Read on to discover why boudoir is for every woman…

 

A: Easy! All you have to do is contact us to schedule your boudoir experience.

***NOTICE***

We are currently booked to capacity for 2018!
If you want to receive email notifications as 2019 time slots become available, please complete our contact form by clicking here.
A: You should schedule your session no later than 6-8 weeks prior to needing your product in hand.

Our calendar does fill quickly. We're currently booking for 2019. The more in advance you secure your date, the longer you have to plan!
A: You can expect to be in our studio up to 3 hours for a full boudoir session.
A: In our gorgeous studio located right in the heart of downtown Scranton, PA. We tailor sessions to each individual - so if you are a wild child at heart and want outdoor photos, we will work together to plan something fun.
A: Oh please - they may look it, but none of our clients are models! No modeling experience is necessary. That’s because our photographer Ashley is the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area’s only boudoir specialist and an excellent coach. She poses you from your fingertips to your toes, flattering all your angles and curves and ensuring stunning photographs.
A: Anything that makes you feel sexy, sensual, or just plain powerful. Boudoir isn’t about what you wear (or don’t!), it’s about embracing your fierce essence as a woman. Because of this, you can do a boudoir shoot in lingerie, a dress, button-up, or your birthday suit! And, we offer dedicated wardrobe assistance and access to our robust Client Closet.
A: Our client closet is a great option for women who don't have time to go shopping before their session. A lot of women also choose to go shopping and borrow items from our closet for more versatile looks. Check out items in our client closet here.
A: Our session fee is $550 and our clients spend between $1,700 to $2,500 on digitals and print products. A non-refundable $550 down payment is required for booking.

A: No. The retainer fee of $550 secures your chosen session date and time and includes your welcome & preparation guide, professional makeup application, lash application, professional dry hair styling, 1.5 hour boudoir experience - time for 3 outfits, standard retouching, pose and expression coaching, client closet access, wardrobe selection assistance, and your private photo reveal/ordering appointment. All digital images and products are sold separately during your reveal.
A: Heck yes - super flexible and interest free, too! Although some clients prefer paying in full during their reveal, we also offer payment plans which break up the total amount into weekly or biweekly payments to help accommodate your budget.
A: Oh girl, get ready to be pampered. Our professional hair and makeup artist Maria is a veteran of the beauty industry who provides on-location styling for all our Simply Lush Dolls. As a matter of fact, her glamorous services include dry hair-styling, full make-up, and lashes!
A: No. We recommend hair and makeup by our on-site artist. Maria knows how to carefully tailor your style to what you are wearing for your session and beautifully enhances your true essence as a woman with professional grade makeup. Plus, this is also a part of the experience - who doesn't want a sultry makeover?!
A: YES! We encourage you bringing your best friend with you. It can help calm your nerves and give you the reassurance you need. We only ask that the friend does not interfere with the shoot (directing you, posing you, running in to fix something before every shot.) We'll handle all those things that need to be done. Having a friend for moral support is great and all, so why not book your sessions back-to-back so you can both enjoy the experience together?!

Absolutely no significant other is allowed in the shooting room. This is a firm policy.
A: A reveal is when you get to see your final edited photos! We will then work together in choosing your favorite images to commemorate your experience and begin designing your heirloom products. This is scheduled before you leave on the day of your shoot and is about 2 weeks after your session.
A: Our clients LOVE our quick turnaround time, which is only about 4 weeks if everything is paid in full. If you decide on a payment plan during your reveal, the final products are delivered about 2-3 weeks once the final payment is received.
A: Fly us to CA? Yes, please! WE LOVE TRAVELING. We've had many women travel to our studio from across the country, but we also enjoy traveling to different cities, both nationally and internationally.

Join our VIP facebook where we will always post when and where we're traveling so you'll know when we're in your area available to shoot!

If you're bringing us to you, you'll have to cover flight, 2 night stay, and any studio rental fees.
A: We currently offer digital files with our collections! These full-res photos come on a custom flash drive and are paired with a print release allowing you to print them wherever and whenever.

If you choose not to purchase full-res digital files with your order - don't worry! Every image ordered includes the matching social media (low-res) digital file for online sharing if you're feeling brave and liberated.
A: Not unless you choose to sign a model release form. We pride ourselves on privacy, discretion, and confidentiality and will not use your photos on our website, social media platforms, or any other promotional materials without your written consent.
A: Once you book a session, we send you a welcome email and preparation guide which will walk you through everything you need to know! But for starters we recommend getting plenty of rest, increasing your water intake, and coming in with a great attitude. Please do not fast or try to lose water weight - we promise our camera does not add ten pounds contrary to what you may hear <3
