EDITORIAL & FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY



THIS IS IT. EVERYTHING ELSE LEADS UP TO THIS MOMENT.




This means we take our time with each individual; crafting an experience from the start in hopes to carry those memories through generations to come. As artists, we believe in preserving your images + showcasing the art outside of a hard-drive somewhere to never be seen again. We work very hard to tailor a custom + quality experience that is transformative + revitalizing.


You deserve the confidence that your memories will unfold timelessly and historically, just as you'd always imagined, which makes investing in high quality imagery the best investment you'll make. 


But this doesn't happen overnight. Your vision took a lifetime to create, therefore we take our time connecting, collaborating, creating and crafting your carefully curated memories.

So, if you value quality over quantity, printing over stowing away your memories on a thumb drive, you've come to the right place.

All corresponding digital images will be included with the purchase of your products.

You invest in us, we invest in you.

Testimonials
When I reached out to Kortney about a boudoir session, I did not what it would do for me mentally. I thought, "Hey if I like the pictures, I may feel attractive again." However, my experience was so much more than that. Kortney + Patience really helped me find my inner beauty and encouraged me not to be ashamed of my body. They gave me a sense of power I didn't realize was missing. These women make you feel strong, fearless, resilient AND sexy... I could've walked out of there in my birthday suit!
— Tiffany
My experience with KBP was better than I could've ever imagined and wished for. I was super nervous going into this shoot as it was wayyy out of my comfort zone. As soon as I arrived I was welcomed and immediately felt I guess you could say, safe. I immediately knew I had chosen the right team for this. My main reason was to gift my fiancé, but leaving I was happy I booked for myself. I left gelling so much more confident in myself and loving my body image more than I ever thought I could.
— Jadyn
I've struggled with my body image my whole life; it got even worse after having my son. I hated my body and the way I looked. I decided to book a session with Kortney, not only for myself, but for my fiancé also! Let me tell you, after this shoot I saw myself in a whole different perspective. I've started to love my body + the way I look. My stretch marks, my scars, my chest. I look at these pictures all the time and remind myself I am gorgeous! I loved my experience so much, I've already booked another!

FAQ

Will my photos be posted on the internet?

Not unless you say it’s ok! Every client I feature on my blog has given me written permission to post her images. If you aren’t comfortable with any images being shared, that is completely fine, just let me know! We also offer a VIP group as an alternative measure to publicly sharing if you choose. You decide!

I have cellulite/stretch marks/acne. Can you get rid of that?

In most cases, yes*. Removal of acne, acne scarring, stretch marks, and cellulite is part of the retouching process. Additional retouching can be discussed at an additional fee. What I won’t do is drastically change your body shape or face, I want your images to look like you. If there is something you feel self-conscious about, we can use poses and lighting to emphasize your favorite features instead.

I don't look like the girls on your website, can I still book a session?

Of course! I feel bad that people even ask this question! Since picking up a camera in 2015, I have photographed a diverse amount of shapes, sizes, ethnicities and ages (I’ve had many clients well into their 60s!). Not everyone is comfortable with their photos being shared online, so unfortunately I’m not able to show all of my work. What I can promise is that I will create images to flatter YOU and best show your personality. I believe every woman is beautiful and it’s my job to show you just how gorgeous you are.

Do I have to wear lingerie?

Definitely not! There are a ton of outfit ideas other than lacy little things! Once booked, you receive our Prep Guide giving you everything from ideas on what to wear to where to buy. You barely have to lift a finger.

is hair and makeup included?

Hair and makeup is included in all of our boudoir shoots! I think it’s really important for you to feel pampered, and having your hair and makeup done is a great way to do that! Our in-house HMUA, Patience, will take care of you! She's been part of the team for quite some time now and not only is her work exceptional, it makes a huge difference in the end result of your images. Even a ’no-makeup’ look is best achieved with a professional! As you send ideas to me, I'm keeping her in the loop. Some opt for a consult where she will discuss the look you’d like to achieve or advise you if you aren’t sure what to ask for. But most, solely trust her expertise.

Do you have payment plans?

We do - both pre and post session payment plans and you customize the plan! There is a booking retainer to book your shoot, and the balance is due 2 weeks before the session date! Most of our clients take advantage of this option.

Can I bring my partner or a friend to my shoot?

Generally I prefer to work one on one with my clients, simply because sometimes an ‘audience’ can make you feel more self conscious and serve as a distraction from the process. Of course, I have made some exceptions, so let's chat.

I want you to be able to feel relaxed and fully present for the shoot; this is a big factor in creating incredible images that you’ll cherish forever. If you absolutely must bring moral support, they are welcome to attend the makeup/hair portion of your session, then leave to have lunch or go shopping while we do the photo shoot.

How far in advance should I book?

As soon as possible. Our Boudoir Sessions are highly limited as I prefer to localize my attention to each client. Ask us for a list of available dates.

Where do the shoots take place?

Depending on the Collection you choose, usually either my studio in Joplin or a private Victorian Suite in Joplin. All sessions are done by appointment only, I am not able to accommodate walk-ins.

In other cities, I shoot in a luxury hotel suite or other suitable space. Exact location will be confirmed and sent to you prior to your shoot.

where should I buy my outfits?

Once booked, you will receive a Prep Guide that directs you not only on what to wear, but where to buy. It depends on personality and the style of your shoot. Stumped? Just give me a shout. We will also go over ideas at your wardrobe consult. If you are looking for something specific that you can’t find, let me know and I might know just where to get it!

What type of print products do you have?

We offer a variety of albums and luxury presentation boxes with prints in them and endless wall art! I absolutely love the feel of picking up a physical print, it’s so surreal to see yourself like that!
”I flip through them regularly, myself, every chance I get. I think I look at them more than he does. It’s a daily reminder that my self-image has completely changed after this experience.” –Justice

do you offer digitals?

Yes. All of our Print Collections include digital images. These digital images come in a password-protected, secure online gallery, for you to download and share!

I'm freaking out! How do I calm my nerves?

Take if from me, nerves are all part of the experience! I always say that it would probably be weird if you WEREN’T nervous. I was. Nervous is ok, as long as you trust the process. The nervousness in the beginning of your shoot make your moment of “WOW” seeing your photos for the first time so much better!

how many outfits should I bring?

3-5 outfits is standard. I am not too picky about this, as long as we're realistic in the amount of time and understand wardrobe changes can effect the amount of active shoot time. I always say to bring more if you can’t decide and I will help you direct you and narrow down if need be!

What else should I know?

I pride myself on not only my photographic skill, but my ability to make my clients feel welcome, seen, safe, comfortable and beautiful. Photo shoots are available to women aged 18 and over (you may be asked to provide ID).

I’m ready to book a shoot, what’s next?

Fill out my 'connect', page and I will send you package options and add ons. Once we pick a date I will send you a booking proposal and contract. The contract must be signed and a non-refundable retainer is due to reserve your shoot day/time. The remaining balance is due 1 week before the day of your shoot, and payment can be made with credit card through my online booking system. Payment plans are available if you need a bit of flexibility in order to afford the package you really want to book.
