In this business, we try our best to make sure that we have always been communicating and are clear on what our client’s boundaries and comfort level is with the session. So it is rare for us to run into cases where we suggest something that a client is not comfortable with, however, it does happen and in today’s blog post we wanted to take a second to highlight what happens in this situation.
Saying no can be scary for a lot of people, but especially so in a situation like the one you would find yourself in with your erotic boudoir session. However, we want to make sure that you know that you are always able (and encouraged!) to say no if something is suggested that doesn’t feel right to you. We don’t want you to do something just because we had an idea, when a pose or concept is asked about, you should actually think about it and if you are comfortable with that. If you are, great we will go ahead and shoot. If you are not, or even if you are simply on the fence about it, we recommend you simply say no or that you aren’t comfortable with that shot.
We won’t get mad if you say no, we won’t get sad if you say no. Our policy is that once you indicate to us that the idea posed is not within your comfort zone we say ‘Ok, how about this…’ and move on to another idea. This is not a place where you will need to worry about being poked, prodded, or pestered about saying no. In fact, we may even thank you for having the courage to speak up, because we know how scary that idea can be for some of you.
But going back to our original point, our goal is that we have spoken with you enough ahead of your shoot that we have a clear understanding of what you feel comfortable with at this erotic boudoir session. In most cases, we able to go through the entire session shooting images that are well within our clients comfort zone. So the chances are, if you book with us, you won’t even have to worry about needing to decline any sort of content that you aren’t comfortable with. But in the off chance that you do, feel at ease knowing that we are happy to respect your boundaries and will actively encourage you to speak up if at any point you don’t feel comfortable with where we are going. This shoot is about you and your journey, and we are happy to calibrate our creative vision to fit within whatever boundaries that you set!
