Frequently Asked Questions
Are any photos included in the session fee?
No. You will purchase the images you love about 2 weeks after your photo shoot when you come in for your personalized ordering appointment. You will see all of the custom products and digital options to choose from then.
Where does the photo shoot take place?
All boudoir sessions happen at our studio in Campbell, CA. We have a variety of backdrops, painted walls, hardwood floors, and furniture options to create a wide variety of beautiful photos.
How long does the session last?
We block off 4 hours but most sessions take 3-3.5 hours. This includes hair and makeup styling plus the photo shoot. The ordering appointment that happens 2 weeks after your photo shoot usually lasts about 1.5 hours.
Do you offer payment plans?
I do! Most clients choose to prepay for their prints and products before their photo shoot. The more you pre-pay, the lower your session fee will be. We can also split your purchase into monthly payments after your ordering appointment. You will receive your order after the balance is paid in full.
Do you share my photos online?
We DO NOT share any images without your permission. And we don’t tag our clients or list anyone’s name unless it is a testimonial you have specifically written for us. This experience and these images are for YOU first. If you allow us to share them, that is entirely your choice.
How many outfits will I get to wear?
We plan for 5 outfits per session. If wardrobe changes are fast, we might be able to do 6. If the outfits take a bit more time to get in and out of, we might end up with 4.
Do I have to wear lingerie?
Nope! There is no dress code for boudoir. You can wear whatever you are comfortable with. Some clients wear lingerie, or go topless. Some are full dressed the entire time. It’s completely up to you.
Do you have outfits in the studio or do I bring my own?
Both. I suggest bringing more outfits than you think you’ll need and we can choose the best ones here with you. You can also wear anything we have here in the studio.
How long does it take to receive my images?
You will get to see all of your gorgeous photos about 2 weeks after your session. Albums and prints are usually ready for pickup in 3-4 weeks after that. If you pay in full at your ordering appointment, which most clients do, you can take home your digital images that day!
Hear About Their Boudoir Experience
Here is what my clients had to say about their session right after we finished shooting
About Mike Lloyd
I’m on a mission to help women who tend to put others first, explore their own path of self love and acceptance without feeling guilt or shame. I never had any interest in being a boudoir photographer because I didn’t just want to take ‘sexy photos.’ Then I learned that we could create an incredibly empowering experience for our clients to truly feel beautiful, and strong, and feminine, and elegant without having to do cheesy poses. That’s what this is all about. We’ve created a space for you to be unnapologetically you.
I’ve been a professional photographer since 2010 and I have been teaching photographers around the world how to do what I do since 2012. It’s so rewarding to help my clients feel like their best selves, and help other photographers build a thriving career doing the same.
My work is heavily influenced by luxury fashion and companies like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany’s, and Dior. That’s why my photography doesn’t look like traditional boudoir. I photograph you the same way I would do a shoot to market Chanel perfume.
