Your experience

I don’t just love shooting boudoir, I love giving my clients a memorable experience.  I have listened to my clients’ needs and desires over the years and developed two different experiences to cater for women looking for a boudoir experience to suit them.

I ALWAYS WORK WITH AN ALL WOMEN TEAM – hostess, make up artist, retoucher and office assistant.

I offer ‘The Discovery Experience’  and ‘The Signature Experience’.  Below are detailed explanations of how they work to help you decide which is the best option for you.

I am also delighted to share my BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO to show exactly what you can expect from a Discovery Experience (event location and team members may vary from the video)

A bespoke experience where we will work together to design a look and feel unique to you.

The experience includes:Signature boudoir experience by Clares Boudoir 2

– A pre-shoot consultation. This can be in person or over skype or telephone.We will discuss what you want to achieve, any personal goals and the type of images you want to create.

– We will jointly build a ‘mood board’ (a collection of images you like) to help guide the styling.

– You are encouraged to discuss your wardrobe choices- feel free to send me snaps of things you are considering. I always love seeing these pop up in my inbox!!

– We will discuss your plans for make up and hair and book the required stylists. Usually, with the bespoke shoot, clients choose to go for multiple make up looks, perhaps starting with a natural look and then adding smoky eyes and stronger lips…

– Together we will select a location that suits the style you wish to achieve. This could be a hotel, your home or another location. This can help create a very different feel for the shoot – for example we can opt for a vintage style hotel or a grungy loft with brick walls…
– The Signature Experience offers the flexibility to schedule the shoot for a date that suits your schedule and fits in with any special occasions you may wish to have the images ready for.
