NINE 23 BOUDOIR WELCOME GUIDE

HELLO BEAUTIFUL

My name is Ashley. I'm the owner and photographer behind Nine 23. I'm a chunky fab, sassy momma of two little girls. I enjoy long walks on the beach, all-I-can-eat sushi, and sweet sun tea. As you can see, I also walk the walk, and book a boudoir session for myself, every year, even though I'm the awkwardest (is that a word?) person, and body shape in the world... a rectangle pear hybrid.

p.s. I'm also helpless with makeup, so please don't expect me to look this fierce when we meet. <3

F.A.Q.S

  1. Where will my session take place? Every session will take place in the Nine 23 Studio in downtown Indianapolis. Our address is 1055 N Senate Ave Suite D215. Don't worry, we aren't going to make you meet us in a hotel. ;)
  2. I'm not a model, will I look like the girls on your website? Absolutely! None of the ladies on our website are models either. They're all everyday, sassy women, just like you.
  3. Can I bring my significant other, or friend for support? While we do not allow significant others in the studio on session day, you are more than welcome to bring a friend. Over the years, we found having your honey in the studio, can add to your nerves and make it hard to relax and pose the way we need you to. While they look amazing, a lot of the poses feel silly, so having your SO there while you feel vulnerable and awkward can sometimes stop you from committing fully to a certain pose or facial expression.
  4. Do you offers couples boudoir? Sorry to say, I do not. I did in years past, but I've found my passion was working with women, one-on-one, to really reclaim their sexy! I do have a few recommendations if you're interested though. ;)
  5. Do I HAVE TO be nude? No. Your level of nudity is solely up to you. I will say though, once we've been shooting for a minute, inhibitions quickly go out the door in an all girl, safe environment, and you may change your mind on this. It doesn't matter your size, your body is beautiful, and I fully encourage everyone to at least consider it.
  6. Will you put my pictures on social media? This is also a decision that is solely up to you. After your reveal I will send you a model release where you can choose to allow us to share all, some, or none of your images. A lot of our clients want us to share, because it's liberating and freeing. In the event that you do allow us to share images, we never tag you or use your name or personal details, unless you specifically request otherwise.
  7. How much is this going to cost me? This is the big question, right? To be honest, it really depends on the products and/or collection you purchase at your reveal. I will say our average investment with session retainer and products is between $1680-2300.

THE PROCESS

Pick your session date:

Sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am, or Saturdays at 1:30pm. When you inquire, I will give you a list of these available dates, for you to choose from.

Book your Session

Once you choose your session date, I will send you a link to both pay your retainer, and fill out your session agreement, to secure your date and time.

Schedule your pre-session Consult

Now the fun begins!! We'll schedule your pre-session consultations for as close to 2 weeks prior to your session as we can get. This allows you plenty of time to prep, plan, and shop if you want to.

Session Day

On session day you will arrive at the studio with your face and hair free of any products, so Heather can do her thing! Plan to be at the studio for 3-3.5 hours for hair + makeup, changing, and shoot time. It seems like a lot, but trust me, it flies right by.

Reveal + Ordering

Two weeks after your session, we'll get back together in the studio to see all of your retouched images, and order your products. I am here to help make this a smooth and fun process, so I will never push an image or album that I know you don't want. I will help point out differences in images that you might be having a hard time choosing between, give my advice on album cover options, and/or suggest a product that would be best to display your images in the way that's practical for your life.

PRODUCT ARRIVAL

It's like Christmas all over again!! 2-3 weeks after your reveal, your products should arrive to you, packaged and pretty...and ready to show off!

PRODUCTS

I offer a variety of products from high end albums, glass image boxes filled with matted prints, to wall art and digital file collections. It's up to you, how to display your images.
