Here are some frequently asked questions about our boudoir sessions. If you have any other questions, please comment below or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Sessions will be held at Stonebridge in Cumberland, MD.
14500 Pine Ridge Rd NE, Cumberland, MD 21502
CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME TO MY SHOOT?
Absolutely! If you feel bringing a friend will help you feel more comfortable, I don’t mind at all.
WHAT DO I BRING?
You will need to bring your own lingerie because I want to be sure you’ve picked items that fit you perfectly and that you absolutely LOVE! Select outfits that match your body type and suit your session goals. In general here are some things you’ll want to bring: – 3 to 4 outfit changes like a mix of lingerie, special items (like a favorite shirt of his or jersey) and any other options you’d like – Accessories – jewelry and other items like a hat, helmet, veil etc. – Sexy shoes! – Cash or check to pay the remaining session fee balance. You can also pay by card via your invoice.
I’M OLDER THAN (NOT AS THIN AS, ETC.) THE WOMEN ON YOUR WEBSITE. DO YOU THINK I CAN STILL HAVE A GOOD SHOOT?
Absolutely! As you can understand, not everyone I work with wants their photo on my website, so you may not see someone who looks like you. But I photograph women of all ages and sizes. The women you’ll see on my website are real women just like you who went through makeup and hair, put together thoughtful wardrobes and trusted us to help them create sexy, beautiful images. We can do the same for you. Boudoir photography is for EVERY woman.
WHY IS MAKEUP AND HAIR INCLUDED? CAN I JUST DO MY OWN AND SAVE MONEY?
The Ruby and Sapphire collections include full makeup and simple hair styling. Getting your makeup and hair done sets the tone for your session. It gives you time to relax, get to know us better and feel pampered. But more importantly, having a professional do your makeup means they know how to do camera-ready makeup that will truly make you feel and look boudoir sexy! Honestly, you will want to have a professional makeup artist go with you everywhere once you experience this luxury! If you have a very specific hair style in mind, or ethnic hair or simply want to come with your hair fully styled, that is fine.
I’M WORRIED ABOUT ACNE/CELLULITE/STRETCHMARKS. DO YOU OFFER RETOUCHING?
I do have the ability to remove (most) scars, acne, blemishes, stretchmarks and cellulite in addition to bruises and other random marks you may have on the day of your session! I usually only remove these ON REQUEST. Please be aware that it may take me a little longer to get your gallery to you. I don’t “take off 15 pounds” or do “body reshaping.” I work with clients to find the most flattering poses and lighting to highlight their best features. If there’s something you feel particularly self-conscious about, let me know.
I DON’T KNOW HOW TO POSE. I’M NOT A MODEL. HELP!
This is by far the biggest concern for my clients! Don’t worry – as I’ve said before, I work with clients through every pose during their session. Note that posing will NOT feel like just another afternoon of lounging around on your bed. I tell my clients that if the pose feels a little weird, they’re probably doing it right! There are classic poses that most clients want to incorporate and new poses that clients wants to try. And I try to find several new poses for each session.
WHEN WILL I SEE MY SESSION IMAGES? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET EVERYTHING BACK?
Within two weeks after your shoot, I will send you a link to your online password-protected gallery to view your final images. If you’ve purchased additional items like an album, canvas or prints, they will take another 1-2 weeks to arrive.
