What on earth is Boudoir?
Can a Boudoir Shoot really change my life?
There are so many misconceptions about boudoir photography that I want to clear up before we get started…
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
– Boudoir is for EVERY type of women.
– Numbers do NOT define you.
– You can NEVER lose your sexy, no matter what age you are! Trust me.
– You don’t need ANY type of experience at all.
– Women who invest in themselves, go further!
– Lastly, Be You. Do You. For You.
Before the Shoot
Once you have decided to have a fabulous shoot with us and you have booked your shoot we will send a Welcome Pack with all the details and advice on what to bring with you, time frames and preparation ideas.
If you have any concerns or questions then please contact Alison who will be happy to discuss your needs.
The Make up & Hair Styling
This is an exciting part of the whole boudoir experience and our make up artist Juliette will ensure that you are pampered and feel relaxed and beautiful before the shoot starts.
She will advise you on the best colours that suit you and the look that you want to achieve. You can have your hair up, down, straight, curly . Juliette will be happy to create the look you want. Nothing is too much trouble!
The makeover is a fantastic way to relax and we aim to make you feel special being pampered all the way. We serve you refreshments during the makeover and we have music playing in the background to help create the right mood.
We only book one lady in a day to ensure that you are relaxed and we can take our time to get the best from your boudoir shoot experience.
What happens after the Makeover?
After your makeover its time to get into your outfits. We have a private changing room for you to change in so that you can feel comfortable and private changing into your lingerie.
We recommend that you bring a dressing gown with you so that you are comfortable between sets.
We provide an array of different props and accessories, including voiles, organza, jewellery, long leather gloves, fans, feather boas and lots more !!
It is natural to feel a bit apprehensive so when you arrive on the day of your shoot you will be met by Alison and in no time at all you will start to relax and enjoy your boudoir shoot experience.
You will then be invited to sit down for a cup of tea or coffee to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. We will look through the lingerie you have brought along so that you get the best out of your time with us.
Alison will guide you throughout the shoot and at all times will ensure that you are relaxed and comfortable before taking any photographs, she even gets into the poses herself to show you what to do. Our main aim is to ensure that you have an amazing experience and that you really enjoy the shoot.
After the Shoot
After the shoot Alison will edit your photos straight away ready for you to view approximately one hour after your shoot has finished. You will be offered a light lunch and bubby while you wai .
Your gorgeous images will then be presented on a large TV screen to music when they will come to life and you will see the amazing results. The WOW factor is what we are looking for.
All retouching and post production is done as part of the package prices but if there is an extra bit of retouching you would like done then Alison will be more than happy to do this for you.
Ultimately, we want you to have really enjoyed the experience and be delighted with the final product.
“Highly highly recommend the Red Bow Boudoir Experience :) The Red Bow Team are so friendly! My friend Justine and I felt instantly relaxed in their company… Within five mins we were all sipping on champagne, and giggling like school girls! (Justine practically did make her self at home … Shoes were off… Laying on sofa!!!) We had the lovely Juliette pampering us… Hair and makeup was done perfectly… Giving us a real boost in prep for the shoot… Great to pick her brains on hair and makeup tips! Alison is an amazing host and extremely talented photographer… She spends time getting to know what you want out of the photo shoot, makes you feel so at ease and confident in not only posing and getting into character in the photos but also in her ability to capture what you want. Also got to meet the gorgeous Steph (Alison’s daughter) Brad who both popped in and out for a good ol chin wag, both very welcoming :) xx We are both extremely happy with the photographs, got a tad emotional when I first saw them! The Team and the photographs helped me find my confidence and inner minx again… Thank you so much from both of us xxxx Can’t wait to see the other photographs again! Xxx Will definitely be coming back :) xxx”
