boudoir mentoring

CJBP:Voyeur  Boudoir Mentoring

I absolutely love what I do, I am excited everyday to go to work, to empower women and men, to celebrate them exactly as they are.  I love to share this passion with others, and present my unique method of boudoir photography to other boudoir photographers.  In a mentoring session with me, you will learn about my client-centered methods.  It is important to me that each client is their own version of sexy, not some made up version that is seen as socially acceptable.  Not everyone's version of sexy includes lingerie at all, and that's fine.  In mentoring, I will cover:

-How to build your own brand based on something nobody can compare with- yourself!

-How to use social media effectively to promote your brand

-How to gain confidence in shooting boudoir

-How to build your portfolio

-Business communication skills- this part is taught by my husband/business manager

-Different aspects of boudoir photography

-Defining and expanding your comfort zone

-Working with hair/makeup artists 

-Posing to celebrate a client's unique body type and style

-Using flow posing to get a large amount of usable images in a short amount of time

-my quick method of culling and editing- I never spend more than an hour editing any session

 

During your mentoring session, you will observe me shoot a session from start to finish, with opportunities for you to shoot alongside me.  I don't understand using professional models for boudoir mentoring sessions, since models already know how to pose and are already comfortable in front of a camera!  We will shoot a client who has never had a boudoir shoot before so that you can have an authentic experience posing them and getting them comfortable.  I will customize your mentoring session for the type of boudoir/type of body type you'd like to shoot. 

You will receive your own boudoir session, with edited images with print release, as part of your mentoring package.  This is non-negotiable, as I truly believe to be a great boudoir photographer you need to be able to feel what it feels like to be vulnerable and be in front of the camera yourself.  If you would like professional hair/makeup for your session, that is an additional $100. I never require professional hair/makeup. 

Cost for 1:1 mentoring is $1500.  If you would like to schedule a 2:1 session with a friend, it is $1150 each and you will each be the models for the shoot. 

Mentoring is held at my home studio in Franklin, Indiana.  It is possible for me to come to you if you prefer.  If you are coming from out of town, we will be happy to host you at our home for a night.
