How do I schedule?
To schedule your appointment, please fill out our online schedule form to send us your information and choose your session date/time. Please call, text (303-395-0213) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as we would love to chat about your boudoir session ideas and questions.
Who will be at my photo session?
The photo session will be at The Beauty & Boudoir Studio which is completely private and accessible only to scheduled clients. Only you and your photographer (Lanett) will be present during your session.
Can I bring a friend?
Sure! You are more than welcome to bring a female friend if it makes you feel more comfortable. I DO ask that the friend not interfere with the shoot (running in to “touch you up” in between every shot, directing your posing, etc) as I will handle anything along those lines that needs done. I do not allow any more than 1 friend in the studio with you. We do not allow men in the studio while shooting. That’s a firm policy.
The women on your website all look like models. I am not "modelesque"...can I do this??
First of all, THANK YOU! I take that as a compliment of the highest degree...because...well....these women are not models. These women, just like you, at one point looked at the photos on my website and thought "Hmm..I know mine won't turn out THAT good since I don't look like a model, but I'm wondering how good she can make me look?" I know exactly how to pose all types of women to look their very very best. You don't have to know what you are doing in the slightest. I will direct you every step of the way, from helping to you prepare for your boudoir shoot with wardrobe and grooming tips, to posing every inch of you, to coaching your breathing through the session. You just need to show up and TRUST ME.
I feel a little nervous, what can I expect?
You are COMPLETELY normal! In fact we hear all of our clients say that. Remember that our professional female photographer will coach you through the entire photo shoot, telling you exactly what to do, how to pose, and what expression to give. The most apparent comment in our testimonials section is about how comfortable and relaxed we make our client’s feel; so you are in good hands.
Do I need to bring my own outfits for my boudoir shoot?
Yes, we recommend that you do bring up to 3 of your own outfits to the studio. Something you feel comfortable in. Please visit our what to wear page for ideas.
On which days of the week can I have my photo session?
We accept shoots on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, some Thursdays, and Fridays. Select Saturday time slots are available with our Signature Boudoir Experience and are booked out 4-5 months in advance.
Will you post my boudoir photos on your website or social media?
No. Our client’s privacy is our number one priority. The clients you see have given us exclusive permission as without your written consent we will NEVER post your boudoir photos publicly. We understand the sensitive nature of boudoir photography and have the utmost respect for your wishes to keep them entirely private and secure.
How soon will my photos be ready?
Your image proofs will be ready as soon as the following week. Final edits take one to two weeks upon ordering and products take up to two to four weeks to arrive once the order is finalized. Please schedule your appointment 4-8 weeks in advance keeping with these times in mind. If you need sooner, rush fees will apply.
Will you retouch my images?
Yes. We will retouch all of the images from your session. Every image includes our standard retouching – which is skin softening and the removal of temporary blemishes, scrapes, bruises, etc. We will pose, light, and style you to flatter YOUR figure. Additional editing such as tattoo removal, tan line removal, clothing fix etc. available upon request for an additional fee. All images are retouched in house personally by Lanett Franko to insure privacy and quality.
Do you offer in studio hair/makeup/lahses prior to my session?
Longmont, CO - Yes. We offer stylist services immediately prior to your photography session. You can choose to add on this service when scheduling your photography appt for an additional $100 paid directly to the stylist by cash, check, card or paypal. Your appt start time will remain the same (appt length extended) and you will arrive at the studio with clean dry hair and clean face. We do require $25 upfront to secure stylist on location.
Portland, OR - No. We refer our clients to professional stylists in the area who are available immediately prior to your session at off site location. You will receive names/contact info upon booking.
Is it OK to tan before my shoot?
We do not recommend tanning before your shoot. Tanning always shows up VERY orange in the images, can cause tan lines, orange palms, orange heels and other odd markings on the body. It can also rub off on clothing and furniture. Fixing orange skin is not part of our standard retouching and will incur an additional fee.
Do you offer styled outdoor, water or on-location photo sessions?
We offer these sessions under our Signature Boudoir Sessions (not valid with current promotions). Please contact us if you would like more information on our boudoir on-location, outdoor or water photo shoots. Client will be responsible for on location fees.
Do I have to show a lot of skin?
This is completely up to you! You can go super-sexy, with lingerie, or bring in one of your partner's white shirts, or of course you can always go a little more conservative – even a sexy dress could look amazing! After all, it’s your boudoir photo shoot and we want you to be completely comfortable.
What is your cancellation policy?
We ask that in order to be able to reschedule your boudoir shoot without losing your deposit/voucher or incurring an additional fee, you must reschedule 7 days before your shoot. You can reschedule within this time frame ONE time only on our online scheduling form or by contacting our studio. We never make an exception for this policy as we have our photographer booked and ready to accommodate you in advance that would not be there otherwise. We truly appreciate your understanding.
Do you photograph men or offer other types of photography?
The Beauty and Boudoir Studio is exclusively dedicated to women's portraiture. Couple Sessions are reserved for returning clients only. Weddings, Engagements, & Senior sessions are available through Lovely Lulu Photography. You can view images and book a session at www.lovelylulu.com
