WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?
Our studio is in a really cool building in Somerville called Signet Commandery built in 1895. We are on the 4th floor… But even the steps are beautiful.
343 Medford Street
Secret Clubhouse 4a
Somerville MA 02150
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Simply click the big, burgundy “LET’S DO THIS THING” button below to get started.
WHAT IS YOUR RESCHEDULING POLICY?
We require 48 hours to reschedule a shoot. You can call us and we’ll cancel your appointment and then you simply go back online and make a new one. If you cancel without 48 hours notice there will be a $25 rescheduling fee. This is because that time will be blocked out and we will be standing there missing you, probably just taking pictures of each other.
WHY IS THERE A SHOOTING SESSION AND A VIEWING SESSION?
The shooting session is where you come to our cool studio and look sultry in front of our camera. Then, as soon as the very same day, we have you come back and we shine our favorite images on a movie screen. We talk about why we like the ones we picked and we help you choose prints, albums, etc.
Plus we get to hang out with you more than once 🙂
I'M NOT A SUPER MODEL AND I'M UNCOMFORTABLE HAVING MY PICTURE TAKEN. I'VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE. WILL I SURVIVE?
Probably. We won’t pressure you to do anything you are uncomfortable doing. We are super professional, respectful, and we know how to make all different body types look great. Sara has modeled boudoir herself and knows exactly how you feel. She’ll help guide you through. Trust us. The awkwardness wears off quickly and soon you are having a blast. It’s fun… Really!Sara wrote a POST about what it’s like to have us photograph your boudoir session.
I AM A SUPERMODEL AND I ALWAYS LOOK AWESOME. I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION. I JUST WANTED TO PUT THAT OUT THERE.
DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?
We do not provide hair and makeup services because we want you to look like you. Makeup should be pushed just a small step or two beyond how you normally wear it. If you aren’t comfortable doing your own, many salons and premium makeup counters offer these services. You should find someone you connect with. But seriously, you don’t have to glam it up. Just be you.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? DO YOU SUPPLY CLOTHING?
We do not have lots of clothing options here beyond a few sheer robes and a shirt or two. We do have veils for our brides out there. Here is a page about what to bring to the session that should help:
ARE YOU GUYS OK WITH NUDITY, IF I CHOOSE?
We are great with shooting artistic nudes and provide a really safe, comfortable environment.
WILL OTHER PEOPLE SEE MY PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE OR FACEBOOK?
We maintain copyright to all our images but will not use any image without your consent. We won’t post anything anywhere without your written permission.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND SO I'LL FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE?
Absolutely. We are nice to everybody.
WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OUT MY WRINKLES AND SCARS, MAKE ME 10 YEARS YOUNGER, AND 20% HAPPIER?
We don’t want you to look like a super fake version of yourself from a planet that has no gravity and is free from the constraints of time. But we do a little correcting- we’ll hide some flaws and bumps and bulges but we really want you to look like you- the best you. And we do most of that with posing. Sara keeps a watchful eye to make sure you are always looking your best during the shoot.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE IMAGES FROM THE SESSION?
All your images will be presented to you at the viewing session where you will place orders for goodies. Prints and albums are ready within four weeks of the viewing session. Digital images are ready immediately after the viewing session.
