Boudoir Photography FAQs

Will my photos be on the internet?

Not unless you say it’s ok! Every client I feature on my blog has given me written permission to post her images. If you aren’t comfortable with any images being shared, that is completely fine, just let me know! Read my complete policy about client privacy here: http://jenniferwilliams.com/privacy/

I have cellulite/stretch marks/acne. Can you get rid of that?

In most cases, yes*. Removal of acne, acne scarring, stretchmarks, and cellulite is part of the retouching process. What I don’t do is put your face on someone else’s body or ‘take off’ 30lbs. If there is something you feel self-conscious about, we can use poses and lighting to emphasize your best features instead.

I’m older than (or not as thin as) the girls on your website, can I still book a session?

Of course! I feel bad that people even ask this question! I have shot with many women over 50 and well into the plus sizes. Not everyone is comfortable with their photos being in my online portfolio so I can’t show a lot of examples. What I can promise is that I will create images to flatter YOU and best show your personality. I believe every woman is beautiful and it’s my job to show you just how gorgeous you are.

Do I bring my own lingerie, or do you provide the outfits?

You need to bring your own lingerie to the photo shoot, if you want to do a ‘white sheets’ look, I provide the sheets. Select outfits that suit your personality and body shape, and complement your skin tone. Once you book your shoot I send a detailed email with outfit ideas, suggestions, and recommendations of where to shop. You can get some ideas on my Pinterest page as well: http://pinterest.com/boudoirstudio/

What about hair and makeup, do I do it myself?

I highly recommend adding makeup and hairstyling with Kelly. I’ve been working with her for 12 years and not only is her work exceptional, it makes a huge difference in the end result of your images. Even a ’no-makeup’ look is best achieved with a professional! If you decide to book Kelly, she will consult with you before the shoot day to discuss the look you’d like to achieve or advise you if you aren’t sure what to ask for.

Can I bring a friend to my shoot?

Generally I prefer to work one on one with my clients, simply because sometimes an ‘audience’ can make you feel more self conscious.

I’m ready to book a shoot, what’s next?

Fill out my contact page, and I will send you package options and add ons. Once we pick a date I will send you a booking proposal and contract. The contract must be signed and a non-refundable retainer is due to reserve your shoot day/time. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks before the day of your shoot, and payment can be made with credit card through my online booking system. I also accept e-transfer! Payment plans are available if you need a bit of flexibility in order to afford the package you really want to book.

I’m not sure if I want an album or not, can I decide when I see my photos?

Absolutely. After the shoot I will send you a password protected online gallery for you to select your final images. If you decide to order an album (they’re gorgeous, check them out here), payment must be made in full at the time of ordering. I do not work on product orders without full payment in advance.

I can’t make my shoot date, can I reschedule?

Absolutely. Things come up and sometimes a date no longer works, so I’m happy to make the changes for you. You can reschedule your shoot once without penalty with a minimum 21 days notice. If you need to reschedule with less than 21 days notice, a non refundable rescheduling fee of $500 is due in order to reschedule your shoot day. Any balance paid is not refundable or transferable if you decide to cancel or you don’t show up for your appointment. When you sign your contract, I stop offering that date to other people, thus turning away anyone who may have been interested in shooting that day.

What is your refund policy?

Due to the custom nature of photography, the session price and any products ordered are non-refundable. You have final say on the retouching and any custom album design and nothing goes to print without your approval.

Where do the shoots take place?

In Vancouver, I shoot in a luxury hotel suite or other suitable space. Exact location will be confirmed and sent to you prior to your shoot.

What else should I know?

I have been shooting boudoir since 2009 and have photographed well over 1000 boudoir sessions! Photo shoots are available to women aged 18 and over (you may be asked to provide ID).

How does it all work?

Below is my behind the scenes video, so you can get an idea of what to expect during a shoot.
