I want to do a boudoir shoot, but I'm a bigger/older girl. Can I still do it?
Absolutely! I love photographing people all ages, sizes and shapes; in fact, I encourage all women to do a boudoir session. My lovely makeup artists and myself will help you with looks and poses that are right for your body type, and most importantly, make sure you are comfortable and have a fun session. All the ladies that come through my studio walk away feeling empowered, confident and astounded by their own beauty.
Is hair and makeup included?
Yes, I have a team of professional makeup artists, and your MUA for the day will come to the studio to give you an amazing makeover before your photo session! This luxury pampering experience (includes lashes) is included in your session fee.
How many outfits should I bring?
I recommend 2-3 outfits, but of you are unsure you are welcome to bring along what you have and we can go through it at the studio and make the decisions together. And remember to bring shoes and accessories for your outfits!
Can you recommend stores where I can shop for lingerie?
The most popular stores where people buy their lingerie for boudoir sessions are Honey Birdette and Bras N Things. They both have great quality stuff and a wide variety of bra and underwear sets, bodysuits, stockings, suspenders and robes.
How long does a boudoir session go for?
The duration of the session from start of hair and makeup to the moment you leave the studio is approximately 3.5h.
When will I receive my photos?
Fully edited digital images take 2 weeks to complete, and printed and custom products take 2-6 weeks from order date. All images and products require full payment before they can be worked on and created.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I offer several different forms of payment plans and finance options to help you spread out the cost of your order. The best and most popular way is to pay it off periodically prior to the session so you can receive your beautiful images as soon as they are ready; however I also offer weekly, fortnightly and monthly recurring payment plans for up to 12 months after the session.
Fears, objections and misconceptions!
I don't feel comfortable in my body / I've had 1/2/3/4 kids and I don't look sexy anymore.
First of all, YOU ARE GORGEOUS! I know this for a fact. I hate that you don't feel comfortable or beautiful at this point in your life, and I want to help you change that. This is exactly WHY you should do a boudoir shoot now. Don't wait until you've "lost the weight" or "feel more comfortable" - instead think of it as the perfect way to get to the point where you DO feel comfortable in your skin, babies or no babies, extra curves or not! You deserve to feel beautiful and sexy NOW. And trust me, doing a boudoir shoot is out of everyone's comfort zone, but I can PROMISE you that you will feel comfortable and sexy and have so much fun at your session! ❤️
I'm not a model / skinny / young.
You don't have to be! All the women who come to me are everyday people of all sizes, shapes and ages. You don't need to know how to pose like a model, I will give you all the guidance you need, and I know all the flattering positions and angles for different body types! I absolutely LOVE when women 45+ come to me for shoots, often they want something a bit more towards the glamour genre which is totally okay, and they always look amazing! 😍
It's too expensive / I can't justify spending that much money on myself.
This is one of the most common thing I hear. But trust me, YOU ARE WORTH IT! If you are going to make an investment, investing in YOURSELF is the way to go, especially if it means feeling more confident, sexy and comfortable in your own skin as a result!
Most people who book their shoots with me don't have the money for it just lying around. That's exactly why I offer payment plans, and very flexible options at that. To help my clients spread out the costs I offer several different types of payment plans (in-house no-interest plans and established finance with weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment options).
Again, say it with me: YOU ARE WORTH THIS! ❤️
