What can you expect during a couples session at Studio NOVA?
Whether you've had an, erotica, or boudoir session elsewhere before, or this is your first time ever, here is everything you need to know about our studio, and what to expect when booking as a couple.
WHAT SHOULD WE BRING? Boudoir can be created from anything. Bring whatever you have in mind, and I'll work my magic, even if you bring NOTHING!
Please bring a thin, easy to hide skin coloured, black, or white thong for wearing under client closet items.
We suggest that men bring a few pairs of boxers that are fresh, and neutral, as well as any coloured/patterned underwear you enjoy. Remember what you and your partner will be wearing together when deciding on colours. We are always here if you'd like to send over some images of items for us to help you pick!
Men shoot well in boxers and a t-shirt. Shots with an open button--up are also excellent, and allow for female partners to wear the oversized shirt at some point during the session. White/black/grey/beige/olive/navy/plum all work well.
Some couples have special items like matching shirts, their own BDSM toys, etc. Please bring anything you'd like.
SO...WHAT HAPPENS DURING A COUPLES SHOOT???
WHEN WE SHOOT - VIDEOS OR PHOTOS-IT IS ALL POSED!
Once you two arrive, we greet you at the door, and let you take off your shoes! I'll get you to lay out what you've brought to wear, as well as look at the client closet to decide on your looks. You'll decide which look you're most comfortable in by having as much time as you need to try things on! You will have a private room to change and a rack to hang your items. Then, we will discuss your session, as well as nude/implied shots, and decide if this is something you'd like to do. We revisit what these mean later in this blog post.
From there, if you've included makeup, we start with consulting about your desired look. This process takes about an 45min-1hour. YOUR FIRST OUTFIT
Once ready to shoot, I typically ask you to change into the outfit you feel most comfortable in. I save the spicy looks for last, as you're more comfortable posing by that point.
I start couples in full lingerie, as well as a shirt and boxers for males. The goal is to have you get comfortable shooting, in simple, less revealing poses just until you feel more in the zone.
HOW POSING WORKS
A lot of couples seem to forget I am there, get really into the session, holding and caressing each-other until we are in the next pose. This is a very intimate experience for you and your partner. Penis owners may find themselves aroused, and this is very normal-you should be aroused by your sexy partner! Please know that I am prepared for this to happen, and that it is totally okay.
You will kiss chests, hands, backs and legs. You will caress/hold your partner's breasts, shoulders, thighs, and butts. Poses are based on, for lack of a better explanation, sex and cuddling positions.
Will we see your genitals?
Not unless you want us to. Like solo boudoir, you are in charge, and decide how the session looks. From all clothes in lingerie, to full nude erotica, we will shoot you as YOU request. Some couples want to imply a sex act, while others are looking for soft, intimate portraiture.
As far as sexual content, we want to make your dreams come true.
Whatever that looks like to you, we will do our best to execute it!
Here is a behind the scenes video of a couples session, where they got extra spicy and implied some sex acts:
We will move around the entire 535SF studio, ensuring you have a mix of lighting, moods, and colours. If there is an area you don't want to shoot in, just say! Sessions can also take place in one studio area if you wish. I have the ability to guide you through tricks and poses you feel comfortable doing, making sure your face, feet, chest and arms all look as they should.
First, tenth, or hundredth, time being photographed - it can sometimes prove to be difficult to know what to do while in front of a camera. I am here to help! Rather than feeling awkward, drawing blanks as to how to position both limbs and face, you are gently led through the experience by a professional-ME! I clearly communicate instructions, with simple and concise language that anyone can understand and follow. More than that, I doesn’t just tell, I show, performing the pose for you while explaining it, ensuring that nothing is lost in translation, and making minor adjustments as needed. This way, the client feels confident that the image being created shows up as best as possible, and remains worry free about what they may look like. Guided posing eliminates any fear that one might not be capturing their best angles on camera due to anxiety, inexperience, or anything in between. If you two feel uncomfortable or don't like a pose for any reason, we won't do it. Simply say " I don't think I like that idea" and we will move on! We also take requests if there is something you'd like to try from our other images!
Do you have experience posing and working with a range of body types? Yes, and no session will differ due to your body type. All clients are shot the same, with the exception of anything the client requests to include or not include. Can I shoot 100% naked? We will shoot clients however they request! STYLING SUGGESTIONS: After we've shot your lingerie looks, I always ask if you'd like to do any nude, or implied nude (no visible nipples or bits) to finish your session. This is at your discretion.
KINK BASED POSES:
We are completely comfortable shooting your kink-just ask before your session so we know! This is a judgement free zone. Feet? Sure. Nipple sucking? You bet. BDSM? OBVIOUSLY!
Toys and props are also welcome!
FULLY CLOTHED: Includes images of you and your partner in full lingerie, or under wear.
IMPLIED NUDE: Implied nude shots will include images of you either topless, or bottomless. Bottomless shots are only posed when the crotch area is covered. Implied nude shots will include images of you either topless, or full nude, posed to hide your nipples and intimate areas. Some clients wear bottoms, or nothing, and only pose when their areas are covered.
Implied poses with your partner often include having your partner's hand(s) or body covering your nipples/crotch.
SEMI-FULL NUDE: Semi-Full nude shots will include images of you semi or full nude-topless and bottomless. We will shoot genitalia and full-chest. We cover the crotch area at your discretion. Shooting erotica includes full genitalia, if you wish.
AFTER THE SESSION: You can expect a proof gallery usually within the 7 days following your session. A proof gallery is a lightly touched-up sample gallery of your images before they've gone through the editing process. This gallery is sent to your email address. From there, select your images to be fully edited using the 'heart' icon. You may select images to be fully edited. If you select too many, they can easily be un- favourited, or you may purchase additional images. Once you've reviewed images, tell me if I can share them online, or if you'd like them to be private by filling out an attached form. Final images are sent to you within 14 days of finalizing your images. Access the gallery, then use the included case-sensitive password and 4-digit PIN to download photos directly to your computer or device.
ALL BODIES ARE WELCOME IN OUR SPACE Studio NOVA cultivates an environment where the model feels comfortable in their own bodies, and empowered by the art that they make! PREPPING FOR A SESSION: Boudoir is a full-body experience, where both your mind and body are working at once! If this is your first time, you might feel a little nervous going into your session, and that's normal! The most important thing to remember, is we're here to give YOU an experience, and YOU are in full control of the session. Don't be nervous. We've seen all of the bits and pieces of the human body, and nothing can surprise us.
As a couple, you have each-other for comfort, and can always change and find your headspace in our private changing area.
We have special pricing when you combine services like video, photo, makeup, or Polaroids.
Many clients compare this experience to a "work out" or "yoga". Please come prepared to move your body. We have water in studio if you need a drink.

Wear loose fitted clothing. Jeans/tight clothes could leave marks on your body, and make more work in editing.
