If a client is uncomfortable during a boudoir session, it’s very tough to capture the perfect images. Add to that, as this shoot is very personal in nature, it’s very much required that the client feels unworried with the photographer and his team. This is supposed to be an enjoyable experience rather than a nerve-wracking one. Here, we are explaining how we achieve that on our shoots –
We always keep some extra time for these kinds of shoots. Even though time is money in our profession, we never rush through a boudoir shoot. Unlike other fashion shoots that can be finished in 2-3 hours, we never put the same time constraint for our boudoir sessions. None of our shoots is for less than 4 hours because we give our clients enough time to feel comfortable with us. In most case, clients take at least half an hour to get used to the camera and we are okay with that as we know most of them are facing cameras for the first time.
Authority of Pictures lies with Clients
In these shoots, we generally give the authority for the shoot pictures to the clients. Only if they give permission to us to publish, we use these on our website and other platforms, otherwise, we never use even though the business of a photographer is based on showing his pictures (Alas!). As the contentment of our clients is of utmost importance to us. In case, you think there are not enough pictures in our boudoir gallery, you know the reason. 🙂
Deletion of Pictures
Once the shoot is over and the pictures are handed over to the client, we let our clients decide whether they want us to keep their pictures or not. If they want, we don’t mind even deleting everything from our side.
We always book a good studio for this shoot, so that not to add to the nervousness of our client. A place that is at a safe location and gives positive vibes.
Only Photography Team Allowed
We allow only people who are working on this shoot to be present at the time of the shoot and no one else. It might involve a stylist, a makeup artist, a photographer (of course!), a creative director and maybe an assistant.
Clients can Bring Friend or Partner
If having your best friend or your husband by your side makes you feel more comfortable and secure, you are allowed to do that.
Professional and Experienced Team
We are the first ones who started these types of shoots in India, so we have been doing it for quite some time now. None of our clients ever faced any uncomfortable moment with us. Our team is very helpful in making you feel relaxed with their easy-going conversations.
Being Sensitive with Client’s Need
We are very much sensitive to what our clients want from this shoot. If you are not comfortable wearing a particular cloth or posing in a particular manner, we can always find some other options to replace that as this shoot is about you and only you!
Encouraged to Ask Any Questions!
We encourage our clients to ask as many questions as they can, even if they think it’s stupid as we are here to put at ease their anxious minds. We run a blog to provide as much information as we can about boudoir shoots in India. In case you are still not able to find what you are looking for there, we are here to answer all your queries.
