I get it .. It's fun .. It's truly exciting and one of the best parts about having professional photos taken is sharing them with friends and family. But ... But what about boudoir photos?
Obviously boudoir photography is different than if you were sharing your family portraits (which i do offer too ;-))!
As a photographer, I absolutely LOVE.. I mean, LOVE to share my sessions with you wonderful ladies or even with the world.. because remember, one of these ladies may have just inspired you to do the session yourself by seeing her photos... . It’s exciting to share our clients’ beautiful faces with the wider world.
But .. First of all. You matter as a person and are not just a "photo: or a "content post" to me.
Session after session, so many of the photos I deliver to my clients from their boudoir sessions just aren’t appropriate for your regular Facebook or Instagram feed. And if you book a boudoir session with me, you’re probably not planning on sharing them with all your friends and followers on social media. About 40% of the ladies that I photograph have kept their session completely secret and not posted at all, And I totally get that. Choosing to invest in a boudoir photography session is not about getting some lovely photos for your social media feed:: it’s about getting a set of photos that are mostly for you (and maybe for your partner, too). You probably won’t share your intimate photos with everyone you know and neither will I.
Your privacy matters!
Before our session I’ll make sure to talk with you about how comfortable you feel about me sharing your photos online. Are there some photos you’d be ok with me sharing? Because, of course, I want to show everyone how confidently sexy you really are. But more importantly, I want you to know that I only share the photos that you’ve given me permission to share. Some people feel comfortable sharing more of themselves online and others people are more hesitant. Not only is that ok, it’s great–our differences are what make us amazing! We have a release that gives you 7 .. yes 7 different ways you can or cannot share your images... So.. please , you can rest assured that I will never share more than you want me to on my social media channels. But if you’re feeling daring and want to share your own photos? I say, go for it, girl!
