What should I consider for my boudoir session?
I offer various collections with different albums, prints, and digital files available for purchase after your session. Clients spend an average of $1,500 for my service and products so in addition that, you may also wish to book a nice hotel, hire a professional hair and make up artist, buy lingerie, shoes, or other accessories, or purchase additional prints and products. It’s important to plan early and budget for all these items.
Where should I do my boudoir photoshoot?
My boudoir studio in Burlingame dedicated for my clients to use at no additional cost. Other locations that works well for boudoir shoots include your own home or a secluded outdoor location. I recommend booking a luxury hotel or a boutique hotel to get the best results because it’s spacious, nicely decorated, free of clutter, and offers plenty of natural light.
How do I book a boudoir session with you?
You can contact me via my contact page on this site and I will send you my pricing details. When you’re ready to book with me, all I require is a signed contract and a $300 non-refundable deposit to show your commitment. Please note that I only shoot with natural light which lends to my style of photography so my last appointment time will vary through out the year depending on the season. No evening shoots are available.
How soon should I schedule my boudoir shoot?
It really depends on the time of year and your flexibility in doing your shoot on a weekday versus a weekend. If you would like to give an album or print to your significant other for an anniversary or a wedding gift, I recommend doing your shoot 6 weeks before your special date. This will give me enough time to retouch all your images, meet for our ordering session, and and create your album. Ultimately, it really depends on the package you choose and the products that’s being offered. The Little Black Book takes about 4 weeks to complete from the date of your shoot, whereas the Boudoir Album and the Bombshell Album will takes about 6-7 weeks from the date of your shoot to finalize, print, and shipped.
Will my images be posted on your site or used as marketing materials?
Absolutely not, unless you’re okay with it! You have the options on how you’d like your images be handled and there are different levels of privacy statements that will suit your comfort level in the contract.
Will you photoshop/touch-up my images?
Yes. I will retouch all your images prior to our ordering session together. Retouching includes skin smoothing, teeth whitening, stretchmarks/blemish removal, removal of flyaways, and sharpening of important details. Additional images beyond the ones states in my package can be retouched as well for a fee.
There are certain parts of my body I am not comfortable with, so can you place less emphasis on areas I am concerned about?
Certainly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and there are certain parts of our bodies that we think are not flattering at all but others might not think the same. I encourage you to let me know which part(s) of your body you’re most proud of, and other part(s) that you may have concerns about. This way I can prepare poses that flatters your body type.
Do I need to bring my own outfits?
I have some lingerie, accessories, and shoes available but sizes are limited so please bring your own outfits for your shoot.
When and how do I view my images?
Your beautiful photos will be ready 2-3 weeks after your shoot during our in person ordering session. From there you will select your favorites for your album. Final product delivery will take approximately 2-4 weeks depending on the package and album chosen.
When can I expect to receive my album?
Digital files are available immediately after our in person ordering session together. The 5×5 Little Black Book takes 2 weeks from your approval date. The 6×8 Petite Album Boudoir Album and the 8×8 Boudoir Album takes 3 weeks from your approval date. The 8×12 Fine Art Album takes 4 weeks from your approval date.
