Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS BOUDOIR?
A boudoir is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term comes from the French verb, “bouder,” meaning “to pout.” At Room 3307, boudoir photography is all about creating intimate, tasteful and modern portraits with a glamorous twist. Although these portraits are often given as a gift to a significant other, our goal is to leave you feeling empowered, sexy, and proud of who you are. We want these portraits to be a gift to YOU as well. No pouting allowed here!
HOW DO I MAKE SURE I’M PREPARED FOR MY BOUDOIR SESSION?
The first step is to set up your consultation with us in our studio or over the phone! You can see our shooting space, get to know us, share your ideas for your shoot and learn more about us and what we can do for you. We’ll talk about your outfits and accessories as well as create a game plan for your session. Don’t wait ’til the last minute to purchase your outfits! We suggest making a day of it and going shopping when you have the time to really enjoy the process. Solo or with a close friend or two, we feel that this time is an extension of your experience with us! Give yourself at least a week before your shoot to do your shopping, and be sure to choose shoes and accessories to match each outfit. Drink plenty of water and get lots of rest the day before your shoot to give your skin a healthy glow and reduce dark circles under your eyes. On the day of your session, wear loose fitting clothing to avoid noticeable marks on your skin, and arrive to our studio with clean skin (no makeup) and clean, dry hair. We’ll take care of the rest!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
What makes you feel sexy? When you feel good in what you’re wearing, your confidence shows. We’ll have time for three outfits, but we always recommend bringing four to five outfits to choose from. I will be more than happy to chat with you over the phone or in person and give you tips and ideas to make your shoot successful!
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I ARRIVE FOR MY BOUDOIR SESSION?
When you arrive, we’ll first hang up your outfits and then serve you a mimosa. We’ll provide a robe for you to change into and then you’ll begin your makeover with one of our awesome stylists from Style Hair and Makeup! Your makeover will take approximately 90 minutes, so this is your time to relax and let us pamper you. We’ll look through your outfits and plan the order in which you’ll wear them. There will be music playing, champagne and refreshments…and a completely relaxed atmosphere. You should expect to have fun!
WHAT IS THE PHOTO SHOOT LIKE?
Our photo shoots are completely laid back and relaxed! There’s no pressure at all, and we guide you through every pose. As we direct you, we’re also looking out for stray hairs, any tags that might be showing, and crooked jewelry…it’s all about the details! It's very important that you know that we don't expect you to know how to pose. That is our job! We just ask that you trust us, even when you feel funny or weird in the pose that we put you in. We promise we know what we are doing! We play music (feel free to bring your own playlist on your mobile device) and move around the studio shooting as we’re inspired. Our goal is for you to have fun while we bring out as many different sides to you as we can: the sassy side, sultry side, silly side, smiling side, and sexy side! How many sides do you have?
WHO WILL PHOTOGRAPH MY BOUDOIR SESSION?
All boudoir sessions will be photographed by Carolina.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND TO MY BOUDOIR SESSION?
Sure! Feel free to bring a female companion to your session. You’ll be able to hang out together during the hair and makeup portion of the day, but we prefer to keep your photo shoot private.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE MY IMAGES?
This is so fun for us! Believe it or not, we’ll have your proofs ready for you to view in only about an hour! Looking that amazing can work up an appetite, so after your shoot you will step out for a little lunch break, we’ll prepare your images for your viewing and ordering consultation. When you get back to the studio, we’ll debut your images for your instant gratification. Let me repeat that, you will see your images on THE SAME DAY of your shoot!
