FAQ

Do I need to bring my own outfits?

We do offer a client closet for our ladies to use. We have items ranging from size xs to 4x and we are adding new pieces all the time, If you want to wear items from our closet all you need to bring is a nude colored thong to your session to wear under the outfits. We do recommend bringing one or two pieces that you love as well just so you know you have something you really like!

What is the cost of a session?

The session fee for our full boudoir experience is $400. To book your session and get on our calendar it is $300 and the remaining balance of $100 is due to our hair and makeup artist on the day of your session. The session fee includes your access to the client closet, session and wardrobe planning, our time shooting, full retouching of images, and your portrait reveal session.  No images or products are included in your session fee. There is a minimum product purchase of $1200 at your reveal, but clients typically spend about $2500.

What is a portrait reveal session?

We are a full service portrait studio, This means we are with you every step of the way! Between 10 days and 2 weeks after your session you will come back to the studio to see your portraits. You will view a slideshow set to music and then we will go through your portraits one by one and help you choose the images and products that best suit your needs. We offer many beautiful heirloom products that are handmade with high quality materials and stand the test of time. We absolutely love every one of the items we offer and we can not wait to help you design the perfect collection for you. 

Will my images be posted online?

That is TOTALLY up to you! While we love when clients allow us to share their images, it is not required. Your comfort and privacy are very important to us! Every client signs a release letting us know if their want their images kept private, if they only want anonymous images with their face not showing to be posted, or if they want us to share them all! The ladies you see on our social media and website have all given permission for the images to be shown. 

Do you offer payment plans?

We do offer payment plan options. We understand that boudoir portraits are an investment and we want every one to be able to get everything they want! For that reason we offer two payment plan options. Our preferred payment plan is through Paypal credit. You can apply online and if you are approved, you can pay for your products in full the day of your reveal and get them right away! We also offer in studio payment plans if Paypal credit is not an option. For this plan we break your total down into 6 payments. The first payment is due the day of your reveal and the remaining 5 will be charged to your card on file on the same day every month. Once the final payment is processed your products will be ordered.

Do I get a discount if I do my own hair and makeup?

Hair and makeup services are complimentary. If you choose not to use her service, our fee remains the same. But I promise you WANT to have her do your hair and makeup. It is important to use products and techniques that look good in photos and our artist knows exactly what we need! 

How do I book a session?

If you are ready to book a session just us a message on our facebook page or an email to info@rsphotos.net and we will go over everything you need to know!

How far in advance should I have my session?

You should book your session about 6 weeks in advance of when you need your products. This gives us time to get them edited, have your reveal, design products, order them, and have them delivered. 

Do you sell digital files?

We do offer a digital files of your photos in some of our photo collections. We also offer packages that contain ALL of your digital images so that you do not have to narrow them down!

Can I bring a friend to my session?

You can TOTALLY bring a friend to your session. I understand it is scary to think about showing up alone and getting naked to be photographed. Males are however not allowed in the shooting areas during sessions so they will need to wait in the waiting area. Female friends can be with you throughout your session however there is a no cell phone photo or video rule and clients do sometimes find it harder to relax and feel sexy with friends in the room so please keep that in mind. 

What if I start my period before my session?

It happens! It is totally fine if you start your period before you session and it is a concern that a lot of women have. As long as you can wear a tampon we are fine and we do not need to reschedule your session. If you do not wear tampons just send a message and we can get it figured out!

I am not sexy will you pose me?

YES! I photograph regular women just like you and me every day. These ladies are not models and nobody knows what to do. As long as you can follow simple easy directions on when to breathe and where to look we will be fine!

Do I have to get naked?

NOPE! This is all about you and your comfort level. Some ladies are totally fine getting naked and some ladies are not. Some ladies THINK they are not but by the end of their session they are feeling empowered and brave and decide to go for it. This is all up to you and what you want to do. 

What is your reschedule or cancellation policy?

We allow ONE complimentary reschedule date. We know that sometimes things come up our of no where. If you need to reschedule a second time you will need to pay another full booking fee to get a new date on the calendar. Your retainer is to take a spot on our calendar therefore if you decide to cancel your session, we do not refund the retainer.
