1. Introduction: What's your story?
Hi! I'm Keeley Miller. I have been a photographer for more than ten years, and now photograph boudoir full time.
As someone who has struggled with body image my entire life, I am incredibly passionate about helping women reconnect and celebrate their bodies. It's the best job in the world and I am so grateful that I get to be a part of showing you how beautiful you already are!
2. What is your experience shooting boudoir?
I started my journey with boudoir over five years ago after working for years as a wedding and portrait photographer. I knew I wanted to do more with my business, and began photographing empowerment sessions for women. I realized that a boudoir photoshoot can be so much more than just sexy photos -- it truly is a transformative, empowering experience to celebrate your self and your body in this light. I am honored that this is now my full time job!
3. Where will the photo shoot take place?
I offer photoshoots in my private loft studio in the heart of downtown San Diego, near the Gaslamp Quarter and the San Diego Convention Center. I keep a variety of backdrops, outfits, props, and different lighting setups in my studio so your photoshoot is truly customizable.
4. How should customers prepare for the Boudoir photo shoot?
I've got you fully covered with a free consultation, 20 page prep guide, and even a one-on-one video planning call before your photoshoot day where I will even put together a packing list for you. I'll truly be here to help every step of the way!
5. Will there be a hairstylist and make-up artist?
Yes! Professional hair and makeup is included. No need to stress about doing it yourself!
6. What do you do to make your customers feel comfortable for the shoot?
If you are like 99% of my clients, you have never done anything like this before, and it is likely out of your comfort zone (being photographed in your chonies by a lady you found on the internet is definitely a scary step)!
The good news is you are not alone! I have photographed hundreds of women and have spent years refining an experience that will leave you not only with gorgeous artwork of your gorgeous self, but with a day of fun and self love that will have you strutting out of the studio doors.
Before your photoshoot, we will have multiple consultation and planning calls to not only plan your big day and answer questions, but also so you can get to know me. During your photoshoot, we will have the music turned up so we can dance it out, and I'll help guide you through every pose. All you have to do is show up and my team and I will take it from there.
And if you want to bring a friend with you to help calm those nerves, that's totally okay too. Your comfort is incredibly important to me!
7. Are pictures printed or do you provide a digital file?
After your photoshoot day, we will sit down together to look at your photos and pick your favorites. My experience options include both prints and digital files, so you won't have to choose one or the other or pay extra. You deserve it all!
8. What happens on the day?
On your big day, we will start with hair and makeup styling at the studio, then the fun begins with our photoshoot time. We will have your reveal and order selection directly after your photoshoot so you won't have to wait to see and select your favorites. I don't book any back to back clients, so you will get to relax and enjoy a day all for you.
It's definitely a full day experience, so I do highly recommend not booking anything else for that day so you can have the best, most stress-free experience possible!
9. Where will the photographs be used?
Your photographs will NEVER be shared without your explicit permission. You can decide share nothing at all, show off all your stunning photos, or just a few. You have complete control. Your privacy and comfort is extremely important to me.
10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?
We require a $500 non-refundable retainer to secure your date. We do keep rain dates open in case of situations out of your control.
