Frequently Asked Questions

Where do the shoots take place?

Absolutely not, unless you give explicit permission. At Boudoir by Sean, your privacy is our utmost priority. We want you to feel entirely at ease with your decision to have a boudoir session with us, and we assure you that your photos will not be shared without your explicit consent.

While we wholeheartedly encourage our clients to let us share their images and their empowering stories, we understand and respect the decision if you prefer to keep them private. By allowing us to share your photos, you can help inspire other women and give them the confidence to embark on this transformative journey for themselves.

Remember, this is your journey and your story. We are here to support you, honor your privacy, and celebrate your unique beauty. Every decision regarding your photos is entirely in your hands.

Do you offer hair and make-up services?

Yes, I certainly can assist with that. While you're welcome to handle your own hair and makeup, I also have a network of highly talented professional hair and makeup artists whom I can recommend for your shoot. These are artists who are accustomed to preparing clients for photo sessions, ensuring you'll look your absolute best for the camera. They offer stunning work, comparable to what you'd expect on a celebrity photoshoot. Please feel free to reach out if you'd like me to arrange these services for your boudoir session.

Can I do my own hair and make-up?

Absolutely! You're more than welcome to handle your own hair and makeup for your boudoir session. If you have a favorite salon or artist you trust, feel free to schedule a session with them prior to your photo shoot. When it comes to makeup, I highly recommend opting for airbrushing, as it tends to yield the best results under studio lighting.

Remember, this is your session and your chance to express yourself. So whether you choose to do your own hair and makeup or hire a professional, the most important thing is that you feel confident, comfortable, and authentically you.

What should I wear for a boudoir session?

It depends on your personal style and comfort level. Many clients wear whatever makes them feel confident and sexy. This can be lingerie, a bodysuit, a silk robe, or even just a simple bra and panty set. Still, you can also wear something “every day” that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Think of a button-down shirt.

Do you provide wardrobe and styling assistance?

Yes, we absolutely do provide wardrobe and styling assistance! At Boudoir by Sean, we understand that what you wear and how you style yourself can make a significant impact on your photos. We're here to help make sure you look and feel your absolute best. I personally offer tips and suggestions for wardrobe choices and styling tips tailored to your individual session.

Moreover, upon booking your session, we provide a detailed guide on what to bring and wear for your boudoir session. This guide has been carefully crafted to help you prepare for your session, ensuring you feel confident and stunning. Remember, this is your session, and your comfort and satisfaction are our utmost priority. So whether you need advice on selecting outfits or reassurance on styling choices, we're here to assist every step of the way!

What is your policy on nudity?

At Boudoir by Sean, your comfort and preferences are our topmost priorities. As for nudity, it is completely up to you. You are in control of how much skin you want to show during your session.

Many of our clients opt for the "implied nude" look where they appear nude but are strategically covered through careful posing, props, or fabric. The popular "white sheet" look is one such example, offering a tastefully sensual approach while maintaining your comfort.

There are also clients who choose to go topless or even fully nude. However, we respect and uphold your boundaries. We encourage you to explore beyond your comfort zone for a liberating experience, but we will never push you into anything that makes you uncomfortable or that you might regret.

Remember, a boudoir session is about celebrating and embracing your unique beauty in the way you feel most comfortable. We are here to guide and support you in this empowering journey.

Can I bring a friend or partner to the session?

Absolutely, you can bring a friend! At Boudoir by Sean, we prioritize your comfort and aim to ensure you have an incredible experience during your photo session. If having a friend there would make you feel more at ease and provide moral support, we generally permit this, but there are a few conditions:

  1. Please notify us BEFORE the day of your session if you intend to bring someone along.
  2. The friend you bring must be female and over 18.
  3. The person you bring should be encouraging and supportive. We kindly ask that they avoid being critical, cynical, or distracting during the session.
  4. Boyfriends, fiances, and significant others are welcome to drop you off, see the studio, and help you get set up. However, for the duration of the session, we ask that they step out. They can return for the reveal after the session is complete. The only exception is for a couples' session.

Remember, the goal is to make your boudoir experience as comfortable, enjoyable, and empowering as possible! That being said, if you truly want to immerse yourself in this empowering journey, I would recommend going through the whole experience on your own. It's a personal journey of self-love and confidence, and doing it solo can make it even more transformative and rewarding.

Do you shoot Erotic/Fetish?

Absolutely! At Boudoir by Sean, we do have experience with erotic photography and certain styles of fetish photography. This is a more specialized area of boudoir and requires clear communication to ensure we capture your vision accurately while maintaining your comfort and consent.

If this is something you're interested in exploring during your session, please mention it during our initial consultation. Please note that I typically do not bring up this topic unless a client expresses interest.

If you do wish to pursue erotic or fetish photography, I would encourage you to be ready for an open and honest conversation about your specific desires and boundaries. It's crucial that we understand exactly what you want to capture, as well as any areas or themes you're not comfortable with.

Remember, our primary focus is on creating a comfortable, respectful, and empowering environment for you. Your satisfaction and comfort are our top priorities, and we are here to create images that you'll love.

How long are boudoir sessions?

A boudoir session at Boudoir by Sean typically spans between 1 to 3 hours, depending on the duration of the session you've selected. This time frame allows us to create a variety of stunning images and capture your unique beauty in different settings and outfits.

Following the photography session, we dedicate time to review your photos together. This process involves selecting the images you wish to purchase and can take up to an additional 2 hours. The duration largely depends on the length of your session and the number of images we've created.

Overall, we're here to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable experience, without feeling rushed. We believe in quality over quantity and make sure to provide ample time for each part of your boudoir experience!

What if I'm not comfortable being photographed?

It’s okay if you’re nervous or uncomfortable! I aim to create a safe and supportive environment where you feel at ease. We can take breaks as needed, and I’ll guide you through poses that flatter your body.

Do I need to have a specific body type to do boudoir session?

Absolutely not! You don’t have to be a model or look like one to have a successful boudoir photography session. I’ve been photographing women of all ages, shapes, and sizes for the past 15 years, and my goal is to make you feel comfortable and confident during the shoot.

I’ll help you choose outfits that flatter your body, guide you through poses that show off your best features, and use lighting techniques to highlight your natural beauty. You’re hiring me to bring out the best in you, and I guarantee you’ll leave the session feeling more confident and empowered than ever. Your only job is to relax, have fun, and enjoy the experience. Just trust me and you’ll be amazed by the stunning photos we create together!

I'm not sure what I want to order yet, can I decide when I see my photos?

Absolutely! You can decide which products to purchase after you’ve seen your photos. During the image reveal session after your shoot, we can discuss the different product options available, such as a fine art album, luxury album, metallic wall print, and more.

Once you’ve made your decision, your images will be edited and the digital files will be provided to you promptly. If you choose to order prints or an album, please note that it may take 3-4 weeks from the images being retouched for them to arrive.

"Absolutely Amazing Experience!"
A male boudoir photographer?

Yes, I understand that having a male boudoir photographer may raise some concerns for some women, but others may actually prefer it. In fact, there are several benefits to having a male boudoir photographer:

  • Men and women often have different perspectives on what is attractive, so having a male photographer can bring a unique viewpoint to the shoot.
  • Many clients who are giving these portraits as a gift to their significant other want a man’s opinion and perspective on the images.

  • Many women find it easier to show their sexy side in front of a male photographer.

  • Many clients have reported feeling more comfortable in front of a male photographer and said they don’t feel judged.

  • I’m known for creating a completely comfortable, professional, and fun atmosphere during my shoots, and I’m confident I can capture photos that exceed your expectations.

  • It’s worth noting that male photographers often shoot for major publications like Playboy, FHM, Maxim, and Sports Illustrated Swim Suits

Rest assured. My priority is to make you feel comfortable and empowered during your boudoir shoot. One thing that sets me apart as a male boudoir photographer is my knack for making women feel comfortable and confident during their shoots.

Many of my clients have told me that they were nervous at first but ended up feeling more at ease than they could have ever imagined with anyone else as their photographer. With my professional and personable approach, I’m confident that I can create a comfortable, relaxed, and fun atmosphere that will help you let your guard down and showcase your most beautiful and sensual self.
