It might seem like forever ago since we were issued stay at home orders due to Covid 19 and while some orders (with restrictions) still remain in place in Ontario, here at The Boudoir Lounge, we have been able to operate our studio with safe practices and Covid protocols in place. However, like we’ve learned over the past year, policies and provincial mandates can change at the drop of a hat, so we have decided to continue to offer Virtual Sessions for those folks who are in lockdown or prefer to stay in their homes for safety.
Once you book your session, I will send you a link that you will use when it’s time for your session. You will need to download the ZOOM MEETING App onto your phone or digital device. We will be using your phone/digital device to capture your images so please make sure your phone is fully charged for your shoot Upon signing in you will see me and I will see you! Then, it’s time to get started!
We will begin the session by taking a look around your space, to see what the scene and lighting looks like. Then I will give you instructions, on where to prop up your phone and where to pose yourself in the scene. We will work our way around the spaces we have chosen in order to give you a variety of scenes, we may even be able to throw in an extra little wardrobe change in there for you too!
We will be moving you and your phone around…A LOT! This helps to get the right angles and work with the best light in your space. So here are some helpful tips to help prepare yourself:
* If you have a selfie stick or mini tripod, keep it handy! We may need this to stablise your phone. Also, if you don’t have a selfie stick or tripod, a Kleenix tissue box can work as a make-shift tripod too. You can just pop your phone up into where the tissues come out and then move the box around where ever we need to.
* Make sure you have a good light source. A window or door with natural light works best. We can work with almost any light source if we need to, but natural light is abundant and easily accessible, so we’ll try and keep it simple.
* Have objects of varying heights to work with and to place your phone/device on. It can be a bit of trail and error to get the angles and phone position right, so if we have a variety of surface areas that are moveable and are at different heights, it will help us to get a better variety of images for you.
* The bigger the space to work in, the better! Small spaces work but larger spaces work better. If you have an area that allows you to move around easily without having to move too many objects, that is ideal!
At the end of your shoot, I will take all your images and start to “create” your own unique image gallery by applying various digital techniques and applications that work cohesively with the images that we captured together. After the creative process is complete, you will receive your final password protected online gallery, that will be delivered to you where you will have 10 finalized images for you to enjoy!
*It’s important to remember that due to the capture methods for these sessions the images are lower quality than you might be familiar with, especially if you’ve ever had professional photos taken before. However, you will still be able to display and show these images, they will just be at a smaller resolution and size. Your final gallery will be delivered to you via a password protected online gallery where you will have 10 finalized images for you to enjoy!
Webcam sessions are a wonderful way to capture a little bit of you during these crazy times!
YES….MEN CAN DO THESE SESSIONS TOO!
VIRTUAL WECBAM sessions aren’t just reserved for the ladies. We have had a number of gentlemen join us online for sessions too.
The most appealing thing our male clients love have said they love about these sessions is that they are quick, no fuss, and hassle-free. They get to do them in their own homes and surroundings which can sometimes be a more comfortable setting. We can even do your shoot in your man cave if that’s your thing!
WHAT TO EXPECT
– Each session will last approximately 30-45 minutes during which you get to feel good about yourself while flaunting your stuff!
– You will receive clear direction from yours truly for the duration of the session
– This a chance to create unique art that you wouldn’t normally participate in and to document this very unique time in your life
– Once the sessions is completed you will receive 10 finalized images in digital form*
Please note, due to webcam/phone quality, all images will be provided in low resolution only.
– This session will give you the opportunity to do something fun and positive for yourself. It will help you to feel confident, give you a renewed sense of self, and also help to hit pause, from all that’s going on around us right now….and who wouldn’t want that?
This is a chance for us to create ART together!! Due to the nature, way and quality of how we will be shooting your session, we get to create some cool retro vintage looks with your images, that we wouldn’t usually do during a regular Boudoir Experience. This is chance to create some cool and interesting art in the comfort of your own home!
If you’ve ever wanted to have a voyeur experience, then these sessions are also great for that!
You can share your images with others or just choose to keep them for YOU!
FAQ’s – WHAT DO I WEAR?
You can wear whatever the hell you like OR NOTHING AT ALL!!
It’s totally up to you! I do suggest wearing whatever makes you feel comfortable, sexy or sensual. Anything that makes you feel those things, will totally work! ! If you’re unsure about which wardrobe pieces to choose, then we can do a little fashion show of your pieces before we start shooting, so I can give you my recommendations. It’s that easy!
It also works well to try and wear something that suits the particular environment or space in your home, that we will be shooting in. For example, if it is a bedroom, then any type of lingerie will work, along with comfy clothes like a cute sweater, tank or tee-shirt with a nice pair of underwear. These work great! If it’s somewhere like a bathroom/shower, we can do a towel around your body or on the head (like you’ve just come out of the shower etc) or some implied or fine art nudes of you in the shower or bath. If the plan is to go outside into your backyard or pool area, then maybe a swimsuit or cute streetwear/workout, outfit will work too.
MY HOUSE IS NOT PHOTO-WORTHY, WHAT DO I DO?
Everyone’s home is perfectly photo worthy!! You do not have to have a fancy “Instagram” or “Pinterest Perfect”, freshly decorated or painted home, in order for us to create wonderful images together. In fact, you might be pleasantly surprised how well your current home’s aesthetics, lend itself to your photo shoot.
Honestly, a bed, a couch or chair, a blank wall, and a window – that’s all we need. And if your home has other places spaces we can work in, AMAZING. Everything else beyond what I have mentioned above is a bonus! And don’t worry too much about cleaning up spaces or dusting like crazy. The beauty of these sessions is that you REALLY won’t be able to see those details…so that means less work for you and more time for us to play!
IS THIS A SUBSTITUTE FOR A REGULAR SESSION WITH YOU?
The simply answer to this question is NO.
Think of these as a little pre-session “teaser”.
These are digital webcam sessions, so we will not physically be in the same room or the same space, but you will receive all the same direction and positive feedback from me, as you would if we were doing a regular session together. There is no professional hair or makeup application included with these sessions, so it’s entirely up to you if you wish to style your hair or apply makeup prior to your session. These sessions are also significantly shorter – they are only about 30 minutes, as opposed to the few hours, that we would normally spend together for a regular Boudoir session in my studio. The photo quality will also a lot lower than usually, due to the capture methods used to create your image. And although you may not be able to include them in a luxury album, you will be able to display them at a smaller print size if you wish or on your mobile phone.
These types of sessions are an alternative to a traditional boudoir session that I offer and although they will not replace the FULL experience that I offer in my studio, they are a fun and great way to dip your toes in and enjoy a “teaser” BEFORE booking your luxury Boudoir experience with me. The major benefit to this type of session is that you get to do it from the comfort of your own home!
BoudoirWebCam Sessions are $200 (+HST)
for a 30-minute session includes all digital files
