Toronto Boudoir Photography by Female Photographer Alishba — 40th Birthday photoshoot idea

40th Birthday Celebration of a Strong Woman



Single Mom & IT Consultant | ★★★★★ / More Testimonials

"My 20s were about my career, my 30s were about my kids, and my 40s are going to be about me."

This beautiful woman came to my Toronto Boudoir Studio all the way from Vancouver, BC to do her Boudoir photoshoot. Among other things, she wanted to mark her 40th Birthday, a milestone birthday, which she has dedicated towards self-love and self-care. I would like you to read the following or watch the video where she tells her story in her own words. I would like to warn you that her story contains elements of a traumatized childhood brought on by sexual abuse, arranged marriage, and forced cultural conservatism. I hope you will find it in your heart to watch this story and fine hope and inspiration from how Nasra beat all odds and became this strong, independent, successful woman.

“My name is Nasra and I’m 40 years old.

I’m a single mom of two kids and I live in Vancouver, BC. I’m an IT consultant.

I’ve been very bitter about my upbringing and my marriage. Stories that I was told growing up about what it means to be a woman.

The first thing was that I would be protected by the men in my life. Primarily things like hijab, I was forced to wear hijab when I was 13. And I was definitely raised to be a modest Muslim Pakistani girl.

All of that was irrelevant because I was molested by 8 different people growing up.

From the time I was 4 till I was 16. And all of these people were the people that I knew. Some of them family members. One of them went to prison for a couple of years for what he did. And so, to me, you know, that protection was never there.

I was groomed to be a housewife.

I was not allowed to go away for university. I could only attend university if I paid for it myself, which was hard because I was not allowed to work. And I could only do it if it didn’t get in the way of me getting married.

So halfway through my degree, which I ended up going to my local university, even though I had opportunities to attend great universities like U of T, I got married to a man who had an engineering degree from the US. And he ticked all the boxes that he would make a great provider. And 17 years into the marriage, he never had an engineering job. For the first 10 years he didn’t work at all or had odd jobs. During that time, my career took off and the more I got promoted, the more he felt insecure about himself and the more insecure he felt, the more he put me down. So those last few years the gap had become so huge that it became unbearable.

Two years ago I decided to buy my own house and move out with my kids. And ever since I’ve done that, my life has improved by leaps and bounds.

And right now I feel free, I feel empowered, I feel like I’ve never felt better.

So this photoshoot was definitely a culmination of all those feelings.

When I first saw the proofs right after our session I was very critical of myself, like I always am, Like, you know, I wish I had lost a few more pounds before I had the shoot. I was very critical. But now, after, you know, a couple of weeks has passed looking at the photos now I’m like, “I look pretty good!” Being really analytical after I became single again I was like I need to look really good if I wanna have a chance finding love again. I had this really high bar that I had set for myself.

Looking at those photos I think I feel like I’ve met my bar.

I’ve lost 50 pounds over the last 5 years. I’ve been really into health and exercise and that shows in those photos.

I feel triumphant.

When I was young, I had no idea that I had a great body. Now that I have dated a few men, they’ve all told me that, “you have great legs!” How come I didn’t know I had great legs when I was young? When I could’ve, you know — it took away  so much of my power. And you may think like, “you’re only validated when a man thinks you’re hot?”

Well, no.

(Sexual confidence) gives you confidence in all areas.

When you are young, that sexual power is very powerful. And to be stripped of that — That’s what patriarchy’s goal is, to strip women from that power from a very young age. So, yes, I’m bitter that I was not able to choose when I could have when I was younger.

I’m very hesitant to spend money on myself.

And for the last few months I have been telling myself that hey that I’ve met all my financial goals. I had a 20 year plan. You know, I have a house, I have a healthy RRSP fund, I have RESPs for my kids, I basically bought a house for my ex so that my kids have a nice place in the same neighbourhood to go to when they are with their dad.

So I checked off all those goals.

And now, it’s time for me.

So, my 20s were about my career, my 30s were about my kids, and my 40s are gonna be about me.”

Who would want these images of me?

Haven’t got anyone who you could give these images to to show what a fabulous woman they have in their lives?

Okay, then how about doing this photoshoot to REMIND YOURSELF about what a FABULOUS woman you are?

Do this photoshoot so you feel EMPOWERED.

Do this photoshoot so you START LOVING YOURSELF AGAIN.

Do this photoshoot so you can HAVE CONTROL OVER HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF.

I suffer from the photographer’s curse because, dear lord, I hardly ever like the pictures I see of myself from the phone cameras often taken by friends and family who love me. But I don’t let it trick me into thinking that I look bad.

Because I know that my social media images are not going in my LEGACY ALBUM or on the walls of my home and that my friends and family can’t possibly know the difference between the wrong angle and the right angle; the right light and the wrong light, the right distance and the wrong zoom… they aren’t paying attention to my hair flying in all directions or the food stuck between my teeth. They don’t know how to focus the lens on the right part of my features…

But YOU don’t have that problem!

You know why?

Because you have me! Your expert, professional photographer as well as my styling team!

Don’t let these constant phone-tapped pictures take over your life. Let me show you what you really look like, you gorgeous woman!


Take a leap of faith.

And I will be here, on the other side, to catch you and make you feel as wonderful as you deserve to feel by giving you the most beautiful picture you have ever seen of yourself.

The Real Reason Why Boudoir Photography Costs This Much

When you decide to shop for a luxury item, doesn’t matter if it’s a brand new car or a piece of furniture, you always want to make sure that your investment is worth your hard earned-money. And if you’re a mom, like me, you always first think if the money you are about to spend on that beautiful lingerie set at Nordstorm can be put towards something your little ones want. The enormous amount of guilt-trip and self-lamentation that goes into should you even dare to spend a fraction of your money on yourself… all the judgemental foreign voices of “selfish,” “vain,” and “indulgent” start eating up your headspace… Isn’t it true?

It’s sad and unfortunate how much doing something rewarding, refreshing, and valuable for ourselves sends us into this unfair spiral of self-doubt and worthlessness. That we are reduced to compare pleasures necessary to nourish our souls with new shoes for our kids or getting new blinds for the house; especially when the new car will last us five years, the furniture will wear and tear, kids will outgrow their shoes, and we will eventually move to a new house with new curtains and blinds — all of the things which aren’t our “forever” investments. But the amount of energy we, the women, spend trying to justify and then find the loopholes in the arguments in favour of us spending the money on ourselves, even when it’s something as precious, timeless, and “forever” as existing in a photograph to preserve how we want to remember ourselves and be remembered — it breaks my heart how we keep talking ourselves out of it.

I want you to know that you and I are very much alike in this regard. As a mother who spends the better part of her day working non-stop, I have no problem dropping a good $50 on some ridiculous and un-educational toy my kid said she wanted but find myself thinking twice about buying a $4 mocha Frappuccino on a hot summer’s day after dropping the kid off to daycare…

I’ll be honest with you here: A Magazine-Style, Full Service Boudoir Photography experience is a luxury.

This is a want.

And it is becomes a need for the woman who feels like:

  • She ain’t got “it” anymore.
  • The confident head-turner she used to be doesn’t exist anymore.
  • Her youth is slipping away.
  • The corporate world has made her into this stone-cold, straight-faced pant-suit woman who is scared to let her hair down.
  • She spent all her youth changing diapers and truly has nothing to “show” for anymore.
  • Being “sexy” is not tasteful or classy but every time she looks at Shakira on TV or a Victoria’s Secret billboard, she dwindles into daydreaming of having the opportunity to have herself captured like that at least once in her life.

And this brings me to why I created Dream Boudoir Experience — because every woman who walks out of my studio feels like a brand new version of herself after her shoot with me. She walks a little taller, feels a little hotter, and stands a bit more confident. This is not a “photoshoot.” Photos are a mere part of the experience. This is a session which will change your life and the way you look at the woman in the mirror every morning.

Let me ask you this: What is your self-worth? What price tag would you put on your confidence? How much would you pay for a chance to feel validated in your own skin, without judgement, shame, burden, guilt, hatred, or becoming invisible? I’m sure your answer must be that “my self-worth, my confidence, my existence is PRICELESS!” And because ANY experienced, good, and qualified photographer would want you to feel ECSTATICALLY PRICELESS all the time, we would never want to skimp out on the service, the experience, the professionalism, the expertise, and the quality of products we want you to have. Let me walk you through this a bit more:


The Boudoir Experience You Deserve

When I created my boudoir photography studio in Toronto, I wanted to be the BEST photographer out there. Blame it on my full-scholarship-winning go-getter personality but I was not about to sit down, compromise, and do whatever Jane down the street with her cheap DSLR is doing. I wanted to have the best camera and lenses in the market to shoot the highest and best resolution possible. Spending 100s of hours and $1000s to learn from the best and perfect my craft was a given. I wanted to know how to create natural light if it’s dark and snowing like crazy in Toronto on your shoot day so we are not dependent on the sun — so I learned the craft and bought the most expensive and perfect studio lighting equipment available in the industry.

Sourcing and creating the best sets and scenes was always a priority. Spending a tonne of money testing different make up artists and hair stylists to find the absolute best ones to include in a team was a task I took on without questions. Instead of getting your money like Jane with DSLR, and completely leaving you on your own to find a location, wardrobe, makeup artist, hair stylist, leather crafter for your album, internationally recognized professional labs with the newest inkjet printers for superior museum quality prints, and whatnot, I actually DO ALL THE WORK FOR YOU! I want this experience to be all about you! The entire 6-hour day is designed to make you feel like you at the centre of this universe. And guess what? All of this with strawberries and whipped cream snacks!


Jane Doe, The Cheap Photographer

Remember when I asked you how much your self-worth is worth? Many photographers are either not confident in their art or are exploited because they are young and don’t realize how much time and money it goes into creating a mind-blowing creative piece of art.

The photographers who are not confident in their art are the photographers who know their photography is nowhere close to being good enough and that there is no consistency in their photos — where one session might produce great images but the next session will have terrible lighting and poses leaving you wondering how your own session will turn out and if it was all a waste of time and money. Two things happen to such side-hustle photography “businesses:” They quickly learn their craft and realize what it takes to create beautiful photographs and give excellent customer service and soon make a pricelist that’s compatible with industry standards or they soon go out of business because they simply cannot create the product a proper creative business can create.

The other photographer, who is good but charges less than a meal at The Keg, two things can happen to them: Either they give up their passion and love for photography and take up a regular 9 to 5 OR they realize that in order to keep creating the kind of photographs that win international awards and give people the opportunity to own their photos in the same quality as you would see in an art gallery, they need to properly run a business which has full customer service and best products and gear which will then reflect in their session price and print-digital packages.

Good and consistent photography comes at a cost. Learning the craft of lighting and exposure, a business that shows exemplary professionalism, legal credentials, liability insurances, reliability and dependability — all of this is reflected when the client sees their final print and digital images because the quality speaks for itself.


The Right Photographer for You

A portrait and boudoir photography experience is going to be one of the most sentimental and emotional purchases of your life. A professional, full-time photographer will know how to create flattering photos of women of all shapes, sizes, colours, and styles. Nothing but the experience of photographing constantly and consistently will equip a photographer to get the client in their most comfortable, relaxed, and confident self to create images she will forever cherish. For these reasons, you need to put real consideration into the photographer that’s right for you.

For me to create one image of you that you love, it doesn’t take the one hour of consultation, the one hour of makeup, the two hours of photography session, the one hour of review and ordering — it takes my entire lifetime of learning the craft and applying it to your needs. The value of a good artist will be demonstrated when you will look back at your pictures as recently as five years from now and will realize how thankful you are that you trusted the artist to capture a point in your life that you will never have again.


The Time Devoted

The hours that I spend with each client is the reason why every season is perfectly designed and executed to meet their needs. To capture the essence of your personality, you deserve my undivided attention and active listening. I want you to love your experience and not just the photos. I want you to know that you are with a trusted confidante and not just a photographer. I want you to feel comfortable enough to talk about your deepest desires and fears. It is not uncommon for me to meet clients who immediately divulge in how they can’t remember the last time they had sex with their partner or how empowered they feel that they have finally left an abusive relationship or the demands of workplace had left them feeling reduced to a mere piece of the puzzle and not an entirety in itself. I am not a trained counsellor but I have an open heart where I welcome all that’s upsetting you or all that you are celebrating and create images for you where you see yourself in the best light possible.

If you are thinking that I cost “this much” for merely a couple of hours of shooting time, let me tell you that those two hours are the easiest of my entire process. This is what all goes into making beautiful images in my studio:

  • Phone consultation before booking your session: 30 Minutes
  • In-person/Phone consultation after booking your session to design your shoot: 1 hour
  • Preparation time before you come to the studio and wrap up after the shoot: 2 hours
  • Photoshoot, hair and makeup, viewing and ordering session: 6 hours
  • Post-processing, editing, and retouching per 20 images: 12 hours
  • Album design/printed mats assembly and delivery: 3 hours
  • Quality assurance, production lab sequence, and pickup/shipping: 1-2 hours
  • Education and conferences: On average 3 hours per week
  • Studio equipment management and legal reviews: 2 hours per week

On average, I spend 20 – 32 hours on each client! My costs reflect the dedication I put towards your session. I don’t seem “that expensive” now, do I? 😉


The Reality

Jane down the street charging $100 for 50 pictures does not have $30,000 of professional cameras and studio equipment. She also probably doesn’t have the following expenses:

  • Liability Insurance
  • Camera and equipment insurance
  • Printing and Album
  • Employees
  • Professional Associations Memberships
  • Top-of-the-Line Softwares and Computers
  • Office Admin costs
  • Travel and Accommodation
  • Phone and electricity
  • Studio
  • Sets and props
  • Expos and Fairs
  • Education and professional classes fee
  • Internet and Hosting fee
  • Backup devices and cloud storage
  • And the list goes on…

So when you ask why something is so expensive, it definitely helps to consider the process it takes to produce the value. Sometimes taking a hit on quality and going to Walmart for a T-shirt might seem like a good idea when you have a paint-the-hospital charity day. But would you still compromise on quality when you are contracting someone to do your house flooring? Or when you need something as permanent as a photograph on your 30th birthday knowing that you will never be 30 again? You have to ask yourself if you would rather be disappointed or deliriously happy? Would you rather regret not doing something which you know is important for your soul or do it despite all your doubts and realize that making the credit card payment or being on my interest-free payment plan was really not as indulgent you were initially feeling?

If you can feel even 10% of the happiness, confidence, self-love, and appreciation as my other clients, and if you really feel like you need to do something to celebrate your new milestones or shed off the old skin you don’t want to be reminded of, then this session is going to be worth way more for you than even my Black Label Collection <3

Dream Boudoir Toronto Studio — Romantic bridal boudoir Photography Female Photographer

What is a Boudoir Photoshoot?

Imagine walking onto a shoot for Victoria’s Secret Angels: You come in with your track pants and a jacket on with bare-face and a messy bun. Someone from our female-only staff, closed set walks over to you, offers to carry your coffee cup, your garment bag, and your handbag while you settle yourself in with beautiful music playing in the background to get you in the mood. This is how your perfect Toronto boudoir photography experience will begin the day of the shoot.

Once you’re settled in, your wardrobe combinations are put together according to your preferences. No more wondering on your own what to wear for your boudoir shoot. YOU DECIDE if you want a bra/jeans combo or the sexist lacey bodysuit. I will be there to help you guide and style along the way if you need any assistance. You’ll be free to use a carefully curated studio wardrobe collection as well if you so choose (consider coming in for a free fitting appointment when you book your session).

I help you accessorize your look, maybe with your personal collection which may have your grandmother’s necklace to preserve in photos forever or something you like in the studio.

You’re put into a makeup chair. You have one of Toronto’s best hair stylist and makeup artist professionals ask you about the look you want: YOU DECIDE if you want big, beach waves for your hair or a sleek blowout; if you want a barely-there Meghan Markle [link] look or if you want to go all out like Adriana Lima walking the runway [will link].

Once you love what you see in the mirror, we start with one of the four boudoir sets in the studio, designed especially for you: The Bed, The Chaise, The Royal Vintage, and The 50th Shade of Grey.


And we go:




I will personally guide you through your best boudoir poses and style. We will dive deep in who you are as a person and how you want to see yourself and preserve that for all the time to come.

We will start with a series of classy poses, working on the philosophy of “less is more.” We will go from mostly covered to pushing the limits of your comfort zone. Most of the ladies who come to my studio think that they wouldn’t want to show “too much” mainly due to not having enough confidence in how they look — but, ten minutes into the boudoir session and they often ask me, “can we do a tasteful topless shot?!”

My answer is always, “Hell yeah!”

Wear less, do more! 😉

This stress-free, me-time is designed to make you feel comfortable and help you focus on taking care of yourself. You won’t have to think about anything else other than being present, mindful, and enjoying the serenity of self-love.


Planning Your Boudoir Photoshoot


When planning your boudoir photoshoot in Toronto, there are a few important things that you should know about. The tiniest details matter so much and I make sure that the studio staff takes it all into consideration during your shoot. Click here to download our beautiful and detailed Dream Shoot Planner if you already haven’t. This is your step by step exclusive guide to everything boudoir!

Choosing Your Boudoir Session Style

You are one of a kind and there is no reason why your boudoir session should also be anything less than that. Your custom-designed session will focus on what you find the most beautiful and during our phone consultation, we will explore what kind of images you are drawn to the most and would like to see yourself as. This could be:



Bright, airy, fresh, natural light, backlit, high-key romantic boudoir photography:


Flattering for your skin and that softness in your images.

This is ideal for bridal boudoir or birthday boudoir images. 


Noir, slight grain, film style, low-key, black and white boudoir photography:


Designed to display the supermodel bombshell that you are and doing so artistically.


These make beautiful wall displays that can be a part of your or your loved one’s private art collection. 



Vintage, pin-up style boudoir photography:


This is your calling if you are drawn to the fun, doll-like images from Marylin Monroe’s 1950s or if you’re a 1920s flapper dress girl.


Without all the background noise of sexism, this session style is re-purposed to make you feel empowered and sexy in a fashion style you identify with.



Natural wilderness, the beach, Hamilton’s waterfalls, Outdoor Boudoir Photography:

These are just a few examples if you are a beyond-the-four-walls girls. Due to the weather, these outdoor Toronto Boudoir Sessions are only offered in the summer months.

However, I am available to travel to virtually any part of the world you want me to capture you — how does the Bahamas sound to beat Toronto’s cold in January? 😉


You are in complete control of the setting of your shoot and the style of your images. I have four beautiful sets in the studio to choose from and I’m a short drive from the beach. Allow for a bit of travel time and we can shoot your Hamilton boudoir session at a waterfall location. This is ALL ABOUT YOU. When you book your session, you will also be given a complimentary one hour session planning consultation time with me which you can come to my studio for (we can also do a fitting appointment and see if you’d like to wear any of the studio wardrobe) or we can connect over the phone and go through your preferences. The possibilities are endless and we will explore everything that makes you happy!


Your bombshell inner goddess:

If this is your first time doing a boudoir shoot, your most urgent issue must be what to wear! (link) The good thing is that I’m here to help! And the BEST thing is that I have designed an exclusive what to wear for your boudoir shoot guide which also lists places you can go shopping! You will receive this beautiful e-book complimentary along with your session booking. How cool is that?

I will guide you as much or as little as you want with choosing outfits that flatter your body the most. We will accentuate your curves and minimize the things about your body you’re not crazy about.

We’ll work on creating a color palette for you based on your personal taste. From there, we will move to your dressing sense — always remember that this session is for you to SHINE so don’t be afraid if you want to try something that is totally out of your comfort zone. We are here to give you the confidence boost you so deserve!

You’re also very welcome to raid our studio closet! We have a mix of lingerie, formal wear, beautiful skirts, tops, and LOTS of jewelry and props to use for the shoot. I recommend coming in for your fitting appoint prior to the shoot so we can create a wardrobe style for you. You will also be able to view our beautiful print products and wall art samples to decide how would you eventually want to preserve you beautiful images.


Transform into a glamour starlet!

Professional make-up and hair styling is one of the most important parts about your boudoir photoshoot experience. It can make or break your forever images. I always, always only hire the best and top industry professionals to be a part of my hair and makeup team. This team is trained in film make-up and will create exactly the look you ask them to. All-glitter or barely-there, you are in charge of the vision and they will paint exactly that with flawless perfection.

All you have to do is cleanse your face the night before, prep it with a night-cream for perfect texture, wash with water and moisturize it the next day, and show up! It’s that easy! With a clean, prepped face, we will take care of the glamorous you! You will receive a detailed Beauty Preparation Guide with your booking to help you more in depth if you plan to take a spa day before the shoot and really treat yourself with a full beauty regimen!

For your hair, just wash and blow-dry the day or six hours before your shoot and let our artists know if you’d like sexy beachy waves or a more sleek look. They are experts and can work with all kinds of hair.

And here’s an idea! After your shoot, you will be all set and ready for a hot date! Don’t have a significant other? Go out with your girls and turn heads as you walk down the street! You will feel and look like a million bucks so let’s put it to use!


Flow posing, just like Flow Yoga!

As easy as 1, 2, 3, I will guide you down to your fingertips to capture you in the most sensual and flattering way you have ever been photographed! Much like a career in medicine or education, a professional photographer like me never stops investing in perfecting and polishing the craft. Which means, not only learning from the best teachers in the industry, which includes people like Annie Leibovitz, Vanity Fair Magazine’s Mark Seliger, my internship with the Walt Disney Company, and so on, I also never stop shooting! Passion and client projects alike, I have made sure that I apply all of my knowledge to easy you and direct you into the best posing and angles for you.

We’ll set the mood and bring out the expression and body language needed to make your image come alive. If, at any point, you are not comfortable with a pose, we will stop right away and try something different. Being a professional in this work of passion, you can rest assured that I have a plethora of flow posing which will feel like a light workout, but we will be able to easy find the poses that you love!


Preparing for Your Boudoir Session

The more prepared we get you, the better your beautiful images will turn out! We will make sure that you are not only physically ready but also in the mindset needed to celebrate the real you! Together, we will make this boudoir photography session the best photoshoot experience you’ve ever had!

Make sure you have nothing more than moisturizer on your face when you come in. Our talented makeup artists will work on enhancing your beauty.

A simple blow-dry out of shower the night before would be ideal. You don’t need to style your hair and you shouldn’t use any hair products in your hair prior to your arrival. A professional hair stylist will be on set in the studio to do it all for you!

If you like tanning, make sure you don’t do it in the days prior to your boudoir photoshoot. Avoiding lying out in the sun for at least three days prior to your shoot is a good idea to avoid tan lines. Also, you shouldn’t do spray tanning, either! It will make your skin appear orange and tan lines do not look flattering in boudoir images.

If you wax, you should make your waxing appointment at least two days before to your photo session to avoid any redness and bumps on your skin.


Above all, start mentally preparing yourself and avoid any negative self-talk in the days leading up to your shoot. I will send you an e-book I have designed especially for you to help you physically and mentally prepare for the session once we have your date booked and confirmed. This session is all about you and loving yourself. Embrace it and be shamelessly feminine!


Luxury, museum-quality EXCLUSIVE print products

When the session is over and your order is complete, you will have the following options to take home with you:

Designer Albums:

These are perfect for you to show off your boudoir photos in a discrete and personal way. You can tuck away your album on the shelf, then bring out when you or your special someone want to indulge. My studio albums are printed and produced in a state-of-the-art photography lab based in Venice, Italy. This quality is not provided by any other artisan and you will be ecstatic about this final product!

Wall Art:

Superior museum-quality canvas and wall mount prints allows you to create your own art collection. Displaying your gorgeous image, this can be a great addition to your bedroom, bathroom, or even in your significant other’s walk-in closet so whenever they shuffle their hanged clothes, they catch a glimpse of your beautiful self!

Luxury Glass Boxes and Matted and Mounted Prints:

For a private display of your favourite images yet having the option to display a gallery, you will love our luxury box options. The state-of-the-art professional photography printing lab in Italy that I am a member of has produced gorgeous boxes for me to present your ready-to-frame images into. You have the option of a Legacy Box which is a designer covered box, perfect for keepsake. Another option is our Luxury Reveal Box, presented in vegan leather base with a light glass cover where you can easy change the top image if you would like to display your beautiful images on a rotation basis. These boxes come in different sizes and different numbers of printed images giving you the freedom to choose what works best for you. These boxes allow you to individually gift an image or two to your sweetheart when they need to travel without sending the entire box.

Novelty Items:

From Christmas ornaments to calendars, I can design a one-of-a-kind novelty gift for you. Please let me know what you are interested in when we book your session and I will provide you with a custom quote for these specialized products.



Once your session is scheduled, there are a few things to keep in regards to your timeline:With your hair, makeup, styling, shooting, and same-day viewing, it will take anywhere between 3 – 5 hours of total time the day of the session. This gives us enough time for you to try out all the different poses, wardrobe, and the different sets I have in studio.

Once I’ve captured your glowing, beautiful, confident self, we will take a short break. I will give you a Starbucks gift voucher down the street where you can grab lunch or you can choose to chill and relax in the studio with Netflix on the iPad. In that one hour, I will narrow down your best shots from the session and you will then get to see and order your images and products the same day!

Yes, you read that right: No need to wait for a ‘reveal’ session. It will take 2-3 weeks from when you complete your payment for your images to be retouched, processed, and delivered to you. Digital archives will be sent via download link and physical products will be available for pickup when they arrive in the studio from Italy. If picking up is not an option for you, I can also ship your order to you for a small shipping fee contribution.

Your images will be available for viewing an hour after the session. These will not be retouched images but a simple selection of the best from the session for your purchase. Retouched images of the ones you order will be ready two weeks after your payment has been made in full. This will gives me the time to carefully hand-edit and hand-retouch each images as masterfully as I can with careful attention to detail. If you’re in a rush, I can set up a rush order for you for a fee.

Your albums, wall art, folio boxes etc will take 2 – 3 weeks from when your retouched images are completed. If you have a rush deadline, let me know and I can see if I can help you out.


Payment Plans:
