In this guide I'll be giving you the rundown on your upcoming boudoir session Investment from what to expect during the session, clothing and location ideas and even a FAQ section where you can see answers to sonte of people's most common questions leading into a Boudoir session.
WHAT IS BOUDOIR?
One deﬁnition goes on to say, 'a beautifully decorated room used in the past by a woman for sleeping, dressing, relaxing, and entertaining’.
It makes sense that boudoir photography is most commonly understood as women in various forms of undress in a bedroom. While boudoir photography has formerly been known as a way for women to give saucy portraits to their partners, boudoir has changed... for the better.
Boudoir is all about bringing out your inner beauty and letting it shine for all to see without the excess layers. It's nothing but you and it's one of the most empowering experiences you can have. No matter your gender identiﬁcation, boudoir can be an amazing way to connect with yourself, spark your conﬁdence, and just have fun letting lose for a session!
Boudoir, by new deﬁnition, is owning your inner beauty and stepping into the truth of who you are to tap into your inner-feminine that has been begging to be released. It's for you.
WHAT TO WEAR:
During your shoot you will get to decide which level of undress is most comfortable for you. Some clients end up fully nude while others opt for more modest bodysuits. It's all about what works for you-- what makes you feel conﬁdent, secure, and like your inner feminine wiles are ready to come out to play.
LILAC ROOM has an amazing studio space that we host our boudoir sessions in that is perfect! Lots of natural light, gorgeous bedding and a beautiful set up. Studio is private and the perfect safe space for you to feel comfortable to be completely you! The beauty of the studio is the variety of props we have available to match your unique style.
Head into the wild with us as you release your inner feminine! Outdoor boudoir session as becoming more common as people look to connect more to nature to feel their beauty. Beautiful, wildﬂower ﬁlled clearnings in woody forests, glistening streams, and sandy dunes are all beautiful places to feel your inner wild rise up and shine.
Depending on your unique vibe and style, a hotel may be the perfect place for your session. Think vintage grandeur or sleek, modern styling. Hotels generally have large windows and sheer curtains making them the perfect space for boudoir! This session is all about you so if you envision a hotel, let's do it!
If your bedroom is the place you feel the most conﬁdent, then let's shoot at your home. The perks of being in your own home is the variety of images-- you could get steamy in the shower, seductively sip your coffee, or playfully wear your partner's shirt if you plan to share the images. This also allows the carefree fun of having a pet appear in your images and can give you the conﬁdence to reimagine your home as a place for you to be your most conﬁdent self.

WHAT IF I DON'T FEEL 'SEXY'?
Sexy is a word that is thrown around A LOT these days. Our idea of sexy has been reﬁned through the years by mass media and marketing and a lot of people don't 'feel sexy' because they don't ﬁt into the mould of what society says 'sexy' is. You know what we say? You ARE sexy because the sum of who you are makes you a beautiful person! Your personality, quirks and courage make you sexy. Done and done.
WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO WEAR?
Never fear, the Studio Closet is here! The Studio Closet is ﬁlled with a variety of outﬁts that you can use that will bring out your conﬁdence!
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY 'RETOUCHING'?
We don't do extensive retouching when the retouch our images. Trust us, you'll be able to recognize yourself in your photos. We only retouch images to enhance you and the overall image. Examples would be adding in some dramatic lighting, smoothing out some hair ﬂyaways, or removing a pesky eyelash that maybe fell out when you were blinking. It's the smallest touches you won't even notice.
Your images are yours and I will not show them to anyone or put them online unless I ask for permission and you grant it. Your privacy is of utmost importance to me.
DO I NEED TO HAVE MY HAIR AND MAKEUP DONE?
For our top two packages, we provide hair and makeup services. Generally, hair and makeup is nice to have done so you feel extra conﬁdent. When your photo is taken, it can be easy to look more washed out than you do in real life. Because of this, it's nice to have your makeup done to really enhance your look so your features stand out on camera. While it is not a necessity to have your hair and makeup professionally done, we recommend taking a little extra care when doing your own makeup to be sure it pops on camera.
DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes! Payment plans are available on your investment. I also accept all major credit cards.
