Boudoir Bringing Sexy Back
PHOTOGRAPHY BY LUCIA CINTRA
It all started a few years ago when one of my brides asked if I would shoot her boudoir session and I fell in love with this type of photo shoot right away. It became one of my passions to find the beauty in others and most importantly, helping them see it too. From planning and personalizing the photo shoot, going over outfits and hair and makeup ideas based on how youâ€™d like to be photographed, the entire experience is always so much fun! You will feel pampered, sexy and empowered from beginning to end. It has been so fulfilling to help women see how beautiful they truly are! And thereâ€™s no better feeling than to be able to give them classy and timeless images that will forever show their true essence and personalities into gorgeous photographs. Book now for a makeover and boudoir photoshoot. You deserve to feel special and I would love the opportunity to give you an amazing experience!
The Full Experience What to expect: Please take a moment to browse through this magazine and my online portfolio at www.luciacintra.com/boudoir to learn a little bit more about the session and examples of my work. Contact me with any questions you might have along the way. Below you’ll find detailed information on what’s included with the session fee:
Boudoir Session - $200 • • • • • • •
Includes professional hair and makeup 2 hour session $100 credit towards any prints and products Three to Four outfit changes Professional retouching of every final image Complimentary wardrobe & beauty consultation Your Reveal and Ordering session
Based on how you’d like to display and/ or keep your images, different packages and ‘a la carte’ items such as print and products are available for you to choose from. Please see page 14 for detailed pricing.
Preparation: Once you book a shoot, you’ll receive a welcome email from me containing a questionnaire, contract, model release and invoice for the photo session. The session must be paid in full before your date is reserved and the contract and model release signed at that time. The questionnaire can be completed and returned to me at least one week before your photo shoot, which will help me create your dream boudoir experience when we go over the session at a complimentary consultation. You will also receive a link to my private boudoir portfolio and Pinterest boards with fun ideas for wardrobe, hair and makeup. Important things to remember: • I would advise against tanning beforehand since orange toned, tan lines and sometimes flaking skin from it does not look good on camera and there will be an additional fee for extensive retouching if needed. • If you plan on waxing or having your hair cut/ colored, do it a few days in advance to make sure you are happy with the results. • Plan on getting your nails done, since there might be a few close up shots that will include your hands, especially if you are a bride. • Hydrate and moisturize your skin. • If you plan on wearing hair extensions or false eyelashes, please let me know ahead of time. My makeup artist can also provide false eyelashes and they are so worth it! What to Wear: Prior to your photo shoot I will help you put some ideas together as to what to wear based on how you’d like to be photographed. You can wear whatever makes you feel sexy, from just a long sweater or T-shirt to a little black dress or beautiful and barely there lingerie. You can reveal as much or as little as you want.
How about hair and makeup? Just as we will cover your wardrobe, I will also go over ideas with you about your hair and makeup that would best match the type of photos you are looking to have. My team of hair and makeup artists are the best at what they do. They understand that photography makeup differs from normal makeup and they know just how to make you feel sexy and confident for the camera. At the studio: While you are getting glamoured up, we will go over everything that you brought and I will give you suggestions on what will look and photograph the best on you for the type of look you have in mind. After the shoot you will feel glamourous, confident and sexy! Your viewing and Ordering Session: About 1 to 2 weeks later I will invite you back to the studio for your viewing and ordering session. You will get to see your own customized slideshow with all your gorgeous, fully edited photos. From there, we’ll go over your images together and choose which products you like best. I will have different samples of albums, folio and glass boxes, metal wall art or canvas, among other options, so you can choose the style and sizes that are most appealing to you. One ordering Session: There is only one complimentary viewing and ordering session. Please make sure ALL decision makers are present as this will be your time to purchase product and prints and any images not chosen that day will not be archived. Payment is due upon ordering and I do offer payment plans. Your order: Once you’ve made your selections, I’ll take care of creating any needed designs (if an album is ordered) and submitting your order to my labs. I only use the best high quality printing labs so rest assured that everything you receive will be the finest print and/or product in the industry. Deliveries usually take between 2 - 4 weeks after full payment is received.

FAQ I’m nervous about the photoshoot. Do you have any advice? Being nervous is totally normal and my clients always comment on how comfortable they feel and how much fun they are having while shooting. Your nerves will dissapate in 5 minutes into the shoot, I promise. Can I bring a friend to the photo shoot? Only females are allowed in the studio during the session so feel free to bring a friend or better yet, book a session together and you can have fun watching each other’s shoots and have a girl’s day at the studio. Males are only allowed during the order appointment if you want him to help choose his favorite images and products. Is there a minimum amount I must spend? Prints and products are sold a la carte and are an additional fee. If you don’t love your images you don’t have to purchase anything, but don’t worry, that never happens. The session fee is due to book your appointment and it covers my time and the makeup artist. Most clients spend $500 and up on their portraits. All decision makers must be at the appointment as all unordered images will not be archived. Digital images are not included with the photo shoot and will only be available for viewing at the ordering session. If order appointment needs to
be rescheduled, a fee will apply. Payment plans are available to make it easy on all budgets. Do you offer payment plans? Yes, payment plans are available and I would be happy to discuss them with you during our meeting. Your total can be split in 2 to 5 installments after a down payment of 25% is received. Please keep in mind that I can’t place any orders until everything is paid in full. All sales are final. How long will it take to see my photos? Once your photos are edited, I will meet with you for an ordering session as soon as one to two weeks after the photo shoot. How long does my order take? Orders take between 2 - 5 weeks. If you need it sooner, a rush fee will apply. What if I have to reschedule my appointment? I understand that things come up so I have a 48 hour cancellation policy for the photo shoot. Rescheduling in less than 48 hours will incur a $50 rescheduling fee. The ordering session can be rescheduled with a 24 hour notice, however, once you’ve had your ordering session and no prints or products were purchased, images are not archived so all orders must take place at the ordering session, no exceptions.

Kind Words Lucia is such a talented photographer! I was super nervous about having a boudoir shoot, but she is someone who makes you feel like you are talking to an old friend. She had me so excited about the session while planning it with me and she made me feel incredibly comfortable at the session. My hair and makeup were amazing and I couldn’t stopped staring at myself. Although I’m super picky with my body,
Thank you again for making me feel more com time I actually have professional photos that ar something I will treasure forever. Lauren
From the moment I contacted Lucia for my boudoir shoot, I knew I had to work with her. Not only is her work beautiful, but she is very prompt in getting back to you and very throughout when it comes to planning the shoot. She wants to get to know you a little bit so she can personalize the session just for you and she had a lot of ideas for my wardrobe, hair and makeup, based on what I had in mind. Her makeup artist Kelly made me feel so beautiful and pampered and I had so much fun that time flew by. I felt sexy and confident and couldn’t wait to see all the photos. She is truly talented and she did an amazing job. Judith
Hi Lucia, those photos blew me away, I can’t be turned out. It was so hard picking just a few for love the surprise! Thanks again! Tania
s from Clients Lucia knew exactly how to pose me to make me look and feel gorgeous the entire time. I’m so in love with my photos that it was really hard to pick just one for my canvas, so I ended up also getting a photo book with it. The entire experience is totally worth it, her work is amazing and the photos are sexy and classy! I’d recommend Lucia to anyone! Stephanie

elieve how gorgeous they r the album and I think Dan will
I have to say that I was pretty nervous about the photoshoot, but Lucia has this way about her that makes you feel completely at ease. While Kelly was making me feel gorgeous with hair and makeup, we chatted about my wardrobe and talked like we knew each other for years! The end result were amazing photos of myself and my album turned out beautiful. My fiancee was very suprised and still can’t stop looking at the album. Clara
There’s many reasons why women choose to have a boudoir session: • Brides looking for an unique gift to surprise their groom on the wedding day (I have shot quite a few of those and the surprise and happy look on their husband-to-be faces when they see the book is priceless). • To use photographs as a gift for a significant other on a special occasion or just because. • To celebrate a milestone such as a 30th, 40th or even 50th birthday. • A fun girl’s day. • A gift to yourself, to remind you of that sexy side still in you. Life can get pretty hectic and often times we women tend to think of ourselves last. So set aside some time to enjoy a moment of pampering and let yourself feel amazing and empowered with a photo shoot that is all about you. I’ve been a photographer for close to 4 years now and I have studied and trained with the best all about lighting, body posing and composition and I can guarantee you that you will not only have an amazing and fun experience, but also will look absolutely gorgeous on your photographs. Don’t worry about losing those 5+ pounds, book now, you deserve it! My goal is to make every woman see how beautiful they are at this very moment in their lives. I’m so excited that you are interested in boudoir photography! Not only will you have an amazing and empowering experience, but you will also get to take home products that will forever remind you of how amazing you truly are!
