FAQs

A Boudoir Photography Session is a completely different experience and it’s certainly not something we do everyday. For some of us, it’s a once in a lifetime experience and, as such, many questions may come to mind. We’ve been asked lots of different questions in the past so decided to put a little section together to try and help answer your questions – from wardrobe selection to how the session works. If you have any questions that are not answered below, please don’t hesitate to contact me (Helen) on 01722 328909 or 07866 440740

Why should I have a Boudoir Session?

When everywhere you look you are faced with images of “perfect” women, photoshopped to within an inch of their lives, its no wonder we struggle with self image even though we know these women aren’t real!

You wont find perfection by loosing a few lbs or by trying to hide those tiny imperfections, I believe you are beautiful now and at Boudoir by Helen Rushton we’ll show you you are too!

We’ll treat you to a professional make over not to make you look better but to make you feel better and see yourself the way we, your best friends and your partner see you – as the beautiful and full of fun person you really are.

Beauty comes from confidence and I’m here to show you the way regardless of your age, size or shape!

What do you offer and what products can I buy?

Boudoir by Helen Rushton offer a luxury personalised service without equal and have put together a range of collections for you to choose between from our most popular products or if you have something very specific in mind we have an A La Carte option too – all our collections can be found by going to our “PRICES” page and for any other information please email myboudoir@helenrushtonphotography.co.uk

What should I wear?

We don’t supply wardrobe but have some great suggestions on what you might have at home that would be beautiful and/or what to purchase and bring with you. Please bring a variety of lingerie, shoes and jewelry. We will work with you to create the look you want. When you are choosing lingerie, consider choosing more than one set to get a variety of looks.

Lingerie looks best when it’s form-fitting. Push-up bras. Snug tank tops and camisoles. Bikini or thong underwear. Boy shorts, cheeky panties. Vintage lace. A little silk robe. Negligées, corsets or stockings. Anything sheer, flowy, floral, sweet, or romantic. Something that’s HIS – A button-down collared shirt, necktie, his comfy old tee shirt, a favorite team jersey. Jewelry – pearls, earrings, necklaces. Give yourself lots of choices. Aim for classic, natural, and timeless. Be careful with trends (nail art, severe hairstyles, funky color combinations). You don’t want your images to look dated in five years

Will my session be with a female photographer ?

Yes! With such personal portraits, it may be reassuring for both you and the man in your life that Boudoir by Helen Rushton is an all female team.

I’ve had my session, what now?

Unlike most studios we’re going to show you your best images on the same day as your shoot! You can pop out for a coffee so I can download and edit your images so when you come back to the studio you can see how amazing you look and decide on the products you wish to showcase your fabulous images on!

Will my images be shown on your website or in your studio ?

The images shown on our website, blog and in-studio displays are shown with the client’s permission ONLY. At the end of your session, you will be given an optional model release form that is completely voluntary to sign.  If you choose not to sign the release, your images will not be seen by anyone other than me! I fully understand and respect the privacy of my clients.

Sounds great … but I’m feeling nervous!
There’s no need to worry, it’s natural to feel this way!  When I had my own boudoir session done, I didn’t sleep the night before I was so nervous (and I’m telling you, the baggy saggy eyes weren’t a great look!!)  I will guide you through each pose and know exactly which angles to capture for all body types to make you look like the beautiful woman you are. You don’t need to know how to pose, and I’ll never tell you to “look sexy” because you already do! Because I run a personalised, luxury boutique experience, sessions are designed to allow plenty of time to relax and feel comfortable which really shows in the final images. So leave everything up to us … just relax and enjoy yourself!

I have a friend who is excited to book a Boudoir session as well!

We have a fabulous Referral Scheme that is open to all of our clients! For each new client that you refer to Boudoir by Helen Rushton who books a session, you will receive a £100 print gift voucher! Take advantage of the referral program as often as you like by spreading the word!

Print Gift vouchers are awarded after the new client’s session. Print gift vouchers have no cash value and can only be used by the original referrer and are not transferable.

I’d love to give a session as a gift. Can I do that?

Certainly! Gift Certificates are available for session fees and/or products just give me a call on 01722 328909 to order yours and I’ll post them out in a gorgeous little gift pack for you.

Do you offer Male Boudoir (or Dudeoir) sessions?

I am afraid I do not photograph men in the Boudoir Studio at all. Boudoir Photography for me is about giving women confidence and showing them how to look and feel fabulous and as a result I choose not to photograph men.

I have a question that isn’t listed above
