We are in downtown Bemidji, on the second floor of the beautiful old Northwest Minnesota foundation building! You can see our logo on the entrance door that is facing 3rd street.
Expect to feel nervous! You will be changing in an area that is private but not a bathroom so use the bathroom before your arrival! There are bathrooms down the hall. We will take time to talk about everything we are going to do, what you can expect during the actual shoot, how we will be coaching you, and picking out which outfits you’ll wear first! Oh, and you’ll probably laugh and feel like a supermodel too.
Please arrive no later than 5 minutes before your schedule session to give yourself time to relax and change. Keep in mind, there might be someone finishing up before you so relax on the couch in the waiting area if you see the sign “in session” up.
Yes, we do not confirm your appointment until you have paid your session fee. It is easy to pay the invoice that is sent to you via email with any Internet capable device, or we can take your payment over the phone!
We will email you after you book your session with all the things you need to do and prep before your big day 😉
RELAX & be on the lookout for emails and/or text reminders. We don’t expect you to remember EVERYTHING in one email 😉
At Boutique Boudoir Studios, we believe getting pampered is part of the experience. We are open to you doing your own hair, however getting makeup done by our wonderful and talented makeup artist is a must 😉
In short YES! Our makeup artist is a true professional and can bring out everything from a natural look to the edgy vixen in you! You can also show us a “look” you’re going for and we’ll do it! You can look like whomever you want to look like!
At Boutique Boudoir Studios, we believe every woman is unique and beautiful! The style of clothing for each woman is extremely personal therefore, we do not believe in stocking a dressing room at this time. We want to make sure you choose outfits beforehand that represent you – not come in guessing and feeling anxious about what to wear, or seeing your BFF chose the same outfit as you to do her session after the fact! We are NOT a costume style studio and feel stocking outfits would take away from the individual experience. We do carry a handful of shoes, and a few corsets and robes that can be combined with what you bring & be easily sanitized. Please ask if you’re looking for something in particular to help with the variation.
We usually provide an email with tried and true suggestions for outfits! Many clients text or email photos of possible outfits and we help them make their final choices. Otherwise, they just bring more than needed and we help them decide in the studio.
Yes! This is a collaboration! If you have any ideas, please share them with us, or show us exactly what you want.
You can bring your friend or significant other to your makeover session or viewing session as of right now. However, we do not allow guests at your actual photography session. During your photography session, it’s best there’s no one else there to distract you from what we’re trying to do 😉
Absolutely! I give super easy to follow instructions and will coach you on everything from facial expressions down to the placement of your fingers. You will be guided through the entire photo shoot and will not have to guess anything!
We airbrush all skin for the images you purchase! Usually the light airbrushing, in conjunction with the way we take photographs and our lighting, softens a lot of skin textures.
Currently, we try to do viewing sessions about an hour after your session if time permits. If time doesn’t permit we find a time in the next 1-2 weeks to view and purchase.
While we cannot say how much you are going to spend on something we haven’t created yet, we can say that the average client spends between $1000-$2500 including session fees and chosen products. Please see our investment page for more details.
Thank you for asking! We are proud to say that we in fact DO offer payment plans! I believe that the investment you’ve made by experiencing an empowering boudoir and beauty session is worth it, and you are worth it! Show yourself some love by taking home some of the exclusive Boutique Boudoir Studios items we offer. So, celebrate yourself and get what you really want! How many of us own a laptop or cell phone that we’ll have to replace in no more than 3 years?! Your chosen product will be YOURS for a lifetime, not to mention, the experience of putting yourself first and discovering something new about yourself will elevate your confidence for a lifetime! All payment arrangements are customized to fit the client, and are agreed upon at the viewing session. Most clients find that a 3, 6, or 9-month payment arrangement works very well for them. #treatyourself
We are so happy to be able to say YES you can! We have found it to be in the best interest of the clients to review the photographs before print. Photos will be presented via an online link the client can view from any Internet device! Once the client approves, the final product goes to print, and the client is notified of the delivery window!
Your album may take 3-4 weeks after your session to be delivered. There are variations for this, but it is a general estimation. It is always best to call us as soon as possible when planning a surprise shoot! We can discuss your unique needs and see if we can accommodate your special occasion!
YES! We NEVER show images unless clients have signed a model release stating we can use their images for advertising, our webpage or social media platforms, etc.
We are not lying when we say we believe in the beauty of every person! From your makeup application to your photos, we will bring out the best YOU that you have ever seen!! You do you and we’ll be there to translate via photography.
YES!!! Our studio is a NON-JUDGMENT zone! We are in the business of helping women from all walks of life, all ages and sizes, love and embrace themselves for who they are! We are here to reveal YOUR sexy, whatever that means to you!
I like to think of myself as being a coach. You have that sexy, happy, confident, strong, dreamer, peaceful and powerful woman inside of you. My job is to bring her out!
At Boutique Boudoir Studios, we believe in the natural beauty of our surroundings. By utilizing the “natural” layout of the studio, we maximize on the lighting effect and composition of the image. Thus, providing our clients with “the Natural Beauty Experience” unmatched by our competitors.
