(let's get the boring stuff out of the way first!)

Our boudoir sessions are priced at $450 and are all-inclusive. This cost includes your online consultation, your portrait session which typically runs about 1.5-2hours long, and no less than 20 edited photos delivered by download from an online, password-protected gallery with a full print release. Prints and products are optional, and can be purchased directly through your online gallery upon receiving it. We no longer include hair & makeup with our boudoir sessions as we want to push for a more natural look, but you are welcome to have it done on your own time, ask us for a referral if you need one!


First of all, I want to thank you for trusting me to photograph you in this most intimate setting. It means a lot that you have put your faith in me and I promise to do my best to leave you feeling absolutely incredible about yourself, and 100% respected. Although you may be feeling excited & nervous (especially if this is your first Boudoir experience) I promise it isn't as scary as you think! The best results always come from good preparation.

Your shoot will be styled specifically for you based the information you provide in the questionnaire I have sent and the outfits that you have chosen to wear for your shoot.So make sure you give yourself some time ahead of the shoot, to make a list of the things that you will need to bring, book, collect, purchase or do. Below are some tips/suggestions that will help!

Preparing for your shoot...

So you've just booked a boudoir session with Fox and Bird Photography - now what? Well first, we need to decide whether you would like your portrait session to be shot outdoors, in the comfort of your own home, or here in our Boudoir Suite at Fox and Bird Photography. Here is a little info about each and some portrait examples.

Out in nature? Home in bed? In a sexy boudoir suite? Decisions, decisions.


Outdoor boudoir photography adds another element to your portraits - nature. These locations are public, but (mostly) private. We will discuss location ideas, and any concepts you might have together to choose the most ideal spot for you, and can do some hiking and hit a few different spots along the way! During our outdoor sessions, for an additional fee, we can also incorporate smoke bomb grenades for a really cool look (see the waterfall portrait above!) .


Of course, one of the most obvious choices for a boudoir session is in the comfort of your own bedroom - it is where you go to relax and unwind after a long day, where you curl up under the covers with a good book or a kiss goodnight, where you feel the most comfortable and at ease - because it's your space, filled with your things, and is a reflection of yourself. I love in-home boudoir sessions because people are already immediately more comfortable when they're at home in their own space.

These were taken at the Fernweh workshop in Salmon Arm, and show the progression of a typical indoor couple's boudoir session, from comfortable and loved up, to more steamy and sultry. It is all based on your personal comfort levels with intimacy, and always makes for such beautiful memories!


If you are wishing to shoot in our boudoir suite here at Fox and Bird Photography, we are located in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Our suite is beautifully decorated in a dark floral theme and jam packed with sexy spots to shoot.

Note that all decor in the suite is subject to change at any time.

New to the studio suite, a rotating stripper pole and HUGE neon GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS light. It's a tight space in here - eventually we plan on moving this all down to the basement pub my husband wants to build - but for now, it's still a whole hell of a lot of fun spinning around the pole in the room!

The pole/lights are available for any of our full boudoir sessions photographed in the room.

This last shot is probably my favourite from the set - because my man is in it with me <3

Couple's Boudoir Sessions

Couple's Boudoir sessions bring the intimacy to a whole other level. For no extra charge bring your partner along for some intimate portraits of the two of you together.

Scroll to view a few of our favourite shots from some recent sessions.

Couple's Boudoir brings the intimacy to a whole other level. Captured in my favourite little spot in the forest.

Another from the Heart and The Heat Workshop - such an incredible time!

The studio bedroom suite is tiny, but it works too for couple's sessions <3

You could even shoot with a friend, these two fulfilled a fantasy for one of their partner's - if you are comfortable sharing a session with your friend you can be photographed separately as individuals, and/or together at no extra cost. Split the cost of the boudoir session ($450) between the two of you and have some fun cheering one another on!


These are shots from my very first venture into male boudoir photography. I am slowly adding male boudoir photography as an option, accepting male clients that I have worked with previously on some other level, whether during a family or couple's photography session. I do usually bring an assistant along on these sessions.

One of our most commonly asked questions is "Where can I buy lingerie?" And so, I have compiled a list of some absolutely incredible online stops to purchase lingerie from traditional to high end luxury lingerie stores. Remember to choose a variety of pieces, and always remember that your comfort is key! Make certain to check shipping/delivery times prior to purchase to ensure your items will arrive prior to your session date.

This list is available in our full Client Guide for booked Clients!
