How far ahead should I book my session?
If you're doing your session for yourself with no particular timeline in mind, I suggest giving yourself a minimum of 2-3 months ahead of your session to prepare. You'll then have time to shop around in-store and online for the perfect outfits, get your hair done (and potentially fix any oopsies) and pamper yourself with trips to the spa all before your session date so you feel 100% prepared and at ease.
If you're doing your session with the intention of giving a gift, I suggest booking your session about 6 months in advance of the date you would like to give them. You'll want 2-3 months before your session to prepare and another 6-8 weeks after your session for you to see your images, place your order and for your products to come in. (Varies based off products selected).
Sessions are not typically available on short notice, but don't hesitate to ask. Our calendar is typically booked full 2-3 months in advance, so contact Jenna for availability!
May I bring a friend?
You are welcome to invite a trusted friend to join you while you are getting pampered! When we begin shooting, it will just be the two of us, but they are free to hang out, go shopping, or grab some coffee while we’re in the studio having our fun! Just let us know you're planning to bring someone so we can make sure to have extra refreshments made available!
Do you do couples sessions?
Absolutely! Couples are welcomed and encouraged to enjoy this experience together! Only one hair & make-up application is included in our session fee, so if additional application is needed, it will be invoiced separately upon request! Other than that, it is treated the same as any other session!
I'm not good at posing, can I do something like this?
I'll let you in on a little secret...ALL the women you see in my portfolio are 100% real, everyday gorgeous women, not models! Your boudoir session requires absolutely no modeling experience, and you will be guided throughout the whole process. Believe it or not, I am useless in front of the camera, I always feel like a deer in the headlights, so I deliver the type of instruction I personally also need. So rest assured, I am there bossing you around and telling you went your toes are doing weird things. I got your back!
I have blemishes and/or insecurities....?
Whilst shooting at your session, I keep a note of all the features you love about yourself, & the features you wish to minimize; only placing you in poses that are sure to bring focus to the places you are most confident, & maybe even some places you were unsure about (but I find beautiful about you!). Basic skin retouching & artistic editing are completed once you make your selections and place your order at your Image Premiere!
Where will my session take place?
Our luxurious private studio is located in the Chelsea district of Historic Downtown Norfolk. It is specifically designed & furnished for boudoir photography. If you'd like something more personalized, we can also do an In-Home boudoir session! Or, if you're feeling adventurous, we can head outside for some stunning Outdoor Boudoir Photography! If this is something you would like to do, simply reach out and I will notate your session details when you book!
Do you provide wardrobe?
Are my images shared?
