FAQ

How do I book a session?
You can book either an Individual Session or Boudoir Event session and both are conducted in my favorite boutique locations through out the DC and Northern Virginia areas. For Individual sessions, the session fee of $600 is due to hold your date and time. For Boudoir event sessions a $250 retainer is due to hold your date and time and the remaining balance of your chosen collection will be on due on the day of your session. Email me at hello@juliesocherphotography.com and I will send you an invoice to book your boudoir session.

Can I bring a friend to my session?
Absolutely! Just let me now ahead of time that you are bringing a friend. Females only please.

Can my husband/boyfriend come to my session?
Boyfriends and husbands that are present during your shoot actually change the overall mood of your session and may actually make you more nervous. We want you to be comfortable and relaxed so that it reflects in your photos. So this is a boyfriend/husband free zone! They are welcome to wait in the lobby during your session.

When should I schedule?
I would book your boudoir session far in advance to make sure you get your prints and albums in time. Because of the custom nature of albums, they take the longest turn around time.

Where do you shoot?
I conduct my sessions on location  in my favorite boutique locations through out the DC and Northern Virginia areas during scheduled boudoir marathon dates and for scheduled individual sessions. Check out the dates I have available here.

What is the difference between an Individual Session and Boudoir Event Session?
Individual Sessions can be booked on a date outside of my scheduled boudoir events. There are no limits on outfits and time and you are the only session scheduled that day.  You are also able to choose the exact product you want a la carte options. Boudoir events are pre-scheduled through out the year with multiple appointments through out the day. There are limits on time and outfits depending on your chosen collection. Collections are based on the most popular items. If there is something you you want in particular that is not in a collection, let me know and I can create a custom collection for you.

I’m ready to book, what do I do?
Once you are ready to book, I will be forwarding you a boudoir contract to look over and sign as well as an invoice to pay your session fee or retainer online. Once those two items are received I will be forwarding you details on the location as well as my “How to Prepare” guide.

What should I wear/bring?
Bring a variety of lingerie that makes you feel the best. Other items include his shirt, tank tops, boy shorts, heels…the options are endless. I encourage you to bring your own accessories too, but I have some on hand that can be used. Bring a variety of outfits. Most importantly, bring what makes you feel comfortable and sexy! It’s up to you on how much you want to show.

What about my hair and makeup?
Professional hair and makeup is provided for every session. Pro MUA’s know how to apply camera ready makeup and will advise on what will look best. I work with a variety of highly talented Hair and Makeup Professionals that will be onsite for your session! False eyelashes are also applied to complete your look. I know, I know, they seem a little much, but they look fantastic on camera. Your eyes will pop!

Can I reschedule?
Yes! Your retainer/session fee is transferable to another date only 1 time. If you are unable to make the new date or forget about your appointment and want to reschedule again you must pay another sessions fee/retainer to hold your new date and time.

Do you edit the photos?
Yes. All photos you view are fully edited.

When do I see my photos?
Within 2-3 weeks, I will upload your proofs to a private online viewing gallery.

How long does it take to receive my prints/album?
Prints can come as soon as a week, but albums and other products can take up to 3 weeks. So be sure to schedule ahead if you’re gifting your photos/album.

I’m not sure what to order, can I decide after viewing my photos?
Yes! After you’ve viewed your photos, you can decide then on what product you’d like. 50% of the product total is due to begin any design and when it’s ready to ship is when the remaining balance is due.

Whose going to see my images?
You are the only one that will see your images or anyone you share your gallery with. I won’t post anything on my blog or website without your signed permission.

What is your refund policy?
Becasue of the custom nature of my boudoir sessions are products and albums, are sales are final. However you are involved in every step during the design and have the final say before anything goes to print.
