Booking your Boudoir Session, how hard can it be?
Honestly it is not hard at all, once you know when you want to book it! I recommend that women schedule at least a few months in advanced, so we have enough time to talk everything over, figure out exactly what you need, and so you have a little bit more budget and shopping time. However there are a few more things to keep in mind when getting ready to book a Boudoir Session.
Are you doing this session fully for yourself, or do you want to give these images to someone as a gift?
If you are giving your imagery to someone else as a gift, I recommend having your shoot date scheduled about 2 months prior to when you need the finished product in-hand. That means that if you are giving this as a Christmas present, then you need to schedule it so that your session is no later than October 25th, that is if you plan to have it all paid for before early December as well.
Your viewing session will be 1-2 weeks after your session and depending on what you order, and if you pay for everything up front or not, (make sure to read the about payment plans below) it could take 3-4 weeks for you products to arrive at my studio, and if you are having them shipped to your address and not picking your products up with me, it could take an additional couple weeks for your products to get from me to you. I don't trust the mail to be speedy, but if you need me to rush ship something, I can at an extra cost.
Are you wanting an outdoor session? Well then we need to talk about seasons, do you want blooming flowers, sunny summer, autumn leaves, white winter? If you want something in the fall, I suggest you book as soon as possible as that is my busiest time of the year and gets filled up pretty quick!
Now I mentioned payment plans. You can choose to pay off your Boudoir Products through a payment plan, a percentage of your total will be due at your viewing session, then we can figure out the rest based on your specific needs. You can also choose a collection or products and pay for it all before we even have the shoot, which saves you a little money.
The reason this makes a difference in when you choose to book is that you won't get any of your products until they are fully paid off. So if you wanted to give a little album to your partner for Christmas, and you wanted a $1400 package but could only pay about $200 a month, you would need to at least start paying for your products no later than May. You could sign a contract and start payments before your session, that is an option, or you could book your session 7 months before you need your products in hand.
Lots to think about, but the main thing you need to know before you book, is that you are ready to embrace your womanly power and find YOUR sexy. You are ready to find your confidence and rewrite your narrative of what sexy means to you!
