What To Expect From Your Boudoir Shoot With Sortie Boudoir

You have been thinking about booking your boudoir shoot but aren’t sure what to expect? We created a helpful rundown of what exactly to expect when you book a boudoir session with Sortie Boudoir!

The nervous-excitement has started to set in. What should you wear? What will the studio be like? Will it be fun? Breathe. We’re here to answer all of your questions and more. Whether this is your first or fiftieth photoshoot, we want you to feel completely at ease. Because, after all, this is about you feeling great about yourself! Here’s what you can expect from your fun and phenomenal photoshoot:

Step 1: The Vibe

Once you get to the studio you’ll probably notice a little something. Remember when we asked you what your favorite music was? Well now it’s the soundtrack to your day, and we’ve set up a playlist just for you.

Step 2: T-shirts & Teddy Bodysuits

The first thing we’ll do, when you get in, is to spread out all of those beautiful outfit choices (we recommend you bring 8-10 so we have a lot to choose from. We will shoot 4.). This is also when we’ll discuss the narrative of the boudoir shoot, and what feel you’d like to go for, based on the outfits you brought.

Step 3: Glamour Babe

After, once we’ve picked out your wardrobe choices, it’s off to hair and makeup. You’ll experience the true star experience with our expert artist as, together, you chat about what look you’re hoping to pin down. Don’t worry, this is a completely interactive experience! Feel free to ask questions, and to give input throughout the process. Not sure what look to go for? Check out our post for 3 Boudoir Looks To Boost Your Photo Shoot.

Step 4: Model Status

Now that you’re feeling (and looking) fabulous, it’s off to the shoot! We’ll start you off with the outfit you feel the most comfortable in, and then work through the other 3 outfits. Don’t stress about facial expressions or what poses you’ll be doing, we’ll coach you through each and everyone, and show you pictures along the way.

Step 5: The result…

Finally, two weeks after your shoot you’ll come back in for an ordering appointment. You’ll get to choose from 50 of your best photos, each beautifully retouched and magazine-ready. You will have the opportunity to choose your album or wall art designs right then and there. If you think you might want wall art to try to bring some pictures of the space you’re considering, to make envisioning it that much easier. Closets, bathrooms, and bedrooms are just a few of the spaces you can spruce up with your new photos.
