FAQ's

Here are 10 frequently asked questions about Boudoir AND MATERNITY sessions

Q1: WHAT IS A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT?

Q1: WHAT IS A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT?

A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT IS A TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE DESIGNED TO EMPOWER AND CELEBRATE WOMEN OF ALL AGES AND BODY TYPES. THROUGH EXPERT LIGHTING AND POSING TECHNIQUES, A PROFESSIONAL BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES YOUR BEAUTY IN THE MOST FLATTERING WAY POSSIBLE. THIS INTIMATE SESSION ALLOWS YOU TO EMBRACE YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE AND EMBARK ON A JOURNEY OF SELF-LOVE.

WHILE MANY CHOOSE TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED IN LINGERIE OR NUDE, IT'S NOT A REQUIREMENT. YOU HAVE THE FREEDOM TO STYLE YOURSELF IN A WAY THAT REFLECTS YOUR PERSONALITY AND HOW YOU WANT TO SEE YOURSELF. WHETHER YOU'RE LOOKING TO BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE, MARK A MILESTONE, OR SIMPLY TREAT YOURSELF, A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT IS A DEEPLY PERSONAL AND REWARDING EXPERIENCE.

Q2: I'M SO NERVOUS! WILL I BE OK?

Q2: I'M SO NERVOUS! WILL I BE OK?

FEELING NERVOUS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL WHEN STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE, ESPECIALLY FOR SOMETHING AS NEW AND EXCITING AS A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT. REST ASSURED, I'M HERE TO SUPPORT YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. YOUR COMFORT AND SAFE SPACE ARE MY TOP PRIORITIES, AND I'LL ENSURE YOU HAVE A RELAXED AND ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE.

AS WE START THE SESSION, ANY NERVES WILL NATURALLY FADE AWAY, AND WE'LL HAVE A FANTASTIC TIME CREATING BEAUTIFUL ART TOGETHER. DON'T LET YOUR NERVES HOLD YOU BACK FROM THIS EMPOWERING EXPERIENCE. YOU'VE ALREADY TAKEN THE FIRST STEP BY BEING HERE, AND I'M HERE TO CHEER YOU ON.

REMEMBER, THERE'S NO COMMITMENT WHEN YOU INQUIRE. IT'S A FEEL-GOOD FIRST STEP TOWARD EXPERIENCING YOUR OWN BOUDOIR SHOOT. YOU'VE GOT THIS, AND I'M HERE TO HELP YOU FEEL CONFIDENT AND EMPOWERED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS. 

Q3: DO YOU HAVE A LINGERIE CLOSET THAT I CAN USE FOR MY PHOTOSHOOT?

Q3: DO YOU HAVE A LINGERIE CLOSET THAT I CAN USE FOR MY PHOTOSHOOT?

AT FRENCH KISS BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY, WE PRIORITIZE YOUR COMFORT AND SELF-EXPRESSION, WHICH IS WHY WE DON'T OFFER A SHARED LINGERIE CLOSET FOR OUR CLIENTS. 

WITH THE ABUNDANCE OF OPTIONS OF STYLES AND COLORS AVAILABLE ONLINE AND AROUND NYC, YOU CAN SELECT GARMENTS THAT FIT PERFECTLY AND REFLECT YOUR UNIQUE STYLE. PLUS, HAVING YOUR OWN LINGERIE ENSURES HYGIENE AND ELIMINATES ANY CONCERNS ABOUT WEARING ITEMS PREVIOUSLY WORN BY OTHERS.

BEFORE YOUR PHOTOSHOOT, WE'LL HAVE A WARDROBE SESSION TO HELP YOU CHOOSE THE PERFECT OUTFITS AND ACCESSORIES. THIS PERSONALIZED APPROACH ENSURES THAT YOU FEEL PREPARED AND CONFIDENT ON THE DAY OF YOUR SESSION.

Q4: WHAT OUTFITS SHOULD I BRING TO MY BOUDOIR SESSION?  

Q4: WHAT OUTFITS SHOULD I BRING TO MY BOUDOIR SESSION?  

PLANNING YOUR BOUDOIR SESSION WARDROBE IS AN EXCITING PART OF THE EXPERIENCE! MANY CLIENTS OPT FOR LINGERIE, AND THE OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS. FROM ELEGANT LACE SETS TO PLAYFUL BODYSUITS, THERE'S SOMETHING FOR EVERY STYLE AND COMFORT LEVEL.

DURING YOUR CONSULTATION, WE'LL DISCUSS YOUR PREFERENCES AND VISION FOR THE SHOOT. WHETHER YOU PREFER A CLASSIC, ROMANTIC LOOK OR SOMETHING MORE DARING AND BOLD, I'M HERE TO HELP YOU FEEL CONFIDENT AND BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR CHOSEN OUTFITS.

SOME POPULAR LINGERIE BRANDS AMONG MY CLIENTS INCLUDE HONEY BIRDETTE, AGENT PROVCATEUR, AND LA PERLA.

HOWEVER, FEEL FREE TO BRING PIECES THAT REFLECT YOUR PERSONAL STYLE AND MAKE YOU FEEL AMAZING.

TO ENSURE YOU'RE FULLY PREPARED, WE'LL HAVE A WARDROBE SESSION PRIOR TO YOUR SHOOT. THIS ALLOWS US TO FINALIZE YOUR OUTFIT CHOICES AND ADDRESS ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS YOU MAY HAVE EVEN BEFORE YOU SET FOOT IN THE STUDIO.

Q5: I'M EXPECTING! WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY SESSION?

Q5: I'M EXPECTING! WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE MY NY MATERNITY SESSION?

CONGRATULATIONS ON THIS VERY SPECIAL TIME IN YOUR LIFE! I REMEMBER BOTH OF MY PREGNANCIES LIKE THEY WERE YESTERDAY. AT FRENCH KISS BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY, WE UNDERSTAND THE EXCITEMENT AND IMPORTANCE OF CAPTURING THE BEAUTY OF YOUR PREGNANCY. BASED ON OUR EXPERIENCE, WE RECOMMEND SCHEDULING YOUR MATERNITY SESSION BETWEEN 30-35 WEEKS OF PREGNANCY. THIS TIMING ALLOWS YOUR BABY BUMP TO BE BEAUTIFULLY PROMINENT WHILE ENSURING YOU'RE STILL FAIRLY COMFORTABLE AND ENERGIZED DURING THE SHOOT. IT'S ALSO A SAFE ENOUGH AMOUNT OF TIME AWAY FROM THE POSSIBILITY OF AN EARLY DELIVERY. BY BOOKING EARLY, YOU SECURE YOUR PREFERRED DATE AND AFTER YOUR SESSION YOU CAN CHERISH THE MEMORIES WITH STUNNING WALL ART FOR THE NURSERY OR A TIMELESS ALBUM. YOU CAN ALSO CHECK OUT OUR NEWBORN AND FAMILY WEBSITE AT EVERGREENSTUDIOSNY.COM WHERE YOU CAN CONTINUE TO CAPTURE YOUR BABY AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL GROWING FAMILY!

Q6: I'M NOT PHOTOGENIC. WILL MY PICTURES LOOK OK?

Q6: I'M NOT PHOTOGENIC. WILL MY PICTURES LOOK OK?

I WILL HAPPILY PROVE THAT MYTH WRONG. THE DEFINITION OF "PHOTOGENIC" IS LOOKING ATTRACTIVE IN PHOTOGRAPHS OR ON FILM. WHO HAS BEEN TAKING YOUR PICTURE THAT YOU FEEL THIS WAY? WHOEVER IT IS, THEY HAVEN'T BEEN DOING YOU JUSTICE!

Q7: WILL MY PICTURES GET RETOUCHED?

Q7: WILL MY PICTURES GET RETOUCHED?

WHEN IT COMES TO BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY, I BELIEVE RETOUCHING IS THERE TO HELP POLISH YOUR IMAGES, BUT NOT TO CHANGE WHO YOU ARE. A LOT IS TAKEN CARE OF DURING THE SHOOT WITH LIGHTING AND POSING SO WHATEVER IS LEFT IS MINIMAL AND RETOUCHED IN POST. WE WILL ALSO DISCUSS THIS IN DETAIL ONCE YOUR BOUDOIR SHOOT IS BOOKED.

Q8: DO YOU OFFER COUPLES' BOUDOIR SESSIONS?

Q8: DO YOU OFFER COUPLES' BOUDOIR SESSIONS?

IF YOU WOULD LIKE A FEW IMAGES WITH YOUR PARTNER, I HAVE A WAY TO INCORPORATE THEM INTO A PART OF YOUR SESSION, BUT MY FOCUS IS SESSIONS ARE ONE-ON-ONE INDIVIDUAL SHOOTS. 

Q9: Will I GET DIGITAL FILES OF MY IMAGES?

Q9: Will I GET DIGITAL FILES OF MY IMAGES?

ABSOLUTELY! ALL OF OUR PACKAGES INCLUDE A CORRESPONDING DIGITAL FILE FOR THE IMAGES THAT YOU SELECT. 

Q10: WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO PAY FOR MY BOUDOIR SESSION?

Q10: WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO PAY FOR MY BOUDOIR SESSION?

THE COST OF A BOUDOIR SHOOT WITH FRENCH KISS DEPENDS ON THE PACKAGE YOU SELECT. THERE IS AN $800 RETAINER REQUIRED TO BOOK YOUR SESSION, WHICH HOLDS YOUR SHOOT DATE, COVERS PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND MAKEUP SERVICES, YOUR STUDIO TIME AND GETS DEDUCTED FROM A COLLECTION OF YOUR CHOOSING. WHAT YOU ULTIMATELY SPEND REALLY DEPENDS ON THE COLLECTION AND PRODUCTS YOU DECIDE TO PURCHASE. PLEASE GET IN TOUCH TO GO OVER THE FULL COLLECTIONS MENU. PACKAGES START AT $2600 AND GO UP FROM THERE.

"Irina is gifted. She brings together a combination of a skilled eye, amazing customer service and passion for her craft with her ability to put her customers at ease (at a time that may not be all that comfortable for some!). She is a beautiful person and it comes through in her interactions as well as her work. I would highly recommend working with Irina."
