Frequently asked questions
Everything you want to know about the confidence sessions boudoir experience
What is boudoir?
Boudoir photography is all about YOU. It is NOT pornography. Pornography is often about degrading women, controlling women, and exploiting women. Boudoir is the opposite: it’s about taking back your body/sexuality, letting go of fear and shame, and enjoying/celebrating who you are, just as you are, today.
Where are you located? Do you travel?
The Confidence Sessions is located in a 1,000 sq.ft studio in Baltimore, MD. I travel for destination boudoir; either for individuals, or for groups of friends who all want their own session in their town. If you’re interested in a Confidence Session near you, please reach out for a quote!
When will I receive my photos?
It takes approximately 3-4 weeks to receive your images.
Do I have to get naked?
No, you do not have to get naked. Some women get naked, but it is always YOUR level of comfort that dictates what is photographed. Some women wear a cute off-the-shoulder sweater, booty shorts, or their husband’s oxford shirt.
I need to lose 10 pounds first, right?
NO, you do not need to lose 10 pounds first! The women who get photographed are of all shapes and sizes. Your confidence is not dictated by your jeans size, and neither is your beauty. I also know how to pose women to look their best. Don’t worry about your mommy tummy, or anything else that society has told you is less than perfect. I’ve got you.
What if I hate my photos?
We offer a money-back guarantee. If you aren’t in love with your photos, your session fee is refunded.
What do I wear?
You will be provided with a lingerie guide if you wish to go shopping for your own lingerie. I will help you pick out what to wear to look your best; outfit choice is SO important! There is also a studio closet that you may borrow from. We only ask that you bring a nude thong for hygiene purposes, as well as 2 outfits of your own, just in case you don’t like what we have.
I’m not photogenic. Can you help with that?
A lot of people believe they’re not photogenic. I say EVERYONE can look good with the correct lighting and posing—which is where I come in. You’ll never have to wonder what to do with your hands, your feet, or even your face. I will guide you and even demonstrate the poses for you myself. Professional hair and makeup are included in your session fee as well, so you have nothing to worry about!
Do I have to share my images online?
Absolutely NOT. These are YOUR images. Many clients can’t wait to share their images, but your privacy is always 100% respected.
I don’t have the confidence to do something like this.
Most of us don’t have the confidence to do something like this—however, this is how we grow in confidence…by doing the things that scare us. Also, I am here to help you, guide you, and be your biggest cheerleader. It is so gratifying to watch a woman enter the studio full of nerves, and truly blossom into a confident woman. The feelings of confidence and shamelessness are almost addicting—you won’t want your session to end!
