We have outfits to fit almost every size. Our items range from size 0 to 3X. In addition please bring at least one of your own outs and a nude or black plain bra and thong to wear under any items from our wardobe. You can view our wardrobe by clickly The Wardrobe under info on the menu bar. Don't forget about your feet (heels, cowboys boots, etc) and jewelry & accessories (stockings, personal props, tall socks, etc).
This applies to all of our sessions. You may bring your own clothing or go "shopping" in our closet!

We will provide suspenders. Babies in a solid white diaper.
Where will my session take place?
The Magnolia House Studio is a rustic secluded photography studio It is comfortably and tastefully decorated. If you choose your session may also be held outdoors (weather permitting) at one of our exclusive locations.
Do I really need my hair and makeup professionally done? When you book with Shawn Sawyer Photography I offer an exceptionally unique experience for your session. I want you to walk away from our time together feeling truly beautiful, inside and out. It will set the tone for your session and give you time to sit and relax and decompress before our session. That being said, no you do not have to get it done however it is included in your session fee and cannot be discounted.
Do you offer discounts?
I do! Dont forget to ask about special discounts and payment plans!
Will my boudoir session be private?
Of course! I will at times have a female assistant on site, but yes 100% private - unless you decide you want to venture our to one of our exclusive nearby locations.
I dont want others to see my photos, will you share them online?
While I may want to shout about how beautiful you are...you may want to keep our time together private. I understand and respect that. It's actually the hardest part of my job, not getting to share your images with others. While many of my clients dont mind sharing their photographs, some would rather remain anonymous. We will discuss this before and after your session, if you agree to share some I will endevour to respect your identityy. Rest assured your privacy will come first.
Will you retouch my images.
Yes, retouching is included in every session. I will take my time enhancing each photo I choose to deliver. I will remove most scars, acne, stretchmarks, cellulite, etc as you request. If you have a more extensive request please address it at our session. However I do not completely reshape your body in photoshop. Instead I work with you to find the most flattering poses for your body type to ensure that extensive editing is not required.
How long before I see my images?
Most clients are contacted to set up their in person viewing session within 10-15 days of your session. You will then have an opportunity to place an order. All products ordered generally arrive within 7-14 business days. Some are handcrafted and can take up to 4-6 weeks to arrive. I do try to offer a "sneak peek" from your session within 72 hours!
