Here are the different types of boudoir sessions we offer (Part 1) | Atlanta Boudoir Photographer
Now that Halloween has come and gone it is basically December and basically Holiday season, right? Seriously though, I saw a Target commercial yesterday... on November 1st... for Christmas. It's only 1-ish month until we start the traditional gift-giving ritual of gathering together to over-indulge on pie whilst drowning in an ocean of wrapping paper. I can't wait!
Every year we get the privilege of booking up our holiday season with clients that cannot wait to give the gift of their boudoir photos. Of course we also have plenty of clients that are GIFTED a boudoir session by someone that loves them (or is just the best gift-giver ever). I wanted to show off the different boudoir session types that we offer so that when booking for the holidays (or for any time!) you can know exactly what your boudoir session will include, as well as determine which session is right for you!
There are three main types of shoots that are available to book with OWN boudoir. When an inquiry for pricing and information comes in, it can be hard to discern which shoot is right for you and will serve your boudoir needs best… and yes I say NEEDS bc I’m a big fan of NEEDing to have a personal experience like this! You can be here in Atlanta or you can be in a completely different area (that photo above is from the Hotel Monaco in Chicago!).
The first thing you should know about booking a boudoir session with OWN boudoir is that all of our shoots (with the exception of one), and all products are priced a la carte. This means that when you book your boudoir session with me, you will book the session separately from any albums, prints, or digital images that you’ll get after your session!
I’ve chosen to operate with a la carte pricing because it allows you to have more flexibility over how you choose to display your boudoir images. Rather than forcing you into a package that includes a product you might not be crazy about, you have the choice over which products you take home with you! A la carte pricing is also great because you are also not required to make a purchase at all! What if (heaven forbid) you don’t like your images? First off, we would do your session again because that means I didn’t do my job correctly. Secondly, I don’t want you stuck with an album of images that you don’t love.
Our first session that we offer - and what I'll be going over in detail today - is the Base session. I know, I know.... the name is boring, but let's just say I've saved my creativity for when I photograph you.
This session serves as the foundation for the other boudoir shoots that we offer. A base boudoir session with us gives you the most flexibility with add-ons and a la carte products. Currently, our Base session includes your boudoir session in-studio, three outfit changes, a $100 credit toward your a la carte products, and an in-person viewing appointment. Your viewing appointment happens about a week after your session and you'll see all of your final images fully edited and ready for selection.
A Base session does not include hair and makeup, but as I mentioned above, it gives you the most flexibility toward customizing your session! With the base session you have the option of adding on additional outfit changes, hair and makeup (or one or the other!), and your product preference.
We get a lot of questions about how long our sessions are. While I do not give my sessions a time limit, a base boudoir session with me will typically last around one and a half hours. When you arrive in-studio, I’ll have your favorite music playing –loudly–, a selection of your preferred snacks and beverages (let's pop that champagne or inhale some gummy bears), and we’ll get right to work! We will have completely planned out your session before you arrive (more on this later!) so that we can start almost as soon as you enter the studio door (and after a glass of champagne).
The current pricing for your Base boudoir session with OWN boudoir is $400.
