Boudoir Photography FAQ’s


What is a Boudoir Photoshoot?

Boudoir photography is a genre of photography that features mostly women (but men and couples also) in sensual photographs. From fine-art nude to lingerie, boudoir photography is all about capturing the beauty of the human body in all its shapes and sizes.

I’ve never done anything like this.

Our team has had years of experience coaching men, women & couples just like you through a boudoir photoshoot. We’re here to give you the experience you want that is tailored to your comfort level. By the time we’re through, your photos will look as effortless as if you were lounging about at home.

Can I bring my partner?

We also offer tasteful couples boudoir photography if your special someone is up for it.

Where is the studio located?

Our studio is located in Preston, Victoria.

When will I get to see my photos?

After the shoot, we schedule a screening to reveal your photos. This is generally within a week of the photoshoot, and the anticipation leading up to that moment is exhilarating we’re quite used to seeing our clients tear up when they finally see themselves.

Will you retouch my acne/wrinkles/cellulite?

We light and pose you to bring out your beauty and you rarely need airbrushing.

Can you make me look good even if I’m curvy/full-bodied?

Our mission is to give every type of client the opportunity to see within themselves the beauty that is already there. We specialize in working with all shapes and sizes.

I don’t look like a model. Do you work with everyday women?

We only work with everyday women. All photos on our website are real boudoir photography clients. Having confidence and believing in yourself is what makes fantastic pictures. Treating yourself to new lingerie and beauty treatments before the session is a definite confidence builder! The Boudoir photoshoots are all about feeling empowered, having fun, getting glammed up, dressed up, and letting your hair down and forgetting about all insecurities.

I don’t know how to pose. Will you guide me during a session?

Yes! You don’t need to worry about a thing. Clarke has over 10 years of experience in posing boudoir. So you can be sure that you always will be posed in the most flattering way and under the most flattering lighting.

I’m a plus-size woman—should I lose weight before my shoot?

No! You are beautiful as you are right now! Clarke has a lot of experience working with curvy and plus-size women. We can accentuate your curves and best features with just the right lighting and posing. Remember boudoir photography is not for models; boudoir photography is for everyday people.

What should I wear on my boudoir photo session?

When you book your boudoir experience, you’ll receive wardrobe styling emails that will give you ideas on where to shop, what to look for and how to dress for your body type! You also receive access to our glam Closet! Some Clients have been known to send us email images of themselves while they’re shopping to see if what they’re looking at will photograph well! Preparing a Pinterest board with outfit ideas that you love is also a great idea. Four outfit changes are included in your boudoir photoshoot. You are more than welcome to bring more and we will help you to narrow it down. Some clients bring a suitcase full! It’s always good to have options. haha.

Can my photos be private?
