The Experience | A Boudoir Session With MSP Boudoir
Okay, so you're here...WELCOME! Maybe you have been wondering about boudoir photography for a while, maybe this is a new interest, or maybe you're just curious!
No matter why you're here, I'm here to give you all the info you need to know about a boudoir experience with Bolivar, Missouri's luxury boudoir studio, MSP Boudoir!
(I've included some BTS photos and session photos from one of my favorite sessions and amazing client, Majesti!)
The experience starts with scheduling a complimentary consultation! During the consultation we will go over your reasons for wanting to schedule a session and what you are looking to get out of your session. Serving you as best as possible and giving you the experience you deserve is such a priority for me, I like to make sure we are on the same page before moving on. Once we both decide that we are a good fit, we will go over everything included with your session fee. Next we will review the packages I offer. I offer a variety of packages/products to appeal to different needs and budgets. My goal is to be totally transparent and to prepare you for your Image reveal and ordering appointment. After we have gone over all of the information, we will choose a date for your session. I will then send you an online contract and invoice. Once that is signed and paid, you are officially on my schedule!
Once you are scheduled, I will send you our boudoir prep guide! This guide will go over all of the information you need to prepare for your session. It will include everything from preparing your body and mind to choosing your wardrobe, and so much more!
When you arrive at the studio on the day of your session, you will go straight into hair and makeup and spend about an hour getting pampered by our talented stylist, Mellissa! Once your hair and makeup is complete, you and I will go through all of your wardrobe choices and decide which piece/look you would like to start with.
I love giving my client's plenty of options to choose from, so I don't limit the number of outfits or sets we shoot with! Whatever we can fit into your session time, we will! One of my client's all-time favorite sets that I recommend to everyone is the shower set! It may surprise you when we use it! (If you know, you know!)
I am also in the process of offering additional set options - Blogs on those will be coming soon!
When you are ready to change into your first outfit, I will give you a quick reminder that this is a safe space, it is your session, and you are in charge. I am here to support and encourage you and walk you through this experience.
Once you change and are ready to start, we will let the fun begin!
We will spend about 60-90 minutes in the photography portion of your experience. This time is filled with a lot of fun, laughter, and a lot of me saying "Oh my goodness! That's you!" as I show you the back of the camera - I literally can't help it... I get SO excited!
Once we have finished, you will leave the studio to grab lunch. If you don't feel like going far, We have some great restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques right here on the square with us!
I'll spend the next hour to hour and a half semi-editing your photos! Once they are done, I will send you a text and have you head back in to the studio. We will sit down together and go over your incredible experience and images one by one. After we go through them all, we will go back through and categorize them into YES/MAYBE/NO categories. This will give you a good visual on which package is close to what you want, if you have not already chosen one. We will continue to do this until you have exactly what you want! Once everything is perfect, we will fill out an ordering form and complete payment.
Over the next two weeks I'll have your final images ready and design your album/products. Once you've checked off on the final design, your order will be sent. As soon as I receive your order (within a month) I will quality check it, gift wrap it, and give you a call to come in! Watching my client's hold their images in their hands is one of my favorite parts of this experience... it just hits differently.
My hope, my goal... is that after this experience, you have a deeper love for yourself. You are kinder to yourself. That you walk with more confidence and you dream a little bigger.
I truly believe that every single person who walks through my doors is beautiful and worthy, and I 100% believe that this experience can change your life.
I know it changed mine, because I wouldn't be here - doing this - if it hadn't have.
(But that story is for another day).
