What is Boudoir Photography?
Fine art photography that captures the body and personality. The goal of boudoir photography is to create classy images that showcase your personality: romantic, cute, sexy, naughty, or sensual.
Who should have a boudoir shoot done?
Anyone that has a remote interest in it! Brides-to-be as a present for their groom. Wives as a present for their husbands. Just to relight that sexy fire.
Ladies that want to capture how good they look. Ladies that want a confidence boost.
If you are interested in moving forward with JB Photography we can chat over the phone, via email, or in person at my office in Germantown or at my home studio in Colgate. It's totally up to you if you want to meet in person, some boudie babes feel more comfortable meeting in person, others are OK with waiting until the session to see my smiling face. However we chat, we'll hash out the details of when, what to wear, hair and make up, etc.
The Day Of
Don't forget your outfit changes including shoes, accessories, and a robe! When you show up I'll bring you into the staging room where you can spread out everything you brought with you. Then we'll take a peak at the boudoir rooms. I mainly use one room, but some ladies also like to shoot in a different room for variety. I'll see if you want anything to drink and we'll take a look at your outfit choices. We'll pick out which one to start with and I'll give you time to change. We'll also chat about your personality a little bit. These pictures should reflect you. Maybe you see yourself as cutsie not sexy and want to stick with cute shots. Maybe you want to try some of the sexy poses. Maybe you want to smile or maybe you want to smolder. Most likely, we'll have a mixture of all of these, but having you talk about your personality gives me a good place to start. From there I'll have you stand or sit in certain positions so you look amazing, but I will always ask if you feel comfortable. We do a variety of shots on the bed and on the chaise lounges. We'll cycle through all of your outfits so that you have a great variety of photos to choose from. Throughout the session I'll direct you into poses and I'll help you with hand positioning and facial expressions. If there are any specific pictures you've seen that you want; we will recreate those.
After the session, I will post the proofs into a private locked gallery and send you the login information. You'll then go through and "favorite" your best 50 images. I'll then go through and edit those. You typically get around 100 photos back. The editing process includes, color correction, lighting correction, cropping, and some special effects like vignettes. Within 4 weeks, all of your favorites will be edited and upload to your client gallery. From the gallery you can download and order your photos. You own the copyrights to the prints, so you do not have to order through the site, but it is there for you as an option. Your client gallery will stay live for 6 weeks after I send the final images, so make sure to download and save the photos somewhere safe within that time period. If you want me to put together a boudoir book for you, I can do that for an additional post production fee.
