12 Facts about Boudoir
Boudoir Photography – Frequently Asked Questions
The thought of a boudoir session can be scary, you’re baring it all literally in those cases where your nude in front of a stranger. During our phone consults we hear all types of questions and more often than not they’re all pretty much the same question.
Do you share my images?
This is a question we hear a lot and we want you to leave your session feeling as safe as possible. We will NEVER share images without approval and a signed release form. If you sign a form at the end of your session and then change your mind that’s completely fine.
Do I have to wear lingerie?
You definitely don’t have to specifically wear lingerie even though we want you to totally promote your beautiful selves; we want you to bring your own personality into your photoshoot. We recommend you start with something comfortable like boy shorts and a baggy sweater or a cute bodysuit that covers more than a shear one. We have an outfit guide to help you pick and choose outfits prior your shoot and of course we are always here to offer opinions! The most important thing is you feeling amazing in whatever you wear!
Do you have payment plans?
YES OF COURSE! We offer a few different payment plan types. You can divide your balance into three equal payments, by-weekly payments stretched over 4-6 months, or we have something we call a “boudie bank”. This allows you to start paying once you book your session prior. This gives you the opportunity to have a nice little nest egg to spend the day of your reveal. You can pay as much or as little as possible!
Is hair and makeup included?
Makeup is definitely included; we have an amazing licenced in-house makeup artist who freelances for us. Hair is an additional $75.00 but most of our clients choose to add this simply to feel extra pampered the day of their shoot.
Do you Photoshop my images?
I do edit your images for light, exposure, and color balance. However, I WILL not edit out cellulite, stretch marks, scarring or anything that defines you.
Where should I buy outfits?
There are a few places to buy outfits depending on your budget. Lasenza, winners, forever 21 are all great options for in store buys and they all have online websites. Websites to look at are torrid.com, fredricksofhollywood.com, yandy.com, lace.ca and of course amazon.ca.
What type of print products do you have?
We offer a variety of packages that include albums, metal print wall arts, mini magnet albums and fun view finders!
Do you offer digitals?
All of our packages include some sort of print product, but there is also an A La Carte list that you can choose from as well! On this list we give the option to add on digital images! These digital images come in a locked online gallery, for you to download and share!
I’m freaking out! How can I calm my nerves?
Nerves are all part of the self-love journey! There’s the old saying “If it doesn’t scare you it’s not worth doing?” I strongly believe that nerves are what give people the final push to think “Hey! I need to do this for myself!” embrace them and use this as the opportunity to really get to know yourself and embrace yourself for the bad ass you are.
How many outfits should I bring?
We go over this on the phone consult, but our packages include 1-4 outfit changes and the option of nude photos. We also have the client closet; this is a collection of lingerie items that we supply. This includes body suits and bra and panty sets. Keep in mind we do require a nude or black thong under all our client closet items.
Should I get to my shoot early?
You can always arrive a few minutes early for your session but it’s not necessary. We start hair and makeup at 9:30 and are typically done that shortly after 10:30am.
