EXPIRATION – NO EXCEPTIONS
Your session must be COMPLETED by the expiration date. However, face value may still be used after the expiration date as a credit towards a session for the PURCHASE price, not the value of the voucher itself. For instance, clients purchased the deal at $99. They may use the $99 towards a FULL PRICE session with The Boudoir Loft.

ABOUT THE SESSION
Q: When should I book my photo shoot?
A: We book sessions Tuesday, Wednesday-Friday and Saturday's will be upon what is available. from 9AM-3PM.
Q: Can I book my session on a Saturday or Sunday?
A: Yes, but they book two months out so please rememeber you may not get a weekend.
Q: I have to work around my work schedule, is there any way I can do an evening session?
A: Unfortunately we can’t accommodate sessions in the evening. From time to time we do Summer Marathons at Hotels and will have evening appointments.
Q: Where does this shoot take place?
A: At our studio.
Q: How soon do you recommend booking?
A: As soon as possible! If you are doing this for a special occasion we recommend getting in for your shoot roughly 4-6 weeks before the date, 5-7 weeks if you are ordering a book. However, the sooner the better! It is much easier (and less stressful) if you book your appointment for a few months in advance. If you need your images returned within 10 business days there will be a rush fee applied of $50.
Don’t wait to book until the last month before your livingsocial or Groupon expires! We want to make sure that all of our clients get in for their shoots, but remember, with such a full calendar you must book way in advance.
If you wait until the last month to book and we do not have anything open the deal cannot be extended.
