Frequently Asked Questions
What do I bring to the shoot?
You will be asked to bring a few specific pieces based on what we discuss in your phone consultation.
Do you offer Wardrobe?
We provide the latest designer lingerie and GORGEOUS high-end accessories and accent pieces to complete your look in sizes XS-L. We’ve even added dress and heels to our latest collections for glamour looks that can be shared with friends and family. All lingerie is worn with your own thong and liners and washed between shoots. All you need to bring is a few basic pieces. We will discuss all of this with you before your shoot. Look up our Instagram page for the highlight “TRUNK” to see some of the things in our wardrobe collection. IG Caroline Malouf Photography.”
Do I need to get my nails done for the shoot?
Professional mani/pedi always looks best; but we are totally fine with clean neutral nails for both hands and feet.
I’m not young or skinny like most the women on your website, is this even right for me?
ABSOLUTELY!!!! We photograph ALL shapes, sizes, ages and ethnicity. In fact 90% of our clients are non-models that want beautiful images either for themselves or for someone special. We welcome you with open arms and we’ll do everything to make you comfortable and give you beautiful images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
Will you help with posing?
Absolutely! We love this part. We have so many poses for different body shapes and sizes. Some subtle and some totally sexy. You’ll become so comfortable that you’ll be adding your own body language that will make each photo unique to your personality. We promise you don’t have to worry about this at all.
I don’t know what I would do with my expression?
We’ll work with you on that, too. Great poses are not complete unless your face is relaxed and depicts sensuality. You will be directed throughout the whole shoot to get the perfect expression to complete each pose.
How private is the shoot? Who is going to watch me?
Your shoot is very private. After your hair and makeup is done, the stylist leaves the studio. Only Caroline and her trusted female assistant will be with you during the shoot.
Will you use my photos on your website or Social Media?
Never! We consider all images private so they will not be used on our website or social media, unless you offer to give us a written consent to use them.
Do you own all the backdrops/furniture/sets that you show on your website?
Yes, 99% of what you see is in our studio and is available to you during your photoshoot.
Will there be any men around during the shoot?
Nope, ladies only:)
How do I know I’ll love the hair and makeup?
Good question, our hair and makeup process is very much
interactive…. that way there are no surprises and you’ll love the outcome. It’s a discussion between you, the hair/ makeup artist and Caroline.
Can I bring a friend to the shoot?
Trust us, you won’t be comfortable with them around. Boudoir is a very intimate experience and your expression will never be what it needs to be because you’ll feel self conscious about being “watched”, so we’d rather you didn’t bring anyone.
What is the turnaround time for my photos?
About 1 week for purchased retouched digitals and 3 weeks for albums and prints. Rush orders are available for an additional fee.
How far in advance do you book?
About 4 months, but we end up with little openings here and there to schedule you in so don’t hesitate to call and ask.
