WHAT TO EXPECT
Here at The Boudoir Loft, we try to make you feel as comfortable as possible. We understand this is often our clients first time modeling and may be shy or nervous. We have an all female staff, mimosas, a private changing area, all the things you need to make you feel comfortable! (Please note: at this time we do not provide clothing)
Read our Preparing For Your Shoot document here.
When you arrive at the location of the shoot we will greet you in the lobby introduce ourselves and get you a mimosa, or water or coffee.
Being nervous is very normal. That is one reason we love it when our gals use our salon services, as it is a "get to know you" time. We can gab (as girls do), talk about the shoot, and get to know each other. You are in good hands.
If you choose to take advantage of our hair and make-up services, that will take place in our private salon on site.
Please visit our gallery of before and after make-up and hair clients. To add make-up and hair is only $120 for both and can be paid for the day of the shoot or prior based on package. Friday, Saturday and Sunday appointments are reserved for make up and hair clients first.
At this time you will get to talk about how your shoot will go. We will also discuss the lingerie/clothing options you brought to see what works best for your shoot!
From our experience, we highly recommend bringing extra outfits as most girls come in nervous, but relax and want so much more than they planned for. You do have options at the time of the shoot to add on additional outfits.
Once you get settled into your changing room, we provide you with a warm and fuzzy robe. You will dress in private and call us when you are ready.
NOW IT'S TIME FOR YOUR SHOOT
Now it is time for your shoot to begin! Depending on the number of changes you have chosen, your shoot could last 30 minutes to two hours.
Don't worry too much! During your shoot, we help pose you, make sure your garters are straight, hair is smooth, and dress you if needed--we are corset lacing pros!
You are going to see each photo as it is taken so you know that you ARE actually doing as great as we think you are!!! We promise it is more fun than you can even imagine!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER?
After you have changed back into your normal clothes, you will meet us in our check-out room to discuss your package and products options. See our Products page for al a carte options. At this time we will go over the final steps in choosing your photos for books or prints, add-ons, and final product choices.
Once you have decided your final products, then we say our goodbyes. You will be hearing from us via email from that point on unless you come to pick up prints.
After your shoot, the raw images (unedited) will be sent over to you in a private, personalized email the email address you provided. Once you've chosen your favorites, you will send us the file numbers and we will begin your edits, which can take two to three weeks.
You can review our After Your Shoot document here.
*Please note turn around time on edits and books can vary, this depends are the time of year, how busy we are, and how busy the printing company is. Remember if this is a very special occasion please contract us a few months in advance. If it is a last minute idea then we do have rush fees that will apply to get the product rushed from our printing company. These fees are something they require.
