To book your Boudoir shoot with Boudoir by Sara Lynn, we do require a $295/$195 (depending what session you choose) Non- refundable session fee. This fee will cover our prep, booking your professional hair/makeup artist, studio session, time photographing, time retouching etc.
To get a better understanding of our a la carte product pricing, the collection packages we offer, and WHY we keep images separate from our session fees, keep on scrolling and find out all the details!!
Our session and product collections are separate! I do this because I want this session to be COMPLETELY tailored. Everyone's budgets are different, and it's incredibly important to me that you CHOOSE YOUR PHOTOS YOURSELVES. By setting my pricing up this way, it allows you to ONLY pay for what you absolutely love!
A la Carte starts at $400 & Collection Packages starting at $695; most clients invest $900 & up on their custom boudoir Art, payment plans are available if needed
Each Session Experience includes the following:
Online consultation with Sara,
1hour + (depending on package you choose) of fun and shooting
professional hair + makeup with luscious lashes (Luxury session)
with 2-6 outfit changes
access to our client closet and jewelry bar
Inspiration board to help with the styling of your shoot
Personal Same day Image Ordering Appointment Option
Professional retouching of ordered images
Mimosa & wine bar access
OUR SESSION CREATION FEE ACTS AS A NON-REFUNDABLE RETAINER TO RESERVE YOUR DATE AND TIME IN THE STUDIO & ALSO TO BOOK OUR MAKEUP ARTIST
I believe every woman should have the boudoir experience! I offer interest-free payment plans, and accept all major credit cards as well as Paypal Credit so that you don't have to tell yourself no.This option allows you buy your collection package after your shoot, but break up the payments into monthly payments that makes sense for your budget! 1st payment of the product cost is due at the time of order, and products are not ordered until your package is paid for in full.
Payment Plans available for Collection Two & Three (2 months -3months)
Please look over my package pricing, and then my A la carte pricing, our most popular products are our Collection packages and our Lux Albums!
What's Your Style?
We KNOW this is personal. That's why we work hard to make sure that you know, and we know exactly what you're looking for in your photos!
CLASSIC AND LOVELY: The 'Classic & Lovely' style is for our ladies that want to feel their beauty, but prefer to keep a more modest approach. This may mean that we shoot your session wearing less revealing clothing or lingerie and focus on poses that will highlight all of your magnificent features, your smile, your eyes and less on your wonderful lady lumps and bumps. It is innocent, classy and gorgeous!
PLAYFUL: This style takes things up a notch--but not too much. It is the equivalent of the playful girl next door. We will push the envelope a bit with sexier lingerie, but still keep things on a more mild level with playful and sweet expressions, while still getting shots of your gorgeous body.
SEXY: This style allows for more provocation. We want to heat things up, we'll want you to bring your sexiest pieces of lingerie, and we'll do a mix of the sweet, playful expressions and digging into your inner goddess for seductive looks, glances, and pushing the feelings of empowered sexiness. You will be asked to put your hands on your body to grab, pull, push and create images sure to make jaws drop!
THE SEDUCTRESS: This style is going to push you! The session will involve less time spent looking into the camera with sweet expressions, and more time unleashing your inner seductress. We will push boundaries (while remaining respectful) by offering an almost voyeuristic approach to the sexiness within. Your shots will focus with you looking at your own body, touching yourself, erotic expressions and aiming for a VERY sexy end result.
Pinterest is our friend
Many photographers loathe when a client comes to them with photos they found on Pinterest, because they are concerned that they will not be able to meet the expectations that the photos relay. But here at Sara Lynn Studio, we LOVE Pinterest! Please feel free to send us ideas that you have, poses you love, and if anything is a must have--let us know! We want you to be thrilled with the experience, and gaining a sure-fire understanding of what you love will allow us to do that most effectively!
Rock the Session
Once you arrive to the studio, you'll be welcomed with wine and yummy goodies! Then you'll have your hair and make-up professionally styled if you pick session one with hair = makeup services, and our artist is ready to create the perfect look you're going for! We have sets/props that will create a variety of looks within your photo shoot,and we'll help you with your outfit selection once you book, we use flattering lighting/retouching, and we will pose you down to your fingertips! While you are getting glammed I will map out your session, then it's all about you! Time to shoot!As you can see, there's nothing to worry about, we've got you covered!
Let's go over all the things that YOU can do to prepare for your session, so it turns out to be the ultimate pampering!
Sessions are best booked four to six weeks in advance, this allows time for us to collaborate; but if you need to book sooner, no worries! I will create a mood board for your session, & send you my lingerie guide that explains all the gorgeous ways to dress up for your day of pampering. We can exchange texts, pins, emails, you name it; I just want to know what your dream shoot looks like. If you're local, we can even go shopping together!
HAIR & MAKEUP
We have an amazing artists on our team .. who we refer all clients too & will come to the studio to Glam you up.Having your makeup + hair professionally done is a big part of having a amazing session! Here at Sara Lynn Studios we transform girls-next-door, maxed-out mamas, and pressured professionals into sultry sirens. Michelle & Kristine have worked in the industry for years and pride themselves in not only recreating any look you could wish for, but also paying extreme attention to proper technique and sanitation. They know what I like and they make you feel & love your look for your custom session!
PLEASE NO EYELASH EXTENSIONS..UNDER LIGHT LOOKS GREY AND LIKE SPIDER LEGS
hair and makeup will be specifically designed to accentuate your beauty. Professional Hair and Makeup with beautiful luxurious lashes .Especially for boudoir, will be very different than what you might wear on a normal day but still look like your beautiful self and is highly recommended for this type of shoots ! You'll be full glam baby & be pampered!
The first thing I usually hear from everyone is, "I have no idea how to pose, my images won't look good." Luckily for you, that's my job! I obsess over being able to provide my clients with step by step instructions on posing. So don't worry about looking silly or not sexy enough. I will literally get down on all fours and show you how to execute the pose we want. I pay extreme attention to your eyes, fingers and toes, and even breathing to make sure that you won't be able to stop staring at your images.
Every woman is Unique and Beautiful. Let us show you what the world sees. You are a beautiful, strong, and independent woman. You were made for this and you deserve it.
What Do I Wear?
This is probably my most frequently asked question: What do I bring? Many of our ladies choose to look in their own closets and lingerie drawers to find the amazing pieces they bring to their sessions with Sara. The most important thing I can tell you is that if you FEEL beautiful in it, you will convey that beauty to the camera. Lots of our ladies also decide to buy a little something special for their session, and want to know, what is the most flattering lingerie for my body?
Bring atleast 2-3 items that know that fit.. I do have client wardrobe but everyone is different in size and dont want you to stress out..come prepared..bring anything and everything u think would be good and we can narrow down. More the better so we can pick and choose!!
TRY to Order items or go shopping ahead of time so you are not stressing last minute!
THE LITTLE BLACK SOMETHING
I literally have never seen a woman NOT look amazing in black. So first and foremost, know that black is everyone's best friend. It is slimming, sexy, provocative and gorgeous! If you are concerned about what color to buy, go with what feels AMAZING first, but if you're ever in doubt: go black!
THAT BODY SUIT, THOUGH
I have never met a body suit I didn't love. They seem simple or casual, but pair a body suit with leggings, tights, heels, or a good ol' arched back, and VA VA VOOM. Uhhhhmazing! Body suits can be found in so many different styles! Whether it's lacy lingerie, or something in cotton or wool that you picked up from a trendy store (totally not intended to be worn without jeans), it's still going to look HOT.
CURVES IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES
Lots of ladies express to me that they are concerned about their size, or that their problem areas are their tummies. First off, please know that extra ell bees does not mean that you are not 100% capable of SLAYING. Our bodies are our gifts, whether they be a size 2 or a size 20. If you want to shop for something that you know you'll look lovely in, I would suggest corsets, bodysuits (can't go wrong! I'm telling' ya!) and other shape wear. This will allow you to tuck and pinch into a gorgeous hourglass shape while still allowing for booty SHAZAAM.
CUT THOSE PANTIES
No. Don't really cut them. BUT, let's talk bout the cut of the panties you choose to wear. When it comes to what is most flattering for booties, I will always tell you less skin is MORE. I know this sounds counterintuitive, but it's totally the case. I always prefer panties that have booty coverage (maybe not FULL booty coverage--but those French cuts SLAY me!) over those with less. That said, thongs can be TOTALLY sexy (especially under sheer nylons), but I would definitely stay away from G-strings, which don't allow for much shape and leave a little too little to the imagination!
While I LOVE baby doll dress lingerie for practical purposes, they doesn't always photograph well! This is mostly because I'll contort you in some crazy shapes and positions and the baby doll lingerie hangs, making your body appear differently than it actually is. If you have something you love, don't panic! Bring it! We'll just have to pose you to ensure that the garment looks as beautifully as you feel wearing it!
If you're not feeling lingerie, but are unsure what to wear consider some of these options in addition to or instead of lingerie: Mens Shirts, T shirt and booty shorts, Robes, Slinky Dresses, jersey etc.
Yes! Bring accessories if you feel good in them! Jewelry, bedroom toys (handcuffs, crops, etc) can be fun props! Leg warmers, knee high socks, garter belts, thigh-highs and other tights and nylons, fishnets and more all play a role in these set ups and can add to the ultimate sex appeal!
Feel free to bring whatever you'd like, and we'll give you our expert opinions on whether something works or doesn't! If you need more guidance, you can always give us a call or send us an email to ask our opinion! We're here to help!
Prepping for you session begins 7-10 days before you show up at my door! Follow these steps to insure your appearance is at it's highest level!
7-10 days before your shoot:
Increase you water intake! Try to drink extra water all the way leading up to your shoot, it is AMAZING for your skin and will allow you to shine bright like a diamond! :)
Lower your salt intake & avoid alcohol if you're concerned about water weight!
Stay out of the sun, or wear lots of sunscreen (Please DO NOT spray tan!if u do make sure its not orangy.. It does not translate well on camera!)
*Remember eyelash extensions are NOT recommended since they look grey under light and look good for shoot*
5 days before your shoot:
If you wax, do so ASAP to avoid any bumpiness or redness.
Make sure your eyebrows are groomed & hair touched up
Shape and buff your nails, or get a manicure. (less then $5 at a drug store to buy a file and buffer)
Keep drinking plenty of water, this does amazing things to your skin!
Try on your outfits and lingerie to make sure they fit properly; remove all tags and labels.
Steam or iron your ensembles and hang them properly so they keep their shape as you travel to the studio.
Begin to use lotion regularly or more frequently
stretch..yoga or just simply stretch. Lots of poses that are awkward but so worth it after
On the Day of the shoot:
Wear loose fitting clothing that won't leave imprints on your body.
Come with hair clean (wash hair night before) & no makeup on
Bring the stuff you want to wear, I'll have some stuff with me as well!
Bring at least 1 set of white & black undies, can go with anything bra and undies.
Remember jewelry & accessories
Show up PROMPTLY at your shoot time (or up to 10 minutes early)
Get ready for fun!!!
What happens when it's all over?
Sadly all good things come to end! Don't worry though, we will see each other Same day or 1 weeks after your session for your big gallery reveal or same day reveal depending on time! This is usually the most emotional and empowering part of your experience, so make sure you've got some waterproof mascara on!
Typical Turn around time after images are picked for retouching is 3-4 weeks turn around for edit/ retouching and luxury product delivery depending on what package and size of order.
