Frequently Asked Questions 

Ask me anything!!

I promise I don’t bite <3


+ How do I book a boudoir session with you? First, all you need to do is send me a message! You can contact me by email - katie.michellephoto@gmail.com , Facebook, or IG @katie.michelleboudoir. This is where we will go over details, session fees, dates available, ect. I also suggest checking out my Boudoir Pricing guide here - this will really help break down the investment, products offered, and what to expect in terms of payment and ordering options.


+ Do you travel?

Yes! I will travel, please just let me know as this will take a little bit more planning, the costs will differ as this is a more custom experience - Likely I will rent our an Airbnb, flight costs, and rental cars depending on where. - If this is something you are interested I highly suggest asking about a group session where you can make it more of a weekend girls photo session. OR you can come to me and also plan a girl's weekend boudoir trip to Milwaukee, WI and we shoot in studio.


+ How far in advance should have my session?

I recommend at least 4 weeks in advance, if you plan on doing a payment plan please plan an extra few weeks in order to get all your payments in before product delivery. - This ensures that 1. You will have paid your session fee in advance , 2. Time for editing and set up your viewing and ordering session, 3. Product delivery will be on time for your plans - This can all be discussed over the phone or in-person during your pre-consultation


+ Is the Session Fee applied to my order?

No, the session fee is not includedand is completely separate from your order. Please see my pricing guide in the link above for a breakdown. The session fee DOES however cover your session time, hair and makeup (per specific session fees), access to my client closet, ordering and viewing appointment, editing, product delivery/custom design, and packaging.


+ If I do my own hair and makeup is there a discount? You can absolutely do your own hair and makeup - but since this is complementary in my other sessions no discounts are available. However, most clients choose to have these services included. Hair and makeup are done by my professional stylists and trust me… they do phenomenal work, leaving you feeling pampered and relaxed by the end of it.


+ Do you sell digital files?

Yes, digital packages are available - there is a breakdown in my pricing guide


What is the turn around time for products/delivery? Generally allow a month for your orders to come through, this includes the editing process, ordering & viewing session & delivery time - Be mindful of when you order in case you are wanting your images and products delivered in time for special occasions.


Can I bring a friend? You can, but I suggest coming alone as this way you are not concerned with anyone else in the room beside you, myself, and my stylist for a brief moment. Depending on your comfort level is how you should decide, I will say though having 1 on 1 time really helps bring YOU out in your session. As I said though, please if you feel uncomfortable coming alone you may absolutely bring a friend or SO with you for support <3


+  What if I start my period before my session? That's totally fine and a really common concern that clients have. I do not reschedule for periods. As long as you are comfortable wearing a tampon we are good to go. If you have other concerns regarding your cycle, just let me know and we can certainly work around it! 


+ Does everyone get naked? Nope, not everyone does. When you book your session I send out a questionnaire to get to know you a little better, what your expectations are, comfort level, and what inspired you to book a session.


+ I don’t know how to pose!? Help!? Trust me... I got you! I have a number of poses and directions during your session so I capture all of your gorgeous assets. You never have to worry about posing. Also If there are areas you are not as comfortable with exposing this can be addressed in the questionnaire I send out as well.


What do I wear? This is a good question! This is also part of my questionnaire but here’s a little breakdown. Some gals wear teddy’s/one-piece outfits, sexy loose shirt, cheeky underwear, garters/stockings, spouses' clothes, ect… I also have a client closet that ranges in sizes and styles that I frequently add new pieces to. So this is constantly updated. I also wrote a blog on my favorite places to shop for lingerie which you can find here. And one last thing, this is also something will we discuss so you can bring your boudoir vision come to life.


What is your scheduling/cancellation policy? You are allowed ONE complimentary rescheduling date. I understand things come up/happen where you need to move your original date. If you need to reschedule for a second time you'll just need to pay another full booking fee to choose a new date on the calendar. You can refer to your contract regarding this matter once you book in. 


+ Do I have to share my images online?

ABSOLUTELY NOT. I never make you do something you're not comfortable with! There are plenty of ladies who have had a session with me and you'll never see one photo. This is a choice that you all make after your session is complete. You have 3 choices on how your images are shared, if at all.  All you need to do is ask about my model release and how it works!
