What is the typical cost of a boudoir session?
Boudoir sessions start at $350 and they typically last for 1.5-2 hours. Sessions include a data dvd with edited high-resolution images, custom dvd cover, and a proofing site. Custom albums and print options are available as well. Please contact me for a full pricing sheet.
Where do you photograph boudoir sessions?
I use my home for boudoir sessions which is located on the outskirts of Blacksburg, Virginia. This includes an indoor bedroom studio as as well as private outdoor spaces if the weather is warm enough. Here are some images of the studio space:
What do I wear?
Bring 2-4 outfits to choose from and we will mix it up. Please also bring different shoe/heel options and jewelry of your preference.
One more thing, this is important! Make sure to wear loose fitting clothing the day of your session, otherwise you will have marks from jeans, your bra, etc.
What about hair and makeup?
You may choose to arrive with hair and makeup complete. If you prefer, I can hire a professional makeup artist and hair stylist to come to my home for you. Some options follow:
Mary Anne Jennelle & Jennifer Caldwell (stylists at Meredith’s Salon) – The cost for makeup is $78. Formal updo’s are $90 and a casual hair style is $66. A $30 discount will be given if you would like both hair and makeup services.
Lauren Haylee Cotzee of LHC Promakeup - A $90 makeup service including camera-ready makeup, lashes, etc.
Can I bring a friend?
Of course! Sometimes it’s just more comfortable to have your best friend with you for support so feel free!
What else should I bring?
Your favorite music can help you relax so feel free to bring along any of your favorite cd’s and we can play them during the session.
Do I have the rights to use my photos?
Yes, you are free to prints images as you wish and make copies of your data dvd. They are yours, have fun with them!
When can I expect my data dvd after the session?
Expect your data dvd within 1-2 weeks after your session. Before your dvd is mailed, you will be sent links to a blog story, proofing site, and previews on my photography facebook page.
How does the proofing site work?
The proofing site is an online album of your final images. This is just another way to view your images and to pass them on to family and friends. Prints can also be ordered directly from this site.
