I’m always on the hunt for new lingerie. If you own or know of a local place where you have found incredible, unique lingerie, I’d love to hear about it! Bonus points if it’s located in North County! Please EMAIL ME with the store details. I do have a client lingerie closet that is available to booked clients, but it shouldn’t be solely relied upon. Therefore bringing in your own wardrobe is required. Please try on the pieces you purchase before purchasing if possible, and definitely before coming in for your session. If you purchase lingerie online, please give yourself enough time to try on and return items if necessary. A good trick to this is to order pieces in 2 different sizes and then return the one that doesn’t fit. I’m always a short text away, while you’re out shopping as well, so I can serve as your virtual shopping mate to help you with any questions or decisions you may have. In addition, it doesn’t hurt to purchase 1 or 2 extra items and bring them in for your session. I will lay everything out and we can go through it together to choose your final wardrobe pieces so you have a cohesive and rockin’ style to your session!
