre-session consultation

Once you've booked your session you always have the opportunity to visit the studio before your session so we can meet and discuss your session and review products in person. If you don't want to visit ahead of time, that is okay too! 

hair and makeup

Before your session, you'll arrive to the studio where you'll meet our artist. She will work with you to decide which looks will be best for your session and style and then she'll work her magic!

We highly recommend taking advantage of the lashes with your makeup application. Those long, luxurious lashes make for some stunning detail images during your session!

your session

Your session will last anywhere from 30-60 minutes. We'll never set a timer and rush you out the door. We want you to feel comfortable and ENJOY your time at the studio and not feel like you are just another client in a list of appointments we have.

We only schedule four sessions per month to ensure that each person has the best experience with us and will never feel rushed.

We recommend sticking to 2-3 outfits for your session so we can focus on making you feel and look confident. Be sure to choose outfits that you FEEL confident in. Avoid anything that you feel like you have to fuss with. 

image reveal

The best part of the whole experience? You get to see your images the same day as your session! Following your session, we will take 30-35 minutes to review your images, take care of basic editing such as exposure and color correction, and then we'll review everything together.

During your image reveal we will help you narrow down your favorite images and work with you to decide how you'd like to print or display them.

Most women will view 60-90 images and narrow down favorites to 40-50. Because there are usually so many favorites, most of our clients choose to display them in a legacy album where they get to keep most of them and show them off in the most luxurious way.

Other product options include wall art, folio boxes, prints, and digital images. The average investment is 800-1500. Payment plans are available.

delivery of product

Depending on what you ordered during your image reveal, products will arrive 6-8 weeks after your session, particularly our albums and folio boxes that are produced in Europe. We do offer products that are produced locally and can arrive in 1-2 weeks, just be sure to let us know that during your appointment so we can show you what those options are.

When your products have arrived, we will unpackage them to ensure they are absolutely perfect and ready to be delivered to you. We will contact you and let you know that your order is ready to be picked up and we'll schedule a time for you to stop by the studio.

If you are under specific time constraints, it is important you let us know at the time of ordering, otherwise we cannot promise to have products delivered sooner than 6-8 weeks.
