Frequently Asked Questions About Boudoir
I'm really nervous. Is that normal?
It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir 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.
What kind of Covid Precautions is your studio taking?
We sanitize everything prior to your session and after. All outfits from the Client Wardrobe are cleaned and sanitized. Our Team will also be wearing masks during your session for all of our safety. If you believe to have been in contact with someone who has/had covid prior to your session, we ask you let us know as soon as possible so we can reschedule your session. Our client's health are very important to us and we do not want to spread anything to our client or bring it home to our families.
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. I'll even jump in and show you before each pose.
Do your packages include hair and makeup?
Every session includes complimentary hair and makeup by a professional MUA included in the session fee. Our team takes your personal preferences and vision into account to give you an amazing experience.
Am I allowed to bring alcohol to help loosen my nerves?
As long as you're over 21, that’s totally fine with us. We do offer champagne or wine at your session to help you relax.
Do you provide the wardrobe?
We do provide access to our client closet in a variety of different sizing and colors. You are more than welcome to bring a few personal items if you feel more comfortable. If you need help choosing an outfit, we can definitely give you some suggestions and recommend you put together a Pinterest board so we can collaborate.
Do I get a break during the day?
Yes! You do get an hour and a half to two hour break after our session for lunch, a spa date or some shopping on Michigan Ave!
I want to 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 we totally understand. We recommend placing an order for our Lux Album. This is much more discreet and will keep all of your images in one place and not floating around. We also offer folios and Crystal USB for digital images. For more information on these products, just ask. After your ordering session all images not purchased are deleted and purged for your safety and privacy.
What should I bring to my boudoir session?
For our sessions, we suggest 3 or 4 different outfits and any props you may want to incorporate. Need help choosing props? Check out this blog article we’ve written on incorporating your partner’s interests by clicking here.
Will my session be with a male or female photographer?
Our team is composed of all women, so you will only have a female photographer for your session.
Do you do touchups?
Yes, we 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 us and we can talk about it!
Do you do outdoor boudoir 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.
Do I have control over who sees my images?
Yes, most certainly. We will only share photos if you have given us permission and have approved the images for sharing. We respect your wishes and won't post or share any images if you’d prefer they stay private.
