Our Boudoir sessions are relaxed and with body confidence in mind. I use a combination of amazing lighting and simple but striking poses to create amazing images that will make you look and feel like the stunning individual that you are.
Your experience will last around an hour in our awesome new studio at the Via Gellia Mill near Matlock and hair and makeup can be included at an extra cost, please let us know if you require this service.
After your shoot you will be booked back in for a no pressure viewing of your amazing new photos where you will be given the opportunity to choose your favourites that will come along with your package and any others you may want.
We have put together some frequently asked questions
Do I need to pay in full?
No at the time of booking we take a £25 none refundable deposit the remaining balance is due on the day. For shoots with the hair & makeup included we do ask for this to be paid for in advance If you would like to pay in full just let us know when you book.
Will I need to bring ID?
If you are one of those lucky people who look under 25 then yes I will require ID as Boudoir sessions are for over 18’s only so don’t forget to bring it along.
Can I see more photos you have done?
Unfortunately not as Boudoir is a highly personal thing most clients do not want to show their photos to other people and I totally respect this. As clients kindly allow me to show their photos I will add more to the website.
Are the models you have used on your website professionals?
No all of the people I have displayed have little or no experience in front of a camera
Am I the wrong shape or too old for a Boudoir shoot?
Absolutely not there is no such thing as the wrong body just the wrong photographer, we promote body confidence at my photography studio, no matter your shape, size, height or age I will always make sure you always come away from the shoots feeling amazing.
I am really worried; will I be able to do a photoshoot?
I know it’s a scary thought being in front of the camera let alone when you are in your underwear, but I am easy to work with and it’s my job to put you at ease and feel comfortable. I am also happy to have a meeting with you before your shoot to go through what it will entail and to help put you at ease.
Do I need to book an appointment?
Yes, Boudoir sessions are by appointment only, this will be around 2 to 3 hours. I will invoice you for a £25 nonrefundable deposit to secure your chosen time and date. If you do have to move your booking just let me know and I will rearrange it for you.
Can I buy a shoot for other people?
You may purchase a gift voucher for people to use for a Boudoir shoot but as it is highly personal it will be up to them if they want to use it against the shoot or against another photographic product.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes, please feel free to bring along a friend if this will help make you feel more comfortable as long as your friend doesn’t distract you or the photographer, or stylist if one has been booked.
Will you use my photos on your website?
Not without your permission, if you are happy for me to use them that’s great if not then that’s great too there isn’t any pressure and I will discuss this with you at the shoot.
Is makeup & hair included?
We do have contacts with a local hair and makeup salon who are happy to attend our studio on the day of your shoot, this does need to be booked in advance and is an additional cost.
What should I wear?
Bring along your favorite lingerie sets in different styles and colours just make sure they fit and support you well. It is also worth bringing along any high heels and jewelry, silk dressing gowns / kimonos, lace blouse etc. Also if you have any personal items you would like to bring along for example football shirts, or items that belong to your other half if it is going to be a gift.
Do I need to get naked?
No not if you don’t want to, some people want to and that is fine but if you don’t then it’s up to you we can always do implied nudes where it just looks like you have nothing on.
Is the posing difficult?
As a general rule no, I am very much an advocate of keep it simple however there will be certain poses that will require you to twist and or arch so be prepared for that. Also we have look books that you can check out at the shoot that have loads of different poses for you to try. You can also take a look at Pintrest this is a great place for a bit of inspiration.
When will I see my photos?
You will be invited back to the studio for a private viewing of your photos around 2 weeks after your shoot. You will be able to choose your favourite as part of your package and any additional photos you may want to purchase
Do you airbrush the images?
I can if you want me too, I will discuss this at the shoot on exactly how much editing will take place. No editing will take place that will change your appearance, you will still look like you and any airbrushing will be limited to what a good makeup artist wouldn’t be able to do. If there are any scars or tattoos you would like removing please let me know.
What happens if I need to cancel?
We understand things sometimes happen beyond our control and if you do need to cancel then please let us know ideally within 48 hours. We will make every effort to re-book you back in for another suitable date. In the event you cannot find another suitable date your booking fee will be retained.
I have had a gift voucher purchased can I swap this to just a makeover session?
Of course this is no problem at all, our Boudoir and Makeover sessions are very similar just the main difference being the clothing that you would wear.
We look forward to welcoming you to our studio and creating an unforgettable experience. To make a booking enquiry please fill out the form below:
