Before Your Boudoir Experience
Your Free, No Obligation Consultation
Making the step to book your boudoir experience is a big one, and for many it’s a pretty far out of their comfort zone! That’s why we talk to all prospective clients before booking. We’d love to hear your reasons for booking a boudoir experience & then share about everything’s that’s included in the boudoir experience. You can come visit us in person at our Parry Sound studio, or we can arrange to connect via video chat so we can give you a studio tour and so you get a feel for the amazing products we have for you.
How to Reserve Your Spot
When you’re ready, we’ll set up a date and time, and get you booked in with our hair and makeup artist with the session experience of your choice. To complete your booking, you’ll be asked to sign our client agreement, plus pay the session retainer. Once both have been completed, your date is reserved and it’s time to start prepping!
The session retainer includes tons of amazing resources such as:
~ We have 3 session options from which you can choose. The session retainer begins at $299
** The session experience does not include finished products. These are sold separately during your image reveal and ordering session

The Day of Your Boudoir Experience
Hair and Makeup
We’ll greet you with a glass of champagne or mimosa, play your favourite playlist, and get you settled in with our hair and makeup artist Jen Turner from Modern Makeup.
Hair and makeup is ALWAYS included in our sessions because it’s an integral part of the experience. It’s about sitting down, taking time for yourself, and allowing yourself to be pampered. Jen will work with you on the kind of look you’re going for. Whether you like a lighter, more natural look, Hollywood red carpet glam, or as one of our clients said, “I want to look like a sexy ho!” our team’s got you covered!
Some Before & Afters
The next step is your time with Meg for the photo part of the experience. All you have to do is walk through the door, and do what she says! 😀 Honestly, though, she’ll start by demonstrating the pose herself, and then refine it by telling you which hand to put where, how to point your toes, where to look, and even what to do with your mouth! You’ll be rocking the poses in no time flat because she coaches you through every single step so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
You choose whether you want the 1 hour photo session option, or if you’d like to upgrade to the 2nd hour. With the 2nd hour, you have the chance to use our famour shower set, and/or shoot outside in our studio gardens (seasonal and weather dependent).
Same Day Image Reveal & Ordering Session
About 60 minutes right after your boudoir experience, you get to see your photos!
Seeing the outcome of such an incredible experience where you’ve felt proud & beautiful, confident & empowered is important. We don’t want you waiting weeks to see them!
Also, many of our clients come from pretty far away, so it’s super challenging and inconvenient for them to drive home and then all the way back again a few weeks later.
We’ll show you a quick slideshow of the highlights from your experience, and then go through all of your images one by one. We’ll go through them as many times as you like until you have your favourites picked.
This can take a while, and that’s okay. We LOVE it when you love so many of your images! We’ll then walk you through all of our sample products and help you determine the best way for you to enjoy them.
