We want you to know
So you're looking to do a boudoir shoot!
We know that selecting an artist for a Boudoir Session and choosing someone you are comfortable with can be a process. Do you have butterflies in your tummy from being both nervous and excited about it? Maybe it would help you if you knew our goals as a studio.
Most of our clients want to keep their photographs 100% private. They are brides wanting to give a wedding gift to their fiance or they are women who are celebrating occasions or anniversaries and wanting to give a gift to their sweetie.
But, it definitely goes deeper than that. The Mission and Vision of The Boudoir Studio is to impact women! You see, most women feel hindered most of their lives; whether it be how they feel about themselves or their bodies. Our goal for the shoot is, not only creating a gift, but to impact her confidence so much that she finally sees what he has been seeing in her all along. Usually at the beginning of the shoot, everyone is scared, but then, they leave on top of the world and they are so proud to show off their artwork and album as a statement of her new found confidence.
The best part is, husbands truly feel loved when they receive this gift. We have seen grooms cry and other clients have thanked us for renewing a spark. Because you see...when a woman feels great about herself and is confident, she can express herself, and that my friend, impacts relationships!!!
The Process at The Boudoir Studio
In 2019, we got to celebrate 1 full year at The Boudoir Studio! In the past 12 months, we were able to make jaw-dropping gifts for 45 beautiful women! We love sharing our passion and helping women see the beauty that has been there the entire time!
How does it work?
At The Boudoir Studio, our clients get to choose to have Richelle part of their shooting experience or be shot solely by the Artist, Jaques. If you choose a date and time with only Jaques in the studio, you are welcome to bring a friend with you for moral support. We have a very nice change room area where she can sit and relax while you are being photographed. You ladies can chat between outfit changes and make it a fun time!!
Jaques is getting very renowned for his art (Boudoir Art by Jaques) and models are now reaching out to get photographed by him and magazines are contacting us to have his images featured. At The Boudoir Studio, our entire team is so excited for him and we are all so proud to be part of it.
Whether you choose to be shot by Jaques or choose an experience with both Jaques & Richelle, we know that you will love your time at The Boudoir Studio, Windsor’s Premier Boudoir Studio!
The most important thing to us is that you have a great experience!! Our ladies book a shoot date/time and pay online with our Online Scheduling App. Once that is taken care of, our booking Questionnaire will help us see the vision and goals for the shoot.
Next, we send you a Boudoir Session Prep Guide and Checklist to prepare for your Shoot and a link to book your Preparation Consultation! Then, this is where Richelle comes in! Yay! She will chat with you over the phone or on a Zoom pre-shoot consultation about your vision and answer your questions before you start on the search for outfits. If you have questions before booking, no problem, just call (519-915-8073) or email us at email@example.com
What to expect during the shoot
During the session itself, Jaques is true professional and artist directing and photographing you.
His Boudoir shooting style is Dark and Moody. He gets a balance of well lit photos for his clients where you can see her beautiful features and carefully selected lingerie pieces, as well as dramatic images.
Like a true artist, he makes use of highlights and shadows to contour the female form in order to bring mystery to the image; as well as to keep certain aspects hidden...just enough to make you intrigued.
About 90% of our clients prefer to finish their session with the images that we have become known for: The Boudoir Studio artistic nudes and shower shots in order to make her images go from beautiful to OMG...amazing! (You can choose to leave your bottoms on if desired)
When our clients choose to have Richelle there, her role is support and encouragement. If you choose to have a session solely by the artist, feel free to make a day of it and invite a best friend to hang out with you at the studio.
Everyone’s comfort level is completely different and we respect that. We have some girls who don’t mind what is exposed, and some girls only want implied nude photos where parts are covered. It’s important to us that we respect your boundaries and we always discuss this prior to the shoot, at the Preparation Consultation, as well as in your initial Questionnaire. We’ve got you covered.
Hair and Makeup
When you arrive, our friendly Professional Hair & Makeup artist will greet you with your favourite music and preferred beverage. She will do a small consultation with you to determine the feel you are going for, and start creating an incredible look for you. We reserve two hours for this pampering service so that you do not feel rushed. Finally, she will finish up by applying gorgeous lashes. Professional Hair & Makeup is such a crucial part of Boudoir. It accentuates your beauty and creates the most amazing images, and this is why it’s included in your Session Fee. We want to make sure you look and feel amazing, and at the same time, we want you to have an incredible experience!
What to wear/bring
A well-planned shoot makes all the difference in the final images. Planning it can be a little time-consuming on your end, but will be so worth it, trust me! We usually suggest 3-4 outfits and bring something meaningful (your wedding lingerie/his favorite jersey, etc). Some girls show up with a suitcase of their items, and we just go through it prior to the session and help you decide, so no worries.
Don’t forget the shoes! We love to use shoes in the shots! Some girls send me pictures of their outfits prior to the session if they need advice. If you are trying to communicate your vision, use our site or your current Pinterest board. Most girls just leave it up to us.
Can I send you images of things I want?
We never change our style of shooting, however, if you are trying to communicate poses you like, feel free to send us images so we can better understand what you are expressing. Pictures are better than words.
