What is boudoir photo shoot about?
Boudoir photography is a photographic style featuring intimate, romantic, and sometimes erotic images of its subjects in a bedroom or private dressing room environment or lately – anywhere else you could imagine, primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and his or her romantic partners. It is distinct from glamour and art nude photography in that it is usually more suggestive rather than explicit in its approach to nudity and sexuality, features subjects who do not regularly model and produces images which are not intended to be seen by a wide audience, but rather to remain under the control of the subject.
I am nervous, I never done boudoir photo shoot before!
That is totally fine! It can be really stressful just thinking of idea to getting vulnerable in front of a stranger. Being in just a bedroom attire. Expressing your emotions. But – we got your back. We are all female team, who are highly trained and experienced with someone just like you. We will do anything in our power to keep you comfortable and relaxed. We will show you the poses – we will never make you do anything we would not be comfortable doing ourselves.
I am concerned about a certain body area I do not like..
Don’t we all? This is totally fine! We are highly trained to choose only the most flattering posing. During your boudoir photo shoot we can work the magic not to show your least favorite assets.
Do I have to be a model?
Not at all! Most of our clients have never done boudoir photo shoot before. In fact – most of them have never done any professional photos before. We will guide you through the entire process. That includes helping you to prepare for your session, styling ideas, posing, looks and facial expressions.
Do I have to bring my own wardrobe/accessories?
Clients do bring their own outfits, shoes and accessories. If you have questions and concerns about the outfits – please do not hesitate to contact us and we can chat more about the looks and give you some suggestions and ideas. However – we do have a collection of fun jewelry and accessories available to use during the session, but please make sure to contact us prior to your photosession so that arrangements can be made to have them available during your boudoir photo shoot.
What about Hair and Makeup?
We strongly recommend getting a professional Hair and Makeup done for your boudoir photo shoot. Every day make up application is not the same as boudoir photo session specialized one. All of our pre-paid Luxury Collections include professional Hair and Makeup application by one of our wonderful Make Up and Hair Artists. If you decide to pay for the boudoir photo shoot only and choose your collection or a la carte items later – we can arrange Hair and Makeup service for you for an additional fee, but they will not be included in your session fee. You will also have an option too arrange Hair and Make Up service yourself.
Where are the sessions held? Can I choose my own location?
Boudoir photo shoots are held in a professional photography studio. Special arrangements can be made for a boudoir photo shoot at your desired location. All expenses related to the locations other than designated studio will be responsibility of the client.
Do you travel out of State? I am travelling – can you go on location with me? I would love boudoir photo shoot on location!
Yes! Kristina is does take out of State and out of country bookings. Whether you are travelling in US or oversees – Kristina has her passport and suitcases ready! To make an arrangements and find out travelling photography rates – please contact us.
Do you book Bachelorette parties – or a girls night out parties for multiple women at the time? Private bookings?
Yes! Special arrangements can be made to book the entire studio – for you and your girlfriends! Please contact me about the rates and availability.
Can I do nudes?
Yes you can! During your boudoir photo shoot you can show as much or as little as you want.
Do I have to get naked?
No! Each boudoir photo shoot is tailored to clients wishes – no two sessions are identical. You can show as much or as little as you desire.
I am really pale – should I go spray tanning?
No. Spray tans are not a great idea. They do not look natural in photos, you end up with tan lines, missed spots (usually around the booty), streaks and orange, flaky, scaly looking color skin. Patchy dark spots occur around feet and hands, and in spots where clothing rubs against your skin. Our skin retouching does not include fixing these issues. If you would like those additional adjustments to be made – there will be a charge per photo. Tinted moisturizers and self tanners are not permitted in our professional boudoir studio because they leave permanent marks on the furniture.
I have props/toys I would like to bring..
Bring them on! We want to make each session unique and special to you. We are highly experienced with all kinds of boudoir photo shoots, and we have worked with a great variety of props. Whatever it is – to make your boudoir photo shoot very special to you.
I am not a girly girl – do I have to bring lingerie – I never wear it?..
The great thing about our boudoir photo shoots – is that we want you to be you! You are sexy as you are. Do you love plain T-shirt look, sporty, nerdy, preppy, Gothic, boyish, cosplay? Awesome – bring it on! This is all about you.
I have a baby, can I bring her/him along?..
In order to keep you distraction free and completely relaxed – we do not allow children to be present during your boudoir photo shoot and during viewing and ordering appointment.
Can my significant other / partner be present during the photosession?
In order to keep completely relaxed and stress free during the photosession – we do not allow significant other or partner to be present during the photosession time.
Can I bring a friend to my photosession?
Bringing one female friend to your photosession is acceptable – although – we want you to be 100% relaxed during the photosession. Think about this as a very personal and intimate experience – would you bring your friend into your bedroom? Are you 100% comfortable with her seeing you posing naked from a various angles? Is she discreet, helpful and supportive? It is totally up to you if you would like yo bring someone along.
Privacy and security. I do not want my photos to be published or seen by anyone else..
Your privacy is a number one concern to us. We will never post or show your photos to anyone, unless you would like your photos to be featured. Your photos are kept in one computer only during the retouching process. Transferring files online or importing – exporting to various retouching and online gallery servers and sites increases risk of your photos being exposed and mishandled. We strive to minimize any risks to compromise your privacy. For an additional fee arrangements can be made to keeping your photos in an offline computer exclusively.
I am concerned about cleanliness..
Your safety and comfort is very important to us. We provide each client with fresh clean white sheet to pose on. All surfaces are cleaned and sanitized between the sessions.
I am still not sure about this..
It is ok! Please join our VIP Facebook group that is for ladies only. There you can see more of our recent work, behind the scenes, be the first one to find out about promotions and specials – most of our clients are in the group. Feel free to ask them questions! Feel free to contact us with any of your questions or concerns. We are here to help!
