Frequently Asked Questions About Boudoir Photography

I'm really nervous. Is that normal?

It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir session, so don't worry. Most of our clients are nervous until the session has gone on for a few minutes. After it starts, you’ll begin to loosen up. We provide quite a few guides and helpful tricks and tips that go over just about anything you can imagine before your session straight to your email once your session is booked!


How do I know how to pose?

Don’t worry about posing. Kayla is a posing expert. We've totally got you covered in that department. We know all the tricks to create the most flattering angles for you, no matter what shape or size you are.


Do your packages include hair and makeup?

Absolutely! We have an AMAZING hair and makeup team who will pamper you on your exciting day!


Am I allowed to bring alcohol to help loosen my nerves?

As long as you're over 21, that’s totally fine with us. We do offer champagne or wine at your session to help you relax while you get pampered by your awesome HMUA Team. However we do have a strict policy on remaining fully coherent at your session.


I want share these pictures with my partner, but I don't want loose prints floating around. Any ideas for the best gift?

This is a very common concern and we totally understand. We recommend placing an order for one of our albums. This is much more discreet and will keep all of your images in one place and not floating around. We also offer folios and accordion albums as well.


What should I bring to my boudoir session?

For our sessions, our motto is "When in doubt, bring it!" we suggest bringing two to three different outfits. We do also have an amazing client wardrobe you are welcome to browse through that is included with your Session!


Can I bring a friend?

Guests are allowed if the client feels it would make them more comfortable, However we always like to advise that sometimes when guests are present, they can have an adverse effect and actually make the client a bit more nervous and distracted. We will never tell a client they are not allowed to bring a friend if it makes them feel safe.


Will my session be with a male or female photographer?

We are a husband and wife team, and Ric is a trained professional, However we understand that this is intimate photography and you are allowed to request for solely Kayla to shoot your session.


Do you do touchups?

Yes, we will smooth skin and do some basic retouching on all of your portraits.


I’m not a model – are boudoir photos still flattering even if my body isn’t perfect?

Absolutely! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy. If you have any specific concerns, contact us and we can talk about it!


Do you do outdoor boudoir sessions?

Yes we are always open to doing outdoor sessions, However we do not have any private outdoor property to offer any implied or nude shoots. Any shoots outdoors must be clothed (in lingerie) unless you (the client) have a private secluded area for your session.


Do I have control over who sees my images?

Yes, most certainly. We will only share photos if you have given us permission and have approved the images for sharing. We respect your wishes and won't post or share any images if you’d prefer they stay private.
