This is something I know a lot of people struggle with! What is the difference between the different types of boudoir photography? Well, with fine art boudoir, it focuses heavily on the details, and the emotion. It is less posed, with soft light, and a healthy amount of grain. Okay, the grain is optional, but I LOVE it. Boudoir is about so much more than just being
and feeling sexy, it's about celebrating your life and journey and body the way it is RIGHT NOW. It's about knowing your worth, and embracing your femininity, because no one else does it like you do. Most of all, it's about doing something for YOU! Sure, it's a great gift idea for your significant other, but you are doing this because YOU want to. Let's make something stunning.
Although Peaches & Twine is technically a husband & wife team, all boudoir sessions will be conducted by only Hannah. There may be some special circumstances where there will be an assistant present, but that assistant will ALWAYS be female. We want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible!
We require 50% down payment when you make your reservation, and the remaining is due a week before your session. We do all of our invoicing online, but if you prefer to pay another way, like cash or check, a meeting can be arranged!
It is available! In our "Belle" collection, it is already included in the session fee. If you choose to go with a different collection, it is an extra $150 to work with our beloved professional beauty team! We suggest that you go with a professional for these services either way, as they are the experts at knowing what photographs & flatters you best! The time that it takes for the beauty services are not included in the session timeframe.
We have a full service boudoir studio, complete with a wardrobe closet, refreshments, and anything you will need for a beautiful boudoir session, from start to finish. The studio is located in downtown Mesa at 54 S Center Street, Suite B, Mesa, AZ 85210. Studio sessions aren't necessarily for everyone though, so if this is the case for you, we are more than happy to come to your home to have your session in the comfort of your own bedroom, or if you are feeling adventurous, we can conduct your session outdoors! We have a few favorite secluded spots around town that we have thoroughly scoped, ensuring we are away from onlookers, for your complete privacy. Just let us know your preference!
Prior to your session with us, make sure that you get plenty of rest! This is number one. A close second is to drink plenty of water! When you are well-rested and hydrated, your skin and hair and eyes SING! You are more in the zone, you are able to channel your inner feminine warrior. Some other things to make sure you have are: whatever outfits you would like to wear, touch up makeup (if you get your makeup and hair done elsewhere), and any little details that tell your story like love letters, jewelry, pictures, etc. A couple of last tips are if you are planning to get anything waxed, make sure you do it a couple days ahead of time, to ensure there is no swelling or irritation. If you have tan lines that you don't want pictured, stay out of the sun for a week or two (depending on the severity of the tan), and bring bronzer with you in case you are still rocking that bikini temp tattoo! Anything else really varies from session to session. Just be in good communication with Hannah and she will make sure you have everything you need!
We can! Hannah has been collecting pieces for a while, so that our clients can have those extra feminine touches & fine art look. You can see our inventory here. We are adding to it all the time, so if there is something that we feel would truly add to your shoot, we will let you know! Otherwise, feel free to give yourself an excuse to go out and buy something feminine for yourself.
This is completely up to you! Some women strip completely down, and some will stay almost fully clothed. This is all up to you and your comfort level. Just know that if you do decide to get completely nude, even if you sign a model release, we will make sure those images are never seen by the public, unless you explicitly say otherwise! Nudity is beautiful, and when done right, doesn't have to be sexual. The whole purpose of our time together is not to create something pornographic, but rather feminine and romantic. Sometimes this means your clothes are off, sometimes it means you're completely dressed. Just let Hannah know your comfort level so that she doesn't suggest something you don't want to do!
Yes! We know that chances are pretty great that you've never done anything like this before. Hannah will guide the entire session, from start to finish, ensuring that all parties are comfortable, secure, and happy. We have a good amount of experience in posing women in such a setting, and we know what positions are flattering for different body types.
Yes! Our style follows the raw, organic feel of film, and as such, film at your session is a must!
We generally allow up to 4 weeks after the session for all of the finished products to be delivered. As far as the album goes, once your digital files are finished, Hannah will ask you to see your gallery and pick out x amount of images to go into the album, and she will design and order it for you. Fulfillment through our pro album company varies from 1-2 weeks, so how quick you receive your album is up to you and how quickly you can select your favorites!
Absolutely! If you ask to not be named or tagged, we are more than happy to keep your identity a secret! Regardless, we will never name or tag you online, unless you specifically want us to, and we promise not to use any photos that show nudity anywhere in our portfolio or online without express permission. The chances of somebody you know seeing these images are very slim, so why not share your beauty with the world?
