Trust me, I know how intimidating the thought of a boudoir shoot is, but knowing a little more of what to expect can make all the difference 😉
Is the photographer and make up artists male or female?
We only make use of female make up artists and Jackie does all shoots herself
Will there be anybody else present?
Where will the shoot take place?
I have a studio in Centurion with chaise lounge, bed with white linen and the most gorgeous light. Should you want to use your bedroom or a hotel room we can certainly discuss it when you query.
Is the studio heated?
The studio is airconditioned (as long as Eskom plays ball)
Is your make up artist experienced with ethnic skin?
For sure, it is non-negotiable for me to only work with the best and their kit must be fully stocked for all skin types.
Do you provide props?
I do not but you are welcome to bring your own.
Will my pictures be shared online?
I take my client’s privacy very seriously. I would love to share all the beautiful images I take but I ask for pertinent permission for every shoot I share. If you don’t want anyone else but me and you to see your gallery, that is your right.
What should I wear and bring with?
I will guide you with ideas when we confirm the booking with a deposit but my philosophy in general is that I want to photograph you and not your wardrobe.
Will you photoshop my stretchmakrs/bruises/cellulite/abs?
My editing style is to make you look your best, but not to make you look like someone else. I will smooth out skin and remove blemishes but I do not morph and change what you look like, my job is to bring out the best in you, not change it.
Will you make me thinner?
I can take care of folds and bulges that would make you feel self-conscious but I do not believe in all-over body morphing. You should love yourself, not some photo-shopped fake version of you.
I am not comfortable in front of a camera, will you help me with posing?
Not only will I help you, my posing and guiding is very specific through-out the whole process. I do not want to leave you hanging and I do not expect everyday women like yourself to know how to pose, that’s my job…
How long do you take to finalize the pictures once the shoot has taken place?
Editing lead time is 2 weeks (4 weeks during peak time Nov to Jan) and any printing can take up to another 2 weeks.
