Groupon FAQ’s for BH Photography’s boudoir sessions.
I sincerely hope that this page answers your most pressing questions. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can give me a call at 613.282.3852 or e-mail me
1. I’m not a model, I’m not a size 0, I’m too old, I’m full of excuses.
You don’t need to be a model, a size 0, or any specific age. Previous boudoir clients have been between the ages of 21 and 60, and have ranged from a size 0 to a size 28. We’ve found that every woman has her hang ups, no matter her age or size. We will work with you to showcase your best features, and prove that you have nothing to worry about! We use professional studio lighting, as well as posing to create the best possible images.
2. Is the session only open to women?
3. How old do I have to be?
Due to the nature of the session, you must be over the age of 18. Please be prepared to show proof of age should we ask.
4. Ok, you’ve convince me. What’s included?
Your Groupon includes a 1 hour session in our 1000 square foot studio, complete with the use of our bedroom set, and antique furniture. Your session is private, safe and fun. All of your images are fully retouched, and provided to you in a password protected proofing gallery.
5. Do I bring my own outfits?
Yes. Due to hygienic reasons, we do not provide outfits. There are some accessories at the studio. We suggest bringing 6-8 different outfits. Normally, we will cover 2-3 outfits during an hour session. Accessories such as necklaces and heels are also important.
6. Is hair and makeup included?
Hair and makeup isn’t included, but is available at the studio for $179. We use a professional, mobile makeup artist. Hair and makeup typically takes an extra hour of time.
7. What if I would like a longer session?
As a special for our Groupon clients, you may add an hour to your session for $78 (normally $150!)
8. How do I order prints? Are your prints secure?
You may order your prints from your password protected gallery. Our lab only caters to professional photographers. Your images are treated with care, and are guaranteed not to fade for over 100 years. You may pick up your prints at the studio, or have them mailed to you discretely. Standard postage is included. We offer secure, tracked shipments, for a shipping fee of $15
9. Can I get a digital copy of my images?
Yes, fully retouched images are available for $50 each, or $249 for the complete set.
10. Since you’re doing so many sessions, will the quality be the same as your regular clients?
Yes, it’s in our best interest to provide you with the best in both quality and experience. Most of our clients are referrals from previous clients. Our goal is to have you rave about your session to your friends!
11. How do I book my session?
It’s best to call me at 613.282.3852 to book a session. If you’re unable to call, feel free to e-mail me: [email protected] to book your session. Sessions are booked on a first come, first served basis. We will answer the phone between the hours of 9am and 4pm, unless I’m in the middle of a session. I strive to answer all e-mails within 24 hours, however during the first week or two of the Groupon deal, please allow for up to 48 hours.
12. I’ve booked my session, but something’s come up, can I change the date?
Yes, no problem. Since we’ve specifically reserved your time slot, we ask that you give us 72 hours notice to change your date and time. If you have to cancel within 72 hours, a $45 fee will apply.
13. Can I book my session at a location other than your studio?
Yes, for locations within Ottawa, a $150 location fee applies.
14. How long does it take to receive my images?
Since we always finish our work, which includes colour correction, airbrushing, and other touch ups, please allow 1-2 weeks for your images to be available. Trust us, it’s worth the wait!
