FAQ

who is these photo session for?

A. These photo sessions are for all women who would like to celebrate their body and personality, and create unique artwork capturing their femininity and sensuality.

Where are you based and do you travel?

A. I'm based in Truro, Nova Scotia and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph you outside of the hub, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come because I love the way my creativity is developed when I discover new places and that I don't want it to be a brake for you. Contact me with your destination and I will provide you with a quote.

Where does the photo session take place? Do you have a studio?

A. Most of our photo sessions take place in our commercial photography studio located at 30 Duke Street inside the Truro Professional Centre in the heart of Downtown Truro.

30 Duke St Suite 12 Truro, NS B2N 2A1

I see that you offer both glamour *and* boudoir photography. What is the difference?

A. A. Boudoir portrait photography is our primary specialization at Truro Boudoir Studio. This involves a certain level of undress (either lingerie, lounge-wear, other intimate apparel, or nothing at all. These images tend to be a little more raw, real, candid, unposed LOOKING (although we do pose you throughout the whole shoot). These are meant to embrace a woman's sexuality, independence, femininity, and badassness. Because of the posing and wardrobe, these images tend to be more intimate in nature. We do retouch all boudoir images for our clients with standard retouching. The finished product is typically a variety of about 30-40 images with a natural retouch (no special effects other than black and white on some images) that include "detail" shots such as legs, tush, breasts, back and shoulders, lips, as well as full body scapes and imagery that includes the face.

B. Beauty portraiture is a bit more polished...with a finished "fine art" look and feel. Beauty portraiture is a great option for a woman who wants a smaller collection of absolutely breathtaking portraits of herself that are wall-worthy. This is a great option for women who may be a bit intimidated by the idea of baring all for a boudoir session. Wardrobe for a beauty session can be a ball gown, little black dress, a lace bodysuit, fabric draping, or even nudity. Our beauty portraits always contain the full face and at least the shoulders up. There are more special effects such as fine art textures and extensive retouching done on these images, and the final outcome is roughly 15-20 fully enhanced wall-ready images.

Please describe the whole process, what should I expect?

A. When you arrive in the studio, you will be welcomed by our fantastic all female team, which will go over your ideas for the photo-shoot with you and your preference for make-up and hair styling. Complimentary champagne/mocktails and snacks are always available in the studio! Professional make-up and hair styling will take about 60 minutes and once you are beautified and look your best, we will begin the photo session. During the session we photograph the number of looks (or outfit changes) included in your package of choice. After the photo shoot we will schedule a viewing session where we will show you your very best, fully edited photographs from the photo session. From those photographs you will be able to pick the ones you like most and will be able to decide in which form you would like to receive them – on a mobile app, in a Little Black Book and/or as an Art Print/s. The digital copies of the images you select will be available right away on your mobile app following the Session. All additional products will take 3-6 weeks to arrive once we place the order with our printing lab.

What should I wear?

A. This is probably the most popular question I get….and the answer is simple…whatever you feel beautiful in. My signature style is the "effortless cool girl" look, which, lucky for you, involves things you likely already have in your closet. A bodysuit, an over-sized sweater, cropped sweatshirt and high waist panties, a robe, or even a sleep shirt. Some clients opt for lingerie. And many clients choose to do a nude set during their session. during a full photo-shoot, you will typically have time for up to 3 “looks” or outfits (yes, "nude" counts as an outfit) ! Don't stress to much about wardrobe. I could (and have!) spent an entire hour shooting a client with no other wardrobe than the bed sheets and completely rock it out. Once you've completed the booking process with me, you will also receive a detailed shoot guide that will help you with preparations and wardrobe considerations.

Can I bring a friend?

A. Sometimes your best friend is exactly what you need to calm your nerves and give you the reassurance you need to get started with your session! I don’t mind at all if there is one friend with you! I DO ask that the friend not interfere with the shoot (running in to “touch you up” in between every shot, directing your posing, etc) as I will handle anything along those lines that needs done. I do not allow any more than 1 friend in the room with you. Also, it is a requirement of mine that boyfriends/husbands/spouses NOT be in the room while we are shooting. That’s a firm policy. Want to do one better than having a friend there for moral support? Why don't you book your shoots back to back so you can both enjoy the experience together?! Availability, pending, of course.

How far in advance should I book?

A. I recommend that women have their shoot date scheduled for about 2 months prior to needing the finished product in-hand. Also, being a one-woman show, I tend to book up very quickly and relatively far in advance. For weekday availability, you should email me to schedule at least a month and a half in advance. Your photo reveal appointment will be approximately 2-3 weeks after your photo session, and your finished product (depending on what you order) will arrive between 3 and 6 weeks after that.

Are all the women on your website models?

A. No! Almost all of our clients are regular people who have absolutely no experience in modelling and have never been photographed professionally. Some of our clients come in as timid and shy women and leave as energized and confident women who got a chance to express their inner sensuality in a new and exciting way.

Will my photos be shared on your website? social accounts? Blog?

A. I, of course, would LOVE to use images from our session together to show other women your amazing photos! HOWEVER, I also completely understand if you might be uncomfortable to share them. That said, I will not share unless you grant permission. The bottom line is: I will honor whatever level of privacy you would like. Many clients are so proud of their images that they give me full discretion to choose images for my portfolio, some clients prefer that only their faceless images be put in my gallery, some clients prefer to choose the images that are posted, and other clients are comfortable with anything being posted, as long as it’s after a certain date (after they gift the images). Just let me know where you stand on the topic and I will honor your wishes!
