When a client contacts me about scheduling a boudoir photo shoot I hear the same questions more often than not. Below are some of my boudoir photo shoot tips, hopefully you’ll find them useful!
Q: I’ve never done this before! What should I expect?
A: That’s great! Most of my clients haven’t done a session before. I HIGHLY recommend setting up a meeting with me! That way we can meet face to face, you can see my studio and albums, and we can address all your concerns. I promise it’ll make the day of shooting much more comfortable for both of us.
Q: Where will my session take place?
A: The price of each boudoir package includes a room rental at one of the many luxurious hotels in Sacramento, California. Typically the Citizen Hotel or Westin Hotel.
Q: Is hair and make up included?
A: Hair and Make up is included in my premium and deluxe session fees. Prices are always negotiable if you have your own however!
Q: Can I bring a friend to my session?
A: Yes you can! Friends are fun to bring along for support. I allow only one, since there isn’t room for more, and only ask that you bring a supportive, positive, friend that you’re comfortable around. If you feel that you’d be more uncomfortable having another pair of eyes on you then I wouldn’t suggest it. It’s all about feeling great and having fun during my sessions.
Q: I have bad skin, do you edit that?
A: Don’t you worry, I’ve got you covered!
Q: I’m really not comfortable with a part of my body, do I have to be nude?
A: Absolutely not! Most of my clients keep some form of clothing on the entire session. Your comfort is the most important thing to me. If I suggest something you don’t like just let me know! Typically we have a whole game plan set up prior to the shoot to avoid any awkwardness.
Q: These photos are a surprise for my husband. Can you please not share them on your website?
A: I LOVE surprises! Where or not I get to share any photos is completely up to you! If there are any photos I’d like to use I will always approve with you first! You’ll notice most of the photos on my site don’t show my client’s faces for that exact reason.
Q: What should I bring?
A: I encourage you to bring any jewelry, shoes, or special meaning items, anything to get creative with.
Q: Will I get to see photos while we’re shooting?
A: Yes! I’ll show you a few during shooting to make sure you know how amazing you look!
Q: When will my photos and album be ready?
A: Your online gallery will be up within a week. In most cases 2-3 days.
