Frequently Asked Questions
About Your Boudoir Photography Session:
We at Sweetheart Lane Boudoir want to ensure you are comfortable and have time to allow you to be at ease for your boudoir photo session to get the best possible shots for each and every client. Boudoir photography is all about body positivity and generally feeling good about yourself.
Things to Remember:
- You do not have to be perfect.
- You do not need to conform to anybody else’s notion of beauty.
- You must be comfortable in your own skin.
- Accept your imperfections as part of what makes you unique.
Boudoir photography is not always about titillation and seduction. It can also be about celebrating female sexuality and appreciating the sensuality of your figure. Celebrate your authentic self. Being sexy is a state of mind. This is not about enticing others to admire you, it is all about you seeing your own beauty again. We have access to professional hairstylists and makeup artists to make sure that you look your best for your session.
Boudoir photography is about finding confidence. No need to be shy, or nervous. This photo session is all about you looking good and taking on the world. We have access to excellent photo labs for printing your keepsakes from your session.
