Want more specifics about pricing and product pricing? Please call [redacted]. As a rule we do not share our product pricing in writing. In an effort to protect ourselves from poaching photographers posing as potential clients (there's a tongue-twister for ya'), we only discuss product pricing over the phone. Once you book your session, a price list will be provided to you. We thank you for your understanding!

We know that budgets are tight in our current economical climate so we are here to help you facilitate this wonderful experience for yourself. We offer interest free and service fee FREE payment plans on both sessions and product. No credit check and no hidden fees of any kind. We take all major credit cards.

Rachel Stephens Photography for Women
We guess boudoir photography isn't known for its verisimilitude, and there's nothing wrong with wanting a retouched photo of yourself if that's your thing — but at the same time, the waist-whittling animations at Stephens's site are a little disturbing. As our reader comments, "You, too, can be just like the woman on the cover of Vogue." Just make sure you don't come out looking like this lady.
