YOU’VE GOT QUESTIONS.
We’ve got answers.
I HAVE NEVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE AND HAVE NO MODELING EXPERIENCE. CAN YOU HELP ME KNOW WHAT TO DO IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?
Rest easy. We do not know very many people who have experience letting strangers take photos of them in their unmentionables! It is perfectly normal to be nervous and worried that you will not know exactly what to do in front of the camera. This is where Three Boudoir shines.
All of our staff has been trained by Joanna, a former Playboy model, on how to direct you through your shoot. We will talk you through every move, literally everything from the expression on your face to the way your feet are angled. Our photographers have an amazing eye and understand the technical things like making sure you have incredible lighting, the surroundings are flattering, and the picture is snapped at the exact moment to capture you at your best.
HOW DO YOU ENSURE PRIVACY?
Your photos are uploaded to an online gallery that is password protected. We use a professional print shop for any images, albums, etc. you order.
We never use photos for marketing or any other reason without your explicit written permission.
When you work with us you tell us how we can use your images, if at all. A lot of our amazing ladies want their photos to be kept private and we completely respect that. If you don’t feel that way, you will likely see your friendly face looking back at you in our online gallery.
DO YOU HAVE SOMEONE TO DO MY HAIR AND MAKEUP?
We recommend that you have your makeup professionally done prior to your shoot. It will give you an extra confidence boost and help ensure our studio lights, or natural light, do not wash you out. It is the best thing you can do to have a rockin’ hot shoot.
We offer makeup services at all of our studios prior to your appointment. You will have the option to select this service once you have booked your shoot with us. Our onsite makeup artist charges $99 and false lashes are included. You will spend an hour with her prior to your shoot. We do not offer hair services but don’t worry! We arm you with all the info you need to prep and plan prior to your shoot with our Down & Dirty and Shopping for your Shoot guides.
DO YOU WORK WITH MEN OR COUPLES?
We are an all female company specalizing in woman’s boudoir. At this time we work with women only. We only do individual shoots, no couples.
Do you have any deals?
You betcha! You can always see our current specials and deals on our deal details page. Also, we offer savings if you place your order immediately following your shoot. We have sales throughout the year as well to help you have more of your images in your hands.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND TO MY SHOOT?
Absolutely! We love meeting friends and family. However, our studio spaces are small so we ask that if you want to bring a friend that you limited it to one person. We often do not have space to accommodate more than that. We have also found that more than one friend can be a distraction for you and from the Three Boudoir experience. Please note, we do not allow men in our studio, women only.
SPEAKING OF FRIENDS, I WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS WITH A GROUP OF GIRLFRIENDS. DO YOU OFFER ANY SPECIAL PRICING OR PACKAGES FOR GROUPS?
Do we ever! We have a fantastic Girlfriends Get Together Party that we offer for groups, and with six or more girlfriends included, the hostess shoot is free! For more details please contact us via our book now page.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO? WILL YOU COME TO MY HOUSE? IS A HOTEL ROOM AN OPTION?
We currently have 4 locations where you can book your shoot: Odenton MD, Dupont Circle Washington DC, Chicago IL, and Manhattan NY. Our studio locations rotate from month to month. We often book swanky hotels or sexy studio spaces. You can see where we are currently shooting by visiting our shoot location page. We update it monthly with our shoot locations by city.
We prefer to shoot in our locations but if you have a special request please let us know. We are able to travel and like the change of scenery from time to time.
I AM NERVOUS! CAN WE MEET BEFORE HAND OR DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE OR TIPS TO HELP COMBAT THESE JITTERS?
First of all, recognize the fact that even considering a Three Boudoir session takes some courage! Give yourself a big pat on the back for making it to the frequently asked question page. You are braver than you think! Yep, we can meet before hand. Believe it or not, there are not many people who walk into a shoot relaxed and ready. Everyone has nerves and we expect the first few minutes of the shoot to be a little stiff. In fact, we plan for it.
If there is anything we can do to help ease those nerves, be it an in person meeting, a Google Hangout or a Skype date, we are all for it. Also, once you have booked your appointment with us we will send your our Down and Dirty Guide with everything you need to prepare for your shoot including some insider modeling secrets from Joanna, a former Playboy model!
I NEED THESE FOR A SPECIFIC DATE, HOW FAR OUT SHOULD I BOOK?
Your online gallery is available 2 weeks after your shoot. In your online gallery will be 2 edited images from you shoot that you are able to download right away. It will also have 50+ images from our time together. Once you have your online gallery it is up to you select the images for your final products, be it a USB of edited images, a beautifully designed album, or gorgeous prints to hang on your wall.
Once you have selected your favorite images from your gallery for your final product it is a 2-9 week process for product delivery. Why such a big time frame? Digital images are delivered as soon as they are edited while albums take additional time to edit, design, be proofed by you, printed by our professional print shop, and delivered to you.
Have a wedding, anniversary or other celebration where you need your images faster? We offer rush processing, this moves you to the top of the editing and design queue, cutting wait time in half.
DO YOU RETOUCH THE PHOTOS? HOW MUCH EDITING DO YOU DO?
We edited all photos that are selected for purchase. We can do as much or as little editing as you would like. We all have areas that we want to diminish and areas that we want to play up. We know how to pose you just so & touch up in post processing so that you look like the BEST you. We follow your lead on that one, as much or as little editing as you would like.
DO YOU DO FULL NUDITY?
You wear as much or as little as you would like. It is not required that you come into your shoot knowing exactly where your comfort levels are or how much you want to expose. We are flexible and will work with you to capture a variety of images during your shoot in each outfit you bring. We will never pressure you or ask you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable.
Many of our models decide that, yes, this is a once in a life time photo shoot, I would like to expose a little more. Others may decide to do a white sheet sessions which alludes to nudity. It is entirely up to you and your comfort levels.
DO YOU HAVE CLOTHING, JEWELRY, ETC FOR ME TO WEAR?
We do not provide clothing, jewelry, props, etc. Please bring these items along with you.
Need ideas? When you book you will have access to our Down and Dirty Guide with all the tips ands tricks you need from a Playboy model to help you prepare for your shoot. To get a jump start, consider the interest of the person that these will be a gift for. Does your special fan have a favorite sports team, an interesting hobby, or serve in a branch of our military? If so, you might want to bring your own sports jersey, military themed outfit, or something else that would be personal to them. If this is a gift for your spouse or groom, it is a particularly wonderful to bring your veil, wedding shoes, or something else specific to your wedding that will help tie these sexy photos to that very special day.
