Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a boudoir photo session?
A: It’s an intimate photoshoot of women usually in their lingerie or little clothing on. Many brides-to-be give the photos as a gift to their future husbands on or before wedding day, but it’s also popular for many other occasions. There are many reasons why women do a boudoir session: to boost confidence, to feel sexy again, to give as a gift to the significant other, to celebrate their new bodies after hard training and weight loss, or for occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine. Boudoir sessions are a great way to break away from our hectic lives and get pampered a little.
Q: I never did a boudoir session before, will you be guiding me?
A: The great majority of women we work with never tried a boudoir session before. We don’t expect you to have experience, as professional photographers it’s our job to guide you and show you what poses to do. It’s a lot easier than you think once you learn few tricks of the trade.
Q: I’m shy.. do I have to show a lot of skin?
A: Different women have different comfort levels, we understand that and want to make sure you’re comfortable. If you’re the shy type and don’t want to be be in your undies in front of the camera, we can work with fabrics and show only few body parts, or you can wear a shirt or a blouse to be more covered. On the other hand, if you’re more free about your body and want to try everything from sexy lingerie to semi and tasteful nudes, then you could do that too.
Q: I’m nervous.. is that going to be a problem?
A: You’re breaking some boundaries and trying something outside your comfort zone, it’s normal to be nervous at first. However, most women whom we worked with tend to lose their nervousness within the first 10 minutes of the shoot. Once they see how the session goes and how professional, fun, and relaxing it is, they get very comfortable and start enjoying the shoot, so much so that many don’t want it to end.
Q: I’m not young.. I’m a plus size.. I’m a mom.. can I still do it?
A: Of course you can. This shoot is for everyone to enjoy, it’s for real women in all ages, sizes, and shapes. It’s rare that we have clients who are model types, the majority of women we work with are average people who simply want to break away from their daily routines and try something new and exciting. We believe that every woman is beautiful in her own way, so whether you’re a plus size, a mom, or advanced in age, you could benefit from this shoot. It’s a confidence booster and it will make you feel sexy all over again.
Q: Can I do a nude session?
A: Yes you can. Our fine art nude photography is very tasteful and artistic. We work with a lot of shades, shadows and silhouettes and the end result looks so gorgeous that many hang it up on their wall. Depending on your comfort level, you can add some artistic nudes to your boudoir session.
Q: Will my pictures be used anywhere?
A: We will never use your pictures in any way without your permission..we highly respect your privacy. If we would like to use any of your images for our website or printed material, we will contact you first and and ask for your written consent.
Q: Will there be someone else besides the photographer in the room during the shoot?
A: The only person who will be in the room is the photographer and sometimes his female assistant. We really care for your privacy and we want you to be very comfortable and relaxed.
Q: Can I bring a friend for support?
A: Sure you can. Actually we encourage you to do so if it helps you be more comfortable. You could choose to have your friend be there with you in the shooting area or wait for you in another room.
Q: If my friend and I are doing shoots back to back, will each one of us still have her own private session?
A: Yes, each of you will have her own private session even if you booked back to back. You could, however, be in the shooting area at the same time and alternate in front of the camera, so while one is changing the other is shooting, if that’s your preference.
Q: What’s the mood of the shoot like?
A: The mood is laid back, friendly and fun. We play music and give you simple and easy instructions to follow. You’ll feel sexy and gorgeous and have a great time.
Q: Do you provide hair and make up?
