It will go over what it takes to be successful in this market and if this genre is right for you. The speaker will share her personal journey into this style and why she has chosen it. She will then go over how she does it; from lead generation. to booking clients, to client consultation, to her version of the boudoir experience, her set design process, posing and flattering your subject, special editing techniques, sales presentation, and her pricing strategy.
