Top 12 Frequently Asked Questions about Boudoir Photography

1. Do I have to share my images online?

This is one of the top 12 frequently asked questions about boudoir photography. No, you do not! Every body that you see on my website and social media I have been graciously allowed to share with written consent from each individual. I am always excited and happy to share the art we have created together, as I believe art is meant to be seen! But I also respect your privacy and choice to keep your images private. When you return to the studio for your in person image reveal and ordering appointment (approx 2 weeks after your session) we will sit down together and go over your images one by one and you can hand select which specific images you are comfortable sharing. Alternatively you can choose to keep them all private. This is 100% your choice!

2. Do I have to wear lingerie or get naked?

That is entirely up to you! You do not have to wear specific lingerie and while I always encourage you to bare it all during a session you are not required to by any means. Communication, trust, and comfort are key so you will always have the final say. Head over to this blog post about choosing outfits for more ideas!

3. The people on your website all look like models. I am not “model material”… can I do this?!

I’ll take that as a compliment. The majority of the people on my website are just like you! They all had the same concern before their session, and, well… look at them! I am here to direct you and help you pose. Relax, I got you! The best thing you can do is to get outta your own way. Let go of your inhibitions and trust the process.

4. Is Hair & Makeup included?

Yes! The wonderfully talented Ashley Paints Faces will be on site to pamper you and give you a nice “polish” before we begin your intimate portrait session.  We can help you complete your look, whether that’s “I just woke up like this” or full on glam! The choice is yours.

5. Where should I buy outfits?

There are a few places to buy outfits from and it depends on what you are getting and the style of your shoot! Here is a list to choose from with different style and sizing! My first choice is our very own locally owned and operated ForeverYoursLingerie in Langley, BC. They have an amazing selection from petite to plus, catering to a multitude of body types and sizes. It’s the only place I can find a good quality bra that fits me perfectly! And if you know me, you know I love supporting local!
Some other options are Victoria’s Secret, Forever21, Adoreme, Torrid (did you know that they just opened a Torrid location in Guildford Mall, Surrey, BC) La Vie En Rose, LaZenzaHips and Curves. If you are looking for something specific that you can’t find, let me know and I might know where to get it! Also don’t forget to raid your own closet – you may have some awesome finds in there you didn’t even consider!

6. How do I prepare for my session?

Don’t stress – I got you! I have curated a series of emails that you will receive leading up to your session to help you prepare! Some quick tips though are to start stretching, stay hydrated, moisturize and wear sunscreen! These are good rules to live by day to day, regardless of coming in for a photo session.

7. What type of Print Products do you offer?

Heirloom albums, hand crafted right here in Canada, archival quality matted prints to metal estate art. I am so proud to offer only the finest, quality Canadian products. Check out the blog post on Print Products here for more info!

8. Do you photoshop my images?

Yes, to a degree. Some are are simple like color correction, exposure, color toning. When it comes to skin retouching, I remove blemishes and bruises, things that are not permanent parts of your body, as well as reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. We will have a conversation before your session begins about the level of retouching you are comfortable with on your images. Rest assured, I will keep you looking like you!

9. How many outfits should I bring?

We usually have time to photograph 3 outfits plus a nude set. I always encourage you to bring multiple options so we can both go through them the day of to find what will work best and I love layers!

10. I’m freaking out! How can I calm my nerves?

It is 100% normal to be nervous for your session. You can help calm your nerves by making sure you are in our FB VIP GROUP. Here you can ask questions to me and past clients. So many love to share about their experiences and give you an idea of what to expect. You can also see live videos to get you get more comfortable with us and the studio. It is also a great place for inspiration and recommendations for other services while preparing for your session.
