BOUDOIR Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE SESSION FEE?
For standard sessions - there is a $350 session fee which includes your pre-shoot consultation, onsite hair & makeup, access to my client closet, one hour photo shoot in studio, same day viewing and ordering session and your favorite 5 images delivered in an online gallery with print rights. You will have the opportunity to purchase more images and products during your viewing session. *If you spend $350 or more on products you will receive all of your images from your session!
WHAT DO I NEED IN ORDER TO RESERVE MY SESSION TIME?
A $100 non-refundable deposit and signed contract are required to reserve your date.
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
I do on all products! You won't receive any products, however, until the final payment is complete.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You definitely should bring anything you're incredibly comfortable in because you'll look your best when you feel your best! Still unsure of what that means? Once you book I'll email you with a complete checklist of what to bring as well as some of my favorite sites for outfit inspiration! We can also hop on the phone to chat about outfit ideas either before or after you reserve your spot! I always encourage a consultation call so you can decide if I'm the right photographer for you 🤓 Schedule your call now - fill out a contact form to schedule or call me directly at 716-361-6507
WHAT ABOUT HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Hair and makeup is included in your session fee and will be done on site / at the studio.
HOW DO I POSE?! I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING!!!
That's what I'm here for!! I don't expect you to come in with any prior knowledge or experience. My favorite thing in the world is turning ordinary women into full blown models with proper posing & guiding.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Sure my darlin! Whatever will make you feel most comfortable 😆
HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN SEE MY PHOTOS?
We will sit down for your viewing & ordering session one hour after your shoot. If that doesn't work with your schedule, you will return to the studio for a viewing session within one week.
For Mini Session Promotions - you will receive an online proof gallery within 1-2 days.
HOW DO I GET MY PHOTOS?
Once you've chosen your top images, I will do any retouching & deliver your final digital images in a password protected, online, downloadable gallery. Your printed products will be printed and delivered to my studio in Orchard Park where you can either pick them up or pay a $10 flat rate shipping fee to have them sent to your home.
AM I ALLOWED TO PRINT OR SHARE MY PHOTOS ELSEWHERE?
Yes. You will receive a print release with your digital files and you can feel free to share on social media.
WILL YOU POST ANY PHOTOS OF ME ON YOUR WEBSITE OR SOCIAL MEDIA?
I won't post anything without your written permission! If you do grant me permission to show any of your photos, I won't tag you in anything unless you've specifically requested that I do.
HOW MUCH RETOUCHING DO YOU DO?
I want you to look like yourself, so I do very minimal retouching... I will soften your skin a bit, and remove any bruises or blemishes. I don't remove moles, freckles or anything else that's natural to your look, unless you specifically request that I do.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE?
For standard sessions - I will do my best to accommodate your reschedule requests. Cancellations will not be refunded the session deposit fee.
For Mini Sessions - Due to the fact that these are limited spot events, there are no cancellations or refunds allowed. Sorry to be so tough, but when one person cancels it jeopardizes my business. If you cannot make your appointment, you can have a friend take your place. Thank you for understanding!
