FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
your guide to The 7 oh 2
If you have a question that isn't addressed below, feel free to contact me for assistance.
"Where will my session take place?"
Your session can take place in your hotel room, your home or a hotel room I provide for the session. The choice is entirely up to you.
I frequently travel to my clients for their sessions so if you're interested in a session with me but can't make it Vegas, that's ok!
I can come to you. Contact me for details.
"If you provide the location for my session, is it included in the session fee?"
My session fees are not affected by the location you choose so whether I come to your hotel room or you come to a location that I provide for your session, it's all the same.
"What is the difference between a boudoir session and an erotic session?"
This is one of my most frequently asked questions and an important one! Please visit my Session Options Page for a detailed explanation of the distinct differences between these two session styles.
"What should I wear and/or bring for my session?"
Once you've scheduled your session, you'll receive a welcome email from me where I'll share the link to my online session prep guide. My guide has some helpful hints and tricks to get you prepared for your session day, including suggestions on wardrobe and lingerie. Ultimately, wearing whatever makes you feel sexy is the best option but I've shot entire sessions with a just a bed sheet so wardrobe is not something I like my clients stressing over. If after you receive my guide you have some questions, just reply to my email and I'd be happy to help.
"Can we meet for coffee first? Do you offer to meet potential clients in person prior to scheduling?"
The simple answer is no. I stopped offering in-person consultations years ago for a variety of reasons. First and most importantly, it doesn't work with my current business model. In order to keep to my two-week turnaround for edited session images, respond to emails and texts as quickly as I do and manage a personal life (I'm a wife and mom too), the in-person meetings that caused me to drive all of the town had to go.
In addition, I like to keep a written record of my client's session needs because I am crazy busy and want to ensure I don't miss or forget anything important in regards to your session. You're welcome to shoot me a text or email prior to scheduling if you have any questions for me. I usually respond the same day, unless I'm traveling or it's a holiday.

"When and how will I get my photos?"
It all depends on the session you schedule so here's the breakdown.
If you schedule an Erotic Photography Session and choose Session Package One, you'll receive the memory card out of the camera at the close of your session.
If you book any of my other session packages, regardless of the session style, it'll take about 2 weeks from your session date for me to retouch your session images and prepare your viewing gallery for you. You'll receive an email with the link and password for your online gallery as soon as it's ready for you.
You'll have access to download any images that are included in your session package right away.
Your viewing gallery will stay active for two weeks to give you the time to make any purchases, should you choose to.
If you schedule Session Package Three, of either session style, a USB of images is included with your session package. Once your gallery expires, your USB of retouched images, unedited images, and any additional photo products that you ordered will be processed and shipped to you. When your photo order ships, I'll send you an email with your tracking number so you know when to expect it. It will be shipped directly from me, rather than my company, for added privacy.
Most photo gift orders that are placed through your viewing gallery are designed, packaged and shipped within 2-3 weeks of my receiving the order.
Shipping within the continental United States is included in the price of all of my photo products.
Additional charges apply to orders shipped outside the continental United States.
"How far in advance should I schedule my session?"
If you have date and time restrictions for your session, such as you'll only be in Vegas for three days or you need your pictures back in time to gift for your anniversary, I suggest contacting me as soon as possible to get your session scheduled. While last minute sessions are sometimes available, I do tend to book in advance and do not want you to miss out on such an exciting and rewarding experience.
Last minute sessions are considered to be a session that is being scheduled with less than 7 days until shoot date and will require a payment in full to schedule.
Same day and next day session requests cannot be accommodated.
I always advise clients who need their pictures back by a certain date to schedule their session a minimum of 8 weeks before the day they hope to have their pictures in hand. Rush processing of galleries may be available for an additional fee and can be requested when submitting a session request form.
If you have special scheduling needs or time restrictions, contact me for more information.
"How do I schedule a session?"
All of my scheduling is done entirely online for privacy and convenience. First, select "Session Options" from the main menu of my website. Read through the session style descriptions to decide which style is the best for you. Click through to check out the session package options for your selected session style and submit an online Session Request Form through the link at the bottom of the session page.
After receiving your session request form, I'll check my calendar for availability and will be in touch as soon as possible.
"Do you offer any discounts or ever run specials?"
I love my social media family and to show my appreciation I will sometimes offer free products, will run contests or giveaway gift certificates. Connect with me on Instagram so you don't miss out!
"Can I bring a friend to my session?"
The way you feel during your session greatly affects the overall look and feel of your final images. My job is to ease your nerves and help you feel as comfortable as possible so that you have an enjoyable session experience and a beautiful photo gallery. One of the most important things that I have learned over the last decade or so is that less is more and while most people think that having a familiar face in the room during a session they are nervous about would be helpful, this actually isn't so.
Outside influences can change the feel of the session, interrupt the flow of the shoot and break my concentration. Working one on one with a client or couple allows me to concentrate on you and be more productive. Because of this, I have a closed session policy. This means that I work one-on-one with my clients to ensure a private experience and only the person(s) being photographed are able to be present during the session. I encourage you to have a friend or loved one stay with you until I arrive at your location or have them accompany you to my location if that makes you more comfortable, but it will just be you and me when it's time for your session to begin.
"What do you consider nudity?"
My personal and company policy on nudity is simple. I will never publish or share an image on my website or social media sites that show a full female nipple, a vagina, or penis. I also never share personal information, such as client names, to protect my client's privacy. Bare bottoms, cleavage, side boob, backs, stomachs, and sexually suggestive images are frequently shared and are not something that I consider to be offensive.
As I'm sure you can understand, potential clients need to see a portfolio of work before deciding a photographer is right for them. Every image shared on my website and social media sites are images that were captured and retouched for a client. I am proud to give my potential clients a good representation of what they can expect from a session with me, which is why I have always opted to share client images rather than hire professional models.
If you are planning to schedule a Boudoir or Erotic session with me and would prefer that I do not release web appropriate images from your session to be shared with potential clients, my Session Package Option Three was designed for complete privacy and should be what you schedule.
"I can't make it to Las Vegas. Can you come to my city?"
I frequently travel to my clients for their sessions and I'd love to come to your city. When traveling, I provide my clients with a session experience either in a hotel local to the area or in the comfort of their own home. Sessions are available worldwide. Travel fees do apply. Contact me for details.
"Am I able to purchase a session for my girlfriend/wife/friend?"
Of course! If she's ready to schedule, you can submit a Session Request Form online and add your email into the message session with a note that you'd like to receive the invoice for her session. You can either pay the session's deposit or the session fee in full to secure the session in our calendar. If she's not ready to set a date yet, gift certificates are available. Visit my Gift Certificate Page for more details.
"Are there any restrictions of what we can do during our couple's erotic session?"
Your session time is yours to do as you please and the only restrictions for your session are of a legal nature.
- no weapons during your session time
- all subjects being photographed must be 18 years of age or older
- all parties must consent to be photographed
"Can we add a third person to our erotic session?"
Absolutely! If you have a third person you're wanting to bring into your erotic session, as long as they are 18 years of age or older and consent to be photographed, you are more than welcome to invite them along. However, as my client, you should know that my photography services agreement is with you and your session images will be provided to you and you alone. It will be up to you to provide the images to your third party should you choose to and I'd advise you to make your own agreement with your third party to avoid any issues regarding the use of your images.
"Can you supply a person or model to take part in a session with my girlfriend/wife?"
I get this question often and the answer will always be no.
Do I have an issue photographing your girlfriend/wife with someone other than you?
That answer is also, No.
I'm an open-minded woman who shoots naked/half-naked people in Las Vegas and I've been doing this a very long time. Everyone has their "thing" and I have no problem photographing whatever your "thing" may be. However, it's entirely up to you to figure your situation out.
I'm not a matchmaker.
This needs no further explanation.
"Do you have a separate erotic gallery somewhere that isn't part of your portfolio that I can view?"
