We are usually asked about:

Q. I'm very conscious of my body shape after children and feel I won't look good in the photos!

Clients who come to our studio are all different shapes and sizes. Students, Mothers, Grandmothers the only age restrictions are the legal ones which all dependant on your session choice (i.e over 18 for boudoir). Proof required if questioned. There are no rules to say one person or one particular age or shape is better than another. Gaining confidence and believing in yourself is what makes for fantastic photographs.

Serenity Boudoir Photography sessions are all about pampering, having fun and dressing up. It’s about being professional styled possibly in a style you have never had before and will want to repeat. It’s about being a girl and  dressed up and letting your hair down forgetting about those insecurities we all seem to pick up through life.

Its time to treat yourself not judge yourself as know one at Serenity Boudoir is judging you, our photography is for everyone willing to express themselves.

Q. There are some stunning ladies on your web site, are they professional models?

There’s a simple answer to that – No.

Anyone with the right tools the right attitude and the right photographers can look great too.

Q: Where will my photography session take place?

Serenity Boudoir Photography carries out 99% of sessions at our studio/salon in Newport Pagnell, Milton Keynes. Our dedicated studio is both practical and functional and has been carefully thought out giving maximum versatility. You will be safe knowing your in a busy female environment and not someones personal house. Our stylists are readily available if needed for touch ups throughout. There is a real buzz and energy which starts from when you enter the salon which all adds to your experience and helps reduce nerves. This cannot be achieved off site or in a strangers home.

Q: How will I know how to pose for my boudoir photography session?

We will help you pose throughout your session. After a brief introduction of how, where and when to look, move or pose hands arms and legs we will start your session.

We are there to help you through every step of your photography session. Posing is different for everyone and individual shape. Some clients are nervous and find it difficult other simply excel by themselves. But each client receives the same care and attention from us.

More often than not you will find us stretched or laid out in a particular pose for you to emulate as we guide you through step by step whilst capturing all your best angels and features.

Q: How far in advance should I book a photography session?

If you are planning a Serenity Boudoir Photography session it is a good idea to book well in advance to save any disappointment. It is best to book 3 to 4 weeks in advance as we are a busy salon and our stylists can book up fast as does our studio time.

Viewings are held a week after your session. Products purchased will take a further 7 to 14 days to arrive in the studio. However for albums and wall frames please allow up to 3 weeks to arrive from the date of your purchase. If a quick turnaround is required then we charge 25% extra.

Q. Do you provide make-up and hair with my photography session?

Serenity Boudoir is unlike any other boudoir studio. We are also a fully functional hair and beauty salon. The only one of its kind in Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas. We specialise in beauty photography only and making you look amazing.

We have no need to book freelance stylists we have our own. Professionals in what they do and the best at making you feel relaxed and confident about your session.

Q. Do you do photography retouching on my boudoir images?

All final images go through final Serenity Boudoir creative airbrushing where and when needed. Airbrushing is not a must have part of what we do and in many cases clients are more than happy with the first off results selected during the viewing. We only edit final images ordered, we do not airbrush the proofs.

However unsightly spots, bits or bruises are removed along with any stretch or clothing marks. We all need a little extra help now and then, however we don’t set out to change anyone from looking unnatural or unrecognisable.

Q. I need promotional photographs with no identity?

We are often asked for photographs for promotional purposes, some full view and some with discression and no identity, the focus being more of the body and body shape or clothing. We are happy to work with you to acheive these photographs as in many cases it’s the not knowing that make them more erotic and sensual.

Q. How much does the photography session cost?

Serenity Boudoir Photography is not just a boudoir studio. We offer many types of beauty photography from head shots through to figure. The session choice is yours and if we don’t have one listed or on promotion then we are more than happy to discuss any special requirements with you.

Costs of sessions can be found on our ‘prices and bookings’ page. Simply select your option and your photography style. Bookings can be carried out online in the form of a voucher, or we are more than happy to take your order over the telephone by calling 01908 2103589, or if preferred during a free studio consultation.

Q. Do you supply clothing and accessories for my photography session?

At Serenity we offer more than just boudoir photography, we offer beauty make-overs, fashion shoots, pin, figure etc. Unlike some studios we are not dedicated to one particular genre as we are creative across a wide range. We do hold some accessories, 50’s dresses, shoes, boots and some items, what we don’t do is supply full outfits.

We actually find that in almost all cases clients have what they need in their own wardrobe. If you don’t it”s a great excuse to go out and buy some new outfits. The advantage of this is the garments will fit you, they will be comfortable and they can be used again.

During the consultation we aim to find your style, your needs and will go through what to bring on the day. However planning is key and bringing outfits you feel confident in or your partner likes you in is going to help you achieve the desired effect. You can never have too many outfits.

Pack a couple of bags over the course of a week, drop in items you think might work, if they don’t then nothing lost. Hats, shoe’s, stockings, flattering corsets or lacy underwear all work well. Mix your colours, not just all black, if your doing this for a partner ask him what he or she likes you in most.

If you are planning a leather or latex outfit then make sure you pack talcum powder. Choose wisely and don’t choose just to play safe. As we say you can never have too much, but you can sure have to little, if your doing nude then thats fine, but if not then brings lots.

Q. Can I bring a friend to sit in on the session?

We are happy for you to bring a friend to your consultation and your viewing. However during your session this is individual only unless you are undergoing a couples session or party session.

We have found that having a friend or friends watching is actually more destructive than supportive. It’s your moment to shine and friends and family can sometimes say the wrong thing. It’s a set of eyes watching rather than actually interacting with you like we do.

If you bring a friend we will ask them to sit close by in the reception room whilst you are having your session, obviously they can help you with outfits etc and talk to you, they just won’t be able to sit in the main studio and monitor your session.

Q. Can I use my camera phone, or copy some of the images?

Serenity Boudoir has a strict policy when it comes to the use of camera”s on our premises and the copyright of images.

If you or a friend are found taking photographs whilst on the premises without authorisation then you/they will be asked to leave without completion or refund. Serenity Boudoir have images on the walls and albums which are personal to other clients. Although permission has been granted to us to use them we are sure they would not appreciate appearing in your photographs and we are confident you would feel the same.

All purchased images cannot be scanned or reproduced under copyright law. However digital images purchased do carry a licence for personal use from the studio. This grants permission to print and use for social media and promotional purpose. However they cannot be manipulated, re-sold or used for commercial use.

Please see our terms and conditions for further information.

Q. Do I have to have to use your stylists for my session, I wish to go elsewhere?

No you don’t have to use our professional stylists for your photography session. However they are experienced at what they do and know how to get the best results for your photographs.

If you choose to supply your own hair and make-up before you come in to us then we will not correct images afterwards for skin shine or poor styling as this has been out of our control. We also won’t be able to offer touch ups throughout your session either. For best results use our stylists that is what they are there for.

If your option includes hair and make-up as standard and you choose not to use it then we cannot offer cash refunds or reduction of package cost for non use of either. However we will offer you a maximum £25 credit against framed products purchased, this offer excludes our £95 voucher packages.

Q. Can I move or cancel my appointments?

We run a strict cancellation policy as time is precious at Serenity and our staff are booked out to you alone during your appointment, this is up to 4 members of staff. Should you need to re-arrange or cancel your appointment then we are happy to re-schedule so long as we receive more than 72 hours notice. If however your notice is less than this then we will charge a £39 short notice fee. This fee is to cover the costs of our hair and make-up stylists lost revenue.

Q. Are prints included in the price of the session fee?

A print is included in your session fee unless otherwise stated. Please check before buying to see what is included as it will be stated and varies from time to time. Your session fee covers the cost of a hair stylist, a make-up artist and John & Debbie for you photography. It also covers your studio time, editing costs, print, viewing, online gallery and everything else included in your session which will last up to 3 hours. All this makes it outstanding value.

Q. Is there a minimum spend?

The minimum spend is your session fee. It is your choice wether you order images and products during a viewing session, there is no hard sell from us. However we hope you love your photographs so much (especially after the effort you have put in) that you do order from us. As a guide the average spend on products during a viewing is £250+
