Frequently Asked Questions
What is the boudoir/beauty session?
My idea of a boudoir-beauty session are timeless photographs that reflect YOU. I want you to stay true to yourself, be confident and have fun! I hope you look at these photos and see the elegant, graceful, exquisite individual that you are. I will treat you like an old friend and will use these photos to show you the beauty I see inside of you!
Does Dana Zarin Studios provide wardrobe for the boudoir sessions?
No, we do not provide outfits on the day of your shoot. You should bring a variety of outfits that make you feel beautiful and most importantly ones you are comfortable in.
What should I wear?
The answer is simple- whatever makes you feel beautiful and confident! These photos will be CLASSY and this session is all about highlighting and showing your natural beauty. You can show as little or as much skin as you are comfortable with! Some ideas to help you narrow down your choices include lacy outfits, bra/panties sets, silky robes, your significant others favorite shirt, sports jersey, oversized sweaters, etc. If it makes you feel stunning and beautiful, your pictures will reflect the same. Feel free to browse my photo gallery to see what others have worn in past sessions! *you must be clothed or covered at all times during this session*
How many outfits should I bring?
Great question, you can bring as many or as few outfits as you choose for your one hour photography session. We usually recommend bringing anywhere from two to four outfits, in order for you to have a variety of “looks” to choose from later on.
How long is the session and what will the schedule look like the day of my session?
You will arrive at our private studio for your scheduled time. You will first sit down with the amazing Jessica Spina-Perez, with Your Day Your Way “Traveling Hair and Make-Up Artistry” and have your hair and make up completed. While your hair and make-up is being done you will be served complementary drinks and snacks. Glam time will take approximately 1 hour. Immediately following hair and make-up, your one hour photography session will take place with Dana in her private studio room. You can plan on being at the studio for a total of 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
What does hair and makeup include?
Your glam time with Jess will make you feel your best! Imagine a healthy glow to your skin and extra volume to your hair. Package includes - hair: the choice of a straight style or soft sexy curls and standard make-up with lashes included. For examples of these looks, check out our boudoir gallery. Don’t forget to make sure you schedule a night out on the town after your portrait session. You’ll look and feel amazing!!
When do you expect payment?
A deposit of $100 is due at booking. Your session will not be locked in until deposit is received! The remaining balance is due on the day of the session. Cash or check is accepted. All checks should be made payable to Dana Zarin Studios LLC.
Where will the session be located?
These sessions will be located in my private studio. Hair and make-up will take place the hour before your session at the same location. Once your contract and deposit are received, you will be sent a confirmation email that will include the address of your session.
What do I need to bring with me the day of the session?
Outfits for photography session
Button-up or zip up shirt to have hair and make-up done in
Cover-up/robe for changing between outfits
Props for photos - anything sentimental or important you would like to incorporate into your pictures. Some suggestions include:
If you are a bride planning on gifting to your future hubby, bring your veil!
If your significant other is in the service or 1st responder, you can bring dog tags, badge, uniform shirt, uniform hat etc
If you have a specific idea for your session or something important your would like to incorporate for yourself or significant other please let me know prior to your session so we can discuss ideas for incorporation! I love unique ideas, but it’s helpful to me to know ahead of time so I can be prepared for what you have in mind!
Your privacy is important to us! Your photos are 100% private, we will never use your images in any marketing material without first having your written permission. If you choose to have your images shared, you will need to first sign a photo/model release. These photos are for you, and we will respect your privacy wishes.
What will the style of the boudoir session be?
My vision for this boudoir session is classy, natural and feminine. This session is all about highlighting your natural beauty and capturing just how beautiful you are. My style of shooting uses natural lights, which keeps your photos bright and naturally colored.
I’m nervous, can I bring a friend with me?
Everyone gets nervous, you are not the only one! We do not recommend anyone coming with you to your session as they can cause a distraction and will not be allowed in the studio room with us. We need to limit as many distractions as possible to get you in the zone and capture your natural beauty. We find best results come when we can really connect with you to guide and direct you through this experience.
Can you photoshop me?
This experience is meant to make you feel like the goddess you are. You are going to be amazed at just how drop dead gorgeous you are once you see these photographs. With that being said I do use an editing software to apply some slight color adjustments to my images, whether to brighten the photo or minimize imperfections. I do not photoshop as this whole experience is celebrating you and your body, capturing your natural beauty because you are exquisite! You don’t need photoshop!!
How will I receive my photos?
Digital galleries will be delivered through a password protected gallery straight to the e-mail provided.
Albums will be designed by myself, and sent to you for your approval before ordering. Albums can either be mailed to you or be picked up at the studio once they are in to make sure no unwanted eyes see before they are meant to.
How long will it be until I receive my digital prints or albums.
All galleries will be delivered in approximately 3 weeks after your session date.
