TOP 12 MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY

Updated: Jan 25




BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


The thought of a boudoir session can be scary. When talking to women about their session, I get asked all kinds of questions. So I wanted to compile a list of my 12 most frequently asked questions to give you some insight on preparing for a boudoir session with me!


DO YOU SHARE MY IMAGES?


Our number 1 priority is making sure our clients are comfortable, especially with boudoir! It can be a life-changing experience, but that also makes it nerve-wracking! Sometimes, you are learning how to love your body and you aren’t quite ready to share the images with the world, or sometimes these photos are specifically for your spouse and not for anyone else’s eyes. These are all great reasons for not sharing your photos, and it all depends on your personal preferences! If there are photos that I would like to share, I will ask your permission first, and only share what you are comfortable with!


DO I HAVE TO WEAR LINGERIE?


You definitely don’t have to specifically wear lingerie, it depends on your personality! There are a BUNCH of outfit ideas other than lacy little things! I call these empowerment outfits...outfits that you feel confident and sexy in. They can be full outfits, or loose mesh sweaters, button up shirts, jackets, or something personal to you or a loved one.




DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS?


We offer a few payment options! To book your shoot there is a session retainer fee. Prints and products are separate. You can choose to pay for your dream collection in full or broken in payments in our pre-session payment before your session. If you want more time to be able to pay off your collection choice, Prepayment Plans are perfect for you! Let me know if this is something that you want to set up!


IS HAIR AND MAKEUP INCLUDED?


Hair and makeup are included in all of our boudoir shoots! I think it’s really important for you to feel pampered, and having your hair and makeup done is a great way to do that! Our amazing team can help you complete your look, whether that’s “I just woke up like this” or FULL ON GLAM! You can bring any ideas you want for your makeup, and we can try to use it for inspiration!




DO YOU PHOTOSHOP MY IMAGES?


I do edit your images for light, exposure, and color balance. I do NOT however edit anything “out” that is permanent! I think it can be damaging to have a boudoir session done, and then edit out parts of yourself that make you who you are! Part of the process of accepting yourself and seeing your beauty also means not photoshopping out parts of yourself you don’t like. If there are parts of yourself that you are learning to love and aren’t thrilled about, that is okay! We are skilled in posing and lighting to make you look your absolute best and brings out your shine!


WHERE SHOULD I BUY OUTFITS?


There are a few places to buy outfits from and it depends on what you are getting and the style of your shoot! Here is a long list to choose from with different styles and sizing! Victoria’s Secret, Forever21, Shein, Honey Birdette, Corset Story, Blue Bella, Yandy, Savage X Fenty, Torrid, Adore Me, Hips & Curves, Fashion Nova, Bare Necessities, and Playful Promises. If you are looking for something specific that you can’t find, let me know and I might know where to get it! I have an amazing AMAZON LIST that I send out to all my clients!



WHAT TYPE OF PRINT PRODUCTS DO YOU HAVE?


We offer a variety of albums and wall art! The luxury, hand-made albums are my favorite. My clients absolutely love the feeling of picking up an album and viewing their gorgeous images all printed together in a beautiful book that they design...it’s really so surreal to see yourself like that!


”30 glorious and velvety pages from the boudoir shoot that I flip through myself every chance I get. I think I look at them more than he does. It’s a daily reminder that my self-image has completely changed after having my boudoir shoot.”

DO YOU OFFER DIGITALS?


Yes! Most of our Collections include either matching album digitals or full gallery digital images as a direct digital download. Digital images can also be purchased separately on the a La Carte Menu or as an add-on to a Collection.



I’M FREAKING OUT! HOW CAN I CALM MY NERVES?


Nerves are all part of the experience! I always say that it would probably be weird if you WEREN’T nervous. The nervousness in the beginning of your shoot make your moment of “WOW” seeing your photos for the first so much better!


Just know that I walk you through all your poses (often doing most of them with you), and I coach you through all the facial expressions...you are never alone!


HOW MANY OUTFITS SHOULD I BRING?


I recommend you planning on bringing a variety of outfits, but we usually shoot 2-4, depending on the Collection you choose! A well-fitted bra and panty set and kick ass bodysuit are definite essentials for your shoot. I always say to bring more if you can’t decide and I will help you decide at your shoot! When in doubt, we can do a whole session in a white sheet.





SHOULD I GET TO MY SHOOT EARLY?


You should always plan on getting to your shoot right on-time, so we can talk about your outfits and colors and make a plan for hair and makeup! Most sessions start at 9am on a weekday.



WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?


We are located in downtown Modesto, CA! Easy freeway access and in the heart of our Do-Mo District where much of the heart of Modesto resides.
