Getting Ready for your shoot is easy peasy, just follow these basic guidelines and we'll do the rest!
For those of you who are letting us do the make-up and/or hair:
For those of you who are doing your own make-up and/or hair:
We are the best! Simple as that. And we aren't afraid to toot our own horn *BEEP BEEP*!
We are fun, energetic and REAL. We only specialize in boudoir photography - it's what we live and breathe everyday since 1997! Keep it classy, make it sassy or get down and dirty - the choice is yours and we'll rock it for ya!
You will LOVE our staff of incredible all female photographers. Not only will you have breath taking photos (that you will want to show to EVERYONE) but an experience with us can be empowering and life changing! It's fun!!!! Come play with us :-)
Absolutely not! Your privacy is very important to us and your photos will never be viewed by anyone else unless you want them to.
All of our photos on this site are used with the documented permission of our clients. Your photographs will be held in the strictest of confidence and will NEVER be used inappropriately!
If you would like to be featured as "Kitty of the Day" on our social media pages, or appear on our website - shoot us an email giving us permission girl! We'd love to show you off!!!
Everybody is nervous at first! You will find once you arrive, our environment is very relaxed and positive. By the time we select your lingerie and sets and get to know each other a little, you'll be energized and your nervousness will be transformed into excitement. It's less stressful than you might think and hella fun!
Your session is always under your control - YOU decide what YOU want to do! You can shoot fully clothed, topless or fully nude. It's very difficult to shock any of us, so be honest about what you want to do. #NoJudgement - The level of freaky is your choice & we'll never tell :-)
In Main Studios, we have a variety of women's lingerie in many sizes from 0 - 20. We mostly provide one pieces, teddy's, corsets and babydolls. We do not provide bra and panty sets, thongs or any kind of underwear - you must bring your own undies ladies!
If you have items to bring, we can mix and match your items with our items for the best result. We have lots of shoes and jewelry to help accessorize. It's always fun to bring props, military jackets, guitars, surf boards, cowboy boots, etc. If it's fun, it's in! If it's naughty even better!
In Traveling Kitty Cities, we can bring outfits with us to your shoot when available! Your photographer will reach out to you the day before your session to confirm whether or not you need us to do bring anything from our closet.
Please bring your own nylon thigh highs please :-) We stock them, but they get ripped easily and we'd hate to not have good ones available on your day!
For the germophobes: yes, we clean and sterilize everything that is used at our studio :-)
Damn skippy! We do like to keep the editing as light as possible so that it still looks like you and not some weird plastic mannequin. We take care of the basics like skin smoothing, pimple removal, cellulite removal, smooth out any spider veins or bruises, etc. From there, we ask you what YOU want.
We can get surgical with our photoshopping skill set, however, we much prefer to rely on our bomb ass photographer skills, good lighting, fun posing and proper fitting lingerie!
Tattoo removal - if you have a tat that you wish you never did (been there, done that) and it's relatively small - yes, we can remove it easily and at no cost. Now, if you have a full back piece and want us to remove it, that takes HOURS of editing time and you will be billed at $50 per hour. Or just use a corset.... :-)
You have 30 days to place your order before we delete them from our hard drives permanently.
Why wouldn't we? FCK H8.
Photographic make-up can look very drastic in real life, but you have to remember that only HALF will actually show in the photos because of the lighting. We want the make-up to be fresh and sleek, not caked on, so please let us work our magic!
If you love the look of thick lashes, (and who doesn't really?) We love the fake ones and are experts at putting them on!! They are including in the price of the make-up.
Can't stand the idea of not doing your own? Please bring all the cosmetics you used with you & put it on heavier than usual. You MUST use foundation - powder or bare minerals will not be enough. AND, girls, please match your face to your body - a totally different color head on a body is just weird looking AND we can't fix it in Photoshop!
My beautiful women of color, this is for you: Yeah, we're a mostly white crew, but we know how to do your make-up - and don't worry, we have your foundation color!
Your hair should be styled in a way that would normally do it for an evening out. It is best to look like YOU! If you need some help making the best "You" come out, we provide hair styling services. We can do big fluffy hair, super sleek flat ironed styles, spiral curls, pin-up retro styles - we got mad skills. Arrive with clean dry hair and we'll do the rest!
There are no refunds on session fees even if you cancel your appointment. You may reschedule your appointment once with no penalty if you call us within 48 hours at main studios and 1 week on location. If you contact under this time alottment, you will need to pay for an entirely new session.
The first reschedule is at no fee, however too reschedule after that will cost an additional $40.00 each time you reschedule.
Same day cancellations will forfeit your session fee and you will be required to pay for an entirely new session - Be sure of your dates ladies!
General turn around time to view your photos is 3 days. It will happen online in a private, secure and password protected gallery. You will receive an email when they are ready for viewing and live.
The gallery will remain online for 24 hours. If you are unable to make a decision in the 24 hour period, you can schedule a live proof with our Admin Goddess and review them with her.
If you would like to remain online and not do a live proofing, you can put down a $200 deposit to keep them online for a week. The deposit goes toward the purchase of your photos and any amount unused will be refunded.
You are not expected to tip your photographer, however, if you feel they went over and above, and rocked your session, you can leave a tip for your photographer. Cash to them, or add to your packages purchase at the end - More than anything - we love shout outs on our Facebook & Yelp Pages.

We love friends, they can be fun, but they can be distracting too. Some friends are helpful and positive, others can be overbearing and anxiety inducing! Choose wisely who you bring....
Your FEMALE friend (just 1 max please) can stay with you during the make-up and outfit selection, but once the shoot begins, they will not be allowed to watch the photo shoot.
However, please note that if your friend is distracting, bossy and/or irritating the crap out of your photographer, they will be asked to leave, and we aren't shy about asking.
When we are shooting out of hotels, friends can drop you off, but once the shoot begins, they will asked to leave or wait in the hotel bar or lobby, as the spaces aren't designed for lots of people.
Men are not allowed at the studio.
Our studios are typically buzzing with lots of different women, and I'm sure they don't want to have a man they don't know there :-) The only time we make allowances for men is if he is joining for a maternity shoot.
Do NOT bring children of any age to the studio. It is NOT okay, no exceptions. Adults only, 18 and older.
Active military receive 10% off all our packages, with valid ID. It does not apply to the session fees.
If you are over 21, feel free to bring wine or champagne to the studio to enjoy while you are getting ready. Keep consumption light, otherwise you will look drunk in your photos!
It is not recommended to bring hard liquor, it seems to go down too easy, and then you will be drunk for your session! If we feel you may have had too much, you will be cut off, we will take your keys and make you go home in an Uber :-)
You will be asked to verify your age. You must be at least 18 years of age or older.
Selecting Sets and Outfits
In Main Studios we have a selection of lingerie to choose from. In Kitty Cities you need to bring your own or let us know if you'd like us to bring lingerie for you.
If you have made arrangements with the Main Studio to have lingerie brought out, we will present it to you and have you try everything on. We will also go through what you have brought.
We will choose three main backgrounds and sets for you to shoot on. We will go over all your ideas and offer ours as well and figure out all the nuances of what you are looking to achieve from your shoot. Each shoot is different and fully customized to fit your preferences.
During the Photo Shoot
Your photographer is going to guide you through all the poses by physically demonstrating them to you. It's a work out, so make sure to have a snack before you come in. We will put you in the right positions, shoot from the best angles and help you with the facial expressions. It's normal to feel stupid at first, or just a little awkward. We will focus on all the good and minimize anything you are uncomfortable with. Within a few clicks, you'll be working the camera like a pro.
After the Shoot
Once we have completed the session, your photos go into editing production. It takes about 3 days for your viewing gallery to go live. You will receive an email when ready for viewing and the gallery stays online for 24 hours.
If you are unable to make this appointment, please contact the studio the day before to reschedule. Once the gallery goes live, you have that day only to view at your leisure :-)
Once you have gone through your photos, but your still not sure (and want more time) you can schedule a video conference call via zoom and go through them with us live.
If you would like to view on your own, you can put down a $200 deposit to keep them online for a week. Deposits go toward the purchase of your photos and any remainder wll be refunded.
After you leave
You're gonna wanna do it again and tell everyone you know. Spread the word!
