The Torrid Boudoir Experience

Sessions, with complimentary hair and makeup, as well as complete access to our gorgeous wardrobe closet & styling, begin at $399.

Heirloom Products (including digitals, albums, and wall art) are purchased separately — pricing varies on customization.

From the moment you arrive for your photo shoot, prepare to feel pampered, sexy and empowered.

The Torrid Boudoir Experience…

isn’t just about the photos. In every conversation, and through your session and reveal, our team makes sure you are comfortable and relaxed. We want every client to leave their session feeling amazing, with a renewed confidence – like they can conquer the world!

When you arrive…

our team will immediately get to work. We will have some snacks and beverages for you to enjoy throughout the morning. Being a model is exhausting – you will understand what I mean by that after your session!

You can relax…

while a professional stylist takes care of your hair and makeup needs! Elizabeth, our photographer, will be prepping her gear and the studio for your session. This is your time to be pampered and enjoy yourself.

When hair and makeup is done…

Elizabeth will go over the outfits she’s pulled from our gorgeous, expansive boudoir wardrobe closet with you. Our closet has outfits in sizes XXS to 6X, and heels from size 5 to 13.  We also have jewelry & accessories galore!

Earrings, bracelets and heels…

Oh my! We have several accessories to accessorize your session! Sometimes there’s nothing like a cute pair of undies and a gorgeous necklace…and nothing else.

The Big Reveal!

Two weeks after your session, we will sit down for your gallery reveal + ordering appointment. You can relax and view your photos and choose your favorites for your album or to display in your home! Upgrades are available at this time.

Make sure to have a fun evening or afternoon planned!

Happy hour with friends or a date night with your partner is a great way to end your special day. After a few hours of pampering you’ll feel amazing and look stunning! If the session is a surprise for your partner, we can mastermind some ideas to explain the hair and makeup. “I was walking through the mall and the makeup counters weren’t full. They were bored and needed someone to make over!” We’ve been a part of LOTS of surprises and can’t wait to be a part of yours too!

A special gift…

just for you, on your way out. Because you’re beautiful and because we truly love our clients, you’ll receive a fun ‘lil swag bag of goodies as we say goodbye.

Do

DRINK WATER
One week prior to your session you should increase your water intake. Well hydrated skin photographs beautifully and has a healthy glow.

MANI/PEDI
Your nails can make or break a photograph if they are not well maintained. I recommend you stick with neutral shades — anything from black, white, grey, nude, French or American manicures, etc… They seem to photograph the best for boudoir shots. Here is a fun article about which nude color to choose: “The Best Nude Nail Polishes for Your Skin Tone”.

LASHES
Consider treating yourself to some eyelash extensions a few days before your session, if you’d like, though false lashes are included in the makeup styling. Extensions or false lashes are a must! They help accentuate your eyes and make them really pop in your photos.

THOSE PEARLY WHITES
Whiten your teeth before your session, if you’d like. There are tons of new teeth whiteners that you can grab at your local grocery store these days!

SKIN
Moisturize your hair and skin.

REST
Get a good nights sleep for at least two nights before you step in front of the camera.

EAT
Make sure to eat a small meal the morning of your session.  We will also have some snacks and beverages for you.  Our sessions last about 3 hours and you’ll need your energy to hold the poses! Trust me – you’ll have a whole new level of respect for models after your shoot!

DRINKS
Grab your favorite bottle of wine on your way if you want something special while getting ready, if you’d like. Otherwise, we’ve got you covered.

WARDROBE
We have a gorgeous wardrobe closet ready & waiting for you.  We also have heels and lots of beautiful accessories. If you have something special you’d like to wear, please definitely bring it along.

Don’t

FAKE TANNING
NOT a good idea! If you get a natural tan from the sun, that’s okay. It’s the fale stuff that looks really orange on camera, and not a bronze-y glow.

PANIC DIETING
When we decide to have boudoir portraits taken the first thing we typically panic about is our weight, but PLEASE DO NOT PANIC DIET or stress about your weight.  I am an expert at posing, lighting and angles of every single body type.  Also, and this may sound strange, but I would actually prefer you come to me when you feel your worst…that way I can PROVE to you that you are amazing and worthy RIGHT NOW!

TIGHT CLOTHING OR UNDERGARMENTS
The morning of your shoot, please avoid wearing super tight elastic, to avoid lines on your skin. Maybe wear a button up shirt and some loose-fitting draw string pants. Or slip on a loose dress.
