Top 12 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Boudoir Photography
The thought of a boudoir session can be a scary thing for a lot of women. There are a list of questions that I get asked so often I thought I would answer them here and share them with everyone. If I didn’t answer your question here, please send me a message and I will answer any questions you may have.
1. Will you share my images?
I will only share your images if that is what you want. If you don’t want your images on our website, or social media that is totally fine with me. This decision is yours to make. I 100% respect any decision you make!! Some women want to share their images because it helps other women see that they can do it too. That they are beautiful and should love themselves in this empowering experience. Other woman want to keep the images for just themselves and or their partner. What ever your reason, I will honour that.
2. Do I have to wear lingerie?
You absolutely do not have to wear lingerie. The options are endless. I have some people bring in dresses, jean jackets, faux fur and body suits. It’s all up to you and the vibe you want to create at your session. We can set up a call before your session and I can help you figure out outfits.
3. Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I offer a few different options. There is a retainer fee that is due at the time of booking to secure your date and time. You can pay that in full or you can pay half, the the other half is due 2 weeks before your shoot date. If you would like to payment plan for the retainer and need more time, we can book your shoot a few months out and that way we can schedule a payment plan that suits your needs. I also offer payment plans for the products that you would like to purchase. We can discuss this in more detail at your consult.
