Reveal Session

Once your session is complete, Shannon will send you for a 1.5 hr lunch where you can decompress and relax while Shannon goes through your images! During this time Shannon will 400-500 images and meticulously narrow them down to around 45. She will soft proof them all and fully edit 2 images for you to see what the finished image looks like. Once complete she will welcome you back into the studio setting to review all of the images and to walk you through how to view your images 1 by 1. We then go through the images with the sole purpose of giving yourself permission to love yourself! How powerful! Women are often shocked that they love so many images are feel many different emotions (all emotions are good emotions and however you react is okay).

Professional Makeup & Hair Services

Professional Makeup Artist: DID YOU KNOW that makeup for sessions is very different than every day makeup application??? Through editing we lose 30% of the makeup applied. (think stage performers, they must cake makeup on so the people in the back can see it, this is virtually the same effect).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Due to this, makeup is bolder than everyday. The makeup artist will enhance features you already posses and also diminish temporary things like pimples. The work of the Makeup Artists also include things like evening your skin tone or taking our redness, which helps with my editing of your images. Most women do not realize all that goes into their services and think that if they know how to apply makeup on themselves every day that it will be the same. In truth, these women have had schooling and know exactly what you the client and I need applied so that you look your absolute best for your shoot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Another key factor to consider is: It also allows for pampering and settling those nerves while we chat during that time. You are given coffee or tea, get settled into the environment, nerves lessen, I get to know more about you & truly connect before starting your photoshoot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don't get the add-on service of the makeup & hair, you arrive and we get ready for into the shoot, which means no time to settle or ease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I strongly recommend the services of makeup & hair to all my clients.
The cost for Leanne, her talent, high quality makeup and luxury real mink lashes is $140, payable to artist day of your session.

Words from Leanne about the work we do:
Shannon Smith is a women with so much passion. Her soul and heart is the kindest I’ve ever known. Every single client who walks into the studio is greeted with so much positivity and love. She respects who they are and understands the insecurities that come with a boudoir session and the vulnerability. The journey for most of these women are incredibly deep and Shannon and myself give them the absolute respect and confidence they deserve. Shannon has created a Women’s empowerment group and with her large following she inspires, motivates, instills self worth, dignity and most importantly SELF LOVE I am blessed to be apart of this work, the clients journey, the laughter that fills the room and the tears that are shared in a comfortable safe place for these women to express themselves regardless of SIZE, SHAPE, COLOUR and PERSONAL STRUGGLES. I truly hope these women know that as much as they feel we give to them, they give so much back to us I truly admire each and everyone of these beautiful unique women and they touch my heart in a way that is indescribable ... they make me a better person and teach me so much about my own insecurities and self worth. So thank you to all who my makeup brushes have graced their skin and all the gorgeous photos that reflect who they are as strong confident women in a world that isn’t so kind at times. This is a journey about LOVING YOURSELF regardless of what anyone else thinks .... it’s empowering and these women come out of this experience with so much more than they walked in with.
Xoxoxo Don’t ever underestimate the strength of a women ... we are warriors and a tribe that is a force to be reckoned with
