A gift for him? A gift for her? A gift for yourself. All reasons to schedule your empowering boudoir shoot.
Whether you are looking for a steamy gift for your partner or for a special treat for yourself, look no further than a boudoir or pin up session from Henry Roy Photography! Sessions are relaxed, laid back and tailored to your preferences. Some ladies choose to wear a sexy business outfit while others give the illusion of baring it all. The choice is yours! Sessions are most commonly held at my studio located in Rapid City, South Dakota. You may choose to have your session elsewhere, such as a hotel/bed & breakfast or even the great outdoors! Roughly two weeks after your session you’ll be asked to come back into the studio to view a slideshow, go through your proofs and decide what you’d like to order. The options are endless but the most common products are albums and/or a disk of images.
Wardrobe and outfits are not provided due to size variations and hygiene. Your outfits should reflect the way you’d like your images to show your body. Many clients are not comfortable with one part or another of themselves and along with posing, your outfits can hide some of those things. A quick Google search for boudoir outfits, lingerie, curvy gal lingerie, etc will yield a lot of great flattering ideas.
Clients are encouraged to schedule professional hair and makeup appointments as it will show in your portraits and you’ll feel that much more sexy!
This section is a work in progress but you should know two things about your couples boudoir session:
1. There’s a lot of kissing and touching. A lot.
2. This is NOT porn.
The biggest question most people have is what will the guy wear? Well, the answer is easy: Jeans. The guy will wear jeans and nothing more. As for you ladies, you can have up to two outfits for this session and we’ll usually end up using your man as one of your outfits. Expect a little more nudity with this session. Discuss this session with your significant other before booking! Same sex couples are welcome.
Whether you’re looking to start or expand your portfolio or just interested in modeling for us, our studio is the areas most experienced in boudoir and risqué portraits. Flattering angles and lighting are essential for everyone, and we’ve got you “covered.”
Very professional, and really the best at what he does 🙂
WOW just had my session, what a great time. I cant wait to see how they turn out! Very professional. Session was very easy going and very laid back. Cant wait for my husband to see them too!
Best professional photographer ever! Very wonderful at what he does.
I love love love my photos! ♡ Thank you!
I absolutely loved my session! I felt so comfortable and had so much fun. It really made me feel beautiful and I can't wait to go back!
I had the most amazing experience today!! Henry and Hayley are great and work so well together! I am amazed at how comfortable I felt while doing these photos! I would HIGHLY recommend every women to do this!! Can't wait to see all the photos!
Of course, it's difficult to be comfortable when you're only half dressed, but the professional atmosphere put me at ease immediately. After a few poses, I stopped wondering how I looked and just felt beautiful! A friend and I went for a joint session and it was so much fun! It was an amazing confidence boost and I recommend it to anyone 🙂
I highly recommend booking a session. Everything was handled professionally. Cannot wait to see my photos!
I had my doubts, being a curvy woman and seeing all the pictures of the fit ladies knowing full well my size 14/16, 2 kids and 30 something self was not going to look like that...i was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I was and how professional he is....nervousness out the door! I felt so beautiful and confident after my photo session and my photos are awesome! My husband was so surprised and he loved them too! Thank you, thank you for reminding me that I can be sexy without being a size 6!
Lingerie for your body type
His clothes or something “about him.”
If you don’t like something about your body it can often be covered with the right outfit.
Feel free to bring props to incorporate in your session. Jewelry is important as well. Firearms are allowed as long as they are unloaded, checked and double checked.
YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. WE HAVE ANSWERS.
Is the photographer male or female? We have both available!
Hair and makeup. We highly recommend getting your hair and makeup done professionally…just remember dark make up has a limit. Keep your eyes bright! With a little heads up prior to your session we can arrange professional makeup in studio at an extra charge. We also recommend several local salons that do a fantastic job with boudoir!!
What to bring: As for your wardrobe, keep it fun but CLASSY. We strive to take the classiest boudoir pictures possible for our clients. We usually go through 2-3 outfit changes. We leave your favorite choice to go second so that way you can get a feel for the camera and kick your nerves with the first outfit! You should really try to coordinate your outfits. Matching tops and bottoms is greatly encouraged. Most girls are not sure whether to wear heels or not. This is a personal preference to each girl of course but we say BRING THEM! (just in case!)
How nude can you go? Let’s be blunt, we don’t shoot vagina. Sometimes it’s more about what you don’t show!! There are ways to be completely nude and not show a single bit of nudity. We have many poses to make a great teaser photo. Remember this is Boudoir and by definition it is a variation of candid and posed photographs of a person partially clothed or in lingerie. “Nudity is more often implied than explicit.”
Who to bring: We allow a friend to accompany you for moral support but we do not allow any children in the studio during a session. We encourage you to leave your significant other at home unless they are part of the shoot. If your male companion is part of the shoot we ensure the boundaries of the session are kept by requiring him to leave his pants or boxers on at all times.
So, how much is it? For an in studio 1 hour session we charge $75. This covers our time to photograph you and edit your photos. You are under no obligation to purchase anything and if you love your photos we have prints, albums and digital USB options.
How much should I budget for after the session? The average person spends between $350 and $650 on the final product. We have albums/proof books starting at 5×5 on up to 10×15 in size. You can choose to simply purchase prints starting at $30 or a USB of the digital images all edited with a print release starts at $350 (normally $499). A payment plan is also available if you aren’t in a hurry!
Will my images be kept private? Yes. You can choose to let us share your images in our advertisements or to keep them completely private.
Can I just look at my pictures in an online gallery or do I have to come back in to order? If you choose to pre-purchase the digital rights to the photos (starting at $350) we will put them in a private password protected gallery for you. Using this gallery you can decide if you’d like to add an album or make any additional purchases with your photos.
