The most popular & complete 4 hour boudoir experience starts at $1200 which includes hair and makeup, access to our incredible client wardrobe, a photoshoot with full posing assistance, and a private viewing and ordering session where you get to see all of your images on the big screen and feel like a Hollywood movie star, and a custom handmade album of 20 images. We offer Collections, as well as A La Carte Sessions so that we are able to fully customize your day with us leaving you with the best products for your individual lifestyle. Our pricing begins at $1550 and goes up from there with various options available. Typically our clients invest anywhere from $1550 - 2100 in their Experience with us.
All of the final purchased images will receive the custom MJPC edits that make our images POP!. We can edit out things like pimples, bruises, scratches, undereye, skin texture or redness, etc. With our expert posing and lighting skills it is usually not necessary for nip and tucks. We do offer additional retouching services at no cost on things like cellulite, stretch marks, and scars, but we always leave those decisions up to you. You are beautiful just the way you are, no matter your age or size. We all have our self perceived flaws, so we work together to help you look and feel your best!
Heck yes! We offer payment plans for up to 12 months! They’re super simple and flexible to set up and we can make your dream session a reality. We are always happy to discuss payment plan options on the phone prior to booking if you would like!
Obviously once you see your images you will fall in love with them and may rethink a previous notion of keeping them private and want to share them with the world! But, unless we have your written permission, your images will remain private from any public forum.
That’s easy! You can just reach out to us as soon as you are ready, and we will go over all of the information, pricing, and availability with you and get you on our calendar ASAP. Once you pay the Session Fee retainer (we collect 20% of the collection you want to book your session), your date will be locked in and good to go!
You will be after this! HAHA. But seriously, we do this thing where we act really silly and I pose you from your eyes to your toes and move you all around. Not one person in my portfolio is a paid model, they are normal women like you would see picking up the kids from school or shopping at the grocery store.
The studio is located in downtown North Branch, MN. We are roughly 50 miles straight up I35 from the Twin Cities Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
You will be invited to return to the studio about 2 weeks later, we will go through all of our sample products, and then show you a slideshow of your gorgeousness! Then we do the selection and design process for your printed products and place your order.
We are going to send you detailed information several weeks before your session that will go over all the details. You will receive a prep guide, a lingerie guide a checklist and a packing list!
The only thing you really have to bring is 1 nude thong and 1 black thong if you are wearing MJCP items. That is it! You wear these under our Client Wardrobe for an added layer of protection. Some optional items we love to photograph that you can bring are thigh highs, fishnet stockings, and clothing options like sweaters, t-shirts, etc. Shoes and jewelry are also a great way to add some personality to your session, so we always love when people bring those too!!
Simple is best and you will get a full guide that explains everything! We will never push you beyond your comfort zone, and many clients like to end the session with a 'white sheet' set, we can chat about that to you when we do your pre-session consult!
If you love lingerie I have curated a boutique specifically chosen for photography regarding style, colors, structure, texture and have sizes SM - 4X. You can take a peek at the online store @ www.honeybeeintimates.com or book a private appointment to try things on! The reason I opened the boutique is to give you the best and most positive experience I can give you from beginning to end. It is disheartening when you book the boudoir session and you don't know what to wear, or wear to shop...or you do buy something and you don't love it or doesn't fit right...and you show up to session day not 100% excited or confident. I extend my services by giving you not only a lingerie guide but helping you in the boutique 1:1 so you have outfits that you LOVE and are a ready to go!
In theory this sounds like it would be fun, but we find that sometimes when there is an audience, our clients hold back. We really want you to let loose, have fun! You will never be alone in the studio. My team is all women and there will always be another person in the studio with us.
Our studio usually books about 3 months in advance, if not more. When selecting a date to book, I always recommend booking 12 weeks in advance of the date you need your images for (like a wedding, holiday, etc). For instance, if you are getting married in October I would recommend coming in no later than June for your session! Our calendar fills up fast so I always tell people to grab a date as soon as they can so they don’t miss out on any deadlines. We can rush orders for clients who find themselves in a bind, but we’d rather plan in advance so your experience is stress free!
Honestly, this is a step you DON’T want to skip! Amazing hair and makeup goes miles for your transformation, and it will make you FEEL like a million bucks! It’s also a lot of fun to be pampered for a bit before your session, it gives you some time to unwind with our girls and get comfortable in the studio. Proper makeup application and hair styling also saves us oodles of time during retouching, because professionally applied, you will look flawless.
