We have around 200-250 pieces. Typically clients try on 15-20 outfits, but you are more than welcome to try on more!


After you try everything on we look over your "contenders" and your overall vision. Then, we choose three outfits!

Hair & Makeup

Most of our clients have never had their Hair & Makeup done. Maybe for prom or for their wedding, but never just for them.


Our HMUA, Chelsea, is a licensed Cosmetologist that focuses in TV and Theater Makeup! She is also certified in Skin Care, so if you are worried about allergies or sensitive skin, she is PERFECT! Oh, and she also is certified in nails, and can do more Fantasy Makeup as well!


Chelsea will reach out to you before your session to go over everything. Because, you know, we all have questions! 


We supply everything, so you do not have to worry about bringing foundation! But if you have questions, Chelsea will gladly go over everything with you!

So, what's next?

After your hair and make up,  we take some bomb ass photos, and just hang out. We have a ton of different locations in our Two Studios to play around in.


In our Greenhouse Studio we have the Bed, Couch, Tub, Egg Chair, Brick Stair Case, Tub, and Windows!


In the Gothic Studio we have a wall of Mirrors, A birdcage, Victorian Floor Mirrors, Darkened Brick, and a ton of candles. We also have the Warehouse and Elevator Shaft!


So, basically whatever vision you have, we can bring it to life. During this time, which is around 2 hours, we help pose you, help guide you, and literally hype you up. Everyone is nervous about this part, and we get it. That is why we are here for you. AND, we also show you photos on the back of the camera.


Because, damn, look at you.

Ordering Session

After we are done playing around in lingerie, we have you go grab something to eat.


During this time I edit the images for you. So guess what? You can literally walk out looking like a bad ass, Feeling like a bad ass, and having photos of you as a bad ass.


We usually tell clients to come back between 30-45 minutes. When they come back we look over the images, narrow some down, and then decide on if you want to buy a package, a wall print, album, or digital images!


We also go over and accept Payment Plans, Financing Options, Debit, and Credit Cards! So yes, everything is done in the same day. You are the only client that day as well! The Client will then have their customized Digitals, Albums, Keepsake Boxes, or other Products delivered to them within 3-4 weeks of their session!

Due to the Nature of the Session & Personalized Products, all Sales are Final at the Ordering Session

"PSA this is going to be lengthy:

Going in to this shoot I was really hesitant... I've been body conscious for years and go through extreme ups and downs of both liking and caring for my body. For the longest time I was in a low spot, again, and was hesitant about doing something like this for myself and also as a surprise for my partner as well. Sarah McDaniel is an amazing photographer who makes you feel great about yourself the entire time. Throughout the session Sarah would show me a photo here and there and I was set at ease because I know I'm an awkward person so I was worried about how the photos would turn out. 😅

Sarah does her best to make her clients feel 100% comfortable and at ease during the shoots. Sarah showed me that I could really take power in my body and have some confidence again... with a lot of laughs along the way 😄 I can honestly say I haven't loved myself this way ever, nor have I liked my body this much in a really long time. I can look in a mirror again and just really feel happy with myself, boudoir or not, it just gave me an air of change and I've been on a high of loving myself since.

From the hair and makeup by Danielle, I never thought I could love my self reflection so much... Danielle had me aweh struck because I never thought I could look the way she got me to look, it was amazing. Sarah also has a studio space with over at least 9 different settings via couch, bed, bathtub, ect to shoot on or with... each one with it's own kind of sensual appeal... so when it comes to variety of photos, there is nothing short of variety. The client's closet is phenomenal as well, there are so many options to choose from! I would highly recommend her to my friends and anyone interested in making future bookings."
