The Boudoir Session Start To Finish: How To Prepare For Your Shoot
The day of your shoot has finally arrived and you might be wondering what exactly will be happening for the next 3 hours. We like to provide our clients enough information to make sure they feel prepared and ready on shoot day. So instead of feeling nervous, our clients arrive at the studio excited and ready to go.
The first thing we do when you arrive is to set out your outfits in the dressing room.
Seeing everything you brought with you laid out will give us an idea of how to plan the shoot ahead. We have a variety of sets in the studio and match up your looks to pair well with each set. For example, the blue studio sofa works well with a bright color like red or a complimentary hue like green. It also features some great full length shots from behind so having lingerie with some good detail on the butt is perfect for this set.
The next step is to get you in the beauty chair.
The next hour is a pampering makeover by the team at Beauty Art District. If you have saved some photos for inspiration, the team can look them over to ensure you have a look that you love. If you have no idea, no problem! The team are true professionals and will work their magic. s a final touch, every client gets lashes! I promise, when you see the finished look in the mirror, you will be amazed!
The final step is the shoot.
The beauty team will have packed up and left. From this point on, it will just be you and Kellie for the next couple of hours. Kellie will shoot each of your looks on each set making sure to get all of those favorite shots that clients love. Don’t worry if you have no idea how to look sexy or pose –– she will guide you every step of the way!
Did you know that hands are actually the hardest things to pose in a photograph? Details like this are why you hired a professional photographer! And Kellie will make sure those toes are pointed and hands are relaxed. Kellie also will show you the pose first to give you an idea of how to get started and then tweak each pose a bit to create a variety of looks.
Now you’ve done the shoot, what next?
The studio takes about a week to choose your best images and put the finishing touches on them. Photo viewing sessions take place the following weekend (7-10 days after your shoot) and can be scheduled 10am-4pm on Saturday or Sunday.
The viewing takes about an hour. You’ll see about 80-100 fully retouched photos to choose from. You only buy the photos you love! Kellie will put any final edits on your selections and custom design your album layout. Albums take anywhere from 10 days to 4 weeks depending on the album style you select. Our luxury album packages are handcrafted in Portugal and require a bit more time to receive. If you need something sooner, we still offer a stunning leather book that is customizable and will be shipped within 7 days of ordering.
