Your Photographer, Kim Ortiz



I am a portrait photographer, specializing in boudoir, seniors and dance. Located in East Tampa area, FL. I travel to Fort Lauderdale a few times a year, and to Puerto Rico every other year. 

My favorite thing to do is spend time with my fur baby and visiting the beach on the evenings. 

The best thing about working with my clients is watching them transform into a confident rockstar and I am honored to document it.

What is Boudoir??

Here is what you need to know

There are many misconceptions. But the important things to know are:

-Boudoir photography is for every type of woman. 

-Being sexy is at any age and any size

-Being sexy is not just being in lingerie, it can be wearing a turtle   neck, can be wearing jeans and a tank top. You decide how you   want to be photographed! 

-Model experience is not required!! My job is to make you look     your very best. 

-When a woman invests in herself, she grows the confidence to do   more in her every day life. 




What is boudoir photography?

Boudoir is defined as the woman's private bedroom. It is used to described intimate portraits. No need to be naked. It can be implied, with lingerie, oversized sweater, etc. Depends entirely on your comfort level and what we discuss in your consultation. 

When should I book my session and do you require a deposit?

I book a few weeks up to a few months in advance. We do prepaid sessions in order to secure the date, 1/2 which is due at the time of booking and the remaining balance up to three days before the photosession. 

What are your booking rates?

Our collections include consultation, styling, and ordering appointment. Hair and make up may or may not be included. It does include some products, since we require a prepay of a collection. Collections start at $1,900 and go up from there. Our session retainer fee is $500. 

What does your session fee include?

It includes a consultation for styling and planning your day with me, 1-2 hours of photo session, a session to see your final images and some products. My clients have the option to see their images within the hour and go through them with me to see which ones they want retouched, and their order session. The second option is viewing them fully finished within 1-2 weeks. Currently consultations, some viewing and ordering sessions will be done via Zoom. ​

Can I just purchase digital images?

Some of our collections include digital images! 

Where are you located?

Currently I am located in East Tampa area, FL. If a different venue, the address will be provided upon consultation. Every few months, I travel to Fort Lauderdale, FL and every other year to San Juan, PR to do photo shoots. ​

Can friends and family come to the shoot?

Before I can answer this, I ask several questions. Among these questions, I ask, is your friend supportive of you, your body and the experience you will be having; Are they your cheerleaders. Only one friend/family member at the session. 

Do you shoot outdoors?

Depending on the weather, location, location fees, we can do a photo shoot outdoors. 

What days can I book my shoot?

Currently shoots are by appointment from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. 

Can I bring food?

At the moment, no food is allowed in-studio. I do provide a few drink options including water and some sodas. I do encourage to pack some snacks for after the shoot. 

How should I prepare for my photoshoot?


There are many ways to prepare for your photo shoot. After you have officially booked your session with me, I will send you a guide with instructions on how to prepare everything from head to toe. Meanwhile, you can head over to my blog post here for some starting pointers.


What I should wear/bring?


For your photo shoot, you should bring nude and black basic bra and thong and your choice of lingerie. We discourage any major props as they may stray from the main mission. During our styling consultations, if there is an item you really want to include in your shoot, such as an heirloom or a particular piece of clothing if the art will be for a gift, we can include it in part of the shoot.

What is your retouching philosophy?


I do minimal retouching. Sometimes the I’ll modify the light to produce a certain aesthetic, smooth skin, remove acne, fly away hairs and misplaced items. I don’t change bodies, or faces. Intimate portraits are to represent you, to encourage you to be brave and love the era you are in, to fall in love with every curve from your smile to your hips.

Can I request certain editing techniques?


No. At the time of consultation, we will have the conversation about how I edit the images, and if there is something in particular you want edited out, we can discuss it more in detail then.


Each photographer has their own art which includes how we take photographs and how we edit. When you reserve and have your photoshoot with a photographer, it is typically understood that you are doing so because you love and trust the photographers’ work.

Can I print my photos myself?


Because privacy concerns, I strongly suggest not to. I use printing labs I trust that work with photographers that work with the type of images I take. Which is why my collections include printed work, so that you can have your art printed and ready for your display.


Will you be publishing my photos online?


At signing of contract, I offer several options. Full publishing is I will publish any image purchased, partial publishing is I will publish images that don’t show your face or clear identifying markers, and lastly, not publishing images. I love sharing stories on the blog and short stories and social media. I invite you to share yours with me, the world with your favorite image.
