Frequently Asked Questions about Boudoir Photography
Have you always wondered what happens during a boudoir session? Well wonder NO MORE! Here are a few of the most common questions I receive about having a professional boudoir session.
I'm really nervous. Is that normal?
It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir session, so don't worry. Most of our clients are nervous until the session has gone on for a few minutes. After it starts, you’ll begin to loosen up. If you’re still nervous, try out these relaxation tips we’ve provided in another blog post: Click here.
How do I know how to pose?
Don’t worry about posing. I have totally got you covered in that department. I know all the tricks to create the most flattering angles for you, no matter what shape or size you are.
Do your packages include hair and makeup?
We do offer packages with complimentary makeup, however hair styling is not currently available.
Am I allowed to bring alcohol to help loosen my nerves?
As long as you're over 21, that’s totally fine with us. We do offer champagne or wine at your session to help you relax.
Do you provide the wardrobe?
We have several props and outfits to offer. We do not offer shoes at this time. We also encourage you to bring something you already in your closet and bring it along. If you need help choosing an outfit, we can definitely give you some suggestions.
I want share these pictures with my partner, but I don't want loose prints floating around. Any ideas for the best gift?
This is a very common concern and we totally understand. We recommend placing an order for our little black book. This is much more discreet and will keep all of your images in one place and not floating around. We also offer disc drive delivery. For more information on these products, just ask.
What should I bring to my boudoir session?
For our sessions, we suggest two to three of your favorite outfits and any props you may want to incorporate and a nice pair of high heels.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes, you can bring a friend if you think it will help you relax. However, sometimes an extra set of eyes has the opposite effect, even if it is a friend. They are more than welcome to come, but if they are making you uncomfortable, they may have to wait out in the lobby.
Will my session be with a male or female photographer?
Our team is composed of both men and women, but you will only have a female photographer for your session.
Do you do touchups?
Yes, we will smooth skin and do some basic retouching on all of your portraits.
I’m not a model – are boudoir photos still flattering even if my body isn’t perfect?
Absolutely! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy. If you have any specific concerns, contact us and we can talk about it!
Do you do outdoor boudoir sessions?
We currently do not have our own outdoor location to do this, but if you have some private land, let us know and we’ll set something up. We do offer outdoor boudoir sessions, but only if they take place on your private property. It also has to be in a secluded area, so nobody can see us during the session. We do this to protect you and our company. We also offer on site boudoir sessions at the location of your choice- your home or a hotel room.
Do I have control over who sees my images?
Yes, most certainly. We will only share photos if you have given us permission and have approved the images for sharing. We respect your wishes and won't post or share any images if you’d prefer they stay private.
