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 of our clients are nervous until the session has gone on for a few minutes. After it starts, you’ll begin to loosen up.

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?

All of our full Boudoir sessions come with professional hair and makeup included.

Do you provide the wardrobe?

We do provide some wardrobe – we often use sheets for poses, but we have robes and other lingerie pieces for your use, however we always suggest bringing 2-3 pieces of your own, especially a simple/lace black panty and bra set. If you need help choosing an outfit, we can definitely give you some suggestions and chat more during the wardrobe consultation.

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

If you are doing this session as a gift and do not want prints floating around, we recommend placing an order for an album. This is much more discreet and will keep all of your images in one place and not floating around.

What should I bring to my boudoir session?

For our sessions, we suggest two to three different outfits and any props you may want to incorporate. We will definitely discuss this before our wardrobe consultation and during.

Can I bring a friend?

Since our space is smaller and we move sets around a lot we suggest not bringing anyone along unless you are doing a fun girls session!

Will my session be with a male or female photographer?

Our team is composed of just me currently, so you will only have a female photographer for your session.

Do you do touchups?

Yes, we will smooth skin and do retouching on all of your portraits. We also discuss the level of retouching during our viewing and ordering session.

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.
