I haven’t really talked about boudoir sessions as one of my services, but after photographing a new client recently, I have been bitten by the BOUDOIR BUG.
It will definitely be on my list of services from now on!
Clients are often nervous and curious. “I don’t have the perfect body…how can I do a boudoir shoot?” My answer is simple…EVERYONE can do a Boudoir shoot. I will make sure to shoot specifically to your body and shoot the best angles that will flatter your body type.
Boudoir is a time to pamper YOU! From the second you walk in you will be pampered. Think of it as a day just for you. Dress comfy, come get your makeup done by Olivia Ward with Makeup By Olivia. There will be wine, chocolate, and strawberries for you to enjoy while you get ready. Once you are all dolled up we will take beautiful pictures.

Some FAQ about Boudoir
Where will the session be at?
My home in Start, Louisiana.
When are the mini sessions?
Sunday October 4th
How much is the boudoir mini session and what does it include?
The mini session is $250 plus tax and it includes 45 minutes of shooting time (plenty of time for 2 outfits), 20+ high resolution images
fully retouched with a print release, wine and snacks, and professional makeup.
Why are the sessions discounted?
The sessions are discounted from the regular price because the session time is shortened, I am able to block the entire day out, and dedicate the location
to this one shoot which saves on travel time and saves you on location fees.
If I want a different location, what are my options?
You can hire me for a private shoot in the comforts of your own home, a friend’s house, or location of your choosing, but it will be at the regular price and
will not include makeup, hotel booking, or wine and snacks.
Who will be present during the session?
Just you, me, and my assistant (makeup will be done in another room), but you certainly can bring a friend to help you feel comfortable. I only ask that you do not bring your significant other. They tend to get in the way and you will be a bit more relaxed. Plus, if this is a gift for them it’s better as a surprise!
Do you provide outfits or do I bring my own?
You will need to bring anything that you would like to wear. I encourage you to bring more than 2 outfits. I can even help you pick.
I will however, be providing props (i.e. bed with white linens, love seat, etc.-multiple setups).
How long is the session?
The session is 45 minutes long. Plan to arrive 1 hour before your session time for makeup and dressing.
I’ve never done this, will you help me pose?
Absolutely! I will pose you in the most flattering angles. I will coach you and give you a play by play of what to do.
What if I’m pregnant?
Nothing is more beautiful than a pregnant woman. I will capture this time in a beautiful intimate way.
I have cellulite, scars, acne, tattoos I do not want shown?
I don’t ever assume anyone wants something altered. Just let me know before we start your session what you would like to be touched up.
Are my photos available to the public?
Only with your permission and nothing will be posted or used until after your have given your special someone their gift!
What do I need to do to book a time slot?
To secure your spot, a signed contract & $100 retainer payment are due upon booking, with the remaining balance due at your session.
You can pay for your retainer by clicking the PayPal Buy Now Button at the bottom of this post. I will email you the link to the contract shortly after receiving your payment.
Is the retainer fee refundable?
Unfortunately no – these sessions are extremely limited on space, so I have to make sure you’re as serious and committed as I am.
A shoot like this takes a lot of planning to put together.
