Read though the info here, it should help narrow down your questions for your phone consult. Don't worry, we will chat about all the details. It is so much easier to go over the process and answer any questions you might have on the phone.
This lets me get to know you better and customize your session to suit you and your personality. This is your time to shine, Babe. We will plan a killer session and show you just how beautiful you are or much of a badass you can be!
Remember to Give yourself time. During your consult, we will schedule the date for your session. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time if you are on a strict deadline as we usually book a few months in advance and process itself takes approximately 6-8 weeks.
PARTY TIME. The Session:
The fun part! Your session takes place in our luxury boudoir studio in Innisfail. We offer a variety of set looks and it helps keep it secret just in case you can't kick someone out of the house without them knowing.
I love offering a FULL service experience. You get to come in, get your makeup done, get pampered, feel amazing, and then head home! You don't need to worry about a clean home, having clean sheets, no kids at home (this time is for you, and you alone), or decluttering or decor! You get to feel amazing and I worry about all the details!
Your session lasts around 1-2 hours, depending on which session package you choose (add 60-90 min for hair and makeup).
You can bring or show me as many outfits as you would like and we will go over them together at the beginning of your session and I will help you choose what would work best for our lighting at your body type. Your session will include 1-2 outfits or 2-3 outfits and implied/tasteful nudes. I recommend this number so that when we are choosing your images at your reveal and they are created as products, you are focusing on who is in the photos, not what you are wearing. The same goes for props. I don't typically shoot with them. When you break it down, a lot of times we are unknowingly hoping that we can hide behind these objects that we bring.
THAT MOMENT: The Reveal
This is the moment that we have been working for! Your reveal and ordering session takes place approximately 1-2 weeks after your session is complete.
Your reveal is held in studio and you can come as comfy as you wish (who doesn't like wine and pyjamas, or no pants, I don't judge). We keep all of our amazing samples to show you here and this helps keep the secret from that special someone if you are gifting your images. If you are long distance and a second travel back isn't an option, we can do a screen share reveal session or a next day reveal (we will talk about options for our out of town clients during your phone consult).
The best part is that you get to see your images for the first time in your personalized slide show that I create for your viewing! After we've seen how badass and incredible you look, we go through your images one by one and pick out your favourites. The bonus of this in person reveal is that I am able to show you the amazing products you get to choose from! You get to touch and feel so you don't have to try and imagine what they would be like.
In around 4-6 weeks following your reveal session (or your final payment if you are on an in house payment plan), you will get the call! Your products are in and ready to be picked up. YAY!
You will leave your reveal session feeling incredible and empowered as a woman!

A Few Prep Tips...
We will remind you of these things closer to your date, but here are a couple things we like to touch on throughout the process.
Hydrate. A week before your session, increase your water intake! We want soft, glowing skin and staying hydrated will definitely aid in that.
Nails. A detail often overlooked. Either treat yourself to a mani/pedi a 1-3 days before your session, or make sure you come in with clean trimmed nails. Try to avoid wild fashion colors that will conflict with your outfit choices or the neutral tones of the studio.
Hair. PROMISE us you won't hit up the hair salon and make a drastic change the day before your session. If you'd like a touch up or a cut and color, try to schedule this appointment a week before your session. That gives you plenty of time for corrective measure should the worst happen.
Waxing/Shaving. Use your best judgement on waxing based on the growth rate of your hair if this is something you intend on doing. Give yourself at least 24 hrs for your body to reduce any inflammation. Shaving can be done the morning of your session. Do what you can to avoid razor burn as major editing can add additional editing costs.
Packing. Pack your bag the night before. There might be enough nerves and jitters without running around doing last minute packing. We want to avoid forgetting something you really wanted to bring and if you are like me, you will need to locate items all over the house.
Sleep. Get plenty of sleep! Literally talking about beauty rest here. It will really do wonders for your mindset and that gorgeous face of yours!
And finally, if you opt for hair and makeup (highly recommended), we work with an amazing stylist and you won't be disappointed! Makeup for photos is a little different than the everyday, so if you are at all worried, leave it to us and treat yourself to the full experience!
PAYMENT PLANS AND OPTIONS
We love our flexible options for payment plans! Payment plans are fantastic for our clients who want to make a proprietary investment in their beauty and self esteem, but pricing may not be one swipe of a bank card for them. Below we illustrate ways we try to make this experience as accessible as possible for as many women as we can.
BOUDIE BANK ACCOUNT
Our Boudie Bank Account is a cute way of saying "pre-payment." Some of our ladies opt to do a pre-session payment plan so they can get their products faster after their reveal. It's super flexible so you can pay however much you want, whenever you want. The funds that you pay into the "account" are sitting there waiting for you to use as a credit at your reveal.
IN HOUSE PAYMENT PLAN
Our in-house payment plan is a very flexible solution for instalments for any purchase. Your order total can be broken into installments for up to 6 months (14 payments) from the date of your reveal. Your first payment is due at your reveal and the next consecutive payments are bi-weekly on Fridays. You can choose whether to EMT or auto charge your payments from a credit card; either way, a credit card is required to be kept on file. Products will be ready for pickup 4-6 weeks following the completion of the instalment agreement.
Our referral program is the easiest way to get some cash taken off your final order total at your reveal. Refer a friend and you'll both gain $50 in studio credit! Once your girlfriends' session fee is paid and they have made it onto our schedule, we will make a note of your credit in your client file. You may apply this to your upcoming order, or for your next boudie session with us!
No products or digital images included in session fees. All images are purchased separately at your reveal appointment.
