Hello there beautiful! Thank you for your interest in After Dark Photography Studio, we specialize in boudoir and beauty styled shoots helping women find a little self-love therapy to bring out their inner warrior.
Our sessions all start with a consultation to make sure we are the right team for you and your experience, boudoir is a very personal process so we encourage you to shop around and make sure you vibe with the team you have chosen. During your consultation, we will chat over coffee/tea and talk about your session needs and your style preferences. We will talk about lingerie, body types, and how to pick the best outfits for the style you have chosen as well as direct you to places you can find the perfect lingerie for you. It is normally during the consultation that a client will book a session appointment with us and we can start planning your big day! We only work with a few clients at a time to ensure we can focus on your needs your experience, and that the process is empowering.
Session day! We will have been in contact un until this point chatting lingerie and answering any questions you may have; we are always happy to answer all your questions so never hesitate! Session day we will meet at the location that has been rented for your session, we work with a couple of different locations, so we are flexible in pairing your unique style into the atmosphere of the space. You will get hair and makeup done while we sip on coffee/tea and chat to unwind and just have some girl time. After hair and makeup is the photo session! I will personally guide you through all the posing from head to toe so don’t stress, I’ve got you covered! The photo portion of the session will last 1.5-2 hrs., after that, we will both be a bit sore and ready to take a break as boudoir poses, though they look amazing when done correctly, can be a little uncomfortable.
Right after your session, your photos will be put into a “soft edit” process where there will be light retouching and color correction as your photos are prepared to be placed into a gallery for viewing, this process can take up to 14 business days.
Gallery Viewing! The day you have been no doubt anxiously waiting. We will schedule another in-person meeting where you’ll get to view your gallery and pick your product! This is no doubt our favorite time, our clients light up seeing their photos for the first time and are filled with empowerment and confidence. After your viewing and picking out your images to go into the final process, we will part ways again but not to worry our team is hard at work finalizing your images and ordering your product! Depending on the product and number of photos chosen, it can take 1-3 weeks for finalization and product to come back from our labs.
Seeing your product for the first time! We will arrange the best method for product delivery prior to ordering, whether it comes to you, you pick up, or we bring it by hand, we are so excited for the day you hold your product in hand and feel how powerful, confident, and beautiful you are. Even if it is a gift for someone else, make sure to allow your time-space to enjoy the process. Boudoir is a mindful, self-love therapy experience and we are so excited to chat with you further!
