“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself” – Coco Chanel
Boudoir is French for “bedroom”. Our boudoir and glamour portrait photography will capture Sweet, Sexy, Sultry, Smokin’ HOT images that bring out the best in you. Our philosophy focuses on all of these things to showcase how you should feel.
How to schedule a Boudoir session?
The best thing to do is call (865) 368-1291 to set up a free, no obligation consultation to plan your SSSSH! Photography Boudoir Glamour session. The consultation will take around 30 minutes. During the consultation we will discuss in detail all of your thoughts and our ideas to help you meet your needs, wants and desires for an amazing experience. We will coordinate a date, time and place to schedule your photography session.
Once you decide you want to schedule a SSSSH Boudoir & Glamour Photography session, you will need to submit a non-refundable scheduling fee of $75 and sign a contract to schedule your desired date and time. Depending upon the session you select, the balance of your fee is due when you arrive for your session.
Where are you located? Do I have to go to a studio?
SSSSH! Boudoir & Glamour Photography is a private home-based business located in Fayetteville, Tennessee. We are available for sessions on location. Perhaps you’ll be more comfortable in your own home? Or, we can easily do an outdoor session, weather permitting. Are you looking for an intimate hotel setting? The sky is the limit when it comes to where your session could occur. On-location sessions may incur additional fees. We also are able to travel within South Central Tennessee and Northern Alabama if you prefer we come to you.
May I bring a friend?
We are absolutely fine with a friend coming with you! Do you have a BFF that’s good with hair and makeup? Bring her along! We’re fine with that.
What should I expect during my session?
It is very common for a guest to feel a little nervous about the session, but don’t worry, it’s completely normal. By the end of your session you will be thrilled with how much fun you had! Our studio is a private home and we utilize several areas for boudoir sessions including multiple sets in the different bedrooms and we can even use the master bath Jacuzzi if you like.
Our photographer, Ambler Brown is an award-winning professional photographer and PPA member, with one rule he never breaks. He absolutely always photographs with a another adult female present. Our male/female staff will be the only people present (besides your friend or the hair/makeup artist, if included) for your session.
When you first arrive, we will spend time chatting and getting to know you. Your session will start with hair and makeup if you’ve included it. Next we’ll move onto sorting through the wardrobe items you brought and picking out your favorite looks. We will consider all your items with the available sets and backgrounds to formulate a plan. Once we have the wardrobe lined up, we will move into the actual photography session. Depending on the number of wardrobe changes you have included in your package, the session could last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. Keep in mind hair and makeup will take time as well.
What should I bring to my Boudoir Session?
We will have available several silk wraps, hats, scarves and a few props (chairs, rose petals, pillows) that can be used for your session, but we encourage you to bring your own wardrobe and meaningful props. During your consultation we will spin ideas to get your thoughts flowing on different possibilities to make your session sexy and unique. We typically tell guests to bring an entire suitcase if they want to, that way we have lots of options! Here are a few ideas on popular wardrobe and props:
- “Booty ” jeans or pants your “significant other” goes gaga over!
- Leather jackets or tops that can open up to show some cleavage.
- Lingerie… all types. Bring what you feel the sexiest in!
- Boy shorts panties.
- Bridal veil
- Fishnet or thigh high stockings.
- Short skirts
- Sports, work related or personal interest wardrobe or props (military uniform, team jersey, fireman’s jacket, work shirt, tie, footballs, guns, guitars, snowboards, surfboards, helmets, roller-skates).
- Jewelry, stiletto heels, boots, gloves and hats are always fun accessories to add to your session (you wouldn’t believe how versatile a really long pearl necklace can be)!
- We also have scarves, but please feel free to bring a robe to wear between wardrobe changes, etc…..
Will I be nude, wear lingerie or clothes the entire time?
This is entirely up to you. We typically do not photograph nudity and have a belief that we can capture some great intimate photos by leaving more to the imagination. Tasteful, classic boudoir and glamour images will often send a photograph into the “sexy-stratosphere”. We believe “implied nudity” is a preferred means to achieve the Sweet, Sexy, Sultry, Smokin’ Hot! you we are looking for!
However, if doing nude photos is something you are interested in, we will discuss during your consultation and develop a plan to meet your desires.
How long does it take to get my photos?
Your photos will be available for viewing after 2 weeks. You will be asked to return to the studio to preview your images. You will have choices to purchase various products including enlargement prints, albums etc. Prior to your preview visit, only one or two images will be retouched. Once you have selected the images you want to purchase, all of those images will be retouched before printing.
How long you will be waiting for a particular product will depend upon what you purchase. Enlargement prints will take approximately two weeks, while albums may take a month from the date of your preview visit and order, to allow for design and printing.
Will you be using my photos on your website?
The contract you sign will have an “opt-in” or “opt-out” choice as a model release that would allow us to use your images for our marketing purposes. However we never use anyone’s photos without specific written permission, so do not fear: your images are safe with SSSSH! Boudoir & Glamour Photography. Even if you have signed the model release, we will still seek your approval before using any image in a public media.
Do you offer Boudoir and Glamour parties?
Are you looking for a unique Bachelorette Party? Would a “Wine and Boudie” party with six of your besties make for a fun evening? SSSSH! Boudoir & Glamour Photography offers party packages either here at the studio, in your own home, a local hotel or other favorite location. If this is something you are interested in organizing let us know and we’ll be happy to arrange your party. Hair and makeup professionals can make this a really fun event and we have several professionals whose services are available.
What is your cancellation policy?
Once you have paid your $75 non-refundable scheduling fee, we block out your time so that no other client can be scheduled that day/evening. We are however flexible and realize life happens, so if you need to reschedule to move your date or time, please let us know as soon as possible, so your scheduling fee can be honored to reschedule your session anytime within 90 days.
What is my investment for a SSSSH! Boudoir & Glamour Photography session?
In-studio sessions start at $99 and vary depending upon the time and number of outfits you wish to be photographed in. Each session will include multiple poses and backgrounds to bring out the Sweet, Sexy, Sultry, Smokin’ HOT! you. We’ll review the available options during your consultation. Just choose the best one to fit your budget and available time. We’ll take it from there!
If you want to add a hair and makeup professional, we can work with you to secure those services for an additional fee. You can include one or both for any session depending upon your needs, or you are welcome to bring a friend to do your hair and makeup.
In addition to the session fee, we have a recommended offering of products that our guests have found popular and will share with you during your consultation. Prints and albums vary depending upon size, finish, print or page count and mounting. We will review the available products and their prices again during your image preview and order meeting. During that visit you may place an order for your choice of products. The full product payment is due when you place your order.
As a Tennessee business operating in Lincoln County, we collect and pay sales tax on all session fees and product prices.
