Before your photo shoot, I will send you our Prep Guide with all of the details of what to bring with you to your shoot day, how to prepare, and what to expect. Honestly, the best part is that if you show up to the studio with a little bit of trust in us, we've got you.
When it's shoot day, you'll come to the studio with a fresh face, and we'll get you started straight away with our hair and makeup artist! After you're glammed up, we'll pick out outfits and start shooting!
I walk you through every pose AND do it with you.
You will be invited back into the studio 1-2 weeks after your photo shoot to view your images for the first time! (My favorite part!!) If you are coming from out of town, we will do this via video chat. I will have the BEST images ready for you to view and pick for your products. This is when you'll choose your images to purchase.
"WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!!
I can’t stress enough how EASY and FUN she made the whole experience. Literally ANYONE can do this, trust me!"
Professional hair and makeup is included with every session at our studio. You will get to sit back and relax in our makeup room while being pampered by our glam expert before your session starts. Whether you prefer to stay natural or want a more dramatic look, our stylist will accentuate your beauty.
WHAT'S INCLUDED +
"I'm a mommy of 3 and have never done anything like this. I was very nervous. I'm not photogenic, so I was worried to say the least.
I felt very comfortable with Taylor. She is amazing and her work is flawless.
I had no idea what the end results would be. When I finally saw my reveal, I was blown away!! I have never seen myself in such a beautiful & sexy way. She gave me a newfound confidence!" - C, Boudoir Client
I will have the BEST images ready for you to view and pick for your products.
Our pre-made collections will include an album and digital images, starting at $1550 are dependent on how big of an album you'd like and how many images you want included. Our a la carte menu will have albums individually starting at $899 with our 5x5 book.
A. No images are ever shared without our clients’ written consent. The images on our website are of real clients, from whom we have received signed consent forms to post their images.
My photography style is based on strategic poses and angles that artfully downplay any areas you may be concerned about. During the editing process, we take care to address minor blemishes and skin flaws, while also providing the option to remove scars, upon request.
Rest assured, we take great pride in ensuring your skin looks absolutely radiant. Our standard skin smoothing process can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks, but we also value your preferences. During your photo shoot appointment, you can specify your desired level of retouching for stretch marks, whether more or less.
Q: HOW MUCH DO YOU "EDIT OUT"?
Q: WILL YOU USE MY IMAGES ON YOUR WEBSITE/SOCIAL?
A: Black and white imagery is definitely my specialty and what I deliver the majority of my clients' images in. I believe it complements my style of boudoir and really emphasizes the woman in the photograph. However, I DO shoot color during your session as well! Typically, your gallery will land at an average of 80% B&W and 20% color. The color photographs show off beautiful skin tones and any color you decide to bring in your wardrobe.
Q: DO YOU SHOOT IN COLOR TOO? OR ONLY BLACK AND WHITE?
A. Every shoot is within the boundaries of my client's comfort zones. I walk you through every single pose and do them alongside you so you never have to come up with ideas on your own or feel silly doing them alone. It ends up being easy and we have a fun time laughing together!
Q. WHAT WILL THE SHOOTING PROCESS BE LIKE?
A. This is one of my most popular questions! My very most favorite look is a classic bodysuit. You can bring in pieces you already have in your closet and shop for a few new pieces. Some clients opt for a sheer white button-ups and a high waisted panty and others opt for classic lingerie. Many also choose to do an "In-the-sheets" set as their final look. Don't overthink wardrobe - once you complete the booking process with me, you'll receive a detailed prep guide.
Q: what should i wear?
Q. WHAT DO YOUR PACKAGES INCLUDE? HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT TO SPEND?
A. You'll have your Reveal Appointment to choose how you'd like to display your images. Clients are almost always shocked by how many photos they cannot live without from their session. They think they are going to be the one client that just doesn't get good photos...And they're always proved wrong (but with a smile!). Our packages are thoughtfully built based on our clients most frequent purchases as well as the high demand and limited availability. We offer collections starting at $1550 and an a la carte menu with albums starting at $899. And we offer convenient, zero-interest payment plans.
Q: WHEN AND HOW WILL I SELECT MY FAVORITE IMAGES FROM MY SHOOT?
A. We offer an in-person (or remote for our clients coming from out of town) photo reveal and ordering appointment 1-2 weeks after your photo session. We do this for a few reasons: first, for your convenience. We've gotten really good at our system for helping clients decide between images, showing similar images side by side for easy selection, and assisting clients with getting great variety for albums and the perfect wall art pieces. Because we do show a lot of epic images, it can be overwhelming to navigate on your own and we don't want our customer service to stop at the photo shoot. The in-person photo reveal is much appreciated by our clients and is our favorite part of the whole process!
Second, for security. While doing some sort of proofing gallery is industry standard for lots of different types of photography, boudoir can be more sensitive in nature. We take your privacy seriously, so the in-person photo reveal takes care of this!
Q. Can i make payments?
A. Yes! We break up the total balance into even weekly or monthly payments prior to your photo shoot OR at your Reveal appointment.. We also accept Paypal Credit which offers 6 months of interest-free payments. Once you're paid in full, the images are all yours!
Q. THE IMAGES ON YOUR WEBSITE ARE VERY TASTEFUL AND PRETTY, BUT WHAT IF I WANTED TO GET A LITTLE MORE...UM...RISQUE?
A. What you see on my website and on my social media feeds is a very accurate representation of what I offer in the "Saucy" department. I will shoot an array of clothed, partially clothed, tasteful nudes, exposed breasts and bums, all in a very classy style. If you're looking for anything more spicy, it just isn't what I offer. So if you love what you see on the website, I'm your girl.
Q: Do you offer couples boudoir?
A: No, I do not photograph couples or men. My specialty is posing women and creating beautiful art for them.
Q. Who does the hair and makeup?
A: Our artists know the perfect look for my style of photography -- and they also take into account what you are comfortable with! Check them out on Instagram, Emily (@FresnoMakeup), Amanda (make.up.by.manda) and Charissa (makeup_by_charissa). If you have a request for your artist, please contact me before booking your date.
One of my past clients said: "Luckily this where Taylor EXCELS! She poses you to a T and captures the most flattering angles and lighting. She does everything for you: tells you where she wants your body, hands, chin, eyes, etc. Its so easy!"
You don't need to change, you don't need to know how to pose for the images, and you ABSOLUTELY CAN pull off images just like this.
There is POWER in my posing/lighting knowledge--it's why I SPECIALIZE in this very specific, highly niché genre of photography.
I will show you exactly what to do. (And do it WITH YOU!)
04. Like every girl, my biggest concern was how my body would look.
03. Maybe when I lose 10, 50, 100 lbs.
02. All of the other women in these images look fantastic, but I don't look like them. No WAY she could make my butt look good.’
01. I have no idea how to pose or be sexy. Pretty sure I don't have a sexy bone in my body.
I promise, I've heard it ALL and it's totally normal to feel the bit of nerves sink in with you almost hit that *book* button. BUT--99% of the fears that are holding you back are MISCONCEPTIONS. You don't need to change, you don't need to know how to pose for the images, and you ABSOLUTELY CAN pull off images just like this.
