FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I book my session?
The best way to book a consultation or session is to start designing your shoot here. Or you can simply contact us here. You can also reach us by phone at (514) 781-7755 or e-mail us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have never done anything like this and I am not a model. What if I can't pose?
Many of our clients have never done this either. Our job is to help you and guide to pose in ways that flatter you and make you look and feel great. All you need to do is come in with a positive attitude and leave the rest to us.
What should I do to prepare? What should I wear?
We will discuss all these details during your pre-shoot consultation. But here are some suggestions for what to wear. Many women use this as an opportunity to buy new items. We recommend that you bring several different outfits and pieces. Bring items that you are comfortable in, that make you feel sexy, or items that your significant other loves to see you in. Full sets of lingerie, loose fitting shirts and tops, a body suit, and of course, all your favorite heels. And don't forget your favorite accessories and jewelry.
What about hair styling and makeup?
All our sessions include professional hair and makeup. Our talented hair & makeup artist will pamper you and make sure you look absolutely gorgeous for your shoot. Remember to plan a night out after your photoshoot because you will look and feel amazing.
Can I bring a friend to my shoot?
Yes, if it's because they really want to do a boudoir shoot also. We'll let you in on a little secret... we'll do a shoot of both of you separately during the session for the same session fee, and you will have a blast sharing the experience together. YES!!! (Don't tell anyone)
However, if it's just you doing the session, we prefer you come alone. We have found that when other people you care about are watching, it's harder for you to relax and connect with the photographer. We wouldn't want that to take away from giving you the most amazing photos possible.
Where will the photo shoot take place?
We offer our home for your shoot. With hardwood floors and lots of windows for natural light, we can use the space in any way you are comfortable with. We also have a fully outfitted professional studio in our home that we can use for certain themes. If you'd like to shoot at your home or at a location of your choice (hotel, castle, etc.), no problem for us. Additional charges may apply.
Our home is located on a picturesque land in Saint-Lazare, just west of Montreal. It is approximately 45-60 minutes from anywhere on the island of Montreal.
How long will the shoot last?
Generally, a shoot will last between 3 and 4 hours. However, our focus is on making your day unforgettable, so we take our time and work at your pace and take the time we need to make you happy. We also recommend that the shoot be during the day, starting mid to late morning, so we can take advantage of the beautiful natural light.
How does your pricing work and what's included?
Please view our Information page here.
Is there a minimum order requirement?
No. What you purchase is entirely up to you. No hard sell and no obligation to buy anything. You buy what you love. Our job is to take photos of you that you will fall in love with and want to buy them all.
Why do you not offer digital photos?
We do not sell digitals. However, we provide you with complimentary digital files of all the photos you purchase as prints or packages. We believe in this personalized experience and the tangible products we offer as they can be touched, held, and enjoyed in multiple ways.
Do you do other types of photoshoots?
Absolutely! We do contemporary portraiture for individuals, couples and families. We also offer complete personal branding photo shoots. Please contact us here and we will be glad to discuss your specific needs with you.
Do you put the photos in an on-line gallery for us to select the ones we like?
No. The in-person photo reveal and ordering session (2-3 weeks after the photo shoot) is the only occasion to see your photos after the shoot. It is a quick and enjoyable part of the experience that is simply the "icing on the cake". Under certain circumstances and for clients that travel from out of town for their shoot, we may be able to do the reveal and ordering session on Skype.
Will my photos be used on your website or on social media?
We will not use/post any photos without your written permission. Most of our clients love showing off their photos, some prefer to keep them completely private, and others somewhere in between. We would love to show your photos on our website so others can see what your experience was like. We respect your privacy. It is entirely up to you.
I have some "problem" areas. Do you retouch/Photoshop my photos?
We do our best to make you look amazing through proper lighting and posing. We only retouch as much as needed to enhance and perfect your photos. That includes some color correction, blemish removal, skin smoothing in some areas, and just a few tweaks to make the photos amazing. If you have any special retouching requests, we can certainly accommodate you, but there may be additional charges for major retouching.
What type of payments do you accept?
We accept credit cards (in person only), PayPal, and e-Transfers. And of course, cash.
What is your refund policy?
The session fee is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable, but will be credited for use within 6 months should you have to postpone your session. All sales made during the photo reveal and ordering session are final.
