First, a phone consultation with Jamie Pfister (owner/photographer) is required before all couples’ boudoir sessions to ensure that everyone is on the same page about what to expect and to make sure the couple understands our studio’s policies regarding couples’ photo shoots. (For example, men are required to wear underwear at ALL TIMES during the photo session.)
On the day of the photo shoot, we will begin by looking through the wardrobe options you both brought in and discuss which outfits we think will look best on our unique boudoir studio sets. Once the outfits have been chosen, professional hair & makeup services will be provided for our female clients, which takes approximately 1-1/2 hours. During that time, the photographer will be busy planning out the photo shoot. Once both partners are ready, the photographer will give a quick spiel to explain the order in which she’ll be photographing your wardrobe, as well as a run-down about how the posing process works. Then, it’s show time!
Now, you should know that a boudoir session at The Adore Girls’ studio is always a goofy, good time, and our couples boudoir sessions are definitely no exception! There’s always good music playing, and we’re constantly cutting up with our clients throughout the photo shoot. This is why we often say, “Your boudoir photos will be super sexy, but the process is not.” In fact, this is a great time to reiterate that, even though a couple’s boudoir photos might look like they were only seconds away from doing “the deed” during the photo shoot, we can assure you that is NEVER the case at our studio. We’re just really good at what we do. 😉
While we’re on this subject, though, we are also sometimes asked about what happens if a male client becomes visibly aroused during the session. Believe it or not, this actually hasn’t happened as much during our couples’ boudoir sessions as you might expect, but it DOES occasionally happen. (After all, we’re photographing human beings, not robots!) If this issue “comes up” during a couple’s shoot (see what we did there?), we simply give the gentleman a moment to think about his Mom or envision sad, homeless puppies, or whatever else he needs to think about until he is ready to resume the session. (Side note: We actually had a couple tell us once that, to avoid having to deal with this type of situation during their photo shoot, they decided to have sex before going to the studio, just to get it out of their systems, so to speak. We have no idea if that strategy works for everyone, but hey…feel free to give it a try!)
After the photo session is finished and you and your partner have gotten dressed, you’ll sit down with the photographer to schedule your Image Debut & Ordering Session appointment. This is when you’ll return to view a gorgeous slideshow of your boudoir images and decide which digital photos and/or products you’d like to purchase! The Image Debut usually takes place 1-2 weeks after the photo shoot, and you can expect it to last for about an hour (depending on how decisive you are).
