The Big Reveal
About 2 weeks after your shoot we'll meet up again, usually at a Starbucks or another coffee shop, and that's when you get to see your gorgeous images for the first time! Your ordering appointment is the most exciting moment for me and I absolutely live for seeing women's expressions the moment they see their photos for the first time. My passion is showing women how I see them and there are often hugs and tears and lots of emotion. You'll decide which photos you just absolutely have to have (most women can't choose and must have them all!) and which beautiful album suits you perfectly! It takes about 2 weeks to get our completely custom-designed and entirely hand-crafted books from the design company, so plan ahead if you have a specific date in mind! The whole process, from start to finish, takes about 4 weeks.
A Peek Behind-The-Scenes
Curious what a shoot looks like behind-the-scenes? Here's a quick peek at Danni's shoot with us!
I am proud to offer a completely customized, unique experience here in Connecticut! I've designed my sessions to be intimate, empowering, and artistic, while allowing each of my clients a full day in the studio with only one session per day. My studio has numerous boudoir sets as well as outdoor shooting areas and a gorgeous natural-light barn, if you'd like to use it! It's even got 30 wooded acres and its own herd of horses!
When you arrive on our road you'll see where the name "Lost Highway" comes from and the gorgeous, tranquil, untouched woodland is something unique to our beautiful corner of Connecticut. Oftentimes, the horses will be waiting at the fence to greet incoming guests and once you reach the top of the stairs, you'll be amazed by what we think of as our own little fairytale loft space. It's certainly not what anyone expects to see on a horse farm and we are so proud of our little hideaway! Complete with crystal chandeliers, antique furniture and a gorgeous rhinestone studded bed set, it's a glamorous little space perfect for creating elegant, unique, timeless boudoir images without the risk of sacrificing your privacy like storefront studios in strip malls.
Obviously, not everyone wants to shoot outdoors, but if you are adventurous and desire a one-of-a-kind experience, we have 30+ private acres to offer! Between the pond, forest and streams running though the property, the options are endless! And, of course, our natural light barn is incredibly popular, especially during the warmer months!

The session fee is $400 and that is due as a retainer when you book your appointment. A boudoir shoot with me includes a private studio photo shoot, access to all of my props and accessories and full pose and expression coaching, as well as full retouching of your proofs and an in-person ordering session.
Photos are not included in the session fee and are available to purchase a la carte your ordering appointment, which usually takes place 10-14 days after your shoot. My average client invests $2300-$2600 in total, between their shoot and their products but there are options on both sides of that range!
