We Are Family

What gorgeous clients we have! Jackie came in for one of our mother/daughter sessions with her lovely daughter and then we snuck her son in for a few portraits with his mom and beautiful sister.  I had so much fun with these guys and I’m so glad they will have these precious portraits for a lifetime! #legacy #existinportraits

Mother-Daughter Portraits at Shondy Studios

We had so much fun with our recent mother/daughter sessions.  These portraits are so important, as they become your family’s legacy.  It is our mission to create beautiful portraits like these for every woman we meet.

These clients were particularly fun and down to Earth.  Here’s what mom said about their session:

What was your favorite thing about your shoot?

The casual and comfortable environment made it easy for my daughter to be herself…and give that authentic toothy smile every mother goes ga-ha over.

How did you feel when you saw your portraits for the first time?

Breathless. Amazed. These portraits surpassed any expectations I may have had.

What were other people’s reactions to your portraits?

Love Love Love. Several people have asked who did these…and I was not shy about telling them.

What would you tell someone else who was thinking about booking a portrait session with Shondy Studios?

Absolutely.

Was there anything that you wish would have been different about your session?

Nope. Best day ever!

5 Ways to Feel More Comfortable In Front of The Camera

  1. omaha, boudoir, photography, photographer, modern, portraits, fashion,Know Your Photographer.  The more you know your photographer, the more comfortable you will be.  Have a conversation with them about your shoot.  Follow their studio on social media sites and their company blog.  Our about page.
  2. Know What To Expect At Your Session. Spend some time talking to your photographer on the phone or in person.  It makes such a  big difference when you know what to expect  and what to wear.
  3. omahaboudoirphotographers, boudoir, photography, omaha, ne, shondy studios, sexy photos, intimate photography, bridal, gifts for grooms, omaha boudoir, omaha sexy photos, intimate,Take the Time to Try on all of Your Outfits BEFORE the Day of Your Shoot.  You will be a thousand times more likely to feel comfortable and sexy in what you are wearing.  Make sure you follow what the photography studio has told you about outfits…they are telling you the do’s and do not’s for a reason, so if you want to love your portraits pay close attention.
  4. Get Plenty of Sleep the Night Before Your Shoot.  omaha, boudoir, photography, photographer, bridal, wedding, gift, birthday, anniversary, sexy, intimate, lingerie,This is a no-brainer, but it can really make a difference in your appearance and in your overall experience with the session.  Also, do not drink too much alcohol the night before your session.  Hangovers never look good in portraits.
  5. Chill.  Even if you have never done a photo shoot of any kind before, photographers pose you from head to toe.  There is nothing you need to know how to do. 🙂  Relax and enjoy being the center of attention. 🙂

How Do I Know I’m Ready To Book A Boudoir Shoot

The thought of getting infront of a stranger in nothing, but lingerie is a daunting thought for most women, but as a photographer who has been shooting for 17 years, I can tell you, it’s not as scary as you think. Let’s address some common concerns…

1.  I’m not skinny enough.  This is something we, as women, tell ourselves when we are too scarred to face ourselves.   Here are some things to consider:

A. A PROFESSIONAL photographer is trained to capture the best you. A professional is skilled at photographing all shapes and sizes. Will a pro make you look like a size zero when you are a 16?  No, nor should they. They will,  however, make you look amazing and like the best version of you.

Should you have your bff take your boudoir portraits instead? ….Only if you want to feel like throwing yourself off a bridge…

Do yourself a favor, book a boudoir session with someone who really knows what they are doing.

B. It’s all about the outfits.   A professional photographer can and should walk you through what to wear that is going to be flattering on your body type.

What you wear has the power to enhance your problem areas or make you look like a sex kitten.

Wardrobe is not something you want to half ass…put some effort and thought into wearing the right thing and every body type can look amazing!

2. I’m too shy, I could never do anything like that. I can only speak for Shondy Studios and here is how we do our best to make you comfortable:

A. We give you a private dressing room to change in and store your belongings.

B.  It’s only you and the photographer in the studio during your shoot and your photographer is ALWAYS a woman.

C. The photographer will NEVER ask you to pose in a position you are not comfortable with.

D. We play music and chit-chat through out your session.

E. A Shondy Studios boudoir session is calm and relaxing. You are guided through the entire session.

F. Our boudoir sessions aren’t designed for models…they are designed for women who have forgotten their sexiness and inner strength. They are empowering. Our clients walk away with a renewed sense of confidence.

omahaboudoirphotographers, boudoir, photography, omaha, ne, shondy studios, sexy photos, intimate photography, bridal, gifts for grooms, omaha boudoir, omaha sexy photos, intimate,3. I don’t know how to pose. Your photographer at Shonda Studios will guide you through each and every pose. There is absolutely nothing you need to know. You don’t have to know how to “look sexy.”  You’re photographer will even sometimes make the pose themselves in order to show you how to do it. So, don’t spend days before your session practicing your best duck face. You don’t need to know how to do anything!

I don’t have anyone to give boudoir portraits to. You don’t need to have a partner in order to sign up for a boudoir session. The truth is, while they make an excellent gift for your lover, these portraits are an incredible gift that you can give yourself. You will walk away from this session with portraits that you will have the rest of your life, portraits that show and will remind you just how gorgeous you are. They will be a considerate source of strength for years to come.

I don’t have the money.  If your concern is the expense of lingerie, don’t worry. There are plenty of outfits that you can wear that aren’t necessarily lingerie pieces. Think outside of the box. You can always wear a white T-shirt and panties. You could wear a button up shirt and tie. You can also wear a jersey, etc.

If your concern is the price of the portraits, we have several different options for you. First of all, we take all forms of payments including credit cards and checks. We also have a payment plan. With our payment plan there is no minimum monthly payment. You pay what you want. You can go as slow or fast as you need to. We order your products when you’re done paying them off.

They say you’re never ready to have kids. You just have to do it. It’s the same with boudoir photography. I promise you you will love your portraits and be so glad that you were brave enough to book your first boudoir session.  When you’re ready to be empowered,  when you’re ready to fall in love with yourself, you are ready for your first boudoir shoot.

Let’s get it done! Call Shondy Studios at 402-968-1717 to learn more about our boudoir session process and/or to book your session.

Our First Boudoir Shoot In Our New Studio Space

Mrs. S was our first boudoir shoot in our new studio.  She really brought a great variety of outfits for her session, which always makes it fun!  As the photographer, I loved the mix of studio lights and natural lighting we utilized in her portfolio.  I had a lot of fun creating portraits for this gorgeous client, and can’t wait to create more in this studio space.

The very talented Melissa Hilt from Salon Ink did her hair & make-up.
