Booking your boudoir session in advance offers several advantages. When you schedule your session ahead of time, it allows us to secure a date within your ideal session time frame, ensuring that we can accommodate your needs and preferences. Additionally, planning ahead gives everyone ample time to prepare for your session, including selecting outfits, gathering any props or accessories, and addressing any questions or concerns you may have.


Once your session has concluded, we will showcase your gallery and a few digitally mocked-up products during your in-studio Reveal & Ordering Appointment scheduled 7 to 21 days after your session. During this appointment, you'll have the opportunity to view your custom-enhanced gallery on a large-screen TV and decide which products and options best fit your needs.


After this appointment and once your order is placed, it takes approximately 10 to 21 days for your products to be created, prepared, and delivered. By booking your session in advance, you allow for this production time, ensuring that your finished products are ready in a timely manner.


In summary, booking in advance not only secures your preferred session date but also allows for a smoother and more relaxed experience overall. It gives you the time needed to prepare for your session, enjoy the process of viewing & selecting your favorite images & products, and be stunned by how gorgeous you feel and how beautiful your final products turned out.


At Harpsy Boudoir, we pour into our clients, prioritizing personalized attention and ensuring that every session is a cherished experience—we believe in taking the time to savor each moment and never rushing the journey to capturing your unique beauty.


FAQ

What is Boudoir Photography?

Boudoir photography is an intimate photography experience crafted to celebrate your unique beauty, confidence, and sensuality. We specialize in capturing empowering images of individuals & couples, often in lingerie or other alluring attire, within our private and professional studio space. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and supportive environment where you can express yourself freely and feel sexy and empowered. Whether you're seeking a personal keepsake, building your self-confidence, or booking to provide a special gift for a partner, we are dedicated to creating stunning images that reflect your individual appeal and personality.

How should I prepare for my Boudoir Session?

After you book we will guide you through the process, leaving no detail undiscussed. We will send you an in-depth questionnaire to determine your goals and discover more about you personally: likes, dislikes, worries, concerns, etc. As we draw closer to your session date we will help prepare you with links to our custom Boudoir Prep Guide, along with helpful tips and tricks to ensure you get the most out of your session experience.

Do I need to have modeling experience?

Not at all! Every client is unique and no one boudoir session is the same. What works for one might not work for another. Each pose is designed for YOUR body and personality. We will guide you through posing to ensure you're at your most appealing.

How long does a typical boudoir session last?

All of our sessions are catered to our clients and do not have a time duration. However, we do endeavor to provide a realistic time expectation so clients can prepare accordingly. Typically, boudoir sessions can last anywhere from 2 hours, and go up to 4 hours. This includes hair and makeup, outfit changes, and moving through our ideal pose flow.

What should I plan to wear for my Boudoir Session?

Great question! This is a huge consideration we feel every client should take into account when booking. While we do offer select items from our carefully-curated Client Closet of lingerie, accessories, and style pieces, some clients are interested in a specific look and would prefer to provide their own outfits. During your consultation and later, on your questionnaire, you'll share these details so we can be fully prepared the day of your session. We endeavor to ensure all details are taken care of, from hair & makeup to stockings and jewelry. This way, every aspect of your photoshoot has been taken into account to provide a final and finished look.

Can I bring a friend or partner to my boudoir session?

We understand that having support during your boudoir session can make the experience even more enjoyable. However, this can also limit your ability to fully invest yourself into your boudoir session. While we typically recommend a one-on-one experience to ensure your comfort and focus, we welcome discussions about bringing a friend or partner along, if need be. However, please note that additional guests may impact the dynamic of the shoot and could result in a more limited space for privacy and impact your final gallery. If you're considering bringing someone with you, please let us know in advance so we can accommodate accordingly. Depending on the circumstances, there may be an additional fee associated with extra attendees. Ultimately, our priority is to ensure that you feel relaxed, confident, and at ease throughout your session. *If this is a couple's session we require only the subjects be part of your photoshoot. *If this is a friend/ally session where you are booked back to back, we allow the second client to arrive with the first.

What happens after my session?

Once your session has concluded we will select the best images from your photoshoot to custom-enhance. We hand-edit all of our images and do not apply a whole gallery preset (filter). This ensures each image is of the highest quality and is up to our standards. We also digitally prepare mock products to provide a realistic expectation of what your final pieces will look like. This includes wall art, album pages, and additional products we believe our clients will appreciate. Custom-enhancing and preparing your final gallery takes between 7 and 21 days. We'll have already scheduled your in-studio Reveal & Ordering Appointment at a convenient date & time 2 to 3 weeks after your session. Your in-studio Reveal & Ordering Appointment is where we will view your final gallery and mocked-up products on a large-screen TV. You will be able to apply your product credit during this appointment and decide which products you would like to walk away from your session with.

How far in advance should I book my boudoir session?

If you are planning on having your images and products ready by a certain date, I suggest you book at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to this date. This is for a few reasons: 1) We have an available date within your ideal time frame. The farther out you book, the more likely we'll have an opening for your session experience. 2) Take into account that from session to delivery of products, you should plan between 4 to 6 weeks. More about this topic can be found under our "What To Expect" tab/page.

What sets our boudoir photography apart from others?

We like to believe we stand out thanks to our personalized approach, professionalism, and overall empowering experience. We tailor each session to your unique beauty and comfort level, capturing stunning images that celebrate who you are with sex-appeal and confidence. We prioritize your goals and comfort while allowing you to push your own boundaries. We are also a full-service portrait studio offering high-quality products to showcase your images beautifully. You can expect an intimate and empowering experience that leaves you feeling sexy and exuding confidence. Our goal is to stand out, not fit in.

What if I feel nervous or self-conscious?

If you're feeling nervous or self-conscious, don't worry! It's completely normal to feel that way. We are dedicated to creating a comfortable and supportive environment where you can feel relaxed and confident. We'll work with you to ensure that your session is tailored to your comfort level and we'll guide you through poses that highlight your best features, leaving you feeling empowered and beautiful. While it seems like this would be an uncomfortable experience, your session mostly involves lots of fun & laughter and posing you'll feel the next day. ;)
