boudoir photography faq

What is Boudoir Photography:
Boudoir photography is a style of photography style in which women pose for photographs partially clothed or in lingerie. The photos are tasteful and nudity is typically implied rather than explicit. They are sensual and sexy as well as classy and elegant.

Will my photos be on the internet:

Not unless you want them to be.  All of the woman featured on my site and social media have given their written consent.  I take your privacy very seriously. See our privacy policy.

How long has your studio been in business: 

Our small private studio has been in business since 2007, we are an LLC and are fully insured.

Do I bring my own lingerie or do you provide the outfits:

You need to bring your own lingerie to the photo shoot.  Be sure to select lingerie that you feel sexy in and that fits properly and that also compliments your body type.  Nothing can ruin your session faster than lingerie that does not fit correctly. If you have questions about clothing do not be afraid to ask !  That is what I am here for.

Do you offer hair and makeup services:

I do offer hair and makeup services here at the studio. Hair and/or Makeup services can be added on to any session.  While I do not require you have your hair and makeup professionally done, I HIGHLY suggest it ! Most women do not know how to do their makeup for everyday uses, let alone for camera and lighting. 


Can I bring a friend with me to my shoot?

ABSOLUTELY !  Everything is more fun with a friend.  Just make sure it is a female friend and please be sure she is supportive of what you are doing.  Also no cell phone pictures are allowed during your session.

Do I have to be nude during my session?

Absolutely not, sessions are tailored to your comfort level. You should wear as little or as much clothing as you need to feel comfortable

Are there any printed/ digital/ albums included with my session fee:

NO,  all products are purchased a la carte after your session.

Do I have to decide what album I want when I book my session?

No you do not. You will not decide what album you want until after you see your proofs

What if I do not like my images:

Then you have no further obligation to purchase.

Do you offer payment Plans?

Yes we do ! But your product will not be delivered until it is paid in full.

I don't have a perfect body, can I still do a boudoir photo shoot?

Of course !  All bodies are beautiful. It is my job as your photographer to put  you in poses that are flattering to your body type.

Where will my session take place:

Your session will take place at my studio in Crown Point, Indiana. We are conveniently located just 40 minutes from downtown Chicago.  If you choose to have your session in another city, it will take place in a hotel suite.  Additional rates may apply if session is done outside the studio.
