Q: What’s the shoot like?
A: You get a 45-minute session at our studio, and it will include about 30 minutes of actual shooting time with your photographer. This is just ONE set, with ONE outfit. No outfit changes, sorry, no exceptions. *NOTE: we will schedule you for a specific date and time (we are an appointment-only studio). Once you have reserved your date and time, you are locked in! 🙂 We have a 48 business hour (Monday-Friday) cancellation policy, and if you do not show up to your photo shoot, or if you cancel your session within 48 BUSINESS hours before the day of your shoot, we will be able to reschedule you, but we will need to apply a REBOOKING FEE of $50. Thank you for understanding.

Q: What about hair and makeup?
A: Hair and make up is not included in this deal. You must arrive camera-ready. You will not have time to do your hair and makeup here at the studio, because once you arrive, you’ll have your styling – planning meeting/quick consultation with your photographer, and then we will start shooting almost immediately after that.

We have make up and hair stylists on staff, let us know  if you want this extra service. The more popular looks are Glamour and Pin-Up, please consider your outfit when deciding on what look to choose. In a nutshell Pinups are like vintage sexy and Glamour is modern sexy a la Victoria Secret models.

For your hair, don’t feel the need to do anything too extravagant; sometimes hair looks best when it’s just straightened or curled in hot rollers. A good way to get good volume in your hair is to arrive with your hair still in the rollers! Wash and blow dry your hair the night before it helps when you come in when your hair is frizz-less.

Q: What do you recommend w/ hair & makeup?
A: We HIGHLY recommend getting professional makeup done before your shoot! Here are a few recommendations for you:
Angela Allonzi
Beautymark Makeovers
MAC makeup counter

Q: So then… what does “styling” mean for me?
A: We LOVE styling the look of your shoot! This means that we will help style your outfits for your photo shoot. Your photographer will help you choose your outfit, and we’ll help you add accessories and fun shoes. Basically it’s us helping you get totally comfortable and glammed up with your outfit so that you’re ready to rock your shoot! 🙂

Q: What if I want to add another set and outfit?
A: You can add one more set/outfit for $175. (This is our regular pricing for one set/outfit). We highly recommend adding an extra set, because it will give you SO much more variety in your images. (Plus, you’re going to LOVE your boudoir experience… just one set isn’t going to be enough!) 🙂 Please mention this to our staff while you are booking your shoot, and we will let you know if we have enough time in our schedule to accommodate adding another set and outfit for you. Additional pricing will apply (please call us for more details on pricing for adding a shoot).

Upgrading to our packages are also a very good and value wise option, please see our regular packages HERE.

Q: Do I need to bring my own outfit?
A: Yes, we recommend that you do bring your own outfit to the studio. Something you feel comfortable in. At the very minimum you must bring a bra and panty set (we suggest black). Please bring a robe if you can.

Q: Do you do ‘nude’ photos?
A: Only tasteful ones per clients requests, we reserve the right to refuse if we feel they are not going to come out classy.

Q: How sexy do I need to go?
A: This is completely up to you! You can go super-sexy, with lingerie (a la Maxim magazine), or bring in one of your hubby’s white shirts, or of course you can always go a little more conservative – even a sexy dress could look amazing!

Q: Do you do Pin-Up style photos?
A: Yes we do but we suggest you go the service of a professional make-up artist to get a Pin-Up look for your hair and make-up. We have a team of professional artists available, let us know when you book your shoot if you would be needing them.

Q: Can I do my shoot on-location?
A: The groupon deal is for a photo shoot at our studio. We do have a few outdoor locations available, however, this will be at an additional location fee.

Q: Do you airbrush and retouch the photos?
A: Yes. We will airbrush and retouch all of the images for your order. Click photo below to see sample of the level of retouching we do.

Before and After Retouching Boudoir Photo

Q: What if I want to purchase something additional, like a boudoir album or calendar?
A: You are more than welcome to make an additional purchase after your shoot. We have a large variety of different products for you to purchase a la carte, after your session. You are not required to purchase anything additional. *NOTE: if you decide to purchase an album, certain products take longer to produce – up to 4 weeks. We can fill you in on those specific turn-around times when you place your order here in the studio.

Q: When do I get to see (and choose) my images?
A: Although it’s not guaranteed, our goal is in one week where we will send your online gallery and you would choose your selection from here.

Q: I feel a little nervous and I don’t know how to be ‘sexy’ in front of a camera.
A: That is COMPLETELY normal! 🙂 our photographers have extensive experience in lighting, posing and connecting well with clients, you will be strutting with confidence in no time.

Q: Can I bring a friend to my shoot?
A: *NOTE: If your friend ALSO purchased the Boudoir Creatives Groupon deal, you can chat with us and see if we have enough availability for you to both have your shoots on the same day. In general, however, only one boudoir client is allowed in the shooting area at a time. So if your friend did not book a shoot with us, then NO, he or she may NOT come to your shooting with you but can wait at our lobby. If you feel more comfortable with a girlfriend coming along, you are more than welcome to bring her, but she cannot be in the studio while we are shooting; she will need to wait until after your shoot is done.

Q: Where does this shoot take place?
A: At our studio in Mississauga – Unit #33 – 5004 Timberlea Blvd. Mississauga, ON L4W 2S6
