Meet the Photographer
My name is Paytn Blanke. I am a Boudoir Photographer whose goal is to empower every woman I have the opportunity to work with. I truly believe any woman or couple should experience a Boudoir Session - no matter their age, shape or size. Not only does it help you overcome the fear of being vulnerable in front of a stranger, but you get to take away something from it as well. You can say that YOU did it. You can look at your body in a way you've never experienced before. You can gain that confidence boost you've been searching for. A Boudoir Session if above all for YOU and only YOU! If you have a significant other who will be receiving these as a gift, that's just a bonus, because you are giving a gift to yourself by biting the bullet and booking the session. I love being able to witness this experience and the change that happens with the babes I work with.
I pride myself in the level of professionalism I maintain while keeping it light and fun. It's important for you to feel completely comfortable throughout your entire Boudoir Experience - I have yet to have a complaint. In fact, I've watched more women transform from "I'm so Nervous, I hate my body" to "Wow that's ME?!" than I could have ever imagined (over 200!). Not only am I empowering women, but I am empowering myself by witnessing these changes in attitude and self confidence.
Book a Free Preshoot Consultation & Let's Chat More!
How do I book a session?
Simple! Book a free pre-shoot consultation. We'll chat about what you're looking for, what you can expect from me and your experience, collections, sample products, studio tour and more. I can answer all of your questions right there. At the end, if you're ready, we can pick out your session date, collection, payment option for your collection and have you pay the session fee. After all of that is finished and the contract is signed, your session is fully booked and in my calendar.
Do you offer payment plans?
Of course! I offer in house prepayment plans up to 12 months. I know the price can be overwhelming (but so worth it) at first for some. I want to give every babe a chance to walk out of my doors feeling like a million bucks, which is why I offer these. If you have questions about setting up a payment plan, fill out a contact form or sign up for a free pre-shoot consultation.
How much does it cost?
Your session fee that is used to hold the date, time and details of your session is $399. This does not include any products or images. Collections begin at $1187. Each collection comes with bonus options! Check them out HERE.
Are you going to share my images?
That is completely up to you. I have a model release with multiple different options (including do not share) that you will sign at your reveal after seeing your image. BUT, if you are signing up for a Boudie Call, you are signing a full model release allowing me to share your images, in exchange for a waved session fee.
When will I see my images?
If you are doing an indoor studio session: You will see your images 30-60 minutes after the photoshoot portion of your session.
If you are doing an outdoor session: We shoot at sunset, so we can meet back at the studio the next morning, or on a different day that works best for you.
Can I do my own hair and makeup?
I highly recommend using one of my amazing artists! You'll be able to sit back, relax and feel pampered before the photoshoot portion of your session. Plus, you'll have less to worry about in the morning.
Where are you located?
My studio is located in Sheboygan Falls. I have private outdoor locations in Elkhart Lake and Plymouth.
Can I bring a friend?
If you feel more comfortable with a friend there, I won't deny them! Your comfort is always my number once concern. I allow one chaperone, but ask that they respect myself, my art, my space, process and you.
When do I receive my images back?
You will receive your images and products back 6-8 weeks after I have received full payment.
Do I have to get naked?
Absolutely not, but you might want to at the end if you're feeling nervous now. At the very end of your session I'll ask if you'd like to do any full nude or partial nude images. We will also discuss this prior to your session. So, if partial or full nudity is something you're wanting often throughout, we can definitely do that.
I am worried about posing, do you help?
Heck yes! Throughout the entire session I will be there coaching and cheering you on. I get into every pose before you. Once you're in the pose, I'll tweak you so you look your absolute best. Every once in a while you'll see a sneak peek on the back of my camera to show you just how AMAZING you look.
I have no idea what to do about lingerie?
Prior to your session you will be sent a few links to my favorite lingerie shops as well as my Amazon list. You are more than welcome to bring a duffle bag of items along and I will help you sort through and decide. If you're feeling nervous bring a t-shirt, button up or sweater for the first few images. I also offer a client closet of sizes XS-3X that you are more than welcome to.
Should I tan?
Please no spray tans 4-6 weeks prior to your session. They stain bedding, furniture, clothing and more. Please also try to refrain from using a tanning bed 2 weeks prior to your session, as it does not photograph well.
What if I don't have a S/O?
This session is for YOU. There is no need to have a significant other or someone to gift these. Do it for YOU! Because you deserve it.
Do I have to Prepay?
Yes. A prepayment plan or full prepayment is required when booking your boudoir photoshoot.
