Booking a Boudoir Photo Session can sound intimidating. But, it doesn’t have to be. In fact, you may be wondering What is a Boudoir Photo Session anyway? (Notice the link? Go ahead and take a pause and check it out if you have questions.)

Boudoir Photo Session

1. I’m really nervous. Is that normal?

It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir photo 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.

2. How will I  pose for my boudoir photo session?

Don’t worry about posing for your boudoir photo session. We’ve totally got you covered in that department. We know all the tricks to create the most flattering angles for you, no matter what shape or size you are. Our photographers are all ladies too. We get it.

3. Does my Boudoir Photo Session include hair & makeup?

While our Boudoir Photo Session does not include hair & makeup, our team does have a full service Wedding Planner on staff. So, we are very happy to make referrals to you for close by, trustworthy hair & makeup artists. Or, we can talk about creating a package that includes this service on location.

4. Am I allowed to bring alcohol to my session?

As long as you’re over 21, that’s totally fine with us. We understand that sometimes having a drink can help you relax. However, try to keep the drinking to a minimum because you don’t want to go the other way! And if you do want a drink, let’s incorporate it into your boudoir session!

5. Do you provide the outfits for boudoir sessions?

We do not provide your wardrobe. A boudoir photo session outfit touches very intimate parts of you and we’re not sure you’d want to share with a stranger. Also, how exciting would it be to wear your special outfit while you present your boudoir photos to your partner? But, if you need some ideas you can check out our blog: insert blog link here.

6. I don’t want a bunch of prints. What can I order?

This is a very common concern and we totally understand. We recommend placing an order for a photo album. This is much more discreet and will keep all of your images in one place and not floating around. We have several sizes and cover options available.

7. What should I bring to my boudoir photo session?

For your boudoir photo session, we suggest two to three different outfits and any props you may want to incorporate. We also suggest a cover up to keep you warm in between scenery changes. Need help choosing props? Check out this blog article we’ve written on incorporating your partner’s interests by clicking here:

8. Can a friend come to my boudoir photo session?

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 outside. Comfort first for the best photos.

9. Will I have a male or female photographer?

For the comfort and safety of all of our clients and team, we only provide female photographers for our boudoir photo sessions. In fact, we currently only have 1 female photographer at the company offering sessions. Our other female photographers are focused elsewhere. That way you get the best experience because the photgrapher is comfortable with what they are shooting. 

10. Do you edit my boudoir photo session?

Yes, we edit every boudoir photo session. Typically, we will smooth your skin, brighten your hair highlights and hide any blemishes that you feel insecure about. Our goal is to make you feel beautiful and empowered while staying true to life. So, a light touch up of your images is all you need.

11. Will a Boudoir Photo Session even be flattering?

Absolutely! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy. If you have any specific concerns, contact us and we can talk about it! In fact, we’ll have you fill in an online planning form before your session so you can let us know about any areas that concern you before we meet. 

12. Do you do outdoor boudoir photo 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.

13. Who will see my images?

Because we value your privacy and want to keep you safe we never share your boudoir photo session images publicly without your permission. If you don’t want people to see your photos we will protect them. And if you do give us permission we go the extra step to ask if it’s okay to show your face. We won’t do that unless you’re okay with it. In fact, several of the images in this blog are from clients who asked us to keep their identity anonymous. We will protect you.

We hope this answered any questions you have about our Boudoir Photo Sessions. Please feel free to reach out to ask any other questions we may not have covered here. We’re more than happy to help.
