Boudoir FAQs

I'm really nervous. Is that normal?

It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir session, so don't worry. Most people 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 provided in another blog post. 

How do I know how to pose?

Don’t worry about posing. 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. 

Do your packages include hair and makeup?

I don't currently offer packages with hair and makeup, but will happily assist you with your own make up if you bring it along to your session and also with hair styling.   

Do you provide the wardrobe?

I do not provide your wardrobe. This is something you’ll have to pick out and bring along yourself. If you need help choosing an outfit, I can definitely give you some suggestions, though. You do not need to purchase expensive lingerie, if you don't want to or can't afford to. I can take some beautiful images of you in any clothing, for example, a simple shirt.

I want share these pictures with my partner, but I don't want loose prints floating around. Any ideas for the best gift?

This is a very common concern and I totally understand. I recommend placing an order for my Gold or Platinum Bundles, which include an accordion album. This is much more discreet and will keep your images in one place and not floating around. For more information on these and other products, just ask.

What should I bring to my boudoir session?

For your boudoir photo shoot, I suggest two to three different outfits and any props you may want to incorporate. Need help choosing props? Check out this blog article on incorporating your partner’s interests.

Can I bring a friend?

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 out on the porch.

Will my session be with a male or female photographer?

I am a one woman team, so you will only have one female photographer for your session.

Do you do touchups?

Yes, I will smooth skin and do some basic retouching on all of your portraits.

I’m not a model – are boudoir photos still flattering even if my body isn’t perfect?

Absolutely! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy. If you have any specific concerns, contact me and we can talk about it!

Do you do outdoor boudoir sessions?

I currently do not offer outdoor boudoir photo shoots, simply because I don't have a private outdoor location for this. 

Do I have control over who sees my images? 

Yes, most certainly. I will only share photos if you have given me permission and have approved the images for sharing. I totally respect your wishes and won't post or share any images if you’d prefer they stay private.  Check out my full terms and conditions and privacy policy here.

Have a question that’s not listed here? Contact me and I will answer it for you.
