It is important to go into a boudoir photoshoot with realistic expectations, and not set yourself up for disappointment. I want you to be prepared in every way possible so you can feel as confident as possible going into your session.
The day before the shoot
Please make sure the location is tidy, clean, and ready for our arrival. If you need any help preparing the location, please let me know. If you are having a location shoot please check the weather forecast and if it’s possible to still have a successful shoot outside when needed! Please confirm with me where you will meet us on the day of the shoot.
On the day of the shoot
If we are shooting in your office/home or other private space, please allow us free and unrestricted access to all areas that we will be photographing, including restrooms, etc. If we are shooting at another public place such as a park, beach, or other outdoor areas, we will require the same level of access to those areas as any other member of the public would have.
Be on time. In order to ensure we have enough time for hair, makeup, and all of your outfits, it is important to arrive on time for your shoot. This will also prevent any stress and anxiety over running late, which will help you relax even more.
Bring the right clothing. You are the one who knows what looks best on you and what makes you comfortable! I always recommend bringing at least a couple of different options that can showcase different styles or looks (something a little more casual or sexy). If you’re not sure what to bring, I offer personal shopping assistance before your shoot!
Have an open mind. Ultimately, this is the job of a photographer: to guide you through the entire process and make sure that you are feeling beautiful during every second of your session. You will be given pose directions and other instructions.
How long does a photoshoot take?
There is no right answer to this question as every photo session is unique, and it all depends on the type of photography you're interested in.
A headshot session can take as little as 20 minutes, while a product or group photoshoot can take up to 2 hours.
You will always have the opportunity to discuss the timing of your photo session with your photographer.
Some clients have a good idea of what they want, whereas others aren't sure. The more information the photographer has the better. Always start off meetings with a brief outline to help define ideas and expectations and ensure everyone is on the same page at the outset. Many times I've found that when photographers provide that initial overview, it can be a quick way for us both to move forward and achieve the desired results.
