I am not a model, the women on your website look like models… Can I do this?
The answer is YES! The women on my website are not models and they also had the SAME doubts you are having right now. I have more than 6 years experience photographing women. I know what I am doing. You can trust me! You will also look like a model.
You don’t have to know what you are doing in the slightest. I will direct you every step of the way, from helping to you prepare for your photo shoot with wardrobe tips, to posing head-to-toe. You just need to show up and TRUST ME.
How far in advance should I book?
The rule of thumbs is at least 5 weeks in advance. WHY!? It takes a week for you to see your photos after the photo shoot and another 2 weeks for final product be ready, BUT sometimes I can accommodate urgent cases – depending on the urgency a fee would be applied. For availability and questions please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
How much does it costs? How much should I expect to spend?
The basic package is 175 which includes one A4 print (and the same photo in Digital) but to be honest no one comes in for only one photo and they end up upgrading to a bigger package.. YES!!! When they see the photos they are so surprised they can’t get only one photo. On average they spent around 450+.
You can learn more about prices and packages here.
When and How will I select my photos?
We have 2 options for you.. You can come back to the studio for a viewing session and I help you to choose your photos and/or products OR I can send you a private online gallery (with a password) for you to choose the photos on your own. Both options will be a week after your photo experience.
I am a very private person. Will my photos be published?
I respect my client’s privacy 100%. No photo is published on my website or social media without my clients (or models, by model I mean women who poses for me in exchange for photos when I need content to show my work)) giving me permission by signing a model release. I don’t even use an outside resource to print your photos, leaving your photos vulnerable, I do everything in house. If you are not coming to the studio for your viewing, instead you will get the online gallery to choose your photos the password for that gallery is sent on a separate email and only you will have access to it.
It always makes me happy when a client allows me to publish their photos as It helps me to empower other women however I don’t pressure you at all to allow me to use your photos. It is totally up to you!
Where will my Boudoir Session take place? Do you have a Studio?
Yes! I do have a beautiful studio located on Grafton Street, right in the middle of Dublin town. I also still have my old space, a beautiful and modern pen house located in the Temple Bar, but this location has a 200 fee on top of your package.
What should I wear?
This is probably the most popular question I get….and the answer is simple…whatever you feel beautiful in. A bodysuit, an oversized sweater, cropped sweatshirt and high waist panties, a robe, sleep shirt…anything you feel comfortable in. Some clients opt for lingerie. And many clients choose to do a nude set during their session. In a 1-2hours photo session, you will typically have time for up to 5 “looks” or outfits (“nude” counts as an outfit)! Don’t stress to much about wardrobe. I could (and have!) spend an entire hour shooting a client with no other wardrobe than the bed sheets and the photos look amazing!
For more info make sure you check out www.boudoir.ie/info .. Here you will also find info on how to get ready for your photo session.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes! Of course you can bring a friend with you. My only suggestion is that your friend is a female friend. If it is a boyfriend, partner I request he/she stays in the office while we are at the studio photographing.
Please make sure your friend is a good friend .. you know what I mean! 😀 The last thing you want is a jealous friend ruining your experience.
I do ask your friend do not interfere with the photo shoot in any way – no directing, touching up, etc – as I am there to guide you through out the whole experience.
How much retouching do you do!? What are your policy about Photoshop/Editing?!
I wish we lived in a world where women didn’t think about editing or didn’t want to be retouched BUT I totally understand if you want me to retouch your photos (to any extend).
I am professional totally capable to make the photos look like from a magazine so you don’t need to worry about the little bits you don’t want to show.
Please discuss with me if there is anything specific you want me to change.
Do you photography men?
No! I don’t offer a Boudoir Experience for men. I do however photograph couples.
I also not prepared to offer the experience to T-girls.
