Do I have to have my hair and makeup professionally done?
Having your hair and makeup done by a professional is vital to a successful boudoir shoot, just like it is for models on magazine fashion shoots. You can have this service done by one of our stylists or by your stylist before arriving at the studio.
My stylists charge $120 for hair and makeup. If you choose to work with your own hair and makeup stylist, we give a $60 credit toward any images you purchase (please bring your receipt if you have it done by an outside professional).
Plus, my stylists are fabulous women who will put you at ease and provide an unforgettable experience. Learn more about my hair and makeup stylist team.
Is your name really Karen French?
Yes (I got lucky with that one since I specialize in boudoir!) Photography has been my life for 18 years. I’m the most published wedding photographer in the country, and “This is LA!” featured my boudoir studio! Learn more about me.
Are men allowed in your studio?
It’s important that the studio be a safe space for everyone. Our clients have shared that our women-only environment helped them feel comfortable, free, and more relaxed.
