FAQ's About Boudoir Photography


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.

Once we help you get in the zone, you'll be feeling confident and glamorous!


I’m not a model – are boudoir photos still flattering even if my body isn’t perfect?

YES! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy!

If you have any specific concerns, we can discuss those leading up to your session and will give you posing help on set to hide those "problem areas" and embrace the parts of you that you love most!


Do I have control over who sees my images?

Absolutely! We 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.


How do I know how to pose?

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?

We do offer (and recommend) packages with hair and makeup by a professional stylist.

See our full list of session packages here for pricing.



Do you provide the wardrobe?

We do not provide your wardrobe. This is something you’ll have to pick out and bring along yourself. If you need help choosing an outfit, we can definitely give you some suggestions and can talk with you leading up to your session to help plan and can give tips the day of your session if you are torn between anything.


What should I bring to my boudoir session?

For your session, we suggest at least three different outfits, shoes, and any props you may want to incorporate.


Will my session be with a male or female photographer?

Our team is composed of all women, so you will only have a female photographer for your session.


Can I bring a friend?

You are welcome to bring a friend if discussed prior to the day of your session. We do like to make note that while you may think it will help you relax, sometimes an extra set of eyes has the opposite effect, even if it is a friend. They are more than welcome to come, but if they are making you uncomfortable, we will ask them to leave the room.

We do not recommend bringing your boyfriend/husband/partner unless you have booked a couples session as we are an all female staff.



Do you do touchups/edit the photos?

Yes, we will smooth skin and do some basic retouching on all of your portraits as an inclusion of your package.

More intensive editing may be done for an additional fee.


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

This is a very common concern and we totally understand. We recommend placing an order for our little black book, it's discreet and will keep all of your images in one place. If you want something larger, we have various sizes and cover options for your photo album.

For more information on our products, we have a pricing list we can share with you.
