About Your Boudoir Session

HOW IT ALL WORKS...

We do book up very quickly! Please DON'T WAIT to book your session! It's never too early to get on our schedule.  Set your shoot date at least 4 weeks prior to when you need your the finished product in-hand. That said, sometimes we can make things happen pretty fast - so a faster turnaround time could be possible!

BOOKING:

A signed contract and a non-refundable retainer payment is required to secure your session. Your session date is NOT reserved or confirmed until I receive your signed contract AND retainer payment in full. More on this below!

WHAT TO BRING:

You'll have time for THREE different outfits during a standard one-hour boudoir session. Only bring outfits that you absolutely love!  Boudoir photography is only as revealing as you choose to be - there is never any pressure to shoot in anything but what you are comfortable in and feel most beautiful wearing!

RESOURCES:

I've created a huge set of resources to prepare you and ease your pre-shoot jitters! Once your booking is confirmed you'll be sent information with ideas for what to bring, how to prepare, and tips & tricks to make the most of your session!

POSING:

When your shoot begins, don’t worry about knowing what to do or how to move, that's my job! I'll coach you and demonstrate poses for you, whatever flatters your body and style. If you'd like to get a little practice in advance, the Client's Only Access that you receive after booking includes posing tips and ideas for you to look over before your session. 

PRODUCTS & IMAGES: 

Products and images are all purchased separately from your session fee.  After your session I will contact you to schedule your online reveal. You will receive 24 hour access to a password-protected online proofing gallery. This is when you select the images/products that you love and would like to order!

- FINANCING AVAILABLE -

I offer financing through Paypal Credit to support those that are budget-conscious. Financing is also a good option if wish to keep your purchase a secret and pay smaller amounts over time.  

Paypal Credit allows you have an extended payment plan (interest free for the first 6 months) and to pay for your products and receive your products asap! I have had clients use it with huge success!


Payment Plans

PURCHASE THE PRODUCTS YOU LOVE

When you book a session at Boudoir by Marie, you not only enjoy an experience that will help you reconnect with yourself as a woman, but you also have the opportunity to invest in preserving the memories of that experience in a luxurious way.

I know just like everyone else that pricing and budget come into play when clients are deciding on what to buy. But I also know that making payments on an INTEREST FREE plan is a great way to get what you want, without any extra fees! Which is why I offer some great options for you.

 

OPTION 1: PAYPAL CREDIT

If you're interested in a payment plan to pay off your products, first you need to apply for paypal credit. They offer no interest/no payments for 6 months, and you get to pick up your products in about 4 weeks! Are you ready to invest in yourself? See if you qualify below...it only take a few seconds!


OPTION 2: BOUDOIR BY MARIE LAYAWAY

If you are not approved for PayPal Credit, you can still do an automatic payment plan through me! C'mon girl. I'm not gonna leave you hangin'!

Here's the lowdown:

  • There is a minimum of $250 deposit on the day of your reveal session. The more you put down, the less your monthly payments will be.
  • I offer payment plans starting at $250 a month (also available in biweekly payments). This is an automatic payment system, which requires a primary and backup credit/debit card to be kept on file, with a signed contract, and payments are automatically charged on a recurring schedule.

Please note: Products are only ordered once your payment plan is paid in full.


 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will you keep my images private?
I take your privacy very seriously. All images shown by Boudoir by Marie are posted with permission. I will always keep your images private unless you give me permission to show them.

Who will be at my session?
Boudoir by Marie is a female-only experience. Myself and female beautician are the only people present during your shoot. Creating a comfortable atmosphere is very important to me so I can create the most beautiful images for you!

I have cellulite/stretch marks/acne. Can you get rid of that?
Yes! I will lightly retouch your proofing images, removing blemishes and adjusting lighting. Once you have chosen your final images, I will fine tune the editing, smoothing skin, removing stray hairs, brightening up shadows and other artistic edits. Removal of acne, acne scarring, stretch marks, and cellulite is part of the retouching process. I do my best to only enhance your natural beauty and not change it through Photoshop.  If there is something you feel self-conscious about, we can use poses and lighting to emphasize your best features instead!

NOTE: Fake/Spray tan patchiness or "orange"ness will NOT be edited out, please do not spray tan before your session!

I‘m older/curvier than some of the girls on your website, can I still book a session?
Of course! I have photographed women 19-61 years old and sized 0-26+. Not everyone is comfortable with their photos being shared publicly so I can’t always show a lot of examples. I will create images to flatter YOU and show your most beautiful self no matter your age, shape or size!

Do you provide the outfits?
I do not provide outfits, shoes, or props. I want you to bring whatever you feel most beautiful in and that showcase your own personality and interests! 

Can I bring a friend to my shoot?
If you'd like to bring a fun and supportive female friend to your session with you for encouragement, you're more than welcome to! Limit is ONE adult female guest only.  Please notify me in advance that you will be bringing a female friend, surprise guests will be asked to leave. 

Will my photos be published?
I only post client's images publicly with their express permission. All images shown on the Boudoir by Marie website or social media pages are posted with permission.

Where do the shoots take place?
Boudoir sessions take place at my residential Studio on Daniel Island in Charleston, SC.  It has gorgeous, natural lighting and understated glamorous decor - white sheets, soft throws and pillows, whitewashed brick and wood floors. Exact address information is provided to you the week of your shoot, along with last minute tips to keep in mind before your session! 

Outdoor shoots can also be arranged, whether you’re envisioning a secluded beach at sunset or a lush forest clearing. (Any location related fees are to be paid by client, an additional travel fee may be incurred as well.) Just remember, while outdoor shoots yield stunning results, Mother Nature loves to keep us on our toes. Come prepared with plenty of water, an umbrella, natural bug repellent and a knack for rolling with the weather.
