HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?
We can almost always accept last minute bookings, however we can not guarantee it. It is recommend to book your appointment at least one week in advance. A $100 retainer is required at the time of scheduling to book your studio time and date.
Where are you based and do you travel?
We are Tucson Arizona based, and yes we love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come. out of state will require some planning, so book early.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!
CAN I REQUEST PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP FOR MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?
We find that most women we have photographed prefer to do their own makeup, or schedule an appointment with a local makeup counter prior to their scheduled photo shoot. Unfortunately we do not offer makeup or provide makeup or hair styling for our boudoir photo shoots.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELATION POLICY?
Cancelations or rescheduling must be done in writing at least 48 hours before your appointment time to receive a full refund of your retainer.
Your retainer is not refundable if you fail to show up for a scheduled appointment, cancel, or reschedule with less than 48 hours notice..
WHERE WILL MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
Our amazing home, boudoir studio is located about 10 miles past Casino Del Sol. We utilize our home, so we can offer a variety of locations to shoot from, plus back drops and green screening.
You can choose an offsite location, like your home or a hotel instead, but it must be within a 30 minute drive from Casino Del Sol and there is an additional fee of $100, plus the cost of the rented room.
Preparation: SHOULD I PRACTICE POSING FOR MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?
This gets asked quite a bit, however practice is not necessary. We are professional photographers and we will highlight the areas of your body that you, or your significant other loves and make them look great. We will also give you tips and suggestions to make you look and feel the best.
HOW MUCH SKIN WILL I BE EXPECTED TO SHOW? WHAT STYLE OF BOUDOIR SHOTS DO YOU TAKE?
This is entirely up to you. You have full control over how much you do (or do not) show off in your boudoir shoot. We offer a number of different photography styles. Your shots can take their look from a men’s magazine (anything from Maxim to Playboy) or a even a Victoria’s Secret catalog. If you do not want to show a lot of skin, we also offer sexy glamour photography. Your photographs will look like an image straight out of Vogue magazine. Whatever style you choose, you can be as provocative or modest as you like. This is all about making you feel comfortable, sexy, and happy with the end result!
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WOMEN OF ALL AGES (EVEN THOSE OF US WHO ARE NOT 20-YEAR-OLD MODELS)?
Whether you’re 20 or 60, our glamour boudoir shoot will bring out your inner diva and make you look HOT. We will work with you step-by-step, helping you strike the right poses, and move your body to capture the perfect photo.
The Shoot: HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE PRESENT FOR MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?
Your privacy is ALWAYS respected, and that includes before, during and after your boudoir shoot. Unless you have requested the presence of a hair/makeup stylist or someone else, the only people on set will be you and Mike and Melissa, or if you are more comfortable with just a female you can request to have just Melissa take your photos.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Absolutely! In many cases, bringing a friend along is a great way to loosen up and have some fun. But be warned: Some women find that they feel LESS comfortable with other people watching, even close friends. So try to think objectively about how it would really make you feel before extending the invitation.
WILL MY BOUDOIR PHOTOS BE RETOUCHED TO HIDE IMPERFECTIONS LIKE STRETCH MARKS AND BLEMISHES?
Yes! We will start by posing you properly to hide anything you do not want to show, and our magazine-quality lighting will also help hide any wrinkles, blemishes, spots or bruises from the camera. Anything that does get through can be addressed with our professional glamour retouching. With that process, we will smooth your skin, remove stray hairs and help you lose a digital pound or two. You will look sexy, glamorous and most important, like a real woman. Our goal is to bring out the beauty that is already there and keep you looking natural and fresh, not like a plastic doll.
