01. Will my photos be kept private?

If your preference is to maintain complete privacy, rest assured that your photos will not be published on my website or social media platforms. Your confidentiality is of utmost importance.

I prioritize your privacy and will only share your photos with your explicit written consent, as outlined in the model release contract. I adhere to a strict policy of not tagging you or disclosing your name and contact information.
Many of my clients generously grant permission to feature their images in my portfolio, and I consider it a great honor when they express such satisfaction with their photos. Following the release of your photos to you, we will have a detailed discussion about your privacy preferences. You will have the opportunity to approve which photos can be shared and specify those that should remain private.

Again, if you don't sign a contract, nothing will be published.

02. Am I allowed to bring someone with me to a boudoir photoshoot?

Certainly, you are welcome to bring a companion to the photoshoot. For those who have opted for the "Sassy Secrets" package, a female assistant and makeup artist (MUA) will already be present on the set. Rest assured, we take every measure to ensure your comfort throughout the entire shoot.

03. As a photographer, with whom do you collaborate?

I exclusively collaborate with female models, embracing diversity in terms of age, race, and size. The model herself decides the nature of the shoot, whether it involves lingerie, covered nudity, or complete nudity, or a combination thereof.
You have the option to apply your own makeup prior to the shoot, or you can choose to work with certified Makeup Artists (MUA). The 'Sassy Secrets' package includes the services of a Makeup Artist as well.

04. I am not experienced in posing or photoshoots as I am not a professional model. Can you provide assistance?

A crucial aspect of my role as a photographer is ensuring your comfort throughout the photoshoot. The sessions take place in a private and trusted environment to provide you with a sense of ease. I offer assistance with posing, guiding you on body and facial expressions to capture the most flattering and natural shots.

Additionally, I always bring "The Boudoir Posing Cards" to the shoot, featuring clear examples of beautiful poses and instructions on how to achieve them. These cards serve as a helpful guide for inspiration, enhancing your confidence and comfort during the entire session.

05. Where is the location of the photoshoot?

I conduct my boudoir photoshoots at upscale hotels within Belgium, or alternatively, at a location of your choice if you engage my services for photoshoots abroad. Before the session, we establish mutual agreements regarding the preferred style and location to ensure that your expectations are met.

06. How much does a boudoir photoshoot cost?

Explore various choices for a boudoir photoshoot by visiting the pricing and packages page.

I aim to provide you with the optimal option, but if you desire a customized proposal, please reach out to discuss your specific requirements, such as location, timing, makeup artist (MUA), and preferences for prints or a photo book. It's important to note that while some photographers may charge lower fees, these typically exclude products, prints, MUA services, location, or digital files.

I prefer offering transparent, all-inclusive packages to ensure my clients receive the best possible experience. Did you know you can also purchase gift vouchers for photoshoots on my webshop? Perhaps an ideal birthday present?

07. What is the process for booking and payment?

All payments are processed through my webshop, and the booking is considered confirmed upon receipt of the full payment. Payment options on the webshop include Paypal, VISA, MASTERCARD, Bancontact, or any other electronic payment method, ensuring a 100% secure transaction. Following the payment, I will reach out to you via phone or email to finalize the details, including the agreed-upon date and location. Should you have any inquiries, please don't hesitate to ask using the provided form.

08. When is the earliest I can make a reservation for a boudoir photoshoot?

Kindly email me your preferred dates of availability, and we can schedule an appointment accordingly. It is advisable to book well in advance to secure a desirable location. If you already have a location in mind, we can arrange the appointment sooner.

09. What is the turnaround time for receiving my boudoir photos?

The preliminary selection of photos will be sent to you within 2-3 days after the photoshoot through a secure and personalized link. Subsequently, you can choose your preferred photos. The standard processing time for retouching your selected photos is typically around 3 weeks, though additional photos may extend this timeframe.

10. In what format do you provide the retouched boudoir photos?

The model will choose images that will undergo retouching in Photoshop, and the finalized versions will be provided in high-resolution JPG format suitable for print (300dpi) with a 2:3 aspect ratio. The photos will be securely delivered through a personalized link.

Additionally, I strongly suggest considering a professional photo book for printing your beautiful photos; we can collaboratively decide on the selection. Moreover, high-quality canvas prints of your preferred photo can also be arranged. Check the pricing page for more information.

11. How many outfits are recommended for me to bring?

The number of lingerie sets you can bring depends on the package you've purchased, ranging from 2 to 5 hours of shooting time. Generally, you have the flexibility to change into 3 to 5 different lingerie sets during the session, with an opportunity to switch outfits approximately every 30 minutes. A helpful tip is to ensure that the labels on your lingerie are already removed, as photos tend to look more polished when labels are not visible.

12. Do you perform retouching on the photos?

Certainly, my workflow involves an initial preselection of photos, which I then send to you through a secure link. After you've chosen your favorite shots, I proceed to edit and retouch those selected photos. In terms of retouching, this encompasses refining skin texture by removing any unwanted blemishes, scars, bruises, cellulite, or stretch marks.

It's essential to communicate your preference regarding retouching before the photoshoot. If you prefer your photos not to be retouched, please inform me in advance.

It's important to note that, as a boudoir photographer and retoucher, my goal is not to transform you unrecognizably. Instead, the intention is to highlight both your inner and outer beauty in a way that feels and looks natural.

13. If I'm feeling overwhelmed, what can I do to calm my nerves?

I understand that various insecurities may surface, and it's entirely natural to feel both nervous and excited. My top advice is to take a few deep breaths, refrain from scrutinizing yourself in the mirror, and trust in me and my team to bring out the best in you. We'll create a comfortable atmosphere with your favorite music playing, and you can enjoy a sip of champagne. The experience will be akin to spending time with your girlfriends, and I assure you, you'll have a great time!

14. I have cellulite, stretch marks, and acne. Is it possible for you to edit or minimize these imperfections in the photos?

The retouching process includes the removal of acne, acne scarring, stretch marks, and cellulite. Upon request, I can also perform minor adjustments to smooth out the visual line in your silhouette. However, I won't make drastic changes to your body shape or face because I aim for your images to reflect the best version of yourself. If there's a specific area you feel self-conscious about, we can utilize poses and lighting techniques to emphasize your favorite features instead.

15. If I'm older than the women or not as slender as those featured on your website, can I still schedule a session?

Absolutely! Everyone is welcome in front of my camera! It's disheartening that people feel the need to ask this question! Since I started photographing in 1990, I've captured a diverse array of shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and age groups. However, not everyone is comfortable with their photos being shared online, limiting the full showcase of my work.

Rest assured, my commitment is to create images that flatter you and authentically reflect your personality. I firmly believe in the beauty of every woman, and it's my responsibility to illustrate just how stunning you are. To get a glimpse of the diversity in my work, take a look at my portfolio featuring a range of women in some of my favorite shareable images.

16. Can I use the images for Facebook, Instagram, Patreon or OnlyFans?

Certainly! If you'd like to use the images for your social media or payment platforms, we can discuss and arrange for the appropriate licensing or permissions to ensure everything aligns with your preferences and platform requirements.

17. Do you offer Time for Print (TFP) photoshoots?

Honestly, I rarely agree to TFP or collaborative work nowadays unless it involves a truly exceptional opportunity. For instance, I may consider it if you're offering the chance guaranteeing publication, or providing access to a location that would be otherwise impossible to shoot in. If you believe you have something that falls into the "EPIC" category, please feel free to reach out and discuss. ;-)
