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!
Our number one priority is making sure our clients are comfortable. We respect your privacy no matter what. There are different options for our model releases such as Full, No, and Anonymous. IF you would like images to be shared, YOU select them at your Viewing & Ordering Appointment. Easy!
2. 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!
3. Do you have payment plans?
We offer a few payment options! There is a booking retainer to book your shoot. If you want more time to be able to pay off the total for your products/collection, you can schedule it a few moons out, and pay it off in payments! Most of our clients booked 6-12 months out. Let me know if this is something that you want to set up!
4. Is hair and makeup included?
Hair and makeup is 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 “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!
5. 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 is accepting yourself and seeing your beauty also means not photoshopping out part 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 bring out your shine!
6. Where should I buy outfits?
You don’t have to buy outfits! We have an extensive client closet full of a large variety of outfits ranging from small-5x. You can rest assure that we have something you will love! If you prefer to bring your own 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, Adoreme.com, Torrid, Lane Bryant, Aerie, foreveryourslingerie.com, hipsandcurves.com, jasminestaceycollections.com, Shein, and Amazon. If you are looking for something specific that you can’t find, let me know and I might know where to get it or I might have it in the client closet!
7. What type of print products do you have?
We offer a variety of luxury albums, beautiful folio boxes, and stunning, vivid metal wall art options! The wall art come in several size options and are my favorite! I absolutely love excitement of putting a beautiful image you are proud of up on your wall, it’s surreal to see yourself like that!
”I will forever have my beautiful album of pictures and wall art to display the portion of my journey captured to remind me of how far I have come and a reminder of how hard I have worked.”
-Carrie, on her experience at her boudoir shoot!
8. Do you offer digitals?
Our most popular collections include some sort of print product and digitals, but there is also an A La Carte list that you can choose from as well! On this list we have an option for adding a digital gallery to an album or folio box! These digital images come in a locked online gallery, for you to download and share!
9. I’m freaking out! How can I calm my nerves?
Neves are all part of the experience! I always say that it would be weird if you WEREN’T nervous. The nervousness in the beginning of your shoot makes your moment of “WOW” seeing your photos for the first time so much better!
10. How many outfits should I bring?
I always say to bring more if you can’t decide and I will help you decide at your shoot! All sessions come with 3 outfit looks. Don’t forget we have an amazing client closet!
11. Should I get to my shoot early?
You should plan to arrive right on time! I have added in the time to talk about your outfits and plan for hair and makeup!
12. Where is your studio located?
We are located in Catoosa, Oklahoma, just minutes from Tulsa.
