You may be considering a boudoir style photoshoot because you seen some pictures a friend has had done or maybe you’ve read about the boudoir phenomenon in the glossy magazines. The first question you might ask when you find a photographer is how much for a picture and then been shocked to discover that a boudoir experience can cost hundreds of pounds.
Why are boudoir experiences so expensive?
Actually, at Madison Bou, we believe our experiences are great value and many other experiences can work out being a lot more costly and here we’d like to show you why…
When you book a photographic experience, the most important thing you’re paying for is time and experience. Just like a man or woman armed with an expensive monkey wrench may or may not be a good plumber, a man or woman with a camera may not be a good photographer. Experience and expertise count for a lot and will dramatically determine just how good your pictures are. Great pictures need are created by building a strong rapport with each client and by spending time with them to bring out the best in them. The post production in photoshop takes time and expertise as well.
A typical boudoir photoshoot experience for us includes an hour and a half in hair and make-up (Really, good hair and make-up is essential for a shoot like this) and then at least two hours in the shoot itself. Everyone’s different with different comfort levels and anxieties and every shoot takes a different amount of time to reach a level where the client looks natural and totally at ease in front of the camera. To do this effectively from the photographers point of view, can take years of experience. Youngsters just starting out may well be technically adept but few have the social skills required to put a 40 something mum at ease with her body.
It’s this kind of experience that you’re paying for. Then of course, after the shoot itself, 4-5 hours in post production before the images are suitably ready for viewing…Many more hours are spent creating one magazine cover, so why shouldn’t you expect at least something as good as magazine quality from your pictures? Why not? You think you’re not as good as a model, right?
Well, what if we show you that you can be as good as a model in a magazine?
That may well be something worth paying for, right?
Our Boudoir experiences are all unique to you.
Kath, featured here, wanted some boudoir but also wanted plenty of clothed pictures. ‘Sexy’ is a state of mind and not about the clothes you wear. In fact, you’ll see from her review above, Kath said she had nothing to wear and yet we found plenty between us to create some stylish and fashionable images she was delighted with. I don’t think she really believed in herself they way we believed in her. We saw how amazing she looked as soon as she arrived. I think she was amazed when she saw exactly what we saw, through our eyes.
Investing in a Madison Bou Experience is a real investment in yourself. The return on your investment will often last for decades.
Kath told us “I’m in my late 40’s not ever feeling I was pretty, always been lacking in self confidence and feeling low” and yet after her experience said “My body is normal for an over 40yr old who has had 2 kids and breast fed them both, so I should be proud of it and that’s what these shoots did for me:They made me feel like an attractive, sensual person. The worries about my body just shedded away”
Clients who want to feel empowered, build confidence, feel attractive again, start enjoying how they look, possibly for the first time in years…. Well, these clients believe we offer amazing value for money.
All our products last for many decades and are made from the finest materials from the worlds best printers and will prove to be one of the best gifts you could ever give yourself.
Most Boudoir Experiences will cost many hundreds of pounds, not just the good ones. Unfortunately, if you look at your pictures and still feel bad about yourself, whatever you pay for them will seem very, very expensive. It’s why we take what we do very seriously.
It’s great honour and a huge responsibility to show you just how beautiful you really are.
