Why Book a Boudoir Session & Other FAQ's
Being an Austin, TX Boudoir Photographer, I often get two responses when I tell people what I shoot. One reaction is, “Awesome, I’ve always wanted to do Boudoir!” The other reaction is, “What is that again? Why would someone want those photos?” Based on the frequency of the second reaction and the general curiosity of you, my future client, I wanted to give you a little rundown of what a Boudoir session is like and who it is for.
Boudoir sessions with me generally take place in the comfort of your home or in a hotel. As a Boudoir Photographer, it is my goal and mission to not only make you feel absolutely comfortable, but to photograph you in a way that makes you feel and see just how AWESOME and AMAZING you truly are!
Boudoir photography is perfect for you if you are … well … a WOMAN! No matter what is encouraging you to book a boudoir session, you should do it and do it now! Don’t wait to “lose those last 10lbs” you are perfect now! You deserve to feel BEAUTIFUL and SEXY and feel EMPOWERED by all of the qualities that make you the FABULOUS woman that you are!
Boudoir photography is a way to EMPOWER YOU!
Who Books Boudoir Sessions?
A woman who wants to be reminded of her femininity and sexiness. A woman who wants to surprise someone special in her life. A woman who recently found out she was pregnant and wants to capture her current figure. A woman who wants to be able to look back on her images 20 years later and say DANG! :).
Do I have to be nude?
No, you don’t have to be nude. In fact, you can wear whatever makes YOU feel beautiful. If that’s a teddy, a lingerie set, a sweatshirt, a cocktail dress …. nothing at all, that’s great! My goal as an Austin, TX Boudoir photographer is to photograph you in a way that makes you feel and look stunning!
Where does my Boudoir Session take place?
All boudoir sessions take place at a location of your choosing, unless you are purchasing The Luxury Package.
What types of lingerie should I bring?
Prior to your session I will create a customized mood board for your shoot based on the information from our consultation. I will recommend items based on your body type and the look you are going for.
How should I prepare before my Boudoir shoot?
I recommend getting plenty of rest to prevent any bags or low energy. Also, it is best to drink plenty of water on the days leading up to the shoot. Staying hydrated flushes out toxins and makes your skin glow! Lastly, if you plan on having any types of grooming services done, please do so at least 3 weeks before. This will ensure that any potential bumps or redness will have calmed down by the shoot date.
Do you accept payment plans?
Of course I do! Once I receive your session fee, your date is booked. Then you are welcome to pay off whatever you would like to purchase. Once I have collected all of the payment you will receive your items. I accept cash, check or credit card.
How long are your Boudoir Sessions?
Hair and makeup generally takes about one hour and then I shoot for 90 minutes. Unless you are purchasing The Luxury Package, where the shoot time is for 2 hours.
Will you show my images online?
Within my Boudoir Contract I have a section addressing releasing images. I generally use the images for blogging and marketing. However, if you sign off that your would like to keep your images completely private, then that is EXACTLY what I will do!
So don’t hesitate any longer, book you boudoir session today!!!
