FAQs about your Boudoir Photography

I’m really nervous. Is that normal?

It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir photography session, so don’t worry. Most of our clients are nervous until the session has gone on for a few minutes. You’ll have a relaxing hour or so in hair and make-up with plenty of refreshments. When we start the session, you’ll very quickly begin to loosen up. We often start you with a sexy dress and maybe a few pictures outdoors so you’ll get used to the camera and lose the awkward ‘camera face’ 

How do I know how to pose?

The good news is, you don’t need to know how to pose. We know how to pose you. It’s our job so you don’t need to worry about posing. We know all the tricks to create the most flattering angles for you, no matter what shape or size you are.

Do you provide the wardrobe?

We do not provide an extensive wardrobe, though we do have some individual pieces. We also have white shirts and fabrics which will enhance any boudoir session. In general though, we suggest you bring along your favourite outfits. If you need help choosing an outfit, we can definitely give you some suggestions, though and we also provide a style guide full of ideas. You can find the style guide HERE

Do your packages include hair and makeup?

Always! A boudoir session is all about the most beautiful glam you. Fabulous Hair and Make-up are essential and we’ll work with you to achieve a great look. The process of styling lasts around an hour and a half and in this time you’ll feel relaxed and pampered. Perfectly ready for your stylish boudoir photoshoot. Luxury from beginning to end.

What should I bring to my boudoir photography session?

For our sessions, we suggest two to three different outfits and any props you may want to incorporate. Need help choosing props? Check out our prep guide above. 

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, you can bring a friend if you think it will help you relax. However, sometimes an extra set of eyes has the opposite effect, even if it is a friend. They are more than welcome to come, but if they are making you uncomfortable, they can wait in the Hotel or make-up area while we go to the suites.

Will my session be with a male or female photographer?

The photographer is Dave Sander (Male) and has over 2 decades of experience photographing women. Every single photograph on this website has been photographed by him with no associate photographers. It’s the unique Madison Bou style which clients love so much. However, at no point is the client alone with just the photographer. At all times a female stylist is present. 

I’m not a model – are boudoir photos still flattering even if my body isn’t perfect?

Absolutely! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy. If you have any specific concerns, contact us and we can talk about it! Note… The women on our website are just like you.

Do you do outdoor boudoir sessions?

Yes.We have a beautiful wood. This of course is weather dependent and we ensure complete privacy.

Do you do touchups?

Yes. Photoshop is used extensively to create a fashion magazine style finish. Your images will never look over photoshopped. See the many thousands of pictures on our website for the finished images. (No double chins, cellulite, bingo wings, or ‘mummy tummy’ ) 

Do I have control over who sees my images?

Yes, most certainly. We will only share photos if you have given us permission and have approved the images for sharing. We respect your wishes and won’t post or share any images if you’d prefer they stay private.
