my work is...
...happy, quirky, off-beat, easy-going, whimsical, fun and sexy. I can't help but to jump up and down and squeal whenever I take a dope photo. I constantly try to think outside the box, come up with new and exciting ways to keep this shindig fun for all involved. I thrive off of empowering women, making each one of you feel like a million billion bucks. I love being artsy, and have made angel wings, filled a tub full of florals, and hand-painted the dopest backdrop for shower photos to use to make the most unique, colorful and show-stopping portraits 'ver.
things to know
So, do I have to get fully naked to do a body confidence session?Yes. Just kidding, no.
You wear whatever makes you feel confident and sexy. If that is cotton pajamas, awesome. If that is absolutely nada, awesome.
I will however, gently guide towards the edge of your comfort zone, and maybe make you take a few steps outside of it, because you just never quite know how good it can feel to be daring!
How far in advance should I book a session?My calendar is currently almost full for 2021, and I 've begun booking into 2022 - most of my clients book six to nine months out! This gives you time to 'get excited' for your session, as well as use my prepayment options to snag a collection, pay in installments and add some cool bonuses to your experience!
Can I send you my Pinterest page with ideas and poses and suggestions?Ahhh, Pinterest. The site that makes me feel like a DIY, home-decoration failure on the daily. I really need to invest in a good glue-gun, y'all. While Pinterest is surely amazeballs to help you kind of hone in on what type and style boudoir you are envisioning, sending me a long list of images you want to recreate is really counter productive to how our time together would otherwise unfold naturally. Trust, I will take the very best photos of you. Pinky-swear. Take a peek at my galleries to get an idea of my style.
When and how do I see my photos?OMG, this is my favorite part! You get to see your fully edited images for the first time at my studio during your private reveal session...TWO HOURS AFTER YOUR SESSION! You'll enjoy a custom made slideshow so you can you gush over each and every image - and then we get to put together your very own custom order: albums, canvases, folio boxes and more, I have beautiful samples of everything we offer for you to look at, touch and imagine your own beautiful self in!
How does the hair + makeup part work?I have a group of really talented ladies who come to the studio to zjush you up for your portrait session - they can give you a a look that'll make you feel like a total queen, from moody glam, to era-authentic 60s mod glam!
Okay, so I am totally in love with you, how do I book you for a Body Confidence session?Sweet! Follow this link and pick a date that works for you! Then get super stoked because it's going to be awesome, dude!
Do you travel for boudoir sessions?Is the atomic weight of Cobalt 58.9? If you aren't Egon Spengler...that would be an 'absolutely yes'! I love to travel, and exploring this little planet of ours as a photographer is one of the most rewarding things about my job. I'll be taking this party on tour really soon, and in the meantime, yes, I'll come to you, if you live a plane-ride away. :)
What about digital files?My biggest goal is to make sure you leave your session with gorgeous, long-lasting, high quality, TANGIBLE goodies. I'm talking albums, canvases and folio boxes with your favorite prints in them. So you can look back on our time together in the future and think to yourself "damn, I look good!".
Digital files tend to live in dark recesses of hard drives and USBs, only to be forgotten and never looked at again. So yes, you can definitely add on a set of digital files to your order, but don't forget about prints and albums!
This is also why I do in-person reveal sessions - your edited images won't ever be thrown into a cold, lonely online gallery.
Do you only photograph women?I photography mainly women, as well as gender non-binary people. I never say 'never' in absolutes, so if you don't fall into any of these categories, shoot me an email to chat and maybe we'll go from there!
Can we see the RAWs, and all the unedited images of ourselves?Asking a photographer to hand over their RAW, unedited work, is like asking your cake baker to bring you their batter and a bowl of fondant, and call it a day. Me shooting your boudoir session is only half of what you are hiring me for! The other half is where I remove misfires, doubles, and anything unflattering, I edit and deliver a wonderful gallery of all the wonderful photos I took of your wonderful self. :)
I promise, nothing worth seeing by you will be excluded. Everything else doesn't get ferried over to the mainland, and spends their days on the island of misfit images.
Do you offer payment plans?We can use Paypal Credit, putting your ordered goods in your hands right away (no need to wait on your end! yay!), and giving you up to 6 months of interest-free time to pay your balance.
Will you photography fully nude portraits?If you want to, absolutely.
I hear so much about 'photo credit', what is it and why does it matter?So photo credit, is when you post your photos on social media and, well, give us credit for taking that photo. A link back to our own social media in the caption will put a serious smile on my face and is very much appreciated. It is like the new millennium's version of word of mouth, and I love it long time.
Do you offer themed sessions?You can add on fifteen minutes to your session for 'shower photos' and/or fifteen minutes to wear my custom-made Angel Wings. :)
We might do themed sessions in the future; the best way to know when those happen is to be a part of our private Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LauraDee
How far in advance do you usually book a boudoir session?Clients typically book about 45 to 60 days out, depending on studio availability.
