FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO POSE!

I will be shooting one-on-one with you from start to finish, encouraging, posing and guiding you the entire time. I will direct you from the tips of your fingers, to the points of your toes… bringing out the best in each and every client, to showcase their personality and highlight their features.

Cancelations or rescheduling must be done in writing at least 72 hours before your appointment time to receive a full refund of your retainer. Your retainer is not refundable if you fail to show up for a scheduled appointment, cancel, or reschedule with less than 72 hours notice.
WHERE WILL MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
You Boudoir session will take place at our amazing boudoir studio located in Richmond BC. It is a large studio featuring beautiful boudoir sets, backdrops, and props. The setup at our studio easily allows us to customize a look that will make you fall in love with your portraits. You can choose an offsite location as well, like your home or a hotel instead, but it must be within a 30 minute drive from Vancouver and there is an additional fee of $100.
DO YOU PROVIDE OUTFITS FOR MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?
We do have some outfits, props, and jewelry for you to use. However, the selection is limited. It is recommended you bring your own outfit changes. Sexy lingerie, bra, panties, stockings and heels are a great choice, but a button down shirt and tie, or his favorite team jersey can be sexy too. We are happy to help you select outfits that will work best with your look and the background you choose. If you are having trouble finding the right outfit for your boudoir shoot or need something new but are not sure where to shop, let us know! We will gladly suggest to you some of our favorite lingerie stores.
HOW MUCH SKIN WILL I BE EXPECTED TO SHOW? WHAT STYLE OF BOUDOIR SHOTS DO YOU TAKE?
This is entirely up to you. You have full control over how much you do (or do not) show off in your boudoir shoot. We offer a number of different photography styles. If you do not want to show a lot of skin, we also offer sexy glamour photography. Your photographs will look like an image straight out of Vogue magazine. Whatever style you choose, you can be as provocative or modest as you like. This is all about making you feel comfortable, sexy, and happy with the end result!
CAN I PURCHASE MORE IMAGES?
Depending on package you will receive 10, 15 or 20 edited and retouched images. If you want, you can purchase more photos.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WOMEN OF ALL AGES (EVEN THOSE OF US WHO ARE NOT 20-YEAR-OLD MODELS)?
Whether you’re 20 or 60, our glamour boudoir shoot will bring out your inner diva and make you look HOT. Marina will work with you step-by-step, helping you strike the right poses, and move your body to capture the perfect photo.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Absolutely! In many cases, bringing a friend along is a great way to loosen up and have some fun. But be warned: Some women find that they feel LESS comfortable with other people watching, even close friends. So try to think objectively about how it would really make you feel before extending the invitation.
WILL MY BOUDOIR PHOTOS BE RETOUCHED TO HIDE IMPERFECTIONS LIKE STRETCH MARKS AND BLEMISHES?
Yes! We will start by posing you properly to hide anything you do not want to show, and our magazine-quality lighting will also help hide any wrinkles, blemishes, spots or bruises from the camera. Anything that does get through can be addressed with our professional glamour retouching. With that process, we will smooth your skin, remove stray hairs and help you lose a digital pound or two. You will look sexy, glamorous and most important, like a real woman. Our goal is to bring out the beauty that is already there and keep you looking natural and fresh, not like a plastic doll.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE MY BOUDOIR PHOTOS?
Your digital images will be provided to you as soon as the edits are completed. It can take up to two weeks for the edited images to be ready. This is just an estimate. Most of the time you will have them sooner. If you need your portraits within 24 hours, you can include rush processing for an additional fee of 100$.
