Boudoir Sessions

 

 

Thank you for considering Ionna Photography and Imaging, LLC to capture your intimate beauty!  Boudoir sessions are becoming very popular to people looking to give the perfect, sexy gift for an anniversary or birthday. A boudoir session allows you to create an intimate book or set of photographs for your husband, boyfriend or partner.  Boudoir sessions are usually conducted on location in a hotel room or in your bedroom, but can be shot in the studio if necessary. However, I recommend that all boudoir sessions be conducted in a “boudoir’ or bedroom environment, because that’s the nature of boudoir photography, and the shots just turn out better than if they were shot in a studio against a backdrop. A boudoir session is normally a 1-2 hours and involves several outfit changes.

 

My Boudoir Sessions are $300 (for up to 2 hours).

Photography Information:

You will receive a minimum of 15 digital images complete with photo finishing.  (Photo finishing means altering or smoothing skin, hair and/or body using Photoshop).  There is an additional fee of $5 per each additional image with photo finishing.  Any additional finishing will take 7 days (per 8 images) from the date the finishing is ordered.  This price is non-negotiable.  Any additional individuals will be $25 extra per person and pets are $35 additional.

 

The session will include:

  • 1 photographer on location
  • A minimum of 15 digital images
  • Unlimited outfit changes (under 2 hours)
  • Photo finishing
  • Personal, password protected webpage for sharing
  • Downloadable images to be delivered on www.ionnaphotography.com

 

CD Storage

I do not offer CDs due to their low integrity, future damage, and file corruption.  You will receive your photos on a personal password protected webpage.  From there you can download your images just like you would do a CD.  I also offer jump drives for an additional fee of $10 per jump drive.

Unfortunately I cannot guarantee your booking or my availability without a deposit.  I require a 40% retainer deposit to book, and your entire remaining, standing balance the day of the shoot.  Any additional fees, such as overages, will be due in 10-14 days before your images are delivered.

Please read our policies and agreements thoroughly.  We will receive your physical signature before the session takes place.

This session price includes a minimum of fifteen (15) digital images to be delivered via electronically through www.ionnaphotography.com, on a password-protected webpage, within two weeks (14 days) prior to the session.

 

A 40% retainer deposit is required to secure the session date.  Your remaining, standing balance will be due on the day of BEFORE the session, and any additional fees will be due 10-14 days before your digital images are delivered.  Different pricing may occur if monthly specials or promotions take place.
