FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you do payment plans?
Yes! For those clients who are unable to pay for all their photos during the ordering session after their photo shoot, they can opt to be put on a payment plan. You can do up to 6 regular monthly payment plans. Payments must be made of at least $200 every month, and 5% interest will be added per month on the remaining invoice if 3 months have lapsed without a payment. You will get your products in their entirety when payment is completed in full.
Does the retainer/session fee include any photos or media images?
Retainer session fee of $500 does NOT include any photos. It is what you pay for my time and talent (up to 2 hours photo shoot), professional hair and makeup (I use that retainer fee to book your session and hire the hair and makeup artist), and the full use of my private studio or outdoor location. You purchase the photos afterwards at your ordering session one to two weeks after your photo shoot.
Why do you cost so much?
Consultation: 2-3 hours
Client-photographer face-to-face time: 2-3 hours
Ordering session: 1-2 hours
Editing time: 10 hours
Processing and ordering products: 3 hours
= TOTAL service per client: 18-22 hours
(Profit) – (service hours)/(cost of goods): I make approximately $15 per hour
This is a boutique photography business, as you can see. I am a custom photographer. I am an artist. You are the art form. You are worth every second I spend on you, and so am I.
How far in advance do I need to book with you?
I am currently booked about 1-5 months in advance. Please plan accordingly! It is not uncommon for people to book me up to 6 months in advance. I only take 5 sessions per month.
I book boudoir photo shoots on weekday evenings after work hours, or on the weekday during the day when it is planned at least 2-3 weeks in advance. Please fill in your best availability on the booking form!
How much does the average client spend?
From start to finish, the average person spends approximately $2000-$2500. The ultimate package costs approximately $5000. Additional a la carte prints and canvases can be purchased after the minimum package is chosen. The retainer session fee, which is $500, does NOT include products or pictures. It covers professional hair and makeup, approximately 3 hours of face to face time (1.5 to 2 of those hours is the photo shoot itself), and my time and talent, and the use of my decked out studio.
Why can’t I just order one or two prints?
Given the approximate 20+ hours I spend per client, it is no longer conducive for me to sell individual prints. Basic packages start at $1500 for 10 images in the form of metal prints, which includes low-resolution watermarked digital images made for media-sharing purposes. Individual images can be purchased at an a la carte style after the first package of 10 images. Thank you for understanding!
Can I buy high resolution digital images?
Yes, of course! High resolution images can be purchased separately, for an additional $900 per image. Keep in mind that all products include low-resolution watermarked images emailed to you for media-sharing purposes. These files do not come with printing rights. High resolution images are purchased for the purpose of printing into large wall art.
NOTE: High resolution files are the “original” pieces of art, therefore cost of purchase for an original size of each image will reflect this impact. When buying a high resolution file, you are buying the original artwork from the photographer. Choose wisely! 🙂
What should I bring to my session?
You should bring your own pretty panties, maybe a bra or two to match, high heel shoes (go HIGH or go home!), thigh high stockings or full length stockings, men’s shirts, ties, hats, babydolls, nightgowns, oversized white t-shirts, etc. Accessories can include long pearl necklaces, bracelets, earrings.
We have some wardrobe to accommodate, including sheer sheets and satin sheets. We have two high heel shoes in sizes 6.5 and 7.5/8. If you do not bring anything at all, we can even accommodate that! We’ll work what what you bring!
Can I buy unedited images for a lower cost?
Sorry, I do not offer unedited images for purchase. All unedited images go into my permanent hard drive and will be kept there for approximately 3 years before they get permanently deleted.
I have no idea how to pose. Will you help me?
Yes, I will pose you in your most flattering ways. If you have examples of the types of images/poses you want, we can definitely recreate them. Your job is to relax and have fun. My job is to make you feel and look good while doing it!
I have taken workshops and classes on how to pose. Every pose is carefully constructed to match your body type, and bring out your best features. Don’t worry! Have fun and let the sexiness flow through you.
I don’t like the way I look. How can you edit me?
Most of my editing come from my poses, so that I get your unique angles beautifully. Every woman’s or couple’s shapes are different, and my posing though generalized, are specialized to properly highlight your best parts. During the editing process, I smooth out all the edges and folds (that everyone has), but I do not generally add or take away pounds. During the ordering session, when I present the finished photos to you, you will have your final request in any extra editing that needs to be done.
Sometimes women will ask for some more nips and tucks, and I can accommodate!
What happens if I miss payments?
We expect that you make regular monthly payments, and at your ordering session, you will be requested to sign a legally binding document agreeing that all products sold and bought are final, and that you agree to pay in full, with no exceptions.
In the event that you go more than 2 months without a payment, your total remaining balance will increase with a 10% interest added. Every month following that, an additional 10% interest will be added. If after 6 months there are still no payments, the Oh Yes! team will give you the option to resume payment, or a small claims file will be made against you to collect the remaining balance.
Having said that, we understand emergency finances happen, and we are more than willing to discuss any changes without actually voiding or decreasing your total due.
