Q: WERE IS THE STUDIO AT?
A: Our sessions take place at the photographer’s home studio in Groveland, Florida. Groveland is in South Lake County next to Clermont. We are approximately 45 minutes from most Orlando areas, about 1 hour from most North Orlando (Seminole County), and about 1½ hours from Tampa.
Q: WHO TAKES THE PHOTOS?
A: Mya photographs female-only sessions. Both Hector and Mya photograph together couples sessions.
Q: CAN I HAVE “SOME” PHOTOS WITH MY HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND/WIFE?
A: No. Only the lady getting photographed can be present during her session and photo selections. If you want to take photos with your significant other, then you may schedule a couple’s session instead. A couples’ session is different from a female-only experience. It’s about capturing the bonding and interaction between two people. It’s not a sexual encounter, therefore, if you are seeking a sexual adventure, a couple’s session is not a right fit for you. A phone consultation/interview is required before booking a couple’s session, so we can can go over the experience and make sure you understand the process. Please be advised that both Hector and Mya will be present during couple’s sessions. Mya doesn’t photographs couples on her own to ensure everyone’s comfort level. Therefore, you both need to be comfortable with a female AND a male photographer. Finally, couple’s session fee is different. Please contact us for details.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS THE DAY OF MY SESSION?
A: When you come in for your session, you'll have a short consultation with Mya where we’ll she will go over your wardrobe, and talk about your session, expectations, and concerns. After your consultation, you will spend the next hour or so sitting on the makeup chair, relaxing, and getting ready for your shoot! After the makeover the fun beings. You do NOT need to worry about posing. That’s Mya’s job! You’ll be guided from head to toes, facial expressions, and more. Warning: it’s a workout! When your session ends, you will head out to lunch while she downloads your photos and get them ready for your reveal. You’ll come back about an hour later to view all your photos and make your selections.
Q: HOW LONG DOES EVERYTHING TAKES?
A: In addition to your session time (read your package for session time details), the entire experience could take an additional four hours when you add the initial consultation, your makeover, a s 45-minute lunch break while we take after the session is over to download the photos, and approximately 45 minutes viewing and selecting your photos. You can expect to be here for approximately 5½ hours total. We suggest you take the day off (and make after-school arrangements if you have children) to fully enjoy your experience.
Q: DO YOU PROVIDE/CAN I BRING PROPS?
A: No props! We don’t shoot with props. It’s not our style. Our personal believe is that they are dated (Hello 80’s!). Our focus is on YOU. It’s all about you baby!
Q: WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH YOUR EDITING?
A: We remove temporary skin blemishes likes pimples and bruises and do a light skin enhancement technique that will minimize the appearance of pores, stretch marks and such. Extensive editing including tan lines and skin discoloration is NOT included with standard editing. We will NOT change your body shape or your size. Mya’s expertise and years of experience posing woman and with proper fitted wardrobe we guarantee you’ll look your best and slay your shoot!

A: Nope. We hope that you book a session with us because you like OUR work and artistic vision instead of copying another photographer’s work. When you book a session with an experienced photographer, she/he already has a specific posing flow, based on the location and the photographer’s style and artistic vision.

A: You will receive a detailed confirmation email after you make your appointment with ALL those details.

A: We suggest that you come in at least two months before your deadline if possible.

welcome to our place!
Our sessions are held in our home in Groveland, Florida. All the photos you see throughout our website were taken in our home. After leasing a commercial location for a few years, we find that our home gives our clients the intimacy, privacy, and coziness they seek for this unique experience. It also gives us the flexibility to create multiple shooting areas and take advantage of the beautiful natural light available throughout our place.

WHAT'S HOLDING YOU BACK?
Most of our clients have similar concerns when considering a boudoir session:
#1: MY BODY IS NOT PERFECT
A: Nobody is perfect. Nobody. Even the women who you might think have the perfect body do not feel that way about themselves. Do you think that the women you see in magazines and television look that way in person? It’s a combination of wardrobe, lighting (this is true especially in movies), posing, and editing. These are the skills and knowledge we've acquired after years of experience photographing women. You ARE beautiful just the way you are and we are here to showcase your unique beauty!
#2: I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT
A: Are you active in the path of losing weight? If you are, congratulations! If you are not, do you want to postpone your happiness for a few extra pounds. That's not how life is supposed to be. We age, we gain weight, our beauty transforms with time and we need to embrace our changing beauty. If you wait until you are “ready”, you might end up waiting forever.
#3: I'M NOT A LINGERIE TYPE OF GAL
A: A lot of our clients are not crazy for lingerie! You don't need to pose in lingerie if is not your thing. There are many options for your looks. T-shirts and tank tops can be sexy too! This is YOUR shoot and you should pose on what you feel comfortable with. We are here to help you and guide you all the way.
#4: I POSE TERRIBLE IN PHOTOS
A: You don't need to worry about that. That's our job. To coach you from your head down to toes. From facial expressions to what to do with your hands, we’ll have you look your best.
#5: I DON'T WANT MY PHOTOS OUT THERE
A: They won't be. The ladies you see on our website gave us written permission to use their photos. Most of our clients don't, and that's fine with us. Everything is handled with extreme care to protect your privacy as much as we can.
JOIN MY TRIBE!
Unlike other photography services, a boudoir session is an intimate experience. I work with many clients who followed my work for years before they booked their session. Before you come in for your session, I think it’s very important that you get to know me and become familiar with the process, and understand what to expect and how everything works. Reading what other clients have to say about their experience is also helpful. The best place to do this is in my private, ladies-only, Facebook group. Join now to get started!
