We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) for your convenience. Illustrate Sexy is here for you. Let us know if we have missed anything that you would like go over.


Do I need a pre-portrait consultation?

Our complimentary pre-portrait consultation will be the perfect time to chat about your ideas and how we can best accommodate your thoughts, dreams and desires. You can do this over the phone or in person. Feel free to bring samples of what you’ve found or create a Pinterest Board so we can be better prepared for your Illustrate Sexy session. Remember, we have your best interest at heart so working together as a team is important to us! We don’t want it to be stressful, so take some time and check out the Galleries on our website to see what other Divas have done. You can also look through magazines and catalogs (Maxxim, Playboy, W Magazine and Victorias Secret catalogs are all great for posing, clothing and prop ideas).

What do I bring to my session?

An Illustrate Sexy portrait experience is about creating images that capture the essence of what you think is sexy. So, the first step is for you to decide what that is. Lingerie? Satin sheets? Cutoffs, boots and a cowboy hat? Boy shorts and a tank top? Nylons and great heels? Nothing on at all? Is it sweet or seductive? Strength or the curves of your body? A smile or coy expression? Is it laughter? Is it edgy with fun, funky lighting or softer and romantic? The possibilities are endless . . .

The second step in deciding what to bring is to determine ‘why’ you’ve decided to participate in this diva adventure. Are you doing this for yourself or will the images be a gift for someone special? If so, what do you think they might like or think is sexy? Maybe it’s a little bit of both?


Do I need to come early to get ready?

No. Based on the Collection you purchase we will have set aside plenty of time for your photography experience as well as having your hair and makeup done by one of our professionals.We will calculate that into the timeline for the day. Arriving on time is important to maximize your fun so don’t be late!


Is it normal to be nervous about my Illustrate Sexy session?

Yes, but you don’t need to be! Our number one priority is that you feel comfortable and enjoy the experience, this is all about YOU. You may have some butterflies in your stomach at first, but once we get started you’re going to relax and have a blast while we create amazing images that will truly represent you and all of your sexiness!


I’ve never done this before . How will I know how to ‘pose’?

It’s not about ‘posing’ as much as it is about just being you. Though it may sound silly, practice in the mirror. It really works! We’re going to work with you to create images that represent what you think is sexy and we’ll be there to guide you through it. This is what we do and we love doing it so just relax, have fun and trust us!


Can I bring someone with me to the session?

We can understand why you think you might want to but believe us they will only serve as a distraction and make you more self-conscious. Photographing one on one gives us the opportunity to work the magic behind the camera and also allows us to take care of the details and make sure you look fabulous. We hope this thought process will start getting you excited about your experience.


What is your payment policy?

All Collections are confirmed with full payment at the time you schedule your appointment to eliminate any stress of monatary transactions the day of your experience. We have a 48 hour cancellation policy. Should you need to reschedule, and do so, prior to 48 hours of your session we will apply the amount to your rescheduled session date. If you do not contact us prior to 48hours of your session then your initial payment is forfeited. We accept cash, check or credit card (convenience fees apply on cr card transactions).


What happens after my Boudoir session?

We hope you’ll spend the next few days telling everyone you know about what a great experience you’ve had! Technically though, approximately two to three weeks after the session, you will be invited back to the studio to view your photos for the first time on our big screen! This is where you will place your order.Once your order arrives at our studio you can come pick it up at your convenience, night or day, whether we are in the office or not. We will leave your order in our entryway out of the elements and protected.

Will my images be retouched, and is it included in the price?

We take great pride in our photography and want nothing but the best for our clients. That means one of our highly skilled Illustrate Sexy artists will analyze each image and determine how artwork may best enhance it. Our Photo Magic is a 10 step process that includes things like light blending of facial lines, softening of eye bags, whitening eyes and teeth, removing blemishes, lengthening or darkening eyelashes and removing facial shine. Our Photo Magic is complimentary and included on any image you select for your album or additional purchase options. Additional retouching services are also available and priced based on the amount of work necessary.

Will my images be used on your website?

All the images you see on our website, blog or PR pieces have been approved for use by the individuals photographed. We have a Model Release form that we will ask you to sign if you are comfortable giving us permission to include your images for our publicity purposes if not, then we would NEVER publish or use an image from your session. We respect your right to privacy and that is a major reason you will view your images at our studio and not online.


Is it important to work with a professional makeup artist and hair stylist?

All of our session INCLUDE Hair & Makeup. It is our professional opinion that having your hair styled and makeup applied by trained and licensed artists not only adds to the beauty of your final images but also enhances your overall experience. Our team is the BEST so you are in good hands.  The feeling of being pampered through these services will set the perfect tone for how the rest of your time will be spent with us. Photography makeup differs for normal everyday makeup.It is not near the amount you would apply to be “camera ready”. Even though you might have things mastered day to day, our team will have you looking like a model.  

Can I bring ‘props’ to my Illustrate Sexy session?

Yes, we recommend you do as they can help personalize your photographs. Bring in any type of prop you think will enhance your Illustrate Sexy experience but remember that it’s really all about you and overdoing it can sometimes overwhelm the image.
