Don’t be shy, girl! You have questions, we have answers! <3

First off, why choose Fangting R Photography?

We, at Fangting r Photography, are devoted to providing you with the best quality photos you can receive. You deserve to have beautiful photos to capture your special moments so you can cherish them forever. As for boudoir, we know it can seem intimidating, but we do everything in our power to make you feel comfortable and beautiful in your own skin! Doing a boudoir shoot feels empowering and helps you to embrace yourself. It is an amazing confidence boost. And it is our honor to be there with you to help you experience that. You are beautiful and powerful. We will work together to make it happen =)

I’m really nervous, do you have any advice to help with this?

Being in front of the camera can be nerve-wracking, even being fully clothed! We completely understand this and make sure our studio environment is uber comfortable. By the time you get your hair and makeup done and have put your outfit on, you will be ready to go! We are all about making sure you feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful! There are some other things you can do to feel more at ease! Bring your iPod stored with your favorite music. Play the theme song that gets you pumped. If you need some liquid courage, there are bars conveniently located near my studio. Or bring some wine or champagne with you! Don’t get too crazy though. We want sexy professional photos, not Friday night party pictures, lol. Also, talk to us during the shoot. We are here for you! This is a no judgement zone. :)

How “sexy” is this photoshoot going to be?

Your boudoir shoot is all about YOU. We will talk about what you want to get out of the shoot. Sexy doesn’t have to mean taking off all your clothes. We can shoot anywhere from fully clothed to nude. The shoot is guided by your comfort level and needs.

Can I bring a friend or partner to the shoot? What about children?

Bring your bestie to with you if it makes you feel more comfortable! We ask that you limit it to one female friend to escort you to the shoot. They can stay with you during hair/makeup and outfit selection, but we ask that they not watch during the photoshoot. All the focus is meant to be on you, so the less people, the better! Your partner can accompany you during the photo proofing appointments (but let us know this in advance!), but we ask that they do not come during the shoot. Again, the focus on you. And while the company can be nice, it can also be distracting. And for need of having the least amount of distraction possible, we ask that you please do not bring children to the studio.

What about hair and makeup?

We do offer hair and makeup services at an additional cost. We have some fabulous professional MUAs that are available upon request to work their magic! If you would like to do your own hair and makeup styling, here are some recommendations we have. Style your hair as if you doing it for an evening out. Bring the “WOW” factor! As for makeup, make sure your foundation matches the skin of the rest of your body! The mismatched skin tones are impossible to fix, even in Photoshop! Put on your makeup heavier than usual. It may look strange to you, but it is needed to actually be seen in the photos. Choose a style and look that you feel most comfortable in, whether it be a more fresh-faced natural look or smokey-eyed bombshell.

What should I wear to the shoot? What should I bring to wear for the actual shoot?

Please come to the shoot wearing loose-fitting clothing. Tight clothing (such as bras, jeans, anything with elastic bands) creates marks on your body and we want to avoid that. Our studio will be warm (we even have a space heater!) but feel free to bring a robe and slippers/socks, so you can be cozy during breaks in shooting. As for what to wear, look through your closet and bust out the sexiest lingerie you have! Wear what you feel comfortable and confident in! Bring additional items to supplement the main outfit. Hats, heels, tights, all are welcome and make for a great photo!

Do you provide photo re-touching?

A basic level of retouching comes with the shoot (nobody wants any acne showing in their photos). But the amount of retouch is up to you. If you want completely natural, let us know. If you maybe want a little extra done, discuss that with me and we will see what we can do.

Will my photos ever be sold or published without my permission?

No way! Your privacy is of utmost importance to us. Your photos will only be viewed by you and those you choose to share them with. If you don’t mind them being posted publicly, you can specify that. All of the photos of clients that are shared publicly are only done so with the documented permission of the client. These photos are for your eyes only and whoever you would like to share them with. :)

When will I receive my photos?

Don’t worry girl, you will get a sneak peek of your shoot just a few days after the session! I will contact you when your photo session is complete. You will receive the completed photos in a private gallery for your viewing within 1-2 weeks after the session. Once uploaded, the photos will be available for one week for you to download. And during this time, feel free to contact me with any questions! You can also order photo albums and slideshows of your session; contact me for details about these extra services.

When should I schedule my session?

As the saying goes, “the early bird gets the worm.” AKA the earlier, the better. Please contact me to discuss what you are looking for in the session and a time frame for when you would like it to happen. Also, keep in mind that near certain holidays (Valentine’s Day and Christmas especially), boudoir sessions get booked like crazy! Your comfort is our priority!

How can I say thank you?

We love to hear back from you about how the shoot went! If you enjoyed yourself, definitely go give us a good review on social media, like Yelp and Facebook. That way, other people can be directed to us. The more people whose confidence we can boost, the happier we will be! Some of my clients have sent me thank you cards or gifts and these mean the world to me. I treasure these kind gestures and feel honored when a client is happy with our services.

Anything else?

Just remember girl, this shoot is all about you. It is for YOU. These photos are for you to always remember that you are sexy, beautiful, and powerful. Feel this, both inside and outside of the studio. Walk around with that confidence every day. <3

How do I pay?

You can pay online or over the phone with a credit or debit card. Or if you’d prefer to pay in person, you may schedule an appointment with the studio to do so. The session fee must be paid in full in order to schedule a date for the photoshoot.

Are there any discounts?

With valid ID, active military members and their spouses receive a 10% discount off all of our photo packages. However, it does not apply to the session fee itself.

Can I reschedule the session? Do I get a refund if I need to cancel?

If you call us within 72 hours after initially booking the appointment, you may reschedule once with no penalty. After that, it will cost $40 every time you reschedule the appointment. There are no refunds of session fees if you choose to cancel your appointment. A lot of time and effort gets put into these shoots and making sure you receive the best services, so please be sure that the date you choose is the best one for you!
