CLIENT LOVE NOTES

LOVE NOTES

"Doing a boudoir shoot with Emilee was by far the most empowering experience I’ve had as a woman in a very long time.

I am by nature a very conservative person & I feel as if Emilee & Vivid Elegance respected my body & views. Emilee managed my anxiety with care & compassion. She made me not only look beautiful in my photos by she made me feel beautiful as well. 


I initially did this shoot during a negative time of my life and the boost of confidence & power it gave me, helped me through a difficult time. I order several pictures! And the best part is they aren’t for any person, no husband, boyfriend or significant other. They are for me! All powerful, beautiful & inspiring..Emilee & vivid Elegance reminded me of the person I am. With only a photograph.

 

Now when I feel my spirit slipping, I’ll look at me & remember how power I am! Thank You Emilee & Vivid Elegance!

My #WCW is me myself and I, who else would it be?!

As someone who has struggled so hard over this last year or so trying to rediscover my self love, I did something that terrified me from the second I booked this shoot.

 

I thought I would hate every single picture and walk out of there in tears. But, I was pleasantly surprised and after seeing the rough drafts couldn't even decide which ones to order because I loved most of them!

 

I look back on these pictures and see a kick ass woman who yes, at times still struggles trying to rebuild that self confidence, but also, isn't going to settle for anything less than she deserves..."

FAQs
  • Where are you located?
    My home studio is located in Edgewater, Florida which is about 20 minutes south of Daytona Beach. All sessions outside of boudoir sessions will be conducted at a location of your choosing, and travel within 20 miles of zip code 32141 is included with your session fee.
  • What services do you offer?
    I primarily specialize in boudoir photography, but really, I have a love for women's portraiture in general. Please the The Experience page for more information on other services available at Vivid Elegance. I do not offer wedding or newborn photography.
  • Is hair and makeup included?
    Yes! Professional hair styling and makeup application with faux eyelashes is included with every session. I do like to give a little disclaimer that makeup for photography is usually much more dramatic than what you may be used to for everyday wear. Cameras are basically a makeup wipe and flatten makeup looks, so don't be alarmed if your makeup looks heavier in person.
  • But what should I wear?!
    I know this is usually the most daunting question, but I'm here to help! Depending on the type of session, you may want a more professional look, or maybe something more casual or perhaps super glamorous! No matter what you wardrobe needs are, I'll help you find the perfect look for your images. Wardrobe assistance via video chat is included with every session so if you're having trouble, or just have ideas and need an extra pair of eyes to help you mix and match, I'm a zoom call away!
  • Are you going to post my images publicly?
    Not unless you want me to! I never post images of anyone without their written permission. Your privacy is paramount to me, and you always have the final say in whether or not your images are displayed online or elsewhere.
  • Do you photograph couples?
    Yes! Couples are welcome! I would love to help you celebrate your love story! From boudoir to engagement announcements, or even photos for a special occasion or holiday, I got you covered. Please be aware that I do not photograph erotic photography or pornographic images. Vivid Elegance is an LGBTQIA+ ally studio!
  • When should I schedule my session for?
    Great question! I'm typically booked 2-3 months out, so you should contact me ASAP to ensure you will get your desired date. If you have a special occasion that you will need your order, you should schedule your session for a minimum of 6 weeks in advance of that date. Pre-session payment plans can be arranged for up to 6 months out.
  • I could never look like one of these models!
    ​YES. YOU. CAN. Because not one of the women I've photographed is a professional model! They're everyday women with scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and cellulite, just like you! And that's a beautiful thing! They're mothers, wives, career women, even grandmas! Don't let societal standards of beauty stand in the way of loving and celebrating yourself!
  • Where will my session take place?
    Boudoir sessions take place in my home studio in Edgewater, Florida. Don't worry! It's a girls-only day, and I have some gorgeous sets that we will go through during your session. Including a traditional boudoir bedroom set, luxury purple velvet, tufted couches, and a stunning brick fireplace with candles!
  • Is hair and makeup included?
    Yes! Professional hair styling and makeup application with faux eyelashes are included with every session. I do like to give a little disclaimer that makeup for photography is usually much more dramatic than what you may be used to for everyday wear. Cameras act like a makeup wipe and flatten makeup looks on camera, so don't be alarmed if your makeup looks heavier in person.
  • Do you photograph couples?
    Yes! Couples are welcome! I would love to help you celebrate your love story! Please be aware that I do not photograph erotic photography or pornographic images. Vivid Elegance is an LGBTQIA+ ally studio!
  • But what should I wear?!
    A typical boudoir wardrobe mostly consists of lingerie, however, lingerie is not a requirement! When you book your session or join the Vivid Elegance email list, you will receive a complimentary lingerie guide that also includes non-lingerie ideas and a list of places to shop. I also provide my clients with a client closet with different lingerie options. I have sizes from Small to 4X. All you really need to bring is a handful of black or nude thongs and arrive with your nails done, a clean face, and clean, DRY hair! Wardrobe assistance via video chat is included with every session so if you're having trouble, or just have ideas and need an extra pair of eyes to help you mix and match, I'm a zoom call away!
  • Can I bring props to my session?
    I love capturing the essence of my clients in their photoshoots! To make your pictures extra special, I suggest bringing sentimental items that are close to your heart. Here's a quick list for inspiration: Your partner's favorite shirt (button-down, hoodie, band/nerd t-shirt, uniform, or sports jersey) Bridal veil, shoes & garter Hobby items: cowgirl hat & boots, your favorite hardcover book, musical instrument, etc. Heirloom jewelry: engagement ring, grandmother's pearls, etc. These little things will add a personal touch to your photos and keep them timeless. Just one thing to note - to keep things safe, classic, and friendly, I don't allow adult toys, novelty costumes, live animals, or weapons of any kind during the session.
  • I'm super nervous! Can I bring a friend with me?
    Yes! You may bring with you 1 friend who is over the age of eighteen with you to cheer you on during your session! Please make sure this person is your biggest cheerleader! Unless you are doing a couple's session, I don't allow partners to be present until the image reveal portion since their presence can make you more nervous and hinder your experience. They're welcome to drop you off and help you get settled! Please be aware that no animals (aside from registered service animals) and no persons under the age of eighteen are allowed in the studio at any time. No exceptions.
  • Is there an age limit on boudoir sessions?
    No! I've photographed women of all ages. Please don't let your age deter you from a wonderful experience that you 100% deserve to enjoy to the fullest! However, there is an age minimum. I will not photograph boudoir for any client under the age of 18. Please bring your official state ID or driver's license to verify your age.
  • What kind of products do you offer?
    Vivid Elegance proudly offers custom, heirloom-quality albums, folio boxes, digital files, and wall art. All of our albums are customizable and imported from Europe. Customization options include luxury cover materials, page gilding, and more! With proper care, your fine art products will last for generations to come. For more information on our products and collections, please visit the investment page.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Yes! Pre-session payment plans are available and are interest free! Please visit the payment options page to learn more.
  • When will I receive my order?
    Because most products are imported, the typical turnaround time is 5-6 weeks from your session date. PLEASE NOTE: It is highly recommended that you schedule your session for a minimum of 6 weeks in advance of any special dates (wedding, anniversary, birthday, etc.) and an 8-week minimum is recommended for holidays (Christmas and Valentine's Day)
  • How do I know if my pet is ready for an "End of Life" session?
    If your pet has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or is nearing the end of their life expectancy, it may be a good time to schedule a session. You can always ask your veterinarian as well if you're unsure.
  • Do you come to me or do I have to bring my pet to you?
    I come to you. Whether you prefer to have the session done in your home, or at your pet's favorite park, it is entirely up to you (and the weather of course). I recommend having the session wherever they are most comfortable and relaxed.
  • Is there a fee for this service?
    I only charge a $25 fee, all of which is donated to help shelter animals in Florida. Travel within 20 miles of zip code 32141 is included. A small travel fee is charged for sessions outside of that radius.
  • My pet isn't sick, they're just old. Should I still schedule a session?
    If your pet is nearing the end of their life expectancy (or has outlived it entirely), then yes, I would be happy to accommodate you. Average Pet Lifespans:
  • I'm putting my pet down tomorrow. Can you photograph them today?
    Unfortunately, I do need at least a week's notice to prepare to give all of my clients the same level of care and attention.
