Common Boudoir Questions

I want my clients to feel as informed and comfortable as possible.  Hopefully you will clearly see the value in what we do here at Boudoir Los Angeles and trust that I’ll give you the best experience imaginable.

These are the most common Boudoir Questions I get:

Q: Can you make me look like the “models” on your site?

Most of the women I work with aren’t professional models. This includes the photos on the website.  These women are real people — mothers, daughters, wives, fiancées, girlfriends, etc. — with dreams and insecurities, just like you and me, and every one of them is beautiful and unique. Boudoir Photography is designed to bring out the best side of you, so that you look fabulous in your photographs.

Q: Can you make me look twenty pounds lighter in a sexy boudoir photography shoot?

Am I able to make you look twenty pounds lighter in your boudoir shoot? The honest answer is yes, I can. As a professional photographer, I know how to pose my subject, and which lighting to use to make you to look your best. I have been retouching photos for more than a decade, so I do have a few tricks up my sleeve. But I am a firm believer in the natural beauty of women, and I am convinced that your dress size has nothing to do with how attractive or sexy you can be.

With that in mind, I retouch the photos in a way that only enhances them. I have been shooting fashion and editorial work for years, so I’m not going to lie, I do LOVE retouching! Every photo needs a little retouching, and every photo we see on the newsstands and in the magazines has been retouched. Retouching can do amazing things.  Yes, it can be abused, but I don’t believe I am guilty of that. Seeing as how we compare ourselves to these stars whom we see every day and are somehow convinced that we can’t look like that, I am here to show you that YES YOU CAN!

It’s time to level the playing field and show you that with the right photographer, lighting, equipment and tools, you can be just as glamorous as the celebs you see in magazines.

A boudoir session with me is guaranteed to bring out your fabulous, most sexy self! Although I will help you become the most beautiful person you can be in these photographs, I will not transform you into someone you’re not. Through my photography, I want to help you appreciate the unique radiance that already exists inside of you, not create something “other” that isn’t real.

Q: I’m normally very shy and conservative.  Will I look nervous in the photos?

Boudoir photography is an incredibly empowering experience! The session may not transform you into a daring vixen, but it will help you be come more confident, which will show in the finished product. Also, you’re not doing this alone. Our team will be there to help you pose and relax, and you’ll probably have more fun than you thought you would. I love what I do. You can’t help but feed off of my enthusiastic, encouraging energy and have a good time as well! (Okay, the champagne helps, too!)

Q: Are your packages pricey?

For top-of-the line customization, the value meets the price. We maintain a dynamic range of products and unparalleled services at our custom photography studio.

At Boudoir Los Angeles, we: 

Offer the finest portraiture services and products available.

Create timeless images that match our high standards.

Provide photographs that are professionally edited, color-corrected and retouched.

Keep you and your total experience in mind.

Offer our specialty fine art pieces that you will appreciate for a lifetime.

Q: Do you provide the outfits?

No, but I can advise you on what looks best. You will have a design consultation when you book the session, and we will send you a list of recommendations of stores we love.

Q: What types of outfits do you recommend?

Whatever exudes confidence in you is what you should wear. Every woman is different, and a sexy bra/panties set may work for one person, while a slinky off the shoulder sweater may be best for another. If you have any questions about an outfit, don’t hesitate to ask during our consultation. If you need a little more help, one of our amazing stylists can be booked.

Q: Do you offer hair and makeup?

Boudoir Los Angeles works with world-class celebrity hairstylists and makeup artists who are available for booking during your session.

Q: How far in advance do I need to book a boudoir appointment?

Optimally, we recommend you book a minimum of 2-3 weeks before your chosen date.  Weekends go faster than weekdays.  Please note that your album or image box may take up to six weeks to complete.  Keep this in mind if you are giving this as a gift.

Q: Who is Marisa?

I am! Read more about me in the Bio section of my website.
