Are you ready to be empowered?
At Yours Truly Portraiture we empower women to gain confidence in who they are, loving themselves the way they are. This goes beyond your session as we support you in this journey of confidence & worth. Subscribe below and I'll send you a link to my guide 'Boudoir Session - 'What You Need to Know' to help you to prepare for your session with tips that you'll find will encourage you in your everyday!
The thought of a boudoir session can be scary. When talking to women about their session I get asked all kinds of questions. And rightfully so – what we do here is a FULL-SERVICE LUXE EXPERIENCE – my gals don’t just show up and take ‘a few pretty photos’. We do it all pampering and spoiling you along the way and I love making sure my beauties are prepared for it. So I compiled this list of my 12 most frequently asked questions to give you some insight on how to prepare for your session with me!
ABSOLUTELY. No questions asked. My clients are lawyers, teachers, doctors, and military members and I absolutely protect their identity and do not display their photos anywhere without their permission. I love when I am able to show off photos on my website or social media to reach other beauties like you, but all images displayed are always with written consent.
YES! I have an AMAZING team of professionals I work with and those styling services are optional/included in the session fee.
Having a professional pamper you not only makes sure you look and feel your best, but it also makes a difference in how your photos turn out. That being said I am ALL ABOUT the au natural experience as I believe YOU, just as you are, IS ENOUGH! This experience is FOR YOU – so if you prefer to come as you are or do your own styling I fully support you!
NOTE: As hair and makeup is optional if you choose not to partake in our professional pampering services the pricing does not change.
YES! We’ve got payment plans!
We hear often that our beauties don’t know how they’re going to narrow down their purchase selections because they love so many of their images. It’s a lovely problem to have and we do offer flexible payment plans to help you get absolutely everything you want with no interest for 12 months and affordable monthly payments.
Either way, I’m here to help you narrow down to your favorites and choose which images you can’t live without.
I would SO rather you spend your money on getting the products and images you LOVE, so to help I have amassed an EXTENSIVE in-house studio wardrobe for my clients to shop from that includes a wide variety of both outfits & accessories.
All the outfits in our wardrobe are items that I know photograph well, fit in all the right places, and we carry sizes to fit every body shape! Once you book, I will send you a session guide that goes in-depth on this information to include a gallery of what we carry and recommendations that will best suit you.
In our basic session, we photograph 3 outfits/looks, in the deluxe – up to 7!
ABSOLUTELY! I’m a full-time photographer and I’m committed to making you feel as comfortable and prepared as possible. I love meeting my beauties beforehand to let them tour the space and to talk details like outfits, poses they love, and styles for their makeup. If this is something you’d be interested in – let me know after you book and we will schedule an in-studio consultation.
First thing, we need to connect. Send me a message, and we’ll get you booked. Or you can click here to check out my online scheduler and choose a date that works best for you!
Then – we plan! Each of my beauties receives a personal outfit & styling consultation to choose pieces to flatter you and show off your personality. Don’t have outfits, or can’t find anything you love at the store? That’s ok! We have an extensive studio wardrobe you can ‘shop’ from & use for your session.
When you arrive the day of your session, be prepared to be pampered by one of our stylists then we’ll have a FABULOUS photoshoot, to include empowering words, relaxing music, wine and sweets. Before you leave, we’ll schedule your private photo reveal appointment for 1-2 weeks later (pending our schedules). Once I’ve edited your images with care, you’ll return to the studio for your reveal, and you’ll choose which products you want to order from your collection.
I got you boo! As a cultivator of soul work, I LOVE that I am able to encourage & empower my beauties in the necessary mental & emotional capacities to make this process an INCREDIBLE one and I do this through a complimentary confidence coaching call before the session (you’ll get an email 18 days before the session to make sure we can schedule this). During this call, we will talk through your hopes, fears, and insecurities, & empower you in your unique amazingness, so the day of the session you are ready to ROCK it!
After the session, I professionally edit & retouch your images. This includes basic color corrections, removing & minimizing blemishes (such as pimples, bruises, etc), slight smoothing, and adjustments to the images to match my artistic style.
Having been a boudoir photographer, for 7 years I pride myself on knowing the best positions and angles to flatter those areas you love and minimize or hide the ones you don’t – often we don’t need photoshop at all! That being said, I want you to be proud of these images and I edit in such a way to make you look your very best natural you.
After the session, we will schedule a private photo reveal appointment for you to see all your gorgeous images. This will take place at the studio 1-2 weeks after the session.
During this appointment you will view a short but jaw-dropping slideshow of your images, then we will work together to narrow these down to the favorites you want to purchase. Next, I’ll walk you through our different products, allowing you to see and touch samples, and then we will review pricing and place your order.
PRODUCT DELIVERY: Digital images can be ready SAME DAY once payment is received. Prints are usually ready in 2-3 days & albums take between 3-6 weeks to arrive.
NOTE: We DO NOT offer online viewing of images. No products will be delivered until payment is received in FULL.
Sure do! Our studio prides itself on our gorgeous printed high-end keepsakes like wall art and albums but we sell digital images as well! With the purchase of any print, album or wall art the corresponding digital is included so we definitely encourage you to get both! That being said – if you have your own special plans for how to print your images and you choose to solely buy digital images you can go home the SAME day as your in-person reveal and ordering appointment with a gorgeous custom USB drive of your fully edited high-resolution images and print release.
We are located in Chesapeake, VA near the Greenbrier area & just five minutes from the mall! Our studio is a corner unit with lots of gorgeous window light and LOTS of privacy.
