Portland Boudoir for Women and Couples

questions | Arkady Brown Photography | Portland, OR Boudoir




Who do you work with and how?

I work with women and couples of all sorts. 

My individual sessions focus on the the individual and their connection to themselves where as my couples sessions are all about the intimacy and connection between the two individuals. 

My individual clients are usually celebrating something big: getting married, post baby, weight transformation, anniversary, milestone birthday (30, 40, 50, even 60!) Where my couples clients are people who have been together for a good while and are ready to see their love and passion photographed and made into art.

How do I prepare? What about hair, makeup and lingerie?

Have no fears, we have you covered! Once you've booked and paid your session fee, you will receive a Preparation Guide that helps you prepare for your session. You will never be asked to change your looks for your session, but you will be asked to do self care and a little pampering. 

All of our sessions include professional hair and makeup, this is for several reasons, but the main reason is because this is about pampering you from start to finish which will help you look and feel the best for your session. 

Lingerie is not mandatory for a session. I do have some body suits and gorgeous accessories that clients are welcomed to use. I do ask that you bring a proper fitting bra, a simple black and nude thong, and some personal items. These are things that we will discuss during your phone consultation.

How much does a session cost?

Our session fee starts at $500 and includes professional hair and makeup including false lashes, 2 hour session, access to client wardrobe,  image retouching, and an in-person photo reveal of your images within 1-2 weeks after your session.

Minimum Product Investment starts at $600

When do I get to see my photographs for the first time?

After your session, we'll meet again within one week. You will see all of your final images on a slide show, and together, we will select the images that you want to purchase. Here you will also get to see all of the various products I offer and together, we will select what's best for your needs. 

This will also be the time when you either fully purchase your products or enter into a payment plan agreement. 

I don't want my images shared, is it mandatory?

Let me be the first to say that I take my client's privacy and wishes very seriously. I give all clients 5 different model releases to choose from. You as the client get to decide if I use your images or not. 

Any images you see in my portfolio, website, or social media are shared because the client has given me permission. 

It's NOT a requirement.
