So, what exactly is included in the boudoir experience?
In person consultation and planning gives us an opportunity to chat and get to know each other a little before the shoot, also for me to understand how would you like to be photographed, what look / feel you’re going for. We plan a timeline and bounce off outfit and accessories ideas to make sure you’ll be 100% happy with what we create.
Professional make-up and hair styling. I’m working with a team of highly skilled (and super lovely!) make-up artists who will create the perfect camera-ready look for you.
Most of the sessions are taking place in my Bristol home studio, but there is also an option to have your boudoir shoot at an external location (like your home, a boutique hotel or outdoors if you’re feeling adventurous!)
Professional photography and posing. You do not need to know how to pose or worry about how you’re going to look like on your images at all! I am an expert at making people relax and open up in front of the camera also to guide you with posing down to your fingertips to make sure you look your best. I’ll show you what poses and angles flatter you the most and be your coach every step of the way. No experience necessary, you just need to trust me to give it a go.
Boudoir photography sessions are usually takes about three hours. This gives us enough time to create the beautiful hair- and make-up and also a variety of outfits and backgrounds to photograph, but not too long so you won’t feel exhausted. I say this to my clients all the time – a boudoir shoot is like a workout! The number of outfits is not limited, though I usually recommend 3-4 max for the best results.
Professional retouching on all your best images is included with your session. I don’t believe in drastically altering your appearance or body type, I believe all my customers are perfectly beautiful just the way they are. I do believe in small tweaks however, to get rid of the things you are not fond of and/or correcting the bits (lumps and bumps) that appear due to wardrobe or posing. This is a collaborative process, so please don’t be shy about telling me to get rid of a certain mole or scar or stretchmark.
About two weeks after your photo session we meet up again for a private viewing and selection of your final images. After the initial presentation, we’ll step through the images one by one and start picking favourites. Following that, we’ll determine which products and packages will suit you best based on the images we’ve created, your goals for the shoot, and on your lifestyle. I offer a range of beautiful photographic albums, archival wall art, high resolution digital image packages, and more. I also have great options for gift giving, whether you’re buying for a groom or bride, a significant other, or as a treat to yourself.
