FAQs

We know you may have lots of questions about your photo session.  We have attempted to answer many common questions and concerns below for you.  If you have more questions, please contact us!

“I don’t have a perfect figure.”

We believe everyone has a perfect figure for boudoir portraits.  To bring out your inner super model, we will take photos from a variety of angles, focusing on all of your favorite parts. We want you to see just how beautiful you are!

“What should I expect for my session?”

  • All Bella Luxe Boudoir sessions include hair and makeup.
  • All proofed images will have basic retouching completed.  This includes skin smoothing, eye enhancement, and blemish removal.
  • Bring an adult friend if it will make you feel more comfortable.  Your friend may also help with outfit selection.
  • Bella Luxe sessions can include one or two female photographers.  During the session, the room is closed, and only persons you wish to include will be in the shooting room.

“How should I prepare, and what do I bring?”

Wear loose fitting clothing before the session.  Elastic/tight clothes or undergarments can leave unsightly lines, or redness.  Hair and Makeup will be done, so come with no (or little) makeup, and your hair down.

What to bring:

  • A basic bra & panty set, especially in black.
  • Your favorite lingerie
  • Doing this for someone special? How about a dress shirt, a tie, or maybe their favorite t-shirt?
  • Jewelry, sexy shoes, stockings
  • Anything else that you think would be fun!

“I don’t want my pictures available to the public online.”

We know that these types of portraits are not something everyone is comfortable sharing.  So all online galleries are password protected, and can only be accessed by people you provide with that password.
We would love to use your images on our blog or galleries, but will only do so with your permission, otherwise they are for your eyes only.

“What types of sessions do you offer?”

We have two basic types of sessions: Boudoir Party sessions involve between 5 and 10 individual mini sessions for you and your friends.  These are a great way to get pampered for a day, hang out with your friends, and get some amazing images.  These sessions take place at a local hotel suite, or another location suitable for portraits.

If you would like a little more personal attention, we also offer individual sessions.  These sessions allow more time, and flexibility for more outfits, or settings.  If you have a special someone you would like to surprise with the images, the individual session offers a broader set of images to include in your book, calendar, or other specialty print item.

“How do I schedule a Boudoir Party, or Individual Session?”

Contact us to find a time that works for our team, and if it is a party session, find some options that may work for your friends.  Scheduling usually is done a couple weeks in advance, and hotel sessions are subject to hotel availability.

“What happens after my session?”

Selena & Tracy will select your best images, and edit them to make you look your best.   This editing usually takes 1-3 weeks after the session.  Once the initial edit is complete a private online gallery is created just for you to view your images, and order any additional prints of your favorite images. If your purchased package includes a proof book, or DVD slideshow, we will let you know when that is available for pickup, or it can be sent to you.  If you opted for the custom designed book, we will create the proof, and you will be able to make sure it is just right prior to printing.  Book printing can take between 2 and 4 weeks.
