But were too nervous to ask!
Do you have questions about what happens at a boudoir shoot? Here are 5 things you wanted to know, and one question we get every day!
Do I have to get naked?
Absolutely Not. We respect your level of comfort and will do our best to make sure things stay in place. There’s always a chance of a wardrobe malfunction, but there’s no need to bare all. Yes, we do tasteful nudes and implied nude photography, but unless that’s something you have in mind we won’t go there.
The thought of wearing lingerie in front of strangers is really intimidating. How can I get over this?
This is totally normal! Most of our clients have the same feelings, and often still feel nervous arriving for their session. You don’t even have to wear lingerie to your shoot if you don’t want to. A tank top and cheeky panties that you can pull and play with, or a pair of sexy, ripped jeans and a sheer top against our concrete wall can be just as sexy as a bra and panty set. We feel boudoir is a mix of emotion, pose, wardrobe and how you feel when you see the image. If you feel sexy when you look at these images, or when you are in our penthouse studio then we are succeeding at our goal of making all women feel comfortable right now in their life.
We have an all-female staff who work very hard to make sure the environment is relaxed and inviting. You’ll have some one-on-one time with Kaylin which will help you shake off any last minute nerves. Before the shoot even starts it’ll feel like your hanging out with your best girlfriend for the afternoon. Once we start shooting, it’s just you and the photographer in the room.
I’m not where I want to be weight wise. Should I wait to book?
This whole process is about loving your body where it is right now, no matter what shape or size. We coach and pose our size 2 clients the same as we do our size 22 clients (see the photos below? Same pose). #StopWaiting and book one of our holiday sessions starting now!
We know exactly how to show off your best assets while making you feel confident and beautiful.
What happens if I don’t know how to pose or look sexy?
Kaylin will direct your movements and guide you through the poses. She will even get into the poses herself so you have a clear visual of what it looks like. The key to getting the best photos? Be yourself.
I don’t know if I’ll like enough images of myself. Should I bother doing a full shoot?
If we had a dollar for every client that thought they would only like “one or two”, we’d finally have that damn penthouse – oh wait! We DO have that damn penthouse!
Boudoir photography captures a side of you that you don’t often get to see. Which is probably why ladies are skeptical about how many images of themselves in lingerie they’ll actually like. Clients are always surprised when they have a hard time narrowing down their images, which is why everyone ends up upgrading to the 8×8 premium album with 40 images!
Come on, how many times are you going to do this?
Ok so I’m throwing in an extra one since we get asked this all the time…
Do you photoshop out any imperfections?
Light retouching is included in all of our sessions. We want you to still look like you, but a more refined version of you. All of the retouching we do is absolutely age appropriate. We had a lovely 60 year old woman in our studio this week and I just lightly retouched her laugh and smile lines. We are not going to remove your wrinkles, no matter how many times you ask me to, Mom! :p Our retouching typically includes removing fine lines, eye bags, bruises, acne, cellulite, stretch marks, those small shitty tattoos we got when we were teenagers and even those bumps on our bums. Yes, we all have red bumps on our asses and of course we’ll edit them out. We got your back, girl!
It’s time to treat yourself!
