We have some props but not wardrobes. Let's dive in.
Wardrobes and gowns. We are not a big or heavy-traffic studio that can afford to have wardrobe sets at hand. The main reason, though, is that we want each of our clients to look unique and wear something that fits her true personality, matches her style, and compliments her shape just perfectly, and not from the limited options those studios give. You may like their color but not the size, their style but not the material... Why settle?
We suggest a better alternative: short of hiring a dedicated and professionally trained wardrobe stylist (we have them for a separate fee), we recommend renting your perfect maternity dress, cosplay costume, Victorian gown, burlesque ensemble, pinup outfit, etc. Here are just some online stores that rent wardrobes for photoshoots:
- Rent the Runway
- Style Lend
- Glam Corner
- Le Tote
- The Volte
- The Wardrobe Curator
- Lending Luxury
- HURR Collective
- Designer Wardrobe
- Chic by Choice
- Gwynnie Bee
You only pay a fraction of the retail price, often get free shipping, and—most importantly—have virtually unlimited style choices and endless combinations of colors and sizes! Be you!
Accessories and props. Following a similar philosophy, we carry very few of these but can offer some basics. For example, we:
You are still advised to arrange for the accessories and props that complement your character and theme, even with our offering! For example, besides our newborn set, how sweet it would be to prepare your baby's onesies, tiny knitted shoes, the toys she'll be playing with, or a book you'll read to him.
We are happy to brainstorm with you during the post-booking preparations! As such, we put together a massive guide on what to wear and prepare for a boudoir session. It is packed with ideas!
Do you have a studio we can use?
We have two studio locations, one in Manhattan and another in Poconos (Dingmans Ferry, PA). Unfortunately, the former is temporarily limited to office use and unsuitable for photo shoots, but the Poconos location is fully operational if you're local ...
Do you have a pool? Where is it located? Is there a rental fee? What if I have mine?
We do not own a pool, but we have something better for you: We have access to a network of pools across NY, NJ, PA, and CT. Whenever you are, we'll find an available pool nearest to you! If you're in NJ, there is no need to travel to Long Island, and ...
Are makeup and hair styling included in your packages? Can you recommend anyone?
No, makeup and hair styling are usually not included. We only occasionally run promotions to have them, like some of our boudoir specials. Kindly make arrangements with your preferred vendors. We are also happy to refer you to some of the artists we ...
Can I see a full event/wedding from start to finish?
Of course you may and should! We obviously only post our best shots to our wedding blogs and event portfolio but we want you to see how well we perform throughout the event, including traditional family portraits and other "normal" shots. We'll be ...
I put together a Pinterest board for the shoot, can we do something like this?
Such boards, as well as any collections you send us, are very helpful in one regard—helping us determine your expectations and dreams. For boudoir sessions, they are useful in determining the boundaries of your comfort level. For engagement sessions ...
