Things to know.
A guide on what to expect.
1. It's OKAY to be Nervous.
Its ok to be nervous. In fact, I think it's the perfect place to be! Nervousness mean you are outside your comfort zone. Do you know exactly where all the fun stuff happens in life? You got it – outside your comfort zone!! That’s where growth, adventure and self discovery thrive. Embrace your nervousness, I promise they won’t last long in our location
2. No Judgement here.
We at d20photography are not judging (or even really looking) at your body. I know that sounds crazy, but it's true. As photographers – that is NOT our job. Our job is to rock posing, lighting, and capturing emotion. So yes although we truly do SEE you, and NO, we aren’t picking you apart. We are actually always striving to photograph the best of you and reflect all that beauty and love back to you in amazing portraiture.
3. You don't have to Lose 5 Pounds.
You don’t have to lose 5 pounds or even 10 pounds to book a shoot. Here’s a tip girls - we will do all the posing for you. we will always make you look as good as you look in real life, if not better! Oh and by the way… your period isn’t an excuse to cancel a shoot – a little bloat doesn’t really show on camera. And besides, who doesn't need a little pick me up on period week anyway.
4. Photoshop is NOT a magic wand.
No, d20photography can’t just photoshop that out. Well, David does have some magical Photoshop skills and ok yes, there are somethings we can photoshop out – like that little tattoo you got one drunk night when you were 19. Maybe that can easily be removed it's the tiny secret tattoo kind, but if it covers your whole back, maybe not. If your curious one what we will photoshop out just ask!
5. I can't guarantee comfort, but I can guarantee amazing portraits.
Trust me, the more it hurts the better it looks. A lot of photographers bill a boudoir photo shoot as a fun and super sexy day in which you will be pampered. It sounds almost like a spa day. I am here to tell you that even though you WILL feel amazing, it is a lot of work in the studio. David and Laura are going to pose you and make you wear uncomfortable shoes and underwear - . Your back will be sore, you might have blisters on your feet… but trust me when I tell you it’s worth it. Every bit. Even though it might feel weird, trust me, when we pose you. Our expertise is what you are paying for! We will pose you right down to your fingertips to ensure that you have the best portraits. You will love the way you look in front of our camera.
6. Who's this shoot for anyway?
Even though you come into our Colorado home saying “it’s for him”, it’s also for YOU. Most women book boudoir shoots as a gift for someone else. The truth is, the boudoir portrait experience is all for you! The amazing portraits are the souvenir. Embrace the experience. Embrace all the feelings that come along with it. Look back at the delicious photos we create for you and remember how incredible you felt that day. You deserve this gift too. Maybe even more.
7. Size and Age are just numbers.
Size or age doesn’t matter to us in the least. We do not care if you are a size 3 or a size 33. 24 years old or 86 years old. For this photoshoot, all we want is for all women to celebrate their unique beauty confidently. That truly means ALL women. Don’t put boundaries on yourself just because you “think” it’s not for you or you don't personally know anyone who has been in front of David's camera. That is just your mind playing tricks on you. You are going to LOVE your session with us
8. David and Laura are going to Rock you.
Be prepared, this boudoir session could be a life changer. You think you are booking a regular boudoir photo shoot for fun or for a gift. And you are - However, there is a seriously incredible side effect to this experience. Often women we photograph will realize their potential. They will see their secret powers. They will feel their true worth in every molecule of their body. They will get in touch with feelings they repressed or even forgot about a long time ago. These feelings open up their minds and their worlds. It gives them power to come ALIVE. The permission to go after what they want in life. To get out of bad relationships, to apply for that new jobs, to travel, to fall in love… The possibilities are endless. This is not just a boudoir photo shoot. It’s a life experience.
