Frequently asked questions
What exactly is boudoir photography?
Great question! Boudoir photos usually involve a certain amount of undress and usually includes lingerie, intimate apparel, loungewear, or nothing at all! Sessions are meant to embrace and expose a women's sexuality and femininity as well as her badass qualities. My style is more lifestyle than standard posing (though I will help coach you with poses through the entire session- don't worry about that!) You'll see most of the images in your gallery are very relaxed natural, and don't forget- sexy!
What should I bring with me?
Bring as many sexy outfits as you want! My packages include professional wardrobe consulting and we can get in a variety of looks while you're with me. Bra and panty sets, bustiers, teddies, and lingerie sets are great starts. So are knee high socks and oversized sweaters! Whatever makes YOU feel the sexiest! ;) We typically shoot for 2 hours and we can usually fit in 2-3 outfits in that time. If you book a session and are at a loss at what to wear, I am more than happy to help you prep!
How do I book and pay for my session?
When you are ready to book a session with me I will send you an invoice with your non-refundable session fee + $900 for your product retainer. You will also be sent a boudoir contract that can be signed electronically. Once the session fees have been processed and contract signed, you're officially on the calendar! Yay! Payment is super easy as I accept Venmo, all major credit cards, and PayPal!
Products are ordered and delivered when all balances are paid in full. Need a payment plan? Just ask!!
What are the costs of products?
There is a breakdown of all the products I offer in the client session guide which is sent via email. The initial session fee of $400 includes hair and makeup, wardrobe consulting, location prep, the actual photoshoot, and editing as well as setting up for your Reveal Session (to name a few!). Samples of products are shown at your Reveal Session and are ordered during that time only. We collect a product retainer of $900 upon booking for you to use at your Reveal Session.
Most clients average $1700 - $3500 for sessions and custom products.
Select a custom designed photo album -OR- keepsake glass box with prints! Then peruse our add on options like metals, canvas, a Rebel reel, and digital files- to name a few!
Is there a discount if I don't want hair and makeup?
Sorry, chica! Hair styling and makeup (with lashes!) is complimentary with each session, so the price does not change if you opt out of that amazing service. Your boudoir session is about celebrating YOU so let yourself be pampered for the day!
Do I have to pick my products before my session?
Of course not! Some women know exactly what products they want before we shoot while others want to wait until their Reveal Session to choose!
*Product Orders are only submitted once payment is made in full.
*All payments for products and sessions are NON-REFUNDABLE.
I can't make my session! What's your reschedule policy?
We get it, life happens! If you can't make your session, please let us know AT LEAST 48 hours in advance! You are allowed ONE rescheduled session without a charge. Your second rescheduled session (and any after that) will result in an additional Reschedule Fee of $400.
Do you work for free or are you able to give me a discount?
Sorry about that, but all of our prices are set based on talent, education, and quality. We do have a couple mini session options throughout the year, though! Remember this is an INVESTMENT in YOU.
Payment plans (with ZERO % interest) are always an option; just ask if you would like to take advantage of that!
I need to rush my order. What do I do?
I edit images based on the first in, first out process. If, for some reason, you need your images edited faster than my normal turnaround time for Reveal Sessions, I can do so for an added charge of $400. This will put your images first in line and guarentees a turnarund of edits in one week.
If you have had your Reveal Session and need to RUSH delivery on ordered items, I would be happy to contact my printers and get that price for you!!
Do you offer payment plans?
ABSOLUTELY we do! We understand that a boudoir session is an investment in YOU and we want every woman to have this amazing and empowering experience!
0% (zero percent) interest payment plans are available to purchase sessions and products. Payment can be made via credit card, PayPal Credit, Venmo, cash, or personal checks only. (CashApp is not accepted.) 25% of the product order total is due at the reveal/ordering session and is NON-REFUNDABLE. ALL payment plans must be completed within 12 consecutive, monthly installments and are NON-REFUNDABLE. Missed payments will result in a $50 CHARGE for every 7 (seven) days late. After 3 (three) missed payments, session photos will be deleted, and purchase order will be terminated to end installment payments.
ALL PAYMENTS MADE PRIOR TO MISSED PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
How do I get to the studio?
Our address is 1206 MLK Jr DR SW Atlanta GA 30314
You can type in REBEL BOUDOIR in Google Maps or Waze and it will take you right to us!
What is provided in the session fee?
Your session fee of $400 covers a ton of stuff! First off, it secures your session date on my calendar. But here's a breakdown of what else the fee includes ::
your photoshoot - the reason why we are here!
wardrobe consulting - in case you need outfit advice. Email me links to outfits you like, text me photos while you're out shopping, or ask me for my go-to shops! I'm here to help!
light snacks and drinks - at every session I always provide fresh fruit and other lights snacks like crackers and hummus, and mini cupcakes or pastries for you to enjoy while you're here. The fridge is always stocked with light alcohol (mimosa, anyone?) as well as non-alcoholic drinks like lemonade, soda, and fruit juice! There is ALWAYS fresh coffee.
professional hair and makeup - you will be provided with full face glam WITH lashes as well as a slay-all-day hairstyle for your session! Go ahead and plan a date or girl's night after because you will be looking and feeling in.cred.i.ble!
access to the Rebel client closet - we have some awesome, unique pieces to add to your wardrobe selection for the day! Before we start shooting, you're more than welcome to take a look at some of the lingerie and body jewelry we have to incorpoate in your session! Though this is totally optional, feel free to take advantage of it! Our pieces complement sizes XS-XL and range from bra and panty sets to bodysuits to body chains.
reveal and ordering session - cause you wanna see the magic we made! This session is the time we sit down and actally get to view your gallery of lightly edited photos, select all your favorites, and order products! Typical reveals last 1-2 hours. But don't worry, there will be snacks (and sometimes happy tears!).
custom retouching - got bruises or blemishes? no problem! After your Reveal Session is over, I start fully editing your images! My normal editing process (after you select your favs for ordering!) is general skin smoothing, blemish removal, etc. Generally, anything that is permenant on your body (like tattoos) stay unless we have discussed having them removed in post usually prior to your session. (some extra fees apply)
Am I supposed to tip?
Tips are always appreciated, but never expected.
Can I bring a girlfriend to my session?
I TOTALLY get it! Getting skimpy in front of someone you don't know that well can be super intimidating. I prefer you come solo so I can give YOU my undivided attention, but if your nerves are an absolute wreck, feel free to bring your best gal with you for that extra encouragement! Guests are allowed to hang with us all through your hair and make-up application, sip mimosas, and treat themselves to snacks. HOWEVER once shooting starts, ya girl's gotta wait away from shooting areas.
They can chillax on the couch, take advantage of free high speed wi-fi, and a wide selection of streaming services (Youtube TV, Netflix, Peacock, Amazon Video, Disney+, Hulu and more!) I am also a history nerd, so all the books and magazines are for their reading pleasure. :)
I just want to buy the digital photos from my session. How much is that?
Digital photos can be purchased as an ADD-ON option at your Reveal Session only. They come on a beautiful, engraved glass USB drive inside a velvet pouch for safe-keeping.
Once you make selections for your leather photo album or heirloom glass box with prints, you're more than welcome to purchase the corresponding digitals shown at your Reveal Session or any other products we offer! Our digital ADD-ONS is a flat fee of $1000 and includes those edited images from your Reveal Session that you picked from your album or glass box. *Again, digital images are only available as an ADD-ON after the purchase of a leather photo album or glass box with prints.
If you are looking for a quick "shoot and burn" photographer, I'm not ya girl. At Rebel Boudoir, we pride ourselves on the highest quality printers that work specifically with the boudoir industry and unparalled customer service from the moment of inquiry to the delivery of custom products!
Can I book a weekend date?
Sure thing! We do have a Weekend Fee of $200 added on to your session invoice!
If you need a weekend date, just include that in your contact form
here to us so we can get you some dates to choose from!
*our weekends are auto blocked out on our boooking calendar so those will not be available to choose from*
At Rebel Boudoir, your privacy is of the utmost importance! Images from your session are automatically PRIVATE which means they are never posted on social media, used for promotion, products samples, submission to publication, etc. If you decide that sharing your photos is absolutely fine with you, a separate release contract will be sent to you that allows me to do just that. Contracts are specific to each client and can vary based on the comfort level of sharing. If a contract is not signed, the images remain private. Feel free to ask about my different levels of Photo Releases; I am more than happy to give you more information and show you examples!
*It is common practice that clients are never tagged in social media posts and names are never used unless that action has been requested specifically by the client. Such requests will also be stated in contract form.
What if I have tan lines?!
With warmer weather comes more time spent outdoors in the sun's harmful (yet glorious) rays. WE FEEL YOU! Those Spring and Summer days are calling for long hours hanging with friends, by the pool with a margarita, or a nice beach vaca to get us out of that winter slump.
Unless you sunbathe in the nude, tan lines are DEF something to consider when your boudoir session is coming up. Some babes rock their tan lines with pride (usually because their spouse thinks they're super sexy!) but others prefer an even tone all over, which is fine too! IF you have tan lines and they've gotta go before your session, I suggest visiting a professional tanning salon. (I recommend my favs in Atlanta when you book with me!)
You may need to invest in several visits to get your desired results depending on their recommendations and how drastic your lines are.
My best advice is :
1. Be aware of your outfit/swim suit choices while you're out in the sun and the resulting tan lines they will create.
2. Plan ahead with professional spray tanning if you
don't want your tan lines showing for your session.
3. Select lingerie that covers/matches your existing tan lines.
4. Always wear high SPF sunscreen (not just to prevent tan lines, but also to keep away burns and prevent skin cancer)!
**AVOID self tanning correction; in my experience, this usually doesn't turn out well.
