I believe that everyone, regardless of their age, photographs best in their natural element. With this in mind, most shots won’t be posed; however, I often hear that my clients don’t know how to pose for this type of session so I will have you do what feels comfortable and guide you to creating the most flattering angles for your body. Often times, extending your hip, shoulder, or neck towards the camera feels uncomfortable but looks flattering. Do expect me to say, “oooh, do that again!” and to run up and smooth your hair or shirt at least once. It’s ok to be nervous; most clients are! But please don’t worry – I will guide you through each pose and I am here to make you comfortable and feel beautiful!
KelCC Photography specializes in natural light photography and also has a portable studio for in-home backdrop sessions. Most boudoir sessions are in your home with the portable studio, which are best during the brightest time of the day and need to be in a room with adequate indoor lighting and enough space to move around/set up. They will also occur in your bedroom on your bed, and any other part of the house you’d like. Some have fun taking the pictures in flirty places like their kitchen in an apron. It simply depends on the look you’re going for!
Plan on a few different and versatile outfits such as silky nighties or lingerie… preferably whatever you feel most comfortable in! Many of my clients like to do a unbuttoned dress shirt shot. Also prepare jewelry accessories such as long necklaces, heels, a silk or cotton robe, and anything else you’d like to utilize.
after the session
About two to three weeks after your shoot (often sooner, but never later), I will send you a link to your online password-protected gallery to view your final images.
If you purchase digital files, they will be made available upon final payment via instant download by online gallery. This saves the environment – no need for a disc or thumb drive unless you request one – and saves you time as you can instantly download your images as soon as you’ve paid for them! This can be very helpful if you’re on a tight turn-around to create something special.
If you’ve purchased other items such as an album, canvas or prints, we’ll go over your order together and you will see a proof before it’s ordered About a week later, your gorgeous purchases will arrive at your doorstep.
