If you’ve never done a boudoir shoot before, you really don’t know what to expect. One of the misconceptions about boudoir sessions is that they can be produced as quickly as a family session. In general, this is not true.
First, the more variety you have in your outfit changes, the better your shoot will be. You may find that you thought you liked a particular outfit, but once the shoot is said and done and you’re viewing your portfolio, it turns out you really love the portraits in your 2nd choice of outfit. Outfit changes take time, time away from the actual portrait making. Outfit variety is definitely the very best option for your shoot and our highest recommendation for a robust portfolio, but changing clothes is time consuming, especially certain types of lingerie.
Second, instructing you on how to stand, lay, or move takes a great deal of time. We pose you from head to toe and there is a lot that goes into posing that you probably are not aware of. As trained photographers, we are looking at the position of your arms, legs, neck, chin, facial expression, hair, weight, the background, etc. All of this must be perfect before each shot is successfully taken = time.
Shondy Studios offers two different options:
Our regular session is $149 THE NOONER $199

When it’s all said and done, with an hour long session, Shondy Studios in Omaha will show you anywhere from 20 to 60 images in your final portfolio. It also includes hair and make-up, so not only do you look your very best, you get that super model experience = priceless.
Our 30 minute sessions will produce anywhere from 10 to 20 portraits. Hair and make-up is not included, but can be added for an additional $75.
In thinking about what you want your end product to be, what length of session is appropriate for you? If you want the full experience, and more options for end product like albums, etc., book the regular session. If you are in need of just a few shots for a simple 5×7 gift print or quick pick-me-up, the Nooner, might be for you.
No matter which session you choose, Shondy Studios is going to work hard to make you feel like a supermodel, and produce amazing portraits for you. A boudoir session is something every woman should make time for at least once in their life.
