This all starts with a phone consultation so we can discuss all the details that goes into the entire boudoir experience starting with the location that best suites you. I shoot on location and have a variety of different suggestions, but if there is somewhere you have in mind to shoot like a hotel or your home that is definitely an option.
Once we get our location and date set, I can book hair and makeup for you. The girls I have been working with are wonderful. They are talented and want to make you feel celebrated so don't hesitate to tell them the look you want. This is an optional service and their prices do vary but on average hair and makeup are around $130.
During our phone consultation, we will also discuss what to bring the day of the shoot. I love that each girl I work with has their own style or something personal they want to bring to the shoot so lets discuss what looks you are interested in for making your shoot your very own. Lingerie is a great start, but so many other accessories can be used to make the shoot unique. I always tell girls if we shoot 3 to 4 looks, let at least one be a classic lingerie look.
I think it is helpful to discuss products that you may be interested in like a photo book during the consultation just in case you are wanting your book by a certain date this way we can plan the shoot accordingly to have enough time to get your book in hand for that special birthday, anniversary, etc. Also we can discuss the book prices and options. They are stunning and a wonderful way to finish out the experience.
The day of the shoot is exciting. When we meet at the location we will pull out your looks and plan out exactly the order of the outfits and accessories. I will guide and pose you throughout the shoot. If there is something you had in mind or a look you loved lets talk about it. I want you to love the work, but otherwise I will help you every step of the way. During the shoot, I will direct the posing and lighting to highlight your body and what you want to show off.
Yes, once your shoot is finished we can sit down and discuss image and product options, and look at some sample photos books while we are together so you can see the materials and options in case you are considering a photo book or other items.
I am always so thrilled to get to share the photos with you when we get to this part in the process. I will send you an online gallery that is password protected. From there you have time to select your 20 or 40 digital edited images or consider purchasing more photos, but this is time for you to enjoy. I do edit the photos you will view on your gallery. I like to keep things natural so I do soften skin, remove blemishes or scar if you desire, but I do not do not change the shape of your body during post production.
If you are interested in creating a book, you will select your favorites and then I can start working on the layout. I will build and design the book with your input and be able have you fully approve the book before purchase. It does take up to 14 business days for the book company to make the books. They are hand crafted and beautiful, so allow for that time when you book your shoot to have the book made. There is a 7 day rush option the book company offers with an additional fee.
Lastly, this process is fun, exciting, bold, and you should enjoy it. I will go to great length for you every step of the way to make sure you are celebrated during your experience!
