BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY ANSWERS? BUT I DIDN'T ASK ANYTHING YET!
These BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY ANSWERS have been put together based on our actual experience and experience of other photographers, makeup artists and stylists.
Most women approach boudoir photography cautiously and with doubt. It’s intriguing but somewhat scary. Desired but frightening. It actually takes a great leap of faith to move from thinking about taking professional boudoir images to researching a professional photographer to talking to boudoir studio and then finally to booking a boudoir photography consultation.
We highly recommend you either write us or call us before booking a session to discuss your ideas and vision – this will allow us to set the right expectations as well as prepare for your boudoir photoshoot properly.
OK, SO WHAT IS BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY ANYWAY?
Our goal is to make you beautiful, sexy, daring, amazingly attractive and then photograph you to preserve that image for you to enjoy or make it a gift to your significant other.
BUT I'M NOT A SUPER MODEL AND I'M UNCOMFORTABLE. I'VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE. HELP!
As for your session – here’s how it works. We’ll meet with you to discuss your ideas for your session because this is about YOU. Then we decide on a few things we think you might want to bring or, possibly, buy. I also have a few items in my photo studio for you to use. The next step is to agree on time and place and actually do the shoot. I will bring our equipment to whatever place we agree on and you will bring your gorgeous self. Once the session is complete it will take some time to review and edit the best of the best images for you. Finally, these gorgeous and fantastic works of art will be revealed to you and they will be yours to keep. This would also be a good time to decide if you want them printed. In addition to these, you will have a chance to see other images and request more pictures to be edited and/or printed (for an extra fee).
Trust me, I know exactly how you feel and will help you and guide you through the whole session as it happens. The awkwardness wears off quickly and soon you are having a blast. It’s fun… Really!
DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?
I strongly believe in pushing limits and ultimately letting you be whoever you want to be. Some of our clients want to be themselves – and we’re totally okay with that. Other clients want to try a new persona, explore their alter ego or simply do something crazy and out of this world. Let’s discuss it during your consultation and you will know what to say at your next hair appointment.
Most of all – this session is about you, your desires and your vision.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? DO YOU SUPPLY CLOTHING, FOR EXAMPLE - LINGERIE?
ARE YOU OK WITH NUDITY, IF I SO CHOOSE?
In addition to this, I am LGBTQ+ and kink-friendly and you can openly discuss your ideas with me even if they do not conform to traditional or “vanilla” styles.
By the same token – while I appreciate female form and beauty there are certain things I don’t want to see or photograph. Provided that the customers stay away from those things we will have an amazing boudoir experience overall.
WILL OTHER PEOPLE SEE MY PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE, INSTAGRAM OR FACEBOOK?
As a result of their photos being so awesome, my clients like me back. Some of them like us so much that they explicitly allow us using their photos so that we can promote our boudoir photography service. We offer a discount to any of our packages if a client wants to allow us to use their photos – check out this Launch Promo.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND SO I'LL FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE?
Bringing your friend may also bring another useful benefit for you and her. If she is amazed by your awesome boudoir photography session and as a result books her own session on the spot then we’ll give you an additional 20% discount. This is on top of another 20% you may be able to get if you let us use your images for our business portfolio.
WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OUT MY WRINKLES AND SCARS, MAKE ME 10 YEARS YOUNGER AS WELL AS 20% HAPPIER?
Some clients don’t like “too much photoshop”, however, they don’t always realize what the “photoshop” really means. Sometimes people go as far as calling it “plastic skin”, and yet they would gawk in awe of magazine models’ perfect skin and shape. We can leave your wrinkles as they were, keep your stretch marks on as well as preserve all your imperfections. However, we want to encourage you to make that extra leap and make it a picture from a magazine, a movie shot or something completely ethereal.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE FIRST IMAGES FROM THE SESSION?
Additionally, you can request to view all images from your session so that you can ask us to edit additional images. While we are not sharing originals, we’ll be happy to let you browse them during your viewing session and request additional images to be retouched. Schedule and pricing for extra services will have to be discussed separately.
I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS!
Feel free to SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION and don’t forget to include your questions as well as your ideas for your very own boudoir photography session.
