YOUR BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE BROKEN DOWN
I KNOW THIS IS A LOT OF INFORMATION
BUT PLEASE READ EVERYTHING.
These sessions are very involved and take around 4-5 hours total.
FIRST THING'S FIRST
YOUR COLLECTION CHOICE
The first thing we will do is figure out which collection is best for you!
You're more than welcome to upgrade anytime between booking and your reveal.
I have 3 different payment options...
1. Pay in full when booking and receive an additional 5% off of your collection purchase. This can be done with cash, check, Paypal, credit or debit card.
2. Non-Boudie Call: Get on an in house prepayment plan. You choose how long you'd like it to last (2-12 months), and have your session date booked once your payment plan is complete.
3. Boudie Call: Get on an in house prepayment plan. You choose how long you'd like it to last (2-12 months), and have your session date booked as early as you'd like. However, you will not receive any images or products until your payment plan is complete.
If you chose a Boudie Call, your nonrefundable session retainer is being waved for a weekday session. A weekend session would be a $99 nonrefundable retainer. These discounts are given in exchange for you signing a full model release, allowing me to share the images/videos from your session.
If you don't want your images shared, that's okay! Just book a regular session.
DO I HAVE TO PICK A COLLECTION & PREPAY?
Yes. Prepayment is a requirement when booking.
PICKING YOUR DATE
ONCE WE'VE DECIDED ON A COLLECTION & PAYMENT PLAN...
We will choose a date that works best for you!
I will send you options based off of the days of the week that work best for you. From there you can decide which date you'd like.
I offer $100 off of your session fee if you choose a weekday, but do have weekends open as well if you absolutely need it.
No images/products are given until full payment has been received. Once full payment is received, or if you've paid by the time of your session, I asked for 6-8 weeks to get your digital and physical product back. Please keep this in mind if you need your images/products back by a certain date.
These are done at 11:30am/12pm late fall - early spring & 2pm in Summer.
These start around 4/430pm. You will get hair and makeup done at my studio and then we will head to the outdoor location.
CAN I DO ANY OTHER TIME?
No. These are the times that are going to give us the best lighting!
GETTING OFFICIALLY BOOKED
YOUR SESSION IS NOT CONFIRMED UNTIL...
- You've signed your contract.
- You've signed your prepayment plan form (if you are doing one).
- You've signed your model release contract (if you are doing a Boudie Call).
- You've payed your nonrefundable session retainer.
When all of this is done... You're officially booked!
ONCE YOU'RE BOOKED
A FEW EMAILS HERE AND THERE...
You'll receive a few emails from me between booking and your session time. They are mainly to give you more information and prepare you for your boudoir session, but there are 2 emails you need to respond to.
A questionnaire email will be sent, where you can fill out my preshoot questionnaire form to help me better customize your session.
A confirmation email will be sent a few weeks before your session, to make sure we are good to go.
PREPPING FOR YOUR SESSION
You will receive a do and don't email from me. This is important to look at, so you know what is and what isn't recommended. Things like tanning, nails, hair, etc.
You are more than welcome to shop for lingerie. You will be sent some of my favorite places to shop. However, it's not required. I do have a client closet (XS-3X) that you are more than welcome to use. I also have fishnets, body harnesses and some heels.
If you're feeling nervous, it would be a good idea to start out in something less revealing. Bring a tshirt, sweater, button up, etc. to help those nerves melt away and prepare you for less clothes.
THE DAY OF YOUR SESSION
Come in comfy clothes! Preferable not tight jeans or leggings, so you don't have lines all over your body.
Come with a clean face and DRY HAIR. My makeup artists will do the rest.
Bring whatever you have packed! Jewelry, heels, outfits, etc.
We will go through your bag first, and then have you go through the client closet options I have pulled. This will help give my artist an idea for makeup.
You are more than welcome to grab and try on whatever I have pulled for you from my client closet. If you don't like something, you don't have to wear it. Simply, toss is in my hamper so I can wash it.
Hair and makeup takes around 45minutes - 1.5 hours, depending on the look you're going for. My artists can do anything from natural to glam, no lashes or lashes, and will make changes at the end if there's something you don't like. Your hair will be get a simple curl or be straightened, as I'll have you running your hands through it during the photoshoot.
These last around an hour. They are not timed, so don't feel like you need to rush when changing or posing. I'll make sure we've gotten everything both of us are looking for!
I'll get into every pose before you do, to show you exactly what I'm looking for. Once you're in the pose I'll tweak you to make sure you're looking your absolute best!
You'll see the back of my camera from time to time, just to show you how well the session is going, and how gorgeous you look!
INDOOR STUDIO SESSIONS
Reveals are done the same day of a studio session.
Once we are finished with the photoshoot portion, we will break for 30-60 minutes while I cull and lightly edit your images. You are more than welcome to hang out at the studio with me, or leave to grab food, a drink or run an errand. I just ask that you come back in about an hour.
You'll be able to view and pick your images on my flat screen TV.
Reveals are done the next day, or a day that works best for you after your session date. This is done because we shoot during sunset, and I don't want to keep you until 10/11pm.
These reveals are also done at my studio. You'll be able to view and pick your images on my flat screen TV.
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.
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.
