Q: What IS a boudoir portrait session?
Boudoir is subjective of course but for us it is simply, Women's portraiture. It is a celebration of yourself, your body, where you are right now and how far you have come. Typically boudoir portraits are given as a gift to a significant other but we have found that many women choose to do this a special, pampering experience for themselves.
Q: I am a real woman with real flaws, can you make me look good?
Absolutely! I have studied woman's portraiture and honestly most of the things you are worried about are taken care of in lighting and posing. I am 100% confident I can make ANY woman look and feel amazing no matter her age, size or shape!
Q: How long have you been photographing boudoir?
I started my business 10 years ago and decided to specialize in women's portraiture 8 years ago. I was the first to offer boudoir portraits in the Tri cities area and it quickly became what our studio is known for.
Q: Should I lose weight before I schedule I session?
NO! This type of session is about celebrating who you are right NOW. Most ladies think that they have to get confident in order to do the session it is actually quite the opposite.
Q: Do you have outfits? What should I wear?
We will discuss your choice of outfits at your consultation. What you wear is completely up to you and how you want to look and feel during your session. Lingerie is NOT a requirement, however most women find that stepping out of their comfort zone is very freeing.
We do have a collection of gowns, clothes and wraps to use but we do not share lingerie, because, well, thats gross.
If you do choose to wear lingerie you can bring your own or shop in our in studio lingerie boutique!! Philocaly Lingerie boutique features a carefully curated selection of french inspired lingerie and you will have the opportunity to shop privately in the store during your consultation.
