We'll discuss your preferences for hair and makeup, outfits, and any specific poses or shots that you would like to achieve. During this consultation, you can also ask any questions you may have about the photoshoot and we'll be happy to answer them.

This will help eliminate any chance of insecurity or discomfort during the session and ensure that you have a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Can I bring a friend?
Please do! We highly encourage bringing a friend to your shoot!
Be sure to bring someone who will bring positive energy and enthusiasm to your boudoir photography session.

Having a supportive and uplifting person by your side will make the experience even more enjoyable and memorable.

During this time, you can relax and have another champagne, watch some Netflix, or go and get some food from somewhere nearby.
what is the process to customise my products?
Once we are ready after the session, we will sit down with you and show you your photos on the big screen. This will give you the chance to make your selections for albums and products, and also customise the materials, arranging the photos, and adding custom messages etc. We want to make sure you have a great experience and are completely satisfied with your final product.
