It's time to rediscover your beauty with a boudoir session!
A boudoir is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning “to be sulky”. Boudoir photography is the capturing of beautiful and intimate images of women in a similar “boudoir” ambiance. Ladies book a boudoir session because they feel the need to rediscover their beauty and sensuality and feel better about themselves. Brides book a boudoir photography session to remind their Fiance of that beautiful woman walking down the aisle soon. It also makes a unique and often unexpected wedding, anniversary, birthday, or Holiday gift to your significant other.
We love our studio space. Our clients LOVE it. After owning a commercial studio for a few years, we decided to move our sessions to our home and it's the best decision we've ever made. Unlike commercial locations, a “home” location allows us to provide a real boudoir look and feel to your photos without the need of renting a hotel suite. There are two completely different boudoir suites to choose from and plenty of other locations inside and out to have your photos taken and add variety to our little black book!
Where in Central Florida are you located?
Our studio is located in Groveland, Florida. Groveland is an Orlando suburb, located next to Clermont, about 35-45 minutes from most of Orlando Metro areas and a little over an hour from Tampa. We very grateful that our clients are not only from Orlando or the Tampa area, but many drive from far places including North and South Florida for their pampering experience with us.
Who does your photos?
Mya is the boudoir photographer and the only person present during your boudoir or lingerie photo session. Her husband Hector assists during non-lingerie session and does all the prep and post work. Mya will be the only person you will ever see during your session.
What should I expect?
When you arrive to our location, you’ll be greeted by Mya and taken to the “beauty room” where the transformation begins. You’ll get pampered for approximately two hours with glamorous makeup and we’ll add some volume/glamour touch to your hair as well. During that time, you will get to know your photographer (Mya) very well and go over your session into detail. When your makeover is over, you and Mya will go together through the wardrobe you brought and decide which boudoir suite and areas you’ll love get photographed at. You will spend approximately 4 to 6 hours during the entire experience.
I want my photos ready for a specific date. How far out should I book my session?
We recommend you come in at least 2-months before your wedding, but we may be able to accommodate you last-minute if you just missed your deadline. Contact us to check our last-minute availability.
Do you provide wardrobe?
You must bring your own wardrobe. Lingerie is personal and intimate and we think it should not be shared among strangers. We do have small selection of sexy shoes for the gals who normally don’t wear heels and prefer not to make the investment.
WARDROBE IDEAS FOR BOUDOIR:
WHAT TO AVOID
Do you provide props?
Our motto when it comes to props: if it was not meant to use in a bedroom, it doesn't belong there. With a few exceptions, we are not a fan of props for boudoir as they tend to give your photos an outdated kitschy look (think Glamor Shots from the 80’s - Yikes!).
I have no idea how to pose for the camera; can you help?
Absolutely! Don’t worry about posing. That’s the photographer’s job! From facial expressions to body posture, you will be guided down to your fingertips to look your best regardless of your body type. You won’t be asked to “look” sexy. Instead, you’ll be shown and taught tips and tricks on how to accomplish that!
How do you edit the photos?
Photos are edited for color, contrast, composition, removal of temporary small blemishes that can be easily removed, and skin softening. Skin softening will often minimize scars, stretchmarks and such but it will not completely eliminate them. The best way to avoid seeing those is to choose proper wardrobe. For example, if your stomach area is full of stretchmarks and you don’t want them shown in your photos, wear a high-waist panty, a bodysuit, or a boy short instead of a bikini.
I don’t think I’m sexy or beautiful. How can you make me look or look beautiful and sexy?
It is normal to feel that way some insecurities about posing in lingerie. Your photographer has formal education with leaders in the industry on how to pose and photograph women to look their best. In addition, you’ll be coached from your head down to your toes, including facial expressions, throughout your session. That being said, the final result it’s up to YOU. No amount of coaching will work on a woman with extreme confidence issues and who constantly looks for the things they don’t like in their pictures. If you hate photos or the way you look in photos, you are NOT ready for a session. When you coming for your session, leave your inhibitions at the door, come in the right frame of mind, and get ready to have FUN and embrace your beautiful body just the way it is!
Can I bring or have another person with me?
No, sorry. It is our experience that clients have a little difficulty connecting with the photographer, take longer to relax and have difficulty during the posing and coaching session when they are paying attention to another person instead of the photographer. Therefore, we do not allow companions present during our sessions. If you have questions or concerns about your photographer and the studio please join our private VIP Facebook group here. Many of the ladies in the group are previous clients and would be more than happy to give you references about our work and studio privately.
Is there an age minimum for a session?
Yes. Boudoir clients must be 21 and over.
Do you photograph couples?
Yes, we do photograph couples. Please check our portfolio where you will find a few couples' boudoir sessions for a better idea as to what to expect.
Do you photograph nudes?
Yes, we do photograph artistic nudes for ladies only.
Do you photograph vintage/pin-ups?
Yes, we do! We have a gallery of pin-up sessions on our portfolio.
Do you photograph bachelorette parties or groups?
No, we don't.
Do you photograph plus size women?
Yes, we do! Please check our portfolio for beautiful plus size ladies we've had the pleasure to photograph!
I don't see "x" type of woman in your portfolio?
95% of our costumers do not want us to share their photos. Therefore, our portfolio doesn't represent all the beautiful ladies from all ages and sizes we've had the pleasure to photograph.
I want to keep my photos private. Is this possible?
Absolutely! Your privacy is very important to us. All the ladies you see on our website gave us permission to post their photos. Unless you give us permission, we will NOT share your photos!
May I ask for references?
Absolutely! Instead of giving you a “convenient” list of clients to call, click here to join our studio’s private Facebook group and feel free to approach some of our previous clients privately and ask them about us!
