Why Should I do a Boudoir Shoot?
Q & A
Let me ask you something? How much would you pay for super sexy, stunning pictures of yourself?
Why would you do this type of Photography?
Number one you are beautiful and deserve it, Second of all your men will love it! Most guys cannot resist the
site of beautiful women, even more so when it is the love of his/her life.
What does a session include:
Each session runs between an hour and an hour and a half. You will have a pre-consultation with me in some form, usually phone or email/text to establish the type of session you want to have. We will discuss how prerogative you would like to be, what your outfits will be, and some poses that will be appropriate for you and your session. I am not going to sugarcoat this-You can be classy or trashy but I will try to make it as tasteful as possible. it is up to you completely. At this time I am only doing women and not men & women together. It may be something I add in the future, but I do not want to take away from the feel of the shoot. I want to concentrate on the sensuality of a woman and not anything distasteful. Together we will set up a plan for your session so there are no surprises on the day of your shoot. This will help you to be more comfortable when you come in. This is not to say that you may want to try something more daring while you are here, this happens often. As you become more comfortable if you decide to do something that was not in the plan it is ok.
With your session, you will get all pictures (edited) and on a disk. You will also receive a trifold portfolio with your favorite 8 4x5 pictures in it. This makes a great gift for the hubby, wife, or significant other. Along with that, you will also have access to an app with your favorite photos that you and your significant other can download on your home screen. As the photographer I will edit things that I feel should be edited to make you look your best, you can however let me know if you would like things left as is, such as stretch marks, etc.
Once you book a shoot with me I will send you detailed information on what you should wear and do for your shoot. Cost of session itself is $400
Do you do my Hair & Makeup?
We do not include hair and makeup in our price. However, I work with brilliant makeup artists who range from $65-$85. they are all nothing short of amazing at what they do and will make you look absolutely beautiful. We also can have a hairstylist come as well but they vary in price. Know that I am a hairstylist as well so I will keep an eye out for hair troubles during your shoot. you can view and choose a makeup artist on my site and I can book them for you and send details. Keep in mind that for film, your makeup should be a lot darker than you want it to appear.
What should I bring to my shoot?
You should bring any outfits that we discussed together when making your plan. I also suggest bringing a robe to help you feel more comfortable in between changes etc. If you have done your own makeup please bring your lipstick for refreshing in between shots.
Can I bring my husband or boyfriend?
I highly recommend you do not. Believe it or not, sessions tend to be tenser when they are present.
How can I prepare?
I suggest you shave and trim all areas whether or not you plan on taking off clothes or not. You would be surprised how many people swear they will not take things off and get so comfortable during their shoot that they want to do more daring things. So be prepared. Do not tan for five days before your shoot., the coloring does not look good on film. I will also help you prepare by sending you an email with additional info when booked.
How soon will I get my portraits?
My turnaround time is super fast. In most cases, you will be able to view your session on the same day/ next day under certain circumstances could be longer.. As soon as you choose some favorites for your app I can prepare your disk and have it ready the next day. You also have access to download all photos straight from your viewing session. Watermark will not be on photographs once downloaded.
What is my investment?
I have always tried to keep things affordable for my clients by not charging what I am worth which is double or triple what I charge. I have over 21 years of experience and have won several best-of awards for Provo. This session is only $400, $350 without a printed portfolio. I have friends in the area charging thousands for the same sessions. But I believe every woman should do a boudoir session at least once in her life. A $50 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking. You may Venmo this if you wish.
How do I book a session?
Call or text me at 801-318-3291 to set up an appointment. You can also message me on Facebook my name is Danielle Gough Christiansen on there. Email is also acceptable- Danielle@danicphotography.com. Shoots are usually done Friday mornings but I try to work as best as I can with People.
How far in advance should I book?
I book up fast I recommend you book at least two months in advance. I may have openings but to be safe the sooner the better.
Do you do Men or Couples?
At this time I do not out of respect for my Husband and his wishes.
