Boudoir FAQ



What exactly is Boudoir Photography?
Boudoir, is pronounced (boo-dwahr) or if you are feeling fancy boo-dwa. While the term boudoir is French for bedroom, now a days it describes a variety of things including furniture, clothing and a genre of photography. As a boudoir photographer my style tends to be feminine, flirty and artistic.

Does my Boudoir photo session have to be in a “bedroom”?
NO, we can always arrange for an outdoor photo session at a location of choice!

I’m nervous about this, What is your advice?
Being nervous is totally normal but I promise nerves will melt away very soon! After 5 minutes of shooting you will see how fun and easy it is. We will only do what you are comfortable with. Most women are very worried about what they look like and think
that they need to be models or be skinny to have nice photos. However, most women are not super models or size 2 waist but that doesn’t mean that you can?t have beautiful, sexy photos! Boudoir photographers will know how to highlight your best features and avoid parts that you are not so in favor of.

Can I bring a friend to the photo shoot?
Yes, friends add to the fun. Please contact me before and I will generally welcome female visitors, but let the guys stay at home.

What should I wear?
What look are you going for? Sexy outfits, business outfits, tool belts, 40s pinup, football cheerleader etc? Less is more, keep it simple yet creative and let your unique beauty do the talking! Bring something that you feel comfortable, beautiful and sexy in. Ensure your clothing items are fitted to accentuate your curves but not skin tight to avoid red marks on your skin to show on your photos! REMEMBER accessories!

How many outfit should I bring?
Generally a 60 minute session will allow for 2 or 3 outfit changes depending on the style.

Is make-up and hair included in my 60 minute session?
No, it is extra time outside of the 60 minutes. Please allow an additional hour for hair and make-up. You 60 minute session begins when we start taking photos,

How long will it take to see my photos?
Generally 2-3 weeks but could be sooner.

How do I receive the photos?
Boudoir collections are uploaded to a password protected online gallery with a personal pin assigned for download. A CD may be purchased during your session. Once you have received your portrait collection we will meet to go over any product or print purchases. Our Little Black Book custom album is a favorite!
