Boudoir Shoot FAQs

A truly Bespoke Boudoir Shoot Experience as Beautiful and Unique as You Are

Frequently Asked Questions

We get a lot of questions from prospective clients, so we have tried to answer some of the more common ones here within our Frequently Asked Questions section to help prepare you for what to expect from a Boudoir photoshoot with us. There’s a lot of information relating to the specifics of a Boudoir shoot with us on our Boudoir Experience page. Additionally, our blog posts on ‘What to bring to a Boudoir Photoshoot’ and ‘How to prepare for a Boudoir Shoot’ contain some great tips and tricks to help you prepare as much as possible.

Where will my Boudoir shoot take place?

We’re based in Buckingham in North Buckinghamshire, about 20 minutes from Milton Keynes or Bicester and easily accessible via the motorway network. The studio space we work in is based in the safety and privacy of my home, and is decorated in a very tasteful and opulent fashion to really accentuate the classy style of Boudoir photography we pride ourselves on. Take a look at our Contact Us page here for the address and location information and check out our Boudoir gallery to get a sense of the setting we’ll be working in

How long does a Boudoir shoot take?

Typically, we’d suggest blocking out a full day for your experience. We generally start Hair & Make-up around 9.30am which takes about 2 hours. The shoot itself will start soon after your prep is finished and this generally takes 2-3 hours. Within this time, we generally cover off 3 different outfits/looks to give a nice variation to your final images.

What should I bring to my Boudoir session?

We get asked this an awful lot and I have written a blog post here with all of the information you will need to prepare before and during your experience.

Will you use my images in your portfolio?

No, unless this has been explicitly agreed by you by signing a release form for your images. Otherwise, your pictures will remain completely confidential and only shared with you and whoever you choose to share them with. Confidentiality is of upmost importance to us and we pride ourselves on the steps we take to ensure your privacy.

When will I receive my images?

As a general rule, image processing will take about 2 weeks. I will always endeavour to send a sneak peek image within 48 hours to really get you excited about your final reveal.

What is your approach to skin retouching?

As a general rule, I will only retouch semi-permanent or temporary skin blemishes unless asked to specifically address something. This would include bruises, skin redness, spots etc.. Your skin will be slightly smoothened to ensure continuity of skin tone and to give a little more ‘glow’. I will not change your body shape (unless asked to do so), but I will address body shape aberrations as a result of a pose that would otherwise be unnatural. An example of this would be when underwear ‘pinches’ into the skin when stretching.

How many images will I receive?

I will edit 30 images from your Boudoir session and provide them to you in both colour and black & white, so you will have 60 images in total to choose from. Screen resolution images will be delivered via a secure online gallery where you will be able to download them.

What products can I buy from you?

We offer a wide range of wall art options for you to choose from, as well as some very classy and discrete album and print portfolio options to showcase a wide variety of your images from your Boudoir session. Our clients typically purchase an album/portfolio alongside a large piece of wall art for that killer image. Take a look at the Boudoir Investment page for an overview of the products we can offer you

What does screen resolution mean?

Resolution refers to the number of pixels contained in an image. Computers do not differentiate between low or high resolution, meaning you will get perfect looking images on a computer (or other digital device) screen no matter what the resolution. As such, we provide screen resolution files as part of your initial investment to ensure you have a digital copy of your experience to keep forever. Nevertheless, screen resolution files would appear pixelated and grainy if they were printed.
