Before your boudoir session
Having boudoir photos taken can be very exciting and nerve racking at the same time. We want to help make this experience as relaxing and easy as possible. Before we schedule your boudoir session, we will have a quick conversation with you over the phone so that we can 'break the ice' so to speak. We will confirm whether you are wanting a female boudoir photography session or a couples boudoir session. We then will ask you questions relating to your session, why you want to have a session & what you want to get out of your session? We want to make this an amazing experience for you.
Once you book your dream session with us, we will then send you helpful information and tips in the lead up to your shoot. Plus you are always welcome to message Mel if you need a second opinion with outfits.
The boudoir session
On the day of your session, we will start with professional hair and make up and a glass of bubbly to help calm your nerves. Boudoir doesn’t always have to be just about lingerie, in fact, you can be super sexy just wearing a jacket or robe! To help you ease into the mood of the shoot comfortably, when we step into the studio to start taking photos, we will start by having you wear an item of clothing over your lingerie. This could be a sexy dress, jacket or robe. Don't worry about not knowing how to pose either. That's our job, and we have lots of fun techniques to get you posing like a professional model! Our aim during the boudoir session isn't just to get confident and sexy photos, but to give you an experience of a lifetime!
After we have completed your boudoir session, we will make another appointment with you to come into our studio and view a slideshow of your stunning photos with Mel. Mel will help you select the photos and products you desire. This is where you can decide how you would like to purchase your chosen collection, whether it be a payment plan or paid in full.
The whole boudoir experience!
Every step of the experience is a confidence building event! From the excitement, preparation and of course nerves in the lead up to your session. We find that many ladies have wanted to do a boudoir session for a long time and when they finally take that step to book it in, they immediately feel a sense of ownership as they take that step forward.
The session itself is a big empowerment drive as you begin to feel more confident in your outfits or lack there of. As the shoot progresses and you find that not only are you posing like a true Diva, but you are also giving those sassy looks with your eyes and rocking those booty shots! We will also give you a look on the camera during the shoot so you can see just how much you're owning it girl!
Finally, you'll have your ordering appointment. The experience is different for everyone but always positive! You might cry, you might laugh, you might even be as quiet as a mouse as you see yourself all glammed up and looking as gorgeous as ever! There is no doubt that viewing your images is an empowering and confidence building step of the boudoir experience!
Three Studios just for you!
Sultry & Seductive
Step into our private studio for a 'Sultry & Seductive' boudoir session. We use our dramatic light with a range of props, settings and poses to highlight your confidence and seduce anyone who you would have look at your images. The dark coloured walls, curtains and timber flooring make for the perfect setting for a moodier style of boudoir shoot.
Fun & Flirty
With our fun & flirty style, we use the soft natural light of our bedroom setting studio. The light themed decor and design of the room give a soft and airy feel. Perfect for a boudoir shoot!
Dark & Moody
For those who want some real dramatic flare to their boudoir session. Our newest 'Dark and Moody' studio is perfect for casting deep shadows and letting the highlights show off your gorgeous curves.
Where will the session take place?
Our sessions are held at our Slacks Creek studio (2 minutes from IKEA). The studio is private, quiet and air-conditioned. We capture a light and airy mood with the natural light and use a range of props (bed, chair, rug, mirror) to change the setting of the studio. We also have our 'Dark and Moody' studio to capture a different look, giving you more gorgeous photos of yourself to see!
Do you supply outfits for the session?
We have a client closet, which is continuously growing, which you are welcome to use. Items include lace robes, jackets, button shirts, body suits and lingerie sets. For hygiene reasons, any lingerie is to be worn over clothing such as g-strings. We do still recommend that all clients bring their own outfits. That way you know you will be comfortable and confident in what you are wearing. We also recommend bringing some sexy clothing items that are not lingerie to start your session with. This will help you ease into the mood plus can still make for stunning photos. Most clients will bring up to 3 outfits. Feel free to bring anything along and we can mix and match on the day.
Do I have to go nude?
Only if you want to. We do offer nude glamour photography (tasteful) as an outfit. We can pose to cover and hide body parts or expose, it is entirely up to you. Most clients like to see how they are feeling during the session.
(Our nude set is classy and tasteful. most importantly, it is completely up to you if you wish to do it)
Will my photos end up on the website or Facebook?
Only if you wish them to. If that is the case, you can select which images you are happy to be shown. You always have the final say on whether your images are shared publicly.
This will be my first boudoir shoot, Got any Tips?
Don't stress and try not to be too nervous. You have nothing to worry about. Mel and Dave are very experienced, not only in poses, but also how to get you to relax during a boudoir shoot and nail those sexy and sultry looks. Here are some more tips which can set your mind at ease.
What is boudoir and why do women do it?
Boudoir can be a celebration of your body and journey, it can be a confidence builder, a self discovery or simply a special gift for a significant other. For each woman, boudoir can mean something completely different and personal, but one thing they all have in common is the way their eyes light up when they see their images and the confidence they own after their shoot.
Where is your studio located?
We are located in Slacks Creek which is on the south side of Brisbane just 2 minutes from IKEA. Our clients typically come from Brisbane, Gold coast, Ipswich or Sunshine Coast as it is a short trip. However we have had several clients from NSW, Toowoomba and regional QLD! Not all boudoir photography is the same so finding the right one is important not only to your experience but the final outcome of your photos. This is why we have clients who will travel many hours to work with us. We are also able to organise an online Zoom ordering appointment so that you don't have to travel back to the studio.
If I go nude, will it be exposed or tasteful?
A boudoir photographer will likely shoot a specific style, which is why it is important to find the right one who lines up with the style you are looking for, especially when it comes to nude photography. Our style of nude photography is like a cross between glamour and boudoir. So think of us as your glamour nude photographer. We use posing to keep it completely tasteful, even if you chose to be exposed, or we can go with an implied nude look. Covering with arms or props.
