Faqs for New York Boudoir Photography Sessions A Vital Beauty Photo

Faqs for New York Boudoir Photography Sessions A Vital Beauty Photo

Bridal Boudoir photography is the best groom's gift ever! 
Long Island Photographer Avital Krasilovsky


Where do the photo shoots take place?

Boudoir shoots generally take place in the privacy of my home studio in Jericho, NY. If discussed far enough in advance, shoots can also be arranged for a beautiful hotel room in New York City or Long Island, your home, a studio or other dream locations of your choice. 


I have cellulite, stretch marks, acne, baby belly… Do you retouch the photos? Can you still make me look good?

I custom process, edit, and put finishing touches on all the images you will see. If there are things your are especially self conscious about and don’t want shown in the images for example cellulite, acne, scars, stretch marks, we will pose and light you best to minimize these areas and can arrange to remove things still seen in the images, but the photos will be 100% you! I hope to help you see the true beauty in yourself!


What about hair and makeup, do I do it myself?

Professional hair & makeup application is available for all session types and it adds greatly to your pampering and fun experience. Our artists are experienced in Boudoir session hair & makeup and will having you feeling amazing before we even start! Please bring photos of how you would like your hair & makeup to look (natural) means different things to different people. Plan a night out after because your session will have you will feeling like a glammed up/gorgeous version of yourself! The pampering really starts before you even arrive for your shoot! I often get questions about nails. Please get your nails done as close to the day of your shoot as possible, choose a neutral color (nude, tans, white, black) so your nails don't clash with your outfits. Red can work too if all of your wardrobe is black or white. If you dye your hair, you may want a root touch up before your big day!


Should I go tanning and get waxed before my shoot?

If you really want to tan, please do so at least 4 days before your shoot, a nasty sunburn can really detract from your images. Self tanners and spray tans often look orange and awful on camera, please refrain from having these done. Retouching tans is an additional charge. They ruin bedding and wardrobe as well. If you are planning on waxing, please do so a few days prior to your shoot, so your skin has enough time to heal.


I don't look like the women on your website and instagram. Will I still get good photos?

You will absolutely get amazing photos and look like the women on our pages! They all came in with the same fears and we showed them how amazing they are! Your session will allow you to see the beauty and sexy that others see!


What do I wear? Do I bring my own lingerie, or do you provide the outfits?

Clients generally bring most of their own lingerie to the photo session. I do have a client closet and some jewelry, , heels, robes, props, etc. available, but definitely want at least a few looks that you love, you know fit and makes you feel sexy!

Whether you prefer bra & panty sets, knee highs with an oversized sweater or garters & a corset, choose outfits that you love (don’t forget some gorgeous heels). Please try it all on before your shoot! If there are parts you want to hide, pick some outfits that cover it in some way maybe a corset, bodysuit, skirt...  Some clients choose to do some artistic nudes as well, it is all up to you. I can do amazing things with just bed sheets, so no matter what we will make beautiful images! Once you pay your deposit and complete the booking process you will also receive an email with our prep guide, outlining all the details along with some wardrobe recommendations. If you need help with outfit ideas you can see some on the custom mood board I create for you or we can select things together via text or facetime. 


What if I dont like any of the photos?

So many people have asked me this and it makes me so sad to hear. I have never had any clients not like enough photos to fit an album. Generelly, the problem is editing down! Of course, sometimes there are a few images they don’t love, but I promise you will go crazy for your images! Everyone is always surprised with what great posing and lighting can do! That is why people come to  me, an experienced professional! I have learned many so tricks over the years and will teach you them!

Will my photos show up on the internet, your website or instagram?

I take my clients' privacy very seriously. I will always ask your permission before any images are posted. It is your choice whether to sign a model release or not.  


When and how will I see the images from my shoot? When can I have final products and prints?

Around 2 weeks after your session we will arrange an in-person (or remote for our out-of-town clients) photo reveal/ordering session. It takes about 2 weeks from the viewing session to see album layouts and about 4 more weeks to receive products once approved and orders are placed. Generally in 6-8 weeks is when you will have your final custom products. Nothing goes to print without your approval.


I want to do a boudoir party with my bridesmaids, do you offer any special group rates or packages?

Yes, yes, yes! We book you in for an awesome girls day out! Come on in have some snacks, blast some music, get hair & makeup done and spend the day feeling gorgeous! Each lady gets her own mini boudoir shoot and ordering session.  Everyone receives a discounted rate on their packages, and everyone leaves feeling gorgeous and ready for a night out!


When will I see and select my imags?

You will see your images at your reveal about 2 weeks after your session. You return to the studio  watch a little video we create of some of our favorites and then we select your favorites for album and additional artwork. I will send you the layout for approval a few days later, one approved, I place your order. 


What is your refund policy?

The session fee and any products ordered are non-refundable. But have no fear, I will always get your approval on prints, albums and products before sending them to the printer.  Life happens and we understand that, if absolutely necessary one session reschedule at least a week out from your will be accepted without incurring an additional fee. Any additional cancellations will incur $150 rescheduling fee. 

For any further questions please join our ladies only empowerment group and previous clients can help you out as well.
