Boudoir Photography F.A.Q.
DO YOU OFFER MAKEUP/ HAIR SERVICE?
Professional makeup application is provided as part of your session fee as well as light hairstyling. Just arrive with fresh, clean face and hair and we’ll take care of the rest.
WHERE DO THE SHOOTS TAKE PLACE?
Your photo session may take place virtually anywhere you would like. While we have our own studio, we have had sessions with clients in their own homes, hotel suites and even the beach. The possibilities are endless. If you’d like your shoot to be in a unique location, just ask, I have lots of alternative recommendations.
HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION TAKE?
Mini sessions are around 2 hours total which includes time getting makeup applied, hairstyling with 45 minutes of shooting time. For the Voulez Experience (full standard) sessions, clients spend about 3.5 hours in total with us. This includes time for outfit changes, makeup application, hairstyling and touch ups with 90 minutes of shooting time.
I DON’T KNOW HOW TO POSE, WILL YOU HELP?
No model experience is required. Your only job is to show up with an open mind ready to have a great time. Leave all the fussing over “getting it right” and “getting the shot” to us. I will coach you the whole way through on how to achieve the poses and expressions and will demonstrate each one before asking you to do it, if needed.
WHEN WILL I SEE MY SESSION IMAGES?
Many times, clients come back within two week to see their photos. After the session, I will work with you to schedule a date that works best. Before your viewing, I will narrow down all your images to the very best ones and we usually end up with anywhere from 25 to 40 photos for Mini Sessions and 60 to 80 photos for full sessions. On the day of your viewing, you’ll decide which images and products you’d like to order and we’ll also discuss payment options further.
IS MY SESSION PRIVATE? DO YOU SHARE MY IMAGES?
Your privacy is our first priority and given the nature of these sessions, your photos will never be shared without your express written consent. Whether you want to share some, all or none will be discussed during your viewing and ordering session.
DO YOU OFFER RETOUCHING? CAN YOU REMOVE SCARS, BLEMISHES, ETC?
Yes, each photo purchased will be fully retouched and any scars that are not permanent will be removed such as acne scarring, bruises and blemishes. If you have a scar that is permanent, we will not remove it as these sessions are about embracing and celebrating yourself exactly as you are. Our focus is not on changing who you are or what you look like but helping you to see that you are BEAUTIFUL NOW–not as some airbrushed version of yourself. In many cases, deep stretch marks will not be fully removed but will at least diminished during the retouching process.
WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE?
Thing come up and we understand, if you find yourself in a scheduling bind a week or more in a advance of your session date, you may reschedule with no fee attached. New photo session dates are subject to availability and must be schedule within 30 days or your original session date. If you need to reschedule a second time OR requested to reschedule less than a week from you session date, a fee of $75.00 will be assessed before a new date may be selected.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR. WILL YOU HELP ME?
Absolutely! Once you book your session, you will receive a prep guide that will help you with outfit ideas and tips on how to select the very best outfits to suit your body type and shape. Then, we’ll hope on the phone to discuss your outfit ideas and if you don’t have any I’ll guide you to making the right choices
We get how nerve-wrecking and exhilarating this process can be! Join our private, ladies only boudoir group on Facebook. Feel free to hang out and get to know me and be inspired by other women who have taken the leap.
