Boudoir Mini Sessions

Is a mini session for you?

Feeling beautiful and confident is something every woman deserves!

In modern times, boudoir sessions are a fantastic experience for any woman to become empowered! There isn't anything more rewarding than seeing yourself in a new light and appreciating your beauty. Our boudoir queens have told me numerous times that after their session, they feel more confident and beautiful than ever before ❤️

I want to be completely honest with you, last year, I started thinking about how being a luxury brand can be problematic. Because my goal with our studio isn't about just creating luxury experiences but empowering as many everyday women to feel like queens in their skin- no matter their budget.

Because on the one hand, we have boudoir queens who did a session with us and, within a few months, want to do another boudoir session with a new wardrobe or theme but weren't quite ready to invest in an entire session after just doing one.

On the other hand, we had a list of boudoir queens dying to do a boudoir session, but maybe they were in college or just starting their career and didn't have the resources to invest in themselves quite yet.

For context, the reason why I am so passionate about boudoir isn't because of money, but because I want to empower as many everyday women as I can. So I started thinking, what if we could design a boudoir experience that was luxurious, fun, pampering, and affordable for every client.

Because my goal with our studio isn't about just creating luxury experiences but empowering as many everyday women to feel like queens in their skin- no matter their budget.

But it wasn't easy. Being a luxury studio means we charge luxury prices because of the many resources and care that go into every session.

It took a while, and I am excited to announce that we created the perfect solution for our boudoir mini sessions! This post will cover what a mini session covers, how to make the most out of a mini boudoir session, and if a mini session or the complete boudoir experience is right for you!

Imagine getting a boudoir experience in less than an hour without the investment of an entire session.

 

What are the benefits of boudoir mini sessions?

There are a few benefits to talk about when it comes to boudoir mini sessions!

The first benefit is the shorter time commitment. Because let's face it, sometimes life gets in the way, and we don't always have the 2-3 hours to commit to an entire boudoir session. But with a mini session, you can get stunning, jaw-dropping photos in a fraction of the time. Imagine creating breathtaking imagery that yours to keep and cherish for a lifetime, all in under half an hour!

The second benefit is the lower investment. Don't get me wrong, the whole boudoir experience is worth every penny and then some. But I understand that not everyone is ready to invest in themselves. This is why our mini sessions are the perfect solution!

The third benefit is for boudoir queens who have already done a session. There are so many reasons why our queens book more sessions.

Maybe they got a new favorite outfit and are dying to show it off. Perhaps they want to do a themed session (like our popular holiday sessions!) Or maybe they want to update their photos and feel confident again. By offering mini sessions, you now have more options to choose from.

One more benefit I want to mention is that mini sessions are a great way to test the waters and see if boudoir is for you. I know the idea of a boudoir can be nerve-wracking, and that's normal! But by doing a mini session, you can dip your toe in the water and see what you think.

 

What-to-wear-to-a-mini-boudoir-session

What should I bring to wear? What is the recommended wardrobe?

The consultation process is one element that I didn't want to sacrifice with our mini sessions. We love taking the time to chat with our clients and take out all guesswork and learning what you are dreaming up for your session. The consultation call can be done via phone, facetime, or my favorite, in person.

The wonderful thing about boudoir is nearly anything can be an outfit, including wearing no outfits. There are many times we offer themed shoots as well, which are essentially mini sessions but they are focused on a theme. We also include a wardrobe planning guide with every mini session booking!

Our guides cover everything from what to wear, how to style your hair, what kind of makeup to do, and more. We want you to walk into your session feeling confident, beautiful, and like a total badass! After all, you will have images that will last a lifetime- let's make sure you love them!

We also have open communication, so if you have any questions about what to wear or bring, our team is always happy to help. We want your experience with us to be easy and fun, from start to finish!

How long do the sessions last? How many outfit changes can I do? How mini boudoir sessions work.

We found the best way to do boudoir mini sessions is to use a credit system (I know, the word "credit" isn't exactly the sexiest word, but it works). Every credit purchased is an outfit with six photos or a short boudoir film. For example:

If you buy three credits, you can do two outfits and one video. Or you can do two outfits and receive a total of 18 photos! 🔥 The choice is yours!

Remember that you don't have to use all of your credits in one session. You can always come back and use them at a later date! There is no pressure to "get it all done" in one day. If you want to wait to use your credits, that's totally fine! We understand that life happens and sometimes things come up.

Time slots vary depending on how many credits you purchase. You can expect outfit generally takes about 15 minutes. So if you book a three-credit session, plan on being with us for approximately 45 minutes.

Are professional hair and makeup included?

One of the most challenging decisions in creating the perfect boudoir mini session experience is whether or not to include our professional hair and makeup artist (or HMUA). To ensure our mini session price point was accessible to everyone, we decided not to have HMUA in the base price.

We will cover this at the end of this post, but we concluded that if you want professional hair and makeup in your boudoir experience, it may be best to consider doing a complete session instead.

This way, you get the whole pampering experience with plenty of time for hair and make up and multiple outfit changes, locations, etc.

On the one hand, you want to look your absolute best for your photos. On the other hand, you may be comfortable doing your hair and makeup yourself, or you may have a friend or family member who can help you out.

It's really up to you and what will make you feel the most comfortable!

If you decide to add HMUA service to your mini session, we have a fantastic team who will take care of you and make sure you look fabulous!

How much do mini sessions cost?

The price point is up to how much you want to invest in your experience. Generally speaking, the general price as of the beginning of 2022, most boudoir sessions have started at the cost of $345 per credit. Another factor is availability. We typically dedicate an entire day to doing multiple boudoir sessions. This way, you're not rushed and we can get a great variety of looks for you.

We also have a newsletter dedicated to announcing boudoir mini sessions. If you are part of our mini boudoir newsletter or our general newsletter, you will be the first to know before all the spots fill up! If you aren't part of our newsletter and want to sign up, you can click the button below!

Are mini sessions worth it?

There are numerous reasons why our clients book a mini session. Every single time, from when we were trying out ideas till the last week of writing this article, every boudoir queen that has done a mini session was blown away by the result.

I'm not saying this to brag, but to show you that there is proof that these sessions are worth every penny. After all, how can you not be excited about an experience that not is going to make you feel sexy, but also provide you with lifelong keepsakes that are tailored to you and your personality?

Here is a video from a boudoir queen seeing her boudoir video. She was sooo generous to record her reaction for us ❤️

 

And every photo you have seen in this post is from real clients. When building boudoir collections that we offer, I always wanted to ensure that no matter what collection is purchased, every boudoir queen will feel empowered, confident, and beautiful.

However, with that said, a mini session isn't for every client.

When a mini boudoir session may not be for you

You may get the most out of the whole experience a full boudoir session offers rather than a mini-session if:

  • You want to explore more with different looks, hair and makeup changes, outfits, and locations.
  • Suppose you want to create a boudoir album. There is magic to discover when you physically have a boudoir album. (Fun fact, we used to do a package where we offered a black book for the boudoir session. However, after adding an HMUA, an album, the price was getting close to an entire session, so we had to cut it out)
  • If you are thinking of purchasing more than 3 credits
  • If you want to gift your boudoir photos for a special occasion.

However, a mini boudoir session may be perfect for you as well!

Here are some examples of when a boudoir mini session may be an ideal fit for you:

  • You want to do a boudoir session, but the full price is a bit out of your budget.
  • You aren't sure if you will like boudoir photography and want to test it out without fully committing.
  • You already did a session, but now you want to try out a new look or outfit.
  • You saw one of our themed shoots and want to give it a try. (For example, white shirt themed shoot or our shower themed shoots 🔥)
  • You are celebrating a special occasion, or you want to gift a special occasion

However, all our boudoir sessions will include:

  • An undeniable feeling of being a boss babe
  • Professional guidance throughout your session. We direct you on how to pose, light you perfectly, and give you tips on how to feel comfortable in front of the camera.
  • You will walk away feeling like a glamourous supermodel with a newfound confidence that you never knew you had.
  • Boudoir outfit styling assistance
  • Private online galleries to download your photos.

And most importantly, an experience to remember. Boudoir photos serve as a great reminder of how unique, beautiful, and badass you are. Once you see yourself in a new light, you will know that you always got this no matter what is going on in your life.

In conclusion: How to get the most out of your boudoir mini session

Now that you know all there is to know about mini boudoir sessions, it's time to start preparing for your very own session! Here are a few tips on what you need to do before your big day:

1. Be on time! Because we only have a limited amount of time with you, it is essential that you are on time for your session. We want to make sure that we can get as many looks as possible, please show up at the start of your time slot.

2. Come prepared! Make sure to bring all the outfits and accessories you want to use during your session. This includes lingerie, heels, jewelry, and anything else you may want to use!

3. Be confident! Remember that you are a boss babe, and you can do anything! Come into your session with confidence, and you will be sure to rock it! I always have zero expectations from anyone that walks into our studio. All that I ask is that you show up 🙂

4. Expect to enjoy yourself! Your boudoir shoot is going to be super fun and is a time for you to let loose! It's going to feel like a party dedicated to celebrating you and the body that carried you to this point! Enjoy yourself and make sure to have a good time!
