Some of our favorite moments in the studio with our muses.
"My boudoir experience with Layra was incredible! I felt super confident with her direction behind the camera. I felt like a badass goddess completely owning my feminine body and energy. My husband also loved the photos (which was just a bonus)!"
"Honestly there's nothing sexier than an empowered woman, and there's nothing more empowering than taking photos of your naked body. The final product is everything I ever dreamed of. Thank you, Layra!"
" Layra creates a space to laugh, express yourself, and redefine the boundaries of your comfort zone, safely. She’s so much fun to work with, turns over photos quickly, and the final photos are something you can fall in love with."
Nope! We've got you covered mama. My only recommendation is that if you have a favorite shade of lipstick that you want to use, bring it with you for retouching during the shoot, as our makeup staff will not be there during the shoot.
Do i need to bring my own makeup?
Yes dahhling! Hair and Make-up is provided by our incredible in-house MUA in the studio, to pamper you and get you ready for your shoot.
Is hair and makeup incluided?
Nope... It's an all women studio. Me and my Make-up squad ;) #girlpower
Are there men in your studio?
Wanna know a secret, i chose this genre of photography to step outta my comfort zone too. It has allowed me to connect with myself in ways i couldn't have imagined. And now I'm obsessed with Boudoir, trust and believe that on the first 5 min of the shoot all those nerves will go away. I too share your nerves on the first 5 min by the way. Im with you every step of this experience.
I've been meaning to do this for a while now but im a bit apprehensive still
I work with everyday women of all ages, shape, and size, no modeling experience needed. I'm here to guide and show you poses that will make you look and feel sexy and empowered. It's about having fun in the moment and leaving the shoot feeling beautiful and with a new found confidence.
But im not a model can i still do this?
DO i need to do anything to my hair before getting to the studio?
Just make sure is washed and dry before you get to the studio, we will take care of the rest! During our planning process you will get an opportunity to let us know if there is a specific look you would like. Other than that, we will make sure to fluff it up and get it ready for your photo sesh!
What is the investment?
There is a retainer fee of $495 to book the date of the shoot. This covers studio time, personal direction and posing from me, hair and make up, outfit guide, consultation zoom call, and saves your spot. The retainer does not include any images. Album and digital packages are offered separately.
I recommend my clients to always book at least a month in advance. This allows time for planning for your shoot, get your outfits ready. Because I offer pre-paid packages i offer to book out your photo session to give you enough time to pay off your package. Pre-paid plans are to be paid out before shoot date and are only available before your shoot date.
I don't know how to pose, will you help me with that?
No worries because I will be there to direct and guide you with all the poses every step of the way.
I do basic edits on your images (Blemishes, spots, other common issues) but I don't retouch as much as other photographers do because I want you to show off the real you. Celebrate yourself with all of your imperfections.
DO you photoshop?
With your permission only! All the clients i've featured on my social pages , have given me consent to use their images and share their story. Your privacy is very important to me. I share the images to inspire and to show other women what to expect during their boudoir experience.
Will you post my photos on the internet?
I created a detailed a PDF Boudoir Outfit Guide with ideas, examples, and accessories suggestions. I send it out during the planning portion, with plenty of time before your shoot so you can get to planning right of way.
What should i wear?
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?
How long is the session?
How long until i get my photos?
HOw far in advance should i book?
It takes about 2 weeks after the day of the shoot to edit and place the album order, and two weeks to receive the album.
Do you offer payment plans?
The session from beginning to end (this includes hair and makeup time) starts at 9am sharp. Expect to be in the studio for about3 hours to pamper yourself and have a great time!
We accept all major credit cards, Cash is popular when the photoshoot is a secret gift for a significant other. We also accept PayPal and Paypal Credit. (which is one of the payment plans available) We also offer our In-house** payment plan (you can choose 2, 4, or 6 month payment plans) No product order will be placed until payment is made in full.
Can I brinG A FRIEND/significant other?
At this moment due to COVID-19 restrictions in NYC, we are NOT allowing extra guests in the studio, to reduce risk. But not worries because i'll be your hype girl and cheerleader during the shoot, pinky promise.
** In-house payment plans are only available before the session.
Yes of course! I do same day Zoom photo reveals 3 hours after the shoot. There I will show you what we created together in the studio and will share with you a sample of your album. You get to choose the images you want in your album, and together we can figure out which album package works the best for you.
I currently create photo magic at FD Studios in Long Island City, Queens NY (Studio 1 is my fav!)
not sure what to order yet, can i decide when i see my photos?
