Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do to book my session?
Reach out to me as soon as you decide to invest in your very own boudoir experience. I would love to get to know you before your session! Consultations are available to you at no charge. I can meet in person, show you examples of your work, tour the studio and discuss any questions you may have. I can also chat over the phone if you prefer.
Where will my shoot take place?
Your session will take place at our gorgeous 1500 sq ft studio. It is located conveniently in the Firewheel Town Center Mall area in Garland, TX! Modern furniture with vibrant and neutral tones will give your boudoir portraits a sexy, but classy feel. I have 5 studio sets to choose from!

Can I purchase more images?
Absolutely! After your shoot, you'll be treated to a personal, same day, photo viewing session to review your photos. At that time, you'll be guided through our product packages to select the products that fit your dreams.
I'm not sure if I want to order yet, can I decide when I see my photos?
Of course. I will treat you to a one-on-one in person viewing session. I can make recommendations based on your goals and photo preferences. However, pre-orders do include FREE bonuses.
I am not a model, and have never done this. Is that a problem?
Every girl that has entered my studio has said this exact phrase. I will gently guide you through the entire process. You do not have to have modeling experience, but you will leave my studio feeling like a supermodel! Move over Tyra Banks!
I have curves. Am I a good candidate for a boudoir session?
Absolutely! Boudoir Photography is for everyone. I specialize in posing women of all shapes and sizes. I, myself, am a plus size woman. I know all the tips and tricks to make you look and feel sexy!
I'm nervous and scared and have no idea how to be sexy! What do I do?
I will walk you through how to unleash your inner sexy. I will help you have fun and capture all your best features.
Do I bring my own outfits?
Included in your session fee, you gain access to our boudie-wear closet. I have a variety of clothing choices you can choose from sizes small to 5x. I also offer whole sized high heels from size 5-11 and I offer body jewelry, and necklaces to add that something extra to any outfit.
If you would like to bring in your own wardrobe instead please do. I like to start off with an oversized shirt (Either yours or your significant other’s.) I recommend bringing in a bra and panty set in black and nude with thigh high stockings, garter belt and heels. I have plenty of other ideas I can recommend, however, those are those basics needed for a shoot.
Can I have a friend come with me?
A luxury boudoir session is a day just for you. I want to pamper you. I don’t want you to have to worry about anyone else that day. If you really would like someone to attend your session with you, they are Welcome as long as they are over 18 years old, remain positive throughout the entire experience (no negativity will be tolerated), and they do not disrupt the photographer’s work-flow.
Do you do couple shots?
While, I specialize in women’s’ portraiture, I do offer a limited number of couples sessions each year. Contact me for more information.
Is it okay to tan before my shoot?
Please do NOT tan before your shoot. No tanning should be done within 30 days of your shoot. Tanning affects the quality of the images. It creates a VERY orange tone to your skin and odd markings such as orange palms, orange heels, and most of all unappealing tan lines. Tanning products can also rub off on clothing and furniture. Retouching tan lines is a premium service not included in the base price of the session / prints.
I need ideas! Can you help?
I sure can! I am here to help. Once your session is booked, I can discuss your desires with you and make recommendations on what attire will fit your needs make you feel the most confident.
How long will my shoot last?
The entire luxury boudoir experience lasts 4-6 hours, from start to finish. You will come in for hair and make-up, then we will style you. Next, your shoot begins. Your actual shoot will last 1-1.5 hours and you will be able to utilize as many outfit changes and sets as you would like. After your shoot, you will go grab a bite to eat or a cup of coffee while I prepare your images for viewing. We offer same day viewing sessions so you don’t have to wait to see your transformation! Instant gratification!
What time do you typically book shoots?
Nevesta books sessions Friday - Sunday. We begin our sessions at 10 PM. We are open Monday through Thursdays for consultations 1 pm - 7 pm.
Do you have weekend availability?
Yes, I currently have session openings on Saturdays and Sundays. Stay tune to updates of weekend availability by subscribing our VIP Facebook Group Boudie Bells. Click HERE.
Do you offer hair/makeup service?
Absolutely! Having your hair and makeup done is crucial to the premium boudoir experience offered by Nevesta. Our complimentary In-house hair and makeup artist is included in your session package. We have a trained professional available to style your natual hair and knows what makeup will amplify your beautiful features. While you experience this transformation I will chat with you and make you comfortable as you relax with a cold beverage.
Why do I have to wear makeup so heavy?
Boudoir makeup should always be heavier than what you would normally wear because the camera decreases the amount of makeup on film. Therefore, if you apply heavier makeup it will show up just right in camera.
Who will my photographer be?
Your photographer will be Jana Cooper. As professional photographer for 20 years, Jana can guarantee a wonderful and luxurious boudoir experience. She wants you to leave your cares at the door and just have fun. Celebrate you!
Processing & Finished Product
What is the turn around time for images and albums?
You view your proofs the same day as your session.
The turnaround time for Matted Pearly Prints is only 1-2 weeks as they are produced locally. Albums, Canvases and Metal prints are produced with the best and most luxurious materials available and shipped from Italy. Please allow 6-8 weeks for these items to arrive.
I have problem areas. Will you photoshop them?
We all have areas that we are not 100% in love with. My goal here at Nevesta is to spread body positivity and help every woman love herself the way that she is, right now. I do touch-up basic imperfections to showcase your natural beauty.
Will my photos be on the internet? How will you protect my privacy?
I are committed to giving you the best experience possible and I value your safety in this intimate affair. I understand that boudoir photography produces intimate images and I would never upload your images publicly without your consent. All images you see online are images that our clients have humbly allowed me to share by signing a model release form. If you give me permission, I'd LOVE to share them so other women can understand what the boudoir photography is, feel as confident as you do, and see the transformation that takes their beauty to another level.
What is your cancellation policy?
When you book your experience, I reserve your chosen date for you and you alone to make your experience one-of-a-kind, as a result your session fee is non-refundable.
