How much does it cost & what is included?
Your session fee covers the entire experience from the pre-planning, day of hair & makeup & the photo shoot itself as well as styling advice & everything in between! Images & products are purchased separately & you only buy what you love. Pricing on products & collections I offer is discussed prior to your photo shoot!
How many photos are included & can I purchase more than what’s included?
During your reveal & ordering session, we will view anywhere between 50-70 images! Depending on the collection you choose, you will select your favorite images to purchase. Upgrading your collection or purchasing additional digital images is always an available option! Most clients have a hard time choosing & end up upgrading their collection or purchase additional digital images!
Do you offer payment plans for session fees & products?
Yes! When you are ready to book, your session fee can be split up into 2 payments of $250. Your initial payment acts as a non-refundable retainer to secure your date at The Babe Cave as well as our hair & makeup stylist(s). Pre-payment plan options are also available for purchasing collections & products. For more information on different payment plan options, please click here to fill out my contact form so that I can contact you directly & go over all the details!
I have never done a shoot like this & don’t know how to pose; Will you direct me?
ABSOLUTELY! That is what I am here for. I will direct you to pose in positions you are MOST COMFORTABLE posing in. I also recommend my clients to check out Pinterest for some posing inspiration prior to their sessions & have even created a board myself specifically for you to visit to get that inspiration flowing! If you come across a ‘WOW’ pose that you absolutely MUST HAVE, send it my way so that I can make sure that that pose is included during your shoot! You can even get in front of a mirror & practice those poses beforehand to find those 'HOLY SHIT' angles! Check out my Boudoir Posing inspiration board by clicking HERE!
I have no idea what to wear! HELP!?
I GOT YOU!! I have a client closet that includes different styles, in varying sizes, of lingerie & accessories that you can choose from! In addition to the boudoir posing Pinterest board, I have also created one to help get some inspiration outfits, hair, makeup, jewelry, THE WORKS! I also have a preferred list of lingerie designers with varying price ranges that will fit your budget no matter what it is & will send that via email upon request!

I have ‘problem’ areas that I am self-conscious about; How much editing & Photoshop do you do?
While blemish removal & skin retouching are a part of my editing process, my editing & Photoshop could be considered minimal in comparison to most boudoir photographers. My goal is NOT to change how you look but to enhance the natural beauty that is your own! As you will see in my portfolio, skin is not completely smoothed out to where it looks ‘doll like’ or ‘unrealistic’. We all have pores, scars, birthmarks & beauty marks; those are things that make us individually & beautifully UNIQUE & I never want to take away from YOUR UNIQUENESS! When it comes to body reshaping, that is an absolute NO, however, lingerie tends to create indentations in the skin, so those little areas will be taken care of!
Will you be posting my photos on social media or your website?
Only if YOU give me written consent, will I post any of your photos online! Your privacy is my #1 PRIORITY!! Once you are ready to book, I will include a model release form with your contract for you to review & sign. The model release gives me permission to use the images & behind the scenes footage from your shoot for marketing purposes on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, my website, & printing for my physical portfolio or sample products such as albums and wall art that are shown to new clients. Even if you choose to sign the model release, I will always contact you directly with the images I intend on sharing just to make sure you are comfortable with me sharing that specific image(s). Plus, I have some pretty kick-ass incentives if you do decide to sign a model release! Make sure to ask about those incentives during your pre-planning consult!
How long does it take after the photo shoot to receive my images/products & how will I receive them?
Your soft proofed gallery will be revealed to you, in person, the same day as your photo shoot! This is where we will go over everything together & you will choose the images that are included with the collection you purchase! Due to the custom nature of each order, products such as albums, wall art & print boxes, we need to allow up to 21 business days for production & an additional 5 business days for shipping!
I would like to get my hair & makeup done! Is hair & makeup included?
YES! It's not an experience without the whole 10 yards!! I work with some of the best stylists in DFW & prior to your shoot, you will sit with them at the studio & experience ALL OF THE PAMPERING!
I’m nervous! Can I bring a friend with me to the shoot?
1 MILLION PERCENT YES!! Please!! As I said earlier, I want YOU to be comfortable & enjoy every second of your experience & if that means bringing your best friend along for the ride for some additional words of encouragement or if it just makes you feel better knowing you’ve got a familiar face in the room, bring them along! I love meeting new people so please, YES!! Maybe we can all grab a drink afterwards, my treat?!
Do you offer boudoir photo shoots with couples?
I do offer couples boudoir sessions & actually encourage it! I can’t even begin to express the sentiment that a couple’s boudoir session gives you. The everlasting, raw & intimate moments with your partner are something to celebrate & commemorate forever!
Are you LGBTQ+ Friendly?
This is a discrimination free zone! We don’t have time for that shit over here… no matter who you are, how you identify, your race, gender, anything! I want to be apart of your story and the celebration of who YOU are!
Do you travel?
All of my photo shoots are done outside of The Babe Cave, my at home studio just north of Dallas. However, if you find a studio within the DFW, there are no traveling fees! For travel outside of the DFW area, there is a charge of $0.55 per mile round trip. If you are out of state looking to book me, please contact me via email or by phone to discuss traveling arrangements. I am an adventurer at heart and swoon at the opportunity of being able to visit new places!
