If you’ve decided it’s finally time to try a boudoir shoot but you're finding the task of locating the perfect photography studio daunting then we’ve got the perfect guide for you! Read on to see what we think are the things to look out for when choosing your studio!
When reviewing boudoir studios you should always look for a studio who has a similar style to what you’re looking for. Researching a studios blog and social media images will give you a great idea on what your finished images will look like. Look for furniture, sets and a vibe that you love. For example, if you LOVE light and airy photography that elicits a dreamy aesthetic but the boudoir studios website is all moody lighting, dark leather and uber sexy images then they might not be the right fit for you! If you don’t really know what style you’re going for we suggest reviewing lots of studios work and seeing which images really capture your attention.

We always suggest doing your homework and checking the “about” page on the boudoir studios website. Look for a team that is leading the field with lots of experience and a high skill set. Boudoir is a venerable adventure and it’s imperative that you choose a team you trust. Does the team sound professional and fun? Does it sound like they know what they are talking about? That they will create a safe place for you to step outside of your comfort zone? Gloss Boudoir Studio is an all female team devoted to making every client feel completely comfortable.

Reviews are such a great way to see what other clients like yourself are feeling about their experience and to make sure the studio holds customer service in high regard. You can see our Google reviews here!
Are the images consistent throughout their website and social media? Do the images look like they were created with intention and that the posing is well thought-out? We believe that our studio is always consistent because we care so much about creating such a phenomenal experience for each and every client. We want all clients to have the absolute best of us!

Retouching is such a hot topic these days! We prefer to retouch so that you look like YOU, on your best day! But we absolutely retouch to each of our clients requests. We offer modest retouching to every client which includes removing any blemishes or bruises that aren’t normally there, smoothing out the skin and under eye circles and doing some nips & tucks where needed. Most clients think this is perfect but others prefer a more heavy handed application. Whatever makes you the most comfortable is what we’ll do for you!
While doing your research we recommend looking to see if the boudoir studio shows women of different ethnicities, ages and sizes and creates an inclusive environment. Are all of the women in their photos professional models or do you see different body types? If you’re interested in seeing the clients who have allowed us to share their images you can check out our blog or portfolio.
Leaders in the Boudoir world:
If you’re looking for an out-of-this-world boudoir experience then we suggest looking for a boudoir studio who focuses solely on boudoir. Many photographers offer wedding photography, family sessions and then boudoir as an afterthought. We think finding a team who’s sole purpose is to empower women is exactly what you should keep an eye out for. Look into choosing a studio that specializes in cutting edge boudoir technology, practices posing & editing everyday and prides themselves on having a boudoir-only studio that keeps things fresh, current and sexy! Choose a studio that is a leader in the Boudoir World. Check out our website to see what Gloss has to offer!
