The Experience

I am feeling a bit nervous, is this normal?
It is normal for most people to feel nervous before and when they first arrive. Most of us are nervous in front of the camera fully clothed, so I understand how nerve wracking the thought of doing this can be. The first thing to think about is that you're doing it. So you must feel at least confident enough to have picked up the phone. The second thing is that we are here to help you celebrate your natural beauty and to create beautiful artistic photographs of you; photographs that you'll treasure from now until the end of time. Boudoir is not about getting naked and bearing it all. It's about you and what makes you feel sexy. We are here to support you in whatever way we can. By the end of the session everyone says how much fun they had and how much more comfortable it was than they thought it would be.

Will you post my images on the internet?
We respect the privacy of our clients and we only display images on the web that have been approved by the client. For your own private viewing, we will also provide you with a password-protected online gallery so that you can order prints or albums.

How many outfits should I bring?
We encourage you to treat yourself to something new whether sensual, sexy, fun, or flirty! Whether its a new bra and panty set or a beautiful camisole, new lingerie can make any woman feel great. You may want to bring something that belongs to your significant other... a sports jersey, button-down shirt, a tie, hat, etc. Bring heels to go with some of your outfits and jewelery too. Whether you are trying to achieve a number of different looks or just want some diversity, your wardrobe plays a big part in your shoot and will allow me to deliver a great variety of images to you. We can also, happily, provide you with ideas on theme and where to purchase different items before your session. We also provide you with a list of three lingerie stores that will provide you with advice and fit you properly. Mention that you are doing a shoot with Tease Boudoir and you will also receive a discount!!

Are the photos retouched?
Every print that you order, whether for a folio or a signature gallery wall piece, is carefully retouched and fine-tuned to create beautiful prints that look natural. We remove wrinkles, crows-feet, under-eye bags, pimples, excess shine, cellulite, moles and scars while keeping it true to you. If you have a specific desire for retouching please just let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

How long until I receive my images? 
We do same day reveals therefore your images will be viewed 1.5 after your session.  

Should I bring a prop or two?
Props can make your images special for your significant other. Some ideas include flowers, cowboy hat, motorcycle helmet, birdcage veil, and props relating to your partners's profession or personal interests. 

I've never done this before, how will I know what to do?
Do not fret! We are here for you in every way. Our team will work with you to create just the right look. I will direct you to pose in the most flattering, fun and sexy ways. Using different camera angles and lighting, we will work to play-up your best assets and simply not focus on your least favourite areas (unless of course they're his favourites).
