I’m Michelle Franzetti.
I am a wackadoo photographer based in Kentucky. I am the queen of Pinterest fails and goofy faces. I love my tiny yellow house, my fiancé Nick, and our zoo which consists of two dogs and a sassy cat. You’re here because helping women feel like rockstars is what I do best!
I had my first boudoir shoot in 2016. I watched women come in to the room apologizing for their stretch marks or cellulite and leave with a giant smile on their face and this look of pure confidence. I have been hooked ever since.
If there is one thing I wish everyone knew, it is that YOU DESERVE THIS.
But I am awkward AF in front of a camera!!
Wooooooo girl, I feel you!! I am actually a pretty awkward human myself when it comes to being in front of the camera. Good news is that posing is 100% my job. I will place everything from your the top of your head to the tips of your toes. I will tell you where to look and tell dorky jokes to get a really big smile!
This is one of the reasons I LOVE that the first hour you are with me, it is hair and makeup time. It gives you a chance to relax instead of walking in the door and immediately dropping your drawers. Being nervous is totally normal, but you are going to feel damn good by the end of it!
I am not a model.
That works out well because none of the women you see me post photos of are models! These are real women who are moms, students, scientists, teachers, and so much more. Every women deserves to be a boudoir babe.
“It's so easy to stand in front of a mirror and find things wrong: stretch marks, thighs that touch, cellulite, I could keep going, but it'll defeat my point. I had been so afraid to do a session because I thought the camera would intensify every single one of those flaws. The session was just the opposite though! YOU used the camera remind me that even though I am not the size 7 that I was 13 years ago or even the size 10 that I was two years ago, I am still beautiful.” -a kickass boudoir babe
Getting messages like that is what this is all about. I want you to feel like a rockstar. I want you to feel special and beautiful.
I bet you have some questions…
Will you share my photos online?
No way! The photos you see are online are women who have decided to sign a model release. You can do that if you want to, but you will never be pressured to share your images.
What do I need to bring?
I will send you a lingerie guide with tips on how to put together a wardrobe. You are responsible for your clothing and foundation for the makeup artist to use. Leave everything else to me!
I have no lingerie and have no idea where to start. Help?
In addition to the lingerie guide I will send you, I am available to do pre-session consults with you about wardrobe. We also have a super fun group on facebook called Franz with Benefits and we share all sorts of lingerie links and inspiration within the group. I can help you every step of the way with picking out the perfect wardrobe pieces for you! Maybe you hate the idea of lingerie? We can have fun styling items that are not traditional lingerie such as sweaters, jeans, tank tops, and more.
What about going au naturel?!
Get it, giiiiirrrrlll!! I often take nude portraits and they can be oh-so-beautiful! Some boudoir babes want to go this route and some do not. It is totally up to you!
When should I book?
Right now, duh! If you have a deadline to have your final products in hand, your session should be about six weeks before that deadline. I book up to a year in advance and many gals love to book early so they can use it as a motivator towards goals!
Let’s talk about the money…
The upfront cost is a $350 session fee. You will need to invest $100 at the time of booking and the rest is due before your session. The session fee covers hair, makeup, the lingerie guide, pre-session consultation if requested, our photography session, and our reveal session when you get to see your images!
