Do you photograph my age, size, orientation etc... ?
Of course! There is no age, size, or orientation that is “right” for Boudoir, this is an incredible experience for everyone! Everyone deserves to feel shamelessly sexy and confident in who they are.
I don't know how to pose, is it okay I don't have any experience modeling?
If you like our portfolio or IG, you’ll be happy to know that they are made up of almost entirely people without posing/modeling experience. (And most of the people who have done something like this before are simply returning for a second time, who are having a different life event, or just had a really good time the first time and are treating themselves again!)
Things like making sure you look comfortable and are posed well, are all part of our responsibility and something we view as part of being the best boudoir photographers we can be!
Is my comfort zone too small or too big?
99% of people that work with us are pushing their comfort zone to do it, so it’s important for us to know exactly where your line is before and during your shoot to make we can encourage you to accomplish what you want, but not push you if you are uncomfortable. So we will always have a conversation before we ever pick up our camera.
We believe that learning to love and embrace your body is the very heart of boudoir. And we’ve found even when we only take a few nude photographs, the images where people can’t hide behind props and outfits have some of the biggest impact. If that’s too much for you don’t worry, we’ll talk through it all and make sure we do what is right for you. If you have any specific questions feel free to send us an email.
Sometimes people may have a specific idea in mind whether that is certain poses, actions, or outfits. People are sometimes understandably shy to share the details of what they want from a boudoir session. But know that after years of doing this, I don’t think we can be that surprised anymore. But if you are really feeling nervous to share, feel free to ask us about what our boundaries are as a good conversation starter.
What is boudoir?
Boudoir is all about empowering women and all people, who choose to love their bodies. It’s about seeing the beauty that is and always was there, even if you didn’t always see it. Boudoir means that sexy and sexuality aren’t dirty words or anything to be ashamed of!
Luxury Boudoir Albums
Our luxury boudoir albums are the perfect way to memorialize your session. Silky smooth pages and black gilding around the edges make the album itself a work of art.
What we are about
Hear about what a session can be, in the words of those who have already gone through the experience. Our website is full of call outs that highlight experiences that range from empowering, to joyous, to healing. Check out our testimonials page to find most of them in one place.
Where do you photograph?
We are CT photographers and consider Connecticut our home, but we've traveled before and had lots of amazing people travel to shoot with us! We love to shoot in different places, and feel free to ask us about plans that involve traveling. Typically we shoot in the Hartford area of Connecticut. We've photographed multiple locations, from in-home shoots, to the great outdoors, to studios, but if you have something different mind please let us know what you are thinking!
How and when do I schedule an appointment?
Fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page or go to our Contact page. If all else fails you can email us at hello (at) chrisandbeccaphotography.com and we can find a time that works for everyone. For scheduling boudoir, our shoots take place almost entirely on weekdays.
How long is a boudoir photoshoot?
Plan for a typical session to last a total of 3 hours. The first hour will be getting hair and makeup and the next 2 hours are having fun photographing with Chris and Becca!
How long does it take until I can see the photographs?
Usually about 2-3 weeks. Then you will have a slideshow reveal with some chocolate, getting to see all your hard work both posing and putting yourself out there! Also don’t hesitate to tell us, if you’re planning on your boudoir album being a gift for a special occasion (eg wedding, birthday, anniversary) and we’ll try to work together to make sure everything works out well!
I don’t want my images being used on your website/blog, is that okay?
Don’t worry we understand that privacy is important in what we do. Every image of our work you see on this website or our instagram was specifically given permission before it was ever posted. At the end of our image reveal we will talk with you about if you want to allow us to share none, some, or all of your images.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes we do! We offer customized payment plans with 0 interest, they are simply there to help breakup payments for those who would prefer to pay over time.
